Things have been rather tense here the past few weeks. My brother went in for surgery (cancer) to remove part of his lung and there are complications in getting him off he respirator. He has a history with alcohol and cigarettes which is not helping. He's out of state so I'm on pins and needles trying to figure out what to do. I'm his closest family so I'm not sure if I'm flying out just as my daughter is flying home from college. Has me all stressed out. Still don't know if he will be going into a care home for rehab or if I need to hire a caregiver or what. Trying to wrap up Christmas and get things as settled as I can so I can make fast decisions if need be. I'm pretty much cracking the whip over here to make things come together in double-time. (I'm going to have to take a good hard honest look at the holidays come January -- in our new situation with DD gone. I may add up all my receipts and decide we need to go on a trip next year instead! I'm just really struggling this year.)
* Find the darn socks that go with the pajama sets. ;-)
* Finish exchanges (like the sweater thet is going back because DD sent me a photo of her cute new sweater that she got (identical to the one I got her for Christmas.) I'll get her a different color.
