I stayed home today to catch up on the laundry. It has been 10 days. B's Mom kept putting things in the washing machine, but not running it. She once told me that it was because she wanted the load to be full. I didn't tell her that the model she has allows you to select the water capacity. I know she knows that. It was just another reminder that this is her house, not mine. Thank goodness I own at least three weeks worth of underwear.
The first thing I did when I came downstairs was to clean out the new fridge. There was rotting fruit, fish, and rice that we were not going to eat. It really bugs me how much food they just stick in the fridge with the 'intention' of eating. It is gross and it makes the other food smell and sometimes even go bad.
Despite that there was a dozen eggs, they went out and bought 18 more because they went to CostCo. So now there are two dozen eggs in the fridge, for two people. This after she told B that at least two of his relatives are on medication for high cholesterol. Why? Because they were cheap – that is why.
I know I shouldn't let this crap get to me, but it does bother me. I am trying to just rejoice that we have about two weeks of respite. Of course I need to delouse the house as B's mother caught the plague during her cleaning spell. She almost didn't get on the plane this morning. She went to see her brother, who is a radiologist, and he took an x-ray of her lungs to see if she had pneumonia. She wanted to know about her bone density, and he told her she didn't have a back bone. Good try, Uncle P, but you need to brush up on what the idioms mean.
p.s. Looks like they caught a tail wind and are now only 8 minutes off schedule.
