Paris' Pillow

Paris called me to let me know she got her birthday pkg. I sent her & she really loved the pillow I made her! One of the most rewarding feelings in the world is to make something by hand for somebody u love dearly & them telling u they love it! I'm so glad I got into crafting!

My Birthday

Yesterday was my 43rd birthday. Bill & I started off the day by having breakfast at IHOP at midnight. I spent the rest of the day just relaxing. We had supper at Chili's. I ordered the Parmesan crusted steak I've been seeing on the commercials on tv. It was delicious! Then Bill took me to GiGi's to get a cupcake & to Crave for yogurt. He spoiled me (as always!).

Last Day at Work Before Vacation

This was my last day at work before my vacation week. I got to work this morning & there was a cake in the break room that April (one of the nurses) made for me! She is so sweet!

Rather Be Dead

Today was one of those very hectic days at work...the type of day where I was thinking I'd rather just die than to keep having to work at that job. They were discharging people one after the other & 2 people had to be sent to help me just to be able to get my patient rooms done on time. Eliza asked me to work Sunday but I'm not 100% recovered from the flu yet & I need this weekend to finish recovering. But after a day like I had today I wouldn't want to work on one of my off days anyway.

I've been in bed all week sick with the flu. I went back to work today. I still don't feel well but I feel a lot better than I have been.

Stressful Day

I woke up this morning from a dream about Bill not wanting to be with me anymore. Woke up already stressed & that was just the beginning of a totally stressful day. I didn't leave the house until 6:35 & I was stressing about the time the entire drive to work. I did manage to get there on time though. My work day started with 2 discharges before I even started my patient rooms, which put me behind on my patient rooms. Mr. Danny sent Kayla to help me. She got 2 rooms done before Mr. Danny came to send her to 3 west because he had just realized there wasn't a housekeeper on 3 west. So I was on my own again, behind on my patient rooms & expecting 2 more discharges. Fortunately, those last 2 discharges weren't discharged on my shift so I was able to get all of my patient rms. done in time. About 1:30 though, the stress had gotten to me & I started feeling, dizzy, light-headed, nauseated & having trouble breathing. I mentioned this to April & she sat me down in the break room & took my blood pressure & heart rate, which were both high. She wanted to take me to the e.r. but I convinced her not to; told her I just needed to sit down a little while & I would be ok. I did feel better after sitting down for a little while but the dizzy spells kept coming & going the rest of the day.

Annual Evaluation

I got my annual evaluation today. I got "Exceeds Standards" in everything except "Helping Others", and I got "Role Model" in that one, which I've heard Denise say is almost impossible to get!

National Championship

Burning Eye

Got up this morning & got dressed for church but my eye was burning real bad & while I was driving I realized it was burning so bad that I couldn't hardly see to drive so I turned around & came back home. Thank God I made it safely.

I put some eye drops in my eyes. It still burns but not nearly as bad & the redness & wateryness has gone away.

Lucy & Kids at IHOP

Wow! Until this morning, the only things repinned from my Pinterest boards were things I repinned from others. I checked my e- mail this morning & 1 of my scrapbook layouts had been repinned. It was the Bama Football Fan Day layout & somebody had repinned it onto a board titled Alabama Football!

Met up with Lucy & the kids at IHOP. It was great getting to see them although it was for a briefer time than we usually do when they come home to visit.

National Spaghetti Day

Very hectic day at work! On the brighter side, it was National Spaghetti Day & I had spaghetti for lunch. After work I had a real bad headache. Didn't feel like doing laundry but I went ahead & did it so I wouldn't have to worry about it this weekend. When I finished laundry Bill was ready for me to pick him up from work. We went to Vaughn Rd. to get a drink with that really good ice in it. It turns out they sell bags of the ice so we bought a bag. I also got a cupcake from GiGi's while we were over there! We're home now. My head still hurts real bad. Lucy's in town & I'll be seeing her tomorrow. I know she wants some Rice Krispy treats but I really don't feel like making them tonight. I hope she understands. I'm really excited to see her tomorrow!
