Checking In

My life has been very busy and stressful these past few weeks as I publicize My Mom Has Alzheimer's: Inspiration and Help for Caregivers. I honestly did not understand, when I'd completed writing the book and had found a publisher, that my job was not done! Two book signings, a newspaper interview, and two radio interviews later, I am somewhat wiser and very tired. I much prefer the writing to the publicizing.

This afternoon Lloyd Hildebrand, CEO of Bridge Logos Foundation (the company that published my book) interviewed me at Blogtalk Radio. You can hear the interview by clicking the link in the side bar to the right.

Lest any of this goes to my head, my mother set me straight the other night. She called me on my cell phone (the instructions for making this call are taped to her phone) and said, "We need to get someone in here from housekeeping to clean up this mess the cat made on the floor."

Since I'm the nearest thing to housekeeping staff that Mother has, a few minutes later I was on my hands and knees scrubbing aforementioned mess.

The Lord knows how to keep us humble!


  1. So very, very true. I am smiling (hopefully with you and not at you)!

  2. Congrats on your book. And a book signing is great. I have the cleaning duty around here too. If not cleaing mom it is cat mess or dog mess. Thank goodness my son is out of the mess making stage.

  3. Amen.... We do get brought to our knees sometime, don't we?
