The week flew by and the weekend went even faster. Mom had a knee replacement on Tuesday so the entire week was spent running between my office and her room. Luckily the surgery was at my hospital. Lucky for two reasons...we have some of the best doctors and all I had to do was walk across the street to see her. On Friday they transferred her to the rehab hospital in Lakewood. She is doing really really well. She's suppose to be in for two weeks but they are now talking about only keeping her a week.
Went to the auto show this weekend. I am looking for something a bit larger than the car to carry art show stuff. I'm having a hard time moving to an SUV. I'm a car girl. I love to drive and I love cars...sporty, fast cars. But I need one vehicle that I will enjoy driving and be able to carry everything. I am seriously looking at the Ford Edge. The back seats lay down as well as the passenger seat in the front. It has a huge amount of room and still gets 25 mpg on the highway. I am going to wait to buy until the 2011's come out. Then they will want to deal on the 2010's.
Lou dropped a bomb on me this weekend. He has been offered a full time position in.....Abu Dhabi...Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emerate. The first thing out of my mouth as the uber supportive wife that I am...."I'm not moving to Abu Dhabi". They already asked Lou what I do and wondered if they could find a job for me too. But there is no research at the hospital in Abu Dhabi so they don't have a position for me....which is a good thing because..."I'm not moving to Abu Dhabi".
Yikes....He will end up going...he wants to go....whether it is full time or part-time we haven't figured that out. It's going to suck to be alone. I don't mind being alone occassionaly...I even like it. But for extended periods of time...it's going to suck. Maybe it will only end up being a few weeks at a time. Who knows.
