Am I the only one who feels this way, or is it not ridiculous, to tell someone not to worry. I feel worrying is involuntary. I worry a lot about different things. I tell myself,I am not going to let something get to me, and at times, it works, but most of the time,NOT.I feel I am not as bad about worrying now that I am retired, and don't have the job related stress, but there will always be other things to stress about. Mom is a huge source of stress in my life right now,with her being older and having so many age related problems. Mainly, dementia and the early stages of Alzheimer's,and to make bad matters worse, she has a dreadful cold of sorts.It's hard enough to care for an Alzheimer's patient, much less one who is sick in other ways.I worry more about that than anything else at the moment, but there is always the fact that I cannot be in my home tending to my own life's problems.Pop says he can take care of himself, and I need not worry about leaving him home alone, to care for Mom, but he hasn't convinced me of that, yet. He can't even keep the sugar bowl filled up. He doesn't know where I keep the sugar, or the cornmeal, or the flour.I could go on and on about things he does not know about running our household. He depends strictly on me, regardless of what he tells everyone.He can cook, or use to ,before we married, but cooking is a skill that requires a bit of practice. Not a lot, but some practice.He can fry his own cornbread. He can make a meal of that alone,with milk and tomatoes,if I lay out all of the ingredients ahead of time.No, he's not an invalid, just spoiled.

Pictured, are a few of my many hand made items that have been accumulating around the house. I am hoping we can sell several items to raise the money she needs for her I Pad. The next item on her Wish list is a Bow. She has already taken Archery classes, and wants her own bow. I'd better get busy crocheting more things to contribute to that sale.
