I have been very lucky since day one. When my kids were growing up they wanted me home and were willing to make the sacrifices so that I would be home. I worked during the day and was home before they got home from school. When they went to college and out on their own I moved up to management. When my grandaughter was born I quit work to become the babysitter so that my daughter could continue working in management. So, when Wayne became disabled and Dad had his strokes I was able to continue being home. My husband works around 60 hours a week though. He has weekends off and loves spending that time with Wayne or at church.
I truly am lucky. We don't have a lot in the material sense but we have riches beyond belief with family and friends.

Very carefully. I have a very demanding, full time job. I am a paralegal and I work for the Director & Assistant General Counsel for a large electronic Corp. Thank goodness I have een here ten years with a good work record up until approx. one year ago when my father's condition became worse. I am late alot due to hectic nights, and basically, pure exhaustion. The exhaustion is mental (from worry) and physical from doing everything. I raised my daughter alone (who is 20 now) after divording when she was 2. My daughter gave birth to a girl 3/15/04, and is also living with me. But that is pure joy. I deal with it the best I can. My father is aware that I cannot be there M-F during the day. He would prefer to be at home, he is comfortable there. Some days I scream or cry. But in the end, it is my father I feel so badly for. One day at a time!
