Not doing so well...

I haven't really posted much about my Mom lately. That's because last week she was in a pretty bad state with depression setting in. She denied that she was depressed, but I saw the tell tale signs of shingles setting in again. It was a pretty busy week of phone calls, and errand running, but worth every minute. I think that it made me, and my brother feel like we could finally help her out. So it was off to the store, and helping with the garbage, cool cloths, and just being there. It felt good to help her out.

This week the mood swings aren't as bad. Anyone that has had shingles knows what I am talking about. This week she is going through the angry period. That is ok. We are giving her plenty of help, and also distance when she needs it.

We are currently not pushing about the living arrangements. We are now planning on possibly building a new home right here. I really would hate to give up my NYC view. That would suck. So many new homes are going up, and I have a great lot with a sucky house. So... perhaps very soon you will be hearing building details.

I will be posting some pictures that have been found in the next few days. I really am quite scattered when it comes to getting any one thing done lately. I'm sure this is normal as well.

Bye for now!

Sorry to say Kelly, be prepared for it to get worse - i mean, your mom's depression. But she knows you're there for her, so it'll all get better in time.
