Quick update

Thanks so much for all your kind comments, hugs, prayers, words of wisdom. They mean a lot.

We are hanging in there as best we can. Things in Connecticut are progressing slowly but steadily toward an outcome. What that outcome will be is yet unknown. But we will get there. Advice for you all: keep your things in order. Make sure you have your health directives and POAs up to date and that someone else knows how to find them. Don’t rely on just one person for everything. Getting old can really suck, but it doesn’t have to be a 💩storm.

That being said, the siblings are all still getting along and supporting each other. Silver lining!

I am finishing a sweater today, I do believe. I promise to share pictures when I do. And my little gnome is keeping me occupied. I might cast on some stars or a tree today, too. I need some little cast ons.

  1. I am so glad things are settling down for you. I hope the outcome from this turmoil is bright and healthy. I will be posting some of Pat’s felting soon She is doing some amazing things. Don’t talk to me about getting old, I will be 81 in less than a month. Hang in there.

    1. I can’t wait to see Pat’s work!

      As for getting old, you seem young to me! Just make sure someone knows how to take care of you and Pat if you aren’t able to do it.

  2. Big hugs to you – I’m glad things are moving forward and that you are in this together. You WILL get through this. I hope the cast ons help you!!

  3. Hugs being sent your way. I missed your last post got caught up. I understand all that goes on with aged relatives and it is quite overwhelming. Hang in there, you have other family around you which can be a mixed blessing. I’ll be keep you and yours in my prayers. Remember to breath. Nice deep breaths. It really helps relieve the pressure.

    1. Oh, friend, I know you do understand! I feel very helpless, all we can do is call. No visiting, can’t even go to CT at this point. Truly sucks.

      1. Yes it is very hard when there is nothing you can do and the universe seems to be conspiring against you too. Some how we have to make peace with ourselves and accept that we are doing all we can though we feel it is not enough. It is easy to beat up ourselves. Prayers and hugs to you and your family.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
