So busy and yet not too busy all at the same time.
Work has been crazy lately. The Florida Snowbirds are back in almost full force. And the Nursing students are also out in full force. I am not a real big fan of either. But I try to love both as one set it the future, and the other set is paying my paycheck. I would like to have a Vacation Vacation where I actually use Paid Time Off. We work only 3 days weekly so we often will do something like work sun-mon-tues and then have the next 8 days off and work the last three days of the week. I actually just want a vacation though.
THe Orlando Magic have played some of the worst basketball I have seen in a while….They Lost to the Toronto Raptors. Nothing wrong with Toronto, but the Raptors are not really a “sleeper team” that is about to emerge, they just aren’t a good team. They are 3-9 this season. The Magic sort of “phoned it in” on that game while the Raptors obviously had the game of the year…. Then they Lost again and finally started to show some solidarity and team playing to pull out a win. They came very close to losing again against the NJ Nets, a team they had trounced earlier this year. What’s up with them? There is some lack of communication between some of the players, and I think they really took it easy for a few games thinking no one could beat them. This has now been proven wrong. I don’t forsee a championship season if the Magic continue to have so many turnovers and problems with fouling.
My Doctor did put me on Cholesterol lowering medication… It’s crazy! I feel soooo old. I am taking Welchol, which is an odd medication, one has to take 6 large pills daily. Luckily I find I tolerate them better than I thought I would. So I am now taking it, and hoping it tames the lipids.
Running. I’ve had an OK week. I worked the first two days, so Wednesday I went out to run 14. I ended up running 7. The 7 was fine as there is a 7 on my plan for the week, as well as 2 4’s and a 14. Today I got all excited and pumped to run the 14. After running 7 I found it difficult, so I bumped back to 4, which was a tough run, but a good one. I wanted to do the 14 so it would not be hanging over my head so much…it’s still hanging over my head…ahhh well. After a day of rest- ie A working day- I should be better prepared.
Teulu….has had some issues this week. I fed him a Pedigree Jumbone. He has explosive Diarrhea for 2 days straight. So he has been bathed, the tile floor has been mopped, the carpet has started to be shampooed. And he has had most of the back of his “feathers” chopped unceremoniously off. There was so much of the liquid poo embedded in all that fur that I decided when bathing him, to cut it off. I am no groomer, so it isn’t exactly even on either side. He looks a bit silly, but he is clean!!! He stopped the explosions last night, but then vomited this morning…soooo…..I’m still watching him carefully. He is otherwise cheerful, so…I am assuming that I shall never again give a Jum-Bone to him!
SO that is it. Mostly I am worried now about the 14. I have never run 14 in a row. I can not wait to get it over with….
and those are my updates….
