The Deck is painted and it is not perfect but it is livable. It looks much nicer and I am going to be happy with it. It was hot, boring hard, crappy work, but it is done. The deck really needs replacing and I am not about to put any more time or money into it. The next time will be to replace the darn thing. Unless mom passes and we sell this over sized house we live in and go on a Mission some where.
I get to meet Sluggy and her husband in less than a week and I am so excited. We will have such fun. But first I might have to sober her up. Have you seen her latest post? Love that woman.
Mom continues to mend physically but emotionally she is a bear. We actually talked last night about her going to live in a home. She does not want to, but her behavior toward me is so bad that I am at the point of doing this. If she is that unhappy living with me she needs to find a better place and I will help her.
She kept bringing up my younger brother last night as it was his 50th birthday. She was mad at us girls because we did not fuss about it. Actually she did not remember it and then did not even know the day. We are not close to our brothers mostly due to her behavior. She created the mess and now has to live with it. My younger brother is such a user. He does not work, except at a DJ job on the weekends. He is to old to be a DJ. He plays fantasy video games, has never bought a car. He gets mom's old/new ones or she buys them for him. She feels sorry for his 4 living children as he is such and poor parent. So we are supposed to feel bad for him also and allow her to waste what little is left of her money that she might need to live in a home on this ungrateful leech.
So last night after a wonderful day with my Lil sis, mom cried and nagged and slammed doors and accused me of awful things. I stood my ground but my feelings were really hurt. She wants to go to a counselor and I said I would be glad to go with her. Her reply was " yes, so you can rip me up for what I have done." My reply was, "Mom behavior has consequences." She slammed the door in my face. Oh, my bad. Then an hour later as I sewed and ignored her, she calls for me to come run my fingers threw her hair and help her sleep. Anything to calm her down. She was on the rampage from about 8:30 last night until 2 in the morning. I finally got her to sleep and then I could not sleep until after 3 as I was so upset. I just prayed and prayed to find some guidance.
Yesterday I was so busy. I thought Lil Sis would show up about noon and she was here at 10. So I did not get to blog. Lil sis was a beautition in early life, before she became a high rolling business exec. She is very talented with hair. She always looks perfect. Well not yesterday. I should have taken her picture yesterday. Anyway, I have not had my hair colored professionally for a year now. It is way too long and is so bleached out from the sun and time. I am totally grey and have been since my late 20's. It is so expensive to have your hair maintained and I am too cheap to do it more than once or twice a year. So Lil sis and I went to the beauty supply and got every thing we needed and she colored and cut my hair. It is beautiful. Cost $35.00 for supplies. I have enough tings left over to color many more times. I am so grateful. Then she stated and we finished painting the deck. She is a good fast painter and I am terrible at painting.
By the way I was able to get $300 more into savings on Wednesday afternoon. So I am on track for my savings goal.
I did not get to my sewing until after 9 last night and I still have not hemmed a wedding dress with 8 layer that needs to go out. I also have one that I have ripped that needs to be taken in and steamed. I must do them today. I also want to do a lot of cut back around the pond and I have so much clean up to do out front. Does it ever end? No says a loud voice from the sky, it never does.
Have a great and productive day. Thanks for listening or reading and encouraging me. I really need it right now.
