Well in 1 week I pick Jim up at his respite from me. Started the day with a call from home telling me he had a fall while trying to reach his glasses. He hasn't cared whether he had them on or not for months. Oh well it was a soft fall and no injuries. Went for a mani-pedi and massage. A gift from my daughter and my husband for my birthday last week. Glorious!!! I have packed and ready to go to a conference for the Grand Chapter of the Eastern Star in Ontario for 4 days. Time flies. Looking forward to old faces and new friends. Next Friday will come quickly. I realize how much I miss him beside me in the life we built together and he can no longer participate in. I am not ready to let go but know it is coming. I hope I can cope when I pick him up next Friday.
