Have you seen Saturday Night Live's version of Sarah vs Hillary?
(smothered laughter here)
I ache. All over. Hands. Bod. Spent the weekend on the roof, pretty much...made some progress on the house, and one side of the garage is almost done with shingling. Husband and I had a long talk last night -- when he admitted he wanted to finish this job before the snow flew, he finally said, "Guess I should call Ken -- (the local handyman specialist) and see if he can help."
It means more $$ spent...but I would enjoy not having aching hands all the time.
Husband's uncle died this morning -- funeral's in Trenton, MO on Thursday. I loved Uncle Bill just as much as Dave did -- he was a cantankerous, opinionated guy, but treated us both with much love. (And he was Dave's mom's little brother...which means even more now that Mom has been gone for more than three years.)
My folks are still visiting here, planning to stay through next Monday. (My 50th b-day is a week away.) My dad's health has stabilized some, but any extra effort causes him pain, and his face goes gray. (I dread his having to make the trip back to Michigan.) We planned to do more work on the roof this week...and Husband was going to a men's retreat this weekend. Well, ha. So much for that.
One of us has to go -- no matter what. Husband definitely should. I want to, as well. But what about my folks? They say go -- they'll stay and take care of the dogs. I don't think this is right. Do we boot them out early? Do I just not celebrate a birthday this year? (Not that I would mind it that much...) What about the roof? The business stuff that needs to get done?
Do I even have a brain to think with?
