So I went to work - it was supposed to be stormy tonight and I was so excited because I LOVE storms and rainy weather and it's just been too nice lately - OMG that sounded so stupid! Well ... anyway, I took that migraine pill I was telling you about and by the time I got to work I was so fatigued from the side effects but the headache was still there, swirling all around my skull like rings around Saturn - so I took some Advil and -- IT WENT AWAY!!!!! Good grief! If I'd have gone the Advil route first I wouldn't have been tired and eating everything in sight. One of our patients makes us this cinnamon bread and doggone it if it isn't so damned good that I want to stuff all of it in my face!!!!!! So I stopped by the store on the way in and got some fruit because I figured that was my best defense against eating all day long and yeah I ate the fruit and anything else that was edible and not nailed down ... I'm going to blame it on the fact that I haven't been drinking water like I was the week of my strep adventure and then the week after. I wish I could drink water all day long but *grumble grumble* I just don't like the taste of it. Oh don't give me that look it DOES have a taste - or rather lack of a taste maybe. Maybe that's why I hate it, it has no taste and I won't drink all those flavored waters because I'm not fond of having fruit flavor in my mouth all day long -- the flavor of Diet Pepsi now THAT'S a good flavor to wash your palate with. YUM!!!!! Okay so I still haven't gotten on the blasted treadmill yet. Don't worry I will. I should be on there right now but here I sit ... letting my fanny spread just a little bit more while I write all this to you. :::sigh::: Can I tell you how wonderful it is to come home to this house and not the other? It's fab.

So tomorrow is another long day at work for me. The problem is that the regular nurse who works the evening shift is off because she had her shoulder operated on. The other nurse, the evil nurse Laura is still there but the dummy went and had carpal tunnel surgery on her left hand last weekend so she can't even take a proper blood pressure or do a throat culture, test urine, nothing! In addition to that she doesn't want to work the evenings anyway so she tells Jessi to stay late and room the patients and that means I stay late and answer the phones and do the billing. Oh! But we can't go over 40 hours or there will be hell to pay. What a twit. So ... I'm looking forward to a 3 day weekend.

Got big plans for the 4th? Be safe whatever you do. Do you know a sparkler burns at like 1000 degrees? Just take care!
