Dysfunctional is the New Norm …

I was going to try to leave it at that, but – a quick word of advice.  Regardless of how much you’ve scoured WebMD for bizarre diagnoses, please do not come into the ER seriously expecting your triage nurse to confirm your ‘suspicions’ regarding your loved one within the first 5 seconds of your arrival.  …

But HE Started It!

OH!!!  It is SOO DH’s fault … He sent a de-funk Craig’s List item that promised a new storage rack/work station in my COE-90 designated work area.  HE emailed the no-good listing to me.  Now I WANT one!  Shelves for my frits, upright storage for my glass, a place to tuck much-needed tools, AND a …

Crashed hard!

Now I know why I was feeling extra tired and cranky at work this weekend.  I’m fighting off some crummy URI virus that my coworkers are spreading around like candy.  So I power-slept yesterday for some 14+ hours.  DH said he checked on me once to make sure I was still breathing … Awww, he …

Spring Cleaning … Also known as: What to do when you are avoiding grown-up responsibilities (although, I DID get my nursing competencies done … and – hey,  I have 6 [count THEM … S-I-X !!!] more DAYS until taxes are DUE! … It’s called procrastination, people – EMBRACE IT!!!) … So … I can’t be …
