Ups and Downs, Happy and Sad

Life has been quite busy of late. Between grandchildren, family demands, and life in general, I've not had time to post much. Some things have been good, some things have been bad.

First the bad.
My father-in-law has Alzheimer's. For quite some time it was a very slow progression. Not so now. He's at a point where we must begin medicating him more strongly, to protect my mother-in-law from his temper and unpredictable behavior. We know that he is miserable himself and we are hoping and praying that the medication will help. I've been talking with a very helpful and kind lady who has a lot of experience with Alzheimer patients and her insight has been invaluable.

Now the good.
My grandbabies are simply awesome!

The joy they give me is never ending! And now we have more good news!! My son and daughter-in-law are expecting another baby in March! We hope Klaire will get a little brother, but we will be happy with whatever God decides to bless us with!!!!

I've been doing some sewing and a tiny bit of painting, but mostly I've been keeping grandbabies, and helping in-laws. This is the time in life when these are the most important. Everything else will be there when I get to it.

This summer in south Arkansas has been mild to say the least. Plenty of rain,  and reasonable temperatures have made it very nice. The only downside to that, is that sometimes it's too cool for LMW to swim. We bought him a 30" 10' pool this summer.

Hopefully, I will have other interesting things to talk about another day. I'm also considering the consolidation of my two blogs to make it easier to post. I'll be making a decision on that soon. I've thought about it before, and never done anything about it. I think it might be best since I seldom post here.

I'll be back....

Family is always first sweetie, just be sure you get some time for self - that is important too.
