1 "Because We Are One Big Family" | Sharing My Trip To Austin By Nana B.

"I decided I needed to go to Austin to try and help my family get my father moved from his Independent Apartment to his Assisted Living. Actually, he has already moved to the Assisted Living but most all of his furniture and other belongings stayed at the old apartment. Because it is already rented to someone else it must be clear of everything. So that is the reason I decided to try to help.

Now, I don’t know about you, but being around my children of close to middle age, was exhausting. First I spent the night with my recently single daughter and her daughter, laughing and having a full-fledged slumber party including watching “Bridesmaids” the movie. It was a fun but not at all restful.
The next morning, bright and early, I met my brother and his college age daughter at the apartment and began to fill boxes and make piles everywhere, one box for Goodwill, one for each family member, one to take to Daddy, etc. We went to lunch and came back to work some more. Then I had to be at another daughter’s house to get ready to go to a high school Gymnastics tournament for my Junior, in high school, grandchild. He seems to be very talented and placed second all round in the tournament. Though I was very tired.

The next morning we went back to the apartment and packed the rest of everything and loaded a 15 foot trailer. Worked all day but when the day was done at the apartment, we had to get ready to go to a 10, 11 and 12 year old football Championship Game. My 11 year old grandson played on the Longhorns vs the Capital City Bear Cats, both of which were undefeated for the season. I felt just like an old woman as my children got me a seat with a back to sit on, fixed it on the stadium seat, covered me with a blanket and oh, they never let me drive in town when they were with me. I looked at some of the elders in the stadium and said, "Do your children make you feel old? If my girlfriends at home could see this, they would crack up laughing." I think you probably know what I mean. Back to the game, the Longhorns won 24 to 12 and my grandson came home with a beautiful Championship medal.

Needless to say, I left for home at 7:15 the next morning to get home and REST!"

I can completely relate to this. Everyone assumes that white hair means that you need coddling. My body might look old, but I feel about 18 in my mind. Thank you for sharing this.
