Friday, October 18th, 2013 - Good Morning
5Oct 18, '13 by Ted, BSN, RNGood Morning -
It's 5:42 AM (EST) here.
Just woke up. No coffee in the blood stream yet.
I had plans of waking up my usual 0200 in the morning thing and doing some video editing. Slept right through it! LOL! So, I STILL have this wedding video to edit! LOL! Amy said that today and tomorrow, especially, are "Date Days" so I hope to get most of the editing done before she wakes up. In the meanwhile, our two happy dogs JUST came up to my studio room with wagging tales and are tell me "It's time to go outside! It's time to eat some breakfast! It's time to be loved and adored!" LOL!
Yesterday was a day of getting chores done. Some got done. Some didn't.
Well. . . better get going. Our two canine family members are beginning to get more into hyper-mode. Don't want them to wake up the loving wife! (Yikes!)
AKY. . . . Peace to you my friend.
To everyone. . . Cheers!
4Oct 18, '13 by Sabby_NC, BSN, RNGood Morning Ted and all who straggle in,
Thanks for starting us off Ted, hope you got those four legged kids sorted out before they woke Amy? So right now you should be head down butt up doing that editing right? WAKE UP!! I thought I heard a snore. LOL YOU best be ready for your date days my dear.
AKY been thinking about you so much lately honey, just praying you are doing the best you can and if you need anything please just yell out to us ok? Even if you need a friendly ear to chat to without much response from us just let us know. I am a good listener. Hugs and love sweet lady.
Had an awesome day with D yesterday, got all her competencies out of the way so she can head off and do some visits on her own today. Once we have met and gone over those visits we have a consult to go to so that will be good for her to experience and see what we do.
I will have her go with my other two colleagues to the facilities that they have so she can meet with those staff and familiarize herself there too.
So so so looking forward to the weekend and some fresh air hiking with hubby and the dogs because it will be FRESH but it is the season right?
Praying for all my buddies here and that you all have a most excellent productive and happy Friday.
Much love to you all.

Yesterday went fairly well actually, even got a chance to take a break during the day, which was helpful. Things are looking better; last month when we got new members I ended up getting several dozen and had to rush to call them all. This time I have less than a dozen, so few that I had to ask the supervisor if I had heard her correctly. And I was happy to hear that our temporary supervisor decided to accept the role permanently. So some things are getting better, over the weeks to come we'll see if that continues...
Did the grocery shopping last night, wasn't able to get everything so I'll probably do a little more shopping after work tonight. Going to meet a friend for lunch downtown tomorrow, which should be nice. Also have to see what my dad is doing this weekend.

Last night I could not sleep. My DSS texted me at midnight. When I answered immediately he called to find out what was going on. Just too much reality.
I had to go to school yesterday to take DGD home after she was hit in the head, again. She already had a bad concussion, with nystagmus. I took her home and she slept until I woke her and then immediately back to sleep. He PT had to be cancelled. She will need to be re-evaluated on Tues. The kid in school thought he was being funny. Just a few days ago she was able to protect herself from another hit to the head because she saw it coming. This one was to the back of the head.
All that was after the heater at work was being cleaned. I had to leave but was told we need a chimney sweep.
Work itself was good. I may not be doing nursing but yesterday felt as stress filled as many days in my past. Anyway it wrecked my sleep. Today I have to have a cardiac stress test. I suspect with no sleep and tons of stress I might not do well.
I will get going now and take the dog out. She is still sleeping in the middle of my bed. My being awake did not bother her.
have a good day. I appreciate all the thoughtful responses. They are truly gifts.

Didn't get much sleep here either. Wish I could go back to bed and try to sleep but I've got to get Spidey up for school and I have to work too.
Not much happening here but as the school nurse aky, I'm wondering why is your DGD getting hit in the head again and did the kid who hit her get a "talking to"?
It is Friday, I am off call this weekend, it is Spidey's last flag football games on Saturday, we have a yard to clean up after all the roofing stuff, we have to go to the dump for the regular household garbage . ....life goes on.
Take care of yourselves.
4Oct 18, '13 by aknottedyarnNot sure about all the details of the incident. My ds is ready to home school her. Both parents are quite upset, naturally. They were attempting to get in touch with the principal,and I have not heard response. The problem is that the general school population does not understand about concussions. She has been getting intensive therapy.
4Oct 18, '13 by dianah, ADN Senior ModeratorGot off on time, after a day doing projects and a competency.
Working on set list tonight for Sunday's funeral service (don't know the ppl but the daughter whose mom died has heard our music and called our bass player asking if we would play for the funeral).
Tomorrow we will help with music in three rooms at our home church.
After lunch, get together with another guitarist/singer to finalize songs for the funeral.
Sunday we will arrive at the church (about 45 min away) at 11am, for a 12 noon start.
Always feel honored to play for ppl; the daughter wants a joyful service and we hope to help make it that way!
Boss is away this week and next, on a river boat cruise down the Rhine river.
So, I'm in charge. Or so they say.
So far we have all survived.
It's good to have a weekend.
Ted, get cracking at editing that video!!
aky, good to hear from you. One day at a time.
I know when one grieves, life kinda goes on, and one must do one's duties (taking care of the dog, the garden, taking the garbage out, doing grocery shopping and cooking, getting the car serviced, etc), eventually going back to work. It's a mixed bag, as you well know: good to keep busy, tired and distracted at the same time.
Wishing you healing, my friend.
and good memories.
Worried about your DGD, do not have a good feeling about this (you are the same, I'm sure).
Keep us informed how she's doing and of the plan, please.
Joe, hope the headaches will stay away!
And, re: changes at work: they will ALWAYS happen, and at the most inopportune times!!
You seem to weather them, unpleasant as they initially present.
Steph, hope you sleep well tonight.
Sabby (and everyone), enjoy your weekend, you Energizer Bunny!
I look forward to reading about your doings and goings-on.
Y'all have a good one.

Spidey and I went to the movies to see Gravity. It is rated PG-13 so I checked it out online before and decided it didn't have any sex, very few cuss words and just a scene or two with dead bodies . . the rest was amazing and scary. The effects were so good.
He's been fighting a sore throat for a couple of days and came home shaking and cold. No fever . . yet. But he headed straight for the bathtub and a hot bath. He's sipping hot apple cider now and all medicined-up.
I'm off call this weekend so opened up a bottle of wine.
I too hope I can get some sleep - I took a nap this afternoon though so that might mess me up.
See ya in the morning before we head out to flag football.
