Month: October 2011

Someday …

I may just write a book … full of bizarre ER stories – so insane, that no one will believe them … But in the meantime, I’ll just shake my head and marvel at what people do and say … I’m getting down to my final scheduled shifts at my current hospital … I know …

One step at a time …

We’re getting there … I was definitely overwhelmed for a minute or two, but it’s coming together …  While we didn’t get anything concrete done in the new studio today … DH did put my kitchen cupboards in place (almost) so that I could get the feel of it (BTW – the hole in the …

Admiral – there be WHALES here …

Woke up this morning to my Yorkie literally giving birth on my lap … GOOD MORNING!  I’ve no idea how she managed to get her fat-self up to my lap or why she decided that would be THE place to nest, but it sure woke me up in a hurry!  Seems I was off with …

Warning Will Robinson …

Overload! Overload!  I’m taking 5 minutes, that I don’t really have, but … hey, it’s all good! Spent yesterday at the sister hospital – my head is spinning just a bit regarding the differences … kind of like shopping at a new grocery store … you take for granted the fact that you know the …

Ahh … Oh-no! Really???

Finally finished with my mandatory nursing in-services …  Ahhhhhh …  Just in time to start orientation hours at my new job (the sister hospital) next week …  Apparently, I am destined to work 56-64 hours a week outside of the home. (WTH?!?)  Good thing I’m not busy … In the meantime … the new studio …

WWU … Nope

Not talking about this weekend, other than to say I got through it – and the countdown has begun … The last two mandatory in-services (at least for October … I HOPE!) are this week.  Can’t wait ‘til I’ve put my time in and they’re DONE! Studio news:  The flooring and cabinets should arrive this …

What you can do with 2 adults and 4 kids …

a little ingenuity and a lot of determination.  We had a small ‘adventure’ yesterday … DH and I decided it would be worth the time to pick up a free hot tub for the studio deck.  (I did mention that I’m a brat, right?)  Four hours later, we successfully moved the mountain!  But you have …

Not moving fast enough …

I’m now reminded of what makes me CRAZY about renovation/building … I want it (the new studio) done YESTERDAY!!  But, I’m trying to be patient … and frugal.  I keep reminding myself – ‘this is NOT a living space’ … no one will be photographing it for ‘House Beautiful’ … but – I’m a brat!  …

WWU … Can’t we all just get along???

I’m an ER nurse.  That makes me a member of the ‘human services’ field – much like law enforcement, DHS (Dept of Health/Human Services; Child Protective Services; Community Mental Health; social workers), EMS, central dispatch, etc.  As such, there are things (situations, issues, complaints, statements) that cannot be ignored … The “right” things are said, …

Productively non-productive …

It’s been that kind of a week.  Lots of running around, researching, cleaning, meetings, commiserating with friends … all good (and needed!), but … my warm glass studio is cold this week. It’s been a yo-yo kind of week emotionally too … from DARN SANE to a childhood friend [when we were kids, we’d meet …
