Murphy's Law of Nursing

Here are just a few of my Murphy's Law of Nursing

1.  Never bring anything to work that you need to get done!
Over the years I always see many nurses coming to work with an extra bag of things, like crafts, bills to write out, children's projects, addressing Christmas cards etc....
I have learned on the nights that I would bring in things like that to finish would be a horrible night!  Whether I worked in in ICU or labor and deliver my bag would sit there....NOTHING ever gets done, so honestly do not bother!!

2.  Dr.'s are horrible at saying, "I was wrong,  you were right", no explanation needed there!!

That is it for now....Oh I forgot, if you like the Foo Fighters like myself, they are going to be playing at the Bamboozle Festival in May in New Jersey with Bon Jovi and Blink 182:-)

Dave Grohl vs. the Philadelphia Flyers

Dave Grohl vs. the Philadelphia Flyers

I have partial season tickets to the Philadelphia Flyers this year.  I absolutely love it.  

So far this season, I have managed to take 4 out of 5 ppl to the games. I'm going to take my mother to a game on her birthday, it will be her first hockey game and even cooler is that the Flyers are playing the Boston Bruins:)

Now, as most of you know, I'm a HUGE, Foo Fighters fan.  I have been teasing the children the next time, the Foo Fighters tour the area I would take them to a concert, however I lied-because the tickets were too expensive, way too expensive!!  

My little one #4 since she could talk could sing any of the Foo's songs, she is absolutely the cutest thing and talks about Dave all the time and she is only 5.

Last night while I was at the Flyers game, my Otherhalf put her on the phone and she told me she doesn't want to go to a Flyers game, she wants to see Dave and the Foo's----how sweet!!!!

Mice, A Cat and a Python, Oh My!!!

So, the Otherhalf calls me from work, and I love him, but some days I really wonder about the fellows he works with!!

Now, in case you do not know the Otherhalf is a Firefighter in this great City of Brotherly Love.

He called me this evening and is a little freaked out because they have or had a pretty bad infestation problem with mice at their fire house for YEARS.

They had tried everything from exterminators, to buying a cat or two, who by the way are missing, I'm not sure why but they are and they have been missing for some time.

Now one of the firefighters had a great idea a day or two ago.  This crazy nut purchased a 3 foot python to handle the problem....they put the python into the hole that they are positive that the mice come out from in the kitchen, the only problem now is the python has been missing for over 24 hours, good news is that no one has spotted a single mouse, hence the reason none of them can now sleep.

My response is seriously you can not make this stuff up!

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Not much new here.... I'm apologizing in advance

Hello All,
Nothing new to report here, well there are a few things but until I take #1 to the Dr.'s tomorrow I will not know the how bad his injury for right now I'm leaving it at that!!

All I really want to report is, " Sometimes you are the windshield, and sometimes you are the I am the bug"..........

Chris Progner time to grow up!!

As many of you know already I am a HUGE hockey fan!!  And I love the Flyers and I like a few other hockey teams too, but for right now I feel my need express my concerns about what happened to Chris Progner.

Let me begin by saying, I am sure as heck that they are probably a pain in the ass, especially to an older(no disrespect) NHL hockey players, who for the life of their career have not worn them.

I am an RN who started out prior the Universal Precautions; you know before we wore gloves for everything.  I placed a million IV's without wearing gloves, changed shitty sheets, emptied foley catheters get the idea, but as time passed and healthcare made it mandatory....I had to learn to place IV's with gloves on, I did not like it but I did it and now I can not imagine for my life doing it any other way.  It is a learned process. 

I am happy that we were forced to wear gloves, masks, gowns when needed. I definitely think it is time for the NHL to step up and protect their players and as for Chris Progner, I am sure as hell certain that you want to see your children grow up, it is time to grow up put on a visor not only for yourself but for your children's sake too.

Chris, I wish you the best of luck and am looking forward to seeing you back on the ice in the next few weeks with a visor on.  Lets Go Flyers!!!!

Thank You Dilaudid!!

Hello Everyone!
Yes, I am so happy and SUPER pain free right now! Thank you to whomever invented Dilaudid:-) I am feeling much better compared to having the same surgery performed less than 8 months ago. The pain is a lot less or the pain meds this time are way better-lol....

