That IS too hot for Christmas. Hope it cools back off for you. That same heat is heading up our way but we won't get above close to 60 and that will be for one day. I'll take it!

I think nursing in general makes you jaded. I am SO jaded and I wasn't sure if it was nursing or just my experiences with men and life that had done it to me, but maybe it really was primarily nursing. It sucks that you are too, but in a strange way, it helps me to hear you say it. I'm not alone! I think the more you care about being a good nurse, the more jaded you become. It's the ones who always have time to read the newspaper and maybe catch a few zz's on their breaks that seem to be able to be a nurse and keep on smiling through it all. I've never understood how they could manage that. I know I never could.

Wowser ! What a day ......... Had to stay over 40 minutes. ;/ I knew if I called the chiropractor today and said I would come in the morning before work that something would happen. So less sleep cause I have to get up early and drive in the opposite direction of work to go. But, lots of headaches again, so I know my neck needs it. My back is doing good

Hope you all had a good day. No lunch day for me. Had my homemade cereal/granola with almond milk on the way to work at 11 and then some greek yogurt around 4. That was it.

I heated up some salmon patties when I clocked out at 12:38 and ate them in the car on the way home. Boy, that scale better reward me tomorrow !

hope you all had a wonderful day and rest well tonight !

ttyl .... I'm hitting the hay.

I know ladies, Not much food yesterday but maybe it does a body good to shake it up ?

Would love to be heading out camping ! maybe soon

Couldn't go to sleep last night. Was still awake after 2:30 ~~ praying, trying to relax. But, God blessed me ~ I'm up early awake before 8 and feel sleepy but pretty good. No Headache either

scale dropped . Will see if it stays lol ! But, It sure was nice to see

Have a great day !

I'm sorry for your extended shift at work and crappy night's sleep. I hope the chiro gives you a good adjustment. I should look into whether my insurance covers those. My spine is seriously in need of a tweak or two. I hope your weight loss sticks!

Snap, crackle, pop is exactly what I need! I have to remember to look into it after the holidays. It would make a world of difference to me. My husband used to have me crack his back and he would do the same for me and I really miss that.

That was a very long day. I hope you got a good sleep after that. Have a lovely day, Laura. I am off to work soon. Sunny and mild! Rain moving in, though.

yesterday ( my anniversary ) was a total bust ~ well work was oK , until about 5pm... then NOT.

Nothing special, but I was "down" I guess. Ended up having to stay late again, co-worker called in for tonight , so I'm working nights with DH ~ I had taken today off to get house ready for company and do my grocery shopping ~~ but now that person had to cover for me at 12 so I can cover the night shift... oh well. I'm up and getting some stuff done.
Went to Walmart last night after work again...... practically the only person there at 1am !

Warm and muggy here... supposed to be possibility of tornados and heavy rain/storms today.. we'll see.

Just chilling, doing some laundry and boiling eggs for me for snacks and deviled eggs for Tues.
Planned to make more cookies and fudge, but doubt I get it done before work tonight.

I'll be back ....

Sorry you've had a crappy, blue night. Not good. Holiday blues or just situational? I get them both sometimes. Good thing that they do pass after a while. I hope this is just a short glitch for you. Maybe you need to hop in that RV when this week is done and go enjoy the fruits of your labor.

A little Shelby time might do it for you, too. I'm glad the scale is smiling on you today.

Hope today & tonight go well for you.
I get 'down' this time of year too... I think its all the expectations that society puts on you/that I feel I fail... always try to escape!
Awesome for you, that Walmart was almost deserted! Crazy in town today.

Getting ready for work now. I'm fine..... just didn't have a good one yesterday and I got down...

Not sure if co-worker will call in for tomorrow night, if he does I will work nights again tomorrow, if he comes to work, I'm taking off !

Didn't get a lot done today, but I''m still grateful I got some things done.

ttyl !!

That sucks that depending on if someone else calls in, you have to work a whole other shift. This hospital sounds so "rinky dink." Is it? Anyway, I really hope things get back to normal and you have a much better night.

I'm sorry you're having a crappy week. They happen! It's a roll of the dice every time you walk into that hospital. I hope you can rest well when you get home. Hang in there, kid.

Sorry for the work issues Laura! Pulling a double shift s**cks! But hospitals don't shut down - you are one of those public servant angels that make "regular" people safe, comfortable and well in their time of need. Thank You!

Laura, you need some time off, hon. You've been working like crazy lately and also busy with holiday shopping, decorating, cooking, etc. Can you take some time off and maybe celebrate your anniversary on a different day? On a happy note, so glad to hear that the scale is going down and rewarding your for your perfect eating! Yay!

!

Well, slept 4 hours and checked phone.....he hasn't called in.... so I'm off !!
I better be with only 4 hours sleep

60 and beautiful sunny day

Sorry I've been such a Debbie Downer last few days. Anniversary wasn't special, stress at work, etc.... hate it when i'm like that

Relaxing and taking my time having coffee, hot shower, making a big 'ol pot of chili .... supposed to get cold tonight

Dh's stepmom is supposed to be here tomorrow evening, but she is in North Texas and now has a cold ( she's 82 ).... she is waiting to see if there's ice on the roads and how she feels... hope she makes it ! The boys were excited she was coming They consider her their "Nanny" ~~ not DH's real Mom. For lots and lots of reasons I won't bore you with .....

We did the gift exchange this morning at work, Left the gift for the housekeeper there in DH's locker and he will give it to her tonight. got her a scarf,lotion from bath and body works and some homemade goodies and put them in a really pretty Christmas Box I just love her......

We stopped at grocery store this morning, hardly anyone there , and I got the last of the things I needed for Christmas eve and Christmas day. ! Done !

Hope you are all having a wonderful day !

Got to stay home.

But,

lol ! DS2 and fiance came over before DH left for work...... and stayed and stayed.....and ate and watched TV....then DS's 2 friends showed up and came in ......( you know where this is going ) and stayed and stayed and sat down and watched some TV...... oh my gosh !! It was after 9:30 when they all left

I had planned to get lots of stuff done tonight after chilling and watching some TV, but only got part of it done So glad I was off and can run my errands in the morning and then finish up before she gets here.

it's just so funny that when they come over it just kinda changes all my plans. I feel rude if I do chores the whole time they are here. Weird huh ?

47 out now.... fireplace on and hope to go to bed soon. Night all !
