    Good morning Allnurses! Sunday June 29,2008

    Well it is late on Sunday for me but I haven't posted in the daily logs for a while but I am sitting her at my house, it is 99 degrees at 6:30pm and it looks like we are going to have a thunderstorm here soon. I am cooking me a little dinner, baked asparagus and a tilapia filet and I am going to make some of that instant Hollendaise sauce here in a few minutes to go with dinner. I babysat my 3 year old grand niece last night while my niece and her husband went out to dinner for thier anniversary. I bought dinner and I only ate two of the pieces of pizza and the rest they are probably having for dinner tonight if it even lasted that long. Anyway, Mollie (my grand niece) had a late nap yesterday so she wouldn't go to sleep. I tried and tried but she wouldn't go to bed. She didn't get cranky or anything so I just kept watching movies and answering her hundreds of questions. Finally at 1am my niece and her husband came home and I got to go home. She called this morning to tell me thank you but nothing about paying me for dinner or anything. I have been working doing the clinic at work. I am working 10 hour shifts with Friday, Saturday and Sunday off and it makes for some really nice days off. It has only taken me 19 years to get where I can have the days off that I want and I only have 3 more years to work. I have to get ready for work again tomorrow so I better get off my butt, check my laundry and get my sauce ready for dinner....hope to get in here more often to let you know what is up with my life....

    Forgotten foods

    Jen they still sell Jiffy Pop and it is fun to make sometimes...I have a new contraption that I use when there is more than just me at home. It is called a whirly Pop and it makes the best popcorn but it is enough for four people not just one... The things that I miss is my mothers Red Velvet Cake and my aunts peach cobbler...she had a recipe where you put the topping on the bottom of the pan and it bubbled up onto the top of the cobbler it was soooooooo good.

    Summer Vacation? share your plans here!

    Well like everyone else I am not going a lot of places this summer because of the gas prices. I am doing some VFW things and going to two conventions, one is local and the other is in Florida in August for goodness sake. I hope to go to the Oregon coast for the 4th of July holiday with an old friend of mine and just relax for that weekend. But we haven't totally made plans for that yet. I am going to have some surgery in August hopefully and that is at the end of my vacation. I do have a conference in Chicago in October and I am going to see my nephew there. I have never been to Chicago and I can't wait to go there. That is my plans for the summer and fall LOL Sonya

    The Thrill Is Gone

    I am so glad that you put in your resignation. You have to do what is right for you, I know that you feel badly for the residents and staff that are left there but you need to do what you need to do for yourself. I think that you will do a good job at the position that you are applying for. I would love to survey correctional facilities after I retire for some organization but I am also thinking about totally getting out of nursing and maybe start a doggy day care or dog babysitting service so that people don't have worry about their pets while they are at work like I do all the time. Anyway, good luck and I will keep you in my prayers for the job that you want. Sonya

    Friday May 30, 2008

    Well it is early Saturday morning now but just wanted to let you know what a great day that I had today. I was my day off and the first thing that I did was pay some bills....man I love pay day. Then I took my car and got the oil changed and the tires rotated but I had one tire that was getting bald so I had to buy a new one. Then I stopped and talked to my brother and had lunch with him and my SIL. Then I went and did some grocery shopping for me and my kids...had to get some dental treats for Maggie and Maxie...their breath was smelling something bad...LOL:chuckle:chuckle Then I came home and ate alittle for dinner and now I need to get ready and go to bed, got another big day tomorrow, more shopping. I have to go buy some shoes, dog food and get my formal for a VFW thing that is going on later this month. Will write again tomorrow or today which ever you want to consider it LOL. Sonya

    The Thrill Is Gone

    Marla, When something happens, you know who they will blame?? It will be you like they already have and it will get worse. Even at 50 you are very marketable. There is hospice and home health and have you ever thought about corrections??? That is another part of nursing that has a lot of autonomy and you don't have young children and no enemas!!! There are many positions in the Department of Corrections in Oregon because they keep building more prisons and with the nursing shortage, its hard to keep nurses....But anyway, get out of the position that you are in and go start looking for a new job before you get in trouble with the old job.

    Good Morning, Memorial Day May 26,2008

    Good Memorial Day to all. I am an Oregon Department line officer for the Ladies VFW Auxiliary and I was supposed to be at Willamete National Cemetary today for a ceremony but will all the running around I have been doing for the VFW and the union and work I have been exhausted and Sunday morning I woke up at 3AM with all the symptoms of an intestinal bug. I would have had to drive 3 hours to get to where I was going and I didn't think that I could make it so I called the other girls and told them that I was out of commission. I got a phone call this afternoon that everything went okay and they just all wanted me to get well. So I have had a quiet day lying on the couch, drinking lots of fluids and taking time to get myself ready to go back to work tomorrow. I went to the cemetary where my mother and father (a WWII veteran) are buried and put flowers on their grave on Friday. My mother was a VFW auxiliary member also and the group put auxiliary flags on the ladies grave for memorial day along with the american flags for the men. Our local post has started an aisle of flags in our cemetary and I gave them the flag off my fathers casket. They are all on flag poles and the cemetary is sooo beautiful when you drive through there with all the flags there. It is so wonderful to realize how much people take for granted when so many people have sacrificed their lives for our country. I pray for the people that are overseas fighting for our country and I hope that someday we will have peace and everyone can come home from the wars. Anyway, I have been gone for a while and I hope that I can keep up and come in more often from now on. Things should slow down for me for a while and hope to catch up with what has been going on around here. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers if things are in strife in your life. Glad to be back Sonya

    My boys will be reunited at Rainbow Bridge tomorrow

    It is very hard to lose a furkid, I haven't had to experience for a while since I have been without pets until two years ago again, but I do remember the loss years ago when we had to put down a faithful friend. I am truely sorry for you Tazz, but your kitty will be better off at his passing and he will be without pain again. It is a good idea when you are ready to get another kid since they so fill your life with joy and happiness. My heart goes out to you and glad that the passing was peaceful. Huggs to you and your family. Sonya, Max & Maggie

    Semper Fi

    I know a man that spent 20 years in the Navy and still didn't know how to swim...I thought that was pretty amazing but he was in the navy about 30 years ago. I know my father knew how to swim and so does my brother...LOL Even in the VFW there is a little joking between the services, each one thinks that the branch that they were in was better than the other. Its fun to watch them....the others call the Marines Jarheads. LOL Sonya