Thank you to Jenny-The Bloggess for keeping my spirits up and keeping me in stitches(literally).

I included a picture, sorry it's a little yucky..... I desperately needed to re-wrap my Ace-Bandage that was falling off today, and I tried to take the best picture I could with one elbow looks worse than it feels, I'm still very swollen & bruised, and I estimated the sutures to be about 8 inches in length.

I will keep everyone updated, take care!

Time to put on my Big girl panties!!

Yes, that is right, it's time for me put on my Big Girl panties!

My arm & elbow are bleeping throbbing but no one in the this unit seems to care about that or me. It's been to important to talk about me in the hallway and how my *pain* is!!!
Just let me explain,'s the third time I've been through this in the past 15 months and today I'm pretty f-ing angry about how I'm being poo-poo'ed away........

So, remember this.... bitchy nursing staff............ I am a nurse too, I try to never put down another nurse, but I was a manager at one time and I plan on taking names and take you girls & guys down during the survey I was given upon my arrival this morning BEFORE my surgery.

Yeah the Big Girl panties are on.....but your names are being placed on my list!

Friday, September 23, 2011

Let the countdown begin!

On Monday, I am getting my elbow reconstructed AGAIN, why not right?  Because breaking it on my own, did not hurt bad enough the first time and then having reconstructed in January did not hurt enough, here we go again....Let the count down begin!!!!

I am really looking forward to some serious laughter provided by The Bloggess, Jenny over the next few months, after all laughter is the best medicine, but a little dilaudid does not hurt either:-)

Take Care everyone and I will try to keep you informed...I included a picture of my last surgery without the brace on my arm, just to show you what my arm will be looking like for months.

I am going to win an Oscar !

I was assisting in a delivery a few hours ago, and I did the whole Happy Birthday singing, during some resuscitation etc....told the parents how handsome their new baby boy was but, let me tell you, he was truly a FLK(funny looking kid) at first I was a little concerned, because Mom & Dad looked pretty normal, but then the Dad's brother showed up along with the Paternal Grandparents and all my concerns disappeared:-)

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Did you really just ask that???

As many of you know, I had my left elbow completely reconstructed in January. It was pretty uncomfortable, to say the least! I had 4 c/sections-two were classical c/sections(I was cut up and down inside and out) and two nice little bikini cut c/sections. All 4 combined after surgery did not top the pain that one little surgery on my arm caused. I could sum it up on a scale of 1 to 10 as 100, yes, I know I sound like one of those crazy drug seeking patients, but really it was 100.

Maybe, it was due to the fact, I had my arm dislocated again, because in all seriousness it didn't hurt enough the first time, then they reset by bones, because even though they healed nicely the first time, they healed 1.5 inches away from each other, I got new ligaments from a cadaver because it turns out I had NO ligaments holding my arm in place. My favorite part of the surgery was all sorts of holes being drilled into my bones to suture the new ligament/tendons in place.....and I hate general anesthesia so I asked to be happily confused during the surgery until after they dislocated my arm I definitely remember screaming something like M-fer.....

A quick little public service announce- Never, Never Fall on Outstretched hands!!

Which finally brings me to: What did my kids say today? I have another follow up appointment in the am with Ortho.

1. Mom is that Dr. who always tries to pull out your arm of it's socket going try it again tomorrow?

2. Does the doctor actually know the dead guy who's ligaments/tendons you have?

3. Doesn't your new arm gave like a 5 year warranty?!!!

I Love My Patients

My patients are cracking me up tonight again!

This is the second time in the past 6 months, while my patient was in labor and trying to push a 10 pound, 11 ounce baby out of her vagina-she grabbed my arm so hard and said, she was going to kill her husband::giggle::
It definitely did not help he was SCREAMING, "And Push, One, Two, Three", etc....

Public Service Announcement #321 again, she is not deaf, and neither was any other person in the room!

If I was him, I would sleep with one eye open because after she is sown back together again and gets up to walk around in the next few hours, she will probably give New Dad some pillow therapy!!

Out of the mouths of Babes!

Kindergartener-"Yeah, she is really, nice, I like her!"

Kindergartener-"Something for her eyebrows, it looks like she has caterpillars on her face"

Kindergartener-"Something to remove them"

I Can Ice Skate, Biotch! Watch Out........

