Turning Back Time?

in writing this blog i hope to help myself….it was my mantra at the time. i’m not sure if i’m helping myself or if i’m diving deeper into the reality of depression and/or life. i started my journey at the suggestion of a friend — she thought it would help me as I find myself a caregiver for my parents. the loneliness of the job is heartbreaking.

it was an experiment in the beginning and then turned into daily life. i’m not sure what daily life is…however, i’m living it. as a former television producer and political junkie who worked in a white house — watching “wheel of fortune” and “jeopardy” every-night with the folks has turned into a mind altering experience. i never knew or remembered what a condescending jerk Alex turned out to be. I guess he forgets he has the answers in front of him…..have any of you watched the news lately? dad likes the routine of the nightly news — after 30 minutes with brian williams i’m looking for the brooklyn bridge….

my days of the “housewife” dynasty are over for the moment….as is msnbc 24/7. wonder what is happening on “mob wives”….does it really matter?

we need our own reality show — andy cohen are you listening? “the real baby-boomers” of the hamptons….i hope someday to return to botox, highlights and whole foods….for now, i’m on a journey of no return. yes, i’ll be happy in the future i had this time with my folks, i’m happy nowold times….however, noone prepares us for the journey of the unknown…it is scary. i wish i could turn back time….
