Things with the chickens are about the same.  Leaving them locked up.  some days all the waterers are frozen, others days not.  Hubby told me today that he is making me some water heaters for Christmas.

 

Things with my parents are just as stressful and hectic.  Both my brothers were in town over the weekend and we went looking at assisted living places.  My Mom went with us, but my Dad stayed home with my sister in law.  His health is actually the worst at the moment.  I'm not sure if we have found them a place yet or not.  Checking to see if some places have any openings at the moment.  we were able to cross a couple places off the list and added a couple of others to call to see what they have to offer.

One of my brothers said he would stay until Thursday morning, so that I would have a break.  I had been driving out to my parents every day immediately after work, then taking care of them, cooking, cleaning, running errands... then spending the night and getting up extra early in the morning to be able to get back to work ( teaching math to 6th graders) and then repeat the cycle.

Mom & Dad have agreed to having in home help 8 hours a day 5 days a week,  so they are there when I am not.  This past weekend my Dad told my sister in law that he thought they needed someone there on the weekends as well (I wasn't there since my brothers were). So now we are trying to add caregivers for 8 hours on Saturday & Sunday as well.

 

Only 1 egg again today.  I think they are protesting being locked up!

Good to hear your parents are open to receiving help! Also good to hear of your progress in looking at assisted living places. It's a lot of work.:hugs

One day we will have a world where a chicken can cross the road without being questioned about their motives. smile.png

Thanks. Yes, it's very stressful and a lot of work.  Either the rooms are way too small, they don't have any available, they don't offer the right level of care, they don't accept couples.... the list goes on and on.  We do have a couple of other places that we are checking into.  My brother is suppose to take both my parents tomorrow to see a place that sounds like it has one of the bigger "apartments" and includes a walk in closet and even has 1 available. Plus it is just about 30 minutes away from my house and about 30 minutes away from my niece's house.  Also, it is about $1,000 less a month than some of the others and seems to offer the right level of care.  Fingers crossed that my parents like it and that the pass the health assessment needed to get in.
