Dad fell down the stairs and Mom had to call the ambulance. Heather is on her way there to assess the situation and then she is supposed to call me. I had been considering going there tomorrow to do some work before I went to Indy to get Michael... just this evening I thought maybe I should bring Mom and Dad down for a few days and let them have a break from their house. Maybe if Dad doesn't have to stay in hospital we can still do that. I must be optimistic to think that I can do it for a week, but maybe that's telling me something. I could put them to work during the days identifying the pictures that I have piled in the "unknown" section and Dad can watch all the CSI he wants.

I went and did lots of shopping today to buy mostly household stuff. I have a paranoia about running out of laundry detergent, fabric softener, toilet paper, dish soap and stuff like that and it was time for a refill. I also got a nice cardigan at Goodwill and a very nice cotton blanket at Opportunity House. Katie came with me and got some stuff she has needed for a while, but has been loathing the idea of buying. She also found a pair of jeans at OPP House and she really needs some new clothes with winter coming on.

Well, I would like to blog a little more, but I feel like I need to go get some stuff done in case I end up on the road for the rest of the weekend or with extra people here. Most of it is stuff I need to do anyway - you should see my list for today. Even I am overwhelmed by today's list and realize I am going to have to recognize the futility of the bad "p" word and that I can't accomplish everything I want every day. I guess the "p" word for right now is PRIORITIZE!

I will return and report on dad's condition and/or injuries.
