I removed the ad, as you can see. It really does detract from the awesome header and I just love it too much to do that. Thanks for your thoughts guys!
On a far more serious topic, we received a phone call today from a social worker from the Jewish community center my mother in law goes to. She was concerned because people have been complaining about my MIL. Apparently her neighbors have been complaining that she is knocking on their door at all hours of the night and that her personal hygiene is poor. Her friends at the center have been complaining she is bothering them and acting strangely. It was shocking to hear this. We see her almost every week and she is always meticulously dressed and made up. And her apartment is always clean.
We thought we had a little longer before we were going to have to move her to a nursing home, but if these "complaints" are true, it may be time now. Rich will talk with the social worker tomorrow and we will set up a family meeting. Always a good time dealing with Rich's brother and his wife. Not.
I joke about my MIL being crazy, but really, I feel sorry for her. I know this is very difficult for her. She knows her mind isn't working right, although I don't think she's ever really grasped that she has Alzheimer's. Actually, I'm not sure anyone has ever come out and told her.
I wouldn't wish this on anyone.
