We have several staff members off work unexpectedly - illness, surgery, and a couple of family member deaths. Hard to staff when 20% are out. For some reason, there were 3 night... Read more
Weather It's My Knee ...
Saturday, August 08, 2009      1 comments

Ouch. My left knee has been swelling for about a week. I thought it was from the increased treadmill and walking, maybe squats. Upped my Motrin, been using analgesic rub, and wearing the knee brace at the gym. Last couple of days, wearing the kn... Read more
Good Intentions

Early this morning, I was reading blogs from the various groups I'm in. I came across one where a Sparker sounded desperate, talking about depression, racing thoughts, highs and lows. I read back on a few, and the Sparker actually mentioned sui... Read more

I tried to post Moon Walking, couldn't see it, re-entered it. There it was twice. Edited it, and still there. So, here, I've changed it. ... Read more

Ups and Downs, But Better All Around

I was so excited last month when I re-entered ONE-derland - finally cracked that 200 plateau. Maintained for a couple of weeks, actually losing more. What happened this week?? Gained 3 pounds! Wha??? Where have I gone wrong, or have I? Maybe i... Read more
Burst of Energy at the End

Had a lazy day - yesterday I was up all day. Got off work in the morning, and one thing led to another and it was afternoon. Walked the pups (slowly in the heat), went to the gym and did a circuit and the treadmill. It was nearly midnight before... Read more

Another Friday night in the Emergency Department. We're lucky - we have a select patient population - Veterans, Active Duty personnel & their dependents, military retirees. Tends to keep down participants in the knife and gun club that the other... Read more

Moderately busy night in the Emergency Department - nothing terribly exciting or awful. Got home and decided to give the pups a long walk - it's been too darn hot lately, but today was cooler and cloudy. We went nearly 2 miles. Samurai was thri... Read more
Unplanned Rest Day Became Got 'er Done!
Wednesday, July 29, 2009      1 comments

I got up at 0400 (4A), so I could get all my stuff done - washing clothes, dishes, setting up uniforms, working out, walking the dogs, cleaning the cat boxes (ick). Great plans, but I started with the clothes and dishes, and I was still sleepy 2... Read more

Took my car into the Subaru dealer for routine stuff today. Had my gym bag packed, so I went directly there afterward. Forgot to pack my gym shoes!!! Can't work out in sandals, duh. Grrrr! Went home. ... Read more
busy day
Monday, July 27, 2009      5 comments

Had one of those "too tired to sleep" days yesterday. Got off in the morning, staggered around the neighborhood to walk the pups, washed my face and brushed my teeth, and tried to sleep. And tried, and tried. Read some, watched some TV, fell asl... Read more

My massage therapist and her husband have a cabin in the Jemez Mountains (HEY-mez, not Gem-ez). John inherited the cabin from his father, and he & Deb have been going there for at least a decade that I know. As she kneads and pummels me, Deb and... Read more
Dang Blast It!

Grrr. My left knee is swelling and hurting again. I had hoped it wouldn't do that anymore, since 1) I've lost more than 35 pounds since winter; 2) it's hot, not cold, weathe... Read more
