Well, its been a while since I last wrote. Its not like anyone really noticed or anything, but I thought I'd stop in and update it just in case I have any readers.
Well, thanksgiving i had 6 people in my house including me and my husband. That lasted for about a week. That was a crazy week. I don't really remember details or anything. I should have written about it right after, but it went well. That week, I enjoyed my grandparents more than I have in my entire life. They were completely sweet and understanding, generous and loving. Which has never been a way I could describe my grandparents. They have always been rather abrupt, not so understanding, not generous to me EVER, and I'm sure they have always loved in their conditional love kind of way. But at thanksgiving, they were everything they have never been.
Four days before Christmas there were 5 people in the house.....then Christmas was 11 people in my home, including hubby and me, for 5 days. Then 10 people for 7 days. It was a wild 2 weeks. I went to Walmart I think more than 15 times in the 2 weeks. I went to Kroger about 10 times if not more. I went to cvs like 5 times. I'm TOTALLY tired and worn out. I can't even remember how many items I had to return for my grandmother. I'm probably not supposed to tell all the OCD things that happened while family was here. But let me tell you, in the 2 weeks family was here, I could probably write a novel from all the craziness.
I enjoyed the family being here even with the stresses. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED having my brother and his family here and my momma. I love watching the 3 kids interact with my mom. Those children love my mother more and more and they bring my mom to life more than anything/anyone else has/can. I love spending time with my 2 nephews and my niece. They are wonderful children. I adore my sister-in-law. I loved spending time cooking and talking with her. I was glad that my brother and my husband (who were friends before my marriage) got to go out and spend time together. I even got to steal a few minutes with my brother as well. I love the man my brother has turned into.
We all took turns being sick, and I'm still on my turn. I don't know who started it, but I feel horrible. I think its a sinus infection, and my ears are killing me too.
My aunt is living next door since thanksgiving, but hasn't really been there since then....she's staying with her boyfriend. But she's now been next door for 2 days, and she's got no tv and her computer is riddled with viruses, so she's got nothing to do over there for entertainment....so she's trying to stay over here with me since I have tv and internet. I'm trying to be understanding, but right now, I just wanna be alone and stay in bed all day and night.
I've been looking forward to my husband coming home tonight since we have the house alone, but he just called me and told me he's not sure he will be able to come home until around midnight since someone at work had a death in his family and the other guy won't do runs in the van cause he's an idiot. He won't go the speed limit and drives like he's a nascar driver or something stupid like that, he gets a ticket everytime he does a run. So now my husband is working double time trying to get everything done today that he usually has all week to do. I'm not a happy camper. He's coming home, but just not sure when. I know he's actually at work, this is the craziest time of year, but i'm menopausal, and missing my husband and sicker than sick and just want my love home.
I'm so tired and hurt all over and just want what i want and i can't have what i want right now so i'm trying not to cry so i don't have more problems breathing, but crying is all i feel like doing right now.
