As of tomorrow I will become a college student again. Hard to believe but it’s true! Ok, I’m only taking two courses and they are from home, but I am back to school.
I’m taking two distance education courses from George Brown College. They are nursing related courses. Since I’ve been off work on medical leave for some time I’m going to brush up on a few things and then in January I will be returning to my old job at the hospital if all goes well. Fingers crossed.
Hopefully nothing else happens that will hamper my progress such as my hand injury that occurred in June! That certainly put a huge delay on things! I’m still recovering from that. I don’t know if my hand will ever be the same.
I had a busy week last week. I was trying to get a lot of things done so that I could concentrate on starting my courses on Monday. As I said in my last post I was doing a lot of work on a number of my websites, upgrading and updating because I know I’m going to have less time in the near future to work on things. I also did a little research into possible inviting guest bloggers to write for some of my sites. We’ll see how that goes. I haven’t decided if I’m going to go in that direction or not. I certainly get a lot of offers as it is anyway!
Then .. I was also trying to prepare to go away this weekend. My nephew – the hockey player that I told you about earlier in the summer, is now living in Brockville and playing for the Brockville Braves. He’s playing his first professional hockey games this weekend. My husband and mother-in-law – and I, were all going to go to the Ottawa area to see him play this weekend, however I wasn’t feeling all that well by the time Friday rolled around so I nixed the trip for myself.
There was a lot of planning for the trip going on all week too. For quite a while it looked like up to 10 people were going! As in quite a few of my in-laws! I finally heard from my sister-in-law mid-week or so last week and she said that they weren’t going to see our nephew play this weekend and that they were going to go in October instead. It’s better that the family staggers visits. The poor kid is from Chicago and he’s away from home for the first time in his life so seeing family every few weeks might be a good thing.
It was nice talking with my sister-in-law though. I hadn’t talked with her for quite a while. They’d just come home from closing up their cottage. She was saying that their big thing to do this weekend was to go out and look for swimming pool pumps because they’re going to need a new one next summer for the pool at the cottage. I guess they are cheaper at this time of year.
So here I am on my own this weekend. Busy learning how to use the learning module for my online classes and still working on my sites. I am enjoying the peace and quite in the house though – there’s been too much going on this summer, too many people in the house. I like it when I have time to myself.
How is your weekend?
