Our respite care worker quit

On Tuesday, I was patiently waiting for the respite care worker to arrive. She comes three times a week to watch Andy for four hours.  Once she was 30 minutes late, I texted her asking, "Are you coming today?" Then she replied, "Sorry, they didn't tell you? I quit on Friday." Nooooooo!  She says it wasn't about our family, she loved caring for Andy, it was about too many demands from the agency and not enough money. 

I am very thankful for the three months that we had her services. We really enjoyed all the time we got to spend with our daughter. I really enjoyed all the times I got to go to dinner with her, just the two of us, or sometimes my husband would join us too. I loved the sewing classes I got to attend with her, and the rollerskating nights, and the movie nights. It was good while it lasted. But just as I had feared, all good things must come to an end. Until we get a new worker...sigh.
