Coach Nicole Would Not Approve!

Thursday, March 01, 2012

After the "Recipes NOT Approved by Chef Meg", here are the LOL critters showing us how NOT to workout!


Train carefully for the runs - don't just get out there and give it your all!



Really? A one and ....



Increase the weights slowly - do not overstrain



Some exercises aren't really necessary



Pick exercises you really want to do and will stick with



But, do stick with them!



Don't scare the children or friends



Don't let the machines do all the work



Remember non-scale victories!

Bleh - Vacation is Over

Thursday, March 01, 2012

I had another "staycation" last week. Got to work this evening, all happy and rested - 10 minutes in, I was grumpy! Short staffed, very busy Emergency Department and lots of people in the waiting room getting really upset. Once again, the inpatient beds are tight, so our admissions are rocks - taking up the beds we could have used for those waiting to be seen. GRRR! I'm throwing this blog in just to get one done. Hope to have a better one after midnight.

    THIS IS TOTALLY ADORABLE. I WON'T GET MY VACATION UNTIL THE WEEK AFTER EASTER.

    I can totally understand your frustration. Someone needs to come up with a way to have multiple beds triaged in such a way that at least all the patients who should be lying down could be. Then once they are in a bed they think will still complain about how long they have been waiting there. Then an emergency accident and the ambulance is bringing in three critical and you have to ask if it is a full moon, all your origination and triage goes right out the bay doors!

You can only hope for a slow night, that would be the best of both worlds in your very stressful job! Hang in there!!

Now I Don't Feel Quite So Stupid

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

My friend sent me an Email with these pictures! For a change, I added the captions -


Hanging High!



Let's see - if I wash my car, it'll rain ...


Where's my purse?


Hey, lady!!


At least the baby is strapped in


Hot pot, not


How blonde is she?


How many feet in a mile?


How low is that house clearance?


Snakes really eat themselves?


Laptop protection plan - not so good


Half CD - not so good, really


I think someone needs computer classes!

    How many of us can relate to the "Hey Lady" with the groceries and purse on top of her car? The little grandma with the whiteout...too funny! I might be guilty of using a yellow highlighter!

    I just realized what I thought was a tennis ball taped onto the laptop is really an apple. So, I guess I should have titled that picture "NOT an Apple!"
