Well, it's been a while since I posted, but my attention has been elsewhere.
The parent comes out of hospital tomorrow and we have been busting our butts to make the house more 'walker' friendly by shifting furniture and removing obstacles. We've created a nice haven on the ground floor where she'll be more comfortable.
There are still some issues to resolve, but nothing major; all it takes is compromise and a little extra effort.
Hopefully, by next week, I'll be able to get back to a near-normal schedule. I have work waiting for me that really needs to be caught up on.
