So we get home about 8:30 PM., and there's no WYFP diary up. Well, I'm an editor, so I guess it's my turn to sub. But first:
WYFP is our community's Saturday evening gathering to talk about our problems, empathize with one another, and share advice, pootie pictures, favorite adult beverages, and anything else that we think might help. Everyone and all sorts of troubles are welcome. May we find peace and healing here. Won't you please share the joy of WYFP by recommending?
One of my ongoing FP's is the fact that the visit schedule with my father-in-law inhibits my fuller participation in this forum. We've tweaked the schedule a few times, but Saturday evening always seems to be tied up with visiting him. I don't resent it, but I am expected to participate. And it's a real downer, as he seems to be giving up on life. He had cracked his right femur back in August, and seemed to be doing so well initially with his PT, then he hit a plateau and even backslid a little. I know he's depressed, primarily due to Calamity Jean's mother being in full-blown dementia, and he is over 95, but I find it depressing, myself. And I'm worried that the thing that may have triggered this setback is the fact that Calamity Jean and I are moving ahead on our new house out in Stephenson County, IL. I'm afraid my father-in-law feels like we're abandonning him at some level, since we will be ~120 miles away. I wish we'd had the house up sooner, and he hadn't become so dependent on us, but, well, y`know...
So, What's Your F[REDACTED]ing Problem tonight?
