Weekend's over! :o)

Thank you, Jesus, that another long weekend of work is over! I think the moon must be full, or getting full, as the nursing home was very busy this weekend. Lots of viruses .... throwing up and sick stomachs... yuk. Behaviors were escalating... one lady slapped my coworker three times and put a huge bruise on her arm! Families seemed "needier" than ever.... walking our poor legs off! I know, I know... that's what we are there for and that's what we get paid for. But boy, am I glad this weekend is behind us!

I got home Saturday night to see my dogs. ( Son and a friend were checking on them throughout the day for me) Big dog had found an ink pen and chewed it up. Guess what was all over the carpet? Big black ink spots!!!! We are getting ready to put our house on the market and were trying to decide whether to replace the carpet or not. Guess what? Big dog has decided for us! New carpet will be in our near future. Hopefully, dog has helped us sell the house!!!! :o)

On a good note, my left chest is feeling much better. The pain is almost gone, for which I am very thankful. Dear son is still sick. (has been coughing, etc. since Christmas) We finally talked him into seeing the doctor this morning. They say this current illness is new, not the same thing he has had since Christmas (he now has a fever). They are calling it the flu. He has a Rx for good cough medicine and an order for REST for about five days. Do you think he will rest? Why, NO! Please get well, son!

Hubby will be moving into his new apartment this week. I plan to seek new employment this week so I can move with him. I hope to be with him by the end of March. I'm getting very excited about the move, but will miss the extra room we have here. We plan to leave the house set up , though, so we can come back on our days off and "move around". :o)

The yo yo maker (see post below) is awesome! I sat down Thursday night and made my first yo yo and it was absolutely perfect. I recommend it to everyone who wants to have a neat travel project to take along with them. Yo yo's are instant gratification... just so much fun!

That's about it from me this morning. Got to get my nails redone today. They are red, grown out, and ugly. Must have good looking nails for a job interview this week. Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Hi Penny,
I have been thinking about you and wondering where you where. Thanks for dropping by.

Wow, what a weekend! Everyone seems to be sick. I think the weather is a day 70 and the next day 35. I know you are getting excited about your move. (Your Mom, too.)

I'm glad your weekend is over.. Your brother came over to put your new address in my GPS thing... I laughed and told him, I think I will be able to find you.. He told me you will be living very near the golf course... Good for Billy!!

Poor fiance! I feel terrible about being here at work and not taking care of him... This is a prime example of why I'm excited about working at home... Wish I could be there for him. I know you'll take care of him though. Thank goodness for mommy's!

Sounds like a rough weekend! I'd be glad to be past it too. Good luck in the job hunt -- I know God has something just perfect for you.
