Hope you all had a wonderful day.
After the Santa presents and breakfast, the boys started getting ready to go with X for the next couple of days. It wasn’t exactly in my plan but it makes sense that they’ll be staying with him tonight. But DS1 was still in the shower at 11:00 and I had to leave with the three of them still there because I told Z&A I’d drive them to the airport.
When I got home, Libby the Wonder Poodle and I sat around and ate a little, had a little Christmas screwdriver, watched “White Christmas” and “Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix” and read up on a few of you. I’m saving the rest for work tomorrow, because it’s going to be S.L.O.W.
I called Mr. Hockey at 10:15 and wished him and his family Merry Christmas. We didn’t talk very long because he was in the middle of putting his kids to bed and I could tell he was using his “I’m in front of the kids” voice.
I’m feeling a little under the weather. Nothing different from what I’ve felt for the last several months, so I’m assuming the procedure on Thursday will make a huge improvement.
Speaking of Thursday, Sr. N called tonight around 8. Seems her last aunt died on Sunday night. Her funeral is Thursday in Chicago. This is the last relative of that generation on both her mom’s and dad’s side of the family, so it’s hitting pretty hard as ‘the orphan’ thing. She was crying off an on, both from grief at her aunt’s death and also because she was feeling conflicted about leaving me to find a new ride to the hospital.
I really knew what it was I was supposed to be learning about this whole freaking adventure with the transportation thing. I’ve asked pretty much everyone I can about helping me out. I’m trying my damnedest not to “go it alone” which can be a pattern I fall into. And every single person I have asked has said “Of course!” they would help me out. “But….”
They’re out of town. Or family is in town.
Who am I supposed to ask next? And what is the lesson?
All I know right now is that I feel a little lonely and getting ready to fall back into my “go to” position and call a freaking cab.
Anyway. I hope you all had a lovely day.