Hello Everyone, sorry for not posting the last few days or so...........

This is what's new with me,  Thank Goodness-The Bloggess, Jenny is back up and running, she has returned from vacation with some really funny post, you can link to her website via the sidebar {- that way, enjoy!
I'm really happy she is back, The Otherhalf is not, he wasn't too impressed with the Banana's I have imprinted with bad sayings and left out for him to find the next morning:-)

On another note, I was Happy to see that The Flyers are having try-outs for their, "Flyers Ice Team"!  So happy I reviewed all the information-----carefully:-)  Then I decided to, look up some of the requirements:  perfect I'm off,  I can perform all of the requirements, specifically the age, I'm over 18 and better yet no age limitations.
Then, I carefully looked up what do The Flyers Ice Team girls/boys look like?

Well, let me first tell you I have partial season tickets, and I have never seen a male, so what do these girls look like?  Shit, they are young, good-looking girls, wearing small outfits!

I'm a good looking woman, under 35- read my blog- I've been 33 for a few years, but I keep myself in shape, seriously who has time to eat running around after 4 kids and get them to their multiple sporting events, like ice skating lessons, playing for multiple soccer teams all over the city!
I ice skate has much as I can and exercise to the best of my ability..............

I decided to then call, the number provided for more information:  definitely no age limits, just need to pass the obstacle course, so I decided to mess around with the person who took my call.

I proceed to tell the woman that I told my Grandmother all about the Flyers Ice Team try-outs and she wants me to bring her to New Jersey, and that she has Ice Skated her entire life and plans on trying out, I want to make sure that if I'm driving her 60 miles round trip that her age will not be counted against her.
I was completely reassured, my Grandmothers age is not a factor and if she can do all of the ice skating requirements and obstacle course she will be picked, also her interview counts, which I told the woman, my Grandmother was sweet and charming, sweet as pie-she will definitely make it, and I will make sure that her dermatologist does not do any skin cancer scrapings prior to the tryout, she does have amazing skin for being 88.  I want to make sure her pictures will look great that day.

The woman was more than happy to get me off the phone at that point and she did seem completely confused and was like WTH by the end of our conversation:)

My job was then complete, I need an old lady outfit, complete with rubber mask and hair to pull this off, just to prove the point they would never pick an old lady:)

Funniest thing I read in a few days-The Bloggess

Sorry but this has to be hands down the funniest thing I read in awhile!

Shit, you should NEVER see!!

Now this was scary!

A few days ago, during our lovely heat wave, I had promised an old friend I would mail her some information about vacationing in The Outer Banks.

Now, my family and I had been home for about a week.  Still unpacking, putting things away, climbing over loads of laundry to catch up on, and I'm feeling guilty. "Crap", I think to myself I have to mail that information to my friend.......

Really, not wanting to do it, but after passing by the information for a few days, I just had too.  So, I tell the kids, "Come on, get ready to go out, time to blow the stink off you guys, I have to run an errand or two".

So, there we go, the 5 of us......first stop--the Post Office-one of my favorite places to go and stand in line with 4 kids for like EVER, just to mail some shit.

We make our way out of the post office and directly across from our car/Some Super Old Dude got out of his car-wearing ONLY his underwear........All of my kids, including myself are now scarred for life!!!

Yes,, because I really can not believe WTF I'm seeing and now I have 4 kids who cannot stop staring at this weirdo, not to mention my youngest 3 have ALL sorts of questions about "what's he doing/is that normal/can you drive just wearing underwear?" I have time for this.............................................

Then this Super Old Dude proceeds to put on his shorts and it took him forever to get those fuckers zipped up right and put on his wife-beater shirt in the PARKING LOT....oh yes, and his shoes too and then he walks into the Post Office.

Okay, I really should not comment any further, but in all SERIOUSNESS: if it is SO HOT that you need to be driving around "just" wearing your underwear and you do not have the common decency to put on  your clothes in your car THEN ....I think that letter or whatever you needed to mail so Desperately could probably wait a day or two, but hey that's just me:-)

Sometimes life will surprise you!

Sometimes life will surprise you!

