A Weekend Away On My Own.
November 9, 2017 3:37pm CST
Tomorrow (Friday) I am going for a break completely on my own. There is a concert I want to attend on Sunday night, and it's in a town 70 miles away, but my husband wasn't keen to go. I wouldn't leave him on his own as he needs quite a lot of care (he's 87), but fortunately our daughter is staying with us at the moment.. That being the case, I decided to treat myself to a whole weekend away. I'm so looking forward to it. Would you go off on your own if you had the chance?

@jaboUK I know. My husband and I cannot travel due to my being the Power of Attorney for my elderly dad. Also, if an emergency occurs with Dad, at age 96, I do not feel right putting the burden on my sister to handle all that needs to be done all by herself. We tried to go to Florida for a month when Dad was age 94, but we had to come back 4 days later due to Dad landing in the hospital.

@allknowing It's good for each of you to have your own space, but now we are together practically 24/7 as we are both retired. In the summer I have my gardening, but in the winter I only have the time after he's gone to bed. He does go to bed early though, so then I'm on the computer until the early hours.
