Long post, here, guys, sorry🫣

Fri, Oct 20, 2023

AM- had a lousy night of sleep for several reasons. A crazy loud vehicle roared down our street around 2:30am and kept the dog up as it rumbled around the area. Husb heard nothing, as he was keeping me awake already with weird left sided seizure-ish petit mals every 10-15 seconds for nearly an hour before the roaring vehicle occurred. Once I woke him up about the vehicle, then Canoe’s barking kept him up, HE didn’t sleep any more, but I did. Our new dishwasher is due to arrive today around noon, so he will prolly go to sleep until that time.

Anyway, I went back to sleep and woke up finally at nearly 7am….I’m exhausted.

We have more mother-in-law fun coming this weekend. She (sorta) wants to come visit (the 5 hour trip)to see the apartment we have set up for her to live. So, husb is going over Sat to bring her back here on Sun. If, when he gets there and she has changed her mind again, he will leave without her on Sun. I think….so much uncertainty…makes me SO anxious.

Husb and his mom arrived in time for her to see around the place before dark, and to have dinner. She needs complete guidance each time she moves around, because she cannot remember what was said about where she is. She hasn’t left her home for out of town visits in 17 years. Hasn’t been to our house, specifically, since we were married in 2002….21 years😵‍💫

Am- woke up at 6:30 to rain and wind after sleeping just okay. The visit to my mother in law’s yesterday was hard, but okay. She did her best to focus on the task of grocery shopping, so we got her stocked up. She’s got enough for at least a month. She told my husb she should be okay for a week😵‍💫
Daughter is on her 3rd day of Trauma Intervention Program training for an all day session today. Granddaughter will be sleeping til noon. An attic inspector will be showing up this morning here at daughter’s condo for annual check for mold/rot.

AM- Daylight Savings Time has ended, so there was an hour more of sleep. My left hip told me it was time to get up at what my phone said was 5:30am, which I complained was TOO EARLY. When I looked at the analog clock which said it was 6:30, the time change dawned on me.🙄.must be getting old, can’t keep up😵‍💫

AM- awake and up at 6:30am (PST) to NO RAIN, a bit of fog, and 42 (F) degrees feels like 40. It gets mostly light by 7am since the time change. For now. We are definitely heading to the dark side of the year😫
Granddaughter thinking she is still not right but also seems way more animated than yesterday. It’s a late start day and if she’s not going to school, she’s gotta stay off media and skip the dance tonight.

AM- trouble getting to sleep after my light was out. The girls were giggling and it kept startling me🥴😓. So I woke up at 6:30 when my white noise stopped. It’s foggy again, and 40ish (F)degrees outside.

AM- awake and up shortly after 6am (PST) after a late night, but solid sleep. Today, my daughter has a ton of running around for me to do, ferrying granddaughter to all the things (activities) on the menu, while daughter is at her own training program. Today is also my husb’s 66th birthday, for which I plan to FaceTime with him for a while between bouts of ferrying.
