Husband's Caregiver

When my husband was first diagnosed, I knew I would need some time for myself. Our two dogs like to go with me in another room to nap so I said this is our time (1-3PM approximately in the afternoon).

I read or do correspondence and the dogs sleep. It’s funny but because it’s the dogs need, my husband is fine with it. Don’t know how long it will last however.
