Anyone remember the Muppet Show segment about Rowlf the dog trying to get the cat to leave and it kept coming back? Something exploded during the segment.
(the Muppet version of the song)
And the cat came back
He wouldn't stay away
He was sitting on the porch the very next day
The cat came back
He didn't want to roam
The next day it was home, sweet home!
My pounds are like that.
I ask them to leave, they do, then they come back.
I gave away my "fat" dress pants and other clothes to charity last week. First because they were way too big last time I wore them and secondly, since my life has changed so much, when was I going to dress up? The clothes had sat in a bag for months.
I'm on my way to a funeral this morning, driving 2 hours one way, in a snow storm, in clothes that are too tight!
To go to the funeral of my brother's father in law of 30 years. Pop enjoyed 92 years and fell asleep in his favorite chair and never woke up. To be with people I haven't seen in 4 or 5 years. Without DH and needing to explain over and over what happened. This will be a most awkward day and I am there 100% to help my bro.
His divorce was supposed to be finalized next Tuesday!
DH is doing very well in his PT sessions. He was able to lift his own foot over the side of the pool this week. They've set him up for land exercises. While he was lying on the table, trying to do leg lifts, he decided he needed to hold my hand and got all smiley and schmoosy; telling me how wonderful I was. Don't make me cry, bud!
SIL2 is DH sitting so I can go and will helping the nurse with the weekly treatments. DD2 is working, missing the fun. SIL2 loves to eat and I am enjoying feeding him. He had his first "Philly" cheesesteak last night, along with a NJ Italian hot dog. I hadn't been to the deli since last year and the first thing the cook asked when he saw me was where was DH? Hand over heart he told me to bring him in no matter what. I almost cried.
SIL declared he has to take me some place for a "proper" fish and chips today. The last thing I need is fried foods!
DD1 is advised to NOT go into labor while I'm gone although I will be home in time to watch the kids if she does. SIL2 volunteered to stay with me if it happens as I'll be a bit tired.
Great, what a sleepover that would be!
SIL1 is having a few of his own meltdowns. He's dealing with DD1, got a promotion at work and has to take care of the two boys and all the household stuff. He doesn't know how to ask for help (either) and I keep trying to do little things for them.
This week I had some health issues that need followed up and timing stuff is becoming annoying with all DH's and DD1's stuff. Neither SIL2 nor DD2 drive so, no help there. But, they can "baby" sit if I can schedule things around their work hours.
AND, I bought cookies.
Do you think I'm finally going to have that good cry?
