Its Friday and as I sit here in my office waiting for the time that I get to go home I cant help but daydream, daydream about all the places Id rather be than here. If I haven’t shared this secret then here it is, I’m a pinner a huge pinner. For those of you that don’t know its a website that you pin or add your favorite pics on your boards think of it as an online scrapbook. So I obviously already have a board of places Id like to visit. I thought to share with you guys the places I want to see.
Usually on Friday nights we have movie night but this weekend we switched it up a bit and decided to whine down our weekend by watching a movie on Sunday night. The girls usually pick but most of the time they pick a movie I don’t even want to watch, this time I picked a personal favorite when I was a kid. We saw Space Jam. I was so stocked to see it again.When I was a kid this was the best kids movie, I think I watched it like 100 times. It was so cool to enjoy a movie I once loved as kid with my own kids. Whats even better is my little one thought I was the coolest ever because I knew the lyrics to the song and most of the lines.
My grandmother is having her main artery unclogged and a stent is being put in on Friday (tomorrow). As in any surgery it’s very risky but with her, the risk is doubled. This is not the first time its done and usually my grandmother goes in without a fight, this time its a bit different she says she’s tired of having things done to her. She’s a little reluctant to do it but after a long speech from the doctor and her kids she reluctantly said yes. I’ve been going by regularly because once she gets admitted to the hospital it becomes a little hard for me to see her because of my girls. My mom usually watches them but when grams is in the hospital my mom spends her days by my grandma’s bed. Yesterday my grandma called me and asked me to go over and eat. When I got there I found her in her room looking at old pics. She was feeling a little nostalgic and I could tell by the way she endlessly gazed at each picture. Seeing all the old pics made me feel a little sad too, then I came across the most beautiful picture I have ever seen.
It made my heart feel all fuzzy and stuff. I remember when my grandfather used to drink his Nicaraguan imported whiskey and play his guitar while my grandma sat beside him and sang rancheras. I stared at the picture and at that moment I saw it. I saw how perfectly they complimented each other even back then. They each had a role and combined they made beautiful music together. Theses two were meant for one another. I’m a way I’ve always admired what they have. I always say that they are a real love story. Forever does exist
Last week was one crazy week I wasn’t able to gather my thought and write one sentence so many crazy things happened that my mind was going at 100 mph with no time to stop and think.
Monday was my first day back from a 3 week vacation which I kind so enjoyed because I was sick for 5 days out of the entire time. I did however get to spend time with my girls, it was amazing to sleep in late and play with them or watch movies all day. I only took 3 days to actually do a deep cleaning. So Monday at work was crazy I has 3656448 emails to answer and a bunch of To-Do stickies for me to take care of.
Tuesday was crazier than Monday because I had the workload from Monday that I wasn’t able to finish. Around 12 right when I was going to take my lunch I get a call from a family member that they were called by my mom’s work that she had fainted twice during school hours and wasn’t breathing. My heart dropped to the floor, i ran out of the office with all the work on my desk and drove like a maniac to her job. When I got there I was able to get information right away on what exactly had happened, I had to wait for what seemed like forever for the ambulance to open the doors and give me a 411 on there status of my mother. my mother is the lunch lady at my youngest school and it happened during lunch time so my little one saw the whole thing and thought her grandmother was dieing. Sh ewas scared to death. Thank fully it was nothing too crazy for the moment but I took my mother straight to her doctor, they are still doing exams to pin point the cause, I’m crossing my fingers that its not anything bad.
Wednesday was the first surgery day of the year at work (i work for a Lasik eye surgery center), that means lots and lots of work and patients to see, I did OT at work and by the time I got home I was beat.
Thursday I woke up sick, my nose was running and my body ached a little, I thought it was just the stress from the days before but by noon I realized I had a cold.
Friday I got ready to go to work but I kept feeling cold. I soon realized i had a fever and called in sick. i was in bed all day sick as a dog.
Saturday and Sunday I was still on recovery mode. Nose was still running but I was feeling just a tad better.
Soooo yes that was my week and a full explanation for my followers on why i was M.I.A. Today I’m feeling a little better and going at life with a smile on my face and motivated to work.
