January 15

Okay, I know I just posted my very first post, but I have more to say now. I can't wait until I get home and can add pictures. I have lots of good pictures.....


I am currently at work, but it is not too busy of a day. (For more info, go to www.google.com and type in US nursing shortage). I had three patients this morning, discharged one, and got an admit. Not too shabby. A lot of times, we get 4 patients on the day shift, and things can get pretty busy. So, here I am on the internet in the breakroom, taking a break. I think I have some 1pm meds to give in a bit, so I will have to go soon.

When I get off work at 3:30, Ethan is picking me up and we are driving down to Puyallup (Pyoo-al-up) to pick up a bedroom set we bought off ebay last week. I hope it all fits into one truck. My sister and brother in law, Sabrina and Matt, are driving one of my dad's truck and are going to help us load it all. Better not have any freezing rain! Mom called earlier and said they are having tons of it in Portland, and I heard that some was headed this way. Crossing my fingers...

So, that should be fun. And, also last night, we taped Enterprise and the first episode of Battlestar Gallactica, and get to watch them tonight. I know almost nothing about BG, but Ethan loved the series as a kid, and is quite excited, so I am looking forward to that. I really enjoy star trek enterprise. First new episode in 4 weeks, so it should be a good one.

A little more about Ethan and I......we are huge sports fans and have season tickets to the Supersonics (NBA), Storm (WNBA) and Seahawks (NFL). No Mariners tickets, because baseball is boring. So we are often out at games, which was the case last night when we ended up taping the two shows we want to see. We did it the old fashioned way. I am quite adept with electronics and such, and could easily program a VCR to tape something, but we choose to just push 'record' and leave, and I ended up taping also that 70's show, which comes on before Enterprise. That was nice. I watched one episode last night before going to bed. A new one, at that. Such is the benefit of just pushing record and recording a few hours of tv before the desired show comes on. Oh, and we have two VCR's on 2 TV's, so that was how we taped from 2 different channels. Actually, we have 3 VCR's and3 TV's, as well as 1 5-disc DVD player, and 1 400 disc DVD/CD changer (because of course, you can watch more than one movie at a time. There is even a 'random' button, where you can continuously watch movies and the changer will pick out another movie once yours is done. Does anyone need or use that??)

Enough for now. I must email this to everyone I know so people can learn about my fabulous life. Please make comments---tell me what you want to know!!

I see that I have been left out of your blog in the bed-set transfer...nice. So you don't need my help then? I must be acknowledged. I am your brother for crying out loud.

Oh, I have been remiss.......Jobie, my loving brother is also planning to help. Or at least he was. I don't know. There will be only 1 truck available to help with the bed, instead of 2 like we were hoping, so I suppose he could come along for moral support and general heavy lifting, but that is about it. Since there is no second truck.
