Hi Tweety

Dianah that's a lot of walking

NJ22 glad they have the cardioversion scheduled

Ado hope the cold passes quickly

Stars buying books always makes me feel better

Morning at work was so slow I had time to complete a CEU.  Afternoon should have been slow, but a pharmacy issue took up a lot of time.  But  I was able to get everything done no problem

Did not yet together with J.  His appointment with the visiting doctor for the life insurance went well, although the stress and late lunch upset his stomach.  We'll try getting together  Sunday instead.  

Today going to get coffee then bird watching at the Arboretum.  Won't be getting together with dad, he's still packing and might be looking at more apartments. Might try a newer restaurant near me.  If I have time I might do some of the cooking

Svengoolie has House of Dracula, which isn't bad, a monster mash type of movie

Think it will be in the mid 80s again today.  Hoping the cooler weather comes soon

Hello!

It was one of "those" nights: didn't get to sleep till after 4.  So, a nap is planned for today!

Nothing new to report here, except the temperatures have cooled down to the high 80's, which is nice!  And it's nice to feel cool air in the early mornings.

Have a good day!

Hi. It’s almost chilly here. 11 am and only 60 degrees. I had a good, long, walk/run at the park, then I stopped at the grocery store to pick up some ingredients to make panzanella, tomato and bread salad to take for potluck. My high class is getting together today. I missed last year. It’s been decided that we need to meet yearly due to declining health of folks. That’s a little morbid, but realistic. 
The new brewery was super crowded last night so we didn’t stay long. I was exhausted after 3 hrs of driving and stressing over my unorganized workspace. I went to bed early. And slept OK, up maybe 4 times in the night, my usual.

yesterday, co-worker was looking up the term flocculated, which was how a bacterial culture was described. She read it out loud, something to the effect of looking like the hair on a sheep. So I bleated like a sheep, which I do quite well, and we both started laughing. And then couldn’t stop. I also demonstrated my goat voice, which isn’t bad either.

Yup, I moo, too. A calf sounds more like a bawl.

It is 2:30 PM and Nannie is STILL in bed sleeping. Well, I THINK she's sleeping. I reckon I ought to go peek in the door to see if she is breathing. Probably will have to strip her and her bed if she's wet. 

Tweety, you were right....Today hubby says he will stop drinking on Monday! I should wake him up early on Monday and hand him a Librium to re-start his taper, but I won't. He has to decide and follow through on his own. Aside from being unsteady yesterday, he told me he is sick and tired of Nannie's "smart mouth". When he teases her and she's tired of it, she will say a few things that I guess he considers being a smart mouth. I'd be tempted to say worse if he did that to me, but he knows better.

j22, My best animal imitation is a guinea pig. It kind of sounds like a big drop of water falling into a pail full of water. I used to do a good screech owl's soft sounds. And a Barred Owl's loud call. Our mother used to 'talk to cows'....we would drive by a field where the cows were kind of close to the fence at the road, and she would "Moooooo" and invariably a cow would answer her back, We giggled every time! // Great word: flocculated! The computer doesn't seem to recognize it when I type it out, gives me a red line under the word. Tsk-tsk.

Joe, well I kind of feel sorry for J, it is hard being a 'delicate flower', and I don't say that in a mean way; he just doesn't hardly seem to catch a break from any of his health woes.

Braves won last night; we were behind the Phillies 2-1, until the 8th inning and then WOOOOOSH the action started happening, and we won, I think it was 7-2. Another game is on tonight....and for the next TWELVE days they will be playing with no day off until the 29th! Yikes!

So, I just got Nannie up and helped her out of her pj bottoms and pull-ups, and put on fresh, dry "protective underwear" and clothes. She had a p'butter and banana sandwich for her breakfast/lunch. And she is happy to hear there will be a ballgame on at 7:20 PM. So, when she gets through earing, I fully expect her to doze off and nap. I'll be disappointed if she doesn't!

Hubby is laid back in his recliner, has his 02 on, and he is letting out with an occasional snore. (But I'd bet if I said something, he'd say he's not sleeping.) I slept really well last night, although I should say it was morning because I didn't turn my light out until 3 AM. That's what happens when I start reading; I am a word-junkie and can't stop!

As predicted, Nannie is starting to drop off to sleep.

All be well!

Y'all crack me up with the animal sounds. J22, hope you have a good time with your class get-together. 

There's a potluck after church tomorrow but with this cold I think I'd better stay home. The choir is singing, too. I did a Covid test and it was negative. I was sure it would be but thought I'd better test before going back to work. 

Our niece just let us know that stepson contacted her. One of his friends had called the police to do a welfare check and when they came he decided to go with them. He's at a hospital and has plans to d/c to a mental health facility. Im so glad. If he will just comply with treatment! Our niece will be taking care of his pets (a dog and 2 cats) and she said she would clean up a little at his house. I'm sure it's a terrible mess. 

Hubs is excited to have solved the problem with the pressure washer. The boys went out and bought me some more cough drops so I can make it through another night. I haven't had much interest in eating but think I'll have a PBJ and some Throat Coat tea..

Hope you feel better soon, Ado.  What good news about stepson!  Hope he will continue with treatment. 

I did take a nap, before we had some lunch.  It sure felt good!  We just finished with the online jam, at which there were only three of us, but we had a good time.  The other player was from B.C., but latency was very tolerable. 

Hopefully tonight I will get to watch an episode or two of Time Team. 🙂

Have a good evening!

Get well Ado!

Uneventful day in med-surg land.  6:1 ratio and discharged one.  The one admission was coming at shift change.......of course.

Have a good night.

Annie, its probably too late for tonight, but I found Delsym cough syrup to be very effective, and it last 12 hours. 

yup, shift change admits, gotta love (not) them. On my old floor all admits came at shift change, but the managers tried to say that wasn't true. I had transporters complain because the halls were so full of stretchers at shift change. Well, there's your sign. I would start with a staff of 6 nurses, and every single one of them had a transfer/admit coming at 3pm, sometimes 2 coming at the same time.
