Morning

Odd, woke up early, fell back to sleep and had a nightmare that my car had been vandalized.  I haven't had a nightmare in many years.

Work was OK yesterday, think I'm adjusting to the changes.  Have to be in the office over lunch for a 2 hour meeting, so less than usual will get done today.

Emailed that recruiter but haven't heard back yet, would like to talk and see if it's an opportunity I'd be interested in 

No choir practice last night and no dinner with J, so I did the grocery shopping and a little packing in preparation for the weekend

Not much to do today but exercise.  Weather is holding steady which is good

Good morning, Joe.

I had a dream the other night, that involved a professor from graduate school.

He is dead.

We were at a party, and he stretched out his arms, and we danced.

I hate dreams where the dead welcome me.

The sun is shining. But we are expecting more rain over the weekend.

Several streets in Lexington were closed yesterday, due to flooding.

I have customer service training today in Lexington, so thankfully, no roads should be closed.

Coffee is next.

Then off to inservice, on my day off!!!

Safe travels.

Good Thursday to you! Not sure what I'll do today. I plan to walk to the farmer's market tomorrow.

Joe: Enjoy the exercise!

Lil Nel: I hope the "customer service" day is tolerable with easy driving.

G'mornin' n' afta-noon ...

Got up at 6:40 AM so I could get the doggers over to their new groomer's for their "express" appointment at 8 AM, ie: both in early, out in two (or so) hours. Ozzie's haircut was not the best, but he was gnarled up pretty wicked. And after all, it was a first appt, so it'll get better next time. Pippy looks okay, but not as much was buzzed off of her. At least she is CLEAN!

Nannie's had stumble-brain a few times this week, like word-salad or alphabet-mouth. These are the first quite noticeable occurrences, to me. Her short-term attention span or memory-bank of things recently said or happening to her has become shorter still. There's a 20-30-second erase time, and then the same question comes out of her mouth.

She is also harder to understand, because, after all, SHE doesn't mumble! It is OUR ears, doncha know. I tried once to explain to her that she talks in a very southern twang, words not E-N-U-N-C-I-A-T-E-D, and all tangled up in the back of her mouth and throat. If she would use her diaphragm to expel air past her vocal chords like the body is designed to do, she'd be easy to hear.  She is quite capable of doing so. When she talks on the phone, from her chair in the den, *I* can hear every word clearly from up on the third level, in my room, even without my hearing aid in!

Not much going on here.

Good Afternoon -

Just a quick but warm hello to you all. 

Worked last night. Working tonight. Doing the usual "sleep, eat, work" thing. Also, making plans to spend over-nights with Dad. Talked to him a little while ago. He seems in good spirits. It is obvious that he struggles more to get the words out, though, since these presumed TIAs. Visiting Nurses will be seeing him Saturday, finally. Hopefully PT & OT will follow. It's a slow process to get the supportive care in order, it seems. Don't know why Dad's wife hasn't called Hospice, yet. At least other supportive services are coming into place. 

Hope all are doing well. Gotta catch some more ZZZZZs. Those ZZZZZs have been hard to catch, though. (Ugh!)

Peace. . . 

Ted

Forgot to mention the TREMENDOUS storm we had a 1 AM last night. I'd been asleep maybe 20 minutes or so, and suddenly two dogs jumping all over me on the bed felt like a dozen dogs. The snapping, clapping, rolling, banging thunder was right overhead, so it was accompanied by brilliant white flashings of lightening. Had to dope the dog (ie give Ozzie CALM DOWN drops for critters) Pippy won't let me give it to her. She kept diving under the covers and then popping back out so she could keep track of what was going on outside our window. Oz wouldn't stop shaking and barking, so I scooted him under the far corner of the bed in his "Cave". He was quiet after that; I guess the herbal drops kicked in. 

Then we had round #2 of the storm ... eventually it quieted down and Pippy curled up to sleep. Me? Not so much sleep; I got about 4 & 1/2 hours. I feel SOOOOO irritable today. When I tried to nap this afternoon, that's when Oz stood down in the den and barked repeatedly. I gave up and fed them supper and made myself a cup of coffee. Now I am up in my room on my laptop, and plan on staying away from the den (read: Nannie) until after supper. Both dogs are sound asleep on the foot of the bed. Huh. Sometimes life ain't fair, is it?!

