The aftermath of the (near) riot
Monday, June 26, 2017      5 comments

We had a near-riot at dinner last night. They served us what they called "taco salad." It turned out to be a VERY small scoop of cold, greasy hamburger and beans with a little taco seasoning and a few shreds of limp lettuce stuffed into a flour ... Read more

And of course, roomie is complaining that she's cold. The CNA got her a blanket, which solved the problem at least for the minute. Sacha is coming to visit me and bringing lunch today (Yay! No hospital food!). She's also printed out the pat... Read more

The CNA who worked the overnight shift complains constantly. Her ex, her kids, her job, the traffic, you name it. Most of the time I just nod sympathetically and say nothing, but this morning she took it to a whole new level when she pulled up h... Read more

Yesterday I blew a gasket but good. I've been begging for four months to get the previous style of bed back, and to get a wheelchair that fits (they used to have one but nobody can find it). For all that time I kept hearing that they didn't have... Read more

...but it's been summer here for weeks. I think we went straight from winter to summer and skipped spring. One of the occupational therapists here told me yesterday that she has A LOT of yarn, in all kinds of fibers and colors, that she has... Read more

Holy Hannah, it's hot here! We went straight from winter to summer with no stop for spring in between. But of course, it's time to do the holiday knitting. Luckily they're all small and lightweight. I'm knitting a bright green scarf for a f... Read more

Today is the day to honor fathers everywhere. Tell me how I'm supposed to honor the man who beat me bloody every chance he got. Who constantly called me stupid, ugly and worthless. Who cracked sexual jokes about me to his buddies. Who even ... Read more

I'm SO glad I'm knitting a narrow, light scarf right now. It's so hot and humid here that anything larger and/or heavier would probably melt me. I've been awake since 3:30 this morning. My roommate needed the commode and she isn't exactly q... Read more

Last night I had two bad dreams (and very little sleep). In the first I dreamed I was in Ireland (my dearest wish). I tearfully told someone there I didn't want to leave and she said, "well, you have to." The second was a variation of a nightmar... Read more

I've sold (well, practically given) my car to my best friend's teenage nephew (he cleaned it out -- he has more than earned it!). It's 23 years old and has a LOT of problems (I told him all about them). I haven't driven in more than a year and d... Read more

Last I dreamed that my fantasy sweetheart Ted Allen gave me a BIG hug. Oh, if only that could happen in real life! I know from seeing him so many times on TV that he's a serious hugger. (Yes, Spellcheck, "hugger" is a word!) I caved in to a... Read more

I left college many years ago and never finished my degree, which has always kind of hung over me. Yesterday I contacted a well-known online college about their degree programs. They say they're non-profit, so I was completely blown away when I ... Read more
