It's only 30 today and we got a little snow last night but it's sunny and most of it has already melted. So I like that.
Hubby was down in his back but is doing better. I'm glad because I am tired of doing some of his chores for him. LOL! It sounds mean but I have really more than enough work to deal with and he knows it and hates to heap more on me. We both suffer then.
My hubby is sick of work. He has no holidays or scheduled time off usually from January 2 until Memorial Day and no one there usually wants him to ever take any time off. He doesn't usually get sick of work this soon but he has challenges. He likes what he does but doesn't fit in with most of the people who work there. For one thing, does anyone want to work with a mentally ill felon? LOL. The owners appreciate the work he does which helps. I shouldn't say much probably because we don't want to give the impression that we feel that we are better than anyone else but it's hard to listen to really bad drivel, like the worst kind of prejudice day after day after day. I had to deal with the same people at my job so I know how he feels. Some of the stuff you hear is so horrible you just want to tell them to get f----- and never have to see them again. LOL.
My back/right hip/left knee are all giving me fits. I'm tired of feeling bad. I'm physically a mess and am not eating as well as I could nor getting in enough exercise, under the circumstances, but I'm still not in a bad place mentally. I'm hoping tomorrow I get up and my body feels good.
The chinchillas are hanging in there. Bun has decided to get up and start begging for treats at suppertime now and she glares at us and hubby doesn't think she should have to wait so I end up having to get up and feed her. The problem is she is picky and will turn her nose up and want something else. So I may have to dig up 4 or 5 things and she wants something not very good for her. She likes people crackers. Bad girl! Of course the rest of them want something too then and I get back to ice cold food.
I want to thank you so much for commenting on my recent BLOG that was featured here at Spark People. If in any way I have been able to inspire or motivate you, then I am most pleased. Since reaching my goal weight I have made it a goal to help as many others as I can with their goals to lose weight and get fit. For me, making new goals (challenges) is what keeps me accountable, maintaining and healthy. It feels awesome! Many thanks again for your kind words and interest in my BLOG.
The kerosene patient was really bad. The old codger was pretty tough though and stoic. The doctor was more shook up than the patient and could barely keep it together as he had to figure out what to do about it. Who you gonna call? LOL. When we got in the hallway the doctor was like OMG!!! This is challenging enough to deal with without having the patient set himself on fire afterwards. Not much you can say other than commiserate. Thank God for specialists because there were times that it took a group of really intelligent physicians to decide how to proceed and time is of the essence in matters like this.
Speaking of TMI, some people on sparkpeople amaze me. Sometimes I will see a blog where people are talking about the most intimate things. As a nurse I have heard it all but social forums are not the place to post about your potential venereal diseases and bowel habits. Good grief.
I hate when I have computer trouble. I hate the latest windows whatever too and am using my old vista computer.
OMG - the part about the toes is so gross! I have had ignorant patients tell me that they let their dog lick their wound and I had to tell them bad idea for them and the dog. We are a rural area and get some really uneducated people in the hospital. One farmer got his groin and genitals caught it some farm equipment and he poured kerosene on it to "cauterize it". OMG!! When the E.R. doctor came in he said, "What is that smell?????" I told him it was kerosene and he asked me if farm machinery used kerosene and I told him not that I knew of - that the man had poured it on himself after the accident. Unreal.
The last I talked to Ian he was tired but he is always tired as he always works a minimum of 48 hours a week. He has trouble finding employees as it is minimum wage and part time.
Sounds like a good schedule. I wouldn't worry about it. If they wanted something different they should have spoken up like you did.
