But that is not going to happen. Now my mom wants to go see my dad. Don't know if I should drive her up or let my brothers arrange that. Will have to decide pretty soon because he isn't doing too good. So many things to consider. My "... Read more

We didn't get nearly as much snow as we expected and that is a good thing. But there was one thing I forgot about.....don't leave our clothes in the dryer. You need to warm them up in order to fold them. I did manage to get up to my sew... Read more

This whole having dad away from here and only having to take care of mom is going to be a new normal. It doesn't look like dad is ever going to get good enough to come live with mom again mostly because she can't aid in his needs at all anymore... Read more
