Funk, but workin’ on it …

Had my monthly DARN SANE meeting this morning … Arrrgh!  People are evil and sick!  I hate knowing this … Now, locked in my studio … I am determined to work through the mood-funk.  This means Adele is blasting on the stereo, my most inspiring photo slide show (art/project ideas) is playing on the screen …

Long day …

but ending it in my studio – so, you know – a GOOD day. Started in the early A.M., so that my curly hair could air dry, and I could TRY to look presentable (still haven’t figured out why I bother …???).  Anyway, had to go to a social function related to my SANE job.  …

Still recuperating … but eating helps (?)

I work nights.  I do this INTENTIONALLY, as I am –apparently– a vampire.  (I’d say the non-blood kind – but my patients [whose blood I take by-the-vials] would probably disagree …)  I am ALLERGIC to mornings.  So, my week has been messed up since I got a SANE call only minutes (about 120 of them) …

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 …

Evil Strikes Again … (WWU)

While I was trying to get through my weekend at work – doing good deeds, like starting IV’s on septic infants (SUCCESS!) – the dark side struck … Yep – the biological mother rose up from the depths of Hades to mess with me and mine again!  While I may be one sarcastic gal – …

Time flies …

I can’t believe it’s Thursday ALREADY … Where’d the week go? The good news – I finally have my chores done for the week – so tomorrow is ALL MINE!  (I even sound like a [2 year old] brat, don’t I??? Mine, mine, MINE! … Oh well – I’m okay with it! )  DH has …

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 …

Crummy – but working on it …

Had a first for my little rural county last night … 2 back-to-back SANE calls from unrelated assaults.  Our program provides treatment for rape victims 13 yrs old/older.  Both of my patients met criteria, but barely … OMG!  What is going on with my community!?!  This will require major therapy (shopping) for me … and I’ve …

And then there’s Monday … WWU

Gone is the contentment, bottled or otherwise … What a crummy weekend.  Volume wasn’t out of control, no ‘major’ patients (i.e. really sick) … but YUCK!  Drama, drama, drama … and a bit of it was mine.  I was shorter-fused than I should be with … people (we’ll leave it at that).  Then I got …

Studio and summer news …

Started playing with some new dichro pieces last night (ok – early this morning, as the insomnia has returned!) … managed to break a piece of glass very poorly, and am now sporting 3 band-aids on my left hand from where I was apparently trying to deglove myself a couple fingers at a time!  Not …
