Hi! Thanks for checking out my page. I've been a member of allnurses since Apr 8th, '11. I have no blogs or journals to follow, but you are welcome to find me on the threads I follow, where I love humor and silliness to counter the seriousness of life. Feel free to chime in.

    Changing the subject...

    We decided to try a new pizza place tonight; called in the order, everything's hunky-dorey, price is right, and then...How long will it take to be delivered? 2 hours??? I seriously doubt I want to wait that​ long!
    IHIWTH!

    Ended up NOT going to the museum.
    The display is only there through Tuesday; I can either go over the mtn after my Al-Anon mtg tomorrow lets out at 2 PM, which is fine because the museum is only open between 2 PM and 5 PM. If I can't do it tomorrow, and have to work Sat/Sun/Mon, it's Tuesday or never. (GAH!)

    But I did go out and purchase a top and a bottom to use for exercise +/or tai-chi. Also got me my 'water shoes' so I don't catch anybody's feet-a-mus germs and crud-bugs.

    Nope no job yet. The person who was going to help? I dunno. The human resources person wasn't in, whatever-whatever, I dunno. Supposedly called Lowe's and "the two job openings they had yesterday have already been filled". Well, yah, there's people really wanting and needing work, so they strike when the iron is hot. Imogene THAT! (I can tell I need that al-anon mtg.)

    Hoping to find an interesting movie to get involved in tonight...

    When you get older, it takes a lot more time to do nothing.

    Good Thursday morning to one and all!

    Fell asleep on the sofa again last night, struggled awake at 2:45 AM and trundled off to bed for real; slept another 5 & 1/2 hours. Could probably close my eyes and sleep another hour or so, if I wanted to, but then half the morning would be gone.

    Yesterday I brought my shoes to the cobbler; a pair of Reebok's which I've had for several years but have hardly ever worn. They are not in bad shape and the tread still looks brand-new, but the toe-box is wanting to separate from the sole. Needs to be re-glued so I can get more wear out of them. I switched back to wearing my Clark clogs, after 2 weeks of wearing just lace-up shoes...wow, I did not realize how the clogs were contributing to my knee, leg and hip discomfort; I'll be glad when I get my shoes back!

    Not sure of the day's agenda. Want to go over and down the mountain; there is a museum display on the 1916 flood that devastated the area. I probably have already mentioned that I had a patient here once, years ago, who had also worked for my mom in her store up North; that woman lived here as a child and was witness to the flood. After having had a first-person accounting of the experience, when I saw the blurb in the paper, I knew I wanted to go check it out.

    If hubby wants to go over to the museum with me today, he'd better take care of his bi'nezz of completing an application at Home Depot first!
    No field trips until the assignment is done! Besides, if he gets the job, he also gets an employee discount, and this is important because
    yesterday the ceiling fan/light in 'my' room, after near constant use through 20+ years, has finally give up da ghost.

    Tomorrow morning is an EARLY morning appt for BOTH dogs at the Vet's office. They are so way overdue on exams, shots and blood tests and flea/tick tx, etc, that this visit will be costing us close to $500! But a little at a time I have managed to whittle down our high-dollar to-do list and this was the sixth thing on the list. I think there are three more things on the list that have been waiting in line for their turn. I am grateful that I can see some progress in that respect!

    If I don't get up and move around, I really will fall back to sleep right here and now.
    Will check back in latter on...

    Speaking of Jimmy Carter, does anybody know the value of a six-pack of "Billy Beer"?

    Judging from the number of people on the internet at any given moment.....
    Don't you agree?

    Maybe the prize is the thrill of playing the game?
    Now, tell me...is it really such a "thrill" to be playing this game?

    You are soooo lucky; I had been writing a long reply about box turtles; I was going strong into the third paragraph when the screen got the hiccups and the whole post just diskapeered :*POOF*

    So, here's what I was originally going to post: a line of dialogue from an old black'n'white movie from the late 1930's; a blond woman is foot-stomping mad, and she yells:

    "You're crazy! Be reasonable!"
