True, Diane, they have their own lives. Which is what we both want for them but not what we want for ourselves!

I have been beyond blessed to have mine near, and having them even living with me at times, Leslie. And now, Dewdrop isnt gone for long, shell be trekking back and forth monthly. So, I am looking at the bright side, and knowing that we are lucky to have an arrangement so that I still get to see her. My heart goes out to you, that must be so hard! Im whiny about a couple of weeks. I need to count my blessings a lot more.

Its not easy to have loved ones far away, but the love is always there. And I know it is much tougher for her parents, but they are troupers and doing their best for her, Im proud of them both. Good luck to you, too, Jeannine.

Of course, Sharmi. If you cant lift it to set it onto a drop cloth, Get some thick painters tape and tape around the legs so paint doesnt get on the floor. Slip the edges if the tape under the legs as much as you can to protect the floor and tape right to the flooring. Use plenty of tape. Then use whatever drop cloth will fit underneath to catch drops.
