Good Morning, Loungettes!Happy Saturday!Switching between rain and snow here, so it's wet and crunchy underfoot.Wish it were warmer, but that will come.Gonna be a big tick year, though, I've found a couple on Sadie already this season.Time to mix up some repellant and start using it on her.
Cammy--I love teaching, was an Instructor in a nursing program for 4 years and loved it, except for the cut in pay at the time.There are lots and lots of options out there, so I can completely control my work time now, and am really looking forward to it.Not planning a lot of stuff right now, but beginning to think about what kinds of things to plan in a month or so.
Jazzy--Collaboration does seem to have it's drawbacks, from what you describe.Sounds like you made a good call to go by phone rather than in person.I thinkyou are right, the changes are making a statement.I'm semi-retiring, another nurse is retiring, a third full time nurse has cut back to part time since I've been out.I hope someone is paying attention to all this.I really would like a chance to really explain the workload issues to someone above the Clinical Manager level.So, Jazzy has a person of interest in her life, maybe?Good for you!Hope the timing is right this time around, for a least a few dates.
Goldie--too true that too many employees do not care about the business they are working for.They should, they can make a huge difference, if only they realized that.The changes coming are VERY good, and I am very much looking forward to them.
Jazzy--you are right, some people do have a very self-centered view of the world, and that doesn't change as they age. I hope you see and get to talk with some family soon.And keep those boundaries up!
Chi--Did the coffee grounds work to get the fish oil smell off your fingers?Some of that stuff can really smell! Sounds like the vet knows her business, but being expensive doesn't help things. I've heard of adding supplements to pet's food, I wonder if you could do that for Happy?Oh, I see, you've already thought of that.If the point is to get the stuff INSIDE Happy, either approach should work, I would think.
Mema--I'll get a chance to talk to the Director eventually, I was just hoping to do it the other day. But he'll get the message anyway.Will let you all know what the Pulm doc says, should be interesting.I suspect he will become a new regular provider in my life.But if it keeps the asthma under control, I'll take another "ologist."Elderflower is bushy plant with very nice smelling blossoms that has been used for herbal medicine for ages. Elderflower syrup was one of the ingredients in the drink that I liked so much in the Champagne Bar on the Disney Cruise.I've got a bottle of the syrup in my fridge.It's often made into a cordial historically used for medicinal purposes.And I'm with you, shouldn't that number be an even one?Doesn't it take 2 people to make a marriage?
Chi--You make me wonder if all Omega 3 fatty acids smell like fish, too!I still like plain old Lard, like Crisco, for seasoning the cast iron.
Dara--So happy to hear the headaches may be easing up!Whatever it is that is working, I hope you can keep it up and it keeps working.Living with pain is not easy, and I will keep praying that your headache pain goes away completely.
It's all about ME! That's going to be my new mantra!!!!!!!
Princess Leia of Maine's DOTD:
1 ounce white elderflower syrup or St-Germain elderflower liqueur
½ ounce raspberry vodka
3 to 3 ounces brut champagne
2 fresh or frozen raspberries for garnish
Add the elderflower syrup and raspberry vodka to the champagne flute. Top off with the champagne. Garnish with the raspberries.
Respect your elderflowers.
