Your mother doesn't have much money and she can, indeed, blow through it very quickly. I'm wondering, first of all, if she's a wee bit depressed -- she has reason to be. First, of course, your Dad's death. Then, it's difficult to work with a lot of younger people in a job where appearance is such an important aspect of the job. Put on top of that, the simple fact that it's probably more difficult physically for her to be on her feet all day.

excellent point.

"wee bit depressed" == 'grieving' /'scared' /???

there's a reason the books say, "don't do anything drastic while you're grieving"

...... and for anyone who says, "it's been a year, she should get over it", i've got a short 2x4 for them
