8 months...wow...where has the time passed??????????

I have lost two wonderful 4 legged friends, and a young man who had so much to live for and now has gone to watch over the rest of us here.

Dad gets weaker...had his hip replaced...2 ER trips and I swear ten years off of my Mom's life. He looks more frail to me, and yet I know there is a fight in him yet...give a damn Popsy-Boy...

Things at home maintain...it is my fervent prayer things begin to look better for all who inhabit my home. All of us need and deserve a break...life goes on, now in an upward climb...

The brightest note in my personal life is that I am going to aromatherapy classes. My desire is to begin to incorporate this into my life as I get older and begin to slowly wean myself from the rigors of the OR...hopefully in the next 12-18 months I will be working at a different hospital, or in a different situation here. I have a possible opportunity to work as a resident at the care center doing my aromatherapy and continue to learn more about the effects of the oils on different disease processes and the effect on the people I treat. It would be a little easier on the body that the OR I work at now. And yet...I still don't see me retiring yet. I guess I enjoy the OR too much to give up totally.

Rev and I got our Christmas presents early this year. I finally saw a puppy to replace our old friends. It is also a new experience as this is the first time in my life that I have a puppy that is mine. Not L & B's or Rev's. Mine...we have two so that they can keep each other company and Rev has his own. They are sisters and a real hoot. They are enjoyable and I have already noticed how they are starting to grow even though they have been with us for a week.

Enough rambling...back to work...will try not to go so long between entries, although I think I am the only one who looks at it.

Find Your Sun Sign Profile
Virgo

Analytical Virgo, as the sixth sign of the zodiac, you represent purity, perfection, and practicality. Virgos put things in order to unify the world.

Mercury, the planet of mental and intellectual principles, and ruler of Virgo, makes you a methodical and organized worker who brings an analytical, systematic approach to all facets of life. You project a serious image overall, one only strengthened by your problem-solving skills and fastidious refinement.

Yours is the second of the earth signs, which makes you a dependable, responsible individual. You are reserved and modest in your behavior, and discriminating in your choices. You connect strongly to Mother Earth, and are therefore extremely health-conscious.

As a Virgo, you rule the sixth house of the horoscope, associated with the quality of work. Furthermore, this section of the chart shows how you analyze, deal with, and communicate details. The sixth house also involves health matters in general.

Virgo mode is mutable, which means that you are a levelheaded communicator who makes sure that whatever is being discussed is precise and accurate. Your role in a team is that of quality control.

Your strengths lie in your sharp mental powers, especially in scientific, or technical areas. You are well spoken and witty, and have a good understanding of other people's problems. Above all, you're a great problem solver, providing clear analysis to complex issues.

Your weaknesses are that you tend to be too much of a perfectionist, which can lead you to pedantic, petty, or schoolmasterly behavior. Your critical and sometimes negative outlook on life can be a downer for others, who may describe you as reserved, overly critical, and timid.

[ mood | nervous ]

well i have put things into motion for surgery. scared, nervous, excited, dread...

i will talk to the doctor on Monday and go over some things i need to square away in MY mind...need to get pre-approval from the insurance company...labs...blah blah blah.

my roomie asked me what would we do if i couldn't go back to work...i was so mad at him, but then, I realize that this is a possibility...i am older and may not bounce back like 10 years ago. but at this point in time, it isn't an option. i can't imagine not being better and NOT going back to work. i need to go back to work. nursing is my life and my love for surgery has always been there.

i guess i really do need to think more about the future and what i want to do with my life after the age of...

i am so afraid of marketing myself...what if someone doesn't like me or if what i do for them really didn't help. jeez la-weeze sharon. you are a good person and you do have skills...(maybe)...

decisions...decisions...decisions... [06 Sep 2004|08:45am]
[ mood | discontent ]

well here i am in the chasm of what to do next.

Surgery...nothing...surgery...nothing

Can i go back to work without having anything done and just work throught the discomfort. should i have surgery and find out that nothing was wrong and end up still miserable and possibly worse? will the surgery take care of the nagging discomfort so that i can get on with my life?

i promised myself i would wait until after labor day to make a decision. yes it is better, but no it is not comfortable. i have to realize i may have to live with this discomfort as it is not going to get better. i guess if that is the case, i would handle it. if surgery proves not to help and i am still a miserable witch, i will live with it.

i am going to talk to the doctor about the options. i was 10 years younger when i had my other knee done and am able to work and workout without problems.

may be i am looking for a sign. who knows. poor me.

i am going to be positive no matter what my decision is.

ta-ta...

