Taking a break

I'm going to take a little break from blogging.  I have an online course I need to finish on infection control in a skilled nursing facility from the Centers for Disease Control.  It's about as exciting as it sounds, but it has to be done.  It consists of 24 modules and I've made it through 12.
Today I was called into work at 8:30 am because the state inspectors arrived for our annual survey.  When that happens, all managers have to come in and stay till they leave each day, so it's going to be a long week.  We couldn't believe they showed up on Mothers Day.  A lot of people had their plans messed up for the day...
Also, Bob's mom is doing very poorly.  You may remember that she came to my facility  for Rehab, but now is declining rapidly.  It's been a mixed blessing having her with me.  Bob's sister also works there as a dietician, so we are both able to check on her often.  It's hard though to see this big decline and then step back and keep working.  She is a Christian, so we know there is a much better place for her, and we are praying it won't be long.  
See you soon.

Oh Mari!
I feel your pain. How rude and really kind of disrespectful to have the state folks come on mother's day - like really?!???
Prayers for it all to go well this week. And especially prayers for Bob's Mom and family. 🙏 Sending loving thoughts to you all. Smart to take a break and focus on those important areas in your life and make sure you take care of you too 💜 xo

I saw this when I got back from my Mother's Day trip and then I saw too that Bob's mother had passed away. What a crazy combination of real life!! I pray that you are having the strength for each new day. ((((Hugs))))

I've had you on my mind for days (this is the first time with stable internet).

My thoughts continue now that I've read your post before your break. And hugs to your family.
