It's the fourth best day of the work week!
What's up, Wedding Woes?
My boss is finally back on the road, which means I got caught up on a ton of stuff yesterday. Hoping to dig through some more today. I'm even getting personal stuff done: we have a meeting set with a landscape architect, and I'm narrowing down the lawn people. I feel like She-Ra today.
(Except in flats.)
Family stuff going on. My grandmother is moving to assisted living, for good. We knew it was coming, but still. She's at the point where she requires more care than my aunt and uncle can provide, even with a nurse. (My grandma is so old that my aunt, her daughter, is 72 herself. It's getting hard for her to do everything my grandma needs.)
And FIL is going to be nearby in a couple of weeks, and wants to get together. DH was like "He's going to be near Raleigh, let's go up for the weekend and meet him." Um, no. DS has skills night that Friday, Wooz has riding and swim Saturday, DS has swim and soccer on Sunday. And we just redid the guest bedroom before my mom came to stay after her mastectomy, and it's awesome. There is no reason he can't stay with us.
I wasn't sure whose idea it was, so I asked him why FIL couldn't just come stay with us after whatever in Raleigh, and DH said--I kid you not--"I don't want him to see the backyard unfinished." Y'all, I love Mr. Heff, but A) he is a perfectionist, and nothing will ever be perfect enough for him, and
I'm not schlepping both kids and missing a whole weekend because the backyard isn't finished
. It then descended into a full round of daddy issues. And since we can't fix those with a drive to Raleigh, I say we stay put and deal.
