Happy Sunday to you all.
Woke up running this morning and I am not sure why LOL Have just sat down from scrubbing the oven and microwave. Made hubby some stuffed pork chop meals and some of the gravy/ soup dripped on to the oven floor.
Froze 12 meals for hubby yesterday so the freezer is stacked full of soups, pot roast, stuffed pork chops, spaghetti bake, Italian sausage and chicken mornay. I believe that will last him for a while. hahahahahaha
Going to go shower shortly and get the ironing out of the way before I settle down to write some letters to folks back home. I enjoy getting their emails but I do not want the art of letter writing to die out. I so love getting letters in the 'real' mail.
Took the boys for a walk yesterday and it was down right miserable. The air was so cold my lungs were hurting when we got back home but the puppies were happy and that is all that really matters BUT I will be hard pushed to repeat that exercise today. LOL
Netters is copping more snow today so I pray she is safe when driving out in this and that she got her DD settled in to her new apt.
So what are you all doing today?
My plans this afternoon include a wee nap and I may even play a game on the computer.
Much love I send to you all.
5Feb 3, '13 by aknottedyarnGood morning Sabby. Good day all.
Today is Super Bowl. We will eat all the sports food today. Hot dogs, chicken wings, beef on a stick. i plan to make it a fun game.
Of course that is after many other things get done. I still have one load to fold and more hoeing out to do.
It's cold here, too. We got another dusting of snow last night.
Well, onward and upward. The dog needs to go out.
Go Ravens. I have to cheer for the Ravens. Joe Flacco is a University of Delaware grad. Besides my SO is a real fan. May be wearing his hat and tie for the game, who knows.
5Feb 3, '13 by TheCommuter, ASN, RN Senior ModeratorGood morning!
I am posting from work and will get off within the next few minutes. The oncoming nurse arrived late due to a family emergency, so I have to finish giving report to her. I plan to go home, sleep, and return to work this evening for another shift.
I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that no one calls off tonight. It is Super Bowl Sunday and people generally do not want to be at work when they'd rather watch the game, drink beer, eat finger foods, and socialize with friends and family.
Have a splendid Sunday!

Uneventful day yesterday, did a little bit of shopping and visited with my dad. Took it easy the rest of the day. Was cold with periodic snow and winds.
Today planning to go to church, also attend a congregational meeting. Don't like congregational meetings, but I figure it's the last one I'll attend here. Going to do some cooking for next week as well.
Had sleep problems again, melatonin helped but I still woke up a couple times early in the morning. Not sure why, will be very careful about caffeine today and see if that helps
4Feb 3, '13 by Spidey's mom, ADN, BSN, RN GuideGood morning all - a hospice call awakened me at 0600 but nothing that needed responding to until later in the day.
So, I'm up and made coffee and here I am!
Super Bowl Sunday - well, not sure what we'll do as dh leaves for a conference before the game starts. Might go out to the ranch and watch with in-laws. I have never really understood chicken wings . . . . pretty expensive and not much meat.
Sabby - you shame me every time I read of your industrious nature.
Joe - I woke up a couple of times even after Benadryl but it was hot flashes . . . .
5Feb 3, '13 by BCgradnurse, MSN, RN, NP GuideGood morning!
Sabby-please send some of that energy my way! There's a big sloth sitting on my shoulders and I don't want to do anything...lol.
Joe, hope you have a good day and better sleep tonight. Commuter-hope your shift is uneventful tonight. AKY-hate to say it, but I can't bring myself to root for the Ravens. I guess have sore loser-itis.
It's been a good weekend so far. Friday night I went to the paint class/bar and now have another so-called masterpiece to hang. I'm not artistic by anyone's standards, but it is so much fun. Last night I went to my sister's to celebrate my nephew's 7th birthday. Two wonderful things happened. First-her older son (9) is autistic and while he is very verbal and extremely smart, he does not like to be touched. Last night he snuggled on the couch with me for 45 minutes. He hasn't done that since he was a toddler. I had tears in my time the entire time. His parents, therapists, and teachers have done a fantastic job. Second thing-I was able to eat an entire piece of pizza! It's the first "real food" I've had since my surgery 7 weeks ago. Granted, it took about 30 minutes to get it down, but it was so good to have something other than soup. It's the little things.....next stop....cheeseburger!
Wishing everyone a wonderful end to the weekend.
3Feb 3, '13 by NF_eyenurse, BSN GuideHi everyone.
It was a lovely and relaxing (yet productive) Sunday. Hubby and I just finished up his birthday pie (couldn't let it go to waste, could we? ). Now my hubby is plucking on his ukulele and we are watching tv, and digesting. Some tea sounds nice but too lazy to get up, will settle on the glass of water I already have.
We do not follow football (sorry, AKY) and I wouldn't even know it was Super Bowl Sunday except that someone mentioned it at work on Friday. Hubby worked on our little backyard, fixing leaking sprinkler pipes and planting some plants and palms. I caught up on some laundry and did some more organizing of closets, drawers, etc.
It was a beautiful sunny day. We planned to go for a bike ride after church but a nap and a visit to the library happened instead. My son is an avid reader, like me. I think we found a new author/series for him to read. I also worked on my bible study homework. I joined a women's bible study group that meets Tuesday evenings. I should be doing my study right now. But I had to come by and say "hi".
At church we saw a friend who lost his wife three months ago. I mentioned it here a while ago. A lady at church had open heart surgery and passed away suddenly eight days after surgery (?threw a clot). I think they were married 30 years. It was touching to talk with this dear soul. He is such a sweet, soft spoken person. He said he misses her every day. It broke my heart to see him sad and trying to survive without his best friend. But he is surrounded by loving, grown children, who I am sure are hurting too, but they have each other, and a church congregation of friends. If anyone would like to pray for him it would be appreciated.
He told me he has a copy of the autopsy report and when he is up to it, he wants to get together and read it together. He doesn't understand everything it says. I told him I would be honored to help him in anyway I can. It was bitter sweet talking with our friend today but I hope our little talk (mainly listening to him) was supportive for him. It makes me think how we need to treasure those we love and remember to tell them daily we love them.
