Been playing

Decided to go visit mom, my youngest sis and my brother this week.  It was great!  Just got home.

Here's the funny thing. Every time I leave, hubby has something go wrong.  This week, he had the flu and a temp of 102.  He wasn't sick when I left, wasn't sick when I got home, but claims that while I was gone, he was sick.

And something like this happens every single time I'm gone.  So I need to start keeping a record of it here.

Personally, I think he is trying to manipulate me, make me feel bad and make me want to stay home.  Probably not going to happen.  I'm off to see my other 2 sisters next week. I sure wish we all lived in the same location, but we don't.  2 hours one way this week, 3 hours another way next week.  The good thing is that I am getting out more and more, seeing them more.  I just love it!

Today I also saw my son's other grandmother.  She is 80 and in a nursing home close to my mom.  It was so sad.  She is so weak, on oxygen, in a wheelchair, looks absolutely worn out and I just kept thinking that I cannot let myself ever get into that condition. Granted she has had 2 strokes, bypass surgery and is diabetic.  But I would rather die than be where she is.  So a good example, a good eye-opener that I need to do whatever it takes to get and keep my health.

And yes, I'll be painting another wall this weekend!
