Good Morning!

Ted, hope you get some rest.  Life surely is cruel, especially when the good and Godly get sick or age harshly.  This weekend I was dealing with some daughters of an 88 year old who obviously loved their mother and was sad with her decline and pain from a hip fracture.  Her dementia was heightened by post-anesthesia and it was painful for them to watch and painful for me to support them.

Nel, glad the big boy didn't need extractions and had a good report from the dentist.   Hopefully the tech situation is being addressed and documented.  I agree with J22, that it's hard to get rid of such people, but good that people let the manger know what's going on, so even if "nothing is being done", it's really a nail in the coffin.

BC, hope things don't get so busy and the head stops spinning.

Dianah, losing that hour of sleep affects me a bit too.   I feel adjusted now.  

I did not get called in and had a nice day.  I went to yoga, cooked and cleaned.  I volunteered to work overtime today, so it's off to work I go for three in a row.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Morning Tweety

Average day at work.  Few people answered my calls.  Hoping that changes or doesn't end up becoming an issue

Contacted the recruiter who was supposed to call last Friday, we're going to try again Thursday afternoon.  Also got another email from a recruiter

Decided to do the grocery shopping last night instead of Thurs.  I'm taking my car in for a recall repair tomorrow morning and picking it up that evening.

Was unusually warm last night so went for a walk instead of using the exercise bike

Will be warmer still tomorrow but rainy

Good morning Tweety and Joe.

It is very gloomy here today. We are expecting severe storms tomorrow. Oh, yay!

It clearly states in our employee handbook that sleeping on the job is a fireable offense.

So at the very least, I would have expected the NM to ask me the where and when questions associated with my charge.

She didn't.

That's okay. I have the picture, and if need be, I will use it, but with the DON.

I have also learned that another nurse alerted the NM to the sleeping. So my complaint wasn't the first.

But where the other nurse doesn't work with the tech much, and kind of let the issue go, I won't let it go.

There are others who would love the weekend position, and actually do the job.

Moving on...

I am hoping to walk today, Joe.

It is finally a bit warmer.

Hope work is kind to you, Tweety.

Time to drink coffee.

Good day nurses!

Was with step-Mom yesterday. Doctor sent young physician for house call regarding her not eating. Today I plan to pick up container at the office and get a clean catch from step-Mom. He will have phlebotomist come and draw blood. 

This guy finished his family practice residency in June and joined the practice.

Hello to all!

OK day at work.  Got lunch at a decent time and was relieved in the afternoon in the Stress Lab so I could go to my eye appointment.  Have not see my opthalmologist in three years, since I had my cataract surgery (left eye).  Bad me!  Prescription hadn't changed much though.  I ordered new glasses anyway, just cuz it's good to have a spare pair.  Plus it had been over three years...

Dh had his eye appointment today too, and also ordered new glasses.  Same reason: spare pair. 

We will go up to Oak Glen Friday night to attend their Friday Night Potluck followed by a Hymn Sing.  This is usually well-attended!  Ppl love to leaf through the hymnals (provided) and shout out favorites to sing.  We were asked to be prepared to do one or two songs as well.  Fiddler can join us, will be fun.

Sunday we will meet with bass player to practice for upcoming program at the Temecula Valley Bluegrass Festival.  We will play for an hour at 10:00 on Sunday.  We will camp there from Thursday, leaving for home Monday morning.  Will be fun to meet up with friends and do some jamming as well  -- our usual festival activities!  We will be able to take the dogger, he will be happy with this arrangement for he loves to go with!

I was good and walked to my appointment (five minutes' walk from work), then walked home (probably a total of one and one-fourth mile).  It was all level and mostly sidewalks.  Good for me.  I need to walk more!  Need to learn how to give myself a motivational kick in the tushus!! 

Hope you all have a good evening!

Hello all-

Had a busy day today so didn't get a chance to post earlier.  Sounds like everyone is doing well and staying out of trouble.  It's starting to warm up a bit here.  I can't wait for all this snow to be gone.  It's just dirty and ugly now.  I would like to walk outside instead of going to the gym.  All in good time, I suppose.

Tweety-Hope your overtime shift went well.

Joe-I'm jealous you could walk outside.  Glad you're having some activity with the job search.

Nel-Seems like your NM doesn't care that the staff is sleeping.  Wonder how the DON feels about that?  Hope the storms aren't too bad tomorrow.

Herring-I hope a simple UTI is the explanation for step-mom's poor appetite.

Stars-Was Nannie quiet today?  

Dianah-Love that you have so much going on with your music!  Keep on walking!

Peaceful sleep to all tonight!

Groomed Talli today. 

I called his name when I entered the pasture and he walked right to me.  He is very sweet.

Hoping we don't get severe storms that are predicted tomorrow.

Getting oil changed tomorrow and hair cut and colored.

Hope all have a good night.

Hopefully the oil change and hair cut and coloring are not at the same place.  I might worry a little if they were...  (grin)

Hi folks - been super busy and then sick with a cough that today made me think I was going to cough up a lung.  Haven't been around due to busy/sick.

The sun is shining today, finally.  Maybe a few days more. 

I'm off call! Had too many call days in the last 7 days. 

Not much else - gotta take some chux, briefs, and other donated stuff out to my mother-in-law.  She called me asking if we had "rubber sheets" . . . she's having some incontinence problems.  

Hope all is well 😁  Back later for wine . . . 🍷
