The Post I Never Wanted to Write

Three months have gone by since I last posted. A week after my last post my dad had to go to the hospital. He was weak and could not walk on his own. We thought he just needed to get some fluids and he would be back to normal in a few days. We were pretty shocked to find out his kidney's were failing and three days later we lost him. He was the most amazing man, and it has taken a great toll on our family to say the least.
To make a long story a little shorter, we have moved my mom. and I have spent most of my time the last few months getting her settled in a new apartment. She is in a different senior living apartment where meals are supplied, so it much better for her. She has macular degeneration and cannot see well enough to cook for herself.
The good thing is my mom loves to go antiquing, so we have done a lot of estate sales to keep busy. It has been a big help. We have been taking all of our finds to our booths at Sentimental Journey and keeping them stocked.  We have actually had some record months this winter. I will try to start taking pictures and posting our finds. We love to go the last day of the sales to get in on the markdowns.
We sure miss you Daddy, but we are making the best of things.
Love, Ann
