Wednesday Oct. 4, 2006; Good Morning!

  1. My only plans for tomorrow are attending school, typing an English 101 essay at home, and deep-cleaning my bathrooms. I'd really love it if everyone else divulged their Wednesday plans, whether commonplace or unique.

    Take care! I'll check back in later this morning.

    Hi Commuter! It's almost my bedtime but I'll give a hearty "Good Morning!" to you and all who follow.

    Day's plans?? Work, then home to the 'puter (and allnurses ) and fixing dinner and piddley household chores and . . and . . and . . . guess that's it! It's an "early" day for us, as oldest has choir at 7:15 a.m. I'm back in the Cath Lab at work, after being in the "Stress Lab" (Treadmill Lab, Noninvasive Lab, etc.) for two months. This ol' brain got stretched!!

    I think I've relayed my stories of making watches go fast, stopping a clock when I looked at it (really!) and my turning streetlights off when I drive by them (really!). Well, Tuesday at work we readied the "new" lab (newly installed, only been in use for a week) for a cath pt, and got started . . and the Image Intensifier (the fluoro tube above the pt) stopped responding to the raise-and-lower control, and then, after we rebooted the room, the whole C-arm (that the II is mounted on) wouldn't move. Well, we can't do the case if the C-arm won't move, so we packed the pt up and moved back into the "old" lab (which is really only 3 1/2 yr old). Luckily the Biomed worker, who trained in Wisconsin specially for our room, was in the room at the time (it was his suggestion to reboot the room), and he called in the repair crew. Turns out a "board" went out, and if it's not available locally, they'll have to ship one in from France. I offered to go get it for them, --- it would only take about a week or so --- but their way, it'll only take two days, so I guess they'll go with that. Hey, I only wanted to be helpful, OK??

    So, yeah, I strike again. Let's not have a repeat of that today (Wed)!

    I hope everyone has a good day, gets some good news, hears something or has something happen that lifts the spirits. --- D

    Tomorrow I plan to scratch my dandruff, wash my hair in a warm shower, and do tonights dishes that are in the sink.

    Later in the morning I'm going to go sing and play with kids at a preschool. In the afternoon I'm going to the rehab hospital to deliver used (and some new) books, DVDs, and video games patients have requested.
    On the way home I'll drive through a fast food place (not a chain) and get a vegi burger for me and pastrami sandwich and onion rings for DH.
    Then read while he watches TV.

    Edited to clarify that it is 11:04 pm here so I said "tomorrow"

    Oh, yeah. You're on the West Coast where Pacific Standard Time dominates, so it's still Tuesday night in California (technically).

    G'day all!
    It's late afternoon wednesday here in Oz. Spent the day resting as I've been feeling a tad "off" today. Mostly hayfever and travel weariness I think. Let's face it, I HAVE done some travelling this year!
    I've managed to upload some pics of the wedding we attended in Melbourne on the weekend. Go and check out the gallery!
    Hope everyone enjoys their wednesday!
    Take care and keep safe.
    Cheers.........

    Hi Otherworldly Commuter :
    You can tell I slept all day. Just may start the dishes and shower soon.
    Then read until sleeping again.
    Ten o'clock in the morning I plan to have four year olds singing "The old Lady that Swallowed a Fly"

    GOOD MORNING, MY DEAR PEEPS!!

    Well, I'm at work right now & have been since 2300. It;s been super busy with all t his new paperwork t hey they have given us.
    It's 0400 & I'm just now taking a couple minutes for myself!!

    When I get work at 0730, well, DH has Physical Therapy, so we;ll drive right over there. Then, I'll be sitting in the car, reading the newspaper & listening to my IPOD while he has therapy. After that, we'll probably go straight home. If I'm feeling wide awake, I may do some shopping!
    Then, I'll ride the stationary bike & do my other exercises; after that it's a nice long shower!!! HEAVEN!!! After that, I'll play in the computer & listen to music, watch some TV and hopefully finish a book I'm reading. somewhere in there we'll have some luch. DH has that all ready planned--polish sausage sandwich on hard roll, potato salad and fresh corn on t he cob.

    I'll try to get to bed by 3:30PM as I have to work again at 2300.

    that's my day!! Not very interesting--actually rather boring!!

    Gracie, I plan to check out the pics as soon as I finish here!!
    Someday, I'll learn how to do that & you all can see some of our piccys!!

    You all have a Wonderful day----Pt's calling!!

    Oh Gracie,

    I just viewed your piccys!! They are BEAUTIFUL!!

    What a gorgeous family!! You all look great!!

    It must have just been so lovely!!

    I was wondering how close an Australian wedding would resemble ours here in the Chicago area. It is just about exactly the same!!
    Silly ME!!

    What a beautiful family you have!!
