Worked 10hrs today, which is a drag, but the shift was relatively easy with only 4 calls. And with Christmas bonus pay I was making $24/hr, so that definitely takes the sting off.

V, your daughter is gorgeous! Great looking kids.

classicman 12-25-2011 09:02 PM

Waves at big V and his clan. Nice pic, bro.

We had a small medical emergency on Christmas so I couldn't post then. But today will do fine.

My oldest daughter went through Nursing School with a small group of study-mates,
who have remained friends all these years later, after kids, marriages, divorces,
and all the things that happen in adult life.
Each year they still exchange Christmas gifts, and this was the gift
to my daughter, Murph, from her best friend, Donna.
The two pages were hand-written, almost stream-of-conscious

This gift may require an explanation.
This year when I started to thinking about Christmas, of gifts,
a recurring thought kept coming to my mind...
"One Word" One word for each of my dearest friends.

I immediately discounted this as a silly idea, but
Somehow the thought kept returning. The more I
tried to think of something else, the more I thought of
your word.

You will notice that the word that I chose is not a descriptive
word... for that I would have chosen differently.
Likewise, it is not an unusual or unique word.
It is more of a wish-for-you kind of word.
Something that I hope you find more of this year.

Full time. Part time. Time for work. Night time. Bed time.
Homework time. Winter time. Daytime. Dinnertime. Half time.
Quitting time. Miller time; Paid-time-off. Time after time.
Peace time. War time. lunch time. playtime. summertime.
Make time. Tea time; Time-to-go. Posttime. Timecard.
Timeout. Timetable. Time flies when you're having fun.
Where did the time go ?

So much time, and yet ---
That is my word-wish for you...
TIME

Murph,
You are so busy. a Full time job
* a Full time Mom
* a Full time Student
* a Full time housekeeper, chauffeur, helper of homework
* a Full time friend

But, in all these things, wonderful as each is, not enough TIME for you !
I worry that you don't spend TIME taking care of yourself,
doing the things that make you happy.

I want you to spend more TIME with Abby,
doing things that make you laugh and giggle
until your sides hurt and your eyes water.

I want you to spend just a little TIME all by yourself,
when it is quiet - doing nothing and thinking
about nothing - just breathing.

I want you to spend TIME with the people who mean
the mmost to you because we never know
when we will run out of TIME with them.

And so, my gift to you is TIME. An hourglass and a heart.

They are to remind you to take just one hour out of each day
to do something that you love.
Just one hour.... Take the TIME.

Merry Christmas, My Friend !
Donna.
And below are the three items enclosed with the letter...
... an hour glass
... a heart-shaped rock
... a plaque with a saying

It all made me very happy to know my daughter has such good friends...
who love her as much as her Mom and I do.

classicman 12-27-2011 11:14 PM

Wonderful. I hope everyone is OK now.

Lola, that looks frightening.
Not least because it bears a passing resemblance to a coffee machine disguised as a Cyberman (see below).

I started my extra hours today.
I like the teacher I am working with, and the Higher Level Teaching Assistant.
My first afternoon seemed to go well, my new charge did not have a meltdown or try to hit me. Half j/k.

I also got some silly bits & pieces sorted that I should have done a while back - putting my prescription in, checking what's going into and out of my bank account and resizing/ deleting my photos.

Also I received the first set of 2nd hand books from eBay.
They are sold on the understanding that they are in a good enough condition to read, but not to give as a present. They are a bit battered it's true, but will do me well. And certainly for the price.

Have started on Jacob Have I Loved. It will make me cry before the end. Paterson's books invariably do.
I'll review it in the Books thread.

An all-clear mammo after a few weeks of intense boobeh pain. They squeezed me (that joke never gets old) in when I finally decided it was much too intense to be normal and saw my doc. And as my mom is a BC survivor and so was my grandma I was really scared. Inexplicable pain I can deal with. Just my old body being old. Such a relief! :)

I'm treating myself to a victory lunch.

Sundae 01-09-2012 01:38 PM

Fantastic news babba.
Make that a bloody good lunch.
