Sigh. Life can be such a bitch.

I got a message on my phone today from my Richmond RE. Apparently he wants to see both of us for the consult. It has been over a year since he has seen us, so I guess it makes sense. Why they could not have told me earlier, is beyond me. It is still a pain in the butt because my schedule and his schedule do not coincide very often. Our consult will likely be in March now. That is the first time I am likely to get time off.

On the bright side, my day off will actually be a day off. I have time to get caught up and relax. That is a gift, really.

I talked to my mother today and got an update on my grandfather. Apparently the oncologist gave him 3-6 months. My grandmother is apparently in denial, but she did only hear about the time line yesterday. I guess she can be allowed some time to deal with this. Hopefully she will let hospice in before he is discharged from the hospital. I think she could use it. We will see.

Work was crazy, and all of are are feeling the stress. All of my co-workers seem really defeated lately, and I have not seen a lot of sympathy from management. Trying to stick with it and hoping that it gets better.

Tomorrow should be a decent day. If nothing else, because I have tomorrow off.

I hear ya on the schedule 'mixing'...I don't know when we'll both have off at the same time, but I've got a few months to plan it out. And days off that are actually 'off' are wonderful!
