Yes, it is. After she has the hip replaced I'll have more that she can do. She was washing dishes until she fell in July. Actually, that was what she was doing when she fell. I hope that once she has the hip replace that she'll be able to do more cooking and washing dishes. It will make her feel better, as you say. Also, I've got her a Chinese checkers game for Christmas. I'm beyond sick of Yahtzee, so I'm not playing much with her. Having something else to play will be good.
