I finally get a call from my older sisters. It was a nice call. At the end my bro in law says - hey - we're family - call us... Really? Is that why all of you were silent this last year while I went through some face the wall stuff? Phony. Thank goodness for my faith to sustain me in confidence!!

I am very private living in a very private world. Didn't plan it that way, just how life circumstances have turned out. I have adapted and adjusted for years now and am perfectly happy and am at a wonderful state of peace. So I have had zero of my absolute privacy since the health spa 12.3. I am thankful for my nice neighbor up from California for Dec to care for my horses for 3 weeks while I was on Doc restrictions. She has done a great job.

So I told her Monday I'm ready to take over (like Apr after 3 weeks past surg). The extra walking (carrying just one flake of hay at a time) is nothing but healthy for me. Paid her for 3 wks.

But being the strange hyper Californians that they are, they don't know how to sit still during retirement. They are always scurrying about like they are insane. They have a couple of half million dollar places and a diesel pusher RV and are pretty fat on their government pensions, but can't stop to smell the roses. Always rustling about like two rats.

Now I can't get rid of her. Hover mother. She drives over yesterday afternoon in her little Kabota to the barn after I'm done feeding then calls me. I'm out front clearing snow off my truck so as to get out if I need to. I tell her everything is fine and the exercise feels good and is pleasing to my Docs. She says she wants to help in the morning feeding but I tell her I've got it. I appreciate the concern but I know there's more going on....

So today after talking to my sisters I try and catch up for my dinner by cooking off some ribs on the bbq to throw in the crock pot. Here she comes up the back from the barn all cheery and gives me a care package/dinner while I'm out on the deck cooking. Hair standing up on my neck cause of huge invasion of privacy, but I bite my tongue. I mean she's giving me a dinner right? Keep in mind there's almost 2' of snow on the ground and its snowing hard. She's like a time clock - which I freaking hate. Maybe I don't want to feed at 4pm, maybe I want to feed at 4.20... That's really nice to bring me some dinner, but I know there's more going on...

A) She has already told me she and her hubby eat tv dinners. I never eat that ****. Why don't you cook lady?
B) She told me yesterday she went to town and wanted to get her traditional Christmas Eve dinner of Menudo and Tamales, but Safeway Deli didn't have any. So she bought canned tamales. Really???
C) The Care Package is freaking overboiled broccoli, mushy rice, and other **** from a tv dinner. A tamale from a can. Really??? And no chocolate?? lol I mean she's a 4'6" Mexican lady, retired with too much time on her hyper hands, and doesn't cook her own tamales??? And here I'm cooking off these beautiful racks of beef ribs in front of her... rofl
D) Thankfully I had clothes on when she walked up and I was out turning the ribs because usually...

So then she insists she has to feed for evening. I should be (and was) thankful but again... I want my private world back!! I don't want to punch her time clock!!!

Gonna have to start closing the back gate here soon if she keeps up...

I know I'm supposed to accept this gracefully (and do) but there's more than being nice to me going on.... Either she hates her husband, has this misplaced mother gene, or is truly borderline crazy in retirement...
Charlie,

I'm truly thankful you made it through one hell of a tough year.

And as for your neighbor it sounds like she's sweet on you.

Thanx man! I know some of that sounds ungrateful, and I don't mean to be that way. Its just it has been non-stop zero privacy since 12.3. Nurses round the clock poking and prodding, stabbing you with belly shots 3 times/day, asking about your turds, measuring your **** in a bottle every couple of hours, and other humiliating stuff. And then a few more weeks at home needing help with feeding the herd that is turning into an obsessive compulsive hyper neighbor sicheation.
3 weeks is enough. I want my world to return to its peaceful uninterrupted state, you know?

Good morning TMSers. Charlie I'm really glad you're feeling better. I had to laugh about the little Mexican lady interrupting your hermit way of life. But you're right, never trust a Mexican lady that eats tamales out the can. Something ain't right. Sounds like she's lying about her ethnicity. Lol

Christmas is over. Kinda upsetting. It has been a few years since I could spend all of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with my family. There's at least 4 different gatherings we have to attend every year and I've been working for a few of them the last few years. Kids seem happy. Family seems happy. All I right with the world.
