The highlights of my work week include:

  • Calling a resident “babe”.  Not a sweet little white-haired female resident in her 90’s.   But a male resident in his 40’s.  “If you don’t feel comfortable talking to the psychologist, ba — AHH, you don’t have to.”  Talk about sending the wrong signal.  I must stop calling Firas “babe”.
  • Carving pumpkins with my residents and having them work hard to preserve the seeds for roasting, only to remember right as they came out of the oven that 80% of the residents are on a mechanical soft diet and wouldn’t be able to enjoy them.  So naturally, I told them they were burnt.  Minutes later, my assistant and I had to have a “meeting” = a pumpkin seed feast in our office.
  • One male resident in his 70’s playing Celine Dion’s “I’m Your Lady” on his iPhone.  On repeat.  For three days.  Even when sitting in the dining room chowing down on a hamburger and fries.  It’s one of those songs that you might blare in your car when you’re all alone and you just need to LET IT OUT.  Not the case with this man.  The best part is staff walking around subconciously singing, ” ‘Cause I’m your laaaaady, and you are my maaaaan” under their breath.  Including me, obviously.

Enjoy your weekend!


Happy Birthday Charlie!

Happy 1st Birthday Charlie!

Soon after you were born, your dad and I made a little motto for you-
and us. Be good, be brave, be funny. Be a GOOD person- get in trouble
and get dirty- but be kind. Be adventurous and BRAVE. It often takes
bravery to be a good person and do the right thing. Be FUNNY because
the world is a crazy place and everyone needs a good laugh.

You turned 1 today and you are already all of these things and more.

We love you so much and look forward to watching our good, brave,
funny boy grow. Try to slow it down a little though- this year went
way too fast!

Readers: I recently started following an insanely great blog called Momastery and in August she wrote (much more eloquently) our exact feelings.

Who’s ready for the weekend????This guy!

Anyone going to try any Lauerland recipes this weekend? My folks are going to make the honey cilantro salmon dish that Aunt Jac suggested. I’d try to sneak a bite, but apparently I’m not supposed to eat honey until I’m 1. Won’t be long now…

As you can see, this salad dressing recipe makes me very happy.

Perhaps I too should consider watching what I eat and lose a few ounces considering my role in the upcoming weddings…

You thought I was gonna say ring bearer, didn’t you?
