Good Tuesday Morning! March 13, 2007

  1. Good morning!

    I know it's still early but I thought I'd get it started so our friends in different time zones can post.

    Vacation was wonderful. Accidentally ended up in Mexico. I meant to go north but somehow made a wrong turn and ended up going south. You should have seen my face when I saw the sign "border crossing 1mile". Cripes!

    Also, ended up accidentally on the naval base. It was 2am and I was walking the beach. I kept walking and walking and ooops, there's a guy in front of me with a big gun! He was nice though. Said he'd been watching me for awhile and could see that I wasn't paying attention to the signs. I profusely apologized and swore I'd never do it again. But I did it the next night at 3am. Same guy.

    Went whale watching. Saw a whale but not the whale we were searching for. We were searching for the gray whale which is the one that makes those dramatic dives with their tails sticking out of the water. The whale we saw was very small and moved very fast. It was a nice boat ride though. Gorgeous man on board that graduated from usc and works for scripps. He was delectable.

    The only other thing I did was take a Harbor tour that went around Coronado Island and showed us where the Navy SEALS train (got pics of them training), where the USS Mercy is (got pics), learned alot about the ships and the island. The USS Mercy is the white ship. Has 1000 beds, 16 ICU units and when fully staffed at 1700 it becomes the nations 7th largest hospital.......if it was on land. Got some great pics of seals (the fish kind, not the human ones). Mostly though, I layed on the beach with a book and my ipod. Got a great tan! Cried all day Wed when I left. Got on the plane and I'm crying so hard that I have the hiccups. Lady next to me pats my hand and asks "oh honey, did you have to leave your husband?" I was so out of it with crying that I just nodded. It literally felt like my heart was breaking. I fell in love with the people, the city, the weather, etc. I wanted to live there before I went and now I know that's where I MUST live.

    I'll try to post the pics here today.

    Hope you all have a wonderful warm Tuesday!

    Never! I will always be a Colts fan no matter where I end up.

    Thanks for more of an update Beth. My friends two daughters and son went to college in San Diego and have stayed - they love it.

    Here I am at work - we were swamped in the ER. I get to go home at 3:15 a.m.

    See y'all when I wake up from my 4 hours of sleep.

    GOOD MORNING, LITTLE PEEPS!!


    Beth Welcome Home!!
    You were missed!!
    Hope you can get your pics on here soon--looking forward to them.
    Thanks for starting the thread.

    I'm at work!! ANOTHER really busy nite. SO MANY PAIN MEDS!!!!
    Sometimes I wonder why they don't just order a PCA when someone needs so much!!
    Oh, You all need to tell me to quit complaining!!

    TN & SIRI---Welcome home to you both, too---

    I didn't have a chance to post after I read you were back; Sounded like a GOOD time was had!!
    Hope Mama Possum Queen gets her puter up & running quickly!!

    sanctuary--Good Morning to you!! Hope you will have a good day!!

    Steph--I just always am amazed at your hours!! Actually, I would be afraid to go home or come in at your time, living in a city like Chicago!!
    Again, another Plus of small town living!! Hope you have a wonderful & restful sleep.

    I will be off tonite which is really a good thing!! This OLD body gets really tired, really quickly!!
    DH is going out golfing with the guys again today---they may even go outside to golf instead of the indoor golf dome. We have been having gorgeous weather--BUT, I do believe we will PAY!! It's supposed to turn nasty later today!! maybe even some more snow!!!

    Yesterday Clemm spoke of needing to clean the garden for PRIZES left by the POOCH----DH laughed so hard. DH calls what he does to the yard "POOP PATROL"!! He was out there today since the last of our snow melted!! Oh yes!! He had quite a load!!:trout:

    Well, got to run; stuff to do here!!

    You all have a lovely Day!!
    See you later

    Grace,

    I missed you there!!
    Hope your day is going well!!
    I always forget to ask you---How is DH's shoulder??
    Is he completely better?
    My DH's is a wee bit better---so far is deciding to not have the surgery.
    He is back to golfing--just can't hit the ball with as much force & has a certain amt of pain.

    Good Morning!

    I have a dental appointment at 8AM. Just for a cleaning, but one of my crowns is loose. I've had it for about 30 years. Ugh.

    Ouch - I don't mind dental cleanings but sometimes crowns can be uncomfortable. Hope it doesn't hurt Tweety.

    Well, I'm home . . . snacking on cheese. The cat keeps grabbing at my typing hands from under the table . . . why are we both awake?

    Mary - I was a little scared leaving the hospital and walking to my pickup, which is weird because I'm not scared when I go to work at 0245.

    Well, better finish this cheese so I can go to bed.

    See you all in awhile.
