This little sign made me smile and recall the days of my own mother helping me search the house for an item I had misplaced and was unable to find. She often asked what I would do if she wasn't around to find it for me. Once in a while she said I'd lose my head if it wasn't attached, and she was probably right.

This afternoon we have an appointment with an elder care attorney. We are once again going over Mom's finances, looking for wisdom in planning for the future, and trying to make sure everything we do is fair and legal. Although I am looking forward to getting this done, I am still finding myself tense, anxious, and in want of a nap.

In the midst of figuring out "mom stuff," we are also attempting to plan for our trip to Minnesota next month. There is a shower on Sunday afternoon (I won't be going...), a dress to buy, and all kinds of details to figure out. Fun, exciting, and scary all wrapped up into one.
