Curse of the Electronics

Saturday, August 07, 2010      7 comments

Electronic equipment doesn't like me. I dropped a cell phone into the dog water bowl one time when I bent over to put it on the floor after filling the bowl. Splash! They don't work so good after that. Read more

What Happened??

Friday, August 06, 2010      6 comments

Last night was steady, but OK - until 0700 - when 2 ambulances and a walk-in chest pain came in. Yikes! There were 3 of us RNs, so we each managed to get a patient settled, labs and lines in, and made the notes. Out by 0800 with the day crew ta... Read more

Another Day Off From the Treadmill

Thursday, August 05, 2010      3 comments

Yep - after getting a few hours sleep, I decided to blow off the treadmill again. The knee is improving, but still a little twitchy. Usually, I can blame it on the weather fronts - and then it hurts a lot more than this. Either the Elations (Glu... Read more

A Rest Week, So to Speak

Wednesday, August 04, 2010      7 comments

I started Saturday with not going to the gym because my stomach was cramping and my knee was achy. Didn't feel up to it on Sunday, altho I was felling a little better. Yest... Read more

Freedom? No, Thanks

Tuesday, August 03, 2010      6 comments

I've been reading about parakeet care, since I never had birds before. Susposedly, with patience, I can hand tame them. My guys haven't read the same books. I approach th... Read more

The Evolution of Jokes

Monday, August 02, 2010      5 comments

Feeling better today, but took it easy. Had some idle thoughts about jokes about certain people. First, there were the Chuck Norris jokes: When Chuck Norris does pushups, he doesn't push himself up, he pushes the world down. Read more

Urgh

Saturday, July 31, 2010      7 comments

I walked the pups this morning, dropped them back at the house, and then walked over to Golden Corral for brunch. I really planned to go to the gym afterward - even changed into my workout clothes, but got the tummy rumbles. Decided I'd better ... Read more

Hump Day

Wednesday, July 28, 2010      3 comments

Flipping around from awake in the days to trying to sleep today. Got up at 0400, have done the dishes, washed clothes & linens, walked the pups. I uncovered the birds when... Read more

Our Yearly Dementia Test

Tuesday, July 27, 2010      11 comments

This one is making it around the internet - I got it as an Email. I never can leave anything alone, so I added pix from the lol sites. It's that time of year for us to take our annual senior citizen test. Exercise of the brain is as impo... Read more

When The Rains Come, Watch Out!

Tuesday, July 27, 2010      3 comments

I couldn't walk the pups yesterday - everytime I started to, it was raining. This is not a good idea with small, fluffy dogs. "Princess" Shalako doesn't like to get her toes or face wet, and "Macho" Samurai like to splash thru the puddles. Eithe... Read more

I Think I've Been A Nurse Too Long

I was looking at the newspaper while I was on hold trying to call report on an admission this morning. I glanced at the weather section, and saw the projected temps for the next few days: Read more

And Then The Sky Opened

Sunday, July 25, 2010      4 comments

I was really hoping my new phone would get delivered by UPS today. The tracking info said it arrived in Albuquerque about noon yesterday. What, they don't deliver on Saturdays anymore? Shoot - with my bedroom door closed (to protect the birds fr... Read more
