wake up call

Breakfast of Champions 

Lunch of Champions 
Protein Shake with Covefe. 

Falling asleep in 3…2…1…

Didn’t even wake up to pee. 

Tonight is Randy Rainbow’s Concert! 
Took the whole day off. 
But 0700 the phone rings. 
“Why did you say this and that 
About her and me?”
I don’t get involved in gossip. 
It’s nasty. Calm down. 
Pick your battles. 
Don’t show your ass. 
Take some free advice. 
Just work and go home. 
Don’t chit-chat. 
Give report and git!

down down down

Lovely arriving early to work. 
It is a small complaint,,
 but I was very possessive 
Of those 10 extra minutes sleep. 
Still, better than being late. 

Once you get used to something,
It’s easy enough to adjust. 

Yes. Except tomorrow is the 
Randy Rainbow concert. 

The hurricane in Florida 
Is stirring up some sunset dust. 

Who wants to help me make the bread?
Not I, said the cat. 
Who wants to help me clean up?
Not I, said the dog. (Etc)
Who wants to help me eat the bread? 
Me! Me! Me! I do, please. 

People like to be disruptive. 
They like to take things 
other people have built. 
I can’t abide with that. 
Things fade and dwindle on their own. 
Why push it, and rip things apart? 
All of 2020, 2021, and 2022
We couldn’t get a nurse to come. 
Now they want me to give up my hours. 
So they can have them. Just take them. 
I’m not even asking for the help. 
They just want this particular case
But they won’t do the hard work 
To keep it. Pity.

rats come out

No rain for us. 
But still. 

I’ve become an Olympic sleeper. 
First in my class. Lol. 

Been not wearing my watch on days off. 

Operation Desert Storm. 
So like 31 years ago. 32?

Never gets old 

So once October hits,
The nurses come out
To get Christmas money. 
They will fight you to take your shift. 
In summer, it’s hard to fill a shift. 
Now, they’ll bite your hand.

gossip ranks

Mondays in the chamber. 
The HyperBaric Chamber. 
I’ve been practicing my deep breathing as well. 

Poor baby. 
Wings all here and there. 
Plus he has a bum leg. 
He can not bear weight. 
I feel ya, Mr Crow! 

I dearly love sleep now. 
And it loves me. 
We need to be at peace. 

Hey I know! 
I’ll get up early and make a shake
For me to take! 
Just hope I don’t spill the ….
Never mind. 
Save this for the Blooper Reel. 

Went on to work with shake in hand. 
One scoop IsoPure. 
One scoop PB2
One scoop Instant Coffee. 
Even though I washed the bottle,
There still managed to be
A small price of heavy stock paper. 
Must’ve been hiding. 
Oh well. Drank it anyways. 
More for the Blooper Reel! 

Lots of conservatives 
All around the world right now. 

I guess they can’t arrest everyone. 
Or can they? 

I’m so glad. 
Or is it?

Two cat lap today!

So one good thing about 
Working with people who hate you,
Is there’s no gossip. 

Well… we have another nurse
Who is confrontational 
About things she can’t change. 
Like if a nurse is a few minutes late. 
Or if they said anything about anyone. 
She takes it personally. Internally. 

Or if a family member has a different opinion. 
I don’t miss the lack of gossip.
