On My Own, Again

Mom leaves tonight, after ten days or so of invaluable help with Raphaela.  Despite our multiple arguments, we managed to leave on very good (and very emotional) terms, before she left for the airport after Shabbat.

I am on my own again with Raphaela, tentatively returning to work as well next week, and quite frankly, I am worried that my body will not be able to physically keep up with the demands of my life.

Take it easy and only do what is absolutely essential. Housework can wait and you can go to bed at the same time as Rafaella. Kol Hakavod for ending your Mom's stay on good terms. Enjoy your space back and get 100% well soon. Shavua Tov.

Ask for help. Don't be shy - ask everyone and some will have time to help you. Think of it as giving people an opportunity to do a mitzvah. Perhaps your beit knesset can help organize something. People like to help - you just need to ask.
Good luck !
