Those of us in the Sandwich Generation – caring for elderly parents while raising kids or helping with grandkids – know well we need to make the most of every moment as we can so often be over busy. I love the various ways the post office works hard to help us when they are not open (or open but even busier than us 🙂 ). I have often made good use of their automated postal machine. And I just picked up stamps at my local Walgreens. Many grocery stores carry them as well. And check these out. Aren’t they purty!
I really appreciate that I can buy postage stamps at my local Walgreens and grocery store in addition… http://t.co/JW1CKC3oUD

My senior mom and I are thoroughly enjoying the warm sunny weather this week. She was out in the yard gardening, cleaning, and blissfully enjoying herself. The Rhododendrons continue to burst out with beauty everywhere including in our yard. And the forsythia has taken off all over as well!
And oh my! Such a sweet thrill. More deer in my neck of the woods – these two were just a block away from our home. I just wish I could have enticed them down to visit my senior mom as she wasn’t feeling too perky then. But maybe next time. 🙂
Spring has been a sweet joy for my senior mom and myself. I hope you and your Sandwich Generation family are enjoying spring in your neck of the woods as well.
