Welcome To My World

It has been almost 4 months since my last blog post and I am sure all of you have been holding your breath wondering when I was going to post again!  Well, you can now breathe easier because here I am!

I guess we have some catching up to do, but I am really not sure where to begin.....

As most of you know, my mom fell and hit her head in December 2010.  You can read more about it here.  Life as I knew it changed that day.  Mom is in a nursing home now because of that fall.  It left her partially paralyzed on her left side.

Fast forward to January 2013.  My dad was starting to get dizzy when he stood up and it was causing him to fall a lot.  He was hospitalized for a while and when he got out tall man and I moved in with him.  We still had to go to work, so this left him home alone during the day.  He fell one day and couldn't reach the phone and he was on the floor for several hours before tall man got home.  We took him to the ER because he was complaining of being in so much pain.  They kept him several weeks and then sent him to the nursing home for physical therapy.  Luckily, he was sent to the same nursing home that my mom is in.  He hasn't been able to regain enough strength to come home, so he is still in the nursing home too, but he doesn't seem to mind.  As he said, he has a roof over his head, three meals a day and snacks whenever he wants them.  He also has several aides that love him and wait on him hand and foot, so he doesn't complain too much!

Tall man and I are still living in my parents home and we have moved my sister in to our home.  For those that don't know my sister I will not bore you with the details (maybe I'll leave that for another post).  She has MS and doesn't drive, so she depends on me for everything.

So, there you go.  That's what keeps me busy most of the time and why I haven't been able to post much.  As I have said before, I am really going to try to post once a week.  I'm not sure what all I will post about.  Maybe a little bit of everything.  I still want to post some about couponing and dieting.  Let's just keep it open for now and it will be a surprise.

As always, thanks for stopping by and spending