[ mood | pleased ]

just read a comment made by benjammin to a friend...

can i be more proud?...it makes me think that maybe R and i did something right and got our children to think and be proactive in the world around them. i can't say that i was as involved and thinking about elections and the world around me as they seem to be.

as always...I am very proud of my children...

aaaaaauuurrrrghhhhhhh... [12 Aug 2004|08:29am]
[ mood | frustrated ]

I AM SO BORED!!!!!!!!!!

and hurt so much...and feeling a whole lot sorry for myself...
i know i wanted some time to step back and evaluate some thing in my life, but this is not what i had in mind...
between the pain and the medication, i sometimes can't think. not knowing what is happening with my knee and where the $$ is going to come from if i am laid up for any length of time isn't making things easier either. waiting for the results of the MRI and what happens next is not going over too well...why i can't just see an ortho doc instead of waiting for the insurance game of go here-get approval-go there-get approval-try this-get approval-YUK!

and i can't even sit in front of the computer too long or my knee just gives me grief...get up move and then try to sit again.

poor me...
omg...what clap-trap...talk about feeling sorry for myself...
jeesh!!!!! get a gun and just shoot myself? if i could just move without gimping around...sit without having to position my leg in a certain position...

well...i have had to stand up and move and try to sit again 3 times during this rendition of poor me.

go downstairs and veg in the recliner some more...

i am so out of here and such a wimp. believe it or not, i just want to go back to work...get with the diet again...start working out again...

does anyone have some cheese to go with this WHINE?

Virgo (August 23 to September 22) Yesterday - Your mind is crammed with philosophical musings. Self-examination is revelatory. Today - The truth is like a cough drop: Not always tasty, exactly, but good for you. Tomorrow - You have answers. You know your multiplication tables. You can think on your feet.

One is a Banner facility. Hmmmm. Wonder if it would work out for me? It might be good to leave Desert after all of these years and start fresh. Don't know about all of the call though. Who knows if I will still be in Gilbert in 3 years.

the weekend... [24 May 2004|10:11am]
[ mood | tired, happy, content... ]

whew!

brother-in-law and girlfriend here...good visit...good eats...good time...

children here to visit...it was grand...their uncle was glad to see them too...

went up to the arboretum in Superior...those two were like little kids...'now this is where the old entrance was'...'I think i may have planted some of these cacti here'...'is that the old truck we use to drive'...'where was Nate's house?'... and on and on...it was a good trip and good walk...and those two had a trip down memory lane as they both worked there when they were younger.

think my 'big brother' may be looking for a winter home here, but not sure...it would be so nice to have him near by so the 'boys' can visit more often.

need to make a trip to Nevada...should be fun, but may get worn out if Anne plans the time for us...

and now I need to go back to work so I can recover from the weekend...tee hee...

another day... [26 Apr 2004|10:35am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

Rev is better...thank heavens...wants to be back to work...tomorrow...

I have spent a very lazy weekend...got some of the things in the garage put away. The ones that took the most time to pack are also the ones taking the most time to put away. I have 3 more display cases to do and finish the things that are sitting out that I can't decide what to do with them. The living and dining rooms are nearing completion. Gave away three chairs, and now the living room looks a little bare. Will have to remedy that...but not right now...am working on the more 'public' rooms to complete and then will get to the rooms that are more hidden.

Have spent the last 3 nights enjoying family...grilled and ate dinner outside Saturday and Sunday...nice weather for it. Both children were with us last night. Had a Beach Boys concert and good food and great conversation. Who knew that children would finally enjoy being with parents.

Well, need to do something...more coffee is in order...have made doctor appointments for follow up with Rev...one less thing to do...

Back to work tonight. Must find a card to say thank you for all the people at work that took the time to inquire about Rev while he was in the hospital.

ta-ta

[ mood | relieved ]

Well my best buddy is home. Thank you God for watching over him and bringing him home safely for all of us.

I just now tried to thank all of Ben's friends for their thoughts and prayers. Saying 'thank you' sounded so trite and yet I wanted them to know how much we appreciated them.

People who don't even know Rev, and yet took the time to keep him and the family in their thoughts. They say the younger generation has no compassion and are selfish and self centered. I certainly haven't found that in either of our children's friends. Many of the people at work took time to ask how he was when they saw me in the halls at the hospital. Rev definitely had many pulling for his safe recovery.

I can only say thank you.

here...there...everywhere... [07 Apr 2004|11:01am]
[ mood | busy ]

have been back to work...(1 day)... and then to the Diamondbacks Opening Day...and tonight back to work again for 2 more nights...whew!

just found out that NO one from the counter top place notified the plumber and even thought the counters will be in tomorrow (Thursday), the plumber won't be here until Friday afternoon. Ergo...no kitchen sink until late Friday and no dishwasher and no RO water...(whine I guess).

And then the parts of the entertainment center will be replaced on Friday...(a little damage when inspected closer...oooph.

Oh well. I thrive on adversity!

I here some display cases begging to be put back together after then glass cleaning job. It will be nice to have my living room back in order.

Then the family room.

tata for now...
