What! Again?  
And so the disasters continue. My mother fell down AGAIN and damaged herself. It seems to be a bad hobby she can't shake, coupled with some stunningly bad decisions. The only wonder is she didn't break anything this time, just gave herself impromptu dermabrasion.

The sister of a good friend died very suddenly and unexpectedly. I am trying to help my friend go through her things. No easy task, as she was a hoarder. Going through piles of stuff, I get such a feeling of hopelessness—her hopelessness. It's very sad.

The good thing is I did get my mother to think about looking around before she charges across parking lots, tripping over the concrete curbs and parked cars. Yes, one time she tripped over a parked car. She didn't notice it in her hurry. Le sigh.

*hugs tightly* I am so sorry things are going so poorly right now, honey! I am keeping you, your mom, and your friend in my thoughts and prayers!

Oh, thank you, sweetie. You are always so sympathetic. It really scares me when my mother does this because she's so terribly frail. Then she complains about the injuries when if she just took a moment to look around, she wouldn't have fallen!

Her attaché case skittered out into the parking lot and she couldn't stand up, so she CRAWLED out there to retrieve it! Someone could have run her over! And she had her cell phone on her so why? Le sigh.

My poor friend. This has changed her whole life. Her sister lived with their mother and now my friend has had to move in as her mother can't live alone. Plus her mum has a broken back right now. Tragic.

Thank you so much for your kind thoughts. <3

If it's not one thing, it's another, eh? Wanna go live under a rock with me?
