Just wanted to let you know that I am missing many of the guild meetings due to caregiver duties. My mother was in the hospital for several days in January. They have let her go home on hospice care. She is on an oxygen machine and cannot leave her apartment. She is currently able to care for herself during the week, but I must help with cleaning, bill pay, laundry, and do all of the shopping in addition to my own. Since I am not yet retired, Saturday used to be a day off, but now I am typically taking care of her needs, and my own on Sunday. Come Monday, repeat. Therefore, Emma Stillwater is not around. Take care everyone!
