Thank-you, Sera Smiles: Every once in a while a very funny situation occurs, that keeps me chuckling. My Dad is doing real well in his nursing home. I had a call last night from a male nurse, embarassingly asking me to pick Dad up a jock strap, or two. It was a bit embarassing. Apparently since his tumour is sitting smack Dab on his happy place in his brain, and he's too happy, happy. Do they make anti Viagra? Seems that's what he needs. The nurse rushed to inform me, he's not bothering anyone, as he is always the gentleman. It could be worse. I bet not too many caregivers of aging Dad's have this kind of phone call. Anyway, me. Well, my rollar coaster is at a dead stop at the top of the down curve. I am looking at houses for rent with acerage, also still looking at trailers. So, ultimately, the answer is no, I haven't got the puzzle solved, yet. I guess I need to remain in the area to care for Dad and Stepmom as I am POA. Also, we've been approached about
developing our land on the ocean. The developer has several "sucessful"projects
in same locale. So we wait for a prospectus. I am the "straw man"ie. quiet facillator"b/c my sister won't agree to any package I put together. So I put the package together and hand it off to my brother, as communicator with sis. Even he incurrs her wrath. She hates me. I haven't figured it out and I have stopped trying. It's good she lives 4000 miles away. She won't answer phone calls emails etc. except to say she has no sister. Her choice.
Now me. Yesterday, we, son and self viewed a little house, close to his Commercial Truck Driving school, and half way between The two nursing homes. It wasn't bad, cute little house Dry, VIP, new furnace, new water pump, new floors, everything new and nice. But small. Also, I guess I am out of tune with rents cause this one seemed high. Barely manageable, really. So, we'll see. My boys want me tucked up in a warm little house somewhere so they don't have to worry about me. Fair, I guess. I am hoping to look at another tomorrow. Hopefully the rent will be more reasonable. The trailer idea would work fine for summer. But winter, with Fibro, arthritis etc. No. I have to be real here. I am getting older. But again, Sara, Thank-you.
