So sorry you had a crummy day LP. You nor your dad needed that extra stress. I had never heard of pay parking at a hospital until several years ago when my mother-in- law was in hospital, had to make sure I had Loonies on me all time. Crazy! If your dad happens to be in Langley Hospital, I can advise you on some free parking. Just guessing, he might be, because I can't remember if White Rock has a pay lot or just street parking. Anyway hope tomorrow is a better day. Stay strong!

I pray you'll have a better day today. Try to take a deep breath and remember who's really in charge.

I'm sorry you & your dad had to deal with extra stress! Our bodies, minds and spirits respond to stress by becoming stronger, though, so think how strong you must be by now! Hang in there! And I hope you get a break before your strength is tested again!

Thanks, everyone. Dad got moved to a ward finally, which take a humungous amount of stress on me. When he was in emergency I needed to be there most of the day and my sister until 9 or 10 when they got him settled for the night. Now the nurses can give him much more attention and I basically need to be there to feed him lunch and meet with the doctor(s).

I met with the head of parking yesterday (who I know from being there all summer last year) and showed him the ticket and receipt. I told him it was taken care of but he might like to see it. He was really ticked off and thanked me for letting him know. I hate getting someone in trouble, but I want to save other people the same aggravation.

I'm glad you are able to relax a bit and not spend so much time at the hospital. Go get your hair done or something.

What you said. Or, a pedicure. Having a foot massage, etc., does wonders.

Thanks, ladies, but I will settle for getting my piles of laundry folded, the mountain of recycling sorted and taken out, and some healthy cookies made for DH and my lunches! Getting all that out of the way will be a huge relief.

Oh, and I am getting caught up on my food network shows while folding!

Oh you should come to SE Ontario--we've had the coldest and wettest spring...and this whole week the forecast is rain...so far, the weatherman was right. My garden will NEVER get planted if it doesn't stop raining--only one of the gardens was dry enough to rototill before this week of rain arrived...not having the bounty of veggies would be heartbreaking...not to mention add quite a bit to the food budget.