Life as I expect, surprises many people for MANY different reasons at Very different moments in time etc., but when it comes to certain situations, I believe over the years of being a nurse...I'm just not that surprised anymore.

People in the medical field, I find after telling a story, oh don't my disclosure at the bottom of my blog........the names are definitely protected under HIPAA......I find us medical/emergency/police officers/firefighters saying, "Seriously this happened, really you couldn't make this shit up even if you wanted too!"

There is something absolutely wrong with our story is true, it has nothing to do with the medical profession, but you Really can't fix stupid/dirt and or the just plain weird, this I know for a fact, you can not, you can't, so don't waste you time trying...................

Yes, it's time for one other quick post....well sort of........

I've mentioned in the past my horrible insomnia issues, and thank you to my husband who decided in the middle of the night to get up and go to the bathroom- that would be yesterday now, at 3am---I'm still awake!
So, in 2 hours I will be awake for now what is going to be 24 hours!  Imagine that!!

Now my favorite Blogger- "The Bloggess" otherwise, known as Jenny, has the same issues with insomnia as I.  Recently she was up all night googling shit...insomnia, and jet-lag after returning from a trip and found amazing information about hamsters on Viagra and how it lessened their jet lag by 50%!

Even though I read her blog about those hamsters and laughed my rear-end off...I never once thought again about those hamsters in the study or jet-lag or pretty much anything else, seeing that I am so freaking tired and ALL I want to do is sleep, but seriously cannot.....I described it as having Red Bull running through my veins, so tired I'm going too vomit but yet when I closed my eyes to read the inside of my eyelids, I can't...........

But starting around 3am last night (thank you again to my Otherhalf) until about 10:30am.  I was a googling, insomnia, which lead me to all sorts of other things like circadian rhythm, jet-lag & delayed sleep stuff and shift worker syndrome etc.....

When I arrived at jet-lag via Wikipedia, damn......... if there really was not a study that was done on fucking hamsters and Viagra!!!

Of course I always believed Jenny, but that is some serious shit, really hamsters with hard-ons being flown around the world to look at jet-lag and recovery times?

Hopefully now that I have gotten that off my chest maybe I'll sleep-maybe not and I'll actually be like the first person to stay awake forever:-)

Who know, but stayed tune, because when I'm in this state of mind who the heck knows what I'll post....

Thank You again to all my new followers, why you follow me is beyond me, but I like that someone out there is reading this occasionally, hardly ever gives me any feedback & hopefully they do not think I'm too crazy:-)

Yours Truly,

Monday Mayhem, it is after midnight right?

Monday Hot Mayhem

Welcome to Monday Mayhem/
Thanks for coming back!

Today we are just going to answer some random questions.

1. Were you a fan of Amy Winehouse? Were you surprised about her?
Yes, totally liked her unique singing, completely not surprised about the OD.  Now, she'll probably get factored into the 27 club, it is a "curse" for the rich and famous.

2. What have you always wanted to do try doing during a heat wave? Have you done it? What's holding you back?
I always wanted it to be about 20 degrees or more cooler, I was not able to make it happen!

3. "Judd" from Sunday Stealing is having a party. Are you going? What are you planning to bring with you?
Absolutely I'm going and I'm bring a bottle of Southern Comfort with me.

4. Do you think other countries deserve a set of twins (kind of like the "French Twins")? Which country would you designate a twin country?

5. Would you ever trade your lifestyle for the lifestyle of someone rich and famous? Why or why not?
No, I like my life, I wish I had enough money for a maid, but money does not give one complete happiness, yes money can buy some happiness but at least when your poor you know who your true friends are.

6. What's the stupidest thing you heard last week?
You can't fix stupid....after some guy hooked his own finger fishing, it was pretty funny, yes I'm a sick person:)

Thanks for playing and stay cool amigos!


I think occasionally I post about my #2, she looks at the world around her in a different way.

 The Otherhalf and I just keep saying to ourselves: One day she will open the eyes of others to view the world as she sees it!!

It's not a #2-ism it's her friend- Go figure.

Looking off the end of the Pier.

Girlfriend-" there are sure a lot of jellyfish down there". 

#2, "yup there are, what are those things hanging from them again?" 

Girlfriend, "Oh, those things are called testicles." 

