My home was invaded on Monday, New Years day, by my husband’s brother and his son. They’d come up from Chicago for a family visit last Friday and they decided to stay at our house for a few days while they were in Canada.
They weren’t supposed to come over until Tuesday, and I was not feeling well on Monday when they arrived. No I didn’t party on New Years – I stayed home by myself because I wasn’t well. Anyway, we had a nice time Monday evening and made plans to go to a hockey game on Tuesday evening.
Tuesday night I was so ill that I was actually falling asleep during a hockey game. I don’t think I’ve ever fallen asleep in public let alone at a hockey game! This one had brawls every few minutes too. I have no idea why I was so sleepy but I was, and I found myself nodding off several times. Very strange.
The evening was ruined at the end. My husbands brothers 18 year old daughter was flying in from Chicago that evening. Chris went to pick her up after the hockey game. They called her on the cell phone just as she arrived to find out what terminal she was in. Toronto has three terminals so it’s important to know which one your landing in or picking someone up from. Anyway, she had no clue, so Chris asked her to ask someone and call him back when she was getting her bags.
Well, she never did ask anyone. I had to figure out which terminal she was at by looking up the airlines on the net here at home. So it was a mess of phone calls back and forth and this girl doesn’t like to wait. of course when I looked at her paperwork when she got her it did say what terminal she was landing in. She was just being too dumb or stubborn to look at it.
Now if only that was all that went wrong. It wasn’t. The airline lost her bags! So when Chris and his nephew arrived back at the house – about two hours later than they should have she was in a horrible mood. So bad in fact that she didn’t even say hello to me. That really ticked me off because I was the only person she hadn’t seen in months and she couldn’t even say hello?
It’s not that she doesn’t like me or anything. She was just in a mood. She’s a real princess that one. If she doesn’t get what she wants she whines!
The rest of their visit was ok. We went out to dinner on Wednesday night, and the guys watched some of the World Junior hockey games that we’d recorded on the DVR earlier that day. Speaking of which the Gold match is on today!
Yesterday I had yet another doctors appointment in the morning. Chris went with me and when we came back the gang was just getting up. We’d found out the night before that the airport had found my nieces bags, and they were delivered to the house around noon on Thursday. My niece was finally happy. They left a while after the bags arrived and I went back to bed for a couple of hours because I’d only slept two hours the night before.
I’m just so dragged out. I’m in pain, not feeling well, and I’m totally exhausted but I can’t sleep because of the pain. This was not the time for me to have three extra people in my house.
I have a feeling we’ll be going out of town tonight. Chris’ brother is going to drive back to Chicago on Saturday, so he’s spending Friday night at their parents house, and I think we might go there for a final visit before they go. All I can say though is that if I’m still feeling like crap I’m not going.
