DH's father passed away 2 weeks ago. DH has been overseas helping his mom, but will return just in time for Christmas. (We don't do much but it will be nice to have him home all the same.) He's been a really big help to his mom (getting death certificates, contacting government agencies and probate court, taking her out to eat, etc., etc.), and I feel so proud of him.

There will be more changes to come. His mom will probably move back to where she used to live, to be closer to friends, family, and her religious group.

DH & I will probably have another discussion about whether a move to be closer to MIL is feasible, necessary, and/or desirable. If we are going to move, I'd rather do it sooner rather than later . . . for many reasons, the main one having to do with work and my age.

If we do decide to move, I'll have to start a new blog section: "relocating to a high cost part of the USA" - ha

    May peace be with your family during this difficult time. I hope that the best possible solution arises for your MIL's living situation. I live in a HCOLA right now, I would not be happy about returning!
