the weekend that was

After having a 3 day weekend, I am convinced that someone, somehow in the past, made a huge mistake and decided to make the work week consisting of 5 days and the weekend of only 2.

To me 4 and 3 sound like a much better deal, agree?

So yes, my 3 day weekend was great, I had time to relax, start new projects, continue with other projects, went to the beach, celebrated my husband's birthday.... And now, I am ready to take over a 4 day week, LOL!!!

Here are some of the pictures I took on Sunday at Smith Cove Beach, it was a nice sunny day!

snorkeling wasn't so good, visibility was kind of crappy
I also found a very cool spot of a natural pool right by the ocean, this is it...

But not all was fun and games. On Saturday I had a psychologist visit me at home for a personal interview on becoming a Big Sister for the program of Big Brothers & Big Sisters.

The interview was very long (about 2 hours) and very direct, with all sorts of questions about me, my family, my friend, life, career, how I handle situations, how I see life and certain aspects of it.

In fact many of those questions I never even asked myself before.

Overall I think it went pretty good, since most of the questions were pretty personal, I don't believe I did good or bad, I just was as honest as possible and hopefully the organization will find me fit to be a "Big Sister/mentor" to a little girl/boy someday. We shall see what comes next...

Yesterday we went out to dinner to celebrate Mark's birthday. We had a fabulous meal at our favorite Sushi restaurant on the island, The Thai Orchid, as always we felt right at home, food and specially the service was top class.

And last but not least, I am happy to report that we have catch the second cat and I am taking her (B.T.K) to the vet this morning.

B.T.K. relaxing in our back yard
Since she is the momma cat, lately I've notice that her belly is getting pretty big and I am worried that perhaps she might be pregnant again, but after talking to the girl from CARE, she mentioned that perhaps it could be that she just got parasites and that might be the reason I've been noticing a big belly.

So today when the vet examines her, we will find out the reality of her case. Hoping for just parasites cause that would just be easier to solve. In case she is pregnant the Vet will only give her shots and de-worm her.

We'll keep you posted on her situation and please keep her in your mind and prayers so everything works out for the best.

Have a great Tuesday!

I liked that little tide pool quite a bit. I'll be glad when B.T.K. gets back home this evening.

I agree, the weekend needs to be long always!! I'll be praying that you hear some good news about being a Big Sister...that program is really great. Your pictures make me want to go on vacation permanently. Have a great week!

I'll come for a swim anytime!!
I guess you have to appreciate them being so serious about an interview like that - hope the outcome is positive, can't imagine it wouldn't be, they'd lucky to have your volounteer service.
I'm so pleased things are progressing with the kitties - it can be pretty heart wrenching. When we did the neutering project earlier in the year, the first 80!!! cats were pregnant, but the vets went ahead with the neutering. It's unbelieavebly sad and it's a tricky business catching a female in time. Pepper, our constantly pregnant feral cat got pregnant whilst still nursing Twinkle - it's her 3rd lot in less than a year.
Good luck with the continued neutering!
