#WeekendCoffeeShare: Memorial Day Weekend

Good Sunday morning! Thank you for joining me. Come on in for some drinks.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I will keep it short today since I have to head to church in a little while. The weather this week has been very nice but it seems like Mother Nature is going to make today a cloudy and rainy day. I’m glad I’m not doing much – just church, nap, and exercise.

If we were having coffee, I would ask you about your week. Did anything excited happened? Anything great, something worth celebrating? Anything awful?

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I got the job! I would tell you although I feel relieved that I can finally stop hunting for a job, I am nervous about whether I can handle two jobs at 50-55 hours a week even though I believe I can.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I went to the doctor for my black toenails. The doctor thought my black toenails were black nail polish. He asked me twice. In my mind, I thought, what kind of doctor are you? I already told you I never paint my nails. 

In the end, about two minutes later, he concluded it’s blood beneath my toenails, which was not at all helpful. Don’t you think I know that? I wanted to snap at him but didn’t want to piss off the doctor. He told me toenails grow upward and therefore, the bloody toenail will eventually become toenails and then I can trim it like regular toenails. He said if it’s still the same after three months, then I should go back to see him.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I had another blood test this past week and discovered my thyroid and parathyroid are not behaving again. It’s been a while since they did that and it’s very frustrating but I feel like I now know the root of my other health problems.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I went on another wonderful hike yesterday. This time, my mom joined me on the hike. At first, I was worried she might create a fuss but it turned out, hiking with a group gave her something else beside making me miserable. Although it was not a long hike, the view was breathtaking and I had a lot of fun chatting with other people.

If we were having coffee, I would thank you for joining me this week and I would wish the readers in the U.S. a peaceful Memorial Day weekend, and hopefully, I will be back next weekend.

  1. Excellent news about the job Lady!
    No so much so this medical stuff you’re dealing with. I pray with you for quick answers & healing.
    My essay has details of my week and im still looking forward to my surgery.
    Writing has been a challenge partly because I can’t sit in front of the computer gor very long or focus. I hoping all that changes after a certain nerve bundle is given more room by my surgeon. All the best. Gary

  2. It is exciting to hear that you got the job. Congratulations! Also, I like to think of your mother going out on the hike with you. An energetic change of pace? I enjoy reading about your activities. Thank you!

    Memorial Day is a sad one for me, because my father was the cemetery sexton until he was in his mid-90s. Each of the seven of us kids, as we were old enough, worked as his grounds-keeping assistants each spring to get the cemetery grounds and graves ready for the Memorial Day service and visitors. My mother served overseas in the Navy during WW II, and my father also served in the Pacific theatre in the Army.

    I have felt like a stranger, each time I’ve gone back, even though the home town is only 25 miles away. Especially for the interment of my parents’ ashes.

    1. Thank you for stopping by for coffee. Hiking with my mother was definitely a lovely change of pace. I hope we can do it more often. It might mend our relationship.

      I’m sorry about your sad Memorial Day.

  3. Thank you for another coffee chat, Yinglan. Congratulations on getting the job and I hope you can juggle things okay. Also hope you can get your thyroid back on track soon. My auto-immune disease has been in remission for 5 years, which is such a relief. I know how tired you can get when they play up and also the stress of sorting out medication. All the best with that.
    Best wishes,
