Made it to Tokyo without issue.  Resting before meeting the tour manager and group.  Its It's already 7pm here.  Tomorrow the tour starts.  90% chance of rain and cold with highs in 50s.  Will have to deal.  Definitely not in Florida.

Read everyone but on my phone and too lazy type.  Take care!

Good morning!

Glad that Tweety made it safely to Japan.  Stay warm!

It won't be getting out of the 40s here for a few days.  The end of the week should be warmer.  We're getting lots of April showers.  Work is busy as allergy season has arrived.

Hope all have a good day!

Good Morning! 🙂

Tweety - Glad you're safe and sound in Tokyo. Must have been a LONG flight! Enjoy the trip!!

BCgradnurse - The weather is damp and cool here, too! Getting those April Showers. Still, I'd rather have damp 40+ degree than snowy 20 degree weather!!

Yesterday, I caught up on sleep. After church, Sunday, I FINALLY got to bed around 1:30 PM, slept for about 3 hours, then got up to get ready to go to work. This lack of sleep, every other week-end, is so NOT fun. At least work was "Q" Sunday night. I finally dragged my fat behind out of bed, yesterday, around mid-afternoon. (Full bladder woke me up! L O L!) Felt good to sleep in, which is rare for me. For the rest of the afternoon, I just puttered around. In getting ready for our trip to Ireland & Scotland, in two weeks, I took out my camera(s) and lenses to see what I'll be bringing with me then. We're trying to keep our luggage down to a minimum. Still, I MUST take my camera! L O L! Decisions, decisions!

Today, both Amy and I are off from work. We have a small list of items that we need to take with us for our trip. Rain gear, is high on that list! After all, we're going to Ireland and Scotland. It rains there, too. A lot! L O L! We're not going to let a little rain (actually, most probably a whole lot of rain) deter us from enjoying our vacation, that's for sure!

Otherwise?? Nothing much going on. I'm off from work tonight, working Wednesday night, off from work Thursday and Friday nights, working Saturday night, then I'm off for four nights in a row next week. 

Currently?? Sipping on Second Coffee. Gosh, it tastes good!

Hope all have a pleasant day today! 🙂

Ted

Tweety hope your trip goes well

Morning BC and Ted

Pretty good day at work.  That nasty reviewer is actually saying nice things about my recent documentation.  Which is nice

Still in the job market but wondering if I should slow things down, since things are looking up with the current job.  One of the staffing firms contacted me about a position, but not sure it's what I'm looking for.  At the least I think I can be more particular about what I accept

Went for a walk yesterday as it was in the 70s.  Might do the same today as it'll be in the 60s

Might do grocery shopping tonight as Wed and Thurs will be cooler with lots of rain

All this talk about clouds and rain. . . 

When I woke up this morning, it was cloudy with a light drizzle of rain. Basically, it was a typical early-spring morning. Well, it seems that the sun is attempting to show its warmth and shine now! It's nice to see. With the sun currently making its presence in this part of the world, I'm reminded of a song from the mid-1970s by the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO): "Mr. Blue Sky"! I used to play this song over and over again when I was a teenage. I recently found this tune on YouTube, and started playing it over and over, again, as I did 44+ years ago! L O L! Love the tune! Enjoy! (The animation to this song is pretty wild!!) 😄

Good morning all.

Enjoy Japan, Tweety.

Invited my nurse friend for dinner last night.

Crazy.

I was coming off three, 12-hour overnight shifts, and was exhausted.

I made us Cuban-style, black bean tortillas, spinach salad and of course we had wine!

Such a warm day, and night, we went for a walk after dinner.

I work weekends, and she works Tuesday thru Thursday, so Monday is the only time we can get together.

She works at my facility, and knows the poor management and chaos.

She advised me to go into each shift, accepting the idea it will be crappy.

I try to go in with a more positive attitude, which seems to get shut down within minutes of arrival!

It was lovely yesterday, and Biggie's pasture mates were scattered across the field grazing.

My boy, was standing in the corner that faces the barn, waiting for me to come and get him. He nickered to me.

Sweetest sound ever!!!!!!!

Waiting for farrier to text me with arrival time today.

Have a great day.

Husband and I are so happy to have gotten a new passenger side mirror for his SUV and had it installed this morning. Yesterday morning we came from the eye doctor's office to find that some one knocked the mirror off. We used a parking lot. Total cost only $115.00! Fast service!

I just knocked the passenger side mirror off of my car, herring.

I hit a mailbox, while backing up. The mailbox was fine. My side mirror was on the ground.

It will cost just under $500 to fix. Called Toyota dealership, and they are ordering parts.

Biggie got his feet done.

Farrier texted me, just as I sat down to eat breakfast, saying he would be at barn in 20 minutes.

He must have thought I was sitting with phone and keys in hand. I live 15 minutes from the barn. He had to wait for me.

While driving the barn, I spied Talli, wearing a rain sheet on a sunny, 70 degree day.

I was livid!!!!

I pulled in and climbed the fence and took it off of him.

Poor thing! 

Then, I continued on to Biggie.

Lightly raining today, supposed to continue through the weekend, by which time my yard will be long enough to cut for hay.

For work I am trying to order meds for the next month, except I am having trouble figuring out what  crazy coworker has or has not dispensed. Of course, our ancient software system is having glitches. Argh! My 2 coworkers will be gone for a week at the end of the month, so I want to be as prepared as possible. And the 2 of them are freaking out because they are doing a poster presentation and almost nothing is done. I have been trying to advise, but its like herding cats. ADHD wants to talk about background colors and her dog and kayaking, OCD wants to keep changing from the original concept, and I am saying just expand on your submitted abstract and use the KISS principle. 

Monday I picked up the fog light that Mr. Dealership Parts Mansplainer  ordered, and of course, it is the wrong one. Ds is going with me tomorrow to return it. I actually found the right one on line, for about half the price I have paid in the past. 

Whine, whine, whine. I think a nice lunch will put me in a better mood. Here's hoping.

Okay, here I go; I will join in today's Daily Whine!  😉

While Tweety is in Japan, and Ted and Amy prep for trip to Ireland + Scotland....*I* am sitting here trying not to watch Nannie PICKING at the skin on her arms. She does this a LOT. I got 'technu' anti-itch spray that I put on her and it really helps her itching, but even though she says they don't itch today, she's still picking. GADS!

I also have to keep saying WHAT? Could you PLEASE speak up? I already have my hearing aide in and turned up two notches and she is still nearly inaudible. She doesn't articulate, nor does she enunciate. There's you a P.I.A. right there! 

I am going to sit outside w/ hubby and drink coffee and watch the birds. They are much cuter than a skin-pickin' Nannie.

Stars!

I think a great name for a Blue Grass band, would be: The Skin Pickin Nannies.

I like it!!!

Oh, I had a 20-second interaction with a cashier at Tractor Supply.

She said: Are you gluten free?

Me: No. Why?

Her: Because you act like my friend, and she is gluten free.

I had no idea how to respond.

What does any of that even mean?

The cashier appeared to be between 18 and 20 years of age.
