Roller Coaster!

It just hasn't been the best couple of weeks and have not been in any mood to blog about anything,
My sister is home right now with her daughter,
and she is in the last stages of Hospice, she still has breathing difficulty and seems very weak..
Her daughter is getting a little relief from one sister and brother, who plan on coming up starting tonight so she can get back to work.
I have been keeping the family and friends updated via Face Book.
My son Flash set up a Family page on FB "Seth Trowbridge Family."
He is my Great Grandfather on my Mothers side, Flash has done well tracing family on both sides but probably goes back the farthest on the Trowbridges, and he has also traced my dads side the Eatons back to Francis Eaton who was one of the signers of the Mayflower compact.
A lot of English blood there, but
we have always been closest to my Moms side of the family and that may be because of the Irish link from my Moms maternal Grandparents.
My Mother had 3 sisters and 1 brother that made it to adulthood and we celebrated every holiday together when we were growing up.
My sister and I are as close to some of our cousins as we are to each other.
So far we have only lost one of that generation and my sister may be the next.
Cleo was a wild child growing up, she could drive me nuts. She was the Tomboy and I was the girly girl.
If she borrowed my clothes I always found them in a ball on the floor when she was through with them.
She is 18 months younger and she has an IQ that could have taken her anywhere.
But she chose an early marriage instead of school and it wasn't until 3 husbands and 4 kids later that she decided to go back to school for nursing and then worked at a State Institution until she retired.

On my way home today from my post op appointment a stupid ass truck driver passed to close to me and ripped off my side mirror..He kept right on driving and I stayed on his tail honking until he finally stopped.
He took all my information and said his Company's insurance would get back to me.
He gave me his number to call if I don't hear anything in a day or two

I guess I am rambling here, mostly because I don't know what to do to stop this dam roller coaster.

Right now I wish I had a nice bottle of Pinot Grigo, my green tea isn't helping much

This is breaking my heart..I just found her and we had so much in common, we were both crazy ole broads...I think the Goddess is ready to take her home. I went this morning and lit candles for everyone..one for Cleo and one for the family and one for you. let m know if there is anything I can do.

I'm so sorry...what happened w/the truck taking off your mirror seems to be an anomaly for everything else that is happening. I hope things settle down soon.

I can't picture you being a girly girl...and that's a compliment ;)

I am just catching up with everyone's blogs. I am so sorry that you are going through all of this hard stuff. We had a truck do the same thing to us, a little Datsun vs. a semi, he forced us off the road, left big damage to the car, but luckily all of us-three kids were along, going to our son's birthday party-and the company did pay for the damage.
Your sister sounds like a great lady, and her kids also sound great. It is so hard to go through all of this, I will be thinking of all of you the next few days.
