Good Morning! It's the First Day of Spring!
The weather forecast calls for a warmer, sunny day, today, with temperatures reaching mid-40s in this part of the world. Overall, this makes for a nice first day of spring.
Just finished reading all of yesterday's Good Morning posts. Thoughts I'd respond to them here. . .
Joe - Never saw the staged production of "Alice in Wonderland". Saw it on television, though. Seems like you had a nice trip with J. Glad you both enjoyed your nephew's play-version of "Alice in Wonderland".
Lel Nel - Seems like you enjoy reading. If it weren't for words, sentences and paragraphs, I'd enjoy reading too! LOL! My wife LOVES to read. Me?!? Not so much, unfortunately. I also hold a casual interest in history, so the book about John Adams sounds interesting.
Steph - Sad to read about the break-up between your son and his girlfriend. I would HOPE that you would still be able to visit your grandson, and that you remain an important part of his life. Hopefully that won't change!
dianah - Good to read that your plans for the Ren Faire are in place. Also, nice to read about your group's plans to perform at the Temecula Bluegrass Festival in April. What fun plans to have for this years!
herring_RN - It's nice to read about you and your sisters helping out your step-mom as she prepares her return to her apartment. I'm sure that there is a fair amount of work to ensure that "fall prevention" is in order. As you know, "fall prevention" can take a lot of thought, planning, and implementation. (My father's apartment is set up to be as "fall prevention" as possible. Still, there's no guarantee that he WON'T fall, as he has proven a few months ago.) I wish your step-mom well as she continues on with plans to return to her apartment.
Tweety - Thoroughly enjoy the (many) photos that you've shared on Facebook, and look forward to the ones you share here! Glad that you're enjoying your vacation in Greece!
NSIME - It's so sad to read about your husband's hospitalization with DKA. How frightening! Managing diabetes is one hell of a life-style change, for sure! Still, he needs to take care of himself, especially if he wants to live a long and relatively healthy life, which can be done with well-managed diabetes! And you're right when you say that you're not his nurse. You're his wife. I wish you both well during this crazy and frightening time. (((Hugs)))
nursej22 - Seems like you have some nice yard work to do as the season of spring presents itself.
BCgradnurse - It's nice to read about your involvement with your synagogue, and your current project with next weekend's "mitzvah". (I learned a new term, "mitzvah", "good works".) Seems like a whole lot of wonderful and caring projects are underway!
Wow. . . It's 6:22 AM already. I started this thread about an hour ago. LOL! The play, "Skin Deep" that Amy was in was wonderful and funny! The four actors played their roles brilliantly! (Amy looked stunning as she played out her character!) It's not often that I go see a play. Usually I see musical productions. "Skin Deep" was a very heart-warming and funny play, and a pleasure to watch. Our after-play dinner out was wonderful, too! The food was delicious! I had an Italian dish with lobster (forgot the name of it, but it had pasta and lots of other Italian ingredients).
I'm working tonight, then I'm off for the next three nights. It's gonna be a busy week, though. Tomorrow, the nurses vote on the contract that the union and management settled on. I'll be helping out with the information-sharing and voting process. Wednesday, I'm going to visit Dad. Thursday? Don't know what I'm doing on that day, yet.
In the meanwhile. . . Happy First Day of Spring!
