Today I...November 2nd

Today I... taking a bit of time to check in with all of you.

My father seems to be doing pretty well this week. He has an anniversary dinner for the curling club he and my grandparents have been members of for over 30 years now tomorrow and he called me on Wednesday because he was hunting around for his tuxedo. I spent a great deal of time cleaning my father's room while he was in the hospital and he was wondering if I had moved it out of his bedroom closet. I hadn't, but he called me back about an hour later to let me know that he had found it in another one of his upstairs bedrooms. I was very happy to hear that my father was looking forward to the dinner and that he was planning on getting all dressed up for it, he was just a bit concerned that his tuxedo might no longer fit him because he has lost quite a bit of weight since buying it.

Aside from that, I've had up days and down days. I don't always do that great for sleep, which is not good and I've had a lot of appointments all over the place, so I feel like I'm rushing a lot. I could definitely use some downtime, but I'm nearly two months away from my next vacation :ox I'm also running low on sick days because I've had to take so many to help out with my dad and take care of some stuff on my end as well. Sick days sure start going down fast when you encounter a situation when you really need them. I don't know what to do. It is very tempting to take my week off earlier than planned, but then I will end up having to work between Christmas and New Year's, which is never fun either because I always have family in town over the Holidays and as you all know, the Holidays are often far from restful!

My Sweetheart is still in Angola. He's supposed to be coming home on the 15th of this month, but he told me earlier this week in an e-mail that the work has not been going as quickly as they thought it would, so he might be coming home later. I hope they can catch up on their schedule and he can make it home on the 15th as planned, because I miss him like crazy.

On another note, I'm beginning to doubt whether I'll make it back to daily posting. I'm really beginning to lack the motivation for it, but I do frequently thing about what I would like this blog to become. I definitely still enjoy blogging, but I may just tweak what I blog about :o) Anyhow, I hope you'll all stick around no matter which way this blog goes, because I really do love having you follow me and leave comments!


  1. Hello Karine! I'm glad your Dad is going out--I am sure he'll have a wonderful time!

    I also know how hard it is to keep up with blogging. You are pulled in so many directions, and have so many things going on. So just know I just enjoy seeing your posts, whenever they come. Take care of yourself (!!) and THANK-YOU for your friendship!

    1. Thank you so much for your friendship and support Kim, I always look forward to hearing from you, either on my blog or through yours :o)
