12: I worked Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. Four 3 - 11 shifts with my wacky bunch of old geezers and geezerettes. Many of them, the very demented ones, can wear a girl down. The same questions/complaints/demands; "Where's my daughter?", "I can't find my daughter.", "Call my daughter and tell her to get me out of here." - over and over and over again.
Sometimes I sneak off to the bedside of an alert and oriented resident, sit down, and have a normal chat.
12.1: Tuesday was my last day of work before my vacation. No work for 19 days. Yay me.
12.2: I made sure my favorite (they're not like children, I'm allowed to pick favorites) residents got a hug and a kiss and an I Love You before I left on Tuesday night; 19 days being long enough for those on the last leg of the journey to get sick and die.
12.3: I hope nobody dies while I'm gone. It bothers me to be a part of the show for so long and then miss the finale.
12.4: You totally just imagined a decrepit old person sitting up and doing jazz hands the moment before they croaked didn't you?
11: DaniG pointed me toward this website that is clearly a gift from the Universe to ME.
10: Owen and Bea playing Harry Potter wands with sticks yesterday. Owen wants to know a real spell.
Me: "Expecto Patronum!"
Owen: Takes aim at my heart with his stick and looks me in the eye; "Pecker Tronem!"
Bea: Takes aim with her stick: "Petunias!!"
9: Brought my car in for a much overdue inspection sticker and oil change. The thing has been paid off for two years and I haven't had to do any work on it. I expected it would need something. I expected something expensive.
I had no transmission fluid. NONE. The guy didn't know how I'd made it to the shop and begged me not to drive it until it was fixed. I agreed and was about to take him up on the offer of their shuttle to take me home as I didn't want his $100 rental. We got to the counter and the girl there told him;
"Just got the Prius back. She can have that."
8: Ever driven a hybrid? Push a button to start it. Sounds like a toaster. Actually, my toaster is louder.
8.1: My next car is gonna be a toaster.
7: After supper this evening. Kids watching TV. Me playing with phone. Drinking WATER.
Bea: "Where's your wine Mom?"
6: Is a stupid number. I got nothing.
5: Oh yeah, playing with my phone. I figured out how to blog from it. Yep. That 'test' post that nobody can see? From my phone. This could be fun.
4: 'Cause we're leaving for vacation on Sunday. Three couples, six kids ages 18 months to 7 years old; big house, amusement park, water park, unknown outdoor adventures.
3: Vacation sounds not very relaxing.
2: But drinking wine is. Poured a big glass two seconds after the kids went to bed.
2.1: You just gasped that I actually waited for the kids to be in bed didn't you?
1: Al's birthday is Sunday. He'll be 42. I'm going to re post a silly Al story. You get to pick. So. What'll it be? Boobs or Blow jobs? Leave your choice in the comments and the winner will be posted on Sunday.
