I am my 95 year old dad's sole caregiver, 24/7. He's got dementia and cancer. I see all these commercials on television about Christmas sales, Christmas shows, concerts, etc., and it just sounds so foreign to me right now. It's just my dad, and me. My son lives out on the west coast. My siblings either have their own families, or the single ones aren't interested in celebrating here with dad. Mostly, I'm just so worn out. Seems like the only way I know what day it is - is when to take the garbage cans to the curb! I've always been so happy to celebrate Christmas. Now, I just wish it would hurry up and go by without having to celebrate it.
