Default My week and what you doing this weekend

Just to update all on where and what I've been doing.

Derrick and I went to the Governor's Conference for Disabilities Monday through Wednesday it was really a great time. I had some help this time, along with Derrick I had two of my PSV's down there. One was helping me
a lot with my booth. It was so nice. I had seen, after talking to her a
women who is blind with a dog. Trying to walk along and at booth's that
were unattended because the people were in the Keynote area. Which
is allowed, I don't do that because I know people come through the booths
because its quiet and slower, just like she was doing. She was having so
much trouble I decided to help her.
With no one at booths, I hated to leave her and go back to mine. So I decided to just stay with her and guide her through. Well about half way through the booths the regular time for the booths to start there time came.
So my booth had people, I was pulled both ways, but chose to stay were I was. But my Volunteer came just then saw my booth unattended and took over. So it was so neat.
Anyway, we had a great time, I made some great contacts thanks to my volunteer. And saw some old friends.

I have been on the phone the last two days returning phone calls, and taking them. And relaxing, I am technically off.

So my weekend, is taking Derrick to work tomorrow, and then relaxing at home.
And taking and picking Derrick up on Sunday, if he is going. He has a cold that is strong right now. So we will see.

I have mine still but its not as bad.

Also on top of all else on Monday right as I was going to pick Derrick up. I figured out one of the dogs had to glue mouse traps stuck to her paws. So off to the vet we went. She got them off, and it wasn't to bad a price.

Thankfully I think all three dogs now know not to go near those.

My weekend is off to a good start.
I'm going to my elder couple friends' home this morning to help her make "Cowboy Candy", i.e. candied jalapeno peppers, in pretty half-pint jars, for holiday gifts baskets giving ... and preparing dinner for them for this evening.

Wishing you each and all here a fine weekend and enjoyable well-being.

Sixty hours a week is a long daily grind. I'd sleep on my day off too. Does he work that long all year around?

I hope that you have a nice weekend. BF

No he is not sure how long more he will be up there. And this is only
the second week he has gotten a Saturday. So he is just this week
working the second one.

He is hoping for at least one more, if they should lay off before xmas.

We will see. I'm not sure they are laying off so soon. Just a feeling.

He is also driving at least 1 1/2 hours one way, I can't talk him into staying
more than one, sometimes two nights a week. I am hoping next week
to talk at least two. This week he needed to come home for our dogs.

Well just learned my husband is going to the area he works in early tomorrow.
He is taking our daughter-in-law up to get her car. She loaned it to her father, this week on Wednesday so he could get back to the Chicago area.

Now I have a nice husband because originally thinking the father was in the hospital up there. He was going to help get him home on Wednesday, but it
had turned out he was at our area instead.

So they will leave real early to get the car. She just has to get up.
And be ready.

I'm pretty sure she will be.

Derrick sounds much better tonight. And was told at work yesterday if
he doesn't feel lots better, not to worry about Sunday.

I think he wont be working on Sunday. His and my choice both.
The lady that used to be his boss. How I love that woman.

Unhappy sad times

there has been a very sad event in my life. i first got the news when i was profoundly depressed and felt devastated. i quit topamax and my mood seems improved but it does not take the grief away and other feelings... i don't want to be more precise. nutshell: loss and grief.

today, i was also very hard hit by news of the tragic fate of the poor nurse who answered the prank call regarding Princess Kate's wellbeing. my guess is she was already suffering, and that was the last straw for her.

plan for weekend:
try to enjoy whatever moments of laugher with my parents that i can. as tomorrow is a public holiday it's like two sundays and we will all be staying in... and

watching the snow, if it keeps snowing. (today we had the first snow.)

say some prayers for those who have moved on.

that is all.

What a horrible prank that those two DJ's pulled. I didn't know anything about it because I was busy on Thursday,and I missed Fridays news.

I can't put into words my grief about the loss of the nurse,and how sad this is. BF
