I am almost through a tough week.
We have bern stressed about my father-in-law. He got sick while on the Viking River cruise. It looked real bad at first and Mom got off the cruise to take him to the hospital in Germany. He was in the ICU at first, pnuemonnia they said. He has advanced COPD, so that is serious. He has gotten excellent care! They are expecting to release him tomorrow! Woohoo! This means he will make his originally scheduled flight home Monday!
I can't quite relax until they are home though. My brother-in-law made it over there Friday, that turns the stress levels down, but that isn't rnough. We need to see them with our own eyes before we can finally breath that final sigh of relief. I have already posted here about how grateful I am about his role in this whole thing.
I had a Girl Scout service unit team conference meeting today. An all day meeting of the service units and council staff for networking, covering the program year, volunteer services and management, sharing of information between the service units and also council. It was a good event, learned about and got some great ideas and take aways!
Today was also Helen's birthday. I stopped on my way home to pick up stuff for that. We had pizza for dinner, per her request, then she had sugar free chocolate cake (yay! Publix!) and opened her presents. She had a good birthday, even though I missed most of it. She got to hog Daddy and Shara all to herself for the day. Shara took her to the park for an hour, they had fun.
I have lots to do this week. Need to make sure Mom walks into a pristine clean house, make sure my own laundry is done, so she can do hers. I need to connect with a few people this week in person. Follow up with a few others online and start putting together my training program outline for the next service unit meeting. I am way behind on nursery stuff to. Need to repair that one riser and replace a few valves. We have made some decisions and now the talking phase is over. It is time to DO!
I am slowly but surely getting my time management on track with all the new things i have going on. I am no wonder woman, but sometimes I come close. On that note, my tired babbling is done for the night!
