I'm home again. TSA, bless their hearts, violated my luggage again. I'm sort of getting used to it. I know they opened up the coconut oil. It was leaking out of the sealed containers when I got to my final stop in NKenai. I arrived on Saturday night.
Mum isn't well at all. I cannot explain in a kinder way. She is sick. However, she is very stubborn and as today is only Tuesday, I am being stonewalled again. The house is a disaster once more--boxes do not help clutter much. I had to rearrange things so I could fit myself in. I had thought I had brought too much stuff. I think I did, I needed more light clothing and less sturdy warm stuff. Marking a calender for leaving here, but not home.
Landing on Alaskan soil always brings me joy. The knowledge that my body is now where my soul belongs is incredibly peaceful and happy. It is a good thing the land and some of the experiences are so positive. This summer might not be!
The septic is being dug up. Mom's chemo is wiping her out and she refuses to acknowledge it. The drive is a complete wreck. The phone line was cut and won't be fixed til maybe tomorrow (Wed). Mum's garden fence was taken out and is now buried in a hole. Why is it people bury things instead of tossing them in the trash? Or is that the same thing? Personally, running across buried chicken wire in ages past might be stressful on the person digging. I mowed mom's yard. It isn't a lawn, not at all lawn like!
Today, I went with her to a test. Gods, she needs to slow down and let someone else do something for her. Her driving is worse than ever, her parking defies logic, and her attitude about how she is right and everyone else isn't drives me nuts already. I'll write more on this in 'I'm Alive'. I'm so glad I got my Amazon card!! I will be able to get more books. Which I will need.
