Sometimes it's nice to just take a day trip, perhaps a museum or a special garden. The arts can be very soothing for all and it is a wonderful change of pace for not a lot of money. Many museums and galleries have handicapped ramps and so on. Some even have a restaurant. A fun and relaxing day can be just a quick trip away!

 I have had challenges travelling with my husband.  He is on oxygen and uses a scooter but nevertheless we make a point to take a vacation. 

 

Always by car and always preplanning.  The problem is trying to find places that are handicapped accessible.  This year we drove to Tn and found it to be very accommodating.  Just make sure you plan ahead and make frequent stops.  Sometimes it gets difficult but he looks forward to it because I still work full time.  Little things matter even if it is just 1 night.

It's hard to get away when you have no one to watch mom.

I loved spending time with my grandma.  She was a wonderful cook and baker.  When she moved into a retirement home, I started making her special recipes and taking them to her whenever I visited.

I took care of my grandmother who had lung cancer. Within 2 years prior, she lost her son and her husband to illness. I took care of her for 7 months.

My mother-in-law died at 90. I can relate.

Summer is all about getting that vitamin D! I love to spend time with the grandkids at the pool. Great exercise and good for the soul!
