What are you all up to? Nothing else is really going on here. I didn't get much sleep today. I got up at 11:30. I had a massage scheduled and went and did that. I ended up falling back asleep around 4, for 45 minutes or so, while DH made dinner. I plan on laying back down here in a little bit. I work again tonight.

Tomorrow, I will be getting up around 11. I will be going in to EA's school. I will be helping with her Thanksgiving party and meal. The chef at her school with be cooking a Thanksgiving meal with all the fixings. It is really nice and I'm looking forward to it.

Well, I am off to read some of the boards, then as I said, I'm going to lay down for a little while. I will talk to you all later! I'm off to the hot tub for a little while! See you guys there! Enjoy your evening! God Bless and keep smiling!
Hope you can sleep and have a great night at work!!!!!

Hope you have lots of fun tomorrow!!!

There are sooooo many times when I want to pull my daughter back when she wants to do things and keep her here with me, but I know deep down inside that you have to let them go (well at least to a point). I know that I will always be her Dad and she knows that she will always be my baby.... And I know that Elizabeth will always feel the same about you~

that is great. My mom live across town, but she is in a seniors building where they are always cheeking up on her. She is also on the waiting list for a unit in a building that has call buttons and 24 hours nursing care if needed.
(across town here is less than 10min drive)
I am the only family member that lives close enough to her should help be needed. I still worry about her though. She is becoming more fragile every year.

I think I forgot to tell you, Sugar, that I have two nieces and both of them are nurses supervising the other nurses on their shifts. I am so proud of them!
I do cherish these days, as I know it will go by fast. I love doing these things with the kids as well!

I am sure you are proud of your nieces, as you should be! They've tried to talk me in to becoming a nurse supervisor, but at this time, I'm just not interested in it. Where I work, our supervisor don't make much more, for the work they do and the load they put up with it.

It's great that you live so close and can check in with her when needed.
