I Feel a Crossroad Coming

July 21st, 2007 at 09:24 pm

I've been blessed with two moms. Not two people who have acted like my mom, but mom and her identical twin. Two of almost exactly the same person. Very few people can tell them apart.....and as little kids, there are stories of us not knowing which was which....and yes, they did tease us.

My 'other' mom has been widowed for decades and has had a SO for the past 20 years or so. This gentleman has just been diagnosed with inoperable cancer with months left to live. My aunt has expressed how she will in no way be able to continue to live in her current home, or in that community when her SO dies.

Mom is on the phone now, and the subject has come up about the possibility of all 3 of us moving somewhere together. Hmmmm
It could work. I would love to be somewhere other than this house, it is OK, but not my choice of areas or house or just about anything.

Mom also found a home today that is right on the beach (now this makes 2 of them she is interested in seeing) but this new one only has 2 bedrooms. I can hear her wheels turning as she tries to come up with a solution for her twin as well as satisfy her wish to live right on the beach. I'm willing to just go along for the ride!

On the financial front......no spending today, just a trip to the beach between showers so we could watch some amazing kite flying and let my week end young man watch the waves (his favorite activity).

    How Fun. My MIL is a twin and the kids adore auntie. Though at this age it stills confuses them at times, and they play tricks on them too - LOL. I've known MIL so long that though I have only met her sister a few times I can clearly tell them apart - I guess by their mannerisms, because they certainly are identical. I am sure if they wanted to they could fool anyone though.

    So sorry for her SO though...

    Oh, to live on a beach would be great!! I have always wanted to do that, but I love my mountains too.
