Now that my work is caught up.....

K, we all need some humor in our lives now and again. Found this, supposed to be on a t-shirt, thought it was dorky enough for the blog peeps. LOL
So, had a good Christmas. Too busy, but then what's new there. I really can't wait until Todd and I get a nice big place and we can just do Christmas at our house and not have to go 20 places!
Bryson's gone for the week. I miss the little stinker!!! But, it is nice to have a little break too. Todd and I needed some time to ourselves.
Well, that catches you up on my life. Yup it's like the title...boring. Lata

F-ing Bullshit

Too much drama. I want to go home.

Monday, December 22, 2008


I am so bored here at work today! It has been an insane day for me. I am scheduled to be on PIC until 5pm, and helping train the new/return worker on the new system. Then I've been putting away the deliveries, and helping get the order ready for the week, since Jami is out with a broken ankle. Ahhhhhhhh.....crazytimes. And I came this close to falling down the stairs! Cuz I am THAT talented! Lol fun times.

We have something like 18 inches of snow now. It's pretty and all, but it's cold wet and irritating! At least we'll have a White Christmas, and it's good for the summer what with all the "drought" conditions we've had over the last couple years.

Our washing machine went ka-put over the weekend. So, now we have to go out to Aaron's tonight to see about getting a new washer and dryer, since our dryer takes like 4 hours to dry one load of laundry. And that's on a good day! So, since all I've had since moving out on my own is hand-me-down stuff, we are getting something new and nice! I want a front loader combo, maybe with steam. Kinda depends on what the payments will be, but if we are buying somethine new, might as well get what I really want. Right?????

Ok, well I'm off to pretend to do some work for the next 4 hours until I get to leave. Chao

Secret Santa

Got my first Secret Santa gift today!! Yay me! It's a really pretty, live, tree. Someone has not realized that I have the brownest thumb on the planet!! LOL I really do love it. It's so cute. And, some of the ornaments that are on there are really great. My fave is the snoman one, totally going in my ornament collection to be used in the coming years. Now, I just have to figure out what to do with the tree....I know we won't be living at our place forever, so not sure if I want to put it in the ground, or get a great big planter so that it has room to grow until we move...... Ahhhhhhh......making my brain work is not a good idea!!! LoL. Well, need to get going. gotta figure something out for lunch since the "lunch" that was delivered was a litte bitty meat and cheese tray. Blah.....ok for snacking, but not to feed 50 or so hungry people!! Lata

Helloooooo Trixie!

I have this "special" friend, her name is Trixie, a cute little nick-name I gave her cuz she turns tricks everytime I have my back turned. If I've told her once, I've told her a thousand times.....Men like it when you play hard to get. But I just can't seem to get it through her thick skull. I dunno, maybe I need to slap her around a little....she does like it rough......

She has a couple friends, that I'm not too sure about, Darlene --woo woo twilight zone there!-- and Freda, who has her convinced that she needs to take me shopping Target and get me to buy her a ring. Saw a picture of said ring, and it looks purty serious. Damn Freda and all her daytime TV shows that keep her convinced that she needs commitment. I told Rachel to set the TV to Barney or something easier on Freda's brain, not sure what's going on there. Trixie can't handle all those big words though, so if Freda doesn't knock it off, I'm gonna have to go over there and kick some serious bitch ass. That is if Rachel can keep Freda out of jail for longer than a week at a time.

So, the three girls were talking the other day, and I'm pretty sure Darlene was trying to convince the others that dubies were "good for thier health". Don't know why Jenni doesn't nip that crap in the bud. Don't need my woman out getting stoned everytime I turn around. How'm I supposed to get the action I need outta her if she's so out of it she can't service the men I bring by for her??? She has to earn her keep somehow. The woman has one heck of an appetite and I can't afford to feed her all the time if she's not bringing in any money! Sheesh. It's not like I'm running a free shelter here or something.

