I'm Back From The Dead

Monday, August 20, 2012

Saturday I felt slighter better as opposed to ventilator ready. LOL. Hubby felt almost the same if not worse. He looked like someone who had been on a 3 day drunk. We felt compelled to go to my MIL's anyway because we are hard heads and we are trying to get loose ends wrapped up there. We are under a lot of pressure to get this trust/estate settled. We made it there and of course the yard had to be mowed. It's in the sun and he has to use a junky push mower. It's almost like a Bataan Death March. So he did that while I priced things inside. I hated every minute of it but at least it was cooler. He came in and helped me and we were so tired and cranky that were like too old dogs growling, snapping, snarling, and nipping at each other. Of course we don't mean any of it and he is constantly apologizing because I am just defending myself. I am the westie and he is the pitbull. We got through the tablecloths and drapes. I have never seen anyone with as much junk as my MIL had. I hate it. My hubby hates it. So many worthless knickknacks and useless objects. I used to be a minimalist before my mom died. Back then my friends were mortified that I didn't have a stereo or any other electronic equipment other than a 13 inch black and white T.V. that I got as a child. And I didn't care. Unfortunately I inherited really nice things from my mom. She wasn't into trashy junk so I have more than I want.

Sunday we stayed home and tried to get some rest but we needed to clean up some of the storm damage. Plus we both felt the need to get some exercise in though no one knows why 2 soon to be corpses need to hike. LOL. We needed to go to bed. I had a ton of work to catch up on and we were both still snarly. I didn't get any where near getting it all done.

Today I had a ton more stuff to do for hubby regarding the estate and trust. I swear I will not do it any more and then he needs me and has no one else to help so I reluctantly do what I have to do which usually means making phone calls to strangers. At least the ones today were nice.

I had to take out the compost, feed the wildlife, burn the trash sweep the floors, spot clean the cages. The sink was such a mess that by the time I unloaded the dishwasher and reloaded it was full again.

I had 3 turtles today and maybe more. Big Boy came and would not let the female eat as he wanted to hump her. The other big male also showed up and tried to hump her as well. I went out and ran them off so she could eat in peace.

My son ended up having to work all day as someone got sick.

    I honestly don't know how you hvaen't just gotten totally sick where you aren't able to do this stuff. Ironically you replied in one of my blogs that I am worse off... well I tend to think diff. we both have a lot of body stress going on for sure, and I have renos and you have estate. But whew you sound so ill and tired. I am more so sore and hurting, which makes me tired but at least I can lay down for while then pain leaves for the most part.
    HUGS and I do hope this estate stuff just gets over with, can you not donate some of the stuff to a charity? then sell the better stuff? Haven't a clue how estates work in the states.
    HUGS again

    Oh Dear.... your blog and the comments that followed it make me think I need to start slinging stuff from here too. Actually I KNOW I need to do that, I guess I just don't know where to start... so much of it is just "stuff", why do I think I need it?? It's not junk and it's not bad stuff, but nevertheless, it's still junk...

    I swore when I had to go through my parents things several years ago that I'd not leave it for my kids and then it's getting to the time of my life that I start to think about things like this~~~

    What a weekend you've had. I feel so bad for you to have to drive all
    the way to your MIL's and back after doing all the mundane jobs.
    I hope it gets sorted and finalized for your peace of mind. You deserve
    to have your own life back.

    I always love reading about your animals. Has Strawberry come back?
    Again, always thinking of you and it's time for our cuppa to relax a while.
    Have a great week. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    This sure makes me think. I have an awful lot of stuff around that doesn't get used. But I always think I'll use it someday. I'll see what I can bear to let go of and at least get rid of that. I'm sure my kids will thank me. Maybe they should thank you!? emoticon Janet

    I feel for you. Now I realize why my Daughter made me get rid of only what needed to live a peaceful, tranquil life.
    At one time I had way too much, Things I thought I had to have, to her and probably others it was clutter. I realize that now.
    If I bring any thing else into the house, something has got to go.
    I hope you get done soon and you won't have that estate on your mind any more.
    I would love to see the turtles. I am glad you looked out for the female one. Is it mating season?
    Get some rest.
    Stay strong, be positive.

    I have been there with a hubby handling the estate of his Mother and you get to the point that you want drugs or alcohol or both. It will be over someday, but I send you hugs until then.

    Hang in there, you have so much to deal with. I really hope the last of the estate business will be over soon.
