    We're back from camping. I have the washing machine fired up and I am napping and snuggling the doggo between loads. Weather here remain lovely, 70-80, chance of rain tomorrow night. COVID numbers for our county seem to be steady at 15 new per day, no deaths for 2 weeks, but still missing our target rate by more than double. Sigh. Stay safe and as dry as possible, east coasters. Also hoping Californians are staying cool and away from fires.

    What do you INTENSELY DISLIKE?

    It is downright eerie, but some of the neighbors chose to use their noisy riding lawn-moaners (because when we hear them we moan, "Oh, Nooooo!") JUST EXACTLY when we are brewing our coffee for our afternoon-out-on-the-porch/patio. VRRRRRMMMMM. Hate it! Even worse if it's in stereo, one on the side of our property and one right across the street. It's just too much!

    So maybe tomorrow the closet cleaning-out will be attended to, maybe. Who knows ?Not me! If I procrastinate long enough, I won't have to switch the winter-ish clothes to the other closet in the other room, wherein currently resides my 'summer' clothes. Since summer weather here is so hot and humid, I've only been wearing t-shirts instead of some of the nice blouses I used to wear when doing long-term PDN cases in a home. Those blouses feel too warm here, and have a tendency to kind of, I dunno, 'wilt' as the day goes on. These days I'm more into a wardrobe that is simply clean and comfortable ... function over style. I reckon I am about to turn on the 6 PM local newscast, followed by the network's newscast. Sometimes it's hard to watch, other times it's hard to look away from. But so far as I know (don't tell amoLu) there is another Brave's game on at 7 PM. Maybe they'll win and it will help me momentarily feel better, y'know, by just narrowing my focus on the game, and only the game, so help me gawd.

    stars - I like the Braves, and a few others. It's just that I'm po'd at MLB itself right now. MLB is just too C19 stupid! All for the sake of $$$.

    I so dislike it when some 1 hour TV shows start on the half-hour instead of the hour mark. Soooo annoying! Happens only infreq, but still annoying.

    Much better morning today, as I got to sleep all the way through it, and woke up at 12 noon! Oh what a relief; keeping in mind I turned out my light around 2:30 AM... Every evening I vow to try to turn my light out by 1 AM, however, then I get into whatever I am reading, and when I look up at the clock, time has flown! My body seems to like it, as if I was still working 3-11 shifts: stayed up until 2 AM, got up by 9 or 10-ish, then I had 4+ hours to run errands or go for a 5 or 6 mile walk (in Mass. it was in a Newbury/Newburyport bird-sanctuary ... a beach that's about 7 miles long; in Nashville, one of the Warner Parks or at Radnor Lake). I really did like working 3-11, and hated when the 12 hour shifts became standard. Get up way too early and not get home until after supper. Bleargh! Although I did sometimes work night shifts, it was a rare event to have to suffer through. My mom preferred night-shift 11-7's. Though 'working shifts' is water under the bridge now, my body is back to its personal preferences, and I'm fine with that. You know, we only got a very brief rain shower last night; just enough to make the grass shiny with raindrops but not enough to quench the dry earth. I sat outside for about an hour before I went to bed, watching the clouds swirling around the full moon. There was a large rainbow halo circling the moon, and low clouds moving East to West. It was so, so beautiful, and even entertaining. I wish I could've capture it in a painting. When the clouds blotted out every bit of the moonshine is when I decided to call it a night. amoLu, you must've put a hex on the baseball game because the Braves lost! Ooooh WELL! I sincerely hope you don't get stuck in your electric-powered recliner; it happened to a patient of mine once and it was hell on her until we got power back. No way could we haul her out of the chair so she could get back in her bed. What a time! Tweety and Joe, hope your work continues on in the 'not horrible' way you said it is going today. (Notice I did NOT say "Q"!) BCg, Hang onto your hat!

    G'day So far not having a horrible day. ER us busy and waiting on our discharges. They were able to float us a nurse so ratios are okay. Covid rate yesterday back up to 8%. Still less than 10,000 new cases but almost 250 deaths which is a big jump. Was hoping for a little good news.

    Listening to activists.

    Obama the Activist The only thing Trump knows about Lewis is that Lewis didn't attend his inauguration or SOTU...
  11. Wrong date, my apologies. Surely you haven't forgotten the demand to hold all judicial nominations the last year of a presidency.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Have you all seen coverage of Trump's latest moronic remarks on Covid deaths? From CNN to CBS, the words all Americans long to hear: 'It is what is.' Yep. The words of a moron, with no plan, who circling the drain in election polls, yet can't seem to figure out why.
  14. Which demand you're referring to?

    Yep. Those violent cops might get fired and then they lose their licence and find another line of work because they can no longer carry weapons or get hired in law enforcement without hours and hours of remediation...am I right?

    Morning Was a fairly quiet day at work Monday, but also productive. Which was nice as Mondays can be bad After work exercised and ran and errand or two. Have drifted off my diet the last few days, have to get back on Was glad to finally get outreach from our local branch of ANA, would like to be more involved. Have also joined a get out the vote effort, sending postcards to voters reminding them what day to vote Sleep was a little off last night. Was kinda anxious at bed time Will be in the mid 70s today, but will get warmer as the week goes on

    Its respondeat superior. There is a standard and policies that are usually adhered to in regards to discipline or termination. Parties can file a lawsuit without any such standard. And, police officers aren't immune from being fired either.

    Breonna Taylor

    And the nurses may well be fired. The hospital's position as superior responder doesn't shield the individual nurse, therapist or other health professional in their employment from legal peril.

    amoLu, Oy-yi-yi!!! I see your point very clearly, but at the present moment I must confess I am enjoying the game anyway. (sorry!) The thing that grinds MY gears is that some places are going to be going back to school, as in bricks-and-mortar school. Poor little guinea-pig kids. The line from Blowin' In The Wind comes to my mind, "How many deaths will it take 'til he knows that too many people have died?"

