Family, New and Old

This morning is dark and gloomy. Again. I don’t remember the last time I saw the sun. We are supposed to get rain, freezing rain and maybe even a little snow. Yay. I know Archie won’t care but Stella will. Even living close to work I am not going to be a big fan if things get bad.

Archie made lots of new friends yesterday. He did very well in the car. He shook and whined a lot on the way there but he adapted well. He wasn’t at all sure about the vet’s office. Everyone just loved him though. It made me feel good when the vet told me that when she was giving Archie his exam she told him that he was a lucky dog because he would be set for his life with me as his Mom. He got plenty of treats and lots of love. After that we went to my work to get meat for them (I meant to get two days worth but I was busy talking to people and only got enough for yesterday). While we were there several people came out to meet Archie. He did very well. And of curse everyone loved him. I am very proud of him! Oh, the “little” boy weighs 84lbs at almost 7 months old.

I got a shocker phone call last night a little after 8:30pm. I did not recognize the phone number so I let it go to voicemail. It turned out to be my Uncle Chris (Mom’s brother). He was trying to get ahold of Mom. I am guessing it has something to do with things from Gramps estate. I won’t go into detail but things went south because of how things got handled as and after Gramps died. Mom and I no longer talk to Uncle Chris and his family, I am the only one who has been in touch with my other uncle and his wife in Floridia. Mom has cut herself off from everyone but me. I will probably call him once Chris gets up. I don’t want to talk to him but I also know if I just give him Mom’s number she won’t either. So I am going to try to get information to both. Mom will cut her nose off to spite her face. If this is even the slightest beneficial to her she will say no just because she doesn’t like Uncle Chris and his family. So I guess it’s up to me.

I am going to wrap this up. I’m not feeling any better. Worse if truth be told. It’s mostly from the neck up (I did manage to stay in bed all night but because I was sleeping at a weird angle my neck is all jacked). I am keeping up with the warm fluids. That atleast sooths my raw throat. I also have some water with orange rind, cinnamon and cloves simmering on the stove top. That seems to be helping. I don’t see me doing a whole lot today. Take care and thanks for reading!