Oh, damnit! Gotta run....just got the call that she got her lips stuck in the mixer again. Damn woman! Don't know why she thinks she needs brownies all the time! It's dangerous for a woman of her limited mental abilities to be in the kitchen unaccompanied. Guess I'll have to think about a sitter for her or something. Well, I'm off to the ER to rescue her once again.

Good thing she's such a looker....wouldn't put up with this from just anyone.

I need some Tranquility in my head

Wouldn't it be nice to be like the rain dripping off the eaves? To be poetry and not have to use words to explain ourselves. Words cannot always do our emotions justice. Human emotions are much to complex for words.

After my horrid night last night, all I want is a little tranquility. I managed to find some amazing pictures on the world wide web. One I'm using for a screensaver, it's able to suck me into it and calm me, if only for a moment before I am dragged away for more fun and excitement at this party that is Physician's.

The other picture that caught my eye, is the one I have on this blog here. Somehow the words spoke to me and I had to use it. I also had to print off a copy that does not come close to doing it justice for something to just stare at. Even now my earlier statement proves true, words cannot do our emotions or thoughts justice all the time.

I am so thankful for the friends I have here at work. They let me invade medical records and vent without judgement. In fact they even understand where I'm coming from. I'd still be full of mental anguish and confusion if not for their willingness to listen and commisserate. Thank you Jenni and Rachel. You are both priceless friends!
Now, here's hoping I can force my brain to move on and give up the urge to punch my husband in the throat and kick him in the nads for accusing me of not planning meals for him, but doing so for the girls at our little luncheons. I hadn't realized how horrible I was being for trying to save a little money by not going out to eat at McD's at lunch time. I guess I'll have to try and spend less than the 2 seconds online getting a recipe for my next lunch day that I spent yesterday, so that I would have something easy and quick and not have to make 2 meals last night.
Salisbury steak is on the menu tonight and if Todd opens his big mouth and complains to me, he may not live to see tomorrow. I spent more time last night going through my cookbook for a recipe for tonight than I ever have for the girls at our work lunches. I still don't get where the hell he was coming from, or how he felt he had any right to be pissed that I would get one recipe off the internet for lunch when I have combed recipe books and sites for yummy ideas to use at home.
Well, guess I should get off here and find out if there is something I need to be doing here at work. Not that I want to. I'd rather be at home in my nice warm bed, dreaming of a gorgeous man like I had to do last night just to be able to fall asleep.
A note to Rachel......please post more about our friend Freda!! I need something that will make me laugh!!! And, Freda promises to be about the funniest thing around!

Allright, snow is pretty and all that, as long as it stays off the roads! I can drive in it just fine, but I don't like to, because there are so many other idiots out there who cannot drive in it. Seriously...60 miles an hour on slick roads is STUPID! Give me a break. I totally get stressed out over it.

So our lunch cancelled on us today because "he couldn't get out of the driveway". Puh-lease. I got out of mine just like everyone else who had to be at work today. Along with the weirdos who came into PIC on a crappy day like today. Todd didn't work today, so he came over and took me to Mongolian Grill. Yummy! It was nice to just chill with him and not have a 3 year old along!

Went to the Boat Parade on Saturday. Richland did their 50th anniversary fireworks! That was great! 500+ fireworks set to music! Nice! I can now say that I've watched fireworks in a snow storm! Very cool. The boat parade was pretty neat also. Bryson's fave was the one lit up like a car with a tree on the roof. I took some pics, but I'm not sure if they turned out or not. I haven't gotten around to loading them onto the computer yet. Guess I should do that sometime, so that I'll have room for Christmas pictures.

A whole lotta Nuthing!

