Let it Snow!

Hello, it's late and I can't sleep so I decided to do a post.  This is a dollar digi from Deedee's Digi's and I couldn't agree more with Let it snow!  It's been in the high 90's as it has been all over but the humidity is the killer.  So working on these snowmen cards for the "Operation Write Home" group is suppose to sic me into believing its cool.  Well I used SU Real Red and green for my card with a SU plain border punch and some vellum.  I just picked up this snowflakes at Michael's in the clearance bin so they were perfect.  It's a quick and easy card and truthfully I made it last week.

Now onto the low down about my life.  I have done alot of praying and visiting my doctor and I've done tons of research, talked with my brother and decided its time I put Mom in a Assisted Living Center.  She really needs someone to be with her 24/7 to assist her with dressing, hair washing, bathing because she doesn't even know what your talking about when you ask her if she wants her hair washed.  She doesn't have a clue what food she is eating and she just doesn't communicate well.  I have HBP and plenty of problems with my back and hips so if I had to pick her up or move her I just couldn't do it.  We had an agreement that when it got to much she would go to a nursing home but she just doesn't comprehend my health and half the time she calls me 'the girl or hey girl'.  It breaks my heart but she will only be about 15 minutes away and I'll visit her at least 2-3 times a week.  I can pick her up anytime and take her to dinner or to my daughters so I think I can do it.   I just can't go to sleep tonight and my mind is going a mile a minute so I decided to post and get it off my chest.   I would appreciate prayers for Mom that she will like the place and that she will do well.   I'll be back in a couple of days I plan on taking a break and just relaxing for the next day or two alone.
God Bless,
