Role Reversal

Spent the whole day yesterday with my Mom at the hospitall, I wont get into that whole thing, but she is fine for now.  But slowly but surely our role has reversed . I am the caregiver and in charge.  There comes a point in your life as you age that you need your family more than ever.  My mom lives in a building that is assisted living.  She gets her meals there and has her own apartment on the 8th floor, and a lady comes in and cleans weekly and does the laundry, not her personal laudry but sheets, towels etc.  So many people in that building has no one to help them and my heart breaks for them.  My mom so appreciates all that I do for her, but why would I not she is my mom.

Well today,  I have errands to run, a house to get ready for the weekend,  the newspaper to read and art to make.  The weather could not be nicer for February and it just makes you want to go out and play.
So what exciting things are you doing this weekend?
