We are what we only pretend to be. So we must be careful about what we pretend to be. Kurt Vonnegut
As a frog with no little tadpoles of my own, I often wonder what will become of me in my dottage. I'm now dealing with my parents approaching the end of their lives, and I guess I'm worrying more about it these days.
I do too, Kvatch. I never really have been one to plan so much for the future (a Life Ins policy picked up during marriage #2 not-with-standing) but am hoping I do the dream: Move to the desert before I'm too old, and find a nice spot to mummify. :) Strange, but dreamily serious.
I have planned. Whew. There are some great programs out there that are affordable for elder care. Happy to pass them along for anyone interested.
