Hi everyone. Well my husbands grandparents have moved in. So far, other than the addition not being completed, the only rant I have is about Granny. Anytime my 3 yr old makes sound, talking, singing, laughing, screaming, yelling.... She tells him to be quiet, in a mean sort of way. My kids have to be quiet all the time, because granny has headaches all the time. I know she cant control it, but, if my older son is loud she hasnt said anything to him. Now I may be projecting because my grandmother treated me like crap and my brother like a prince.
Yesterday we had the power go out, and after a while the grandparents went for a drive to help Granny breathe. As soon as they were out the door my boys were going nuts, I mean cuz they had all this energy built up ya know?
Right now I am on some meds that make it so Im not supposed to be out in the sun. We also live in Tuscon, AZ so we are at 105 for our highs, so that is one thing that makes it difficult to get out. The other is that if Grandpa isnt here, I have to stay here. Ok, Granny says I dont, but, what happens if she cant get up to go to the bathroom, or she falls or she needs her med etc. Heck when she is in the master bathroom (they are staying in our bedroom right now) and she hollers for someone in the bedroom, they cant hear her.
I guess Im partly getting ticked with my husband as well, because this week he is starting to go to two different martial art classes. One class meets Mon and Wed and the other meets Tus, Fri and Sunday.
The sad thing is... they have only been here for two weeks. I really need to save up money to go on a trip to see my family. DHs grandfather said that if I planned it for before he gets a job, he would watch the boys for me. Grandfather is much younger than Granny, so he isnt retired yet.
Granny is on Oxygen 24/7, she has diabetes, congestive heart failure, losing her hearing, and going blind and Im not sure what else. I know she has a bad hip, but cant have surgery because of the other stuff. I dont feel like I have anyone to talk to, well I coudl email my mom, but, does it always overwhelm you when you are first getting adjusted? I keep telling myself that it will be easier when the addition is done. I dont want to complain about this... I want to learn from it. I figure if I can handle this, then I can handle becoming a nurse, ya know? sigh...
