Disillusioned, disappointed and depressed …
Had another first for my ‘lil rural county yesterday – 3 SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) cases in less than 24 hours. WTH?!? I believe I covered every service provided to ‘adults’ by our agency (… if I didn’t – I don’t even want to think about what scenario I missed)!
So bummed at the state of my community, I felt compelled to look up our population: 181K people living over 568 square miles of area. Sounds rural to me … What is all this ‘big city’ sickness doing in my podunk county???
Add to it some not-so-successful stamping fusing experiments and I’m feeling very uncreative/uninspired … I definitely had more success when the bottle was stamped after slumping … Lesson learned – the hard way. (Although, while not stamped, I do like the Red Stripe bottle – will have to bring home a few more.)
On an upside – our youngest (my BABY!) got his braces off today. No more ‘metal mouth’ in the family. Sweet! He gets a week full of all the popcorn he can handle before he goes back for his retainer …
And – I am in LOVE with my new Keurig Café Mocha flavored coffee! Like “hand-shaking, gut-clenching, caffeine overdose – and still want more” in love. It’s so yummy it has to be high-in-calorie/bad for you … but I don’t care. I wonder if I can buy it by-the-pallet??? 24 k-cups of this ‘coffee-crack’ simply is not enough!
I have 48 hours of free time to ‘fix myself’ before heading back to work … I can do this! Lately, I have been fascinated with the History channel show “Swamp People” … it’s about some folks in Louisiana who hunt alligators for a living. (You need to know – I have a very ‘girly’ fear of snakes, as well as a general dislike for swimming in non-pool bodies of water – with ‘critters’ brushing up on you that you can’t see … and I’m not really fond of boats …) For whatever reason, this show has me wantin’ to go gator-huntin’ … and it’s on tonight!!
We love Swamp People. I live in the area that some of it is fimed and know a few of the guys. It’s really not very realistic, but it is still very entertaining.
Ohh … how cool! Have you ever been ‘gator huntin’? 🙂
I agree about the level of (lack of) reality – but … I’m still addicted – and seriously considering (for the first time EVER) buying a TV show’s t-shirt! 🙂
