Today I was referred to a neurologist. I’ll explain later.
I’ve helped SO with his loss over his house. He’s done well with it all. The insurance company has agreed on what to give him, the house is no longer there and he feels good about it. The property looks different, of course, but better. And he likes it, I think he’s feeling pretty good about burying that past. I’m happy that I’m here for this with him. Tater and I hung out with him last weekend. He took Tater riding on his 4-wheeler and actually let her drive it by herself, but only on the property. We all had a really good time.
Oh yeah, if I didn’t mention it before, SHB moved away. Good riddance!
I’m finally healing from my injured tailbone (actually the big bone above it…I’ve been having to sit on a donut pillow for the past 3 weeks) and my broken pinky toe is not so black and blue anymore. Still very sore though. Maybe in a couple of weeks I’ll be able to walk normal again 🙂 K well I gotta get ready for work.
Hope you’re doing well my friends.
Friday I did something uncharacteristic of myself. I suggested to Tater that I take her to see her grandmother. Not my mom, but SO’s. My former mother-in-law. I have finally accepted that all of this will be a lot easier if I am not so scared of her feelings about me. I haven’t been negative about it, but you know what I mean. Since this whole thing with SO and I started, I’ve been hesitant about what her thoughts on it all…on me might be. And I’ve realized that things would be easier if I’m willing to budge a little more. In the past, I would ask SO about her…how she’s doing,etc. But I would never take Tater over to see her myself. It dawned on me this past week that SO will feel more at ease about me and his mom getting along if I make a little more effort. None of this ever occurred to me until after I had went over there. SO had called me later to thank me and tell me it was really sweet for me to take Tater to see her.
Anyway, it will just make things easier on everyone. I won’t be so hesitant and worried about what she thinks of me. And SO won’t be so worried about how we’ll get along. Not to mention that Meemaw only sees the people around her senior citizen community and SO, who visits her daily. Her oldest grandchild, SO’s daughter, doesn’t come around much anymore. And she only gets to see Tater when SO takes her over there every few weeks. So, it will be better on everyone if I take her at least once every week.
