Welcome to my blog. I hope we can help each other endure the pain of the addiction of a daughter or son.

Better Day

  Today was a good day. Hubby and I woke up late and went to breakfast. Then we picked up his Mom at the hospital and got her situated back home. She is a lot more normal now than before. She is mostly with us in the here and now. She said...... that's a fine how dee doo..... Alzheimers.... thank you very much ......well I am back in my right mind now so let's go home. 

We spent the afternoon getting a car for Christine. It felt like old home week. AS it turned out the car salesman was my best friend's Uncle. The woman in the office was in my class 21 years ago. She remembered when I left her class to give birth to a baby. The baby was Christine!

In the evening, I made home made spaghetti and meatballs for my husband and son. We enjoyed ourselves!

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you.


  1. Hello, Anna. I'm just now visiting your blog. I'm 'enjoying' reading about you and your family. I'll spend more time when I can. I, too, loved the book, "A Tree Grows in Brooklynn", so I already feel a conncection to you. Hang on.

  2. My mom passed away almost four years ago; and I was grateful for every moment that I had with her. No Alzheimer's but lots of physical problems in the last years of her life. Treasure every good moment, good day, you deserve them!

  3. I love your mom's spunky response to her diagnosis. Good for her! And I love your daughter's loving heart, wanting to take care of her Nana. :)
