I learned to do Dad's blood sugar test this morning.
that the hard part is getting blood out of him when I stick him.
His fingers are so caloused!
The gadget that they use to do the analysis is about the size of
smallish calculator. There is a little wick thing that sucks blood
up like those little glass things they use at the doctor's office to
suck up blood.

Today is my last day off before I begin hell week at work. I
will be working the next seven days straight, from 7AM until 7PM and
that is a lot of working! ..especially with Daddy and Eddie
I work a three day workweek normally, with occasional Sundays. I've been working
Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Twice a year, my shift changes places with
the shift on the other end of the week. They work Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
with occasional Sundays. This weekend is when the shifts swap places, so
I'll be working my current shift (Thursday, Friday and Saturday), my occasional
Sunday and then my new shift (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday).
I keep telling myself that the next time we flip ends, I'll get the seven days off.

I got the coolest stuff this Christmas!!! Janet
sent me a calendar of naked women. It isn't your normal pin-up sort of
naked women, they are all in their 50's or 60's, very elegantly posed with
pearls and hats and a sunflower in every photo. They did it for charity
and I love this calendar. Every morning, I sit looking at it
in my *new* pajamas , wearing
my *new* robe (thanks
Mom), sipping coffee out of my *new* Escher
coffee mugs (thanks to Ellen). I feel so
extremely decadent doing that -- it feels good!
The rest of my time, I would like to spend playing with my *new* Pokemon Silver
game on my *new* purple Game Boy Color. Those were my Christmas gifts from
Jason gave me a Pokemon Yellow so I could get a Pikachu.
I'm having a good time solving puzzles, helping Pokemon in distress and planning
trainer battle strategies, but the best thing of all is that Daniel, Jason,
Rodney, Tony and Eric also have the games. We can play together trading Pokemon,
battling with one another and sharing secrets and tips.

I noticed when I was doing the before and after links that I have a
good number of entries that I've written or partially written
since I've last uploaded one. I
will have to take a look at them and see if they are complete enough
I love geeky dates like 011001.
Just noticed that my first on-line journal entry was Jan. 14, 1999.
