Let’s review the past week:
- Deal with mom being evicted from her facility for no rational reason and scramble around finding a new one over the weekend? Check.
- Deal with negotiating an offer on my house and how to fix what may turn out to be a $20,000 contingency on the sale? In progress.
- Visit my aunt in hospice on Friday afternoon, only to have her die five minutes after I arrive, and then squeeze the funeral into an already crazy weekend? Check. (Good thing I didn’t need much time to grieve.)
- Deal with physically moving all my mom’s stuff from The old facility to the new one? In progress.
- Deal with three other minor repairs in my house prior to the inspection on Monday? In progress.
- Try to actually do my job–which has a lot of things pending right now too–for a few hours? In progress.
Frankly that sounds like enough to me. But no. Tonight on my way home after a morning of phone calls followed by three hours of signing paperwork and one hour of moving crap, I got rear-ended. Which means I have one more thing on my plate to spend even more hours I don’t have dealing with. its drivable and I’m not hurt, but to say that I really don’t need this right now is a huge fucking understatement.
I’m not sure whether locusts or leprosy will be next.
I still manage to have my sense of humor, but it’s getting a little harder. If this were a fucking movie, no one would buy the plot.
I’ve been holding it together pretty well for the past two years, so please allow me to be a basket case this week. I will stop whining soon.
(BTW, suggestions and nursing home/insurance/construction horror stories are really not what I need at this point, particularly with my limited time and overloaded brain. This is a really specific situation and I pretty much know what’s going on. I would gladly accept generic moral support, though!)
