Yesterday I had posted an entry here, went back to reread it and thought it sounded a bit disjointed so henceforth it is now deleted. We went last night to visit FIL in the hospital. He was asleep the entire time but it appeared that the swelling in his face has gone down. There were plenty of other relatives there, too. We all took our turns visiting where only two are allowed in at a time. SIL2 was trying to set up a schedule for visitation which didn’t fly well with hubby. Amazingly enough we all seem to manage without her instructions.
I have had a small vacation planned now to visit family in Ohio. Tomorrow I’m slated to leave for there and it really has been the furthest from my mind. I asked hubby last night if he was okay with my going still. He said he was fine with it and that I should still go where it has been almost a year since I’ve seen any of them. I told him that I would be on the first flight back if he needed anything. I still am having misgivings about going but my sister is having major surgery the day after I leave that will keep her laid up for a while so I’d like to see her still.
Yesterday I received somewhat of what appeared to be a rather passive-agressive email from someone I deal with at work. Rather than let it slide I wrote back and asked if there was anything he needed to discuss with me. I’d rather nip this in the bud now than let this perpetuate. He wrote back and was suddenly all business. I returned the reply and said if there is anything you feel you ever need to discuss with me then please feel free to reach out. Did I mention his manager was copied on this too? Today I came in and the manager’s response back to me was, “You’re amazing. Do you work your husband over this way too?” Not sure why my husband needed to be dragged into it but since she was asking I replied, “Yes, actually. I find it maintains the peace at home.”
Looks like my latent smart-ass gene is finally starting to show, eh?
Weatherwise it is just plain hot here. When the sky turns white in the morning you know that we are in for a scorcher. The temp on my computer reads 110 although I suspect it is probably a few degrees higher than that. Hubby’s family from Texas are coming in this weekend and I believe they are staying at our house. In part of FIL’s delirium he had mentioned a few family members he hadn’t seen in years. While some are no longer with us, the few remaining members were contacted and they are travelling out. I hope they don’t mind the temps here.
I am really very behind on catching up with blogs but promise to shortly. I was checking out my stats the other day and saw that someone found my blog by searching on ‘chocolate massage’. LOL. Now doesn’t that sound nice? Another day someone searched on ‘Christmas wire shoes’. Oh, I can only imagine! If anyone knows what those are then do tell!
Well, I suppose I should leave off here and start getting things packed for tomorrow. Hopefully I’ll remember everything I need to bring because my head has just been elsewhere. Ohm, ohm, ohm. 😉
