"Who's going to be the Thanksgiving hostess? She's already worrying about Christmas, too. "One day she thinks it would be easier to have all of us. The next, she has decided it's better to go to my brother's house or mine. In the meantime, my sister-in-law and I don't know what preparations to make. "If the traveling is hard on her, we'd both be willing to go to her house and all three work together. But I suspect that this year, since my father has passed on, one of us will end up as hostess. Which one isn't the problem, but getting something decided is." I mentioned in a recent column how many older women, and even older couples, dread trips planned ahead in unpredictable holiday weather. Grandma may much rather do all the preparation herself than have to take the trip. If there's a Grandpa around, he may shy away from a long drive. The kindest thing married children can do in that event is to accept Grandma's invitation and lend whatever help they can when they get there. One independent woman said, "I would rather be completely alone than on sufferance with a family who believes an older female is a responsibility. My son always had to come and pick me up and take me back. I know his wife considered it a nuisance. She wanted his help at home. I'm not as strong as I used to be. When everyone else started off for a post-dinner walk, someone had to stay home with Grandmother. "I've lived many holidays, some good and not-so-good. If being alone is another one of the not-so-goods, I'm old enough to philosophize about it." K.S.A. Our great idea that lets you shop in November and pay conveniently next year !
