the sandwich generation

Snow is grand for music but makes buying and selling houses a bit more difficult -snow glad for no snow right now except in this lovely songMy senior parents absolutely loved Glenn Miller and his music. My dad was probably the biggest fan, but my mom still enjoys his music thoroughly. I discovered this delightful rendition of one of my favorite songs of the Season, Sleigh Bells, by the Glenn Miller Orchestra, with a fascinating story behind the music. You can read about that by clicking here. Or just click below to enjoy the lovely music and snowy scenes.

A fun bit of Christmas music to enjoy with your family, including your senior parents. And you'll find two more fun songs of the season today at SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation as a Christmas gift to you and yours. PLUS be sure to pop over and say hi to various grandparents at Grandma's Briefs. 🙂 Merry Christmas, Y'all. 🙂 🙂 🙂

This Brita 10 cup pitcher is a big hit for this Sandwich Generation caregiver who just moved into a new home.jpgI love water! Generally speaking, it tastes great and it's very healthy for us, as well as our senior parents AND our grandkids. But what happens if we move to a new home and don't like the taste of the water? I've gone through that with a couple of homes over the past two decades. And one of my sweet seniors has dealt with that as well.

My relative went the bottled water route. She loved the taste of it, found it quite handy, used the company for years. This time around, I gave Brita a try. I drink a lot of water, so I bought the 10 cup pitcher you see above. It's not perfect but I am very happy with it. It makes the water taste great again, removing the metallicy taste our water seems to have.  

My senior mom hasn't noticed any taste issues so she has been quite happy getting her water from the sink. If that changes, I told her I'd get her a smaller one since mine would be too heavy and big for her to handle easily. They have a 5-Cup Slim pitcher that should work just fine for her. 

When moving to a new home it is nice to have an easy Brita solution to at least one of our problems

There are enough challenges for the Sandwich Generation in normal times, even more when moving is added to the mix. It's nice to know that at least SOME of the new problems that may arise do have easy solutions, isn't it? 🙂 

How about you? Do you like your local water? If not, what solutions have you and your family come up with?