Ooh, its sunny and semi-warm here. Snow forecast for tomorrow. My poster board that I threw together was a big hit. I was so expecting to be told it was wrong, because the person who asked for it is known to do that. I watched an interesting webinar on rabies. Apparently it is only endemic in bats in my part of the country, but it is found in raccoons in the East, including Kentucky!

I immunized a 6 month old for flu. She was so cute, but very petite. Her parents are Asian and native and she looked like a little doll. Up until I poked her, that is. I really don't like that part of my job. 

The was some extra lavender mint tea in the break room and I must say, it is quite tasty. I usually have coffee in the am, and just water in the pm, but this is pretty good.  Youngest ds just called me in a panic because he couldn't find the tickets he bought for the flower and garden show tomorrow. But of course they turned up. In his car. Not sure I would have looked there, but mm, okay. 

Wishing good sleep to Ted, effective exercise to Joe, an uneventful drive to Nel, and a lovely walk to herring. And NSIME, behave yourself girl!

nursej22: I'm glad it is sunny and warm for you!

Today it was COLD. Driving from the store snowflakes lasted  a few seconds before melting. On the radio they said it snowed at Malibu beach. Our outside thermometer stated 32 F at 3:00 pm. 

Daytime freezing temps only happen here every eight to ten years. Last time I saw snow on beach sand was 1972.

If it is not raining , or snowing ?, I plan to walk to the farmer's market.

Inservice was tolerable, herring.

I climbed up into the hay loft, at Talli's barn yesterday to drop a hay bale.

When I picked up the hay bale, something jumped out.

I thought it was a cat.

It was a raccoon.

I did not attempt to pet it.

It gave me a perturbed look, and walked away.

While I enjoy the raccoons who hang out with the parking lot cats, I don't want them living in the barn with the horses, and horse feed.

I have never seen a raccoon at Biggie's barn.

Talli is definitely herd bound. He will get used to me bringing him in. Eventually.

He sniffed my legs today, and nipped my knee.

He is funny. He and Biggie are complete opposites.

Biggie is just like me, and Talli is so laid-back and chill.

I remember in microbiology, our instructor telling us, that if a rabid dog is chasing you, let it bite you in the butt.

Something about fewer nerve endings in your butt. Don't let it bite you hand.

I drank hot chocolate tonight. Probably shouldn't have done that. I am wide awake.

Hello all,

Busy day in the Cath Lab, ended up doing only diagnostic caths, no interventions needed.  Of course, we referred three of the six pts for CABG.  

It was nice to get lunch at a decent time, too, rather than 2 or 3 in the afternoon.

I am in the Stress Lab tomorrow, then we get the weekend, hurrah!

This weekend we may do some music in the morning at the Big Church, for Sabbath School (the usual), but have no afternoon plans.  

Sunday I am scheduled to get taxes done, I am gathering receipts and W-2's for that.

Yes it was cold and wet here too, and the mountains looked beautiful this afternoon when the clouds parted!  I read they even closed the I-15 going East through Baker, all the way to the Nevada state line -- due to snowfall!!  Then they re-opened it with police escort, to keep the speeds down.  Yes, I also heard about the snow in Los Angeles area, as did herring.  Brrrrr!  I think we were a tad warmer than 32, herring!  Stay warm and safe!

Dh and I watched two Poirot episodes tonight.  Yes, we are re-watching them.  They are so well done! 🙂

Have a good evening!

Another wet, cold, mizzable day here. No snow, lotsa rain.

 I stayed up in my room doing some paperwork re bills and getting things together for someone to figure my taxes. Picking up my clutter. Otherwise it's been okay; I'm not as irritable today.

We all got up late morning. The minute Nannie started in c/o her skin again, and began talking about something a dermatologist did or said at an appointment she had AT LEAST 2 years ago ... I got up and took my cup of coffee upstairs.