    First time I ever saw 'Magnif Obs' was in high school assembly movie Friday. Silly line I still laugh over. Comment = 'headache'. Response = 'where does it hurt?' Today, I know why the location question, but at the time, I just thought it silly; still cracks me up!! And you're right. Not a great movie with RH & JW. Surprising I've pretty much whittled down my refrig/pantry stuff. But ever so often, I find something. Like a box of Shake & Bake from 2014 that week. I don't know, but I have NO interest WHATSOEVER to watch MLB games. I missed them when they were 'off the air'. But I don't support the PREMATUREstart-up of any of major league sports. I think too many folk are at risk - and the ones to be hit the hardest will be the 'average guy'. NOT the high-paid athletes whose bank accounts should be able to support them. I also have issue with the fact the 'privileged' athletes have such easy access to C19 testing, while critical needs for front line HC workers, NH residents & other 'vulnerables' have to sit for hours in car lines and WAIT ... THIS reeeeealllly grinds my gears!

    The rain was nice enough to stop from the time I left the house, shopped for groceries, and unloaded them from the car. I was quite appreciative. We've had our 4 o'clock coffee out on the front porch. When I came inside hubby was on the phone and he is still talking ... don't think it's the same person, as I believe he's made or received several calls. People think women talk a lot on the phone, so I guess maybe he's 'one of the girls' in that respect. You remember that book 'Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus'? Well I think I looked at excerpts of it in various places, and they had----or WE have----it backwards. Because, I match many more of the Mars qualities than I do the Venus characteristics. Hubby has a lot of the Venus traits. Just kinda funny, I think. Ball game is on in two hours, if the rain from Isaia (sp?) isn't falling in Atlanta GA! Hope it's not, anyway. Guess since we got groceries today, it'll be a pizza for supper, oh, and bone-out chicken wings, one order 'naked', one order BBQ. Wonder if I'll get the closet cleaned out tomorrow? All please be well!

    I'm just not motivated to attend on line meetings so don't. If they recommend signing a petition, calling local or statewide politicians I usually do that. One of the men who lived in a camper and showered at the gym went to live in his son's driveway. He is in an Arizona hospital with COVID-19, but not in ICU. Prayers for all of us in these times. Husband has a banana every morning. With dinner he has mashed sweet potatoes and coleslaw from the store. Even if we have cabbage he wants a little coleslaw.

    G'day. Stars I might have given him one chance to get up but not five. Better news on the covid front. Less cases and left deaths the last couple of days. We'll see if it's a trend. Positivity rate fir my county was less than the coveted 5% yesterday but it's the two week average that's important. Apparently, 1 in 42 of Floridians tested positive. I overheard two people in yoga yesterday talking if their experiences getting it. I'm coming across more and more people that have had it.

    Harumph! The last thing hubby said to me last night was "Be sure I get up when you wake up to take the dog out." So I did. FIVE TIMESI tried to make sure. Because I am conscientious, when I got back in my bed, I listened to make sure he was getting up. Each time I told him to get up, he flipped the covers back like he was about to get up. I wanted to go back to sleep myself, because I was still (and am still) feeling very sleepy. The fourth time I none too gently put the alarm clock set to go off, at the end of his dresser so he would have to get up and turn it off. And he did, but he went right back to bed. By that time I was so disgusted, and could not go back to sleep myself because I felt so irked. I got up, got dressed, went out to get the paper, made my coffee and went out on the back patio. I did not make sure any doors shut quietly. Finally, about 15-20 minutes later he did get up. NEXT TIME he will have the alarm clock and be responsible for getting himself up. I just HATE waking people up; I had to do it for my best friend at nursing school and she would never get up, either. I'd say "Put one foot on the floor!" and she would....but next time I went back to check on her, she still had not gotten out of bed. Only when I threatened to open her curtains did I get a response from her, "DON'T YOU DARE!" / "Okay, but if I have to come in here again, they are going to be opened regardless!" Anyway, I lost an hour of sleep this morning while trying to "make sure" hubby got up, and it ain't happenin' again. Grumblegrumble. So, anyway, it started raining right after I got through doing the puzzles in the paper. It got windy and I could hear the raindrops heading this way and got inside just in time. The newspaper forecast says it all: "Rain from Isaias". Hubby went out to the bank to transfer some $$$ into our checking account because we still have 3 & 1/3 weeks until our first SS check arrives. The stupid bank is STILL stupidly sending payments to the insurance companies which are supposed to do an automatic payment withdrawal themselves. I thought last week (or whenever it was the last time I was over there) it had gotten straightened out, but nooooooo. When they do that it will put me in overdraft and costs me something like a $35 fee. I am not happy about this AT ALL! I am going to attempt to straighten it out myself, IF I can do it on line; that woman at the bank doesn't seem to 'get it' even though she has supposedly "taken care of it". Yuh. right. But other than that....it's a day and I am breathing (sometimes with a little fire coming out!). Perhaps I can actually get Part III of my room/closet cleaning taken care of? Maybe yes, maybe no. Hubby offered to get the few groceries we need, but I said no, I'd rather do it myself. Even with a list, he manages to leave some things out that are, to me, if not crucial, at least important. And a BIG ALSO, he has to get those forms for DSS filled out, which involves me, as his hand shakes when he writes, and he has some dyslexic problems so I have to read things out loud to him. I guess my closet is going to end up staying as is, for now. It's always something. Crab, crab, crab. I will try to improve my mood, and maybe come back later. Ciao!
