Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?
All are welcome! Just add your link to the Linky-List, and be sure to visit others and join in their conversations! The link will be open from March 16th at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday March 19th at 7pm (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!
How are you doing today? I hope you’re doing well. Let’s enjoy some nice coffee while relaxing inside. It’s been a rainy week, after a seriously amazing sunny weekend last weekend. I have to admit, I kind of like the rain – especially when I can enjoy it from the warmth and dryness of my house!
This weekend – this weekend I am hitting up Fogo De Chao with a friend of mine! I’m so looking forward to it — yes, it’ll be a bit of an indulge (or, more than a bit) but with the deal they have going for Portland Restaurant Month I just can’t resist! I look forward to a Saturday night spent laying around doing not much as my body digests all that amazing meat (and cheese bread… oh, the cheese bread).
I also plan to continue my work on getting my room in order. I figure that I’ll be spending the better part of April in it, so it might as well be NICE for me then. I have two surgeries coming up starting the second week of April – It’s still nearly a month away but it definitely looms large in my mind at the moment. Between now and then I have to bring order to a much-neglected room, figure out what kind of foods I want to have on hand, make sure I have projects of various types readily available, create lists of things I could watch and listen to depending on my level of functionality, and make sure the books I want to read are close at hand.
It’s a lot of work — and a lot of fun to think and plan. It’s not really a vacation, but for two weeks I’ll be pretty much house-bound, so I want to make the spaces as good as I can for myself.
I’ve also been dealing with the DRAINING act of trying to get Family Medical Leave paperwork together. Filling out forms and chasing down the Release of Information Department for my healthcare provider (who, as it happens is open for only 15 minutes before my work day starts, closed during my lunch break, and closed before I get out of work. Also they appear to have about two people answering the phones, because every SINGLE time I try to call them on a 15-minute break I spend my entire time on hold). Somehow they have managed to not get my paperwork returned to my place of work EVEN THOUGH THEY CLAIM IT’S BEEN COMPLETED FOR A MONTH. The second set of paperwork I submitted they haven’t received yet so… I’ll be swapping lunches with people and checking in right when they open until it gets handled. Not a fun way to spend my pre-work time, or my lunch-time, and it’s just frustrating.
Enough of that, though. This weekend holds some fun and I’m looking forward to that. I’m going to try to focus on that – on all the yummy food I’ll be eating and just how ridiculously full I’ll be after our meal.
How are you doing today? How has your week been? Anything exciting in the works?
