Morning

Productive work day yesterday, with 2 completed questionnaires.  So that leaves little to do today

And I only work a half day today. Will do laundry then run by the convention to get registered.  Took more than an hour last time, hopefully it will be quicker this time

Had dinner with J last night, thankfully he let me know he was running late and we pushed dinner plans back a bit.  Seems things are going well with the new puppy, the other dogs don't seem to mind

Tomorrow I'll probably spend the majority of the day at the convention.  Might get out for a hike in the morning as the weather should be nice

Hello Joe!  Congrats on getting the quota of questionnaires done!  That's a load off your mind!  I am excited for you, having the convention coming up!  Kind of like me going to a bluegrass festival: it's different every time, and you look forward to the differences, but you also kinda know what to expect re: format. 🙂

I slept well.  Am getting things together for a gag gift for the White Elephant gift exchange, this Friday.  Will fill you in later.  Also, I ordered a frock coat for dh to wear to the Currier and Ives Christmas event, a week from Sunday.  I am anxious to see how the costumes look all assembled, and am anxious to see if things arrive in time for Friday's party. 

We should have more rain on the weekend. 

Have a good day!

Jeepers Creepers!

This morning I took my usual meds....and then I realized when I got my Bupropion refill yesterday, the pharmacy had given me a different size and shape pill ---without the notice that the med may be a different size and shape. SO! I have taken a double dose, and darn it all, it's an extended release tablet. GADS!

I called the pharmacy, then my doc's office, who forwarded me to Poison Control. EEPS! But the very calm pharmacist at poison control said that since I have been on this med for several years, maybe I don't have to worry QUITE as much as I have been.

I can expect to feel really jazzed up (not the pharmacist's words), which I am feeling....shaky hands, headache, irritability (oh joy) But, I don't have to be the one to go grocery shopping today because he told me to  not drive, and stick close to home! Yeh, some folks will do anything to get out of grocery shopping. 😋 

I just hope and pray that I don't have a seizure; never have had one, and don't care to start today!

Anyway, I am to call the Poison Control folks back if it gets bad, and also call them back around ten o'clock tonight, to check in with them.

This AM's coffee is decaf, and I have a large sippycup of water to drink frequently through out the day, as instructed. Some of my jitters are from being scared and nervous, but I do feel reassured after talking to Poison Control. 

dianah, thank you for your lovely post to me at the end of yesterday's Daily Diary.

I probably won't post until later this evening because my fingers aren't cooperating very well on the keyboard. Just wanted to share this morning's excitement....

Laydah!

Oh No Stars! I'm praying for you to feel recover from this and feel better as the day goes on.

The debate was somewhat interesting. Both debaters were real estate developers building apartment and condo building.They mostly agreed, but had different views on some things. One will not buile in a single family house neighborhood, because neighbors will be angry.

They both agreed that more multi home buildings will not make traffic worse because people who now drive two hours or more one was to and from work.

I left soon after Q&A began.

Good Afternoon!

Just a very quick "hello", unfortunately. Just woke up from Second Sleep. Will be getting ready to go to work, shortly. Work was a nice and steady busy, last night. I was "Mr. Shift Director" last night. The most challenging thing that was done, last night, was helping out to calm a very confused and forgetful individual who was insisting on going home. After much persuasion, the poor soul eventually calmed down and went to sleep. "Vitamin A", given by the person's nurse earlier, might have had a helping hand with that. The ER was its usual busy for part of the night. As for tonight?!? Who knows where I'll be working. If there're no patients in the ICU, I could be working anywhere.

Looking forward to the 3-day week-end off. Will be spending part of the week-end ensuring that the financial stuff associated with the hurt Jeep will be squared away.

Gosh. . . Got to get going. Hope all have a peaceful night, tonight. Cheers! 🙂

Ted

Hello, enjoying my day off. My jog/walk this morning was not the struggle that it was a couple of weeks ago, so that feels pretty good, except that I may have a touch of Achilles tendinitis, so doing lots of stretching and massage. Bedsheets are in the dryer, bird feeders are full, and bills paid. 

Stars, this is not what you needed, especially now. Hopefully it passes by the end of the day. Poison Control knows their stuff. Please take care. 

Joe, you are a rock star! I hope you have fun at the convention and get to see lots of old friends and perhaps make some new ones. 

Herring, housing is quite an issue here as well. Our county has been struggling to build affordable housing, as well as shelter for the homeless. Mother-in-law units, or accessory dwelling units are become popular for single family homes to use as rentals. My little town is considering waiving property taxes for 7 years on multiple-family dwellings, but question is who will pay for the impact of more families , such as roads, schools and fire/police. 

Dianah, we have a white elephant gift exchange coming up, so I need to hunt around for something fun. You need to post a pic of you and dh once your Dickens garb is complete. 

Ted, wishing you a steady, but not busy shift. 

Hullo to everyone who comes along...

Just dropped by to say all is well. No big symptoms to battle. And Nannie has been good (hope that is not like the "Q" word; like maybe I should say she's been "G"?) all day and throughout sunset. Nice change!

Housing development really needs to be carefully planned.

I live in a small condo community with small multi-unit quadriplexes (like 4 small units come together at the interior  point, like AZ, UT, CO & NM in the 'Four Corners' west states. I really only think of my next-door neighbor as my neighbor, like in a semi-attached home where our center wall is adjoining.

Well, about 1 month ago, there was a BIGGGG FIRE in a unit building abutting the communal parking lot across to my unit. It made all the local TV news accounts. I SLEPT THRU IT!!!  Never awoke from the noise or smell!

That situation has really caused me some deep thought. I'm homebound, totally dependent with my walker, and I move  slowly. I think - what would happen if that fire jumped the parking lot? Add to the situation that I have supplemental oxygen tanks for my cpap. And only a front door. Damn! I don't want to be an evening news bulletin!

I believe the unit that started that fire was Twsp-owned. I don't know but they may have provided some special housing arrangement.  And we do have a few unit rentals that are limited in numbers because too many rentals in a community makes for difficult mortgaging & financing.

I'm really giving some thought to my safety and that on a larger scale.

Am posting this not to lose it. To be continued ...

amoLu, I can see how that would be a scary living situation. Isn't there someone there familiar with your situation who might have at least checked in on you during or after the hullaballoo of the big fire?? I mean, YIKES!

Kind of a P.I.A. to have to start planning, but the fire provides a good incentive to get going on something that puts you in a much safer living situation. I had a friend who described sudden epiphanies as "being hit between the eyes with a dead, wet, cold squirrel. " A colorful description of something that gets your attention in an unpleasantly shocking way. 

Anyway, I would/will hope you can find a place that is safe, convenient, and not too expensive. 

I await the next 'chapter' ...

YIKES! 

PS: what is Twsp?
