Catch Up Fridays

(Cathy) Wow, another week has flown by. Did I miss winter? I really think we will meet spring without actually seeing significant snow. I know that that is good for driving and getting to work, (work? what's that?), however, I wonder what this lack of snow and cold will mean for the rest of the year? (Sunshine) Its really strange to have grown up with such harsh conditions for winter all of our lives to now have a winter that is so incredibly mild. I miss the snow and the cold and so do the kids. (Carolin) I don't know if I totally miss the snow. I would love a snow day to catch up at home. It is nice for driving and all week I have been just wearing a hoody.

So, to catch up, I am still at home. Sometimes I can use my hand, but I pay for it. I am supposed to balance out wearing my splint and sling with passive movements so my shoulder will not seize up. The positive thing is that I know my arm will heal in time. I really have a better understanding of those people who do not have the use of a limb. Well, not really as I know I will get the use of my arm back. That must be so frustrating Cathy. We are so much more aware of how amazing our bodies are when something isn't working properly. Cathy, try and relax so you can heal properly. Maybe we will come and bug one day this coming week. That's if you are not too busy.

Sunshine, did Miss Teen Sunshine get her driver's license? Well I called her just before I walked in for work and she said that she failed because she hit the back pylon as she was parallel parking. I felt really bad for her and I was surprised because I really thought that she was ready. I called Mr Sunshine in Vancouver and left a message on his cell phone. He called back when I was on my way to pick her up after work to ask for some insurance information and that's when I was informed that she passed. In the evening when he finally heard my message from earlier that morning he called to say that it sounded like I really believed that she had failed. I guess that she wanted to surprise us when she got home but with time changes and short phone calls everything got a little bit messed up. Well Cathy the short answer to your question is YES!! (Carolin) Yeah for Teen Sunshine.

Carolin, how is your nephew doing? I hope you all are feeling better, too. Our thoughts and prayers and with you all. He is still in the hospital and seems he will remain there for some time still. My mom comes home this coming Wednesday.

It is Saturday afternoon I have been home for 45 minutes. I catered a conference today for 90 people. Morning coffee, mid morning refreshments, then a lunch. I was at the kitchen for 7:00 am and the teenager (who isn't a teenager) came at 10:00 am to help. All went well, I am just tired. I get very stressed over these catered events, I would rather not do them as I am just bone tired from the week. But I don't know how to say NO.

Carolin if you have time this week, lets go and visit the one armed bandit. I think that we could all benefit from spending some time together and I would love to see you girls. Cathy do you have some free time and are you up for some rowdy visitors? The husband is back on the afternoon shift this week, but perhaps Friday night will work.

Time to go get my Jammie's on and lay on the couch.
Have a good week everyone!
