I am so happy today!!
Dad and SM were supposed to fly in for a family event this weekend, but SM got sick and couldn't make it. My relief is indescribable. She actually drug it right down to the wire, was at the airport and then decided she didn't want to come. Thank goodness. She is SICK and she was going to fly for 8 hours to get here. Any bets that the rest of us would have gotten sick too? Anyone remember the last time she came out she was sick and got us all horribly sick on our vacation?
No special shopping trips. No mindless conversation. No person butting into my conversation with EVERYONE to talk about herself.
No special favors, or having to leave the event early because of _______________ whatever she wants to pick this day as an excuse. No driving her up 200 miles to see her family (yes, I actually WAS going to do that). And yes, this is petty, but no wet floor and shaved animal wads of hair in the bathroom.
Just me and my dad and my daughter this weekend. Bliss.
