Oh yeah....it's been crazy.
Friday was Tom's visit to the VA hospital for a colonoscopy...woo hoo. Yes he's been the "butt" of jokes all week. Going to see Dr Ben Dover and all.
I went to bed very late 2am friday morning only for him to have to wake up at 5am to drink more juice. Then a quick nap for me until about 7am when it was time to get up and get busy. It's a 2 hour ride to Fayet-nahm from here. Get Miss T on the bus and start out.
We were early....about 10:15 so we checked in and he was taken right on in the Daybed area. She said I had time to get a bite to eat but to be back in that waiting room until they called me.
At 1:30pm I decided I should find some lunch....but first I checked on him. He had just gone into a recovery area (geeesh - a 30 minute procedure????). In about 10 mins she called me back to the area....there he was sitting up fixing a sandwich....with his shirt on backwards!
One polyp removed.....eat more fiber and fruit!
Was a quiet ride home.....I made it just in time to get Tom to the potty and to turn around and head to town to see Miss T's last 10 minutes of her solo practice. Off to dinner with the 'rents for my baby brother's birthday celebration.
If that wasn't enough, one of Miss T's friends called "Let's go Ice Skatin"...so I took her and stayed with them till we left at 10pm.....
Whew! Finally home and bed!
Saturday was tough....I was so tired from the day before. I had also promised to go to the local Spot Pagaent to support a friend and her daughter. The kid was 1st runner up, but that's ok, she already holds a title (and has held many others). She was so sad because last year she was 1st runner up....she said "what am I doing wrong?" and of course we assured her it was NOTHING. The only difference I noticed was in the confidence level of the winner....she ACTED like she WAS very confident.
Aye...Miss T and her school project. She and her BFF were going to do a Bake Sale and buy supplies for the animal shelter with the proceeds....only the BFF mother said at the last minute NO WAY when she found out the local grocery store was already booked for an event. Well, we COULD have gone to another venue.
Thanks.....so we took off to my office and snapped some pictures of her working...filing, answering phones etc...things she had done for me this past summer. Her project was based on "Service". She dolled up 8 pages with information and pictures. I hope it's acceptible...they said that helping parents wasn't allowed. But what do you do when your BFF bails on you at the last minute?
I think I'll turn in early tonight. ExCoworker is in town and we're supposed to meet tomorrow, early...it will be great to see her!
