I Am a Bad Nurse

My poor husband is sick; he never gets sick. And when he gets sick he becomes the most pitiful, helpless creature on the planet. I would think he has the stomach flu because he said he was nauseous and had fever and chills but now I am wondering since there has been no “worshipping of the porcelain god.” Like I said above, I am a bad nurse. Last night I was worn-out and his “pitifullness” was wearing on my nerves. He kept asking me weird questions and I was pretty snappy with him. He also tossed and turned all night and that along with the strange dreams and the cat jumping on my head kept waking me up. Needless to say I didn’t feel particularly cheery when I woke up this morning. I decided to not let the rotten mood get to me and was extra nice to him before leaving for work. I brought him the thermometer so he could take his temperature (still over 100) and brought him juice and Tylenol. I also made sure he was comfortable, put things like his glasses, remote, and phone next to the bed so he wouldn’t have to get up much. I have tried to not disturb him by calling so he can get some rest. I will probably leave work a little early so I can go make sure he is ok and see what he feels up to eating tonight. Hopefully he will forgive me for being so “reowy” last night and won’t treat me too badly whenever I catch whatever he has.

R & R

This weekend marked the end of the hectic pace that has been with us since before Christmas. Other than minor things Stuart and Ann’s wedding was a success. We are happy to say that we found her car keys. 🙂 I look forward to weekends of not having to be any where or do anything for a while. Since I have been running so hard lately I decided to stop pushing myself so much and took the day off of work yesterday. This is such a rarity for me, I think I have called in sick 4 times since I started working here almost 3 years ago. It was nice to not have to be anywhere or get stressed out by everyone else’s usual panic. So I spent the day resting and working on a project I need to complete before Stuart and Ann move to Arizona on March 31.

A Shout Out to Anthony

Ok, Ok, I know that I don’t update enough as someone was so kind to remind me. Things have been pretty crazy lately and I know that isn’t an excuse so here you go Anthony! I would like to add, how am I supposed to know that you are missing my posts if you don’t leave comments? 😉 He told me he didn’t realize he could post comments until recently and said, “I know, I’m a man.” Just like a man.I’m not presumptuous enough to think that anyone really reads this stuff. I’m sure I have a few readers but I guess it never really mattered to me, this was always just a fun way to put some ideas out there. And someone suggested that writing more frequently, writing anything really, like I used to might soothe my weary soul.I used to write volumes and volumes, the ideas flowed out like water. I used to stay up late into the night writing, even if I had to be up early for school the next day. My greatest dream as a child was to be a spinner of tales and publish some of my work. Unfortunately, I have always been overly-critical and so everything that was previously written by yours truly is in a landfill somewhere. Of course part of me now wishes I wouldn’t have been so hasty, I’m sure most of it would be quite amusing now to my venerable wisdom. Shhhhh, don’t tell Brandon, he would smirk at me for years to come and say, “I told you so.” I know Brandon, you are right, oh wise king of the pack-rats.

So I used to write a great deal more than I do now, what happened you ask? I fell out of the habit in college when I picked a challenging and time consuming major that didn’t allow much free time at all, so the writing was always put on the back burner. And now being a college graduate of X years, I have gobs of free time, right? Well not so much, I never knew life could be so busy and I don’t feel like I do all that much. But I do find time to unleash the soul and hopefully with time more interesting stuff will come out of me then just this blog. Stay Tuned!!!
