We met some nice people by joining the local aquarium society. A bunch of fish nerds like me. If you joined the local betta or general fish club you wouldn't be a "fish out of water" and the group would benefit by having you as a member. I understand it can be tough with aging parent, we are going through this as well and it can be very stressful.

I'm the one who has to live with her and take care of her. My brother is out of town a lot for his job but neither he nor my SIL have any patience or compassion for old people. They don't want to take her anywhere because she has to use a walker and they don't want it in their BMW.

My brother and sister in law came over tonight and brought watermelon and cookies. They moved my bed to the middle of the room instead of against the wall. The room is tiny and not what I'm used to but I'll be getting a Murphy bed which will take up half of the other room I'll eventually move into. We also found out that my sister in law 's daughter and granddaughter are coming next week.

Everything here is a pain in the hind end. We went to get our id and driver's license and we have to prove residency. We haven't been here quite a month and my mom didn't have her birth certificate so we have to go back. Then my mom can't get her pain meds refilled because the insurance and doctor's office aren't working together very well. *sigh*

My brother just had a guy over to give him an estimate on the cost of a pool.

Just another boring weekend. I have some cleaning to do but don't feel like doing it. Lol. Always something to do around the house.

Did some mopping, cleaned the kitchen ciuntertops and made lasagna and spinach for dinner. Not sure what we're having tomorrow night. My brother leaves for North Carolina Monday to drive his stepdaughter and step granddaughter here. His stepdaughter just got a job in Dallas so they'll be moving up there in a few weeks. I wish it wasn't so freaking hot here.
