[SIGH] As you can see from our phone record here, Grandma doesn't want us to get any sleep around our house. The first three calls were wondering if Breanna was home yet and was OK. She said on the 3rd call that she was watching out the window for her. On the 4th call (just before 1AM) she was wondering how Marilyn was doing since she was probably worn out from taking care of Grandma's twin babies. We let the message machine answer them all, but it still kept us up. Well, we researched it and found out Comcast has this nice feature where you can make a list of phone numbers, then easily turn blocking of those numbers on and off. We've started blocking her number every night. Keith solved the problem by forwarding calls at night to his cell phone and turning the cell phone off. It's only a matter of time before she starts calling someone else now she won't be able to get through to us. The problem is that if Grandpa really does have an emergency, he won't be able to contact us (unless he uses his cell phone), but we just can't let the midnight calls keep coming in. Grandpa G got lost in the parking lot of Kohler's the other day and Marilyn had to go find/rescue him as she came out of the store a bit after he did. She said he was wandering around crying. If I happen to make it to 70 years old, I give my permission to slip me some lethal drugs. If I ever have a heart attack and someone resuscitates me or calls an ambulance, you WILL be my least favorite person. This maintain life at all costs attitude a lot of people have is bunk. On a happier note, Chad came over yesterday and I enjoyed talking to him for a few minutes....Brigham also showed up on his way back from his interview at the U of U and it was good to talk to he & his mom for a few minutes. Brigham, you looked sharp! You also have me cautiously optimistic, heavy on the cautiously. I'm waiting with bated breath to hear what your choice order is.

No, I got up on one of them to tell her everything with everyone was fine and to stop worrying and go back to bed, hoping that she'd get off of her efforts to kill our entire nights sleep....but, it didn't work.

I feel sorry for my three grandparents. man, it must be rough to get old.

Dad- I would hope you would want to be resuscitated until you are a bit older-- how 'bout saying nobody can resuscitate you after age 70. I'd like to keep my dad around for awhile and you are not getting senile yet.

Maybe someone could slip some Lunesta or something into a drink right before she goes to bed each night... Brigham, got any good ideas?

Brigham not only looks sharp-- he is sharp! We can't wait for him to get home!

The problem with pills to help old folks sleep, and not have anxiety etc is that they often backfire and make problems worse.
