When your family goes above and beyond for you

This afternoon mom and my sister were busy helping me out, helping me to put everything back where it goes, like, my ornaments on my mantelpiece, and hanging my curtains, and mirrors, things like that, that had not been done the other day after my uncle finished the painting.

They got everything done in an hour!

They are amazing!

I am so lucky to have such an incredible mom and sister, they are always so supportive, and always available to help me if I need it.

I am so blessed!

After they finished we had a cup of tea together, and a bit of a chin wag, a girly girl sort of chat.

We mostly spent time talking about my dad, and his ongoing anxiety that he isn’t dealing with, and he refuses to admit he has.

Well, if he won’t admit to it, nobody can help him. But honestly, you’d need the patience of a saint to put up with him.

I won’t even go into it because he stresses me out, and I don’t need the stress.

My mom is so strong, because, I can tell you all now that if I had to live with my dad day in and day out I’d have killed him by now.

He’s very controlling, and he’s very set in his ways, heaven forbid you break his routine.

Anyway. My sister and mom left at 5:25, they were picking my nephew up, he had a birthday party this afternoon for one of his classmates.

It was nice to get a ride home from my sister, it saved me on taxi fares.

  1. Lol it seems like both our dads are kind of similar personality-wise. But I’m glad your mum and sister are so helpful, it’s really great to have such helpful family. 🙂
