Dear Emily, The fund raiser went great. They raised about $600 dollars. That will be used for parties for everyone and for those who can't afford outings we can take them along. Some of the ladies have no one to care for them but the staff. So when they go out to eat these poor old souls can go along now. We just tell them its "free". Mom of course bought "stuff" that she didn't need. She had a good time though. She loves to shop.
It will soon be time to decorate for Christmas. I'm going to have to down size what I take to Moms. I've always stored her Christmas stuff. For the last 20 years. Believe me this woman has alot of stuff.
Every year I take it to her, decorate, Sister 3 helps, then 4 weeks later I go back and repack it all and take it back to the basement. I'm frankly getting too old for this entire process. My husband carries it all up the stairs but now thats getting to his back. She may have demenita, but she remembers EVERYTHING she owns. And she wants it there. Not this year, I'm sorry. No can do.
Thats my story and I'm sticking to it...................Yeah right.!!! Until she gets sad because its not all there. We'll see. OK, I'm done complaining for today. I complain every year. Then I do it. Now I feel better.
Love to all
