SEPTEMBER 16, 2002

Blue sky and sun again. This weekend we packed up an elderly friend's household - what part of it would fit into a pick-up and a car. We are moving her to assisted living in Ripon. She really has no choice in the matter - and she's not happy about the loss of control over her life. I have to remind both M. and myself that we didn't create the situation she is in, we are trying to make the best of her circumstances for her. It's the loss of control over things that's a hard issue. That's true for any of us. It is especially true when you think you are competent to take care of yourself, and clearly you are not.
