She and my mother shared a room in an assisted living facility. It's been really hard trying to grieve and try to help my mother through this, she has dementia, which is another story. I just miss her so much. I do have all her cookbooks and hand-written recipes that she passed to me which is a comfort to read through them. I'm just really hurting right now.

Of course your hurting..I lost my mom several years ago and even tho she had the beginnings of dementia, I'd give the world to have her with me for just an hour. Look how long you got to be with your grandma and all you learned from her..Hold it close, the pain will lessen and then you can sit and go through her cookbooks and notes and enjoy what she left for you..Love your mom as always but give yourself a break from it now and then. It can just eat you up if you don't. Take care of you and you can take care of her..Good thoughts coming for all of you.

Me, too. I just took the stuff in bags and put it in the back of the van. Late that night, I hid it in the basement (like I do with Christmas presents). It's true that kids are very, very bright and it may take a while of having some of their favorite stuff gone to make them believers!

Susieq.......can i give you some wear worn advice?......your children are going to grow up before you know it and I'm including your daughter who stuffs toys up her nose.....this kid is a DC bonafide celebrity...........she's famous and doesn't know it............and she's a poster child......they will grow up before you know it and you will be so sad when your house is quiet again or if they get pregnant as in a woopsie and they still grow up.......you will always be saying goodbye no matter what.......enjoy them, and stumble over their toys, clothes, pets, father.......he does configure into some of this confusion though he's probably clueless.......your house will one day be quiet and you will be wondering at what happened......enjoy them now and take lots of picutres....god only gives them to you for a short while.........enjoy the noise and confusion.......and rant at the invonvenices......you're Mom for goodness sake...........that's your job..........

It is an age thing. Sometimes he just goes and does not realize it. I dropped some of his food in his water and he drank all the water to get the food. So I knew this was coming. (My fault, but it still pees me off! ) Boots is around 15 or so years old and he is doing good for his age. The little dude in my avatar is Binks, my 5 year old Chihuahua. So what is this "fur babies" group you speak of??? How do I join?

Go to the quick links tab at the top of this page and click to lower the menu. Click on Social groups and then on the "furbabies" group. You can see who has joined, what we have talked about and our pet pictures. There will be a button to click if you would like to join. We would love to have you and anyone else with furry friends!

Why don't these dummy kids {not kids really, 21+} understand about drinking and driving!! I don't know for sure that is what happened, but, pretty sure. We have bits and pieces right now. Younger ds has 2 friends that were in a one vehicle wreck Satuday. The driver died
He was only 22 years old!! Omg, I can't even imagine what his parents are going through. The other was released from hospital, last night or this morning, not sure on his injuries yet.
I gripe about my kids and their stupidity, but, they are alive and I need to remember that!!!
