Back to work today after a weekend that didn’t hold much rest.
Friday night I was up way too late talking to Rachelle. We haven’t talked like that for ages. I stayed overnight with her and Asen. Another thing I haven’t done – ever. And it was good. Asen hooked me up into the internet and even got up early with me and made me a fantastic breakfast. I will accept pampering any time.
The course I attended on Saturday was excellent. About midmorning, we were served hot cinnamon buns that were fantastic. The lectures were also top notch. Learned a lot of little tips that will make it easier and safer to treat the elderly in our practice. I often talk about the children I treat, cause I love the kids, but folks at the other end of life have their own unique needs.
Going to Saskatoon always involves seeing my kids that live there. This time I made a trip down to the Midtown Mall when I got there on Friday evening. Annette was working. Since she is assistant manager and the store was short staffed, she took Kieran with her and went in to help out. I met them there and Kieran and I went for a walk around the mall. It was very quiet – like dead quiet. That was good for a couple of wanderers. I did go into one store since I thought I would check out some sweaters. As we looked Kieran said, “There are so many clothes in here, there are so many clothes.” You could almost hear the panic in his voice – there must be somewhere better than this. So I did not browse more than a few minutes. Then we found the Sony store. A Bug’s Life was on the big screen. He squatted down in front of it and before we knew, it was time to go back and pick up his mom.
Last thing I did on Saturday was to take Patrick out for supper at Alexander’s. We had a good talk about the state of the developing world and then went down the street to have a peek at the new little grrl at Becky and Jerry’s place. Wow. What a sweet little thing.
Sunday – From worship practice at 8:30 till the end of the church’s annual meeting about 4, I was at church and busy. I guess I was busy before since we had a potluck dinner there and I had stuff to get ready. Chicken curry – actually pretty easy since I put it on the night before in the slow cooker.
So today, when I finally finished work, I was tired. It was a crazy busy day at work too. Nothing went according to schedule. Nothing was easy. Seems like we always cram so much into the days before we have a few days off. I am almost looking forward to this little procedure since I have booked a week off to recuperate – unbruise.
