A Long Weekend

It was a long weekend, sadly not in the way that one might usually say it -- where an extra day was added. Just a lot done, a lot of annoying things.
I worked on Saturday, they shifted me to post partum, which is a bummer in itself. One of my patients called ALL the time, asking me to help her change a diaper (so one time I taught, and the second time her husband was there and I taught him and then I said they were on their own), one time to pour her some water. Seriously, pour her some water. Had a little issue while I was at work. Just some confrontation with my assistant manager, and I wish people would realize that they'd get a lot more flies with honey if you know what I mean. I suppose some people will never learn. Shocking.
Yesterday was the primary program, Conner, along with all the other kids, did a great job. We'd been listening to the songs in the car for the past week straight, so he did a good job knowing the words and all that jazz, part from memory.... I always feel the spirit so strongly in those meetings. It's such a strong feeling of goodness, that you take your kids to church, that they're learning to choose the right. ALL those kids learning to choose the right -- imagine if everyone went to church. :) I know Miss Dodson would have an easier job. :)
Just finished "I Don't Know How She Does It" (how do you like my new good reads widget?). I really liked the ending. I swear I've read the book before, but I couldn't remember anything about it. {spoiler alert, although not really a big one} Anyway, in the end she chooses to stay at home and realizes she'll probably straddle the whole working/not working thing, and hopefully see her kids more. It was OK, only gave it 3 stars though. I just felt so stressed for her while she was trying to do it all. Not sure what I'm reading next.
S is headnig off to his ABC school here in a few minutes, and I'm going to be completely alone with nothing planned to do. Sadly, I see crabgrass spraying, cleaning out the freezer and cleaning some other stuff in my future -- but it's probably the first time ever. Luckily, it will only happen about once a month since I usually go help in C's class on ABC school days. I just don't know what I'd do with myself with all that free time!

  2. I see you have twilight and New Moon on your goodreads widget....have you read eclipse yet? I just started it and my friends say it's the best so far....

    I can't really imagine being home alone...kids at school, but I'm starting to get a little taste of it with Dallin gone to all-day Kinder and Ashton with preschool. Ooooh, the possibilities!!!
