This time of year always flies by. It didn't help that I was sick last weekend. I took Friday off again but didn't get a lot done. First I rearranged the storage room so that the cats have more 'approved' places to hide. Hiding behind the bug spray was not acceptable. I found a box of old documents that needed to be shredded so I sat in front of the tv and shredded them. After that I ate lunch and took a nap because I was feeling rather poorly. I woke up at 3 and pruned the tree that was over-hanging the driveway. It bugged me every time I drove by. I didn't have enough energy to drag the branches in to a pile so they are still lying there. Then my nephew came home from school and we went back to the house in town.
Oh, but first, I should have mentioned that we (including the dogs) went back to the house on Tuesday night because my nephew had Veteran's Day off. I managed to get out of bed early to take him to school on Thursday morning and then I left work early to take him to a dentist appointment. He doesn't get cavities so I wasn't worried but when he came out he mentioned that he needs all 4 wisdom teeth extracted. Yikes. He isn't too concerned but it will cost me around $900 after insurance. Luckily, I have enough money in my health savings account for things like this. I decided not to rush it and try to get it done before the holidays. Instead, I scheduled the extractions for January when he has a Monday off. He will get them pulled on the Friday before and have 3 days to recover.
On Saturday I stayed in bed as much as I wanted and wandered around in the yard a little, collecting seeds and pulling weeds. I still felt crummy. On Sunday I woke up and felt 98% better which was great because we had an early Thanksgiving meal to go to with his youth group. We brought pies. It all went well.
Now it is Wednesday already and the weekend will soon be here. I have Friday off again and the engineers are coming out to do the pull test on the barn-shed tie downs at 9am. Finally! I hope they pass the test and I can move on. I've been waiting months for this.
