Here's my mom's new room set up. It's slightly less square footage than the respite room, but otherwise it's not all that much different. The living and bed rooms are separated by a hallway with a kitchenette in it rather than a dividing wall/shelf thing. I just realized that I forgot to take photos of the bathroom, but I think I did rather a good job of that with a pretty seashell shower curtain and beach themed pictures on the walls. She seems to like it well enough, so that's what's important. I'm going to try and take over a shelf unit this weekend and eventually get some more things o the walls, but for the most part the decorating is complete.
The next week may be a bit complicated, since Jack's Uncle Chuck passed away yesterday and he'll be going out to Philadelphia for the funeral. We're not exactly sure of the day yet, so I'm not sure which days I'll have to ask off from work or try to cobble together some sort of childcare solution. It's a bit of a quandary since we've never really had Nathan cared for by anyone but us, with the exception of one evening with Jack's sister and a morning with my grandmother's neighbor in Ohio. If only she was here in Missouri!
I scheduled my mom for an appointment with her neurologist on Wednesday, so hopefully that will be one of the days that Jack's away. I'll feel a little less guilty about asking off from my brand-new job if it's too take care of BOTH of my dependents.
