Hello ladies~ Yay to us all for surviving another Monday.
I actually made it home from work almost 10 minutes before my daughter got off the bus, without even getting a speeding ticket.
It's kind of frustrating having to leave work by 2:20 pm to get home before she does, as I usually stayed until 3:00 pm last year, when both kids were in elementary school. It doesn't seem as if those 40 minutes would make a big difference, but I miss having those few extra minutes to treat a patient who needs a little additional treatment time, or to finish up documentation and treatment notes.

~ Great to see you again hon, and we do miss you around here! I'm sorry you haven't found much time to post with your busy work schedule, but congratulations on your position being made permanent! I'm sorry about the car issues as those are always such a pain in the rear, and hope you find a solution to the car problem. I bet that was pretty scary, breaking down on the motorway. I'm glad you had a great weekend with your niece and nephews, and I'm sure they had as much fun as you and your bf did. As far as fanfiction, other than Offside, I'm also reading Ginnie's stories, Dear Mr. Masen by jennde
; Forget Me Not by Sydney Alice
; Nightingale by Lady Gwynedd
; In Your World by solostintwilight
; An Introduction to Swirl and Daisy
; and Inside Man by ooza
, as well as a few others I can't recall right now. Caryn
~ We've missed you too, and assumed you'd been somewhat overtaken with RL stuff- work and the boys' activiites. Hope we see you later tonight if you have time, and I also hope you have the chance to catch your breath.Marielle
~ I'm sorry you missed seeing your Grandpa when you made plans to visit, but it's kind of funny that he was off partying somewhere. That must be what keeps him young and active; now we know where you get it from.
How is you ankle holding up, with your recent celebrating over the weekend?Ginnie
~ Loved the story your related from your Target visit when you heard Super Massive Black Hole as someone's ringtone, and how you ended up sharing a chat together. I always have a goofy smile wherever I am, when I hear something from any of the three soundtracks. Did your daughter feel better and was she able to attend school today? How did LilRob do during his first day of pre-school today.... and maybe more importantly, how did Mama do?
We have missed your more frequent postings around here, but completely understand while you were away. We're glad you've had the time to grieve the loss of your sweet dog, and hope the special time with the kiddos the past couple of weeks helped with the healing a little bit. I'd meant to tell you how much I'm loving the story Arms
, and my, oh, my
...you certainly upped the citrus factor just a bit, in a very tasteful way, I might add.
I can't wait to see where the story goes from here.Susie
~ I'm glad you had a lovely visit with Mary over the weekend, and especially enjoyed lunch and your special purchases. I'm very jealous of your gorgeous weather. When do you head to Charlottesville to pick up your FIL's car? It sounds like it'll be a quick trip.Desiree
~ Sorry you're having computer problems, and hope they're resolved quickly. Amy~
Glad you had a great time on vacation, and good luck with all the laundry. Missp
~ Hope you're feeling better hon, and here's to a great 2nd week for you! You almost needed a weekend to recover, after your busy weekend.
Have a great evening, and I hope to check back in one more time tonight.
