I believe this is the last message I have to answer from you. I'm sort of getting caught up but I see that little you've got mail envelope at the bottom of my screen. I'm not looking until I finish what I've got.
I'm glad you were able to cheer your sister up. I can understand how you feel about your brothers and I guess that comes from always doing everything yourself. Don and I have always been the ones taking care of my mom-in-law and when my sis-in-law does do something we worry about it being done right as well. Getting old isn't fun and having to take care of our aging parents isn't either but I wouldn't have things any other way. I adore my mom-in-law and only want her to get the best care possible as I'm sure you want for your dad as well.
Talk to you later.
You are all caugt up. Like you I am going to stick to this site. It is easier.
I envy you movie night. I am always behind. We have alot the same taste in films. I definately want to see "The Other Boleyn Girl" . Margie (my sister who is 4 years younger) wants to go and see some films at the Great Lakes film festival starting this Thursday but usually I get my movies via Netflix. Margie and I are like you and Colleen were, close in age and in doing things together. My other sister Sharon is 10 years younger like you and your Pam. She and I have the same taste in music and have done concerts together and there is a small music venue near me with local acts and we sometimes go there together, But I do not have an equivalent of your friend Barb. Mine have all moved away or lost touch. While in New York Margie and I went to the theater, shopped at all our favorite stores, went to dinner at some of our favorite places and just walked some of our favorite places. It was really really a good vacation.
Sorry your mom in law is not up to par. My dad is doing better but as you said they have a hard time leaving their homes and dealing with all the changes. But you just do the best you can as we all have had to deal with change and there will be more coming. It is why I always nag people to make as many decisions ahead of time as they can. Then they can manage changes as much as is possible. People are all different in what they want. Me, I have lived in a condo since my husband died and will have no problem with independent living and assisted living apartment building type places. But people who have always lived in a house may want a totally different setting etc. So I told myself that since this will be my 60th birthday, I am going to get every form signed and done and all my decisions decided and written down.!!
Sounds like the co-ordinator's job would be right up your alley. If you want to, go for it . It is a great thing to give your time to!! I hope you will not have to do too much of your other job.... the snow shoveling lol speaking of which it is horrendous here this evening. Freezing rain and sleet and winds off the lake are howling out there. My son and grandson are supposed to fly in tonight from vacation and I am sure they will be diverted. I am hoping that they will wait to come in till tomorrow.
By the way, sorry to not have seen Clarice post lately. Reading her posts was what got me started on Golden Girls. I hope to run into some of the posters from the old board on here. If they read this I hope they will say hi. : )
OK Janese take your time replying and save your fingers. Take care.
