The random ramblings of a perpetual procrastinator. These are the life & times of a nursing home CNA navigating the ups & downs of living with someone who's living with a disability. A sometimes amusing, sometimes bittersweet look at my journey into real adulthood.

Come on Thursday!

Why am I so excited for Thursday?  Two reasons -

First & foremost, I have the day off!  Yay!  I work this weekend, so I have off.  Although that seems normal enough you must remember I used to work for slave drivers, so I haven't had a whole day off for working the weekend in over a year.  At the old job I got to leave a few hours early one afternoon when I worked a full day on the weekend.  Bleh.  Thankfully, those days are over.

Tomorrow I plan to enjoy the gorgeous weather we're having right now.  It's supposed to be 78 & sunny with no humidity.  If it's anything like today, the dog & I aren't coming inside at all!  I've got weeds to whack & an earwig problem to fix.  The little buggers better run because I've got some repellent & I'm spraying the perimeter of my whole damn house!

Second, we're wrapping up DJ's birthday festivities tomorrow night.  We're having dinner with some friends of ours.  DJ's birthday was Tuesday - but in our house birthdays last all week!  We started on Saturday when my parents & sister came over.  We had Chinese take-out & ice cream cake. 

Unfortunately, I had to work last night on his actual birthday, but his family & a few friends took him out...for Chinese.  He would eat Chinese every day if he could.

In case you were wondering, we will not be keeping up with the Chinese tradition.  Tomorrow night we're going for seafood.  A seafood buffet - with 3 hungry boys.  What am I getting myself into??  It'll be fun though, & that's all that matters.


  1. Oh, how I miss having regular days off! I know exactly how you felt about not having time off during the week to compensate for working the's shameful how much overtime all of us lab techs have had to work this year :( But, I shall live vicariously through your day off and seafood fiasco! Enjoy!!

  2. I hope you have a wonderful day off!
