Honestly. 102*, BEFORE the heat index. At least it's already August....
1. MIL is...well, she is. Some days she's better than others. The dialysis doctor told her that she's on dialysis for the rest of her life.....which we had NOT told her. :sigh: Still, it's now out in the open and we can start working on her attitude towards it. (Uphill battle, but what do you do?) Thursday was a Bad day; Saturday she was almost normal. The nurses say she's doing OK.....
2. FIL is home; the kids are "babysitting" him. He needs it. Himself is the official receptionist; FIL refuses to answer the phone if he doesn't recognize the number. There are a LOT of people calling now to set up PT appointments, home health visits, etc......none of which he would have any way of recognizing. :sigh: He also can't remember what they do to him/for him when they're there, so both kids have been instructed to be nosy. I can't help if I don't know what's going on, and I simply can't be there every day, all day.
2a. The kids are NOT allowed to ride with FIL if they have a choice. He's easily distracted.....and I really don't want them hurt. :big sigh:
3. For mental health, I've started another 1950's Diamond Dress. What? The JoAnn's near the IL's had some "Starry Night" fabric, and it was 30% off. I've spent most of the day carefully laying out my pattern 1 piece at a time; I need to do my best to pattern match it at the center front and center back. :fingers crossed:
I'm trying to decide if I want to swim tonight or not. Sounds funny, huh? But it's so bloody hot....I'm not sure I want to go OUT in it, even if it is to swim. :sigh: Guess I'll do some more cutting....I need a new dress. They're all I want to wear in this heat, and even though SG bought me 4 little knit dresses at Wally-world, I prefer woven cotton to sleazy knits. However, in this heat? I'm not picky. :lol:
