Good morning!

Joe, stay warm!

J22, sure are a lot of hoops to jump through to get the MRI.  But what can you do but play the game.

Dianah, hope you continue to improve.  Sounds crazy that you have so much to do with retirement.  Here I think you just put in your two weeks notice and goodbye.  LOL.  But we don't have a pension.  Can't believe it's so close.

Stars, hope you get your injection or whatever treatment soon.  

They say we're about to have our coldest days in four years.  The delicate citrus and strawberry crops is what makes it big news around here.  Shouldn't be freezing here, but north and inland it will.

Wy coworker texted me and asked how the day went and wants to know what she's walking in to tomorrow.  Just her and I and 12 patients.  I told her that she could be in charge.  She seems to manage it better.  and she'll be in charge the weekend.  I wasn't in charge yesterday.  

I got written up over not charting the oxycodone I gave and didn't chart.  "Not a write up officially, but just that we had a chat about it and that I will monitor you for two weeks (wink...I won't be doing that). They are looking for people that divert.  They didn't drug test me so that can't too suspicious I would think.  I offered to be drug screened.  I signed a paper that we've had the chat.  Sounds like a write up to me.  I don't care.  Haven't been written up before so I feel a sense of shame.  But I made a mistake, I own it.  The boss said "the root cause is you it was 2:45 and you hadn't had lunch yet......"  Truth.   How many other jobs make you work 6:45 to past 3pm and work on your feet nonstop without a single break?

Tweety given the nonstop work I wouldn't worry about the write up, gonna happen sooner or later. Hospitals always seemed very punitive places to  work

NJ22 glad you're done with the PT and can schedule the MRI

Dianah glad the dyspepsia is easing up

Stars here's hoping there isn't much snow for you the next few days

It's snowing again this morning, will get at least a few inches.  Hopefully it should be over by noon

Work was fine yesterday, despite some brief technical difficulties.  Things are getting back to normal after last week's technical difficulties.  Finally going to be reimubursed for the application fee for the MA license, hoping that goes through soon

Stayed in last night and exercised, given the predicted snow

J managed to get his MRI, the podiatrist said the toe has a touch of osteomylitis but is healing so he should stay on the antibiotics and  follow up with an orthopod.  The  doc did discuss the worst case scenario of a reversal with increasing infection and possible amputation.  I advised J this seemed very unlikely but hopefully it will cause  him to take this sort of thing more seriously in the future

Should be a normal day at work, and as long as the snow eases up soon enough I should be able to meet J for dinner.  Though he is limited in what footwear he can wear and with all of the snow that might make getting around difficult for him tonight

Up into the 20s today but colder tonight

Good Afternoon~

Gray and cold, but not as cold, due to lack of wind at the present moment. The weather report has quite literally change 3x in the past 6 hours! We're not going to get anything, we are going to get a little bit of both rain and snow, we might get mostly snow, we will 'get a dusting' or 1-3".....whatever happens it is supposed to be occurring between 9 (or 11, or midnight,) and end early in the morning (3 AM-ish). It will be somewhere between 37 and 44 degrees. 

Nannie is flummoxed by the varying predictions. Gosh, all she does is sit in her recliner and look out the window (and nap, and eat, and watch TV; that chair is "Nannie Central"!!!) ... so if she isn't going  out, doesn't have to be anywhere, and the same for hubby and I....why worry what will occur? Or which forecast is correct? Just lean back (well, that's a given!) and watch the show roll by out there. It will probably be quite boring weather until well after dark, anyway.

? I don't feel terribly excited about  ? "The Move",  ? but we've gotten through other things over the years ?, so: Ooohhhhhhh Well! ?

May stop by again later....

Another sunny, albeit, cool day. I'll take it! I did a short (6 mile) bike ride. I would have gone further, but my fingers were getting numb from the cold. I have some errands to run, now that I've finished lunch, and I am picking up the grandsons after school. Their mom is in Portland this weekend, for a little R&R, and their dad is helping a friend with plumbing issues. So they are going to have a sleepover here. ? . 

Tweety, if it wasn't in the "write up", I would add a note about how you hadn't had a break, and maybe describe your work assignment. That is a dumb process. But probably better than just counting the narcs drawer at the beginning and end of every shift. 

Joe, J's toe issue sounds like my grandkids. With our snowy weather, adequate footwear has been challenging. I hope your snow is manageable and not too icy. Eldest ds lived near Indianapolis for a couple of years and he said the ice was the worst thing about winter there .

Dianah, I think my pension will be the stickiest part of retiring. When I have left other employers my retirement was in a 403b or 401k and pretty easy to transfer. I suppose government, whether state or federal, has lots of extra requirements, likely to keep people on the up and up. I have been advised to use a broker for Medicare, when that becomes necessary. 

Stars, the weather forecast is sort of like reading tea leaves. Our changes frequently, so I depend on sticking my head outside. South wind: going to rain, north wind, going to freeze. Cap (lenticular cloud)  on the mountain , or rainbow around the sun or moon, it's going to rain. Oh heck, what am I saying, it's always going to rain here, eventually.
