Question #1 will it ever quit snowing? Answer: NO!
Our weather here has been something else. It is treacherous to drive. My driveway is horrid and I swear all Hub's does is go outside and shovel snow. Poor guy he has a lot to take care off. It is hard to get mom out as she cannot manage the driveway.
We had a nice time with our daughter and grandsons. Baby is a little fatty and so cute. I loved their new house and really liked the lay out. All the bedrooms are up on the upper level. It is a much more functional house for them. Son-in-laws mom has her own suite and that makes it really nice for her. They are a lucky couple to have her.
The weather was dangerous and awful when we went down. We arrived at Hub's parents house and you guessed it, mom had squash, baked potatoes, and she had pulled steaks out to boil. ( not broil) Hub's and I had eaten something at our last stop so we could avoid the food trap. Now it was not healthy food, gas station food. But any thing is better than mother-in-laws cooking. The weather was so bad that daughter text us and said not to continue, they were shutting down her county. So now we had to at in-laws house. I insisted on broiling the steaks but did not want to eat. I WAS NOT HUNGRY. This woman's life depends on force feeding everyone around her. So finally we sit down to dinner, I cut a miniscule piece of steak and a small cube of squash, the baked potatoes are old mealy shrunken and cold. I cut the steak into the smallest pieces possible and tried to eat, but I was so full. Now she brings out ice cream and my stomach is upset and I thought a couple of tablespoons of ice cream might settle this, well wrong move. I no sooner had the spoon in my mouth than I had to run for the bathroom and I swear lost every bit of food I had eaten since Christmas. Dry heaved for over an hour. Collapsed on the bed. I was fine the next day but on the way back we stopped at this station and found out they had recalled the icing they used on their baked goods, it was making people sick. Lucky me!
The next morning she had this huge breakfast that I refused to eat. What about I just puked my guts out do you not get? When we were coming home we stopped to make sure they did not need anything and of course mom wants us to stay and eat. NO NO NO NO. But she has a roast in the crock pot. (You mean a piece of shoe leather with no flavor) She insists on making us sandwiches on her homemade cardboard ww bread. Also old broccoli starting to turn yellow and bittered is put in a bag and 4 oranges. Hub's is throwing oranges out as we go down the highway. I swear her while life centers around food. I love to eat but this is ridiculous.
My mother-in-law also informed Hub's that when Dad goes she would like to live with Hub's and I. She has three daughters, but the youngest has schizophrenia and is heavily medicated. Her older two have 6 kids apiece and each of those kids has 4-5 children and they all live very close. Which means the houses are full of many, many young kids. If the daughters even watch the children of two of the kids that can mean 8-10 kids at a time. Their houses are always filled with grandkids. Hub's mom can't handle the noise for very long and I can't blame her. It is one thing to be in your 60's and have many little ones but in you late 80's she really needs peace and quite. Great! I will have bitch wicked in the basement and a woman force feeding me un edible food on the main floor. That's it! Sluggy and I are taking off, Don't know where we are going but we are going some where.
Mom had a doctor's appointment last Monday and Lil sis took her as I was not home. Both Lil sis and I had sent letters into the doctor about mom's condition and behavior. He must have listened because he did a bunch of test and changed up her meds adding and anti depressant. She was mad and of course it is our fault but I am making sure she takes her meds. Lil sis and I are going to go through everything and help her with this. She won't want the help and insist that she can take care of herself, but she cannot. Doctor told her under no circumstances was she to drive. Her A-fib could knock her out at any time. I hope this is a blessing. I would love to get rid of her car.
I am trying some new things to try and beat my depression. The weather is not helping, but I have to do something. More on this later.
Have a great and productive day!
