I started this blog as a way to work through the various frustrations of having my 97-year-old father living with me and my family. I felt that I could either vent in a healthy way here or vent in an unhealthy way there.

I chose here.

I also started it as a way to connect with people who might be in the same situation I'm in. I wanted to let them know that they weren't alone in what they were going through and that they weren't alone in what they were feeling.

Raising a child is hard.

Raising a parent is harder.

And, not that it matters, but most of it is true.
