So, DH calls his dad (his dad has a cell phone) just about every single evening. Calls him up last night and FIL tells him he's staying at a nursing home/care place. DH is like what? why? Well, SIL needed a break. He said it was better (though I'm sure he was just saying that) because now he doesn't have to make his own breakfast and lunches and make his own bed. His house is supposed to close in 9 more days. I'm not sure if this will be the place he's staying in, after that, or not. He told DH he has a roommate, which I'm sure must be hard. DH said the guy had the tv on so loud in the background, that it was hard for FIL and DH to talk/hear each other. You'd think, these places/homes where they have to share rooms, they could have the people use headphones. That way, each person could have their own tv and watch what they want to watch and not have to listen to a tv on full blast. My dad always had to have the tv so loud, so mom got him those tv ears, so he could watch tv and she didn't have to have it on loud.
SIL never even messaged DH yesterday that this change was happening. Like my DD said, she just can't imagine Grandpa is that hard to deal with. He's very quiet and doesn't like to make waves or conflict at all.
I follow a couple of dog rescue Facebook pages. Peoples comments and ideas just amaze me sometimes. One of the rescues (who has a lot of followers) posted a cute little video of her own pack and her rescues going out for a quick midnight potty break (captured on her surveillance cam). There was literally like 8 flakes of snow on the ground and it was probably at freezing temps. Based on a whole bunch of idiotic comments you'd think she was engaging in animal abuse! It's too cold for the dogs to be outside, etc. Good grief. These people either don't have dogs or they don't live in cold climates, LOL. If I never let my dogs outside because of the snow and the cold temps they wouldn't have been outside since last November! Our neighbors dogs have a dog door that they can go outside whenever they please. They spend more time outdoors than indoors and will sit outside in 20 degrees without a care. Like some people replied - what is she (or any dog owner in a cold climate) supposed to do? just let their dogs pee and poop in the house? It sounds like someone on some other page, who doesn't like her, posted about the video, with misleading info, and got all their followers to bombard her with rude comments. People!
And the painter lady put another hole in our drywall! It was her fault and DH says she was yelling at her son and hubby like it was their fault. They needed to move the scaffolding in the great room and DH told them that wasn't going to work, that they needed to take off the top row....and she was pushing it over, while her son was yelling at her to stop and she punched a hole in the ceiling. Just another thing for the taper guy to fix. I guess he's supposed to come next week to do the repairs.
She asked me a long time ago what colors I wanted to paint the inside and outside of the patio doors and the doors from garage and laundry to outside. Inside was the wall color, outside was to be dark brown to match the garage doors. She asked me awhile back what color stain I wanted for inside and outside on the front entry door. I told her both sides the same as the stain being used on all the inside doors and trim. Yesterday she tells DH she needs to know what stain I want on the entry door. Today, DH comes in the shop and says, she's pulling off the patio doors to paint, you might want to go out there and check with her because I'm getting the impression she is going to paint them the light outside trim color. So, I went out there and yes, she was going to paint the light trim color. She doesn't even remember she already asked me what I wanted to do months ago. If she's not ready for that part, or going to remember when the time comes, then why even ask. LOL. Or take notes, so you have them when the time comes, instead of just assuming.
I'm only working a half day today, so have decided to go into the city by myself this afternoon and do a few errands. #1 - get my hair cut! I can't stand it all one length anymore. I need some layers. #2 - stop in the granite place and look at the whole slab. The lady said she had her husband move it out from behind all the slabs so I could stop in some time and look at the whole thing. #3 - stop at Lowe's and look at drawer pulls and knobs. We think we want them on all the cabinets. The cabinet guys said they would install them when they come back out to finish in a couple of weeks. (because they had to re-order a couple of the cabinets, it will be a couple of weeks).
I took a few kitchen pics last night:
They didn't hang the upper cabinets because one of them was the wrong size. At the corner, where the 2 upper cabinets will meet will be a shelf unit, in between the two upper cabinets. For knicknacks, etc. I didn't even realize the garbage can drawer actually comes with garbage cans, LOL. I think I'm really going to like those lower pull out drawers, for like mixing bowls and pots and pans.
There are birds in the trees outside chirping like crazy. Spring must finally be here!
