Good Morning! ūüôā

Amy and I had a nice and relaxing day, yesterday. We had a "Dinner and Movie" date together. The food was yummy, and the movie was very cool. We saw the new Star Wars movie. It was produced by JJ Abrahams. It seems that he likes to produce movies about space! L O L! (He also produced the newer Star Trek movies!)

Tonight starts the 1st of four 12-hour shifts in a row for work. (Ugh!) So, it'll be the usual "Eat, Sleep and Work" thing for the next four days (except for Sunday, when church and choir activities will be added to the day). 

Hope all have a pleasant day today. ūüôā

Ted

Morning

Pretty good day at work

Got my hair cut afterwards 

J is still sick,think he has some variant of the flu, so I doubt we're going out tonight

Weather yesterday and today unusually warm, although rain, then freezing rain, then snow to arrive between now and Sunday 

Hoping for minimal ice.  At least we won't have the severe weather expected for the Gulf Coast

Did you report the thread?  It comes to their attention quicker if you do that.  I think.

I hit something that erased my post.

So I will say hope that those are sick get well, hope that those are working have a good day.  Hope Nannie behaves, and hope the retired and off people have a good day as well.

Hi. Woke up to melting snow and a bit of rain. Supposed to be windy and rainy through the weekend, then turn cold (20s) next week. 

My doggone knee abrasion still isn't healed, but the place where I have been putting tape is inflamed and itchy, and driving me a little nuts. I feel like I need to keep it covered because it is painful to touch. And it's just a little too cold to go bare legged. But if that's the worst thing I have to endure, then my life is pretty good. Dh was awake all night last night, jazzed up on prednisone. He looked pretty rough. 2 more days and then he can taper. The facial droop looks the same to me, but he insists its better. 

Has anyone been watching the Jeopardy champions? It has been facing off 3 of the best, and its pretty fun and challenging. 

Not much going on at work.  I am walking over to see the counselor on my lunch. I am not sure if these visits are helping at all, but I am making the effort at least. I forgot the crazy one and I traded some days next week, and I made some appointments on days I have agreed to work. Bah, I hate it when I do that. And I couldn't find my keys this morning. I feel more forgetful that usual, which is frustrating. I think I just need a really good night's sleep, sigh. 

Stay warm and dry, ya'll.

Ho-hum.

I have been regaled by Nannie for the last HOUR about how she was raised in an orphanage and a jealous teacher whipped her to within an inch of her life, for singing ... and singing better than the teacher ... so, she was whipped with a belt until the blood was running down her legs. This is just one (untrue) segment of the monolog 'conversation'. OY! I won't drawl on and on about the rest of it; too boring for words! Fortunately, Mother Nature called her to the bathroom before I passed out from her recitation of the myriad of 'Tales That Never Happened.' 

Waiting for hubby to do his errands (deer food and birdseed and suet cakes, and cigars!) because the last stop will be take-out lunch from our favorite family restaurant.

Please, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, hurry back, hubby! Save me from these endless imaginings:

Now I am hearing how going to the bathroom just now gave Nannie cramps in her feet, and the appointment she drove to last week, just before she and her husband got married, to see the "Miracle Man" for foot massages well, it only helped for a little while, but the man told her to stop using her crutches, so she was off 'walking materials' by the time she was five years. Also during this episode, she pointed out the photo her great-grand-daughter, who she said was her Aunt _______'s little girl, and her (Nannie's) cousin. "She's hungry, too, so I wish my Daddy would get back with that food!"

See what I mean?

You all are very welcome.

Yes, I merged the topics and didn't comment.

I apologize. Got busy ... the dryer bell rang at the same time the front doorbell rang, and I was on the floor and couldn't get up fast enough to open the garage door to tell the dude to leave the package in the garage during this TORRENTIAL rainstorm.

(enough excuses ? ....... ūüėā!)

Hope you all have a safe and happy day.

Good day Ted, Joe, Tweety, nursej22, No Stars, and everyone who follows!

Yesterday I began to mow the back yard. I did get all the pig weed before a light sprinkle started. Just some tallish grass didn't get mowed. The sun cme out later, but the grass was too wet to mow.

Hi sirI! I see you just replied. Hope the weather improves.

Oh my Lord, Nannie went way off the chain this afternoon. She supposedly couldn't open her eyes and she said she was blind. She sat there with her eyes closed and would not open them: "I CAN'T!" Then,  since she was mad (we 'wouldn't' take her to 'the dance' and/or 'the meeting' ... neither of which are occurring tonight.)  she began REALLY preaching at us about how bad we were, on and on. Hubby got on the phone to the Dr's office and the nurse got to hear her carrying on ... Nannie was not aware of the call, so kept on hollering and cussing, saying we were "going to meet your maker and I'M going to tell Him EVERYTHING, so he will punish you just like you deserve and then you'll go to Hell and be with the Devil for the rest of your lives!" (Nurse said to hubby that it sounded like we were already there!)

Nannie kept trying to go up the stairs, but hubby blocked her, and she beat him on the chest, telling him to go ahead and call the police, demanding to go upstairs so she could go out front and scream to 'all those people ' (no one was out there) and tell them what was going on, so someone who cared would come and save her. This was all still with her eyes shut! 

The nurse talked w/ the doc so there was a prescription called in to up the dose of her med to one in the AM and two in the PM. Since it is already a med she has, there were enough to start the increased dose tonight. Still, it took her 55 minutes to finally run down, and ONLY THEN did she open her eyes. I don't know how hubby got her to take her meds, because she said she wasn't going to eat "any of that damn poison you want to make me take."

Ain't life AMAZING? The funniest part, and yes there was one, at a certain point in the middle of all this to-do, we both went and sat outside the back door and watched her preaching Hellfire and emphatically carrying on to no one,  for 10-12 minutes, apparently thinking at least one of us was in the room with her.

I wish she would have allowed me to check her pulse and BP,  it'd be interesting to see where the numbers were!

Now she is in bed; we are hoping she sleeps soundly for the rest of the night.

AMEN.
