 Mark and I enjoyed the day off.  We slept in, went swimming, played basketball in the pool, and attempted shooting off some fireworks at home.  However the rain won but we enjoyed being silly in the rain.  Tonight was going to be a lake night.  We will have to wait to see if the weather clears.  We are enjoying being young together.

Onto my uncle, he decided a few months ago to leave his wife and move near me.  He never asked if I would help care for him. I'm busy enough with my brother and my regular responsibilities.  He has 3 boys.  It's time they step up.  I helped with his mom and I also helped with my mom in her final days.  I'm not trying to be cold hearted but I think and am pushing for his boys to step forward.  Bobby and Steven are single.   Bobby's kid is grown.  Simply, I'm not his kid so I'm forcing the issue by not being available to run to the hospital or deal with his every need.  I gave the case manager his kids phone number.  Thank goodness I've learned the value of NO!  I'm not turning my back on family but it's time.  Time his sons stepped up.  Mark understands why I'm doing it.  He and I just got married and it's time we enjoy life and play.  His boys rarely if ever check on me.  They try to take me for granted.  I've told Paul I'm busy with my grandson, work, and my life obligations.  I've told his sons.  Today I made a stance.  It feels good.  They best learn to step up or help get their dad in an assisted living facility.  

Now what play time activity can I find with the rain?!?!  Fun is calling my name.
