I/we have been married for over 46 years now. I say this because there comes a time when, in those 46+ years you can obviously get aggravated with your spouse. You tolerate, overlook some things but it's all a give and take, and acceptance. I say this because lately The Hubby has been aggravating me to the point of me exploding at him. I will admit it is all me doing the exploding. It is 6:30 in the morning and I thought The Hubby was getting ready to head to the office where he NEEDS to be getting the invoices ready for me to come in and type, but he's not. Let me back up a bit. I have had a lot on my plate, mentally, what with Baby Max and being there for Af and Nick and little Min while they deal with his birth and all that may happen there. I'm also dealing with, in my heart, the more immediate health issues that are my sister's cancer diagnosis and the thought of losing her. I have a lot on my mind. Since my hip surgery, The Hubby has been absolutely awesome with taking care of me and stepping up with doing the dishes and stuff. Monday morning he decided to clean the sinks in our bathroom. He cleaned toilets the other day. As usual there is now, never a dirty dish in the sink, EVER! And now, this early AM, after what I thought was the sound of him heading out the door was not that! 6:30 AM, he is running the vacuum. He said something the other day about cleaning baseboards and I just kind of put that back in my mind, but this morning, he is running the vacuum. Okay, should I be fine with this step up in his actions around the house lately, or should I feel, well, like he thinks I'm not a good housekeeper. I don't know what I should feel. I'm kind of pissed off about it really. I'm telling you if I don't do something he feels needs to be done when he thinks it should be done he will do it. Mind you we've had a cleaning person every two weeks for 30+ years and we don't now (long story.) So all this cleaning stuff has fallen on me, US! It's not like our house is a pigsty, it's not, just a bit dusty really. So I am sitting here typing on my laptop, enjoying my coffee and he is slaving away vacuuming the entire house. How would you feel if all of a sudden someone took over the management of your house. I mean I quit doing his laundry and ironing 30+ years ago after he started complaining that I wasn't doing it right. He has taken over the dishes thing because he says I haven't done it right for 46 years of marriage. Ummmm, how should I feel, grateful or am I getting ready to be unleashed upon with anger. I JUST DON'T KNOW! Okay, DO NOT get me wrong, I love that he is doing this stuff because frankly, I DON'T HAVE TOO! BUT, inside I have mixed emotions about it all.
Oh, I'm making a mountain out of molehill, maybe...
continued to the next cleaning surprise.

It is supposed to be the first weekend of fall and you could see it in the trees a bit as we drove to the cabin on Friday. I was going to the cabin by myself this weekend as The Hubby had a dance last night but we, I, decided that I would come back on Saturday with him as he decided to go Friday evening. Yes, our plans often hinge on a whim, a lot of the time. We left town about lunchtime Friday and on the drive stopped half way there to have lunch at the I Don't Care Bar & Grill! The drive was nice as we made our way.

All Around Update - A Tick Up On Good News
Baby Max update:
A&N went to the most recent fetal medicine appointment and news is on the upswing a bit. The ultrasound showed that although the mass has increased in size slightly, that the artery also has increased in size and blood flow is significantly better. The tumor is still there and it’s grown but so has the aorta and the left side of his heart IS PUMPING!! It’s looking really good, as far as we could see today.
He’s a big, active guy and very healthy, despite the heart tumors. He is growing in every other way and the lower chamber is activated and pumping. All of these are good things to hear. We’re not out of the woods yet.
B&B's recent upheavel in their lives.
I totally forgot that daughter #1 and her family, on Labor Day were visited by ONG (gas company), out of the blue. Apparently someone reported they smelled gas in front of their house so ONG came out, tested and yes gas leak and pulled their meter. They were in a state of shock and told that ONG would fix the outside lines but the inside was their problem, their cost. Their lives right were not in a place to handle that cost and since Labor Day they've been without hot water, taking showers where they can, boiling water (electric range) to do dishes. Well, yesterday with another meeting with ONG (I don't know exact details,) ONG is paying for ALL OF IT!!!
Sis, small update:
They did the biopsy a bit early and she might get to go home earlier than expected. The test results may be at least 10 days out. She's lonely and bored sitting there in her room and apparently neither of her children have come to see her or her hubby. I'm guilty there too, but Covid and my knee are hindering that visit for me. The hospital she is in has the most horrendous parking and I'm not sure I can manage the walk. I might be able to go with daughter #2 today if she drops me off at the door. Daughter #1 went to see her yesterday.