So, I'm here at work with nothing to do. Well, that's not totally true, I could do more overdue lab letters, but that's boring and what I've been doing for days now. I'm through to Q, have to start on R whenever I get around to it. Today has been a really slow day for floating. I stocked the upstairs storeroom, and talked with Jami about the order. Did my rx requests. Chaperoned for Dr.Gillespie, that's boring...all you do is stand in the room and make sure he's a good little boy so he can't be accused of doing naughtyness whith the female pt's. Talk about falling asleep while standing up!
Speaking of sleep....I haven't been sleeping well at all lately. Not 100% sure why either. I know a part of it is because of my back being all out of whack, but now that it's getting better, I'm not sure why I'm not getting better sleep. It's not fair, cuz then all I do at work is yawn, and fight to keep my eyes open. And whine about being tired of course. Guess that's why I used this picture today. I'd much rather be sleeping with my boys than here at work today.
Found out that I'm going to be painting the "consultation room" this weekend. I'll bring a change of clothes, and stay late on Friday to work on spackling all the areas on the walls that were screwed up when they took down all the shelves. That way when I get over here on Saturday, it should be dry and ready to paint. At least I don't have to worry about getting paint on the carpet since they are putting in new stuff. Whoo Whoo, makes the job a little easier. Still, all the spackling and texturing is gonna suck!
Bryson got to go see Santa today at the Library with his daycare. I can't wait to hear what he has to say about that! He's so freaking funny. I wasn't very happy when I found out that I was pregnant, since I'm not a big fan of kids, but I am so glad that he's here! I am so blessed to have him and my hubby!
Well, since there is only about 45 minutes left of my day at work, I'll get off here and find something to do. Lata

Killing Time

All right, all right! I know I've been slacking for a while on this blog thing, but unbunch your bundies everyone cuz I'm back! Lol. Anywho. This whole Thanksgiving weekend has been nutty. Crazy busy. I worked the day before, and then went home and was up until 11:00 making rolls from scratch! AHHHHH Yes, I am insane! Then Thursday, we spent the day out at the in-laws, and it was actually quite nice. Other than the fact the my back felt like it was broken anyway. We got to visit with an aunt and uncle of the hubby's that we actually like. Found some nice (cheap) wines that I really like. The day was rather relaxing. Then I worked 8-5 on black Friday-fine with me since I'm broke, and couldn't buy anything anyway. After work, we went to Todd's grandma's house and were stuck with some relatives we really don't mesh well with. Talk about irritating!

Well, on to more fun things like Christmas decorations! lol. My hubby is actully into that this year. Normally he's a bah humbug sort, so this is a nice change. I think a lot of it has to do with our son being so excited about Christmas this year. The past few years he just hasn't understood, but he's at the age now where it's the most exciting time of the year!!! FUN! We got him a Wii for Christmas. Probably don't really have the money to afford it, but ...oh well. Todd and I can't wait to break the sucker out and play it! I think we may even end up taking out to Cin and Lou's when we go out there after opening gifts at our place Christmas morning! I am totally stoked to try it out!

Todd has been so great lately! Helping out with the housework and cooking dinners and breakfasts. It's really nice. Although it throws me for a loop since it's so different from the usual. I think a lot of it has to do with him thinking I want more romance. Which would be nice, but I knew from the get-go that he's not the romantical type, so I wasn't holding out for that or anything. I can't seem to convince him of that yet though.

Well, I'm heading out the door soon. Check back in with you all later.

Flightless Bird, American Mouth

I was a quick wet boy

Diving too deep for coins

All of your straight blind eyes

Wide on my plastic toys

And when the cops closed the fair

I cut my long baby hair

Stole me a dog-eared map

And called for you everywhere

Have I found you?

Flightless bird,

jealous, weeping

Or lost you?

American mouth

Big bill looming

Now I’m a fat house cat

Cursing my sore blunt tongue

Watching the warm poison rats

Curl through the wide/white fence cracks

Kissing on magazine photos

Those fishing lures thrown in the cold and clean

Blood of Christ mountain stream

Have I found you?

Flightless bird,

brown hair bleeding

Or lost you?

