Deja Vu all over Again

I've been lost in nostalgia for the last day. I found out about a site called LinkedIn and have been networking with old work colleagues from my first job out of college. We were a young group who grew quite close. This was back in the day before the computer industry became 'Dilbertized'. We worked hard but we also had a lot of fun. A whole lot of fun. One of my colleagues posted old photos of the group. Boy did that bring back the memories. I wanted to share this with Mom so much. Not only was this my first job out of college, but it was also my first time away from home. It was a huge growing experience for me and Mom would know so much about it. Except for the Alzheimer's.

Our schizophrenic weather is spring-like now. It was so nice not to have to wear a heavy coat. The sun was so warm today, and tomorrow it's supposed to be even warmer. I'm ready.

Mom seemed to have a good day today. She did a little bit of sundowning during Dancing With The Stars but I was soon able to redirect her attention. I miss my Mom so much, yet I am so grateful that I have her with me. Every day we are together is a blessing.

I'm really glad you seem to be doing so well with mom. Each day truly is a blessing.

As for the comment from Mr. Lang, stories should be compensated. My recommendation is not to share unless compensation is discussed and a contract is signed. Just my two cents...

Out of curiosity I looked at his website. It seems like others are writing his book for him. I'm with Betsy on this one.

Robyn, I know exactly how you feel. Sometimes I look in Mom's eyes and just want a flicker of recognition. I've said it before, I want my Mom back!
