Thanks to my many followers who have been with me since I started my review blog and Welcome to my new friends.

We are starting a new phase of our lives in an Assisted Living Home I have decided to change the focus of the blog to 4 things which are living in an Assisted Living Home, the second one Life in Boise in the 30s/40s, plants, and gardens, books I have been reading. I will not necessarily cover all with each subject every time and have no set day.

The last 3 months ago have been a nightmare for me as my husband has been ill and most of his memory has gone. A police search for his guns. They were all legal as he had followed all the gun laws. His arrival at 1:00 AM with a police escort, closing our apartment, finding a place in a home. Without help from one of my nieces, Linda I would have been lost. Now I working on the change. Each of us has a room bringing most of our belongings with us. Bob’s memory is slowly returning that is good news.

The hardest thing about living in an ALH is everything is the same all the time. Meals are set the same each day. If you miss a meal the aides come looking for you. Bob seems to adapt better themself. Entering you get a complete physical and your meds are collected and given to you each day. I am finding it is hard to adapt to the system.

    Thanks for catching us up. A new phase indeed is going on. Take care of yourself and be gentle as changes are not always easy to adjust too. Sending you lots of energy and love. 😀

  2. Change is hard, especially as we get older. I’m sorry Bob has been unwell, but it is good his memory is returning. Keep safe Bettylouise.

    I have been thinking of you! I’m so glad to hear from you.
    Change is so very hard but try to take it softly one day at a time. I will keep you both in my prayers. Hugs!

    Nice to hear that some decisions and solutions have been put into place. I know it is going to take some time to adjust and I feel for you while you go through that. Take it one day at a time and stay safe, Betty.

    It’s good news that Bob’s memory is coming back, although it can’t be easy dealing with all these changes. Take care of yourself and keep safe, Bettylouise!

  6. I wondered why I hadn’t seen any posts lately, BL, so I made sure I was following your blog daily. I’m glad you are safe and living in an assisted living situation, and that Bob is recovering. AS we age, we all need help and it can be scary to feel alone or helpless when things go wrong. Look forward to reading more about your experiences.

    I replied to you when you described your changes, but I think it was a comment on my blog so I don’t know if you saw it. I am SO HAPPY you are returning to blogging, my friend, It sounds like it has been a very rough 3 months. I am thankful your niece has been able to help you and that Bob’s memory is returning. Those changes are major ones; it must be hard. You are a strong woman, and you are making the best of it. I like your blog plans. They seem to fit well with this season of your life. It should be a no pressure time with the freedom to write about what interests you. I am looking forward to reading your posts. Stay well.

    So many changes for you both- I am glad Bob is recovering a bit. It is a big adjustment not being on your own schedule anymore. I like that you have made 4 things the focus of your blog and look forward to reading them. I hope in time you will get used to your new place, and we are all here to stay connected! Stay well.