American mouth

Big bill, stuck going down

My husband was abnormally sweet last night. When I got home from work, he was washing the dishes and cooking dinner. Rare on the dish washing....not the cooking. After dinner, I decided to make a couple batches of cookies, so I'd mixed the dough and was waiting on the oven. Decided to do up the dishes that I'd gotten dirty and the ones we'd eaten off, and he came into the kitchen and told me he was going to do those. I was almost shocked speechless. Normally I have to ask and sometimes even guilt trip him into helping with any housework.

After we went to bed, we were laying there and he was watching Heroes. He wouldn't let me fall asleep, so I wasted brain cells on that dumb show. After that was over, he starts in on all this sweet talk. Like how when he'd told me earlier in the evening that I was the only one he fantasizes about that he truly meant it. That he'd never cheat on me. That I am his entire world. When I told him I knew all that, he said that he didn't tell me often enough, and he didn't want me to be insecure because he'd been in relationships before where he was the insecure one and didn't want to do that to me. He even said that he wants to know what I'm thinking all the time because he wants to know everything about me, that I'm his best friend in the world. When I told him he truly didn't want to know everything I thought about because he'd be mad if he did....because I think such crappy thoughts about myself so often... he told me he wouldn't be mad, and that he did want to know, so that he could help me think better of myself.

I'm thinking some of this comes from the fact that I got so into Twilight. And, once before I told him I'd like more romantical things. It was kinda weird though. I even cried a little. Shh don't tell anyone! Guess I need to get a fix off hot movie stars and fictional characters a little more often! lol

Sunday, November 23, 2008


K, so this picture, I found the other day and thought it was hilarious!! Who wouldn't laugh if you found this in your kitchen!! Reminds me of some of the antics of the cats that we had growing up.

I'm thinking that Sunday's may be the most depressing day of the week. It means that I have to rush around getting laundry done so that I can be at work on time the next morning. this point it is not something I look forward to. It must change, or I will be going back to PIC where I was perfectly happy.

Rachel and I went to see Twilight this afternoon! Oh My God!! Yummy!! I'm still cleaning up residule drool any time I start thinking of Edward/Robert!! ahhhh I think I need one.....or 10! Somebody please get me one for Christmas! I'll forever be in your debt if you do!!

Well, should get off here and get myself and Bryson ready for bed. I know I shall have some delicious dreams tonight!!! mmmmm.......

Friday, November 21, 2008


So, we got our 1/4 of beef today!! Yummy!! Fresh beef! Todd went out to his parents to bring in our meat. Then I had to try and figure out what to do for dinner. So, I'm looking through the cupboards going....what the hell am I going to make for dinner tonight?? Then it hit me....Spaghetti. Haven't had that in a while. So, I got to use some of the awesome new meat, and it was freaking good. I did have a brain fart while I was cooking though! I opened up my spice cupboard over the stove and totally blanked on what went into spaghetti sauce!! I'm a big dork. I'm standing there looking, and....Nothing. Took me a full minute to remember what to use. And, I have made spaghetti from scratch since I was about 10 years old!! Wow! Maybe I'm getting old-timers already! That's not a good thing. I have enough issues without adding that to the list lol.

So I think Rachel and I are going to go see Twilight on Sunday. We'll hit a matinee so that it's a bit cheaper and the hubbies can't get quite so 'nyah nyah nyah' about it! I'm totally stoked to see that movie. I know it'll be different from the book, because they always are, but I still think it'll be a good one. And anyway....Robert Pattinson is freaking HOT!!!! I want him for my Christmas present.
Well, think I'll get off here. My hubby is making fun of me for blogging. Asked me if I could be a bigger dork. Then he wanted to know who reads my blog. Like he needs to know. This is a journal for me. Arrghh! Men can be such poops!

