Sorry I haven't been around much. We worked right through yesterday and most nights my fingers/hands/wrists are too sore to type. After work yesterday I left for a doctor appointment (where they drew a ton of blood and did x-rays-just looking to see if I have rheumatoid arthritis) and then left with-easy child/difficult child to drive to Green Bay to pick up my mom. This morning we drove back home. Tensions are at an all time high. difficult child is, of course, off the charts right now due to it being almost Christmas (thank goodness I didn't decorate earlier than last week) and my mom (we found out about a week ago) has vascular dementia. I'm sure difficult child is going to do something to upset her (although so far she is taking him in stride). husband is super stressed because difficult child has had him up since 4:00 (yesterday he had us up at 4:30) and he was trying to get all the cleaning done before my mom got here. easy child/difficult child is total difficult child when dealing with difficult child right now. Wish I was escaping to some Island!!!!! Thanks for listening, it helps to get it out.
