I used to be very full of rage, especially towards my mother and father in law, just because of the way they are. And they can't even help most of it! They are nearly uneducated and misunderstand a lot of things and they're kind of slow too. Since they are old and sick, it doesn't exactly make things easier for them...or me. I don't want to feel the rage I used to feel towards them. I thought I was beyond that. But I can feel it coming back when I get around them. I've told my husband before that I should get away from them, and not have to spend so much time around them because I felt like it was driving me crazy! We got our own home now (we used to live with them) and I thought everything was better. But I can feel the rage coming back. I don't understand. It's even making me short tempered with my husband and daughter. But we have to live close to them because my husband takes care of them. I just want to move away from here sometimes, where we can be own our own. But I know with the way things are now, that we're stuck here........waiting for them to die. And I feel so bad about saying that or even thinking it. But it's true! My husband's at the end of his rope right now, having to be the one everyone around him looks to, to make things okay. I can't pester him about this again, but I don't have anyone else who understands, to talk to. And I'm not just thinking that. It's true.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
