MIL's 80th birthday yesterday OMG sooooooooooooo hot!

Friday, July 05, 2013

My MIL is always cold so no AC at her house and it was so hot I didn't think I'd last long especially with 3 cats (asthma and high allergy to them usually end up in the emergency room) I was dying especially since I'm always carrying a fever from the lyme it was like being in a pressure cooker! Hubby kept asking how I was I wanted to say lets leave but his mom is in such poor shape not much longer she has left.
I sat near the fan but omg it didn't help at all, I drank 3 waters and felt dehydrated, good think I made a pasta dish they had like no food at this party, my Sil made potato salad yuck she doesn't know how to cook, the other bought salad yes bought it and the other threw some deli meat on a platter and then there was my pasta dish that they didn't even know I was bringing and that's it and they had quite a few people there.
My MIL looked so lost, it's so pitiful to see cause she was so aggressive when I first met her she has caused a fair amount of drama in my life in the beginning and to see her like this , even though she could be quite mean at times I long for those days when she knew everyone and you could have a conversation with her and she knew what she was talking about. Everyday to her is new cause her dementia is getting worse, it's so sad....
We stayed till the end almost I did it for my hubby, we were all dead from the heat that we didn't even see fireworks cause it was like we were exhausted from being so hot.
So we rented a movie and enjoyed ourselves in the AC, even hubby said if I feel like this I can just imagine you....
My sil upset me cause hubby closed the door to the room where the cats were and she was making a big deal about it and he said look my wife his highly allergic and has asthma I'm not spending the night at the hospital cause of your cats.
So she piped down, she complained of her aches and pains how she had to work that night she works part time and has no money. We use to warn her to save her money but she'd spend it like it was coming out of the faucett.
We have our own financial problems I don't need to hear hers and don't want to, I felt like saying you got it tough? you work part time your brother works a full time job trying to get OT and works weekends and we never see him and we're living off of bare essentials, but she's not worth it..
MIl had a good day that's all that mattered!

    It has been brutal these past few days. five days of 90+ heat is too much for this area. I'll be glad when this heatwave finally breaks. I can't tell you how much water I drank yesterday and it still didn't seem to be enough.

    It stinks that she has to go work for a bit at night, but if she had fun at her birthday party, that's what counts.

    emoticon Keep drinking that water and enjoy the a/c !
