I am always amazed by the human race.  Today while at work I met a family who was so concerned about showing their "support" that they forgot to ask the patient what he wanted.  I was stressing out trying to get all of the details arranged and things set up...just when I had all of the pieces falling into place the patient, who is very short of breath and having a hard time talking, tells me he doesn't want to go home until in the morning.  This in itself was not a big deal, but I just know that in him making the decision to stay in the hospital tonight that he will most likely not make it out of the hospital, that he will probably die tonight in the hospital...again this is not something different in my job.  However the family was so mad.  I have such a hard time keeping my cool with families who tell me that the patients comfort is all they care about...then why get mad when a patient changes their mind or gets scared or try and talk them into something they don't want or out of something they do???  Most days I love my job...the fact that I get to help people die comfortably on their own terms, but somedays when it feels like the fates, families and "system" are against me I just want to come home, take a hot shower and go to bed...yeah RIGHT...that is SO not my life! keep from crying!

February Round-up

This is from the blog of

She asks the same list of questions each month.  This helps if you are a slacker like me and don't keep up with your scraping/journaling!

What books and/or magazines did I read this month?
  Well none...that is sad!  I spend all of my free time reading the blogs and messages boards on the internet!

What movies, television shows, plays, etc. did I watch this month?

Same as always I shows include House, Grey's Anatomy, Bones, Life Unexpected NCIS.  Most are reruns due to the fact that the winter olymicis has been on (yuck).  

If you count all of the "Josh" tv then Word World, Sid the Science Kid, Super Why, and Chungginton.

What fun things did I do with my family and/or friends?
 Let's see...We went to the super bowl party at th Hummingbird Club with Mike & Amber. Joann, Ashley and Grandpa Burt where there with us too!  

I spent several days hanging out with my friend Vickie at her house which I haven't done in a while.  Jason & I went to the Texas Roadhouse for dinner Valentines Day (in the snow!)  

Amber, Tammi (Amber's Mom) and I went shopping for invitation cardstock and out for a  late lunch at Los Cabos.  

What gifts did I give and/or receive?
I got and gave a Valentines card from Jason.  We didn't do presents, but no big deal...we don't really need anything at this point!  

I gave Josh a set of Mighty Machine dvd's which he loves...he is such a boy!  Dirt, trucks, airplanes, tractors and boats...can't ask for more!  

The boys both got cards with a dollar for their piggy banks from G-ma and Pops.

What special or unusual purchases did I make?
Bought a tiny attacher and a binderie...both still in my trunk...really need to finish cleaning up downstairs so I can play with all of my scrap crap!  

Bought Josh a new pair of tennis shoes, which he will not wear!

Got some new pillows after Josh threw up on his...just couldn't get the smell out!

What illnesses or health concerns did I have?
So glad that I can say that I FINALLY got over my cold or URI junk!  

The boys both had the URI junk too.  We took Andrew to the ER a few weeks ago for a fever of 103.  Thankfully they are both better.  I hate when my kids are sick, it makes me feel so out of control (for us control freaks it isn't a comfortable feeling!)

Josh and Jason both got puking sick last weekend.  Jason was SO sick he missed a day of work...which is only the second day of work he has missed since I have known him (fourteen years).  

What were my accomplishments this month?
I made it through the month without running away! LOL!  3 sick males in the house at one time?  Not what a girl would consider a good time.

I am down another 6 pounds, not great but, progress none the less...I am wearing pants that I haven't been able to get into since before Josh was born.  WOO HOO!

I have my circle journal done on time.

I have purged 3 boxes of stuff from my scrap crap and am ALMOST done with putting everything back together.  I still have quite a bit I want to change, but it is almost a workable space again!

What were my disappointments this month?
This is a hard one.  I actually have a coworker who had some major problems.  He kind of lost it. It has caused a lot of upheaval and change in an already tense work place.  I truly feel bad for the guy, it seems like he is very troubled.

I really was hoping to get my scrap area back together weeks ago, but with all of the sickness and stress at work I was just too exhausted to go down and face my mess!

How did I do on my goals for the month? (Or any current short or long term goals)
To be honest I didn't really make much head way on anything this month.  Kind of just kept my head above the water...which I was part of my commitment for the new more than just tread I guess I will try again in March and hope that I can make some progress!

Anything else noteworthy to include?
Always something...

Jason played and lost in the first round of Dartball play offs...shocking!  

Andrew can now hold his own bottle.

Andrew loves his exersaucer...the jumping up and down and spinning around and watching his little piece of the world go by!  

I am loving glimmer mist, margaritas and twix bars lately.  I am happily addicted to Ustream scrap shows and blog surfing.  I am going to go to work on my scrap crap...until next time!
