A Busy Little Week
Monday, February 15, 2010      1 comments

We begin the week with Valentine's Day on Sunday. Sometimes called a "Hallmark Holiday" because of all the emphasis on sending greeting cards, the origins are somewhat confusing. There were at least 3 martyrs named Valentine or Valentinus who ar... Read more
Lots of Stress
Saturday, February 13, 2010      5 comments

Last night when I got to work, we had all of the beds in the Emergency Department full. Eleven of them had "A"s by them - meaning we were waiting for admissions - and told there were NO beds in house to admit them to. 11 out of 13 beds. Sheesh! ... Read more

I got up about 1330 (1:30 PM) today - went to the gym and did my 4 miles on the treadmill and the circuit training for strength. The weather turned a little nasty while I was... Read more
Taco, Taco, Who Ate the Taco?
Tuesday, February 09, 2010      3 comments

Urgh, I ate the taco. And the burrito and chalupa. Put me 500 calories over for the day. I enjoyed eating them - then took a nice long walk (3.3 miles) with the pups. Feel stuffed now. Do they swell in the belly? I swear my pants are tighter aft... Read more
End of an Era

The space shuttle had its last planned night launch today, 2/8/2010. I don't know what they're going to do in the future, but on the news this morning, they said there's only a few flights left. Shoot - there go my dreams of being a shuttle astr... Read more
Good Thing I Worked Out Early
Sunday, February 07, 2010      2 comments

Got up this morning after just a few hours sleep - read too much last night. I went to Furr's cafeteria for breakfast - tried to make some good choices with lots of fruit, scrambled eggs, pancakes with sugar-free syrup. Drooled over, but didn't ... Read more

I was scheduled to go into work tonight. I'd had one of those get to bed late and woke up early. Argh.Critters tried to get me up when they knew I was awake. I kept trying... Read more
Always Check Your Schedule
Friday, February 05, 2010      4 comments

I have a fairly fixed schedule at work - it's important for night shift workers to know when they're coming to work and have set days off to plan for dental and doctor appointments, meeting friends for meals, etc. Imagine my surprise last night,... Read more
Another Day, Another Dollar
Friday, February 05, 2010      4 comments

Not too bad tonight at work (so far!) Last nght started out horrible and got better after midnight. Just fussy tonight - someone pulled out his IV line, someone else asked me the same questions 5 times. Stuff like that. ... Read more
Nyquil Nights

Had my class yesterday, and fried my brain on the EKG interpretation. Ay-yi-yi! Got home tired from sitting all day - even though I did laps around the halls at the breaks.... Read more
Class Tomorrow

My work buddy & I are signed up for an advanced EKG class tomorrow. All day, 8A - 4P. Yikes! What a way to spend our day off. But, the good news is, I don't have to go in for overtime tonight. (They called about 6P to see if I could come in, and... Read more
Just Another Sleepy Sunday

Slept most of yesterday, got up for a few hours, and slept again. Just been kind of draggy today. Managed to walk the pups the 3.3 mile walk around the neighborhood - another... Read more
Not Enough Time In the Day
Friday, January 29, 2010      6 comments

I'm having one of those White Rabbit days - not time to do everything like I want to. Snowy again this morning, so I just now (evening) whipped the pups around the block and did t... Read more
