I have been off of work since last Wed. it has been WoNdErFuL!! On Thursday I went to work for 6 hours to "special" a friend of mines daughter, it was a great experience and Destinee delivered in 3 short hours, she was amazing, and her mom (Venus) and Andrea (Michaels mom) were such a big help.
Friday I got to baby sit Joaquin aka Jac Jac, 12 weeks old, what an amazing age, The Cpl and I babysat him from 1p-10p, we had so much fun, we played with him, and fed him and snuggled with him for 9 hours it was a little piece of heaven.
Saturday was a girls day and we had a Move and Booze day, we went and saw Sex Drive, which was completely hilarious, and I am sure the little bit of vodka and lemonade helped ;) That movie is absolutely quotable, and a must see.. They have killer lines like "the one wearing a belt for a mini skirt" Ok, guess you had to be there. Then we went to Kris's house and played Wii and ate dinner and polished off a bottle of wine.
Sunday I woke up and made waffles with blueberry topping, bacon, eggs and hash browns for everyone, what a wonderful breakfast it was!! YaY!! For breakfast it is my favorite meal... Then we lounged all day, I read, and napped and watched some football... We carved pumpkins later that night, Jami came over and brought some cider, and we listened to halloween music on the tv, it was a really good time!
Monday the girls and I met for tea, and a tea house, it was a fun time.
Today so far has been the best day yet from my time off... It started with me waking up feeling good (will discuss in another paragraph) I took the dog to get her nails done and her face cleaned up a bit, and wouldn't you know she by far is the cutest dog I have ever seen?? I just love her so much, and then I met the cleaning lady at the condo, let her in to get to work and started on my shopping venture. My plan is to have the entire house finished before we host the welcome home party for The Cpl. I bought a desk for the office, and everything that we needed for the office, I straightened up the guest room, moved around furniture, put bedding on etc. I bought a coffee table and end table for me "living quarters" The Cpl helped me put things up that needed to be hung. I then went to the condo around 730 and inspected the house cleaning, it looked immaculate, if your in need of house cleaners, just ask me for the info, I was blown away by the sight of the house. I then came home we ate dinner all of us home together, and then I finished my book "Change of Heart" by Jodi Piccoult.
One last side note, so I have been ill for quite some time now, I have been to the doctor, and we have run a zillion tests, well I got the news on Friday that I have Mono AGAIN!!! However it explains so much, my sleeping for almost 3 days straight, the swollen lymph nodes later in the day, the headaches, etc etc etc I could go on and on, I can't believe I didn't suspect it sooner, since this is my 2nd round with it... The good news is, my doc said I am fine to work as long as, I am getting plenty of rest, no kissing patients (LOL), no sharing drinks, food etc. and no contact sports, or accidental mishaps of patients legs spearing me in the abdomen.. ha ha ha... Hooray for a diagnosis finally!!!
