There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

Can't Sleep

It is 2:41 a.m. I can't sleep. I turned mom at 12:30 and just fell back to sleep when my son came home from work around 1 and told me our dog was out. He put the dog up which was good but I looked outside and there was trash everywhere. It is not the first time this has happened. Our dog loves to climb the fench and get into the neighbors trash than drag it to our yard. No way to deny it was our dog since there is a trail from there trash cans to our front door. So here I go again . Gloves and trash bag to pick up trash.
D.O.G. for Dog of Greatness is chained up now. I hate chains but no more trash cleaning for me . In my eyes he is not such a great dog right now. Tomorrow I might not be so mad but tonight he is in the dog house.


  1. Once I lose sleep I never seem to be able to catch it up latter. There is always something going on to stop me from getting a nap. Our dogs don't try to get out they dig craters in the middle of their fenced in area. I can never find the dirt they threw out to fill the holes(?). I hope you get a chance to get some rest.

    God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

  2. Hi Karen - I can relate to the dog and the trash. Our dog doesn't go out off leash, but he has done that same thing in our kitchen more times than I can recall.

    I gave you an Honest Scrap award today, which I was given today. You can pick up a copy to post on your blog. I really appreciate your writing about your experiences with caring for your mom. Take care, and congratulations!

  3. Hello from Louisiana!
    please make sure if you chain him up he cant reach the fence. we did that to our dog when the dog next door was in heat. he jumped the fence anyway and hung himself. it was horrible and we felt so guilty. still hurts. You take such great care of your mama...i just found out a few weeks ago my good friend from high school has altzheimers too. diagnosed at age 45. ( she's 50 now) i still cant believe it. hang in there.


Thanks for visiting my blog and I love reading your comments. Please come back soon. Karen
