And Then The Sky Opened
Sunday, July 25, 2010      4 comments

I was really hoping my new phone would get delivered by UPS today. The tracking info said it arrived in Albuquerque about noon yesterday. What, they don't deliver on Saturdays anymore? Shoot - with my bedroom door closed (to protect the birds fr... Read more

Wonderful Sleep
Thursday, July 22, 2010      7 comments

Since we were relatively overstaffed last night, the others let me leave about 0400. (By the time I'd finished up the last minute stuff, it was almost 0430, but close enough). Got home, washed my face off and brushed my teeth, took my meds, fed ... Read more
Plethora or Dearth
Thursday, July 22, 2010      5 comments

Or, Feast or Famine, as the case may be. We've been short-staffed due to injuries, and I was sick last week for a couple of nights. This week, TPTB have assigned 2 RNs from other areas to us. Came into work tonight, and we had 6 (six!) RNs, 3 te... Read more
Today in History
Tuesday, July 20, 2010      7 comments

20 July 1969 - Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. I did 4 miles on the treadmill. Not as good as a moonwalk, but I didn't have to leave Earth to do it. Walked the pups 1... Read more
Budgies
Monday, July 19, 2010      6 comments

I blogged a couple of times about the stray (feral?) parakeet that's been hanging around my yard. He's still there - I have "conversations" with him nearly evey day (I whistle and talk to him; he chirps and chuckles back). I've been making sure ... Read more
We're Having a Heat Wave
Sunday, July 18, 2010      7 comments

When I was watching the early morning news, I saw the weather dudes were predicting about 100 today. It was 0630, and 75 already. I immediately harnessed up the pups, and ... Read more
Back to Work

I feel soooo much better today. It's amazing how not feeling sick just makes you feel wonderful. So, I get back to work, and we have more staff on duty than patients - wha... Read more
Vertigo

No, I haven't been watching the classic movies, darn it. I'd had a good day yesterday, until it was time to get some sleep before work. I'd worked out, walked the pups, do... Read more
It's Africa Hot
Wednesday, July 14, 2010      4 comments

That's a quote from Bilouxi Blues. I thought of it as I started out of the house about 2145 (9:45P) tonight to walk the pups. It was 84 - and seemed warmer tonight that it di... Read more
Tired But Educated
Tuesday, July 13, 2010      7 comments

Oof - spent the day at an all day class. Learned about interviewing cardiac, neuro, and pulmonary patients. Even with breaks, it was tiring. Fanny fatigue in the hard chairs. ... Read more

Night Shift Rules!
Saturday, July 10, 2010      6 comments

After blogging last evening about how horrible it was (and believe me, it was frustrating), we night shifters took over when the evening crew (docs & nurses) left. We have one doc at night, and we don't have separate teams. Generally, the pace i... Read more
What A Mess
Saturday, July 10, 2010      6 comments

Got to work this evening, and TPTB (the powers that be) have made changes in the patient flow in the Emergency Department - again! Total cluster when we got in, and, almost 3 hours later, it's not clearing out as fast as I'd like. ... Read more
Urgh, Sick Last Night
Thursday, July 08, 2010      6 comments

Since I worked overtime the night before, and didn't given the pups a walk, I made sure I took them on a longer walk than usual (2.6 miles) before I went to bed. Slept well, felt fine. No problem. Got to work - about 3 hours later I was having b... Read more
