That could be my mom's couch, except she has boxes and bags of chocolates and peanuts, besides crosswords, novels, and handiwork.

@beach: Every afternoon mother would load her medications and what she thought were necessary items into that bag on the floor. All kinds of things. She would prepare to go home. Leave the apartment to head home. But she was home. She had lived in that ocean front apartment for about 25 years. We had to move her from there to assisted living about a month later, 11 April. She was no longer able to take care of herself. She was no longer eating enough. No longer drinking enough water. And certainly she wasn't taking her medications correctly.

My mother eventually fell (didn't break anything thankfully) and we had to move her to a nursing home. She's still there (94 yrs old). Mind sharp as a tack, but pretty much immobile now.

@beach: As Betty Davis said, "getting old ain't for sissies" or something like that. My mom passed this past 12 June. She was no longer in reality. The last time I saw her she was talking to and seeing people in her room who were not there. I think she was seeing kids from her childhood. She was also screaming into the air, talking to my sister, niece, etc. People who were in New York. She was living in Florida. It was sad and freaky and I thought I just hope she is at peace now.
