Sunday was a very hard day. My siblings and I met at my mom's house to divide up the household contents in order to prepare to put the house on the market. After my dad passed away three years ago, my mom lived alone for a while. She was really struggling without him and ended up at my sister's house, where she lived for the next year. Dealing with her memory issues really wore my sister down. We also worried about my mom being home alone all day alone, so we started to look at other options. Last March we moved her into a nice assisted living facility and hired sitters for nine hours every day. After the sitter leaves, the workers at the assisted living check on her periodically during the night. The house has been sitting empty all this time and we knew if something happened to it, the insurance company would refuse to cover any claims.
There has been terrible animosity amongst some of the siblings and ladies, I can tell you that sibling rivalry is alive and well in my family. But that's another story and believe me, you really don't want to hear it.
In the coming days, I will be posting about the things that I brought home with me. I've been doing some internet research to learn more about each item and I'll share that with you as well. Here's a little sneak preview.....
Hope everyone had a fantastic Valentine's Day!
