Did a lot of talking to my husband over the weekend. He agreed to go somewhere quiet with me, away from everyone so we could talk. (I think suggesting he go salmon fishing helped him agree to this.) He went fishing down river a lot leaving me and baby to play in the sand, but at least I had him trapped in the car.:) Anyway I feel I have gotten through to him at least on the most important things. He has agreed to not leave baby and grandma totally alone together. I agreed it would be OK to be right outside working in the yard as long as he is close at hand. He agreed not to let grandma take baby for stroller walks unless he goes with them. Also I am going to try working night shift, so during the day I am sleeping, but there for emergencies. (I started work today but it was only orientation.)
Also talked to grandma. This was harder. I really hurt her feelings when I said her memory was getting bad. I won't go over the whole conversation but she understands (for the moment at least) that she will be helping my husband with the babysitting and not doing it by herself.
With work starting and the home study course I have taken on I won't be writing for a long while. I will probably check in and read others posts once in a while. But if you don't hear from me, know I am still around reading once in a while.
Lyn, especially thank you for your support. I think I just read you weren't feeling well so I hope that changes, and you feel better soon. Remember you have to take care of yourself first, before you can properly care for others..............................Inert
