yep, that's what I'll be on next week. It is not a planned vacation at all, but one that sort of just happened. This week was supposed to be my first week back in the pharmacy, working for real, but because the floater pharmacist that has been covering for me the last two months has no where to go or no hours to work, he's still at my store. So I did a few extra clinics this week in hopes that I would be back to my store next week. Well, I get a call from the pharmacy office in Arcadia asking me if I wanted to do another week of shots. Not really is more or less what I said, because at this point in time, most people who want the shot have already gotten it. So when I do 5 shots in 4 hours, I think it's about time to stop with the clinics. But because this floater is supposed to have 40 hours a week, he'll stay at my store another week and I get to take a week off. yup, a whole week! I still have one week left of paid vacation for this year so heck I'll take it. My parents are coming down tomorrow for Mike's brother's wedding this weekend and leaving on Monday, so I may drive back to Hercules with them and fly back later next week. I can visit a few friends, see some relatives and just hang out. I haven't been home-home in ages so some time spent with the mom and pops will be nice.
As for the wedding this weekend, it's going to be interesting. The schedule for the day is kind of done, but I'm sure once everyone involved is all in one place tomorrow, we'll go over it again. Mike and I are part of the wedding party and he picked up his tux the other night, but I still need to make sure my dress will fit. I've been eating TONS of junk food lately so I won't be surprised if there's an extra bit of flab hanging around. Check back later on for some pics of this weekend, courtesy of my dad and my brother.
And speaking of parents, I need to clean the house RIGHT NOW. Mike and I have been sleeping in the living room, by the fireplace and the tv, so the Aerobed is out with all our blankets. I think I'll clean that up tomorrow, before the parental units show up. We've been using the fireplace lately because there's a problem with my heater/furnace. it's unplugged right now, awaiting my dad to have a look at it. We just added the small electric radiator heater too to the mix.
Sort of a side note, I'm kinda excited to see my mom and dad. I'm trying to think of the last time I saw them, and I can't figure it out. Usually about this time, I get a little antsy because I know I'd have to spend a whole few days with them, but I'm sort of looking forward to it. I don't know yet if I'm going to go home for Christmas (I do have the whole weekend off), and in my whole life, I've only missed Ko Family Christmas just once. so seeing the crazy people who raised me this weekend and possibly spending time with them at home-home next week is going to be nice.
enough for now, stay tuned for snapshots of the weekend ahead...
