Musings About Life and Stuff

Helping Parents as They Get Older

This has nothing to do with food, but that’s why it’s on its own page.  Part of life this summer was that I took part in my parent’s estate auction, moving, and settling into a new apartment.  That all sounds simple enough, but try it after they’ve lived in the same house for 37 years, and they’re downsizing to an apartment roughly 1/8 the size of their previous living and storage areas.  Talk about a reality check.  Talk about an emotional roller coaster!

I don’t mean to sound as if I’m complaining.  It was achieved, and we all lived to tell about it.  I’m just sayin’ — for those of you who haven’t done it yet, muster all your patience, good cheer, and stamina.  Then schedule a week or so to recover.  : )
