John isn't going to get unemployment. Eh. I don't know if he'll appeal or not.

It's been nearly 2 months since anyone has looked at the house. I know it's the season but still it's frustrating. I want to move.

Our trip was really nice. I'm tired of doing it in 4 days though. I think I'm sending John by himself next time. I just hate the running around & his father's apartment is very small & uncomfortable. There is only 1 comfortable chair & then the dinette set. We spent 4 hours there on Thursday. My ass was killing me by the time we left.

I love going to the Cape because when it's just sitting around the house time it's good. It's quiet & it's relaxing. It's dealing with having to go see John's father that wears on me. I can't understand half of what his father says because he slurs his speech; either due to laziness, his French accent, bad dentures or a combination of all 3. I don't know but it doesn't make for pleasant conversation.

Since we got him sober he doesn't hit anymore but he does try to stir up a fight at least twice per visit. This trip it was all about talking about "(our) friend, that black president that got elected." He's such a racist pig. He doesn't know half of what he tries to talk about politically & gets pissed if we try to correct him. Our course of action is to stay on our toes & redirect the conversation to less controversial subjects. It's a pain in the ass.

He's 89-years-old. He has a really hard time moving around now because of pain. They have him on some sort of pain killer that is escaping me but it's not supposed to be addictive. I don't know how much he's supposed to take but he told us yesterday that he took a double dose & felt weird after taking it but that he survived so now he'll take a double dose all the time. Great. Over-dose. Just what we need.


I ate entirely too much fried food--clam strips & French fries. I ate entirely too much clam chowder. I'm bloated & feel greasy today. I can't wait to start eating clean again. lol I didn't drink enough water either. Ugh. I didn't workout at all. Not even a little bit. I'll go back to the gym on Monday & hit it hard.

Sounds like you're right in between where you were and where you're going, and there's what appears to be a huge boulder between here and there. I hope it's not really that big though! You guys are smart and something will come your way soon. I just know it.

Vacations happen, and so does "getting back at it." :) Yay!

Ugh. My sister and mom have differing political views, and my sister KEPT trying to have political conversations (aka, fights) with my mom, in my presence, presumably so that I would side with her. I just leave the room, when possible, lol. Regardless, I don't take the bait.

BUT my point is that I know how tiring that is! :( I can feel how long that 4 hours you spent at your FILs was! :(

Good luck with the house! I think I saw on FB you had another showing? Fingers crossed!
