I got off work a little early tonight, and so actually got to have a stay-home-date with my husband!
Tomorrow is my first complete day off, not scheduled to work at either hospital, for the first time since October. I am so excited. There are a thousand things I want to do, but nothing I want as badly as to just spend the day sleeping! But I know what I will do, and we are all so excited, but you will have to wait and see!
In the meantime, the news on the radio as I drove home said that immigration started doing round-ups in Texas tonight, and that it is going to start in Oklahoma as well. Regardless of politics, this issue is near to our heart after working so hard to get a green card for our oldest daughter. We don’t talk about her much because she is grown and can tell her own story, but we love her, and watch out for her, and care about her and her family and friends. So tonight I posted this to her Facebook page, so that she and her family and friends would be sure and know their rights.
I am so relieved that her green card finally came through, and I hope her family is being safe.
In other news, I found out I cannot get the new cochlear implant “eggs” that I got to try on because they are SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS EACH. I can get a $2,000 credit voucher if I turn in my old white ones from when I first got my implants, but that would still be twelve thousand dollars! No, thank you. I will stick with the weight of the world hanging off my ears for right now. My turn will come soon enough, maybe, or not, but I am okay. Disappointed, but okay.
Know what is even more exciting? Sherlock Holmes on Netflix. Oh my goodness! Nathan found it and we watched it for our date night, and it was so good! I love it so much! We enjoyed the time together in the quiet evening, and I am grateful just to be close enough to hold his hand after this very intense year.
I am also excited to play with the children tomorrow! We have such big plans! It’s going to be so great! I already packed the car and everything, even our food. I can’t wait!
I don’t know how I will sleep between that excitement, and being all stirred up from Sherlock Holmes, but maybe I think I am exhausted enough that sleep will come!
