It has not been a very good week but it is behind us now and life does go on. The madness started with work. My technicians have been taking their daily doses of stupid pills which ultimately ends up costing us valuable time and lots of expensive gasoline which causes my boss to rant in his 40 years of military manner.
Add to this technicians who cannot be disciplined without spending the rest of the day pouting and doing inferior work. They fall into the category of men who will "always do what they have always done". And I am the service "manager" who has an extremely hard time managing a group like that. Friday did get here praise God.
Aunt Katie was in the hospital part of the week due to an infection and dehydration. Since being home on oxygen she has not been as active and along with that has not been drinking enough fluids and eating like she should. The hospital took care of all these issues and she went home saturday feeling so much better.
Saturday morning I got up thinking I would get my hair cut while Linda cooked a baked spaghetti for us to take to my daughter Rachel's house. We were barely out of bed when she called saying my youngest grandson Matthew was sick and needed to go to the doctor so we shifted into another gear and rushed over there since we are about 40 miles away. I took them to the doctor while Linda stayed with Kaden and baked their lunch dish. Kaden thought Linda was so cool when he discovered she had a large bag of freshly sliced sharp cheddar cheese. He told her he had not had cheese like that since he was at the beach during the summer so he was in heaven. When he saw she had some left in the bag after finishing the dish he made sure she knew he wanted it left there for him.
This morning Rachel called after we had only been out of bed about an hour and had breakfast on the stove. She said Matthew got worse during the night and needed to go to the emergency room. Knowing it would be over an hour before we could get ready and be there she went to plan B and got her hubby's parents to help her get there. All this time her hubby was at my daughter Karen's home in Rockingham doing some work for them which is about 3 hours away.
So my friends it has been one of those weeks and weekends. I sure hope it went smoother for most of you and I hope to showing up more often now that I have more time. Take care and have a blessed week.
