My husband and I have decided to downsize from our current 3 bedroom 2 bath rental down to a one bed room cottage. We are moving out to the boonies away from civilization to an off grid living arrangment in order to meet a savings goal for a down payment on a future property. Mom who lives with us, and has a history of moving out and back in, out and back in, and we went to great lengths to fly thousands of miles away to set her up in an assissted living fasc (because my brother and SIL neglected care), then went to great lengths to find a suitable place to house her when she wanted to move back ---is moving back out to go live with my brother and SIL again. The reason for her leaving the island is due to specialists moving away and closing their practices this year (Maui) and her having difficulty finding care. I don't blame her because she NEEDS care... and I've had to talk to her and my brother and SIL about establishing some boundaries to make her care a PRIORITY. Because it sounds like my brother and SIL are more interested in moving her out there for baby sitting duties (putting her to work).
But I'm also stressed out at our own move, and hers in addition, I have chronic pain and have to pace everything, but also at the fact that she doesn't seem to care how much we bend over backwards for her. She doesn't notice the efforts we make. Everytime she wants something done / changes her mind again, she expects people to drop what they're doing and make it happen for her. Also, my husband's parents are flying in for a 3 week vacation (staying with us) right smack in the middle of our move. I just wanted to come vent here. Thanks.
Good morning!We had power outage till about 20 minutes ago. Same. Stupid. Transformer. Every. Damn. Time. Ugh, just do it right so we can get through *one* monthw ithout that zap-bang-zzzzt, y'know? Oh well.***Pitcher-type Trumpet vine flowers eat bugs. The bugs are lured in by the scent/sweet, and then.. well, they don't get out again. Sort of automatic perimeter pest control in a weird creepy...
Leaving in half hour for my brain nerve block have to go to Marquette for it 2 hours away. I am terrified I am glad my nurse friend is taking me because she understands it more and will be able to keep me calmer. I will check in thru my phone when able. Long ride there and back meaning i will have fluid on my legs when i get home :( I am in awful pain this morning too.
