This weekend I'm in Charlottesville watching after my mom while my sister and my brother-in-law go out of town for the weekend. The boyfriend has another wedding party to do this weekend in Hampton, so he and the dog remained at home. He of course will go to the wedding and reception and then on Sunday have brunch with our group of friends, a/k/a the "usual suspects. For me, it will be a weekend of reading. blogging and hanging out with my mom at my sister's house (she moved into an in-law apartment in the house back during the summer.)
It is truly hard to see one's parents failing physically and in terms of mental acuity. I know it happens to all of us, but it is nonetheless difficult.
