We have power back but no Wi-Fi, so no TV. I will need to clean and restock the fridge. But I’m thrilled. I’m sick of eating out. Which is why when I travel I always prefer to get an Airbnb. I like cooking and I like eating healthy and having control over the food I eat.
Yesterday we ordered ihop and for some reason the steak and eggs breakfast was sweet. As if they added maple syrup to the steak. It was kind of gross but I ate it. I’m generally not a huge sweet and savory mixed together person. I’m a strict no pineapple on my pizza gal.
Brad and I also got in a huge fight two nights ago. He actually left the hotel and went back to his cold, dark house for the night. Then came back the next day when his house dipped to 35 and he found himself bored and cold. Plus he’s on a well so he didn’t even have water. He doesn’t have power yet. So he’s going to keep staying at the hotel.
I like it here but I’m ready to go home and resume normal life. I have so much work to do. Plus Brad’s back is acting up again. I am sure having sex is making his back worse. And I hate feeling like his pain is a direct cause of me.
I got word from my lawyer that my mother’s old boyfriend will let me perform the autopsy under 3 conditions. 1) I pay for it. 2) He get a copy of the report. 3) I pay for the storage that the mortuary is charging him for her stay so far.
It makes zero sense to me. If he was forbidding me from doing the autopsy to the point I needed to hire a lawyer and go to court then why does he want a copy? Plus it is absolutely his fault that there are storage fees as I have asked for this from the very beginning and he has been the one stalling it. So we are going to court because I refuse all but the first term.
I told my lawyer that if he wants a copy of the report he can help pay for the autopsy. Otherwise he gets nothing from me. Just like he hasn’t given me a copy of her will and trust.
I can’t believe this man. I can’t believe his actions. But he has to account for the judgement of his own soul. That’s not for me to decide.
All I know is that none of this makes any sense to me. So I’m not going to worry about it. Just going to keep plugging along. If the only closure I’m going to get from my mom’s sudden death is just knowing why she died from exactly then that’s all the closure I get. And I have to be ok with that, like it or not. 😔
