People say the first time you experience a holiday without your Dad here to share it with is the hardest. I think this is going to be a hard Mothers Day for my mom. My Dad always made it special for her. I decided for my Mothers Day I'd like to go on a camping trip. I love to camp, its total peace for me. My husband said it would be OK to invite my Mom if she'd like to come, so I did. I think we're just going to try to keep busy. My husband and I have started talking about asking my Mom to move in with us. Its a big decision. But my parents didn't plan for retirement, so my Mom still works. She can't pay her bills if she doesn't work. The only way for her to retire is to sell the house and move in with family. Shes 69 years old and won't be able to do this forever. She's not sure if she wants to move in with her kids, she hates to be a burden. My thinking is, its better to do it now when she can make an informed decision about it instead of waiting until shes to old and set in her ways. My Mom is pretty easy going and very easy to get along with ususally. She does favor my sister a little, like my dad used to favor me, but my sister doesn't have the room. I'd really like feedback from everyone about things I probably haven't thought about yet. We're trying to make a very informed decision. thanks and hugs, Marge...........My Dad used to buy roses and take her out to breakfast for my Mom on Mothers day every year.

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
