My turn again August 12, 2011

So, this weekend it’s my turn to go down to New Jersey to help my mother get moved.  Again.

This is turning into a nightmare.  For the last month, we’ve been trying really hard to get my mother to get her act together.  My wife has driven down ready to do whatever it takes.  Twice.

Now, I get to try again.  Unfortunately, I’m not going to have much time for packing, threatening, or anything else.  I don’t have vacation time, really.  So, I have to be back at work bright and early Tuesday.  Which means leaving work Saturday, coming home to grab a shower and something to eat and getting on the road.

With luck, I should be at Mom’s well before dark.  Which gives me all day Sunday to get as much stuff done as we can.  Because I need to get back on the road as early on Monday as I can.  I would like a little down time at home after spending roughly twelve hours in the car in addition to a day trying to get stuff accomplished in the face of serious opposition.  I’m funny that way.

At least the weather is cooler, and the driving shouldn’t be too bad.

By the way, if anyone has any ideas of anything that might be helpful that don’t involve either kidnapping or arson, I would be happy to listen.  Because if I grind my teeth much harder, I’m going to hurt myself.
