Poppy's House

Poppy's house has been a big project this summer not to mention his round-the-clock care. Everyone pitched in. My brother, Mark, and his family came down many times to help. We also hired a number of people to accomplish a variety of jobs. And,  I can't forget to mention Teresa for all her help with the care of my dad.

Anyway, Teresa and her family moved in Labor Day weekend. I tried to get a few photos together before they all settled in. We still have a few loose ends to take care of, but we're basically done.

It would have been nice to have before and after pictures. This project, though anticipated, came on so quickly and encompassed our lives. I didn't have enough sense to think about before pictures and we were scrambling as it was to get photos before Teresa moved in. I can't believe how overwhelmed I got with all the other things we had going on, but it's done. We got through it and I admit, in spite of it all, my feelings are bitter-sweet.

So here's some photos, click on Poppy's House.  It's a new phase in the care of my father. He's home and our caregiver, Teresa, will be providing full-time care. 

There is no place like home.
