My day

Today for me was a "Martha Day"...or perhaps a "Rachel Ray" day. I awoke pretty early but yet late for me. It was 8am,,,I started fussing in the front room. I have decided I still have way to much stuff,,,From old pictures to clothes,,,I have 5 white turtle necks,,,No one needs 5 of those,,,I can see 3. I again need to go threw my clothes and part with more,,,I am beginning to think less is best. I have discarded so many sweat shirts and sweat pants,,,I only need 2 sets of my favorite of those. I did go out and get a pair of lined jeans today,,,I figured for the winter with the mail and skiing they might come in handy. I started cooking by 11am,,,I whipped up a large and small pan of baked Zita,,,one for the funeral and one for a friend. Then I made another big pot of Chili,,,not your ordinary type,,,this was with ground Turkey and 3 different types of beans and yellow,,red,,orange peppers,,,also green tomatoes,,,It came out assume,,,and a loaf of corn bread. I kept a small container for my self,,,gave {J's} Mom,,a container full and some corn bread. I then went to my friend Linda's,,,she was working at PO and I put Zita/Chili/Cornbread in her fridge for her and her families supper. Headed up to the nursing home to see my patient,,,she was down in the dumps again,,,and in her PJ's at 4pm,,,,She was depressed about that,,,they new I would be bitching in a few and told me she spilled pudding on her self so they got her in her night clothes,,,,guess it was too much to put a dress on her or a skirt,,,she also was scratching like she had body lice,,,,I gave her a shower and shampoo yesterday and covered her numerous rash with Gold Bond and set her hair and gave orders no shower on Monday,,,I will give her it again, They use one type of soap for body and hair and only shower once a week,,,,I use Dove Hyper-allergenic,,,and my expensive hair products. Well they gave her a shower,,,Her hair looked like crap,,,first thing I did was correct her rash,,,,comb her hair,,,and put a sweater on her with a blanket as a lap throw,,,she felt a little better but still way down in dumps....Her nephew Jason was there,,,her Great nephew,,,I get along good with him,,,I don't let his mental disorder of schizo get out of hand,,,I think I relax him,,,and all the demons go and he feels safe with me,,,,he was going to go to Florida to see his folks but after calling me the day before decided to hang out home and come to the nursing home to keep me company,,,,humm how nice. Usually {J} has a freak in cow any guy calls me at home but with him he is ok,,,Which is funny,,,he is a good looking 42 year old man,,,but he is like family to me,,,,even thou {J} has never met him and refuses to. Other people at the home I feel very sorry for,,,The married couple that are in their 80's,,,he has dementia and hard of hearing,,,,she has mood swings. Another very nice couple,,,He has Parkinson disease at a young age,,,he is 60 and looks 50,,,She is always by his side,,,He comes out hopefully this weekend and that will be my new case. Not sure of my hours yet,,,also 2 other people have asked for my number and rates,,,I am going to be so busy. So for now my breather is very nice. I wish I could win a few million and build a big one level home with many rooms and take in the helpless and lonely,,,and provide good care for them,,,perhaps like 8 residents,,,maybe 10 but I want to provide excellent care and I think with 10 that might be to much,,,even with staff,,,my staff would be 3,,,A dream I hope someday to fulfill besides doing the mail,,,,,,,ugh which is on the morrow.......Happy Trails!!!!%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
An elderly couple were driving across the country. The woman was driving when she got pulled over by the highway patrol.
The officer said, "Ma'am did you know you were speeding?"
The woman, hard of hearing, turned to her husband and asked, "What did he say?"
The old man yelled, "He says you were speeding!"
The patrolman said, "May I see your license?"
The woman turned to her husband once again and asked, "What did he say?"
The old man yelled, "He wants to see your license!"
The woman gave the officer her license. The patrolman then said, "I see you are from Arkansas. I spent some time there once and went on a blind date with the ugliest woman I've ever seen."
The woman turned to her husband and asked, "What did he say?"
The old man yells, "He said he thinks he knows you

A woman was sitting at a bar enjoying an after work cocktail with her girlfriends when an exceptionally tall, handsome young man entered. He was so striking that the woman could not take her eyes away from him.
The young man noticed her overly attentive stare and walked directly toward them. Before she could offer her apologies for being so rude for staring, the young man said to her, "I'll do anything, absolutely anything, that you want me to do, for $100, on one condition."
Flabbergasted, the woman asked what the condition was.
The young man replied, "You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words."
The woman considered his proposition for a moment, took some money from his purse, and gladly pressed it into the young man's hand.
She looked deeply into his eyes and slowly and meaningfully said, "Clean my house."
