While difficult child 1 was at home we of course at one point had the tv on. She saw a thing about the straw poll our state was having and then about the caucus' and primaries that will be coming up. She made a comment about thinking she would vote in the next election and how could they change it. As I looked at husband we both took a deep breath and tried to explain as simply as possible a very non simple situation. Later that day and a few times since she brought it up I thought to myself OMG. Not only will she be making decisions about her own life then but she will be making an attempt to affect others and she doesn't even understand the process. I know it sounds strange but it makes me sit here and think husband and I need to get to the lawyer to get our living wills and regular wills updated. I don't want anything to happen and then have one of the difficult children make the decision for us if we can't make it ourselves. What a frightening thought. Maybe I am just being morbid but I could just think of the horrific places we could end up. (Whether out of uninformed places convincing them they would take care of us or out of some need to "get even" for all the time they spent at RTCs. Maybe I shouldn't take days where I do nothing.
