Here it is, Friday the Thirteenth. And there is another Friday the Thirteenth next month. The last Friday the Thirteenth was in June. That was the day my mother-in-law had a stroke. It was the scariest day since I became a mother. My daughter was in her care and she was having a stroke. Luckily, I only work 2 miles from my in-laws home. I was able to call the ambulance for her and be there with her. At the time the stroke happened, my daughter was napping. That was a total blessing. I was so afraid. Thankfully, my mother-in-law made a full recovery in a short 6 weeks. She still has trouble with her handwriting but other than that, she's good.
My mother-in-law and I have always had a rocky relationship. Right now we are on the up and have been on the up (for the most part) since my daughter was born. I guess my daughter is the golden ticket. Prior to me marrying her son, she told me that I was only after his money and his car. At the time she told me that, he didn't have a job and his car was in need of a new transmission. Ironic. Hilarious, actually.
I guess Friday the Thirteenth will always scare the crap out of me. I ended up sleeping on my husband's side of the bed last night and when his alarm went off this morning at 3:30, I turned it off. I shot out of bed at 4:30 and he was pissed at me. Our daughter proceeded to wake up at 4:35 and she was inconsolable. I think she's teething so I gave her Motrin, a cup of milk, and a Nutrigrain bar. It worked and she was back in bed before 5:00. So it's been a rocky start to the day... which happens to be Friday the Thirteenth
My husband and I were talking about remodeling our home last night. I thought the plan was to move out of that house before our daughter started Kindergarten. I'm alright with staying there. I wish I knew what the future held so I can decide on which area I should concentrate my job search on. Although, the economy sucks so I'm stuck in this hell hole until things start looking better. And here I am at work again, pretending to work. I'm listening to other people talk about accounting and paying invoices so I'm just looking busy. It takes a lot of will power to come here everyday. I have no idea how much longer I can do it. But I have to.
Looks like another beautiful day. I hope it's nice out when we get home tonight, so we can go for a walk or play in the yard. We have a wedding to go to this weekend and we will be spending the night. It should make for a fun time. I love weddings.
