Miss you all
I love the graphic Donna made above, so sweet.
I finally made it home for a few hours to catch up on some things. Yes, my MIL is still hanging in there. Unfortunately she finally started having pain so now is on scheduled morphine. It is keeping her comfortable, but she is rarely awake. I do not know how she keeps hanging in there as she isn't eating or drinking often and her kidneys are barely working. I am back to work so it is hard on my husband. It really takes 2 to move her. I have 2 more nights to work and then a class on Friday. Then off again to be more help.
BIL is here, but isn't much help. He set up the basement to look like a living space and is down there or at the bar. We are keeping a truce except for when he smokes in the house. Saving our battle for later. My back is really bad today and my finger is still swollen and very painful. We are all falling apart, LOL.
Lots of snow and ice here as there is around the country. So much for the farmers almanac saying we are having a mild winter. It is really pretty though and since I finally got the van fixed I don't mind driving in it.
My DIL was in an accident and got hit by a garbage truck. It totaled their car and she has a concussion and aches all over. If the children had been in the back seat it would have been tragic. So it could have been worse.
Christmas will soon be here and I haven't got a thing done. Not a decoration, not a single present, nada nothing. I had better at least send my son some money to get my grandkids something. Everyone else realizes I just haven't got it to spare, but I do want to get them something.
I haven't got my alerts on but hope to get around to some journals and slowly get caught up on everyone. Merry Christmas all and Happy New Year. Sorry my entries have been so dreary lately, I know you all understand.
