Lena, glad to hear you got power of attorney for your dad. It's got to be tough. Sending you more hugs. The plus side is everyone you know is going to have warm socks to wear.
Eva, sorry your dentures aren't fitting properly. I thought they took molds to get the exact contours of your mouth. Pat sounds like he's really sick. And when you are that bad, you don't have to clean up. Just show up in your jammies and a robe. I'm sure he does catch a lot of stuff working at the hospital.
DH is on vacation this week and next. We were going to go on some photo gathering drives, maybe head down to Boise and visit the botanical gardens and the raptor sanctuary for more pictures. But..., it's done nothing but rain. And there is nothing but rain in the forecast. We are hoping that it'll dry out next week. However, it's not looking real good for that.
I put aside the wings for dolls and am making up some blank journals. I always make mom a new one for mother's day. And that's coming up soon. Mostly, I need a new journal.
Mom has realized she can't handle having two residences anymore and is talking about selling the house up here in Idaho. However, I've been informed that I need to make more trips to California to see her. *sigh* I call the woman Every Single Day! She keeps me on the phone for most of an hour every time, sometimes longer. Now, I'm supposed to spend every vacation coming to visit her? It's not that I won't come see her ever again. It's just I don't think it's necessary to use all of DH's vacation time to visit her. After all, now that the kids have moved to Vegas, I'm going to want to spend time to visit them once in a while. And, DH deserves to do fun stuff on his vacations. We can't do it all, every time. So, much as she wants it, it's not going to happen. I'm glad she's talking about selling the house. It's actually been too much for her to handle since she bought it. But with her movement restricted due to the back problem, it's even worse now. At least she used to be able to weed the environs around the house. But now she has to have a housekeeper to do the in depth cleaning and a yard service. There is no way she'll get a housekeeper or yard service out here in the sticks. Not part time when she's out here. Anyway, I'm sure that I'll get roped into doing stuff once she actually moves to sell the place. It's going to be a pain.
I wish I had progress to report on actual fiber art stuff, but I don't.
