New Year+New Life= Crazyness

It has been forever since I last blogged. My mother-in-law, Hana, hurt her back the beginning of November. She is now doing so much better, but while she was recovering, we moved in with her. I've taken a leave of absence from work so I can care for her and Rick's aunt who is also living at my mother-in-laws. Cooking, cleaning and caring for 8 people is a huge undertaking. Rick's aunt, Chiyoko, is in a hospital bed, requiring quite a bit of care. Hospice workers, nurses, meals on wheels, therapists, preschool carpooling and trips to the bus stop take up most of our days.

Things are going well, I like the routine with the kids back in school. Planning and cooking most meals has been rough. I really need some menu ideas. Trying to decide what stuff of ours to take over, what to do with the rest of our stuff and what to do with our house has been a challenge. Making room for our stuff has also been a challenge.

Soon we should have computer access at our new residence.
Happy New Year
