So, last week was crazy. I picked up two new cases, both with limitations running early next week. That kept me busy.
My mother was moved from the hospital into rehab on Wednesday, no surgery needed. Of course, she has returned to her typical demanding self. At 7:00 on Tuesday night she called and informed me that she would need regular clothes and that I had to do her laundry for her. Apparently the rehab place that she was in before (that was supposed to be doing her laundry) packed up all of her clothes dirty!
I was working late, but TT took care of it (DH wasn't about to touch his MIL's undies). I dropped off her stuff on Wednesday, and then on Thursday she called my on my way home from work at 7:00 and informed me that it was the wrong stuff, that she needed her winter clothes and there was more to bring back. I told her that I was not going home and doing her laundry. I had a nanny interview that night and I still had work to finish up because I had to rush home for the interview (that I nearly forgot about). She whined. Oh well. I know that she had two pairs of sweat pants and two sweaters in addition to t-shirts and lighter weight clothes in the jam-packed suitcase that I had already taken her.
Meanwhile, I hired a nanny! Yay! Yes, it is the model. Fingers-crossed this all works out, because the girls really need someone who can transport them in the afternoon.
Today, PS applied to be a volunteer page at the library. (She has to perform a certain number of volunteer hours for NJHS.) She was so cute filling out the application, just like a real job! And then she had to do an interview and take an alphabetization test. Of course, she got the (volunteer) job. It certainly didn't hurt that her elementary school librarian was also working in the library that day and gave raving reviews to the volunteer coordinator.
Overall, today was a quiet and relaxing end to a crazy week. Tomorrow will be busier--Girl Scout cookies are in!
