So 3 of the kids who now live away from home have now left and gone back, leaving just the 21 YR old still here visiting as she has the most time off ( 2 weeks) from university but the second-oldest went back first, the day after Christmas as she had to get back to work,and the 18 YR old left yesterday as she has to get back to school and also as she’s visiting her BF and his family for a few days,too, before she heads back,and wouldn’t you know it, her train was 90 minutes late and the train station here is nothing more than this teeny little bus shelter with no heat.Slowly, one by one, they leave and the 18 YR old was funny,too, she said she shouldn’t have to wash the dishes as she’s a guest in our home and I told her she’s not a guest, she’s family and if she’s a guest then why are we doing her laundry for her and my hubby added and if she’s a guest then why does she open our fridge and just help herself so I asked So then, are you a guest….or family? and she laughed and goes, It depends… She was also spooked one night woken up by a mouse by her head at her pillow eating her Christmas Kinder egg chocolate she got in her stocking!
As well, it’s freezing cold out there and we broke a record; – 28 C with wind-chill of – 34 C and they say New Year’s Eve is expected to be the coldest one in 50 years and it’s cold here today the coldest place on Earth right now,too, even colder than the North Pole and Nunavut! You have no idea how much I’m tempted right now to just contact my travel agent and have her book me a last minute trip to the Caribbean; just charge it on my credit card and just go, like I did when I went to Cuba back in May…it’s too bad I’d have to come back though.
I was thinking as well how they’re concerned the 21 YR old may have a blood disorder as she bled so much and so heavy after her foot surgery and it hit me that I likely do as well and that’s probably where she got if from; genetics, as every time I have a baby I bleed profusely; I hemmorage, and it always worries them and I have to stay a long time in the recovery room for observation and always need drugs in the IV to control the bleeding and with the 3rd baby they were even thinking I might need a transfusion and with Aunt Flow it’s always so heavy and soaking thru tampons every hour, sometimes even less… it really does make me wonder…
My mother also was startled seeing alot of blood in the toilet and she thought someone had Aunt Flow and didn’t flush but it turned out it was her and she’s bleeding out of her ass, just like I was before, and mine turned out to be a polyp in my colon so I wonder if she has the same thing, esp. since colon polyps tend to be genetic as well? Hopefully that’s all it is, either that or hemmoroids or something, and not cancer…the weird thing is too that I’m more worried about her rectal bleeding than I ever was about my own! Buddy also often barks at the 10 YR old and the 21 YR old but not the others like that and my theory is that he can somehow sense people that are hostile to me and don’t like me and he’s being defensive and trying to protect me from people he thinks may do me harm because they give off this negative vibe towards me….
As well as that, I’d mentioned this guy on a commercial on TV has a girl’s hairstyle as it was long and pushed back with a headband and she snarled I shouldn’t insult him and that my hair is a guy’s hairstyle when I didn’t even mean anything of it; I wasn’t even “insulting” him; it was just an observation, a comment,and I notice that her and the second-oldest are the worst at doing that to me; whenever I say anything, express an opinion, make an observation or statement they always think it’s critical and insulting even when it’s not, even when it’s just an observation or my opinion,and they always scold, condemn, rebuke, and berate me for it. I can’t say anything without them jumping on me, taking it the wrong way, twisting it around,and turning on me. The 14 YR old also said that I’m the most disgusting person she knows but at least I’m not the one that drinks juice out of the container…. I use a glass, and I don’t wipe my dirty greasy hands on my pants,either.
