In Between

My sister just had open heart surgery. For a week I drove in between OSU and my Dad's house. That was a 50 minute ride each way...every day.  Then once she was released I took her home back to Cleveland to recover. I had to change hats daily running in between being a wife and being a caretaker, trying desperately to balance the needs of my husband and my sister.  I'm not sure I did well in either department.



I've been traveling in between Cleveland and Columbus for over a month now.   From my house near Cleveland to the OSU hospital is 1 hour and 55 minutes.  From my house to my Dad's house is a solid 3 hours. He lives about 50 miles south of Columbus.

Family is wanting Dad and sister to move up near Cleveland so we can all help take care of each other. So I've been trying to clean, pack and stage their house.  I am trying to be very careful as I go in between being a daughter and an organizer and between being a caretaker and a home stager all the while trying not to be disrespectful, but trying to get the job done.

    1. Yes, I agree. I would do it again in a heartbeat if needed, but will be glad to settle back into a quieter routine.

    2. I'm sure. This is not a road anyone would choose, but God will carry you through. Thanks for stopping by and commenting at my spot too! :) You went to Duncanville HS? We lived in Fort Worth for 9 years before moving overseas. :)

    3. I did! I lived in the Dallas area for 13 years. That's where I met my husband and had my babies. Miss the churches there. The midwest is a bit...shall we say, mellow, when it comes to worshipping. Blessings on you!

  2. Dear Mindy, good luck with all the hats you have to wear, and with sorting it all out. Praying it all goes smoothly and isn't too stressful. Xx