#2, "that's right, testicles!"

Nice Adirondack Chair, No it's about a SHARK

So how was your vacation?
We arrived home two days ago, but below is a little tidbit that happened to us on our vacation: 

Okay, are you wearing your pull-ups because this is CRAZY! We are on vacation getting vocal with the locals etc... Having a blast and today, the ocean water is Absolutely FREEZING, like 56 degrees, it went from bath water to--the water is so cold you feel like there are ice cubes in the water. Hardly any brave souls at the beach attempting to get in the water it is mind numbing. The winds are coming from SSE or maybe it was SSW, but according to the locals it makes a big difference in the ocean temp.

Did you see the picture of the adirondack chair I posted?? Well look above because you may need to refer to it again.
Today it was hot here, okay very hot on the beach I would say.
The Otherhalf and #1 decided to get in the water, they couldn't take it anymore. "Polar Plunge", they yelled as they ran into the freezing ocean.

I'm sitting on the beach having a great time with one of the locals, who has lived here about 40 some years, watching all the other kids playing in the sand. Then, after a bit I see The Otherhalf and #1 running out of the water and I mean RUN--I'm thinking some sorta race between the both of them?

As Mr. Local starts to tell something,The Otherhalf & #1 who are wrapped in towels, speechless just staring at the ocean, they were not even blinking(I found that sorta odd,) I'm thinking they are just numb from being in the water because they can not even talked yet.

It turns out Mr. Local tells us there is a "pretty big shark, ya' all know, he has been coming in closer and closer to the beach, ya' all better be careful, I hear he is very long, well geez maybe 16 feet?, n'a maybe it was 18 feet give or take a foot, well heck my memory is not what it was before."

The Otherhalf and #1 are shivering, okay maybe it was shaking, either way, they are not talking, but I saw them blink a few times. They are looking at the ocean & then each other and then looking at Mr. Local.

Mr. Local says "Oh, by the way, nice to meet ya all, be safe now, I got's to get going the Mrs. is making some fine dinner & she does not appreciate when I'm late". I say goodbye great to meet you, hopefully we will see you tomorrow & maybe the Mrs. I help him pack up, his belongings and The Otherhalf and #1 are still not saying anything at all!

Me-- I'm thinking WTH to The Otherhalf & #1, what is wrong with you two, geez no manners! "well that was pretty scary, about the shark stuff? Well, Mr. Local was a cute thing. How was the water you two?? You two look cold?" 

Then The Otherhalf tells me what just happened.

He says a few feet in front of them a LARGE fin, about the size of the back of an adirondack chair slowly came out of the water for what felt like forever--it was not a dolphin or porpoise, it never came up for air. It swam around in front of them, they just stood frozen trying to see what it could be, then after what felt like an eternity they could not see any of the large fin around them it completely disappeared, the two of them then ran as fast as they could to get out of the water.

Okay, I'm terrified of sharks and I mean terrified, yesterday a 6 year old was attacked in 18 inches of water! It's the third attack this year in this area. I don't care if the winds change directions and the ocean temperature is like bath water, sharks scare me & obviously The Otherhalf and #1 are now scared too.

For Jenny The Bloggess Again

I sent the following e-mail to my Mother & and old friend of mine, while we are on vacation.....I can not imagine how the conversation is going to go in the next few hours with my Mother, but I imagine something like this....Are you Okay? Are you on drugs? Do you think you need to see a specialist......and to top it off.

I'm sorta like Jenny-The Bloggess, I have horrible insomnia too, it sucks and it's been my curse of working Nightshift forever, I'm going to hell, I know, hopefully I'll have lots of friends their with let me figure out how to get the e-mail onto this page and off to sleep I must go, my mother is an early person and she is usually up by 0500, which means I have to like force myself to sleep for about an hour in a half or something!

Hey, there Dear Friend,
I'm on vacation in the Outer Banks but figured you may get a kick out of the email I sent my Mom! I need therapy....
P.S.-Michele is my Aunt, married to my Dads brother Chris
P.P.S.- The Hamsters wheel squeaks like a MO-FO!
P.P.P.S- I forgot the mention to my Mom the kids were only drinking soda @ least my cousins swore that to me today!

