Just got home. Not leaving for a long time. It's SO nice to be back in the peaceful surroundings of my own place :-)
We got all of Mom's stuff moved over to her new home (except her pillows and toothbrush, which will go with her on Monday). The family home she will be living in is absolutely gorgeous, with the nicest people to care for her. Rada and Marius are delightful, and Rada speaks Italian (she also says Mom is like all the ladies she knew in Italy, which is true for good or ill lol).
It's going to be difficult for her to adjust to a new place, as it is for anyone when making a major life change. But it's a relief to know that she will be in a clean, lovely home with caring people. I am thankful that my siblings made it possible for her to stay in her own home for as long as they did, but it was definitely time to make this change. And whether she understands it or not, it's a healthier environment for her.
Tomorrow, I'm going to be lazy and just bask in the peace and quiet of home!
