Lots of things happening this weekend:
-My Mother-in-law had an episode and had to be rushed to the hospital Thursday morning. She was disoriented and could not tell time. She pointed the TV remote control at the microwave and expected it to work. Everyone thought stroke but it appears she was not taking a medication properly. She went home and yesterday again was rushed to the hospital. This time she will stay in for a few days. Aparently, her thyroid is way out of whack, which isn't unusual as she has had previous issues, but this time something is definitely up. For now, we are not flying to Alberta as they are keeping her in to do more tests.
-My Mother called me yesterday excited as someone appears very interested in buying her old mobile home. This would be excellent news as a condo two blocks away from our home here in Comox awaits her arrival. We cannot have her move until the mobile sells as it is much cheaper to keep the condo vacant than the mobile. She put it on the market in May. The woman who is interested cannot make an offer as she is waiting on a divorce settlement. We are trying not to get excited as it really means nothing until an offer is made. I have no idea how long she has to wait on her settlement so for now things are as they were.
-We just brought up 8 large Rubbermaid containers of Christmas Crap from the basement, all purchases and/or inherited many years ago. Some of it was downsized before we left Alberta. It seems I have a bit more downsizing to go. I just don't have the energy for it anymore. I decorate a little bit each day or when I feel like it. Today the only Christmas crap that went up was the wreath on the front door. For now the rest of it has been stuffed in the spare bedroom. My goal every year is to have the decorating and shopping done by December 1 so I can relax and enjoy the holiday season. I have two full weeks and the intention was to get the exterior lights on the house this weekend. That didn't happen due to Corporate blog issues so hopefully we can get it done next weekend. The lights, however, have been located and are ready to go.
-I have no mojo, blogging mojo that is. It might be that we just switched over our Corporate blog web host to a different provider and I spent three hours yesterday learning Wordpress and re-loading lots of old blogs. These new guys are great but we prefer to have lots of control over our Corporate blog so there are still lots of kinks to be worked out and things I need to learn.
-I am sick of fighting with my monthly grocery budget of $425. Prices have risen and my thrifty powers are still not cutting it. As of December 1 I am raising my budget to $450 - for all food, cleaning and over the counter medications and vitamins. This month hubby stocked up on vitamins and we have now already exceeded the budget. Oh well, we are pretty healthy and as we pay as you go for healthcare costs this is money well-spent.
-It is beautiful here this weekend. Five degrees celcius and sunshine. The family in Alberta are dealing with the aftermath of a snowstorm. Looks like it is going to be a really white Christmas in Alberta this year.
So, as the title goes, whatever will be will be. Life goes on while we wait medical and financial news for our parents. How was your weekend?
