NOT as bad as I thought....
Friday, October 10, 2014
Thanks so much for everyone's kind words and support yesterday. All the kind words and comments really helped me to put the situation in perspective.
OF COURSE my mom wants me to go on this trip. She and my father also traveled extensively in their retirement. I sent Mom our detailed itinerary and she told me she's read it through several times and wants to get out "the big atlas" so she can see daily where we are.
The best news is that my brother will be staying with my mom. He actually just sold his house is moving into a condo. But he's going to have it completely gutted and remodeled; he's even taking out a few walls! This will take many weeks so instead of staying with friends he'll just move in with my mom. My sister will take over on the weekends. I'll plan to go up once we get home from the trip.
So things are looking better on the home front, and guess what? I'm tracking my food today!
