Yesterday while shopping I picked up a packet of instant milk coffee thingamagig because Yuriko, my tandem partner for Japanese, drinks it. Last night, while I was sewing I suddenly wanted to drink milk coffee and instead of brewing a cup or two, I used the instant thing and ... OMG ... I have become my mom!!! For as long as I can remember, my mater is drinking those instant cups of whatever there is. I mean I have mocked her!!! I have made fun of it ... and now with 40, I'm finally just like my mater. *hangs head*

This has been the week from hell all in all. Last Saturday, while being out and about with the dogs, Cenour took a tumble (more of a somersault really) and landed on his already lame foot. I nursed him during the weekend with massages and warm water treatments, but all seemed fine and he used his foreleg as usual. THough to make sure everything was A-Okay, we went to the vet on Monday immediately but there were no broken bones, stressed tendons, NADA.
However, since Wednesday he is limping and not using his right front leg. We went to the vet again and now he is on pain medication, but no reason was found what is really wrong. He was x-rayed again, everything seems fine. BUT! He had a thorn right above his anus and that is now swollen and infected. I really, really am insane with worry about my little Mr. Stupido. But heis eating properly, gets the infection washed and flushed and rinsed with a suringe and hopefully it will all be over soon. If it is not one thing, it's something else and 2008 already held enough of puppy worries for me, thank you very much. For the next two days I have to give him his pain medication myself, so that will be a challenge - Cenour doesn't have a super treat apart from cheese and he always, I mean ALWAYS !!!, knows when I have put something in there for he artfully eats around whatever is hidden in his piece of cheese and spits it out. *head on desk*

Can I go hide in bed now?

While driving the porcelain bus more than once today, my mater phoned me to ask how I was doing. Telling her that I didn't feel too good and on my way to the bathroom, she continued to tell me about how her life sucks and that she is thinking about leaving my stepfather ... yet again. I don't know what else she said as I was hugging the toilet again but that is the gist of it. With no word whatsoever (well the time my ear actually was at the phone) she mentioned she is sorry or something that I feel so shitty. Nope, not a word.

Sometimes I fear I will become like her, after all she is my mother and we share about 50% of our genetic make-up and I already have caught myself imitating some of her gestures AARRGGHHH!!! I mean I do it unconsicously but still ... if this is already in the genetics I don't want to know what else is inherited. *shudders*

Two years ago, we had several mice on our floor of apartments. This year, we have them again ... all because the idiot workers roused them from behind the marble casing of the outside of the house when they took them down ... and now they are in here .. in our flat. ARGH!!!

So I have to get rid of them .. as cute as they are, it is untenable to have them here. One packet of M&Ms got already nibbled on ... and that was sealed up :s

My parents are both at home since yesterday and while my stepfather is still not doing anything, my mom is working again ... and bitches about it. *sigh* Sometimes I just wish I could tune them out or tell her to shut it on the phone. Really, the way she is carrying on it seems I was responsible for all the pain she is in. Must be the full moon...

At last, I have some spare time to update a little bit. Today is another *fun* packed day - ha ha ha.
This afternoon I will update at last my sites, esp. m.i.t.m..

My mom is out of the hospital for good now but still feels quite weak, she will start working in a week or two (with a broken arm) as she doesn't like being confined to her home. My stepfather is still at hopsital. They have started therapy so that he can at least walk on crutches soon. I have decided that I won't be at the hospital every day from now on. I need to get my life back under control somewhat and I really don't care about all the complaints my stepfather does - about the staff as well as about me and Olly.

I don't know what to say ... I mean here I am rushing back to Germany from my one and only holiday in years, busting about 400 € for getting back and then my parents treat me like shit. Complaining, nagging, telling me I look like shit and have not lost weight. Then my stepfather after he woke up from a coma, that he thinks I look ridiculous in historic clothes (he never saw a pic of me in these clothes) and all in all telling me my husband is an asshole. And here I am ... dropping everything to be there for my parents in their hour of need and how do they thank me??
I should have known, I really should have known ... but I'm a child of my education, I was taught to respect my parents. But obviously someone never told them that they should respect ME and mine.
I'm really fed up with them. Next time something like this happens, to hell with conscience I won't be rushing back.

Well it seems the old bastard has done it yet again. He skipped off the boat on the River Styx. My stepfather is out of intensive care and even though he is still groggy he is lucid and very much alive.
He will need to have a long recuperation period but the doctors seem to think he will be doing just fine.
I'm relieved. I already saw myself co-habiting with my mom if he hadn't made it. My mom is that way, she would move in with no qualms whatsoever.
Oh well, at least they are out of immediate danger. I'm glad of that. Even though of all the hard feelings and bad blood between us, they are my parents after all.

I will be off now, business is calling. Then later on I have to be at the Studienkreis and from there on I go straight to my sewing circle.
Full day ahead - as always.

@ Elf ... if you want to call, please od it tomorrow (Wednesday) night, tonight Olly is probably going to go to bed early because of a hell of a day at school and I won't be in till after 11 pm. Tata

Since yesterday morning we didn't have DSL ... because we had switched from really expensive ISDN to analogue again with our DSL connection staying as it was. Well what did those assholes do???
They cut off the DSL and kept the ISDN.
And of course being Friday and all they couldn't be sure if there was a technician available. So I humiliated myself and asked my parents to use their computer for the m.i.t.m. reviewbook ID change today ... they un-graciously allowed it ... I felt like a beggar begging for a crump of bread.
Well I could use it for 2 hours max ...

BUT!!! I just got a phone call .. I'm back online ... Needed to get rid of the ISDN splitter chicanery but now it is all back to schedule ... now back to m.i.t.m. and the reviewbooks.


ETA: But boy, I felt like shit and also very angry that my parents made me beg. Jesus Christ on a crutch but these two are one bunch of assholes. When I phoned my mother to tell her everything is okay, my mother was asking me why the hell did I call her in the first place, I should have known they would fix it. Jeesh, I'm not a bloody mindreader or psychic, with the track record Telecom has with our account, it could have been Monday or Tuesday till we got hooked up again.
Atm I'm really pissed off at my parents. I always think they always expect something from me but I have no clue what - my eternal gratitude? to cower in their presence? NO CHANCE!

After a week of lazy idleness, I have a busy week ahead. Tomorrow morning I need to start on my sewing projects so I will prepare the update tonight. Actually will do it now as it is already twenty to eleven over here.

To Do List
m.i.t.m. update
washing clothes
hefting the bodice of the chemise
sewing the skirt of the chemise
cutting and hefting the bodice & skirt of light gown


Yesterday, I had a long talk with Robert about our childhoods, where I came up with the following: "Every thing that happened to me happened for a reason so that I became the person I am today." But I still can't forgive my mother.
