Days of Hell

I cannot believe what a day yesterday was. It should be listed in the Guinness World Book of Records under the category of Days Of Hell. The last time I felt this emotionally drained was when we thought my son had cancer. I'm thinking: Time to look around at my options.

Why can't it be about Caring For People...instead of the political bullshit and government regulations? Why can't it be about doing what is best for the patient...not what is best for the "Organization"? I am so tired of feeling cornered by rules and regulations that mean shit to someone who just needs help with their daily living...a little assist with their meds...a little helping hand to get a hot meal. I am tired of Doctors who bitch about being overworked then turn around and bitch about not getting their fair share...I'm tired of everyone who does not take responsibility for their own actions...I'm tired of feeling ambushed by other well meaning people who go to committees to complain instead of to the source...I'm tired of the pathetic creatures that seem to thrive in the world of medicine...what the hell.... isn�t it supposed to be about CARING FOR PEOPLE...what ever happened to that? What is going on? Since when did it begin to become ALL ABOUT MONEY? Something�s gotta give folks...things can't go this way...there is too much sadness and confusion...too much smugness and upheaval...

The bitch posse rides tonight! Our annual christmas shopping weekend starts in approx. 5 hours and will conclude sometime before Monday. We have had some wild and fun times on our sprees. The very first time we went there were 4 of us. We took my cousin Suz' Jimmy GMC up to Grand Island where we were going to be staying with ANOTHER of my cousins. I do not remember how many times we went out to shop then returned to the house to unload then went back to another store to "load up" again. A winter storm hit that night and we were snowed in...what a pity...however no amount of snow was going to stop us from shopping. Well needless to say when we packed up to go home...it was a disaster. We had so much crap packed into that Jimmy...we had to put the seat down in the back and 2 of us rode Indian style bent over with a 5 foot tall Santa wedged in between us all the way back home (2 1/2 hours) What a scene...thank goodness for the alcohol...naughty grin. That Santa was starting to look pretty good about 1 hour into the trip! hee hee hee

My mother-in-law has been visiting for a week. She lives about 8 hours away and we don't see her except about twice a year. I am so lucky to have married into a great family that I can get along with. My MIL seems to shock me everytime she visits though. Most times it's observations she makes while I'm at work...like the time she noticed one of my neighbors always had a "nooner"...grin...or the fact that one of my living room sheers was hanging upside down...and had been frankly since I bought them I guess. Anyway...this year it is the big TV scandel. I was taking her and my mother to another town to do some shopping and we were talking about shows on TV and different things when all of a sudden MIL pops up and says something about the Sunday Night Sex Show...! She said her and her walking buddies discovered this show...and was it a doozy. My MIL is a retired nurse and she said that SHE couldn't believe what she LEARNED while watching that show...grin....as a matter of fact she asks me...as I drive down the road a tad over the speed limit...did I know what a butt plug was??? Hee hee hee...I tell you....I never laughed so hard...my MIL was giggling my Mother was laughing...and then while I stumbled and mumbled and pushed the pedal to the floor praying that somehow we would be transported to the next town under magickal powers...she proceeds to enlighten me and my mother with the details of what a butt plug is! It was like I was there! grin Anyway...another shocker was...when we turned on the show....grin...of COURSE...we had to check it out...here was this Marian the librarian type woman in her...say 50's - 60's talking up a very large and very bright pink monster of a vibrator! She was very serious and it sounded like she knew the routine. Well that's my "shocker" story of the year. I can't wait until next year...I mean...really...can this be topped???

Fall & Blubber

I feel as if I'm preparing for hibernation. I am stocking up on wood and kindling and matches (my favorite thing is fire as many of you may know). I have all of my quilts out. The leaves are partly raked. My bulky sweatshirts and sweaters are now unpacked from their summer storage and are taking up space in my closet. But the main thing I've noticed is the amount of food I seem to need (ahem...want)...grin...I guess

my body is telling me I need to get my winter blubber packed on...as if my summer blubber needed any help. Wouldn't it be great if our careers allowed for a "bit O hibernation" during the winter time. That would be a dream come true. I can see it now...a winter storm brewing up...the woodstove well stocked and humming with heat...me tucked into a quilt with a book, hot chocolate, toast, and thte TV on just in case a movie might tempt me...sigh...a girl can dream can't she? Well anyway... I found this recipie for "mock blubber" and it somehow soothed me to see the ingredients...I mean...what could be sweeter? Why not give it a whirl...Mock Blubber

Ingredients:

Marshmallows (35 large), 1/3 cup milk, 2 cups heavy cream

double boiler

Directions:

Combine over hot (not boiling) water 35 marshmallows and milk. Stir until melted. Remove from heat and chill until slightly thickened, about one hour. Whip heavy cream until thick and creamy and gently fold into the marshmallow mixture. Pour into a large plastic bowl and freeze over night. Defrost in the refrigerator. Spoon into cups and serve the "blubber". (source unknown)

Candy is a bitch

I went to the dentist on Friday because I lost a crown...he said it had been in 7 years so it was probably due to come out anyway...huh?...I though those were supposed to last forever...anyway...1 filling (found quite by accident and most assuradly forming in the last month as I'd just had my 6 month checkup which strangly showed NOTHING in the way of a cavity) and several strange and bizarre twists of fate later...including the breakage of a dental machine...sort of a gun-like thing that shoots out a foul tasting and "mold type" substance used in the forming of a mold of the tooth, the training of a new person (who by the way proved to be very UNABLE to "suck" out the saliva mixed with my tooth fragments, pieces of my gums dislodged by the misfiring dental tool and whatever the hell else was floating around in my paralyzed mouth...with any ability whatsoever) anyway...after about 1 1/2 hours later I was home with the entire right side of my face including my ear numb and slightly nauseated from the pools of murky crap I swallowed...I had my temporary crown in and was scheduled for my "Permanant" Crown (ie...meaning about 7 years) to be glued in place in 2 weeks...so Saturday evening...right before the Nebraska game...at 5:55 in fact...the said temporary crown came off...I can tell you that a string of words came flying out of my mouth right after I spit the crown out that would have taken the hair off a Persian cat...I was PISSED!!! I was going to get the phone and make the dentist suffer...rant and rave and accuse and demand and make him really squirm...make him question his dental abilities...make him have a nightmare that it was his own poor shitty work that caused the problem. I was ready to be vile and bitchy and entirely cruel...and I would have too...if only I hadn't eaten that piece of caramel... Damn Halloween anyway...shit
