Wow this week went by fast. And this weekend was....a blur. It started out Friday night by a phone call from my darling Gramma, asking if I could spend the night with her. She hurt her hand somehow and it was all puffy and red and she was in excruciating pain. So I went over to help her out because she could not move it. Around 12:15 she woke up and couldn't take the pain anymore, so we called 911. I followed her to the ER and spent ALL NIGHT sitting with her, waiting for test results. Tests were inconclusive, but they did give her pain medication and an anti-inflammatory so her hand is much better now. And she didn't break it or anything, we're wondering if it's a pinched nerve. So we got out of the hospital at 7 am and went to her apartment to get her ready for dialysis. Picked up her meds from the pharmacy on the way and then I finally got home and slept for 3 hours around 11. I hate all-nighers!
A lot of people have been asking me lately how I'm liking The Time Traveler's Wife. I have less than a hundred pages to go and I LOVE it! I can't believe I didn't read it sooner! I am, however, sobbing as I read, even though nothing particularly sad has happened yet. I know something is going to happen though, and the love between Clare and Henry is so beautiful that I am bawling my eyes out because I don't want them to be torn apart! Lol, I am SO emotional this weekend (probably from the lack of sleep!). I'll be finishing that book this week.
So much going on in school this week it's ridiculous, and I'm so stressed out! I have 4 tests (and it's not even midterm week!) and a paper and a phone conversation with a French person for my business French class to practice being a French receptionist! I'm so nervous about that..
To make things a bit harder, tomorrow starts the beginning of two weeks that are probably always going to be hard for me and my family. Two years ago tomorrow, my dad had a heart attack which put him in a coma in the hospital. October 7th would be his birthday. And October 15th is the day we were finally able to take him off of life support and donate his organs and tissue to other people who needed them more than him. I miss him everyday but these two weeks I know are going to be really tough. Boyfriend is going away for a few days at the end of this week too, so he won't be here with me. So if I'm not posting a lot, it might just be because I'm not in the mood.
And on a happier note, I just saw that the author of Shutter Island is doing a reading and signing in Buffalo on Thursday. I might go, if I'm up to it.
I hope everyone has a great week, and I honestly cannot wait for this week and next week to be over with.
