You are reading page 3 of Saturday, August 26, 2006. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Hi everyone! Finally got on line today. It's been so uneventful today. The weather is gloomy, cool, rainy/drizzly...one of those days when you want a big pot of soup. And it's still August! I've been reading; finished the book about Charles Cullen, the killer nurse in NJ/PA. Scary stuff, you know? And I've been studying a bit as well.

I heard from some of my former schoolmates earlier this week; we got together for lunch. It was lots of fun seeing them again; they're starting year 2!

I'm feeling some residual effects from the chemo; my fingers and toes are quite numb. My oncologist said this would likely happen, but I'd expected it to pass by now! I'll call him on Monday. It's a nuisance, really. Last night at supper I kept dropping the utensils.

Other than that, not much has happened. It's so good to see all of you, and Renee!!! I haven't spoken to Renee in literally months.

Jnette, that cat (and the fountain!) is absolutely beautiful!!!

You all take care, and be well. I'll be around!

Peace and love!

Don

Hey, Don. Good to see you, too.

You should be down this way - it's definitely NOT cool here. Muggy and H-O-T. I hate it. Wish you could blow some of that cool air down here.

Let us know what your doc says after you call Monday. ((((HUGS)))) to ya, kiddo.

rninme, send it on, hon.

Chili? Sounds good. I'm hungry - skipped lunch and paying for it now. Think we will have spaghetti tonight. Dh makes THE best sauce - to die for.

Have a good night tonight, rninme.

Hey there, Don ! :)

Thanx for the pets... for Charlie and the fountain! :chuckle

That Charlie Tuna is a character, alright. He's alseep on my ironing board right now. Might as well be... I sure never use it. :rotfl:

I do hope you get a good report on Monday... does this happen to ALL chemo pts.? I hate it for you, truly. Here's hoping for a turnaround. :kiss

Hi Siri ! Are ya pooped? I bet you are. Got that coffee brewed yet? I'm sipping on some chilled tea... yum. It's 84 degrees here, but clear as a bell with no humidity and a lovely breeze... just enough to gently sound my windchimes out back. I really think I need to set me up a nice tent back there.. I love sleeping outdoors anyway.. love tents.. and the fresh air coming in through the little screen windows. The deer might stomp on me though. :uhoh21: They're coming after the apples that are falling from the big apple tree back there.

S'getti sounds good.. I could eat it every day. I just sent dh out to the garden after a couple peppers. Going to stirfry some beef strips, peppers and onions. :p

rninme.. I see you and Don have the gloomy drizzlies today. I do love days like that, though.. curl up with a good book, pot of soup or stew simmering in the crockpot... but you're right.... it AIN'T TIME YET !!! So NOT in the mood for turltlenecks yet. No, no, no !!! Hope you have a good noc at work. What floor do you work?

Well... it's just entirely too gorgeous out there to be sitting inside here. Took all the wash off the line, and now I need to find something else to poke around with out there so I can stay outdoors. Then again, I might just go sit in my swing... and SWING! :D

You're drinking tea in excellent weather and I'm drinking coffee in the heat and humidity. Go figure. ha ha ha

Kinda pooped, yeah, but it really was an o.k. day. I like one-day recerts. Normally, they know their stuff and it doesn't take a lot of instruction. With these new changes, I was having to stay on top of their BLS during resuscitation without protected airway. Will take them doing several codes before that sinks in, I'm sure.

Chillin' now. Wish I could just sit outside..........I'm jealous, jnette.

Any new pics of little Miss Sheshe? Wanna seeeeeeeee !!!

Well, I guess I should saunter out to the kitchen and start slicing up the peppers and onions...

Not in the mood to cook. Don't wanna. Want to just go back outside and set up a tent. :D
