Good Morning -
Sabby_NC - Hope you're feeling better. Coughing up lungs ain't no fun. I'm sure you know the routine, but just in case: drink lots of fluids and get some rest.
Our two canine-family members ain't too happy with the cold weather, too. When they go outside, they do their "duty" then scamper back inside. Usually they'll scamper outside for long periods of time and dig holes or attempt to hunt down little field mice.
aknottedyarn - I didn't know that you follow football. I don't even know who are in the play-offs! LOL! Regarding the weather, it was MINUS 13 DEGREES
outside last night! I haven't seen that low of temp in a long time! Currently, it's minus 7 degrees. Our furnace is working just fine, thankfully. The home is comfortably warm between 68 and 70 degrees. Neither Amy or myself have any travel plans for today. It's "Stay in Our Comfy Home Day" today.
Last night at work I floated down to the ER. It was NOT QUIET! (I'm going to do some serious frowning to anyone who said the word "quiet" yesterday! UGH!) Of course, they put me in the cardiac room of the ER. Thankfully, no one was seriously ill last night. But there was one patient who needed and deserved a fair amount of attention as she seems to be preparing herself to leave an unsafe situation at home. To be painfully honest, such cases are not my strong point. She did not need to be hospitalized, but neither should she go home where she feels unsafe. Needless to say, I made sure that she had safe travel and safe accommodations before she left the ER. She is already seeking necessary support, thank goodness. But she was quite anxious with regards to her home situation. Hopefully she'll follow through with her plans to leave that situation.
Around 12:30 AM, we finally cleared out our entire (teeny-tiny) ER. At that time, there was no patients in our teeny-tiny ICU. So, I was able to go home early on an "On Call" basis. Didn't get called back in, of course. What's nice about coming home early is that I can get a few hours sleep during the rest of the night and not "waste" my time sleeping during my day (night) off. I'm off for the next three nights which is always a happy thing. Amy is off from work as well. Life is good.
No real big plans for today. If/when it warms up outside I will shovel the pathways around our home. Otherwise, I'll be hanging inside. Will probably work on some music and attempt to finish a couple of compositional projects that i started. These projects are going rather slow as usual. We'll see. . .
Hope all who travel here have a safe, warm and pleasant day. Warmest regards to all.
