Ever since FIL went into the nursing home a few days ago, he's going downhill fast. I had hoped he might actually feel a little better staying there, as he'd have more care and help, rather than being alone at SIL's home so much. He only talked to dh on the phone like 2 minutes last evening. He called him again later this morning and again it was only a couple of minutes call again and he seemed confused. DH was trying to tell him that our DD was going to visit him today and he had to repeat it a couple of times. DH is a bit miffed at his sister for her attitude and I think he kind of feels like it's her fault that he's suddenly gone so downhill the past few days, after being put in that nursing home. I told him he can be upset with her for how she's acting, but it's not her fault he is dying. He's 80 years old and has heart and lung disease as a result of smoking for 60+ years. That part is not her fault.
DH is guessing her sudden change in attitude towards FIL and DH and his brother, is a few weeks ago, when FIL told DH about accepting the offer on the house, he said he wants to split whatever money is left from the house between the 4 kids (there is another older brother). DH has a feeling she is mad about that, hence the change in attitude toward FIL and DH and his younger brother. Most problems are really usually about money, right?
Surprise - the mason guy, the finish guy and the painter are here working on a Saturday. The mason guy should be finished up with the island/bar stonework today. He finished the fireplace stone yesterday. When the weather is warm enough, he will come back to do the outside stonework to finish the shop and house. It's 50 degrees today! Spring is finally starting to come and hopefully all this snow will melt soon.
I finally got my hair cut and layered . It's so much nicer. All one length just doesn't look that good on me. I like it to the top of my shoulders, but not all one length. I just went into Great Clips. I put the app on my phone to see the wait time and so I could check in when I got into the city and if there was going to be a wait I'd go run one of my other errands first. But, there was zero wait time, so I got right in and out. I did feel quite old, though...when the girl was processing my payment and says "do you qualify for senior citizens discount?" I asked what age and she said 65..........enough said (beings I'm 55)
It sure was nice to just get out and do something on my own for a change. While there is still lots of snow covering the ground, the roads are all clear and bare now. I stopped at the granite place and took a look at the whole slab, that they will be using for my kitchen and master bath countertops. Then I decided I'd get us some Subway sandwiches to take home for dinner. Use up a giftcard I have. The only two Subways I knew of were one inside Walmart and one back where I'd get on the freeway to go home, but it was on the other side of the street and would be pretty much impossible to get back across. I googled to see if there might be another one near the granite place. LOL. It was literally around the corner, so I went to that one.
Next stop was a quick stop at the grocery store for some milk. That is something we always run out of in between our 2 week shopping trips. I decided to get gas, too, at the gas station there. It was packed, but I got pulled in one spot left. My credit card wouldn't work. So, then I used my debit card and it wouldn't work. Said see cashier. Grrrr.. I wasn't in the mood and still had over a half a tank, so decided to forget it. Then I went to the bank and deposited a check. Then across the parking lot to Lowe's to look at drawer pulls and pick up a few things. On my way back to the freeway, I stopped at another gas station, where my card, of course, worked fine and filled up the tank.
I spent this morning cleaning "house" in the shop. Vacuumed our carpet/rug areas, washed dishes, did a load of laundry, and cleaned the bathroom. I was trying to take a little nap earlier. DH was out in the house and texted me that the painter lady and hubby were going to come in the shop and borrow the microwave to heat up their lunch. Oh well, so much for a nap, haha.
