Good Morning one and all,

 

I see Ted and Davey down there so hi and if you have a post up before moi Mods please merge us. Thank you in advance.

 

Busy busy busy is how my days are as I am off on Friday for nursing competencies and so it makes for a bit of a rush on those days I have to do visits. 6-7 patients daily keeps me running the roads but I much prefer that.

 

LOL I love my computer and charting in the home, it is expected of us to do it and have our notes locked before the next patient, my patients are so used to me charting on the computer it is second nature plus I educate them that I am expected to do so and I feel that it does not take away from my time in the home as I am never rushing my visits. They know at the end of my visit I will be quiet for a while (shock horror) LOL to do my narrative.

 

Enjoyed glorious weather yesterday with temps in the 90's a little warm for this time of the year but with no humidity it was just beautiful.

 

Off to look at a house on Friday night that is cute as a button (where did that saying come from?) and has a glorious view. It is out in the country where we love and a great buy due to a divorce so we shall see. It was built in 2000 although it is not what we were looking for but we both fell in love with it so we shall see.

 

Hope you are doing well and enjoy this beautiful day.

 

Much love to you all.

Mornin' Sabby.

Ted.

Well, I'm All Aglow because the Blue Funk ('51 Chevy Pickup) is Starting and Running rather well. I put in a New (rebuilt) Starter, Fixed the sticking Accelerator Linkage, soldered some Wiring, adjusted some Brakes and generally spent some Quality Time with my Antique Truck.

For nearly Three Years I've been working on Resurrecting the Blue Funk and now it's Driveable. I was not sure whether the Blue Funk would ever be Roadworthy, considering the Bent Frame and me Taking It apart and Putting It back Together Again. But- there it is!

The Kale, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussell Sprouts, Lettuce, Cabbage, and Tomatoes are doing well. The Squash and Cucumbers don't look well.

The Chicks are just about ready to be on their own.

Life is Good.

The Best to you All.

Good Morning -

Just finishing up the night shift. My one and only patient is doing fine; slept well, heart is still a-beatin', no complaints of pain or discomfort. :)

Dave - Glad to read that the Blue Funk (love that name, by the way) is "Drivable". . . hope that it can be "Roadworthy" for you! Also sounds like your garden is doing well (except for the poor squash and cucumbers). Curious, are the chicks for future eggs or future roasting? Just wondering.

Sabby - Well I guess it's another busy week for you. Hope you can take some time and catch your breath! How's the house-selling going?

Just about 35 more minutes until the end of the shift. Nothing much planned for today except mow. Hopefully it won't rain today! The grass really needs to get mowed! There's a mandatory in-service this later afternoon that I must attend. Blech. It all has to do with the computers and charting, of course. The 'roids are aching just thinking about it. But because it's mandatory it means overtime $$$. The 'roids are less swollen with that though. :)

Hope all is well with everyone. Peace, folks! :)

Ted

Morning Sabby Davey Ted

Fairly busy day yesterday, although not as busy as yesterday. For some reason I'm finding myself a little more relaxed at work and enjoying my job a bit more. Perhaps I'm finally adjusting to the chaos.

Did laundry last night shopped for cat supplies. Will do the grocery shopping today.

Good morning all.

FWIW, I did start a thread, here on the blue side about electronic charting, from a consumers POV. Feel free to add to it.

Joe, I suspect the anticipatory work you are doing in prep for Marge might be helping you deal with work better. It gives you a positive focus and takes some stress away. Pets do that so well.

Davey, congrats on the newest fixes for the Blue Funk. I am a bit envious of your gardening. I would not worry too much about the squash and cukes. They probably are waiting til you turn your head away and then swamp you with zucchini for frying, salads, baking, meeting new neighbors, losing old friends, etc. Cukes have this same ability, except more end up in jars with vinegar than the zuchs.

Ted, sleep softly and carry a big doughnut pillow for the in-service.

Seems like I stocked shelves my entire shift yesterday. Not quite, but I did leave very tired and achy.

Got word that I can move into the place one floor up. It has a great view, is smaller, and I can put another chapter in my life into the past with this move. I will miss many things about this place but feel like I am living in a bad movie with the family of SO always in the background looking over my shoulder.

I do plan to get my sheets washed today. Have been putting it off for days and they don't seem to be self starting to hop in to the machine. Also will pack things I do not use much. I have the walk in closet almost empty so now I can start filling it with boxes for the move. Winter clothes, jump in your boxes! I want to do the move in one afternoon. A bunch of friends, a case of beer, and a couple of pizzas, same as a college move.

Best get going. Laundry, then more coffee.

Going to rain today. It is a good day to get lots done here.

Enjoy the day.

Morning all. Well, Rex has managed to get into the raised bed despite the picket fence I put up around the plants. So far, the tomatoes are ok due to the cages. sigh . . . . :sarcastic:

Sabby - I cannot take my eyes off the screen due to the unwieldy computer program (well, the notebook screen is small too). Hopefully it isn't required by the rules and regs of hospice to lock your charting before you leave the home. Or I'll be in trouble.

Taking my inlaw's to the big city today. Father-in-law has an appt with the eye doc and then we go over to the Vet's Clinic for a mental health assessment for him. The NP he saw a month ago that I raved about said in order to dispense a med that might help with FIL's agitation/fear in the afternoon (sundowners) he has to be assessed by mental health. Then a provider can dispense a drug. He wants me to go along to make sure they don't Rx a benzo. He and I are on the same page about benzos and elderly folks with dementia.

It is a gorgeous day and will be hot. Ok by me!

Davey - good news about the blue funk :cool:

(The feeling hasn't passed yet Ted ;) )

Have a lovely day.

Good morning!

We had a cool day yesterday after hitting the high 80s on Monday. No wonder everyone is sick. But, there's no snow so I'm happy. This Friday is my annual Best Day of the Year, aka Tomato Day. My sister and I go out and get our veggie plants for our gardens. We make a day of it, have lunch, and enjoy it so much more than any other type of shopping expedition. Then Saturday is DD's Senior Prom, and Sun is DS's graduation. I have date #2 Sat. night with a really nice man I recently met. I can't imagine a better weekend. It makes me stop and reflect on how lucky I am.

Sabby-good luck with the house-both finding and selling. Ted-definitely bring the donut pillow. Don't want to get the 'roids in a rage. Davey-I'm glad the Blue Funk was not a DNR and has been resurrected. I'm jealous over your garden. It's not safe to plant anything here until Memorial Day, as we still have some pretty chilly nights. AKY-I'm glad the housing has been sorted out. It will be nice to get out from under the cloud of the outlaws. Joe-when are you picking up Marge? Hi Steph-I see you down there.

Best get back to work. I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning.

It's good to read you all and that everyone seems to be doing well. :)

I have an hour til I have to leave for work so it's time to hit the shower then I will probably play my guitar for a few minutes and sip some tea. It's a great way to relax. Then I go into work extra happy and relaxed. It's a win-win.

Better get going. Wishing all a wonderful Wednesday. :wavey:

2-happy-wednesday-bentalkhaleaj.gifGood Morning!

Sabby: not being rushed is key to accurate charting. Good for you to be able to document and give your patients the attention they need!

Davey: I'm glad the Blue Funk is OK. We miss our old red truck.

Ted: Sleep well and then--- FIRST COFFEE!

Joe: Glad you are enjoying work better.

AKY: Sorry your good job as the down side. Hope the stodking and other on-your-feet work is not too much in any one day.

(I'll do 12 hour day shift Saturday. My feet already dread it.)

Seems like the move will be good. Your planning ahead will make it easier.
