This is post #350. Huzzah. Nnnng.
Meh. That's all I have to say today: meh.
This morning's workout didn't go all that well, and then Chef Boy added insult to injury by guilting me about not wanting to go to the pool with his kids. Never mind that I was surrounded by pots, pans, half-empty jars of spices I've not used in a couple of years, and a few plastic and Pyrex containers I'd never seen before. I was cleaning out the kitchen cabinets, obviously, and not in any shape to trot into a swimsuit and go to an indoor pool.
The crazies have come out of the darkness at work. They're all lined up in the chairs in the family waiting room: from the person who wants gait training for her semi-vegetative daughter (who's been like that for, oh, about twelve years now) to the family member who insists that she *will* read her husband's chart *whenever* she likes, they're all there. If they're not there, they're getting underfoot, attempting to 'help' with things like moving people, changing dressings, or (I kid you not) inserting central lines.
Note to crazies: your daughter hasn't bothered to open her eyes except to pain for twelve years. Gait training is not a possibility. Also, you may *not* read the chart, it's against the rules. And finally, if a resident is putting in a central line or lumbar drain, or if I'm putting in a Foley catheter, the last thing we need is your grimy little paw in our way.
To those of you nice enough to send me links and do your own trackbacks: I promise, promise, *promise* I will get to blogrolling you either tomorrow afternoon or this weekend, whichever can provide more coffee and chocolate. I'm terrible about updating things, I know, and I plan to do a major update...sometime soon. Promise. Really.
Nnnng. Meh. Blar.
I think I'll cook today. That'll make me feel better, having a clean and well-organized kitchen with good and happy and well-cooked food in the fridge.
But first I'm going to go chew my cuticles and say "meh" some more.
