Dar: a flood again! I know I wouldn't be able to cope with everything you accomplish......do you hear that? It's me giving you applause! You earn every penny you make. Have a question re: my 91 year old aunt who has been moved to an assisted living place. My cousins made the decision(she is a widow with no children) because she was showing many signs of alzheimers like another aunt who died from it. She was alone.....and wanting to die. Now she's as mad as a wet hen. Complaining of the food, of her table mates and everyone else there, complaining she doesn't have the right clothes, etc. etc. Said my cousin NOW has all her $ which is basically enough to pay the rent for one year. What do you suggest???????? Granni: what a way to find out about your son's possible job overseas? I don't go to FB and don't want to. And like Mikie said, it all depends on the safety of the country. Mikie: About that BIG, heavy suitcase........when she gets home you should ask her what she packed that she DIDN'T wear. I learned a long time ago that I only wore half of what I packed. When we went to Portland I went down to a much smaller suitcase, but still didn't wear some of the things packed. Years ago my dream was to be able to toss something into a very small travel bag and just GO. Of course now half of what I pack is for my body comfort like two heating pads, rice filled things, etc. I've got a guy coming tomorrow to trim a ton of bushes. I wasn't sure if we would be home on saturday so I had him put the very heavy ladder outside.....and of course......it rained a little last night on it. I've now got it covered with plastic....hoping it will be dry tomorrow so he can do the work. And the new pool service guy was out yesterday and did a good job. Needless to say the H.S. kids didn't work out, one was VERY slow and the other one didn't show up on saturday. Does anyone have dreams that they pay attention to? Had a dream this morning.....upsetting to say the least.....I had gotten off a trail that I knew well, to get on a bicycle, ended up at some fancy country club, and then couldn't find my way back to the correct trail.....I was lost. Well, obviously it has to do with what's going on in my life right now.....sometimes I can go back into a dream to finish it but no luck this morning. When I lay down next time I'll see if I can put my mind into thinking of this dream. The brain is amazing.
