It is the last day of my vacation, and back to work until the week of Thanksgiving for me. I took three days of vacation for the Thanksgiving week off, so taking three days vacation, and you get the two holiday days(working for county government is sweet sometimes) I will get nine days of vacation time. This month's vacation was just for me and my husband. My husband has vacation next week also. He thought that I took two weeks off from work. I can't do that, I would have so much to get caught up with if I took two weeks off in a row. So next month's vacation will be family related. My son will come during that Thanksgiving week whenever he can. I will cook for the men, since I can't eat anything I would make for them. So I am definitely doing this because I love them both so much. I don't know who else will be here, I will just offer to my parents and sister, that they can come and visit also, or we could meet them for a lunch date. OK they would eat and I would have a diet pepsi, no ice. Around here you also have to factor in the winter weather. My dad doesn't like to plan too much around the Thanksgiving week because we seem to get a snowstorm.
As for today, I already baked my organic antibiodictic free chicken breasts for a few days. I also put in four baker potatoes for my husband. I will have to shower and wash my hair. I would also like to walk my dog today for one mile or so. I can't wait to get back in the routine of CURVES during my lunch breaks either. I like my routine.
I called my parents yesterday morning around 7 am to wish them a good drive to Minto, ND and to check on my mom's root canal stuff. Apparently she has been in pain off and on for about a month. She is getting it taken care of tomorrow in Duluth. They will have to go through a pre-existing cap, that is why she has to go to a specialist. I had that done, it saved me thousands of dollars and my tooth, though it was an expensive procedure. My county doesn't have dental insurance so it was out of my pocket. I can't believe that my mother has been fucking around with this tooth for a month. She knows that infection so close to the brain is something you don't fuck with. My mom is a retired nurse. She said that she can't even brush her teeth now on that side. I also asked why are they going to see my aunt, with her tooth pain and all, the ride being so annoying. She said that they wouldn't get out there if they didn't go now until Spring, and my aunt might pass away. So good for you mom, riding through the fucking pain, and taking a chance with your health. My mom's health is important and I just wish she would take care of herself more. Now I will get down from my soapbox.
On to lighter things...my husband and I ordered a digital camera for the mom of our second granddaughter, just because we can. We ordered one just like ours, with a bigger memory card, just like ours, but she also gets a case. It will be sent to her directly. I just love surprises. When we were there, she was using a cheap disposable camera you have to take in for development. It makes me just grin thinking how surprised and happy she will be when she opens it up. Doing something for someone who doesn't expect it is awesome.
