This past week was an interesting one. I ended up coming home a little early from the birth center last week because they were slow. The midwives and I discussed changing my time here and decided that I will be at the Birth Center Tuesdays through Thursdays (coming up on Monday nights, and leaving Thursday night).
I was home this past week from Wednesday night to today. The girls had a lot going on and my Jack-Jack (my 18 year-old dog) has been really sick. It was nice to be home to watch Bella perform and to take care of Jack. It was also nice to hang out with the family and some friends Saturday night. Mother’s Day was breakfast made by the hubby, and then I hung out with another friend whom I haven’t seen in a while. I then came home a did a little homework.
Today was taking care of some additional things and trying to convince Jack to eat. He’s on a lot of medications, so his appetite is way off—normally he’s my vacuum cleaner, so I worry when he’s not himself. He finally ate a little something as I was walking out the door; I was quite relieved.
This afternoon, I left a little later than expected to come up North, so the GPS directed me to take Highway 1 through Santa Cruz, to Highway 17, then to Highway 280, and onto the 101 North. It seemed a little complicated to me, but I’m not going to complain too much—I was in San Francisco in two hours. It was also a very pretty drive. I always love crossing the Golden Gate Bridge and depending on traffic, the GPS doesn’t always take me over it.
Tomorrow is going to be a busy day in the birth center. I am finally on a normal schedule with them, so I will enjoy being kept busy. I have to figure out how to best utilize my time here to make sure I get birth center charts done, clinical paperwork completed for school, and schoolwork done.
I really wanted to write more, but I’m too tired and I have to be up early tomorrow to prep the birth center. I hope to include photos of my drives and the birth center in my upcoming posts. I’m just trying to get into the habit of writing on a regular basis—I haven’t done it in a while.
