We all need a vent once in a while. Feel free to add yours in the comments section; you can be assured of my sympathy and fellowship.
Last Monday night we got back from skiing. On Tuesday we went to a funeral; since my in-laws are Italian, it was an all-day affair.
Wednesday I got to go and stand in line in the DMV to get my license renewed. So, that was a blast.
On Thursday I finally had some time to catch up with my sequel to The Night Watchman that I'm writing, as well as copious emails and reviews and edits that I had to do. In the middle of all that, I got a call from a hospice nurse that my mother, who has Alzheimer's, was in a very bad way, and I should "prepare myself for the worst."
It's hard to work after hearing that; later my sister went to visit mom at the assisted living place where she lives. Mom was FINE.
On Friday my mom's house sold --- maybe??? Don't know; I'm still waiting for a call from the real estate agent. That whole thing required loads of faxing and emailing.
Over the weekend, I went to see mom, took my daughter to Girlscout Camp for sign up as well as a birthday party, and snuck off to Target to buy a gift for that birthday party. Because, I had forgotten all about the birthday until a friend called my to carpool.
What am I forgetting? Right - laundry, cleaning, cooking, and raising a six year old. Well, today I get to relax, at least - in the dentist's chair, getting a crown.
PS - My ski bag is still packed, sitting where I dumped it a week ago.
