I know you all missed me, just to prove it you can send me a few wine charms and a nice 222 Bottle Premium Wine Rack. That way, I’ll truly know you missed my brilliant writing. Look, I’m not expecting a huge party or parade, but either would also be lovely along with an all-day spa appointment and steak dinner. I’m easy to please!
So, on a serious note I’ll tell you all why I haven’t been around for the past week. First of all, I dropped my cell phone and then the battery decided to explode. Not good! Fortunately it was only an $8 loss, just about the same amount many of you spend on the morning latte. Not a big deal but a minor inconvenience since I had to start my 9-5 nursing assistant clinicals. Now, that was truly the highlight of the week. However, I had to wake up at an ungodly hour every morning and so it left me feeling like a wasted zombie by the time I got home at 4pm. The most I could do was rush to the super wine cube for a calming glass of vino before passing out on the couch for a few hours. After that, it was time to clean the huge mess my child made while the spouse worked on….something that has nothing to do with cooking, cleaning, or anything useful.
Overall, it was a very interesting week. I came to truly adore a few of the nursing home residents, even a small grumpy old woman who smacked my arm when I asked her not to stand without help. I also saw my fair share of poop and I can’t say I’ll ever enjoy that part of it. Of course, it was a very rewarding experience and I’m actually a bit sad it’s over. Now, it’s time to get my act together and go buy some new bottlings for reviewing. I’m cheating this weekend and will be reviewing a white from California. Shhhh! Don’t tell!!
