Everyone's been wondering how my new co-worker is working out and I'm happy to report that she is a super fast learner and fits right in with our style of patient care. It's only been two weeks and we've already left her alone for a few hours to open/close.
Since we don't have a doctor on Monday and she's doing so well I now have the day off and don't have to work until Wednesday! I have lots to do at home, including getting the kitchen walls primed and ready for a new paint job to go with the new countertop and dishwasher I ordered that will soon be delivered.

I'll take a break from scrubbing tents and painting walls on Sunday and head up to Kettle Moraine to try out my new tent that I ordered from Amazon. Great timing to get a new tent, right? It came today and I'm hoping it will be a little warmer than either of the other ones I currently have. It's also designed to be better ventilated so condensation on the inside is hopefully less. I've got perfect weather for it, we've gone from too hot around here to lows in the 40's. But, it will be sunny with little wind, actually the kind of weather I really love. Unfortunately it never lasts long in Wisconsin. Yes, we went directly from running the AC to having the heat on at night this week.

While I'm busy with all my projects this weekend he's off to the racetrack with the fifth wheel for the weekend. I'm glad he's getting to do something fun instead of working double shifts.
At the end of the month I'm meeting Sharon for a long weekend of hiking and friendship at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. This morning I finally had the time to look into some things for us to do and I don't think we'll have any trouble keeping ourselves occupied. I hope I don't tire her out too much on her "relaxing" getaway!

As usual I'm way behind reading everyone else's blogs. Seems I almost get caught up only to fall weeks behind again. With my hours getting cut in half within the next week I'll soon see what it's like to be caught up on things, maybe I'll even have time to start reading books on my Kindle again!
More from Cave Point to come, tomorrow it's time for a little wave action.
