We were down for what, close to a week? It has been an interesting week.
Surgeon sis and her partner came to visit. They're nice people and I like her partner, but sis hasn't worked since she moved in with her partner and seems to have become accustomed to not really accomplishing much and not really paying attention to anyone other than herself, her partner, and her cat. Like leaving laundry strewn about, dishes in the sink (or strewn about because why not leave lunch dishes on the table for hours?), and wanting to "help" but then refusing to do things she was specifically asked to help do. Sorry, but I don't consider a family member coming to stay to be the sort of guest who doesn't cook or clean yet expects to be provided with food.
She went to brunch and came home at 5pm and oh so helpfully told me that she thought I was working too much and ought to hire out all of the things that need to be done.
We get along ok most of the time, but this was not one of her better visits. Mom was also stressed out by having her around because Mom is working on packing up the library and sis wanted to pick paint colors and didn't want to help with the things she could've actually
helped to do.
Oh, and I think A is now scheduled for another surgery in about three weeks. It should
be a fairly minor surgery for anyone who isn't her, but there are a lot of extenuating factors that mean she'll probably be in the hospital for a few days and will have a more involved follow-up surgery about six weeks later. A is stressed because she doesn't want to have surgery but feels like it's her only option, and Mom is still not driving and is overall fairly tired so it's hard to say how much she will be able to do in a few weeks.
But hey, the bathroom is making progress. Plumbing and HVAC has been moved. Electrical is being moved right now and sheetrock is supposed to go in on Friday. Then I just have to do all of the things (tile + a lot of carpentry projects) to make it back into a functional bathroom. Unfortunately I've had to accept that a lot of the carpentry projects I will actually enjoy will likely have to wait because things like tile have to be done before the plumbing can be finished and that's the most important part of the bathroom.
going to see my most favorite live band on Friday and Tuesday. They haven't been on tour in a little while so I'm super stoked about that, even though the the Friday show is about three hours away so it will be a very
