Well, as expected, Mom was not happy with the comforter, shams, curtains, valances purchase. The blue won’t work. That room is already beautiful.
And yes, as expected, I returned all four hundred something dollars of it yesterday after church and after taking her out to eat.
And yes, as you gathered, I have not had a weekend.
My laundry is not finished. I had to wear jeans to church (it didn’t hurt my feelings), because I had no long pants to wear.
I had to return her things yesterday because I wanted it out of my way where I didn’t have to worry about trying to work it into the work week, fear of losing the receipt, or someone stealing the stuff out of my car and I was NOT wagging that in the house and out to the car again. I’ve wagged it out of the store, into her house, into my car, and now into the store. I’m not a spring chicken anymore.
Sometimes I just want to hang my head and cry.
Sometimes I think God is punishing me. But then I know He loves me. So maybe:
- He wants me to learn something or be refined by it.
- He might be using me as a tool for someone/something else
- He might be showing me a part of life He wants me to avoid.
- Increasing my awareness to protect my heart or my faith.
So I really just have to trust that He knows what He’s doing.
So Fancy is coughing a lot, sleeping a lot. She is starting to be miserable but she still has some moments of joy. Her trim went well. I didn’t make another appointment but Mom wants me to make another just in case. So I’ll do that today.
I’ll also call the bank today and check on what we need to do to add me to the account where I can pay her bills on my computer. George said all she had to do was give me the password, but I think I have to be set up – especially if there is 3rd party authentication. I’ll need to be able to have my email/phone connected to it also so it needs to be proper.
I’m just a basket case when I don’t get my weekend reset going. I’m cranky, mad, and feel abused, lol! REALLY I do.
Ok, well, this week I have a dentist appointment Thursday. And George’s colonoscopy on Friday. So it’s a short week for me. That did give me some consolation. I just moved all of my to do items to this next weekend. Bless its heart, it is going to be a busy one. I have so much lined up to accomplish. With Easter Weekend, Life Group weekend and then NO weekend – I’ve pushed so much to this upcoming weekend. I may go MIA!
Katy called yesterday and we trying to work on our June trip. It may turn into July and that is not a good month for me because of quarter end. But then Katy can’t in Aug because of school. So I don’t know what to do. It’s expensive to figure out a way to see them – for both ends – this living so far apart. George would not let us book anything until after his colonoscopy. Which has me a bit concerned. He says he is not worried, but best to hold off. :-O
Anyway, pray for us all – George, Mom, me, my family, retirement. This is just all so hard. I have been looking at houses in Texas when I get in a bad mood. I signed up for Zillow. It’s looking like Weatherford is going to be the best place for us to be. It’s about an hour away I think but there’s no good real estate for sale anywhere else and it’s too far from good medical care. Anyway, gotta go to work!
