Dear Abby: Aging caregiver must seek out respite time for herself

Dear Abby: How can I convince my aging, sick sister-in-law that her feeble husband’s care is too much for her at this point?

I have tried telling her she deserves respite care of some kind, to no avail.

Chicken Stir-Fry is a weekday winner

A stir-fry is an easy go-to dinner. To stir-fry means to cook foods quickly in a small amount of oil over high heat. The only real work and time is in chopping and slicing the ingredients. The spicy peanut sauce is the highlight of in today’s recipe with its mix of crushed red pepper and gingerroot. Adjust the sauce to your own taste. Serving the stir-fry on whole wheat angel hair pasta is a nutrition boost, providing 4 grams of fiber per serving.

Dear Abby: Illusion of perfect marriage is shattered by man’s discovery

Dear Abby: I always thought that “Lana,” my wife of 14 years, and I had the perfect marriage. When I discovered she was having an affair, it hit me like a train wreck. After many weeks of trying to discover who she really is, I found out she has had several affairs throughout our marriage.
