    Hi Toni, Nice to hear from you!
    I have been through Griffith a few times -I live in Frankfort IL which is maybe 20 miles west of Griffith.
    (Frankfort is south of rt80 just south of OrlandPark and west of rt57)
    Your right Chicago has many goodies to offer,and what is nice about Griffith and Frankfort is the small town appeal(we still have cornfields in town) but you can jump on the express way and be downtown chicago in half an hour-or 2 hrs depending on traffic...lol
    I work for a construction co and am downtown several days a week(the last couple of years we have been doing alot of work at millenium park and the big addition to the art institute).Back in 1990 I worked at the prudential building for a few weeks.
    Thats whats nice about Starved Rock ,its only about an hour west and I found a"rustic"campground where I can leave my trailer so that we can go on a whim-the traileris sitting waiting for us with a minimal amount of set up to do.

    Hope you are doing well-Niall

Accepting our limitations

by Nonna on 06-27-2014 at 03:45 AM
I've tried, I did well while both were in reasonably good health. But now with Mother's fall resulting in a broken elbow; I find that I must accept my limitations. I can not physically care for her. I have irrated my shoulder, pulled a muscle in my back that can not heal while I continue to lift her when she slips, catch her when she starts to fall. She will not listen to me because I'm the daughter. I thought I could do this as last year went so well. But this year has been terrible 2 stays

As the world turns, do I?

by Nonna on 04-19-2014 at 09:47 AM
I'm feeling out of sorts at the moment and can't figure it out. My health is pretty stable but I think I'm unhappy, tired of coping. Coping with everything, tired of dealing with my Mother's idiosyncrasies, tired of dealing with my Father's spurts of temper because he believes I'm ignorant. I know it's just a mood and I'll get over it.

It's just this trapped feeling, I'm working around it, getting rid of it. But still, every now and then it gets to me...... Like today. I just

Hang in there

by Nonna on 02-12-2014 at 06:27 PM
Hang in there, that's all I seem to hear. Besides my father's heart condition, now my mother has one also. Her stay in the hospital shocked her so much that her mind is really deteriorating. I'm having a bad day physically and she keeps repeating herself. She also said she couldn't find her hearing aids, so in the middle of trying to cook lunch, I had to go look for them. Couldn't find. Them anywhere. 2 hours later we discover that they were in her ears. This evening while I was cooking dinner,

Eeyore Days Part 2

by Nonna on 12-10-2013 at 08:19 PM
Where do I begin and how do I say this. I don't know if it's selfish or not. We had a beautiful day today no problems at all, then I made the simple mistake of going into the kitchen, Mom walked away and left me there to watch over what was on the stove. According to her I took it off the stove too soon and dinner wasn't hot enough to suit her. Mind you the food has to be hot the plates warmed and everything on the table at six. She then proceeds to spent the entire evening harping on everything

Here I go again

by Nonna on 09-15-2013 at 10:26 AM
Well, here I go again. I've been in Florida since April, I finally got the insurance stuff straightened out and am running low on meds. Now I have to tackle new docs. I'm trying to put together my med history and med list. Googled docs and I'm ready to start calling.

I feel ok, hardly any pain, but my stress levels are back through the roof. My Mother's mind is going and I have to deal with outbursts now.

I'm caretaker now 24/7, but I get an hour or two to myself
