Well, I heard a new one today.

[Poll #558730]

Not a whole lot going on. Fell asleep on the couch at 8:30 last night, which unfortunately means that when I was woken up at 6 my body said "Oh, ok." and now it's demanding to be fed and showered before the sky's full light. *yawn*

The mighty pumpkin in our backyard (we didn't plant it, it's probably from carving them out there last fall) is turning orange, which means I'll be able to clear out the foliage that's taken over the patio soon and maybe find the monarch chrysalisesesses- how the hell do you pluralize that?- and have fire! Yay fire. I am sneaking in a tiny bit of birthday celebration alongside [ profile] seeliefey's 30th next month, so I won't be having a party here, but I'm sure I can find a reason to throw one if it involves setting stuff on fire.

Kids have school in one week. Yeep. I'd kind of forgotten it was that soon. Speaking of school starting, [ profile] la_monday, 80s tailshakey? Last chance.

I got my rook pierced on the right side (go here for a pic of the location- it's the top one- and a hot redhead who is not me). It is itchy and sore. Not really unexpected, this- quoth the spare boy, "You shoved a piece of metal through your ear, duh it hurts"- but I always forget just how sore a new and/or pissy cart piercing can be. I've been walking around discreetly fanning the side of my head all week.

Starting to acquire Things for camping- need to get a few tubes of henna, portable foodstuffs, bug spray, oh and maybe a tent, heh. Also need batteries for the air mattress pump. I'm also thinking about getting some even more temporary body paints and just decorating any random passer-by who feels the need.

Finally remembered what I wanted to get off of limewire, at least.

80s night?

Not gonna go unless I get a blistering dose of enthusiasm from others who will also attend. Speak now or, uh, get a reasonable amount of sleep.

Am working til 8 and will check for comments then.

No cover totally free doesn't cost anything 80s night.
I have scary sneakers and a scary pink blazer and a crimping iron.
You know you want to.

Rain, rain, go away, come back as necessary to prevent drought but really, don't you think you've overstayed your welcome for this week? *sigh* The fish tank usually loses an inch every two weeks or so to evaporation (and possibly the cat drinking the water, but I don't think so. I think she's just harassing them). It hasn't lost any in a week and a half now.
Conall continues to be pesky as all getout, and we haven't been able to ship him outside or to the park for So Long. Maggie, at least, seems to be hitting a major developmental change and is sleeping 12-13 hours a night plus naps. Of course, she's also screaming her head off any time I tell her she can't nurse, or if I leave her sight, or Conall looks at her funny. Yes, clearly we all need to get outdoors, if this frelling rain ever stops.

Work continues to be worklike. My new method of training is to be given the hardest assignment on the floor and a veteran CNA to check in on me. Um. Though the biggest problem now is not doing any of the tasks, it's figuring out what needs to be done by when, and since everybody else just has it in their head and doesn't really explain why we're doing anything we do, it's been a bit hard to pick up on. So far I've gathered that a day is pretty much: Come in, go through and brief anyone who needs it and toilet anyone who doesn't, get all the two assists up for dinner, get everyone else up for dinner, pass trays, escort the residents that eat there down to the main dining room, feed anybody that needs feeding in the supervised dining room on our unit, put all two assists back to bed, give everybody a partial bed bath or shower if they're on the list, do rounds, do charts. WHEE.
This assignment is 11 people with 8 that are two assist for transfers, including 3 that scream and swear and hit when you try to wash them, one that refuses to use her call button and just screams "HEEEEEELLLLLP!" all night long, 3 entirely bedbound people, and two hoyer lifts. The one thing they luck out on is feeding...most of them are either independent or one guy is tube fed, not that that's actually a break since there are plenty of people to be fed in the dining room and we all have to share that. The logic is that if I can do that hall, I can do any assignment...except that it's the only hall I've worked with, so only know a handful of the other residents and their status.

I suspect that I will not be joining Renee at the Haven for Leash and Collar night. Sheena did not find a sitter, so we can't scar her forever, and without that it's just not interesting enough to drive over the bridge for, especially since I'd have to change at work. I know some people have nurse fantasies, but I think they're usually wearing those dumb white dresses and not scrubs with fishies on them.
