Guys, I don't know about y'all, but I'm just done with all of this. It feels like it's never going to end. My grandbabies are growing up and we don't get to see them. I asked my oldest son what size to get the girls and the youngest is in a 10 now. She's that tall and she's just going into kindergarten this year. The little conversations on the phone or on facetime is just not enough anymore.

We took supper and some groceries to my mil's tonight. Dementia is creeping in on her. She's home by herself most of the time. I already went down this road with my mom for the first 3 years we were here until she passed away last year. At the end, she couldn't talk or acknowledge us in any way. My grampa, her dad, went the same way. I just can't do this. She's a sweet lady and this damn lockdown is messing her up. It's messing all of us up.

Tonight. I realized I have to prep for her, too, but I have to keep it here. Otherwise, she'll see it and not remember why it's there and give it away. I can't get her to do a weekly list. She always waits til she's out of something and then we have to go get it for her. She's not used to having enough groceries in the house to last for awhile. Going to stores that often is starting to get to me. We only go to 2, but then we have to go to another to get a prescription and another to get something else. Any other time I wouldn't care, but people here don't wear masks right or not at all. I hate shopping these days. We run in, get what we need and leave.

I'm at my wits end. I haven't seen anyone but my mil and my 2 bils. I turned down my brother's invitation for the 4th because everyone from my side of the family was going to be there. Every other year, that would've been a reason to go. This year, not so much. I love them all, but they all work around alot of people. I can't take that chance. If my kidneys decide to shut down again, I don't think I'll make it. And then who would take care of mil? The guys are so dense sometimes when it comes to their mom.

HELP! If it weren't for y'all, I'd go bonkers.
