And the beat goes on. Crazy ( I really shouldn't term her in such a manner, but I don't have any other description that really fits) is back and sending the third nurse and me an alert everytime she makes a call. We generally have 50-100 alerts (notes posted on our computers asking us to call, fax, see, or contact somehow patients, labs, pharmacies, etc)posted on our screens...so it seems for her to add more to it is just weird...she gets the same type of alerts....whatever. If it makes her feel more in control to notify us that she is making calls, etc...so be it. No clue as to what the family emergency was ...she has a son in his early 20's who has literally wrecked every car he's ever driven, lost several jobs and been kicked out of colleges 3 times...so we assume that it might have something to do with him. Hmmm
Got home last night and hit the yard. I lost a huge tree several months ago that fell on top of bushes and other trees (remember I'm surrounded by woods, so if a tree falls toward the field and yard it just blocks mowing and gets in the way)and I worked on clearing the area last night. we hauled about 7 huge wheelbarrows to the burn pile and pulled what we could up. I can get the mower around the area now. After a couple of hours of that nonsence, I went to the old brick pile and dug some more. I'm finding too many to just leave it in the side of the woods so it's time to move it up to my construction piles and keep it neat. I have natural rock, granite pieces, bricks, gravel, and rubble up there now...so I just keep salvaging and hopefully use it someday. I've been able to dig out over 100 whole bricks and expect to start digging the trench for the next walk before cold weather sets in. I then did some weeding to continue preparing for the Fall mulching. I was too tired to do thread work last night so I just went on to bed after I cleaned up.
Honey told me that an applicant for the pastor's position is being entertained by the elders and their wives tonight and asked me to go. I won't be able to get anything done ...but I want to support him. we had a bicker last night. His youngest DD wants to have a 'family get together the last Sun of this month...I'm scheduled to speak at a church the same night and told him I wouldn't be there. He's not happy, but I made it clear...by repeating her statements...that I would not be interfering in the family meetings anymore. they order pizza and sit at a table and chit chat for a couple of hours and then go home. I'm the 5th wheel. I would rather not be that kind of stress ...so I'm declining. He's hurt and feels that I ought to just shrug it off. when he stands up for me and stops treating me like a private nurse or entertainer, then we will come to an understanding.
we have meetings all afternoon in the clinic today. I brought knitting. Enough said.
Be blessed all. Keep Sparkin'!!

I need to start a drama/soap opera and maybe call it ' The clinic' . Crazy nurse is at it again. I've already had 2 people come into my office asking what's up and I honestly have no clue as to what the lady is doing. One walked into the public office area to pull supplies and hears crazy giving a run down on the location for every nurse in the building. She is barely speaking to any of us, very subdued and professional in her approach and almost hush hush secretive about being on the phone. Now understand that the way the clinic is set up and how we 3 triage nurses are spaced, we can literally sit on opposite sides of the building and still hear what, where, when, who and all the contents of any phone conversation we're having. Who cares...it's not secrets. We leave our offices to fax, to see patients, to attend meetings, to restock our educational materials and have 3 breaks daily to just move around. So...whatever she is reporting is an odd event. we have an interoffice link that gives us immediete access to each other for messages and info. We also have interoffice phone lines. She uses these all the time...until today...and she has made visits to each of our doors knocked (my door's always open) and said "I wasn't sure you were in here...just wanted to ...and then says whatever. We have a new clinic nurse who just came in and asked "am I supposed to give routine reports on what I'm doing or where I am?? Nope...You're on your own. honor system. Just come to work and do your job and get on with it. So, we are now expecting some sort of an interaction coming. puts us on edge and the nurses keep asking me what they're being monitored for. Crazy was upset when I was asked to pull the staff files and fax our education info in to the main office. I'm not charge for the month and it's not on my responsibility list...who cares...I was asked, I did it and now we're recorded for being complete. Can't wait to see what the next event...now pending...will bring. Meanwhile, I just want to focus on the garden. I'll work on getting the rest of the limb out of the way tonight. I'll have to work in the shade anyway since the temp will be around 105. I'm collecting newspapers to use as mulch bases so that I can save the expensive stuff for the larger areas. Still lots of eroded spaces to fill and plenty of chores to finish. Next year the annuals will be added as well as lots of eye candy.
Be blessed all and what ever comes your way, remember that you and God are the only important players when it's all said and done. Keep it real with Him and keep Sparkin'!!

Full day. Church ...then a dry run to make sure we knew how to get to the outpatient clinic..and then out to eat with Honey and sister. I shopped just a minute and then after dropping sister off, went to Honey's for a nap in the chair by his lounger. does it sound really dumb that I look forward to sitting by an old man, hold his hand, while we snore for an hour or two on Sunday afternoon??? Of course it does. But he's my best friend and for 11 years I have learned more every day about unconditional love. God is good.
Still working with the afghans. Coming along nicely.
Be blessed all and just keep Sparkin'
