Life is much more complicated now that I have people in my house. It used to be just my own problems and the dogs' problems. Now we have school problems and retired people problems. My mother and I have given up on helping my nephew with his homework. To save our mental health we have hired a college student to tutor him. If this doesn't work then maybe a second year of 8th grade is what he needs.
My parents' house still hasn't sold but I have decided to show them the possibilities of retirement living. Tomorrow we are going to visit one of those apartment type places with activities, food, and assistance if needed. I think we will visit one place every weekend. They usually offer a free lunch so at least we will get that. Next weekend we can try a place on the East side and then the South. My mother is reluctant but hopefully she will like them. I want her to meet some friends who share her interests and can relate to her problems but I still want to live nearby.
One of my dogs got adopted last week. They get a one week trial period so I got an email today that said they love her and want to keep her. I still have 2 little fosters. I should go to an adoption event but I'd rather get a free lunch at the retirement community. I know, I know...those aren't really exciting weekend plans. Someone has to do the research though so we might as well get started.
