Happy Halloween

In: Uncategorized

This came in an email from my mother. She said that it reminded her of me. So Mom, do you think I have anger issues? I’ll have to hop on my broom and fly over to your house so we can talk about this. In the meantime, I want to wish everyone a happy Halloween! [...]

Mother’s Book Review

In: From the Bookshelf, Uncategorized

I need to tell you something just in case you didn’t get the memo. I’m a bibliophile. Next to collecting mid-century furniture, books are my passion, so imagine my joy when the publisher of this book asked me to write a review for my blog. Consider this my disclosure. I didn’t pay for this book…but [...]

Meet Furniture Husband

In: Uncategorized

I’m a firm believer that every woman should have more than one husband because one man can’t fill every need.  No offense guys, but even Superman left Lois Lane wanting.  Now I’m not talking about anything sexual.  I’m all about monogamy, but a woman needs more than one man to meet her needs in other [...]

The War Against Nurses and Coca-Cola

In: Uncategorized

I vaguely remember when nurses had enough time to get off the floor and meet around the old Coca-Cola machine. You could get a bottle for 10 cents back then, and you had time to drink the whole bottle before you had to go back to work. I opted to spend my time around the [...]

Planet Widowhood

This post begins with an ending. On February 27th, 2010 my beloved husband died in his sleep. His life ended and, in a way, mine did, too. Widowhood is a lonely word with a dark meaning, but life goes on. A new life begins when your old one ends. Sorry I’ve been away so long. [...]

The Inner Sanctum: Life in the Nurses’ Dormitory

In: Uncategorized

I wonder why these nursing students are smiling. They are hanging out in their room at the nurses’ dormitory. Don’t they look sweet and demure? That’s probably because the housemother was standing in the room. I bet these ladies could tell you some intriguing stories about what it’s like to live in the dormitory, but [...]

Google Gods

Google has an identity disorder. They think that they are God. Some of you may remember how Google ripped me off. Words cannot express my feelings about the event, but this video can. Up yours, Google. Tweet

Change of Shift: The Art of Giving Report.

In: Uncategorized

The ritual circle at change of shift. It’s called “giving report.” A photographer captured this image of student nurses standing at attention as they receive report from the off going shift. They are receiving report under the watchful eye of their instructor. Trust me. The students were quizzed about their patients after report. What the [...]
