Thursday, I just knew this would happen....

     Hub's Uncle passed away early this morning.  He has been suffering from Alzheimer for a couple years now.  It is a blessing and we have been expecting it anytime now. But did I prepare for it?  No.  We will have another long car ride down to the Boise area next week and I am dreading it.  I loved Hub's Uncle he was a wonderful man.  I want to honor him, I just wish I was more ready to take off again.  
          Yesterday we  had the littles and I was still able to get 4 bridesmaid dresses sewn.  They are not pressed and they need straps put on from the hem scraps.  I have 4 more to do today plus a pile of alterations. I was called to take a meal into  another family that had a death, I threw together chicken enchiladas, jello(kids), and brownies. So yesterday was a zoo.  Hubs and I took a nice bike ride last night along the levy.  It was 104 here and the breeze off the river was great.  But then I came home and stayed up way too late watching Netflix.  Now I am tired I have a dirty house, and sewing that needs to be done.

     This would all be fine, except, we had agreed and I need to drive to Spokane tomorrow to get the stupid car that mom would not put in my name sold.  It took some effort and we finally got the local people to put it in my name as an heir, but now we can't get Washington to recognize this.  So I need to appear.  What a pain.  We were also supposed to look at land with our daughter and son-in-law up in the Northern part of Idaho where we want to build a small cabin for our family someday, hopefully sooner than later.  Now hub's must stay in town to help the same widow I took food into move on Saturday.  I don't know if I am ready to be gone 3 days next week.  I have brides on my tail.

     I guess what I am saying is  I have procrastinated the day of my repentance and now I have to really kick my butt into gear and my butt is so happy to sit and watch netflix.  I just want to take a nap and feel sorry for myself.  I want to whine and carry on and this is no ones fault but my own.  I do work well under pressure so the fact that I have to push myself is no problem.  You just have to hear about it :)  See how I roll?

     Crap, double crap, more crap......

I am off!

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  1. Oh my goodness I think you have personally had more than your share of grief. We always have said it happens in three's.
    Sorry for the long trips.
    I hope you get it all done and can finally get some much needed down time.

  2. I am sorry for loss of another relative as well as all the delays, twists, and turns your life is taking right now. I know there are thousands of things you need to catch up on and do just with your mom's passing and you are getting bombarded by tons of outside issues. I wish I could help.

  3. So sorry for another loss in your family. Add in all the extra stuff and this has been a tough year for you. One thing that amazes me though is that you roll with the punches and you get things done. I know that you will get through this as well. Good luck!

  7. Honestly, I could not live your life. I hope you get through all this. There has not been time to even grieve your Mom's death.

  12. You DO need a break my dear - you remind me of the Energizer Bunny and I think your batteries need replacing! I'm sorry about Uncle - your head must be spinning. On the bright side I just noticed all the RED on the side of your blog and realized that was all PAID OFF DEBT! Look at you go!
