I have a bit of a problem with putting things off, and telling myself that I will do it later. Later always seems to become 10 minutes before said project is due. My ulcers flare, I feel sick, my heart starts to race, my head hurts. Then, I pull it all together like the rock […]Read More Cherie, The Queen of Procrastination No More
I received an exciting notification a few days ago. WordPress let me know that I had reached 500 followers on my little blog. It’s amazing really, since only a handful of those that follow me are people that I have met in real life. Most I have never met before! Well, not yet anyway. We […]Read More 500 Followers

Many things are similar, like the landscape and weather. Although, the weather here seems a bit milder than my Michigan home, and the landscape is much […]Read More And Another Thing: More of my Observations From Germany
This summer has been perfect. It has been a summer like the ones I had as a child. It’s hard to think of a time that I have been happier, except as a child during the summertime. The temps have been high, sometimes nearing 100F and we have had sunshine for days on end. (OK, […]Read More Germany in the Summertime: Bathing Suits.
Not all ER stories are death and tragedy. Some are pretty damn funny. This is one of them. (Of course any names or locations are always changed). I was of course working the night shift, as I did for so many years. That night, I was working with some of my very favorite nurses and […]Read More Nurse Memories: An Alleged Assault With a Ceramic Chicken and a Request For Dental Molds.
