This week was well, one of those that you just love and hate at the same time. Monday was very slow at work. We had a lot of time to bond as “fellow-workers” (as per Lupe), we chatted, we laughed. Shared stories, at the same time work. Alyssa enjoyed school too. She made a friend with someone called Amiel who she claimed pushed her on the swing. She actually cannot wait to go to school the next day to see him. Rolly had a good thousand-buck bonus from work! Now, that is the good news. Only that that the state took almost $400.00 tax from it. Ouch!

Tuesday was again fair (for me at least). Patients all decided to show up after I left work at 2:30. Poor David, Tracy and Leonard. But of course, the managed as usual. Great team work! I called Rolly lunch time by the way and he was walking at Home Depot shopping. Lol. And Alyssa, we took her the the Chinese Restaurant after we picked her up because she was craving for Orange Chicken.

Wednesday was Rolly’s bonding with the boys. I am glad he can do that at least once a week. I know he misses them too. We are actually planning on going camping on the summer up north. Or maybe somewhere closer as I know I cannot get a day off from work…

Thursday, we drove across town after work to look at some places. It is always fun just because we are together. It makes the travel exciting too. Work was bad though… I guess we had to pay for the three days that we were slow. But at least one patient thought I was sweet. Lupe said: “The patient said I was really nice. That some people just do it for the money and that I do it for the service.” One of our good friend at work got a really good news herself and we were so happy for her. I want to actually share the story but I know how personal it can be, and I respect her as I know the feeling when we were at her shoes some years ago.

Today Friday went nuts! It was so busy, not even a spare moment to sit and phase a little bit. The patients were coming in and out of the Lab Door. We were down three people so the list just keeps piling up. It was already 2:31 and I was still taking care of a patient. It was just so busy… But the good news of it all is that, it is pay week! I love, love it! Well, I’ve been saving at least $500.00 per pay check for something big. Aside from that, I pay Alyssa’s $150/week tuition. After all expenses, I am left with couple of hundreds and few change… enough to enjoy the weekend.

So, bring it on! Saturday and Sunday will sure be busy still but we are so excited for it. Rolly has to do some consulting on Sunday so I am planning on taking Alyssa to the mall. We still have a gift card from Macy’s that we haven’t used yet. And maybe watch a movie or something…
