This morning I wanted to stay in my warm bed but the dog w anted to go out.
So I was up at 745 and trying to get dressed when the door bell rang. I was not in a state of dress to meet anyone but had to throw on my robe and zip it up before racing down the steps.
It was the guys who were to insulate by sunroom. Told them to go around the back. I then called my other contractor to let him know they were there.
Before I could get back upstairs to get dressed, they needed me again just to say it was going to take an hour and then they would give me the invoice and collect my check.
Finally get upstairs and gets dressed and my other contractor calls to ask me to let him in the side door so he can check on their work.
They finish but anow can't find the invoice and I will not write a check even though I was given an amount a few days ago by my contractor.
I needed to go into Greenville knowing there was a chance that the carpet guys MIGHT come by. They were supposed to call to say they were on the way and of course did not. I was standing in Lowe's 18 miles away when my son calls to say they are at the house. I was pissed because they called while they stood in front of my house saying they were there instead of calling first to say they were on the way. Then he tells me that I need to get it I professionally cleaned with hot water and he does not comprehend that even after professionally cleaned in Oct, the stains continue to come back. Finally I tell him that his
company can't grasp what I am saying and that I would like a carpet rep to come out.
So he leaves and I purchase hubby's gift and then off to the next store. I just park, get out the car, putting my keys in my coat pocket when the lady from the store calls me on my cell and starts this all over again. I am starting to sweat, remove my coat, throwing it in the backseat and close the door and shop in the store.
I come out and it now hits me, I locked my keys in the car. Damn it and of course the only other key is in PA with hubby.
Tried to call the locksmith but kept getting cut off so asked my son to please call for me.. It is now 1145 and they are due in an hour. So I stand there in the cold with a case of beer and a beer making kit praying nothing else will go wrong.
The guy showed up and unlocked the door and off I went to run the rest of my errands. Actually thought of just going home, but said you are here... just get it done.
So finally got home and really tired and ticked.
Then I call my mother in law who says the urologist wants to run another test of my father in law to find out why he can't void all his pee. I mentioned that they might want to do an IVP later to find out if anything else is wrong they can't see and she will not let him have it if they are going to use any contrast. He is a very controlled diabetic but she will not allow him to do it just because.
Next week he is still having another ultrasound on his kidney's and she believes that mass they found on Nov 8 is a shadow and not a cyst and the doctor just anwts more money. they have no idea on the results of any of this labs and will not ask for copies to compare numbers over the years.
Considering what I have been through with my kidneys in the last year, I do know a few things she should be asking butshe is not. Hubby is an only child who is definetely his fathers son and I get to deal with everything.
Remember though, my MIL is 21 years younger than my FIL and 6 years older than hubby and me
