It’s been a busy week! I think I’m glad the weekend’s here, even though I’m going to be on my own for the next few days.
My husband has been off work for the last two weeks. The first week was a 1 week layoff from work due to budget cuts and this week was the first week of his two week holidays. Yes … he’s off for a total of three weeks!
Since we didn’t make any definite holiday plans (except for this weekend which just got messed up!) we’ve just been hanging out at home.
It’s been nice to have my husband at home, but it’s also thrown me totally off my work schedule. Every time I start to do some work on the computer – usually on one of our many blogs, he comes in and starts asking me questions about something else or suggests that we go out and do something. So my websites have suffered while he’s been off.
We’ve also had a few drop in visitors this week. One was Chris’ nephew and another was a friend from work that hasn’t visited for a long time. I didn’t mind having visitors over, but since I’m still not feeling so great and I’m way behind in my work it did disrupt things to some degree.
I was looking forward to going away this weekend. My husbands friend is having a big 30th wedding anniversary party and I was supposed to go, but since we can’t bring our dog someones got to stay home and take care of her. All I wanted was to go up north and hang out in a cabin (and later at my sister in laws trailer), just lounge in some of the rustic furniture and relax.
Now that I know I’m going to be home on my own for three or four days I’m scrambling to make some plans of my own. I’m going to see if some of my friends want to get together for a spa day or a girls night out (or both). If I can pull it off I think that will make up for not going up north this weekend.
It’s probably better that I stick around home anyway. I’m still not feeling all that well. I’ve been dizzy several times this week and I’ve had a constant migraine that gets worse, than dies down, then gets worse again – but never seems to go away. There’s no news yet on the head MRI that I had last week – hopefully that means that no news is good news.
So what are your plans for the weekend? It’s a long weekend here in Canada so that means we have three days to enjoy some time off.
