After I get done with dad. I promise myself and my adult children that I will not make them feel the way my parents have and still do at 55 years old. I know from counselling that it is my feelings and the way I interpet them, but there is strong validity for it. We bought a new to us truck which will give us use of our trailer again and some time to get away now that I am off work. This also saves us the 3,000 to put it seasonal and drive to it, as we won't be using it a lot and is only 50 a month to put it where we can get it anytime. He is going to question our minds, tell us we are stupid, think we used his money( which is what bothers me most as we didn't touch it and also this is 32 $ more a month and our bills are paid) I know it is not his biz. but they have both always made it theirs. I am using dads money for renos for the house so he can move in with us - his wishes. and he constantly says it is your money anyway I am always very mindful to say I will never take your money etc. (yes when he is gone it is mine and I would rather he knew what I did with it and he agreed )and even when we got the taps for the new baathroom half price I called and told him about it. So till this is done I have been on edge. First the house I wanted then this.
After I go in the sauna, hubby gets up and I shower, we are getting a few groceries, dad needs some too, so will get those for him and then go talk to him. DD and I went over yesterday adn did his dishes and tidyed up. He got home as we were leaving and was walking from his car and had to hang onto me for balance and for a min I thought he was not sure where he was and also was going to topple on me. So high time we get this reno underway... Monday is start day. I know it will be a slower process than I want as hubby said only so much I can do a day...
Now on to today, going to sauna, shower and get some groceries, go to dads and also change his sheets while there, maybe go to dd, maybe drive her to daughter in laws, then do whatever we want which I am sure will entail a drive in the truck. I am loving that it has heated back and butt warmers, makes my back feel so good.
Yoga sunday!!! missed it for the past month can't wait to get back to it.
Okay off to sauna!

I don't have a whole foods near me, I don't even know if they are in my country, but know that my local grocery stores are probably no better.
eye opener anyway.
I read on here so many that shop and love that store so just putting it out there - from another blogger. I just find it interesting that the govt is presumed HAHA to be there to take charge but it all comes down to the almighty dollar............

Okay, after a mini major meltdown yesterday and eve, with moods and feelings all over the board, I went to bed sad, dejected and just blah. Hubby came up and said you are going to cry again, don't feel so bad, we were staying here and have great ideas and plans you like doing this stuff and our mortgage isn't up for renewal for 2.5 years anyway. This will work, and you know we will decide in 3-5 years from now... So I said yes and we talked, discussed, cuddled, I cried some more and it so often comes down to I want mum. So yes we are staying and I am not even going to think of looking. We start renos here Monday. Hubby said I said first week of feb. and I want this weekend to have off and monday we will start by moving rest of stuff upstairs to new workout room and then pull some carpet out.
I called the realtor back and she said well it is subject to the sale of a condo in Portland hills which is super $$$$. I did think OH! then said NO don't get excited.. I told her if it went up when we were ready, then I would call her. Of course she wanted to have my info said no, we are not ready to even list. So have onone bothering us and today I will go buy the paint for the kitchen so I feel as if I have a project too.
I am "starting over" again too. One cos my back made me stop the exercise valid but still, even not being able to stretch made it all impossible. My back still catches when I put my socks on but much better now. and two cos I have eaten well still, but last eve for supper we had a can of stew. ew processed and didnt taste anything as good as my homemade. I had a cup of hot choc. too watered down but ew. So back to thinking good about this house, eating clean and not adding extra stress that we don't need.
Meeting dad at the bank ( stress enough!!!) in half hr. He is moving an act so all are at same bank and thinks I have to sign, well probably not but he wants moral support. Mum did all banking stuff, he gets very anxious then gruff.
I wanted to get dd counter and sink in, that is all that is left at her place, hubby said I will do it, but want to start here. I do too but want to know hers is done! oh well that's okay it will be done, sooner than later.
Now off to brush my teeth and get the spinach out of them! LOL
Hope all of you have a good day and don't give yourself added stress.
BTW my smoothie tasted great!
HUGS for me!!!