Subject: A Note from my #2:)

Hi Mom,
Hello!! OMG, the weathers been great but boy those waves are killers:) The kids are getting tossed like pancakes, they are having a fun time.  #2 asked me to take a picture of this for you....I took about 10 pictures of it and I still have to ask her what is says....she wrote,"Dear Nana, Feed my frog on Tuesday"-LOL, she cracks my up....remind me to tell you the story of drinking 2.5 bottles of wine, probably got Roofied by Michele but she's blaming Chris(Uncle) now instead, oh and I'm DEFINITELY not getting the "Mother of The Year Award" because while I was completely intoxicated on Reisling, I think Roof-ied, Cousin #1, #2 and the triplets taught the kids how to play Beer Poing......which I found out at 10pm last night.....

According the all of them #3 as the best skills and is a ringer!!

P.S.-How are the hamsters? Did Pop-Pop WD-40 them yet??
Okay I gotta go...
Love Ya,

This Post is for Jenny

Hi Jenny,
This post is for you!

This is a story about my 5 Foot bear, he is a pain in the ass to move even an inch to clean around......

For about 16 plus years I've been asking for one of those Umbrella stands, yes I do have an addiction to totes umbrellas, but this is what my "lovely" bear is good for.......hanging shit on and hooking things around his ears, his nose, his head whatever, oh yes, and he ROCKS my purse on occasions and a Santa's hat at Christmas!

When you do not want to put your belongs away---sometime very soon(Thank God school starts in about a month), the 4 kids I have.... will be placing their backpacks, lunchbox items, shoes and all sorts of other thing on and around him.
And when the Otherhalf brings home is extra set of bunker gear from the Fire Department, the bear rocks a fire helmet.

And last, but not least is our 2 foot bear...I actually like him, since I ice skate regularly, I usually throw my light weight jacket on him & sometimes a purse of sorts off one of his ears.  He is actually not that heavy, maybe 50-100 pounds....I would actually keep him in the house,

He is pretty cute, but that other Freaking Bear that 5 foot has got to go.....

The OtherHalf has always been afraid someone would steal him, yeah right! He's 450-500 pounds.

Holy Moly, it took a bunch of us to get him in the house... The people stealing him will be suing us because they will be throwing out their back(s), possibly need surgery & physical therapy forever!! See what I have to put up with????

Wednesday, July 6, 2011


Welcome to my new followers! Do not expect much from me for this social media shit is hard to keep up with!! I do not post much anymore but maybe that will change, who knows....

Well, if you haven't read to much into my blog, I'm a nurse/actress....functioning as a nurse, but acting like a give a damn most days....sorry to say that but it is the truth.....

I always wanted to be a vet, but they have fucked up jobs like nurses too, however my take is animals are way more cooler than humans on most given days.

I would personally like to thank my patient for bring in her Toy Dog while she was in labor nothing like having to babysit her sorry ass in labor and watch her puppy until a family member could pick the little thing up and also thank you for making me have to clean up your dogs shit----it's not like my day didn't suck already!

I am who I am because of them
Welcome to the May 5th edition of Thursday Thunks!
(which we always seem to post on Wednesday)
Where we make you think a little bit before you blog!
We pick a subject, and your job is to interpret it anyway you want.
Write about it on your blog... simple as that.
Maybe you can interpret it as a picture - we don't care!
Please only leave a link if you have written a Thursday Thunks post.
Don't forget to go visit the other participants' blogs.
Read and comment about all their Thursday Thunks responses!
That's what all this is about after all, isn't it?
We'll have so much fun and become lifelong friends....

The TT questions are brought to you by Berleen, the color of the shark that nomnom'd on Osama and the number eight

*We will now be publishing updates for Thursday Thunks on Facebook via the InsanityCafe fanpage. Please "like" us there to get your TT reminder!
And please remember not to take these questions literally. I got a message last week questioning the questions. This is meant to be a fun, think about it meme... there is not supposed to be serious answers! Have fun with it for pete's sake! Whoever Pete is....