Thursday, November 20, 2008


So, I'm back to floating today. I figure that by the end of today I will be at almost 38 hours for the week. Means I get out of here after about 2 hours tomorrow!! Yay! That really makes my day. At least I learned something new today: learned how to do a C-Spine x-ray. That's an interesting one to do. And the final result is pretty funky looking. We'll see if I can remember how to do it on the next one! Nice to see I'm not the only one who doesn't know how to do some of the x-rays! One of our RN's had to get help on an L-spine today. Took for freaking ever! Oh well..

So, I am going to add a little sum-sum to this while I wait for the last hour of my day to slowly tick by. I'm placed in a position where I don't want to be, and I really don't like it. I was put into this float thing, well pushed really, wasn't even sure it was something I wanted to do. Hell, I almost cried the day they told me I was given the position. And then, I did cry almost every day from then up until Monday when I officially became the float MA. Mostly, it's going into the unknown, since I can't follow the example of the last float or risk losing my job. They want to shake the position up and change it all around, so I have no clue what I'm doing from one second to the next, not something I deal well with. I like structure at work. I like knowing what I'm supposed to be doing at specific times of the day. Even PIC was more structured than float, and every day on PIC is different from the one before.

It also doesn't help that I'm being accused of not going into this with an open mind. That is not true. I may not have wanted this position, but I sure didn't come into it thinking: "I'm going to hate this job". That would be stupid. I came into it not knowing what to do, so I feel like a ship lost at sea with no rudder. No guidance. Something I am not entirely comfortable with. And if I have to hear: "you'll get out of this what you want", I may go completely off the deep end. I know I don't have far to go, but still. Give me a break. I can't even have a bad day without someone telling me that I'm not looking at the position with an open mind.

The other thing is that they are thinking about having me take on some of the responsibilities of the PMC nurses that the float has never had to do. IE: room 2 of their pt's so they can do paperwork. I did a 12 hour shift on PMC, without a float nurse, and did everything, plus my RX refill requests that I do as float, plus I cleared out some messages from all the PMC nurses. Not just my work, but the work of the nurse I covered for and a little extra paper/phone work. Now, if I did it without help, why do they need so much help. And, I know it's not all of them, it's a certain one or two. I don't mind helping them out when they need it, but I sure as shit do not want to be the office 'go-fer' or 'hey-will-ya'. I do not have it in my personality to do that for a long period of time.

Sounds like I'm not the only one fed up with work this week. The lab tech just told me his week hasn't gone much smoother than mine.

Here's hoping next week goes better....or I may quit life!

Working the Family Practice

Well the day is coming to an end, and it seems I have survived my first full day working family practice. I think I even made it through with all my hair! The day was insane. I'm so used to urgent care and this end is way different. Hopefully, I'll be back to my normal tomorrow. On the up side, I get to go home early on Friday! That means either a nap, or more time with Bryson. Which will I choose??? Knowing me and the guilt I'd feel if I left Bryson at daycare and took a nap, I'll be picking him up early. Oh well, guess we'll get to do some fun art project. I love the little bugger!

The hubby will be out of town all day Saturday. That let's me clean house without him sitting around watching TV or playing on the computer while I work. Believe me that pisses me off more than most anything else. I did finally get him to clean the bathroom for me last week though. But I had to ask, he didn't volunteer. Are all men that blind??? So he gets to go play paintball, while I'm stuck at home cleaning. How is that fair? Then he has the nerve to be upset when I spend time with my mom and don't invite him. What the hell?

I'm exited for Thanksgiving. A lot of family in town from my hubby's side. Good thing I like all the ones that'll be there!! And, that weekend I get my tattoo touched up. I totally love it, no regrets at all about getting it, or where I got it. On the foot, and it did not hurt nearly as bad as I thought it was going too. It seems that we will all be at my place for the tattooing this time, so that means I have some extra cleaning to do next week. Yay me. Cleaning is totally not my thing.

Well, that's about it for now. Tune in next time for more in the boring life of me.
