We had Bob's mom live with us for 23 years....

so I understand taking care of parents. And at the end, my SIL needed some extra money so she would go in and clean for her. Otherwise, she was on her own because she was SO independent she didn't want our help for anything. But she was also barely 60 when she came here because she was depressed after Bob's dad died suddenly and his brother moved in with her and she wanted to get out from under her house. Except then, she basically hated living here for a very long time even though she had her own "little house" in the back that was built for her.

And I took care of my own mother and when she couldn't clean her house and my SIL didn't want to anymore, I went and cleaned it while my own house was cleaned by Alma. And when mom was gone, I watched over my aunt that never married or had kids BUT I drew the line at cleaning HER house too. She found someone else to do it. I was her "uber" that took her everywhere she wanted and needed to go and believe me, there were times that I wished I didn't have to.

So, I'm not looking for approval or credit or whatever, but I know what it was like for them to get old and need help and what it's like for me.

I think I've not just explained but over explained my current life to you.
