Another day in ?????

Didn't do much today; just a little financial management. These days it's really tough for me to figure out where our investments should be placed. I guess you just take your best shot. After all, that's what the pros do!

Just finished 'blink' - excellent book! Talks about how we judge people and situations in an instant. The author says it is both good and bad that we (humans) can do this. Very cool book; it's an easy read but has a neat viewpoint and adds something to popular psychology bookshelves. Check it out.

Don In Florida

Don In FloridaRecently my MIL has been hospitalized for various things culminating in an operation about two weeks ago. She's been in the hospital for an entire month as of today. My wife is an only child so we are visiting at least every other day. Going to the hospital that much, driving through the 15 or so miles of traffic, being unsure of whether she is going to survive or not, sure takes it out of you. Our daughter complained the other day that it is all we can talk about any more. She's right. It overwhelms every other aspect of our lives. Fun and laughter are in really short supply around here these days.

Dull, Dull, Dull!!

Still hanging around home. Mother is still dementia bound. MIL has had surgery for various internal problems; isn't out of the woods yet. The rains have started a bit so the lawn looks better. If we'd do something to it we might have a nice place. Driving down to the hospital every other day does take something out of you. I'm admiring my Dad more than usual; he was fine until he went into the hospital & had the grace to die in about 2 days. I know my mother & MIL are thinking he did the right thing! I only wish I could have seen him one last time.
