I have tried to take her places for entertainment and just to get out of the house. Here's my big problem, all she wants to do is get a boyfriend or go shopping. In her hay day she had tons of men whenever she wanted and she also had plenty of money to buy tons and tons of junk. Well, we are barely getting by financially so therefore shopping is out! I'm sorry, I'm not taking her to bars to pick up men. Any suggestions of activities out there for her. She doesn't have any lady friends. I had suggested the zoo, museums, downtown Chicago, she just sneered and turned up her nose. She can't let go of the past and move forward, she can only say how depressed and miserable she is. What is there to do on a shoe string budget?
