My weekend will consist of hearing ad nauseam what a perfect life my older sister, Monica, has with her perfect husband, perfect children and perfect house

The Latin expression ad nauseam means "to the point of nausea", where one (perhaps metaphorically) feels physically sick from hearing it over and over again.
