Not sure what to do now.....told my dad, whose 83, we were thinking of moving to Austin and he threw me a curveball by saying he didn't think he would be going with us. His reasons.....it is a long drive between Texas and Indiana where his GF lives and the senior center that he does a lot with when he is there. Plus not sure he wants to go through the hassle of changing doctors etc., etc., etc. He did say he will think about it and let us know. Our lease is up Oct 3rd so have been planning on moving somewhere into a larger place by the end of September as my kids/young adults (dd is 24 and ds is 21) can't keep sharing a room...they need their own spaces.
So now not sure what to do.....OY!!!
This has been keeping me up nights and emotional overeating has been rampant....these last few weeks.
My dad has lived with us since 2001. He moved in with us when we still lived in Indiana and he was living in New York. We have since moved to Georgia and then to Tennessee and he has come with us both times. He drives back to Indiana every now and again to spend time with his GF, who is 80, and to see his friends at the senior center where they have bingo, dances, trips and dinners. He and his GF can only handle living together for a few months before they both get on each other's nerves and then he comes home to us.....
