It's been a long week. I spent a good deal of it, more than I planned, over at my parents' house, and tried getting some things in my personal life straightened out. On the financial front, well, I was interrupted Monday with a call from my Mother just as I was starting to get to work.
"You're father wants you here to take him to get his hearing aid, but you don't need to come." (and I could hear the caregiver in the background telling Mom she could handle it, and she shouldn't be calling me. With Dad being his cranky self on top of that in the background too). How the hell could I work after that?
So I go over there -- by the time I get there they have all left for the hearing aid. I wasn't going to get much work done in the mental state I was in, so I let myself into their house with my key and just sat there waiting for them to get back and my night shift as caregiver to start.
Today, I had to cover for one of the caregivers who was having some medical tests today. Then by the time the other one got there in the evening, I had to rush to go to a dinner I needed (but did not want) to go out to tonight. I was glad I went after I got there. This is just the 3rd time I've seen these people. I am still amazed by how comfortable I feel among them even though I barely know those people, and tonight they had a private room at a pizza place. It was a bit expensive, but nice and worth the cost.
Driving back it was rainy and foggy. It wasn't so foggy that it was difficult driving, and I kinda enjoyed driving through the mist tonight for some reason. With the midnight fog it was like the world was in monochrome.
Tomorrow night, K has a b.day party that I need to show up to too, and like today I'll be covering for the regularly scheduled caregiver too.
Eck. Can you say sleep deprivation, children? -- Ah, nice try!
Well, time for me to get a little sleep anyway. Hmm, now to get it I just have to remember where I put it. (ok, bad jokes are starting to happen. It's definitely time to get some sleep.)
