It was a whirlwind weekend just past. I had Friday off due to endless conferences the previous nights. On Friday I got the oil changed in my car. I picked up meds for the surgery next month. And I enjoyed the sunshine. But, Saturday I ran up to Quincy. It was time to visit Mom and the side benefit was that my dad's brother, and his wife, or another way of saying it is--my uncle and aunt from Virginia were visiting. I treasure my times with them. It is a last contact with someone who knew my dad as a child. Since my dad has been gone over 30 years I hunger for memories of him.
But, today it is Monday and back to work. It will be a busy, busy week. I am catching up on some stuff that had gotten behind last year when my high school student quit. I had to move my busiest day of student check outs from last week to today because of the doctor's appointment last Wednesday. It always sounds like a good idea until I am faced with a busy week.
Now that the surgery is pinned down, I am going strong in preparation for the book fair the week before the week of Thanksgiving. Busy, busy times.
And now it is just getting through a busy week and knowing that the week that follows will be busy with medical appointments from ultra sounds to the dentist.
And this isn't much of a post, but it is what is on my mind.....
