Dad is getting settled into the new assisted living facility. We've been told he could be confused for a month or so still.

Went up yesterday to help my brother sort through the remaining things in dad's old apartment in the independent living center - piles for me, piles for him, piles to move, piles to donate.  Extremely depressing. Like dividing up someones things after they've died - thought I guess there is a bit less emotion to doing it now. Brother has finally admitted that dad is 98 and is pretty much done with things.  I really don't see him hanging around much longer because he has no real desire to do so.

Will need to try to go back up in a couple of weekends, and maybe take SP with me this time.

      This is the discussion for my new posting Snowfalls, Fires, and Family.
      They had been pulled apart, their mother slowly falling into her mind, when he had been six. But now their mother had died just a month before and her will had asked for them to come together at least one last time to get what she has left behind for them.
      They thought they would walk away with a piece of liquidated estate and money for their own lives.
      They hadn't expected to find themselves coming back together as siblings.
      Some quick information on the story: I originally wrote this back in 2017. Before I got with my girlfriend (3 years this December 24th!), I decided that I wanted to do some holiday stories and post on Wattpad. 
      This was one of them. This one kind of went different than what I wanted to go with it originally (lots of fighting and a not so happy  ending) but then I was finding myself in a better place mentally and emotionally. 
      As for the story, it is fully complete. Two (2) chapters of Ten (10) have been posted and I'll post the rest of the chapters at least once every couple of days. The next couple of days I'm just going to let it sit for now and let others read. 
      It seems you guys seem to like it so far? I hope at least. I hope to hear your comments, questions and suggestions! It all helps me to grow as a writer and editor!
      Thank you. 
      Quick edit: in the story there is talk of mental illness and the affects on a family. Nothing graphic but still...it does talk about it.
      And yes, I had my name changed to S.L. Lewis from Rose Strailo. So kind of ignore the copyright name on past and current story please? Thank you.

      So, personally I've had to deal with some changes. I've had all sorts of issues and still dealing but fighting on. Two years ago I had two detached retinas and had surgery. Last year I ended up having a triple bypass. Add the end of a seven year relationship and things have been in a dark place.
      Decided I needed to focus on things I could do.
      First up is complete a story I left in limbo. Life changes was originally finished, but the computer I had died and then my life hit the wall. Anyway, I can't remember what I'd had originally so I just wrote a whole new ending. So the story is 8 chapters and an epilogue. 
      Secondly, I'm finishing a story for the anthology. Seeon and company will be back for this story. With a topic like in the stars how could I ignore him.
      Third, Cia has a piece up about writing a story under the theme "Coming Out". Going to try and tackle that as well.
      Finally, working on a new story but won't even say anything til that sucker is complete. When it posts I want it all set with no delays

      We'd just got our t-shirts and were waiting for the others to arrive to help with collecting money during the parade.

      Just gonna leave tissues on the side table for people who need it. This is why coming out is so important and that we live our authentic truths.
