This has been a hard month here with lots of adjusting.  We had a great trip to Topsail island but then I've been mostly on day shift since then which has resulted in a big change in how our family runs.  I wasn't expecting it to be as big of a deal as it has been.  This was the first time that Wesley has had the kids all weekend by himself in ??? ever maybe?  I'm gone from 6:30 am-7:45 or later pm both days.  He's done great but it's been a struggle I think for all of us.  Luckily there was a cookout at his bro/SIL's house last night so they were able to blow off some steam!  I'm starting to get in the groove of dayshift more but will be glad to go back to nights when Robert starts school.  I can't believe he is going to Kindergarten in less than a month!  wow.  But first we have a week away to look forward to.

I'll try to post more about the kids tomorrow but first I have to put in a quote from today.  An elderly patient passed away and as she was dying her son said "she was a great mom, she did so much for us".  What a great reminder.  No one mentions a career, assets etc when someone dies.  That's not what it's all about.

Mary's story

A. Kavitha asked Mary to tell her a story
"Once upon a time there was a witch and a good guy and a good witch.  The witch came into the castle and washed the guy's hair but it was glue and stuck the guy's hair to his hand and then the good witch washed the glue out."
