Finally after months of hard work my dad surrendered his license yesterday. just as I was leaving him he decided he was going to try and go back to get his license. Been with dad for 1 1/2 hrs. today and I am frazzled....... NOW he wants me to drive him everywhere. Uhhhhh NO!!! He has to make some choices to stay active. he has been given several options so now it's up to him. I just hope that I can hold out till this part of his life is settled. I'm considering a support group that the social worker suggested to me. It's time to take a step back and stay clear of dad for a while to get myself together. I never realized how difficult it would be to care for my aging father. First my mother now my father.... I'm not so sure that I can physically or emotionally handle much more.

Sorry for the ranting needed to get that off my mind in hopes that maybe I'll be able to get some rest this afternoon. I need to try to get at least three hours of rest. (Missy) Nikki is treating me to a movie tonight. The New Moon premiere at 12:01am. I'm actually excited since I haven't done much of anything for a while. Nikki is such a sweetheart. She knows how to make her mum feel better. just geting me out of the house and away from everything for a while will help. It also helps that we are best friends too.

Have a great day or night all,

Shirley
