I haven't been on the morning thread for a while but since I can't sleep I thought I would say hello. Hope you have all been well. Spring has sprung in my part of the woods. It was a little chilly for a day or so but should warm up a bit. We leave Friday AM to visit easy child in Orlando for 2 nights. I'm not sure if he is excited to see us as much as getting free meals. LOL. Being independent sure has it's down sides. difficult child continues to wait for the wheels of service to turn slowly towards job search and life in general. He has been a big help lately and I appreciate it for the first time in his life. It's wonderful to see that he takes out the trash most of the time with no prompting from me. He has been better. We are changing medications for the first time in many years. He is on 1/2 the Geodon and twice the Strattera. I took mom back to her own house. She feels better and wanted to get on with the business of living and not being so rested. LOL. Her mantra is better to die planting tomatoes than sitting on the couch waiting for it. So we are giving her what she wants. Sigh. Monday, we had to put our poor HoneySue down to prevent her from having pain. She made it 13 months with the bone cancer and lung cancer. Never missed a meal including the morning I took her in to the vet. Walked like a champ but when she sat down she was always licking the tumor. She wasn't herself for a few days. There is a big hole in our home and life. We miss her and can't believe how quiet everything seems. Her brother has never been away from her except for hospitalizations. We are all heartbroken. It's good that Cowboy and I are going on a road trip and won't get back for a couple of weeks. Allows us to get used to our loss. So that's life at the Mrs. Fran house. Juggling lots of different things which is why I haven't been on much. Have a good Thursday.
