I am Tired .......

*sigh* I am tired!
My parents are not well. I have been taking turns with my other siblings taking care of them since the past two months. I travel daily to my sister's, cos that is where they are now. I leave my house at 7.00am and come back at about 4.00pm or 5.00pm.

I am so tired!
I don't get to do much tatting now. I used to be able to put in a few hours of tatting during the day, but not anymore. It has turned for the worse for my mom and any spare time I had was spent taking a nap or just resting. And when I come back home, I am already flat out after dinner, in front of the telly. Instead of me watching the telly, it is 'watching' me, LOL.

I am very tired!
I bring my laptop with me everyday, hoping that I can work on documenting my patterns, but I don't even have time to check my mails. If you have written to me and not received any replies, I apologise. I will try to do it when I eventually get to read them. If it is of something important or urgent, please re-send to me so that it is back on top of the file again and there is a better chance of me reading it.

I am tired, *sigh*


  1. Take care of yourself too Jon. Hope all works out well for your parents.

  2. Oh Jon, so sorry to hear about your Mom. Hope she'll get better...Just be strong for her ^_^
    Hope for the best for you and family
    God Bless

  3. Is that was why you had to rush to Bangi? I wish you the best and make sure you take care of yourself. There is no use if you are sick.

  4. Bless your heart. I wish I was there to help you. I know first hand how difficult this is, emotionally and physically. I'm not sure which is more debilitating. I hope your mom's condition will improve. We miss you and appreciate you giving us an update. Take care of Jon.

  5. Jon, You are to be commended for dedicating tour time to looking after your parents. I know what a stress that can be. Make sure to take some time for yourself and my thoughts are with you.

  6. Hi Jon, I understand your situation! My parents were ill past year and looking after them caused a lot of tiredness, not only phisycall, but overall psycological 'cause I was very worried for them. My best wishes that your loved parents will restore their health soon! Chiara =)

  7. Thank you for such kind words. Yesterday was particularly tiring, hence the post. I barely had an hour of rest all day yesterday. I was in need of a BIG group hugs, and I know I can get it from my buddies here.

    Thankfully, today was better. My mother was calmer and she managed a few hours of rest and sleep. But, the road ahead is still very long and hard. Your kind thoughts will help me through. Thank you so much.

  8. Jon, I hope you find the strength to keep on going. My sisters and I had a similar situation with our parents in December and January -- except they came to stay with us. It is a lot more work than taking care of yourself because of the worry. I hope things go well for your parents and your family. (((((Jon and family)))))

  9. I know how you feel. Three years ago my last remaining parent(mom) started not to respond to dialysis and began many trips to the hospital because of complications. It was very hard and there were long hours away from work and my own family. When the end came I was able to know I did all I could. At times I still miss her, but I know she appricated all I did for her. Yes you are tired, but your parents appricate all you do for them. And I hope they can be around longer because of your good works! We will pray for you and your family and I hope you can feel the group hug from all of us who love you!

  10. Hello Jon. I know how its like to take care of our parents when they are old n sick. Be patient & be strong. Segala yg berlaku ada hikmah di sebalik nye. Neway, take gud care of yourself.

  11. Awwww...Jon, that is so sweet of you to help take care of your parents. I hope things will ease up for you soon and do take care of yourself!

    The part about you being so tired that the telly is watching you made me chuckle! That's pretty tired, alright!

  12. I'm so sorry to hear you are having so many hard time Jon, you and your family.
    I'll keep you in my prayers n thoughts.
    Here is a cyber hug for you ((((Jon))))


  13. You are a wonderful daughter and all around nice person. I hope that your parents start doing better. Remember, you can't help them if you get so tired you get sick, so try to rest. My prayers are with you and your parents. And as Connie did, here's a cyber hug for you (((Jon)))

  14. Thank you for the group hugs and encouraging words. It certainly lightens the load. I am lucky to know so many wonderful folks, even though I have not met most of you.

  15. Hello Jon,
    I know how you feel as I looked after my mum fo a long time......please try to rest a little as you will get sick yourself if you thoughts and prayers ae with you all

  16. My thoughts are with you, Jon at this time. I am so sorry for your loss. Fox

  17. I am so sorry to hear about your mother. You will have many loving memories of her to ease you through your pain.
