The Last Week

  Hello Friends!
     I have been so busy the last couple of weeks. With the job change, my fabulous trip to PA, house guests, my pharmacist on vacation last week, etc.
   When my pharmacist is on vacation there are tasks that she takes care of that  I or Michelle have to do. Also when you have relief pharmacists you have to help them, they only work enough to know how to verify RXs in the system. I have been trying to train Michelle how do do all the patient assistance. I wish that I had more time to spend with her. With Terry on vacation it made it very hard.
  Then there were lots of people coming by to visit me...
These arrived from different people on Thursday morning by 10am. Cake for breakfast and lunch!
Monday night the staff of the pharmacy went out for dinner. There were 6 of us.. All of the relief pharmacists came too. Yummy Italian!
Wednesday night I tried a new fancy resturant in Asheboro with my friend Caroline. This is tomatoe bisque with crabmeat and carmelized onions.
Then we spilt an entree of diver scallops over fettuccini. I will definitely go back to Bia's Gourmet Hardware for special occasions.
  So you get the idea. My social calendar was very full the last week.
   On top of that Rich left on Thursday to visit his family in CT and MA.  His flight was cancelled on Thursday night so he spent the night in Charlotte and flew out early the next morning. He got back yesterday afternoon.
  I am trying to work on my packing skills. I think that as I get into the job that things will be easier.
I think that Binx was ready to go with me!
Or maybe he didn't want me to go?
  So I hope to get some stitching in this week and to catch up on my blog reading/commenting.

Well one more trip to the bathroom before I have to get on a plane.

Thanks for traveling along.
Have a great week!

How wonderful that your friends took time to Celebrate YOU! Safe travels!
love Annette

Carol said...

Awww... Binx is going to miss you, Chris! Good luck with your traveling--you'll get very used to packing after a few trips :)

I think Binx didn't want you to go - you're having a busy time these days Chris.

Penny said...

Binx looks very comfortable. I think he is trying to tell you that the most important thing is already packed. :) Hope you have a safe trip, and maybe fit in a little fun, too.

I think Binx doesn't want you to go. It might be an adjustment for your cats with your new travel schedule. It's nice that everyone was feting you and treating you to cake. I hope the new job and the travel agree with you!

Barb said...

Have a good trip! I love Binx in the suitcase. I don't think he wanted you to leave! What nice celebrations!!

Julie said...

Have a safe trip.
You must be very loved by your colleagues.
LOL @ Binx!

Best of luck to you in this new adventure! Love a travlin' cat!

Beth said...

The meal at Bia's looks outstanding...I am drooling! I think a Traveling Cat Companion would be a good idea.

Chris: Since cats cannot throw themselves on the floor and have tantrums when the suitcase comes out, they decide to try and sabotage your packing, Blondie does the same thing, she goes into a slight depression.
I hope your new job is everything you want.


Susan said...

Well, yes packing the cat doesn't leave much room for other less essential things, like clothes!! LOL!! I have the same problem, as soon as the suitcase comes out there are cats in it, on it and around it. We seem to have more fights when it's out also. It looks like you had some awesome food and fun. I have had more trouble flying into and out of Charlotte then any other airport in the country Rich didn't happen to be on US Air did he? I have more problems with that airline than any other.

Safe travelling and isn't it funny the way cats climb into the suitcase. Your cakes looked like they were delicious.
