I'm still around....

I'm still in Florida at Mom's house, cleaning, helping etc. But in order to get on the internet here, with my computer (cause her's is 8 years old and cranky) I have to turn off her computer...unplug the ethernet cable, then the modem power, then unscrew the co-ax cable, then redo everything to hook up to my computer and get internet access. And usually once I have done that someone comes in and says "I need to check my email for an important message" - arghhhh!!!!

I am going home on Saturday and am looking forward to being in my own house again...

Other than being frustrated, glad to know you're okay! I can feel your pain now that I'm completely obsessed with this damn machine :P

Something's waiting for you at home ;)

Yes it will be nice for you to get back to your own home and your own internet. But it is good to leave things behind well managed.
I have spend the day tearing wallpaper off in my mothers new home. I organized and bought everything today and I am happy all went so smooth. My mother will be moving the 16th.
How is your Mom?
And how are you?
It is hard for both of you......
Today I was in my parents home and I was caught by grief again. Seeing my Dad´s picture there.
They had only enjoyed their new appartment for 5 months....
Busy times ahead for us but glad my Mom has found a place to live again......
I wish you strenght! And your Mom as well.
Big hug from Marianne

What a difficult time! It's good that you were able to spend time with your mother, and help get some of many things taken care of. Have a safe trip home and enjoy s good nights sleep in your own bed!

That would be very frustrating. I hope you and your mom are doing well, all considered. Safe travel when you return tomorrow. Blessings and prayers to you.

I just read about your loss Mim. I am so sorry to hear this. It seems like just no time ago you were celebrating your Dad's birthday. I am glad you had happier times with him toward the end of his life.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. ((hugs))