1. Name 5 famous people that you wouldn't be you without them.
Dave Grohl, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin,the Beatles, & Pink Floyd--I love music

2. So yeah, did you hear Osama is dead? If you could take any letter out of the alphabet and have it never ever used again, which letter would it be?Yes, I did hear about Osama's death, and a letter I think I could due without is the Letter Z

3. If you were to swallow a guitar pick, would you tell anyone?
Nope, I'd just wait a few days to see if it comes out the other end:-)

4. My tummy hurts. Do you know anyone that eats strange things like toilet paper, chalk or some other off the wall thing that shouldn't be eaten?
Sorry to hear your belly hurts! I have met many strange pregnant women over the years who had God aweful crazy cravings, everything from sniffing white-out and also eating it too, and working in pediatrics it always amazes me how many children will eat strange things because they like it...I took care of a 3 year old who was eating all of his sisters barbie shoes, he said they tasted good, like bubblegum--Go Figure

5. Whats your favorite kind of noodle?
Macaroni noodles

6. So yeah, back to this Osama stuff. When someone says "the event that everyone will remember where they were when they heard the news", what event do you think of?
JFK shooting- I was not born yet, but that always comes to my mind

7. Someone last week mentioned that I don't have to have exactly 10 questions, so should I stop here?

8. Name 5 not-famous people that you wouldn't be you without them.
The Otherhalf, and my 4 children:-)

Sunday Stealing-Happy Easter!

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go!!!

Today we ripped off a blogger named Mejis from the blog Southern Discomfort. She explains the she was tagged for the meme from Miss Angie over at My So-Called Chaos. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

The Queens Meme #78

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #78
7 Royal Questions on Tuesday

Today we are discussing the wonders of Spring. But it's not all about blooming flowers and Easter cards this time. Just a simple play on words with a twisted smack of alliteration and snark thrown in. You know, the usual. Now do me a favor and add your smack to the smack.

1. What about spring ticks you off the most?
People wearing inappropriate clothes, seriously the overweight woman who should be wearing a size 16, but instead she is squeezing herself into a size 6, God Bless her for trying, but it drives me nuts, also men who wear socks with sandels, WTH!!

2. How many blooming idiots have you met lately?
All of my patients husbands are blooming idiots, now I know for a fact because I do some childbirth classes, and I do NOT teach them to scream at their wives during labor to push...... one two, three....Okay, we are NOT deaf, she is in pain and so I am, your are hurting my ears, and to top it off your wife whispered in my ear she is going to kill you during your sleep, and I never tell a secret!

3. If spring springs early when you're in the middle of a spring fling, does that mean you must flung 'em out of your life early or can it wait until summer comes?
I'll do the fling now---Out with the old and In with the new, thank you.

4. If you could toss one thing or person out the window during your annual spring cleaning, who would it be?
Anybody in the way, I take spring cleaning VERY seriously.

5. Do you have seasonal defective disorder?
Yes, I do thanks for asking:-)

6. If you left the windows open on a cool spring night, what would the neighbors see?
Me in my birthday suit, I love to be naked, just ask my neighboors.

7. Name your most potent allergens during this season of (achoo!) bliss.
Grass and not the good grass:-)

How to say Goodbye......

There is no easy way, Mothers are always more upset, mostly being because they knew their baby longer, the little kicks, movements and the funny hiccups.....I really dislike my job on days like today, with every infant my parents have lost---I feel as if a piece of myself goes with them.

Helpless and hopeless, I have no explanations for them and no words to comfort them come to my mind, just a wide-eyed nurse with the look of being caught in headlights.

If my job does not suck enough, try to imagine telling them it is time to let go........

Again enough about Chris Progner!

I had no idea the Flyers relied that heavy on Chris Pronger the biggest a-hole in history of the Flyers team. Really, the team needs to pull up their big boy panties and play some hockey!! They can not skate or make a goal without Pronger??

One player does not a TEAM make ---- wake the heck up boys- Good Grief!!!!!!

Great Performance!

Loved SNL last night with the Foo Fighters, it was a great performance!

Now, onto other news .......... a topic dear to my heart.....Congratulations to The Philadelphia Flyers for clinching the Atlantic Division. It's been a little crazy during your past few games but you'll be fine.....stop putting all your hope in Pronger and his return, he may be good- okay maybe great, but he is a complete butt-hole. I have no tolerance for self centered jerks!!!!

Make due with what you have, everyone do their job, chins up and smile---LET'S GO FLYERS!!!
