Guess I’ll have to monitor the comments again. dagnabbit.
Off to save lives.
s-h-h-h… it’s so quiet in here. Lucy pooped and went back to bed. Hubby is still sleeping… and I’m having a cuppa before I chop a head of lettuce for our Mexican Fiesta today at the hospital.
Yes, it’s my saving lives weekend. Busybusybusy. Geesh. I don’t think it will ever not be busy again. Did I tell you that a couple of months ago we went hospital wide with our “respiratory therapy protocols?” Which means that the docs write an order for us to see their patients, and we do an assessment to decide what kind of treatment they need?
It’s really pretty remarkable — finally, we order what the patients need and not just what the resident thinks that they should order… just because. Of course it means a ton o’ more work involved on our part, but in the long run, it is a good thing.
Earlier this week my 91 y/o dad-in-law had surgery for an obstructed bowel. Came through with flying colors. Now it’s just a matter of escaping the hospital without major things happening post-op.
You know how the hospital is one of the worst places to be sick in… frequent infections afterwards… dirty place. Well, not visibly, but there’s so many variables and hospital acquired pneumonias, it’s just a good day when a patient leaves with everything still attached and in working order.
He’ll be ok.
Alrighty, must chop lettuce. You know, I’m the first one to buy things all conveniently chopped up, but paying 1.79 per bag of chopped lettuce (and 2 of them) compared to 99 cents for a head of lettuce, I just couldn’t bring myself to do that… so that’s why I need to chop-chop.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
What a stressful day. First I had to install a wireless network here. Oh ya, “easy” – not necessarily m’dears. I think the first time I attempted it was complicated by the fact that I already had a hub for my cable connection… oh nevermind, not important.
Bottom line, I was successful with the wireless hook-up – yay. Everything is cool with the laptop connecting – yay. BUT, what was the tedious and stress producing activity of the day (ALL day) was getting hubby’s new laptop primed and set up for his use.
I don’t know how you laptop users get accustomed to that freakin’ pad/mouse business. It’s a pain in the ass if you ask me, and first thing tomorrow, I’m buying a good ol’ mousey for it. I don’t have the patience or the time to fart around with getting the little arrow “just so” in order to open what I want opened, and not every other window that I don’t want. Ya, ya, “you’ll get used to it…” — don’t wanna.
ANYway, as much as hubby has obtained a fairly decent knowledge of the computer now, he’s still quite a novice and just can’t grasp the fact that a computer can’t do ALL things by itself. So when his import file “Wizard” keeps telling me that his exported bookmark.htm is not a valid bookmark file, I don’t know what else the hell to do about it. Of course then *I* am the one who’s doing something wrong. Maybe I am, but at 12:00 a.m. I can’t deal with it any longer.. especially since now hubby is frustrated and pissed off about it. bah!
I’m also a little disappointed that I didn’t get to work on my redesign of Ink2Art today, which I’ve been putting off to work on client stuff.. ya, boo-hoo, poor me.
geeesh, maybe I should just go to bed and start over again tomorrow, especially since we lost an hour tonite with daylight savings time. Yay, spring ahead! Then again, I’m too hyper to go to bed… ok, you convinced me. I’m going to play with Ink2Art now.
Speaking of, you know that actress site I was working on? H-e-r-e’s Norma! Fun.
Alrighty – later guys.
Do you ever say to yourself, “ok, I’ll just do this one more thing, THEN I’ll take a break… or, I’ll just finish this part, then I’ll pee.”
Good grief, I only have to go about 8 ft away to the bathroom, but I put it off. Same with doing “one more thing.” I am extremely tired right now, and I’ve been telling myself that I was going to rest my eyeballs for a few minutes… after I do this, then after I do that. And you know, the longer I sit here, the more things keep coming!
Gotta stop right now, k?
“Black men are an endangered species,” said McGee. “You have to protect endangered species. There is no other ethnic group or person in the world than the black man in America who is losing their life at the rate we’re losing our lives.”
The article speaks for itself. I’m speechless.
I can’t tell you how absolutely wonderful it feels to be caught up on client work! Actually, I probably did tell you already. Yes, it’s truly a liberating feeling.
Oh sure, I have a lot of work to complete, but all of the work is fun. Yes, I said fun! I’m also working on a new site for an actress — and she was on Crossing Jordan last nite! That was pretty cool, seeing her in the first 10 minutes of the show, although she was shot shortly after her appearance (she was the social worker with the daughter of the dead guy). But at least she wasn’t killed, so she’ll return in a couple of weeks – ha.
A-a-n-d, I’m creating a new-do for Ink2Art. It’s time… getting a little stale to me. So that’s fun. Nope, still haven’t finished putting FMG back together. Pretty extensive job, and not all that fun.
Fun, fun, fun. I’m putting the FUN back into my work. It’s all about the fun for 2006!
ALSO fun – hubby retires in 5 days!! That tops my fun list this week. After 32 years he will be out of there. Well, the whole plant will be outta there, we’re just fortunate that he can retire first! yeah baby! He’s taking the summer off for FUN, then will probably do something job-ish. We’ve always talked about him being in security at the hospital. I think he would make a wunnerful security guy (what do they call ’em? Dimestore cops? no… umm… what is it??) I do think he’d be a hit with the staff, indeed. Nice and intimidating for the no-gooders, as well as a sweetheart for the rest of us. So that would be cool, yes?
Okee, I’m off to have fun! c’ya later.
