21st Century Lesbian Trailer Trash

These are the mad musings of a middle aged woman, dyke, nurse, poet. I have a dog, a cat, a mobile home, and delusions of grandeur.

Gratuitous Pity Party, etc.

Just hand me a little of that brie to go with my whine.

The day I posted my last sorry entry, I went to work and 2 more nurses went out on a leave of absence. One for 10 days and one for 6 weeks. I worked a 12 hour shift on the floor last Friday because we were plumb out of nursie bodies. It was kind of fun.

But the worst news was that my sister's youngest daughter went into the hospital with a spontaneous pneumothorax (collapsed lung). R. is still in the hospital and K. can't make the trip to Kauai.

The kid will be OK. She's finally starting to heal after several procedures. I have a couple of extra dollars floating around so that I'll be able to do a couple of fun things while I'm there.

I'm so exhausted that all I want to do is sleep. At least I'll be doing that on the beach for the next few days.

I am packing some extra coffee in my bag. I'm not so clever as Mocha who made her own coffee pods for the BlogHer conference. But I am clever enough to rig things with paper towel and napkins.

Jaz will be staying with her original people so I won't have to worry about her.

The news is so bizarre as to defy intelligent comment these days. So I will leave well enough alone with hopes that I will survive to rant another day.

Y'all be good while I'm gone.

It sounds like you've earned this vacation, perhaps more righteously than anyone has ever earned a vacation before. Be sweet to yourself. Get a massage; enjoy a cup of Kona coffee at midnight; indulge.

We'll expect a tanned, rested, and ready Nurse Pam upon your return. Ready for what? That's up to you.
