Hi all from Windpocalypse, 

Yeah, Steph, people in Seattle were acting the same way about cleaning out grocery stores. I think they got about 6 inches of snow, which is relatively a lot in an area that doesn't have a lot of snow removal capabilities. And it continues to be cold here. We got about an inch of snow, that has blown away with 30 mph winds and gusts to 60. Lots of power outages, but not us, for now. I heard of 1 house and 1 brush fire. 

Pace yourself, Tweety, those 12's certainly take a toll, and don't leave much recharge time between shifts. 

Ted, I've been telling myself to get an enhanced license for some time now, and your experience makes me want to put it off even longer! I have a passport, so I don't really need the license too, but it would be nice when I'm rushing to get to the airport and can't find the stinking passport!

NSIME, dh leaves those marks on "his" chair. I got a slipcover for it, but he didn't like the way it feels. Oh well. 

Herring, thank for sharing the music. Good to hear you enjoyed yourself. 

Joe, I feel for you about the job ambivalence. I finally got my application turned in for the 1/2 time position. I had to turn in a resume and cover letter, too.  I plan to stick it out for a year, but look seriously at retiring, or just getting out of nursing altogether. 

Nel is probably asleep, but hi any way. 

Going to hunker down with a book about Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

 Windpocalypse . . . has started!

Still, cloudy with sunshine and now tiny little round bits of . . .snow?

Went to the store to get some cleaning products, raw almonds, milk, cream for my coffee.

Oh, I have a question for you all.  When you ask for "cream" for your coffee in a coffee place or restaurant, do you mean half & half or true heavy cream?  Asking for a relative.

I edited the title. I saw it and thought I lost a day somewhere.  

I hope everyone is having a good day wherever you are.

Half and half. I have never heard of true, heavy cream, in place of half and half.

I must have half and half.

No milk, of any kind. Just half and half.

Tweety probably wishes it was Sunday. It would be the last day of his ordeal.

I wish it was Sunday!!!!!

Which RBG book, nursej?

Good luck with the job application.

I sent off email last night to NM and DON, over staffing us again with two LPNs.

I had to finish a new admit, and assess and chart on 11 patients (again).

The only thing that propels me in that place is the weekend program pay.

Without that, I would be gone.

Jumpin' Jehosaphat! I just lost my 2nd attempted post. RATZ!

Nutshell: 

I don't have auto correct, so most all of my errors are MINE! And many of them are ON PURPOSE! I do enjoy, once in a while, stumbling on that site where they post auto-corrected text messages...pretty darn funny, I think.

Right now my screen is doing weird things, flashing off and on, not letting me direct the cursor,  ARGH! And remember the old TV's with the "Vertical Hold" button? The screen was flipping like that! 

Are we in the Twilight Zone? Maybe tnbutterfly really DID lose a day, and when she fixed the date/day, we landed in an alternate time zone.

For instance, I'll bet not too many of you are aware that it is National Pizza Day? We need amoLu back here to help us keep up with the holidays like she used to do. It might be HER fault that I didn't get my yard decorations for National Pizza Day put out on the lawn and in the trees/bushes. I am hanging my head in shame, as we have the only neighhborhood house NOT done up for today's celebrations! GADS, how humiliatin".

Tweety, Your mind took over at 3:45 AM because it knew what you REALLY needed.....more sleep! So, turning off the alarm while you meant to set it, seems like a Freudian slip, kinda-sorta, maybe. Too many hours and too many days! With too many patients!  And too much paperwork!  And a couple of BIG FAT "ETCETERAS" stumbling around in your brain, looking for a place to rest.

Still having the odd blips and flashes. I should post this now because if I lose a 3rd attempted post, it's gonna make me VERY upset!

No way to edit that big, long empty space that contains my post. VERY WEIRD! Don't understand why THAT happened! 

Am turning off my laptop to reboot....

Moderators - Can you please combine our two threads for Saturday, February 9th, 2019? Thank you! 🙂

Usually I just report the thread rather than make a post they might not see for a while.  Just a suggestion from my tired, burned out confused as to what day it is self, so take it or leave it.  😂

So busy today with six patients, discharged three, started two IVs and moved three to the other unit for staffing purposes.  I worked with a good tech but seem very annoyed I worked so hard to get to the other side where they had a tech leaving at three pm.  She wanted to me delay the discharges and take my time moving like apparently other people do.  

Left at 8:30.  All in all I'm glad I'm young, vibrant and healthy and am holding up really well.  One more day tomorrow and I'm done with 60 or more hours in five days in a row.  woo hoo!

Booked tickets to see Patti Labelle in concert in April.  Nice treat.

That was weird, NSIME. And I see Tweety has a weird font change that I have had happen and seen on other posts. 

Mods, do you notify JoeV about this sort of thing, or should we do it?

I fixed the weird spaces on NSIME's post.

We have noticed the font change like in Tweety's post and are still working on it.

"Cool beans!"

I appreciate it! (but it was kinda fun having those huge blank spaces appear and mystify me!)
