Thank you Lou.
I am waiting for the dates, and then making my plans. Dad doesn't even know he is going on a little vacation yet. He has been very cranky, demanding, and spiteful these past few days. When my friend was here from California he went into the hospital the night she came. Last night I had my neighbor over, he lost his wife, and we had some wine and a barbecue. We tried doing this at his house a few weeks ago, and dad started with his panic mode, and I gave into it. Now, my kids were upstairs, and me, hubby and the neighbor were on my deck. Out of nowhere dad falls. I am wondering what he is pulling here. Is he starving that much for attention? I know that sounds harsh, but this is what he would do to my mom when I was young. Always trying to get attention. So, he is going on a little vacation. Let's see how my siblings do with this for only a week, and how he does with them. Like I said.....Guilt FREE for ME.
