Day 2 of insanity! Back to the lab and barely caught up with the extras before 4pm. I went to the gym after work and got in an hour of weight lifting. I'm beat. got home and went to the field to mow. Found out that the ground is wet and when I slid several times on the front hill gave up and parked. too dangerous. Gonna go to bed and start all over again tomorrow.
Be blessed all and keep Sparkin'!

Partner is off and lab nurse called in. I got the notice about 5:30am. went in and took over the lab and did what I could. it was a full day and I was up and moving for about 7 hours. Problems stem from the lab nurse's insistence that she 'knows her job' and can function 'as she goes'. that means that she doesn't stock the lab for the next day and doesn't check the orders to make sure they've been put in. I kept pulling up patients who did not have orders for labs, had the wrong orders, or had incomplete orders. I corrected what I could and prepped for tomorrow..but I expect to be back in the lab. Partner has left the impression that she has been dumped on and that everyone makes her work the lab and hall. We checked the chart today (the one she insisted on creating to make the work load 'fair' for everyone) and lo and behold...she's had 3 out of about 25 slots in the last 6 months...I don't think that would be called overused. so ...with that being said, we have several issues to discuss in a team meeting next Thursday.
I skipped WW tonight and after being pulled away from the gym this morning...I'll just go in to work out in the morning. I'm just bone tired...not a good feeling.
Still working on the new painting and finishing up some other work. I'm joining the art guild next month...the church appointments will be settled down for the summer and I should have time to stay involved.
I heard about a lost art that almost seems gross...but I think I'd like to try it. Has anyone heard of 'hair art' where people took hair and wove it into jewelry, broaches, flowers and anything that caught their fancy. I've looked on the internet and can't find a pattern.
Well, off to bed. Be blessed all and keep Sparkin'!!

    I know our daughter is planning on ordering a necklace or bracelet made with her horse's mane hair. It's beautiful.

Wow, sounds like your co=worker isn't real responsible..thank goodness for the patients that you are there, otherwise things would really be messed up.

I hope you have a great day.

    I think that hair art is a Scottish thing. Some times done when a loved one dies, thir hair is cut off and jewelry is made to remember them by.
I can relate to your tiring day. I just retired after 30 plus years of nursing. Most of those in ICU. I had way too many days like that. It is such a relief not to be facing them any more. emoticon

    In olden times, every lady had a wooden container for a hair receiver. I think it was from their brushes/combs. Victorian art maybe. I would think it'd be best with a long bunch of hair from a hair cut. Mourning jewelry.

Easter Sunday April 20

Sunday, April 20, 2014

Hallelujah!!! Jesus is alive!!!
I sang for all three services and then headed to have lunch with DD and her in-laws. Got to see GS again in action with all his cousins. He played basketball with his dad and walked through a petting zoo. today he decided he did not like horses. After 10 hours of constant movement...we left and headed for Honey's for a nap. I'm wiped out! This has been a full week! Back to the gym in the morning and planning for next weekend when I take off to be the music director at a women's retreat. There is still so much buzz going on about last Thursday and the Senior Day. It was interdenominational and the joy that was experienced all day long was tremendous!!!In these troubled times we need something to smile about. Love that I was able to be there!!
I'm getting ready for the week...back to work in the morning. Partner will be off a couple of days so it will be swamped.
Be blessed all and know that you are so loved! Keep Sparkin'!!

I have a praise!!! April 19

Had a full day...but had such an intervention from the Lord at the end of it. When I got home this afternoon I hurried to the field to mow. After about 90 minutes I noticed white smoke coming from beneath the blade plate. I had driven through the ashes of the burn piles and thought it was just the dust stuck to the blades. What I could NOT see was that the smoke was coming from the deck, and it wasn't just dust. A stick had jammed up against the rotator for the blade and the friction set dried leaves that had blown into the belt area on fire. Sister was running up the hill, neighbors were running across the field from their houses (they keep a close eye on us old ladies)with buckets of water, and I was getting away from the mower as fast as I could. Within minutes it was all under control and one of the neighbors jumped on and drove it to their backyard for a quick clean and check. I was washed off and back in the field within 30 minutes. Lot's of 'what if's' went through my mind. I appreciate the Lord for His mercy. I was able to get the garden area, the upper field, and both sides of the road done. I'm worn out. Heading for a hot bath and bed.
Be blessed all and keep Sparkin'!!

Just not moving fast today. Slept in and just did some little things around the house. Went to get a massage, got my nails done, paid some bills, went to the gym and then to DD's for dinner and to play with GS. Just worn out. will go watch GS swim tomorrow and then home to cut grass. Spring is coming in strong. Still chilly in the morning..but hot in the afternoon. Flowers are up everywhere. Love it.
Be blessed all and keep Sparkin'!!

    With all you do, I can imagine once in a while you need to slow down. A little. So glad your family is so close.
