Last Wednesday my stepdaughter’s mother died and my other stepdaughters father- in- law died. Both of them were in their mid fifties. Yikes! Very sad for the family. I was not close to either one but still feel bad for my stepdaughters. And on the same day our little Mabel was born.
It’s Saturday and Mike is back in his office working for a while. He works a little bit on weekend mornings and from 9 to 6 or 7 on weekdays although he has to edit and approve the front page of the next day’s paper every night between 9-11. It seems like it never ends. I doubt he’ll ever retire now that his big boss has retired…… And he wants to blame the pandemic but he never wants to do anything or go anywhere. Just wants to work, eat dinner in front of the TV at night, fall asleep alone watching TV and do it all over the next day. I feel so stifled and claustrophobic and he doesn’t listen or care at all…..
Monday I’m going to visit my new grandbaby, Mabel, and spend time with family. I get a little break.
