A Week in the Life - Day 3

* I know I'm crazy behind on posting these, but I did keep up with taking my daily pictures and jotting down notes of what I did. I just got behind on posting them to my blog due to being busy over Spring break, going on a mini-vacation, etc...*

I woke up to a dreary, rainy morning and trudged on into work at 8:00am where it was time to get back to work on those dreaded annual preformance reports:

For lunch, I had more of the same leftover chili and in the afternoon I finally turned in the finished version of the report. YAY! Around this time, Jason called me to let me know his dad (who is a truck driver) was going to be driving through the area in a few hours and would be stopping by to have dinner with us and spend the night before he got back on the road (this happens once or twice a month and is awesome that we can see him so frequently now).

When I got off work, I ran home and changed the sheets on the guest bed and then did some vacuuming in the living room in anticipation for John's arrival:

Our living room. I love my Dark Tower prints and the bad ass 1970's floor to
ceiling lamp my dad recently refurbished and gave to us. So awesome.
Later that evening, me, Jason and John went out to our favorite local Mexican restaurant, Casa Fiesta, for dinner and stuffed ourselves with delicious Mexican food and plenty of Margaritas.

After dinner, we went back to the house and sat around chatting for a bit.

Jason's dad, John. The best father in law I could ask for!
Not long after we got home, my Grandma called to tell me that the woman with the nursing service who was supposed to take the night shift with my Great Aunt, called in sick. My Great Aunt Millie is 94 years old and recently hurt her back. She's in terrible pain, and has needed assistance with going to the bathroom, etc...My Grandma hired a service to take care of her because she wants to remain in her home, but with the call-in, there was going to be no one there overnight to help her in case she needed to use the bathroom or get up. My Grandma asked me if I would care to sleep on her couch and just be there for Aunt Millie if she needed me. She said she'd pay me $15/hour, which is what they pay the nursing service. I of course would have done it for free, but she insisted on compensating me.

After saying goodnight to Jason and John (and Gimli!) I drove over to McCreary Manor where Aunt Millie lives. She was already in bed asleep, so I stayed up until about 11 PM reading Brisingr, then went to bed. It was an uneventful night, but I was happy I could help out.
