Dad is so exhausted. I am thinking about taking a week off work and coming by mid morning (so as to give me a little vacation) and leaving after getting Mom to bed. Will talk to sister about scheduling and strategizing.
I am planning THREE events: Christine's long time friends from music camp will come by Sunday night (Yay long weekend). My extended family will come over a Saturday afternoon in early June and my sister's family & my parents for Father's Day lunch. (and i am trying to manage my worry about my particularly energetic niblings and my dear landscape. Then hosting Father's day. This is much for us. Under normal conditions, Christine can only manage so much socializing and she builds up dread in advance. I hope that the approaching anniversaries of her father's birthday, death, and father's day plus the wave of visits can be not overwhelming for her. But that means that i need to be a little proactive.... Not like we were in practice, but now after pandemic.... I am thankful that outside is particularly attractive these days of COVID because our home interior is designed for us to live in comfortably -- not for any additional humans.
Yesterday i spent a good bit of time planning and dealing with details. Yard could have used more time.
