It has been a few days since I blogged but I am
truly glad to have my car back. Not really driving
more than usual although we did drive my car to
the grandsons birthday party on Saturday. MIL
was content to leave her car at our house. I do not
care for the way her car handles. The wheel base
is too short so it is easy to overcorrect when driving.
DH was happy to let me drive. I parked in front of DD's
house as I was afraid there would be ice between the
garage and the backyard fence. That sidewalk was clear
until the melting snow oozed over the sidewalk in the
afternoon. When we left, DH takes off walking and lets
me be in charge of MIL. I scolded him because she is
frail and he didn't let her take his arm for stability. I said
she didn't need to fall and break a hip. I had my hands
full with leftovers from the party and no free hand to help her.
He finally got the hint. It was icy and Mom was walking on
egg shells. I wish he would understand and not have to
be reminded that he is more capable of keeping her from
falling than I am. But he always walks ahead with no idea
for her safety. Kind of a very old habit and one that he isn't
about to change. Plus she was wearing some slick little shoes
with no grips on the soles. Good for inside but not for ice.
I am working on a letter for the crop insurance meeting in 2
weeks. Just has to meet the approval of SIL.
In just one week, baby Jacob will be adopted. We drive to Minnesota
on the 15th and MIL wants to go along. It will be a 3+ hour trip
and I am hoping the weather is nice. I am sure that DH will "let"
me drive. He has gotten very adamant that he doesn't need the
stress but he would drive his mother across the state, no questions
asked, if that was what she wanted. Strange thinking there.
Better move on and get some work done before the phone starts
ringing. Have a Happy Hump Day! HUGS!
