Reasons to be happy, today

I last wrote on Monday, and that day turned out fabulous. Really. My brother and I visited an assisted living home that we thought would be perfect for my parents. We met with a financial adviser who gave us encouraging news. I got back to my own house in the afternoon and strung my hammock in it's spot among the trees and hung out on an 80 degree day with my eyes closed and great music from Pandora radio. It was heavenly. That day was a gift after all the bad ones.

My brother took my parents to the 'home' on Tuesday. My mother loved it! She wants to know when she can move in. My father liked it a lot, but he's not quite on board yet. He will be, and I'm sure he'll be very happy once he's settled in. I've seen him in hospitals and long stays in rehab centers. He's always settled in.

Rob came over last night and we went to Pei Wei, our favorite restaurant, then to Dairy Queen for Blizzards, then watched American Idol. This morning we'll be going in separate directions, but we'll meet up later. Hopefully on the hammock. Today is supposed to be another nice day. Spring weather really makes me happy. Coffee on my day off makes me really happy too.

Happy Thursday!

I'm so happy you've found a place that both your parents like. Post pictures when you can!! Great weather! That warmth has apparently skipped my state entirely. Earlier in the week, it was doing good to hit 35 but today its already 46. (big whoop de do) I guess I shouldn't complain....its better than a freakin' blizzard. Enjoy your day and that wonderful hammock.

That's fantastic! It's wonderful to know that Aunt Laura and Uncle Lindy will be safe and, hopefully, happy. I'm sure they will. Good places are hard to find. Kudos to you and your brother!

Take care Cousin!

Blessings!

It sounds like a wonderful day of rejuvenation. It must be hard for the 'rents to not have a permanent place to call home for now. There has been lots of upheaval lately. Hope they settle in and feel like they have finally come 'home'.

Blessings dear.
