The Prevention and Management of Disruptive Behavior classes were much better than I expected. There were 5 of us from the Emergency Department (4 from night shift), about 40 in the class. The first class was about why the VA is pushing the clas... Read more

Think I'm finally on the mend - only coughed a few times (not for 10 minutes at a time), itchy nose that's snotty, but not bad. Yeah! Quiet enough at work tonight to actually E-file my taxes. Don't know why I hate it so - I generally get $ back,... Read more

Still under the weather. Worked 2 nights ago, had to call off last night. Took the new Nyqil severe cold and flu stuff. Yikes, staggered up 10 hours later to let the dogs out and feed the critters. Sniffle, sneeze, cough. Wish the stuff worked l... Read more

Baby Come Back
Thursday, April 02, 2015      9 comments

Finally got my car, Rufus the red, back from the shop. My insurance company (USAA) paid for all but $250 of the repairs, plus the rental car. Since the rental was an automatic, I actually had to sit a minute and reacquaint myself to my standard ... Read more

I was basically out of service yesterday. Had stayed up until 0400 or so, trying to sleep but being wakened by coughing fits. Finally got to sleep, but was woken up about 0800 by the garbage pickup trucks. Cracked an eye at the clock, and decide... Read more

This is the blog I had been working on before midnight last night, before a patient acted out. I got some minor injuries (scratches & bruises) and it took more than an hour to get cleared by the emergency room doc (nothing like having to get che... Read more

Oh, Pretty Woman

Walked the pups 2 hours today. The weather dudes say a cold front is moving in fast . When I started the walk, it was about 65, but sunny - comfortable with the sunshine with me wearing shorts, tank top, and sandals. Then, the wind started! By t... Read more

My car is STILL in the shop. They had to order more parts (because nobody in town stocks Subaru parts - not even the junk yards). I hope to get it back next week. Meanwhile, I'm driving the rental behemoth. Compared to my little Outback, this th... Read more
Camelot (reprise)
Monday, March 23, 2015      7 comments

I admit I waffled about going alone to see Camelot. Nearly didn't go, but at the last minute, I went. Loved it. Met a woman in the seat behind me, who said she'd bought a late ticket. We were up in the "nosebleed" section, but some of the rows i... Read more
