Sometimes you're the windshield


After the week I've had, I feel like hospice is killing me.

Ironic, isn't it?

After the patients I had all week I wish you'd come visit them. Oh, they're strong on the road to full recovery and waiting for their FLOOR BEDS!! That would wrong of me to get a hospice consult, wouldn't it??!! :>)
PS. word verification: exhales
How does it know...?

I know exactly what you mean. Next week HAS to be a better one.

Is there something afoot in the universe? Everyone's week seems to have been heavier and meaner than expected.

I love what Michaela said about your hobby. She just cracked me up.

"Id be worried if at home you were a lion tamer or something."

Rudee, I am sorry that you had a really bad week. It takes a special person to do what you do. I hope you are restored to new again because what would the world be with out compassionate nurses?


Mark Knoffler is a poet. His music strikes a chord in me.

On a different note. Does Leo bark very much? Our Carmen rarely barks and she is so soft spoken. Sissy is taking her to a different vet where she lives.

Great! Not that it's killing you but your post. Today I am a bug!

Hang in there, next week will be better.

May next week be a Louisville Slugger (you) week for you.

I've got Mary-Chapin Carpenter singing this - just a LITTLE different :)

Sorry you've had a rough week, but I had to LOL at Distracted - she is a hoot. Hope she made you laugh too.
