Good Morning to you all,

 

OMGoodness we had so much fun at work yesterday, our Director received all the RN texts about calling in sick while she was at a meeting, everyone got a good giggle about that. Great day full of lots of giggles. I live for April Fools Day, as long as the pranks are not hurtful they can be a whole lot of fun.

 

Looking at a very busy day today, many visits and follow up phone calls to ensure my patients are set for the long weekend. Need to ensure that everything is taken care of today.

 

Going to mow the lawn when I get home from work before hubby and I head out tomorrow for a long hike with the dogs before it gets too hot and thunderstorms occur.

 

I do hope you are all doing well this day and enjoy what ever it is you get up to today.

 

Much love and prayers for you all.

Good morning Sabby and everyone else who pops by,

Hard to believe it is almost the end of the week. Going to be warm today in the mid 60's with rain and possible thunderstorms this afternoon. Definitely the type of weather expect to see in April.

Today is my short day with classes until 3 pm. Planning on spending sometime studying in the library before heading home. My show the Big Bang Theory should be on tonight with no playoff games tonight, have missed watching that over the last couple of weeks.

Have a wonderful day everyone :)

Morning Sabby and Leonardsmom

Pretty good day yesterday, not too busy at work and did some errands afterwards. And it was warm enough that I could actually have the windows open, first time this year

Tonight planning to do the grocery shopping, shouldn't take long as I have a pretty short list as I'll be in Wisconsin part of next week.

Will start planning the trip, the forecast for next week Friday is looking good, in the 50s but no rain. Will look at what hotels are available but will wait a day or two before a reservation in case the forecast changes.

Yo, y'all!

Got through all of yesterday with nary a prank, which suits me just fine!

Home from another "Q" night. :) Picked up and additional shift for tomorrow with another tiny 90 who is a neighbor and long time friend ofmy tiny 98; the shift I will be doing w/ her is 8A-8P. She's been kind of going down hill, has been nearly blind for 4-5 years now, but having frequent falls.She was also a previous bridge playing partner to the lady who I took care of for almost 2 years (the one with the non-blood-grd-dgt.POA, who has pretty much ditched her to Healthcare.) So, anyway, this 'new' patient is familiar and comfortable with me so it oughtn't be too bad. I guess she is 12 hr shift daily now, so between the two of them I will have 3-4 shifts a week, giving me a blessed 48 hrs per week.

Hubby's surgeon's office dropped the ball and is two weeks late sending in the disability papers, so I don't know how long it will take for the checks to start coming in. The surgeon's office called him yesterday and told him he had to pay $400 up front before next Wednesday's surgery appt. He told them it would've been nice of them if they had told him this at the beginning of all this, because due to them waiting for two weeks to send his papers in to his company, he HAS NO $$$!. He told them he would just have to cancel the surgery; the office gal said she would try to get a waiver for the $400 or a reduction of the amt. they require. Said it may take her 2 days or so, but don't give up and cancel yet, please. After he hung up he went through his usual rant and rave about Dr's and the medical field and outrageous costs, etc, etc.

Today when I get up, we are going to start his Social Security benefits application; it'll be five months short of his 65th b'day, but we need all the the monies we can get, so it can't be helped. Somehow we will get through all this, but it sure is aggravating as all get out!

Okay, off to bed. The dogs are already snoring.....

Sabby: I love how you and your colleagues laugh and enjoy each other. I'm planning to retire soon and will miss that with my fellow hospital workers. Retired people are invited to parties and such, but it's not the same.

Leonardsmom: I like Big Bang Theory too. I've been a Star trek fan since the original show and belong to a club. The characters seem familiar.

When I was working and in school I took 1/2 hour a week to watch The Cosbey Show with my high school kids. Thirty minutes not thinking about all there was to do was great.

Joe: I've enjoyed your daily posts for years now.

Stars: I think your Hubby's SS will pay back to the first of the year so there should be a nice lump sum. That may help. I hope he is recovered before his birthday.

Hi Steph when you get here!

I'm planting a cantaloupe hill today. Got a wire 2 foot high fence to keep Duke and Perle from digging there. Yesterday we enjoyed a salad with just picked greend from the garden. it will be many weeks before we have tomatoes and peppers.

herring--I never liked cantaloupe until, when I was 32, my landlady gave me 1/2 one fresh from her garden, still warm from the sun, and sprinkled with salt. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!

herring the garden sounds wonderful. My grandfather use to have a small one in his backyard in St. Louis. I can remember as a kid when we would visit in the summer picking tomatoes, green peppers and cucumbers from the garden. Nothing is better than a tomato fresh from the vine and still warm from the sun.

We have a local cantaloupe hybrid that is grown around my area that is just delicious, it has a little more of a sweeter taste than regular cantaloupes and a little more tender. They have a big festival every year featuring them, don't get into the festival aspect of it much, but sure do try to a least get one melon when they become available in the late summer. Usually one is more than enough for me to try to eat on my own.
