Maybe I'll get to knit today...

Last Monday my father passed away and I've been very busy with all the responsibilities that go along with that. I live about an hour and a half from my parents home. I made the drive 5 times in 6 days. I think that is a new personal record. The good news is that we've seen the lawyer and my mom should not end up living in a cardboard box. I think that my mom is doing as well as you can under the circumstances. My father has been very sick for the last year and a half. In the last 6 mos the doctors have talked a lot about hospice, but my father was not ready to give up. He went quickly and quietly and that is about all any of us can ask for.

This afternoon I have a Girl Scout Cookie Sale and then I'm hoping to catch up on some laundry and maybe knit something from Pursenalities Plus.

Kara, I am sorry to hear about your father. Mine died after battling Leukemia for 18 months. Hospice was so helpful to my mother the last 6 weeks of his life. They are a great organization. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
