Thanks for listening

Thanks for listening about my stuff. I'm trying to distract myself from the continuing decline of aging inlaws. MIL just got a dx of renal stenosis. They have to sell their cows, and dh is trying to help with those decisions which isn't going that well. Neighbors are swarming like vultures wanting to buy the property but they are still living!!!! I just listen, but I reached my saturation point today.

I think that's why I write. I have no illusions of making money as a writer but it's a great escape.

Anyway thanks for listening.

I am sorry to hear about your MIL and the resulting stress and the vultures. Writing is a good outlet for getting out stress. Walking is great too in case you need another outlet. Take care.

So sorry about the new stress to your life. Glad you have your writing. I read your book and ENJOYED it. Keep at it. It's so nice to have an outlet for your stress. It is also wonderful to have something tangable to show for your days. I'm sorry I downloaded on a free day. I wish I had payed to help fund your habit.

I am so sorry to hear about your MIL. What their neighbors are doing is so incredibly insensitive!

You are right about writing! Its a great escape. I feel the same way about it, as well as music. I can get lost in it whether I am playing, singing or listening!

Update: dh found a solution, a renter for the land and buyer for the cows that they trust. They agreed!!! Big load off his mind.

Last winter, fil was driving a feed truck and almost ran over mil. They didn't seem to understand the gravity of the situation. It's solved now.

Dh was about to need a tranquilizer shot worrying about it since he couldn't physically go down to help, which was always "the plan".

It's all good now. Now if we could keep mil (who is legally blind) off the roads. She "only goes the back roads" I DON'T LIKE GETTING OLDER!!!!

My husband was a police officer. He used to tell me about this old couple who would drive around town. The only problem was that he could drive, but was blind and she could see but couldn't drive. So their solution was for him to drive while she told him where to go.
