Is it Tuesday again?
Wasn't it Tuesday just yesterday?
(gets up and checks the paper calendar on the wall)
Ok, guess not!
Time once again to visit on the farmhouse porch - the porch of Everyday Ruralty.
When it's time to cut the grass (mow the lawn), who does it?
Ha!! We have no lawn. Problem fixed. When we moved here we decided to cover the front yard with landscaping and mulch. The back yard is a brick patio and mulch. No pesky grass. I should note, however, that we have a stamp size front and back yard since we live in a townhouse community. :-) Our "fix" wouldn't work for most people. We are very happy NOT being large land owners.
If someone gave you $500 dollars, and you could not spend it on yourself, who would you spend it on?
I would spend it on my mom who currently lives in Assisted Living. It would pay for only 2 days of care but I can't think of another person who deserves (and needs) my help more in that regard. Her life was never flush with assets. She saved and led a frugal life, and now we are blowing through that savings with breath taking speed for her Assisted Living. It makes me sad. She lived with me for 5 years prior to being admitted to Assisted Living. You can find our story together on my blog at Through My Caregiver Eyes label. My experience was not a traditional "sandwich generation" story ... my kids were grown and on their own, but my life with mom mirrors many of the struggles that others have faced.
Have you ever taken a blogging break or considered one?
Funny you should ask. I just came off a considerable blogging break (about 2 months). Blogging breaks sort of catch me by surprise. I don't know they are coming. All of a sudden I notice that it has been a week, then two, and before I know it an official break from blogging has occurred. This last break was the longest. I couldn't get in gear to write even one word, although ideas would pop up in my head, and I would say to myself ... yes, I should blog about that ... and then I wouldn't. I am back now but never say never with regards to blogging breaks.
Are you bothered by spring allergies or hay fever? If not spring, any other time of the year?
Yes, year round, in door and out door! And if I could be more compliant in taking my allergy meds, my life would be more peaceful.
What's new with you?
Nothing. I lead a very busy but boring life.
All I can say at this point is ... tomorrow better not be TUESDAY!!!
