a short note....
hey everyone. Still here just been very busy! Of course work gets super busy as soon as i am down to the end of my time. I have 4 days left! (yeah!!) Not sure how i feel about the fact that they are actually trying to get me to "train" the two girls who will replace me. I was contracted not employed so...... i kind of feel they should figure out their own groove as things got changed and the set up is not really pedi-friendly for the person giving the services. (just ask my neck and back!) But these assumptions are a few reasons for making my decision to leave so easy.
When we are not working or cleaning or doing yardwork around the rain we have been traveling south a bit to help with family situations. Hubby's 87 year young grandmother fell the other day and broke both her hip and collarbone. Not doing well. They have decided to operate this afternoon, total hip replacement, but cannot do anything for the shoulder. Of course dad is beside himself and feels completely at fault (as if) being the son. Grandad is convinced she will not pull through and already seems so lonely. Sadly she will not be able to return to the assisted living home so after 75 years together they are going to be separated. This breaks all our hearts. The grandparents are fabulous folks, strong and full of life. They only stopped camping 3 years back, driving 3 years back (grandad is 93), they play music, compose, etc. I have always thought hubby and my relationship kind of resembles them, both relationship to eachother and our personalities. So keep Bessie in your thoughts today for skilled surgeons hands, low to no pain and healing! (and to grandad who's missing his better half)
Enjoy these summer like rains and weather!
