Just a quick post as we are leaving tomorrow for Florida for our family vacation. We have a lovely direct flight which makes us very happy. Just don't like hanging around airports for long layovers. A friend of mine told me yesterday that she has a nine hour layover in NY on her way to Africa on Sunday! Yikes! Nine hours! Just give me a rope and let me end it all! I suggested that they go into the city and walk around but they all have carry on baggage and there aren't any lockers in the airport any more due to the possibility of a ter*rorist putting bombs in one.
Funsize and I have to move the ponies up to the stable this afternoon. Waaaaaaa! I don't like this one bit, but go through it every year. I miss looking out there and seeing them grazing in the pasture and coming over to the fence for a carrot or apple when I go out. T has a hard time with it every year too. She doesn't understand why the town won't let us keep them here all year long. I don't either but we are contracted with the city for just a certain amount of days per year as we are part of a development even though we are on the very back and have 400 acres of land. Go figure!
Mom continues to improve even though she doesn't think she is. She gets discouraged and wants to come home but has a way to go before she can walk independently. Her roommate that we all like so well is being moved to a permanent facility so we feel badly about that. They get along so well and have fun chatting and complaining about the food, which is really rather good actually. But, it's not from home and nothing tastes as good as home.
My sisters are coming to town to take care of things while I am gone. Everyone has pitched in over these last few weeks and it has really helped. It is very emotionally draining to have a loved one where they don't want to be and wanting to come home but can't. We are having a meeting to day with the staff to go over things and discuss ways that could help Mom be more content.
Well I've got tons to do so better get at it. See you all next week!
