I was told by she who must be obeyed that here was NO point in seeing the doctor as he could not put in stitches after the fact and she didn't feel like going to the doctor AFTER ALL (as she did not want to go without ME we had planned to go Saturday AM). Great- yesterday it still hurt to get water on it and don't even ask how much the hydrogen peroxide hurt on Friday.Thank goodness for Polysporin

    you're right I agree actually thank God it doesn't look any where's near as bad as Friday it seems to have closed up nicely. I guess I am lucky I have a high platelet count. I won't tell you about some of the mishaps I had as a kid with knives then . emoticon emoticon yeah it was weird seeing the rear tire of the crown vic from INSIDE the car (the whole area around the rear wheel / fender was blown out).

    Tis your finger, my lord, and you should be the one to decide how to proceed with it. Is SHE an orthopedic nurse? I worked in orthopedics for about 6 weeks while in training. Saw lots of bad stuff. Hopefully it will not get infected. You might steri strip it. Probably should have had a tetanus shot at least.

friday

Friday, February 07, 2014

it was just another day at work (just waiting to get through it), then I was working on a vehicle (* real worthwhile use of my education and experience SARCASM)and then the screwdriver slipped and I sliced my finger open on some sheet metal should have gone for stitches but didn't feel like it. (its my bullheaded Englishman coming out). Still haven't looked at it since this am. I know if I show it to the doctor tomorrow I am going to get a blast - oh well.

    Hopefully it will not get infected. It sounded painful

Yes folks its THURSDAY and we all know what that means for MOST of us. Actually one of the better places in retrospect that I worked for was a Telecom company in Canada (sadly now a mere shadow of its former glorious self) and the only Nation wide one (contrary to what AGT and Bell etc tried to tell us). Any how I used to get Sunday Monday off and had to work Saturdays which were generally pretty quiet. So I would go in and do what I sort of needed to or wanted to. Of course the odd time the proverbial you-know-what-hit-the-fan and then there was the "pleasure of being PERMANENTLY on call (unless you were on vacation or SICK- of course I can recall getting a phone call when I was sick also- didn't go gee I wonder why LOL). I can remember for years after being laid off (well bumped actually I didn't have a helluva lof of seniority even though I was probably better qualified than most) I would get really stressed (to the point of feeling like I was jumping out of my skin) when the phone rang. Yuck I can still recall THAT feeling (after not working for them since May of 1994) PTSD anyone??

    I worked for the same company (in 411) and I still hate talking on the phone. I've been gone for probably 12 years now.

    I can relate. I worked for years as a mobile trauma nurse or on call for ICCU, CCU, and Dialysis. Hated the beeper. Hated the phone.

    For several years in my mis-spent youth, I worked in a telephone market research centre. I still hate to cold call someone I don't know. Family & friends are fine, but I'd rather go in person or send an e-mail than pick up the phone to make an appointment or order something.

Well thanks for not flaming me

Monday, February 03, 2014

Thanks for not flaming me. The really odd thing was at the time I didn't even know why she was there and I wish I had of as I fancied her IMMENSELY ALSO. It just destroys me to this day that she didn't come back - I am certain I would have dated her and even married her.The really pathetic thing is that Cheryl is ill and her metabolic doctor said her pancreas is in danger of failing . So she may pass away sometime soon. I really have to take better care of myself as I do NOT want my kids to have NO parents.

    You really do need to take care of yourself. My hubby has lost both parents and I have lost my mom.

Its funny how at least in my experience things I cannot EASILY change and that I thought I had forgotten about and dealt with in the past can comeback and bite me in the rear end. Lets just say its too bad I didn't have a time machine to go back to 1976 when a girl I went to junior high and elementary decided to go to the public high school but came to MY high school to see ME as she was interested in me but I flubbed it up.I was SO BUSY trying to find a missing bus pass and being stressed out over being in a new school that was NOT across the back alley from my parents house . I AM SUCH A PILLOCK!!! SIGH. I thought she was out of my league. BIGGER SIGH . Yeah I was thinner THEN. MOAN . I MISS YOU SO MUCH MARION!!!!

    It wasn't until just last year at age 60 that I found out a girl I had a crush on in high school had a similar crush on me. I now tell my boys to go for it -- the worst she can say is "No" and while it is disappointing, it's better to get a "No" than to miss a chance at a "yes".

And I only found out about a missed "yes" 43 years later. (That's ok I am married to the best "yes" I ever found.)

    Unrequited love. I had guys tell me when we were grown that they had a crush on me but never said anything. I told them they should have said something, I would have went out with them. LOL.
