I can't believe it is after 6 PM already. Another day flying past.
Lori- Sorry you were tossing and turning. I hate nights like that. Hopefully tonight will be much better!
Trig- Wow you really are going to be tightening things up. No doubt it will work for you.
Jaz- When will be going to see your Mom and for how long?
Nice that you are getting such warm beach weather. That is fab!
Did I tell you guys that we had to toss everything in the deep freezer? DH didn't check on it, even with my reminders, during a few windy days. If the power blips, it will throw the breaker. So, the deep freezer is empty and defrosted. Sigh. So much fun to start replacing things when the meat costs are sky high! I'll look for some sales.
Today I heard from all the kids- Actually DD and I ran some errands today, which was fun. I mean, the errands weren't that fun- mostly mailing packages etc- but it was nice to see her and hang out some. It had been since Thanksgiving that I saw her!
DS23 called me a couple of times about work stuff- a party thing, and NY is sort of shutting down a bit so he is going to be working virtually into Mid January at least.
DS19 has been checking in bc he is completing his Finals and closing out his semester. His grades are good- not great, not bad. I think overall he should have around a B average, maybe a touch higher if his school does +'s.
I think he is coming home tomorrow or Friday.
Jaz- yes, all kids will be home. DS23 from the 24th to the 1st or 2nd. DS19 from any day now until the new year, unless he decides to go back to his apartment for a while. DD and SoIL of course are already in and out.
We have some fun stuff planned.
So I am frustrated with my Mom, frustrated with her husband etc. My mom because she doesn't give her cell number to therapists, and then when I give it to them (because they call me bc they can't reach her) then she tends to not answer. So I am playing middle man to trying to get her home therapies set up from her fall. And THEN I asked her if she got the Save the Date card for DS23's wedding- No. My Christmas card? No. Well, either her husband isn't giving them to her, or he is just setting them down somewhere and she isn't receiving them. I mean, WTH?? How hard is it to put something in someone's chair, or on their side of the bed? Now granted, the home they share is a mess and a good part of that is on my Mom, but they can't work out SOME kind of system? Or if you notice that someone is clearly not opening their mail, maybe you call their attention to it?
I don't know, I just think it is really, really weird. He has three sons, and has almost no contact whatsoever with them. His family relationships are clearly very fractured. So is he consciously or unconsciously undermining hers? But on the flip side, I am also just frustrated with the endless helplessness and victimization with which she goes through life, so who knows. She doesn't do anything for herself at all, so maybe he is doing something and maybe he isn't.
Anyway. ERGH. I mean it's not like things would be better if she were NOT with him, I'm sure they'd be worse. So, whatever. It is just aggravating as F to send cards, or a gift or whatnot and it's like sending it into the ether.
Ok, gonna step out, getting ALL up in my self! lol
