I got some fall decorations on Saturday and did what decorating I'm going to do, I guess. We have a store called Big Lots that has very reasonable prices. They receive overstock from here and there and so you never know what they'll have. But they had lots and lots of fall decorations so I bought a wreath and a few things. I'll put some photos up tomorrow. I bought a little bale of hay and a cute scarecrow to put on the dining room table. Needless to say, I wasn't using my head because the moment I took the bale out of its plastic wrap I had tiny bits of hay everywhere! So, that little decorating scheme was relegated to the table out on the porch. I just decorating the table with some silk autumn leaves. My son emailed me a couple of fall photos of scenes around their home in Vermont and I made one into a desktop for my computer. So my decorating is complete!
I had my massage on Friday with some disappointing results. The last time I had one I felt miserable the next day. Massage releases toxins I'm told and you have to drink lots and lots of water. I thought perhaps I didn't drink enough last time so this time I drank and drank and drank. The next morning I felt like I had been hit by a truck and I felt awful. Every morning since I've awakened more stiff than usual. Maybe the therapist just does too much deep tissue work, I don't know. Maybe I'm just very sensitive to massage. For whatever reason, I think I'll save my money. At least I tried.
We are down to 6 residents at work but more may be coming this week. It makes for an easier time at work since all the residents have been there awhile and are settled in and none are death imminent. But it also makes the evening go by slowly. A lot of my co-workers are having family difficulties. One CNA's husband is in the hospital and another's mother is dying. I'm thankful that our lower numbers make it easier to cope since these ladies obviously need some time off.
Not much else going on. I'm going to my SIL's on Friday with Doc to see how he does over there. She is going to watch him for me when I take Mom to Disney at the end of October. Yesterday, I trimmed his hair and cut his toe nails (always a traumatic time for him!) He sits very still for the hair cut but absolutely hates the toe nail thing. I hate it too because I'm always so concerned about cutting too close to the quick. After that, he got a bath and now looks like a cleaner,
Hope you all are having a lovely day. Until next time.
