Loose Budgie
Friday, July 02, 2010      3 comments

There's been a green budgie in my yard for a few days. It won't let me get closer than about 3 feet from it. I feed the wild birds, and have a big tree out front. I restocked the seed 2 days ago, but the feeders are almost empty already, and I d... Read more

Wednesday, June 30, 2010      6 comments

Not the turnovers we eat, darn it. My change from days to night shift. Stayed up all night, got the dishes and laundry done, hit the gym at 0430. Treadmill and circuit tra... Read more
Last Minute Rush for Steps
Wednesday, June 30, 2010      2 comments

I spent the whole day lazing around - I'd stayed up last night, catching up on TIVO's shows - fell asleep about 03 for a couple of hours. I should have walked the pusp then, but I was thinking I'd watch just "one more show, OK, another one" unt... Read more
Rainy Afternoon

Much Better Night
Sunday, June 27, 2010      3 comments

I went in just before midnight last night - my short night (8 hoours). Much better - only about 3 patients left, and, since it wasn't a major shift change, much quieter. Very mellow thru the night. I checked on what had happened to a couple of ... Read more
Let's Use Our Indoor Voices, Please!
Saturday, June 26, 2010      10 comments

Last night at work was hectic. I was there 15 minutes and felt the tension building up, like my head was going to explode. Why, you ask? Because it was so noisy! At change of shift, people leaving are trying to tell oncoming people what's been d... Read more

I was at the gym early htis morning, doing the treadmill - hey, 4 miles in 60 minutes 40 seconds! Getting faster. Since I did the circuit yesterday, and will do it Wednesday, I wondered what I could do today for extra. Ah-hah! The elliptical! ... Read more
Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere

Making it, of course, winter solstice in the Southern hemisphere. For me, it's the longest day, the beginning of summer. Here in Albuquerque, NM, sunrise was at 0553 (5:53A), and sunset will be at 2024 (8:24P) We're going to a high of 96 today. ... Read more
