Went to the InLaws' for the weekend, first time in 2 years.
Leo's anxiety was on high all weekend, because the FiL could not get it through his head that THIS DOG does not like you, LEAVE HIM ALONE. And yes, Leo snapped at him several times. He still didn't learn. (Thank gods for muzzles.)
Brought back an antique china set from Mark's grandparents'. There's another set that's supposed to go to his sister, but we both know, she'll never go get it. She'll make up excuses as to why. Need to look up our pattern on Replacements.com and see what it's called. We plan to use ours from now on, whenever we have company, instead of leaving it packed away. I'll have to get photos.
Also brought back 75% of a collection from his dad. He kept calling it 'a burden'. If it's such a burden, why keep it? Why keep collecting it? anyway. I'll use it to fill out my collection and figure out what to do with the rest. It's not like I'll get any of my dad's collection, after all, it was supposed to go to my brother, though Mom has said she was going to split it between us and the grandkids. It's not that large, Mom, just give it to Dan.
Cooked and froze at least 3 months worth of meals for the InLaws', since MiL is completely bedridden and mostly non verbal now (damn Alzheimer's). It'll make things easier on the FiL, who is her primary caregiver, when it comes to meals.
Mom is moved out to my brother's. She never told me she was moving that quickly. Last I was told, she wouldn't be until the middle of this month. Still deciding how I feel about that.
Trying to get back into the groove of going to the dojo, and trying to find motivation for it again. Caena's 13th birthday would have been tomorrow, so I know that's influencing things.
Voted yesterday in the Democratic Primary. At least one person I voted for won. So that's something. The other two who won (that I did not vote for) were honestly , well, why bother type of wins. Because both have been in their positions before, so both were essentially shoo-ins. and unfortunately, older White Guys. Again. But our new Dem Lt Governor candidate is a Woman of Color, which is a first for Virginia. So hopefully that opens the floodgates from here on out.
Got a KickStarter reward on Monday, themed dice that we plan to use as Yule gifts for our gaming group. They're really adorable. Need to photograph them as well.
Anyway, that's the bare bones. More after I ruminate on it a bit longer.
