after a combo family party for both Alex & Christopher Saturday night, Alex and I spent the day Sundee, together. the birthday cake was awesome… it’s from a place here called “The Farmhouse Café”. vanilla cake with pieces of fresh strawberries and real whoop-cream frosting… sooo good!
I took Alex out to the Kobe Japanese steak house where we sat around a grill with 6 other people as a chef cooked our meal.. if you have never been, it’s a must try! the chef tossed cooked shrimps at everyone and we are supposed to catch them in our mouth but erm, some caught them in the eye or hair or chest.. so funny to watch people bobbing with open mouths trying to catch a bite!
after dinner, Alex and I went for a long drive around the country side, town hopping, listening to good tunes, and talking.. it was fun, I used to take the kids for rides like that in the evenings when they were little and we’d stop at a park, play a while, get snacks and continue riding around. the younger ones would fall asleep and I would carry their lil dead weight bodies and tuck them into bed. Alex informed me on our ride that sometimes, just sometimes, he’d fake being asleep just to get carried in.. awwww, bless..
it is thundering and lightening right now, I LERVE IT and oooh my, it’s pissin down rain! I think it’s raining men! nah, my mistake, it’s just cats and dogs… Bella the big fraidy-cat is practically on my lap as she gets askeeeered during storms… I think this is our very first good storm of the season, Diane and I lerve thunderstorms.
last Wednesday I had my first interview for a call center position. it would be for the Nebraska Med Center but actually the call center is in a Mutual of Omaha building. It’s a desk job and I would be a triage nurse for physicians’ after hours, a hazardous accident reporting center, patient callbacks after a hospitalization, and a few other duties.
also, it would be a day position and I am NOT a morning person, i have been working nightshift for 12 years! I will always miss labor & delivery as that was my dream job, but I can’t go back to that with the impairments I now have. c’est la vie..
I figure if this is where God is leading me, it will be offered to me- if not, something else will.
Emily (my daughter) and son-in-law are going to Costa Rica Easter Sunday for a week. he won the all expense paid trip from work! and we will be keeping Julian whilst they are gone. Emily will also graduate from nursing school next month and I am SO proud of her!
anyone going to watch the royal wedding? Diane and I have mixed feelings as there is sadness mixed in with the joy because Diana, Will’s mum, should be attending rather than Camilla. Diana's story and the way she was treated will always be a sad one, in my opinion.. but I know she will be there in spirit.
have a great day, my friends..
