Caregiving can be exhausting, especially with all of my mother's issues, so I needed a mental health break. It was only a few days, but I decided that while my sister was here, and then while I was away, I would stay away from the news. How refreshing not to be bombarded by the plethora of negativity that occurs on a daily basis. It was a lovely break, on all levels. But now I'm back.
I hope everyone can take the time, every once in a while, to just tune out. Even for a few days. Even for a day.
