A Word to the Moon

Monday, you made your advancing fullness known. You gave me difficult and petulant colleagues to deal with, drug counts that were off and a missing laptop charger. None of that was helpful.

Tuesday, now shining brightly and fully in the night sky, you gave me lingering drug count issues to resolve from the night before, two starts of care that were 40 miles apart, one of which took 3 full hours, and people demanding minor care in the middle of the night. Things that should have been done on the day shift. Then, to show me you weren't finished messing with my head, during the middle of all of the that, you sent a call to my phone that a hospice nurse can't ignore and everything else had to go on a back burner. Of course, that required a visit that was 35 miles away. To top it all off, you've messed with the delivery of my appliances. What should have come on Tuesday, will not be here until Thursday. Maybe. I'm all moved in and ready for the holiday--except I have no fridge, no dishwasher, no range and no washer and dryer. Incidentally, as if you care, I am running out of clean panties.

I have only one question...

Are you about done?

I see you have priorities...that's good! Rotten that your appliances haven't come. I hope they arrive in time for the party.

And the camera cord. I'm still dying to see the new digs. I imagine the moon is as much a problem for you as it was for me as a teacher. Full moon = crazy kiddies.

Dang Rudee - that is a lot to handle.

I hope the appliances get there too - what exactly is the hold up? Don't they know it is Easter?

The full moon has been reeking havoc on our Financial Aid stuff the Squirrel and I am about ready to scream [No, SHE doesn't have to register for the draft and NO, SAHM means SAHM - NO, I have no work history for the last two years, 'kay? Kay!]

That darn moon can be really nasty sometimes. I hope things improve and you get your appliances before Easter...ciao

Yep Rudee, the moon has showed her other side to you at the moment! I am sorry to hear about your strife, lets hope the moon turns the tide well for you soon!

You're going to have to handwash your unmentionables and hang them around the house for the delivery people to see.

The moon and the warm weather bring about weirdness and back luck sometimes. Hope things get better for you real soon!

Michaela said...

Hi Babe, swing by your local store and buy: 10 microwave dinners, and 10 pairs of panties. Ignore all werewolves. Hope your gadgets arrive soon!!!

I hate days/weeks/lives like that!

Rudee said...

I thought you'd all like an update. Today has been better than yesterday, but-dot-dot-dot

I've yet to get my automated phone call confirming delivery time for tomorrow.

And...

It's April Fool's Day tomorrow! Am I an idiot to agree to delivery on such a day? I must be.

MAW--My husband found the work laptop charger, God love him, but the camera cord is MIA. I think I'll go to Best Buy.

I hope to heaven it is nearly done. The full moon can't last many more days.

Full moon stuff is interesting but it does wane.
We get the silly season up north here when it gets so hot and humid before the wet season - everyone has had enough of it.

Jane said...

Oh dear. You sound like I feel. Sometimes life just throws curve balls at you one after another. I just got hit by my third thing in a week and am taking comfort in the fact that I'm getting all the crap out of the way in one go!
Hope the appliances arrive today and you get some peace over Easter.
