She e-mailed husband and asked, in her mother in law way. If we would mind, if it wouldn't be to much... after they are here for 2 weeks. (They are showing up today). If we could help watch Grandpa, husband's Grandpa for 2 weeks until they come back!!! So they would all be here for 2 weeks, me cooking a lot, and then leave him here for 2 weeks, then they come back for who knows how long! Ummm, what. Doesn't ask husband's brother, who has no kids, because he will not do it. Says, "I don't want to put you out, but he really wants to stay" He can barely walk and should not drive... she will fill her house with food for him. We just need to check on him. Ummm, I can't do that. He can barely walk 10 feet without being in pain. Their house is about 10 minutes from ours. husband told her about N's apts and that there might be more... she made some comment about, us over reacting. So now she is looking into, maybe his Sister coming in from Tempe to help? But that is a huge maybe. So now we will not know for a week or so. I realize mother in law needs a break, but to put all of this on husband is kind of cr@ppy. We will have to basically take care of him. mother in law is with him almost everyday all day. Or he is at her house. If we did not have 2 messed kids, I would happily do this, plus he is grumpy, can't hear... I will do it and try to be pleasant and not let her know she is not giving husband a choice. husband's brother said he might help. Take him to lunch or something. But mother in law is afraid to ask brother in law... She might guilt out after seeing how bad the kids are. But she is just afraid to tell Daddy No. Bottom line. Ugh, thanks for letting me vent.
