This weekend flew by so fast. I need to take a vacation. I've got lots of stuff I'd like to get accomplished at home and not nearly enough time to do it in. There seems to be some kind of an event every weekend to stop me from getting stuff done.
Events and illnesses are keeping me occupied. I was retching and barfing last weekend. Next weekend we have my Dad's b-day, and the weekend after that I put Bink on a plane, much as I hate it, to go see her Dad. Then, Myra and I hit the open highway and go on a mini vacation for 3 or 4 days. We're going someplace nice with lots of massages and facials involved. We ought to be well by then, because we've had every crappy illness known to man in the past couple of months.
The weekend after that is Thanksgiving. Then the christmas shopping is on like a neck bone.
We definitely need a maid to take care of business around here. Myra used to have a maid who would clean the house and cook dinner for 25 bucks a day. That's pretty cheap.
This weekend my sister, Myra, and I loaded up the kids and went to Jackson, Mississippi for a family event. It was pretty fun. We saw the prettiest little tiny baby. At 8 weeks old, she is still smaller than any of our babies were at birth. So tiny and perfect.
But alas, the weekend is done and it's back to the old grindstone...
I have a new client I'm working with. I've got to do some business with them tomorrow morning and get the contract all signed, sealed, and delivered. I also have to download the new PPS guidelines for psychiatric care so I can learn it and zero in on 2 potential clients I have located. I am ceaselessly amazed at the way hospitals fail to prepare and then need to hire pricey consultants like me to show them the way. I suppose that is their way of preparing. Certainly works for me.
I'm always excited when I have a new client. I've worked with this group before, so I know they will listen to me and carry out my recommendations. That is important. I gave up a huge client worth 55K this past year because they didn't carry out my recommendations. They were a bunch of boneheads though and would have eventually blamed me for their failure even though they were screwing it up by not doing what I was telling them had to be done. That sort of client is not worth having.
Maybe this new client will revitalize me on work for awhile. I've been almost burnt out lately and I really can't afford to burn out. I need to make hay while the sun is shining. One of my doctors told me I should find me a rich husband and stop working so hard. That same doctor told me I was pretty and sweet the other day. And sat by me at the last medstaff meeting. And refused to go to his seat when it was pointed out to him. He said he was sitting where he wanted to sit, next to the person he wanted to sit with, thank you very much. But he is my buddy. We go way back. I'd be shocked if he made any romantic overtures. Although... one day I threatened to twist his nipple and he told me he likes pain.
HA! Pain indeed...
