I was awakened around 5:30 this morning (lab techs are evil). The rain was absolutely pouring down. I love rain more than most people, but even I want a break. Some people in San Jose south of me have been flooded out of their homes, and the Oro... Read more
Does it have to be Monday?

I've been retired for almost two years now, but for some reason Monday still bums me out. Yesterday I reported the morning CNA. Yes, I'm old an... Read more
Cloudy Sunday

The last couple of mornings, I've wakened shivering like it's twenty below (it isn't). The room is more than adequately heated and I do have blankets. They take my temperature twice a day, so I know I haven't had a fever since I've been in here.... Read more
Not-so-random stuff

I was stalled out on a complex lace shawl and several times I thought I'd have to give up. But with the help of the wonderful folks on Ravelry I got it figured out (move the marker over -- who knew?). So not only is this beautiful design going t... Read more

Today I met with the new case manager Janice and the new social worker Valerie. I told them I'm tired of withering in this bed. I have only been in a wheelchair twice since June. I can't remember the last shower I had. I told them I need to star... Read more

Tuesday fog

Not the weather, my brain. I'm actually a bundle of nerves today. Everything irritates the stuffing out of me. How hot my room is. My roommate. Three-quarters of the ads on TV. The food and coffee here. I've got a bad case of the cranky-crabbies... Read more
Monday, sort of

I think the staff here is getting a little confused. Last night's dinner was supposed to be beef stroganoff. Mine had one entire little cube of beef in it (I guess it's a good thing I like noodles and gravy). Then the evening nurse put my night ... Read more

My best friend Sacha came on Friday night bringing dinner for my birthday. Get ready for this -- she brought steak and lobster from Red Lobster! She even brought fine china dinner plates from her home. I was just floored. At one point she asked... Read more

Is it naptime yet?
Monday, February 27, 2017      12 comments

They these rooms hot. Add that to a poor night's sleep and I'm kind of drowsy. Nap is out of the question right now so I'm watching Food Network and trying to relax. I should have known I couldn't keep myself to just one. I'm also going to ... Read more

Today I retired my sister's picture as my profile image. I'm torn between wanting it there forever and knowing for a fact that she'd tell me it was time after two and a half years. My best friend came for a visit yesterday bringing the care... Read more

Yesterday I was a mess. I was shaky, I was so tense. I even freaked out when I downloaded Microsoft Office to my laptop and saw Excel (bad flashback to last job). Deep breath, I know it's only software. I'll even use it at some point, but not ri... Read more
