Yesterday morning I received a call from the nursing home where my mother has been living for the past few years. Though physically frail, Mom has been doing pretty well mentally, and we had a wonderful visit with her back in June. Now, however, she is failing, the nurse tells me, and they don't expect her to bounce back the way she has in the past. This is hard news, of course. I need to visit her as soon as I can arrange it.
But meanwhile, I also want to keep up with my project to become better organized, and catch up with the entries I've missed.
