Yesterday, I spent the afternoon with Mom. She was a little depressed when I got there and she kept apologizing for being a pain and taking my time. I just kept assuring her that I enjoyed spending time alone with her. I promised her that I will come over next Tuesday to take her to get her hair cut. I will see if there is any other place she needs to go or if I can do anything for her.
It's hard to think that parents age and sometimes need help. But it's time to be honest and know that both my mom and my first mother-in-law need help now. As I am setting up my new schedule, I will schedule in time for both of them.
I went to an estate sale yesterday. The older lady was moving in with her daughter, so she was getting rid of a lot of things that she had collected through the years. It got me really thinking, especially since I had just left my mother's house. I need to weed out what I have. I would love to help Mom and mother-in-law do the same. I know this will have to be done tactfully, but I will come up with something to say to be able to do it.
