so long

It's been forever since I've posted.

The 'crud' (yes, it is a medical term) is now here. I've been crazy busy at work the past 2-3 weeks. Spending evenings, at least 1-2 hours, finishing notes at home. I know, be jealous. And we're still short staffed at work so we're all pitching in to make sure things are finished before we leave the office. I'm just wiped out when I get home. I miss sleep. . . .because the fabulous personality that I have doesn't allow me to sleep when we're busy at work. I dream about work, worry about things, have dreams about diagnosis I missed. I'm sure you all do the same. I just wish I could dream and nice dream. About being on a beach somewhere, tanning my pasty white body. (I know about the melanoma, but I promise if I start seeing dead people I'll see the doctor Izzy Stephens/Grey's Anatomy.)

And I'm finally caught up on Lost. Well, just through Season 4. I've been recording Season 5 on the DVR and Ed and Sus told me I'm not allowed to watch without them. Those season boxed sets really get you spoiled. I try to fast forward through live tv. What did we do without them?

But life hasn't been all bad. During spring break I went with the youth on Switch Break. I hope to post some pics soon. We spent 3 days doing service projects around Tulsa. It was really refreshing. And I got to spend time with some really great kids. And slept on linoleum floors. This old lady can't do that anymore. Sleeping on the floor, ok I brought the air mattress, doesn't count as sleep. It's more of a close your eyes, turn over and bounce for awhile. Then get cold because you only have a sheet to cover you up. Because another child wakes you up crying because she is so cold and you give her your blanket. So you cover your arms up and try to go back to sleep. Then your feet get cold and you wake up and move the sheet to your feet. Get the idea? I did spend the next night in my bed because I had to work. The 'children' spent the entire night at Laser Quest. I knew I couldn't do that and work the next day. . . . Ah to be a teenager.

So that's where I've been. Crud. Linoleum. Sleep. Pretty much sums up the past few weeks.

I hope to have some fun soon. . . . maybe I'll even find some time to post some pics.
