Doesn't it feel good to enter after a long absence?
We were busy way out of town all week and I had no time to write. Got to see my niece again and spend some quality time with my parents, and my brother & sister-in-law. Kylie was dedicated at their church on Sunday, and then we had a party at their house to celebrate. Then we drove to Spokane on Monday to meet up with Ryan's old friends from work who all bailed or didn't answer at the last minute. Literally. After we drove 4.5 hours and they had been planning the get-together for 2 months. So we drove up to the town I used to work in (the middle of nowhere) and met one of the gals he had wanted to see, who, it turns out, is the daughter of one of the nurses I had worked with at the hospital. After hanging with her a couple hours we drove to the hospital and said hi to the four people who were on, and thankfully weren't too busy to talk. They were glad to see me, but apparently the OB rooms have been shut down for a month-and-a-half and probably will be indefinitely unless business picks up. Sad to see, but so glad we made the move to CA. Otherwise I would have definitely been out of a job. We got home late Tuesday night and I slept all day Wednesday before my shift - yet another busy one and yet another C-section. Scheduled, though.
Fighting either allergies or a bit of a cold; it also could be all the smoke I inhaled from the forest fires in Eastern Washington. We even saw bits of soot floating by on the wind! Couldn't see the fires, but there was a haze and the smell of smoke through most of our trip on that side. I'm hoping some good sleep and vitamins will kick whatever I've got.
Guess everyone else is pretty busy too. Seema and Barb, we need to figure out a good day for the Fair! I work, and we have other things planned for some of the days it's open, so I'll PM you the few dates that will work for me. After blowing a lot of money this last week, we've got to tighten down the budget for awhile. I really enjoy the free entertainment at fairs - in fact, we did the Fair with my parents on Friday. They didn't have any acrobat shows, but we did watch the Mutton Busting (4-7 year-olds riding sheep like a rodeo).
Off to make some veggie burgers. I am working the next three nights so will be busy.
