The days are ticking by. I have another week and another round of visitors will arrive. This round of visitors will go better than the first round of visitors. I have decided to start writing a domestic assistance book. I think I’m going to write it for my daughter, but if I get it done early enough I will give a copy to my sister-in-law. Over the last three weeks, I have heard about how easy it is to be a stay at home mom and wife, and how when you are at home, you are essentially lazy, and how you shouldn’t have to do anything while at home. I want to turn that idea on its head. Right now, I am being quite lazy, due to my circumstances, but in a few days my energy sucker will be leaving and I will be able to accomplish a few simple tasks. I’m excited for my parents and brother to visit. I only wish my brother’s stay would be a little bit longer. Maybe he’ll change his mind once he sees the location, but I highly doubt it. He is not much of a family person, and I often get the impression he doesn’t like me.
I have ultimately washed my hands of his feelings towards me. I used to feel badly, or guilty that he has a certain disdain for me, but then I learned some of the things that others have said about me. He believes what people who don’t know me very well have said about me, and I figure that’s his problem instead of mine. If wanted to know the truth, he could ask. He would rather believe a truth that’s his own, and it’s not really my problem.
