Today was and remains Christmas for about five more hours . I have been visiting my son and his family since Halloween and will be returning home New Year’s day.
It has been fun and came with challenges as is expected when you have any extended visit. The most fun was watching the kids play, hearing the baby giggle, listening to homework being done, and remembering back to those days with my own kids.
I have been able to visit with friends and have many laughs and talks about old times. The weather has been good to me. There was only one day so far, that was pretty cold.
The bad things that happened were internal with me. The internal tremors are slowing me down . My legs hurt and ache so much quicker than six months ago . My stomach tremors and causes stomach aches and loss of appetite . Parkinson makes me more tired than before. I feel like one of those nineteen eighty toys, weeble wobbles. I get pretty unsteady and one day here, I actually fell, bending over trying to find something . I hate bending over, even for a dishwasher .
Trying to fix the goodies that I have done for years, plain wears me out. I make one thing and I have to rest for a bit before I start fixing something eles . This year I used a couple of days to fix things for Christmas meals. It doesn’t hurt to do this. It just makes me recognize I have that invisible illness.
Tomorrow my daughter and my other son’s families will be here and we shall all celebrate together . I’m going to do my best not to look lazy, but I am just drained, and my body is worn out.
I hope all of you are enjoying your Christmas holiday. Hugs, me.
