Today I was off.....Had a real exciting day going to the doctor and having a few benign skin lesions removed. I love that word, LESIONS. Yesterday I worked 16 hours and had to get up early for a departmental meeting (it wasn't mandatory but close to it) and I had an appointment at 8:15 AM to have things removed. So I got paid for 1 1/2 hours and went to breakfast with Chuck. I had not been out to breakfast for a long time, I do not consider breakfast at the hospital as being "out."

I did a few errands and actually went home and took a two hour nap. When I got home at 11 PM last night and then could not fall asleep, even though I was exhausted....Got up at 5 AM and off to do my required things.

It is snowing and blowing. Along with everyone in the Midwest and Northest, it is freezing arse cold......I have a thermostat that sets back at night. I think I will set it at 68F and let the furnace work all night. The coldest I can remember in western PA is -22 below, I was on call and up all night and all I wanted to do was go home and get warm. I think it was 1993 or possibly 1994, I think it was a winter that Emily will be telling her grandchildren how cold it was and she had to walk to school uphill both ways........

Guess I will have to find and wear my long-johns.....iIknow the're here somewherer. I am all excited..........Trivia begins tomorrow......I know a lot of useless knowledge and playing Trivia is the place for is in a bar and we ear and have a drink or two and try to beat the other teams. If we will we get a free T shirt or a round of drinks for the nest session......I can be easily amused......


  1. I know I will be wearing my long johns & overall bibs on Friday when I take care of the animals. Brrrr...they are saying it will be 8 in the morning!!!!!

    I am happy to hear all of the lesions were benign.

    Stay warm!

  2. That was the year we had eleven or so days off from school.

  3. It is colder than billy hell again here in good old Nrbraska. It is nearly 12:00 noon and 6 above zero. We do not live in the north pole but it sure feels like it. I have had lesions removed before and don't mind it but would rather not have them. Lucy
