My lazy start to Saturday...What do you have?

Recommended Posts

Early to bed...early to rise!  Headed to bed tired last night after my my restless night Thursday...a little after 9pm

Up and at it a little after 6... went through a pile of paper crap that seems to accumulate on my kitchen counter...while my water was heating for tea...I also tossed a few old teas that had just tiny bits left or they were flavors I just wasn't gonna finish...I may need an emergency trip to Tea Source :cheerleader:

Watched "Wisconsin Foodie"...he was (yeah somewhere in Wisconsin) at the Norsk Inn or some place like that..where pie is a big deal...I believe he helped make a raisin cream (it was already in the pie pan when I tuned in) with a HUGE Meringue on top..like a foot high.

Now it is Martin Yan and Asian food and travel...and I am set to make some breakfast.

According to a text last night...I am going to the gym :dontknow: at 10am..... my Cheesehead friend is visiting for the weekend.

Ice riding is out. 

I'm going out to the garage and work on the cylinder head for my son's race bike.

We drove in to my MIL’s and my wife downloaded some work for Monday morning. Then we went to the Golden Trough for breakfast. Now we are getting hair cuts and wife is getting a perm.

I've got a new bike so I am tuning the brake rotors and making some changes to the gearing configuration. In between shoveling snow, that is.

What!?!?  Did I miss a post? Got any pics to share?

I've been feeling really lousy the last few days.  Working out and doing projects has not made me feel any better, so I think I am going to do as little as possible today, really veg out like I used to do and see how I feel tomorrow.  It will be hard to do, but it's worth a try.   :)

Let me know if you need any pointers!  You have to pace yourself!

Getting out of the parking lot at the hockey game took a freaking  long time so I didn't get to bed until midnight.  Then thunder woke me up around 3 am, Jack woke my up at 5:30 for Bfast.  I fed him, went back to bed and got up at 8:30.  Drinking my first cup of joe and sorting out my day.

I went to bed just before 10:00 pm and didn't really get up until 9:00 am with waking up twice in middle of night.  Took several hrs. to return to sleep but now feel refreshed.  I had to conquer my sleep debt.

Time to bike out and do light shopping.

After coming home from JFK I napped a lot yesterday and then went to bed a bit after 8pm dead tired.  Got up at 3am of course.  I've already done the groceries and a roast chicken is in the oven.

Not yet. I'll finish and get you something in a couple of days. I'll post in the bike forum. If I can find it. :)

Late to bed and early to rise for me.  Bunch of crap is what it is.  Stupid pharma medical insurance gal called about refills. OMG.  I had already picked them up. Now I'm awake reading this forum.

Was so looking forward to the weekend.  Ended up coming in for a crisis.

Don't you wonder how they would go on without you solving the crisis?  I know this is hard to take but 'they would go on' without you solving the crisis.  And if you really are all that omnipotent, then their business model sucks not having multiple folks with the abilities to step up and solve the crisis.  In fact, if they are so dependent on you to 'solve the crisis' then they deserve to fail.  Just sayin'.

I'm amazingly useless.  I only worked on the administrative part of trying to keep the hospital notified of what's going on and reducing the workflow here.

It's a gesture that staff will never forget.  If you come in, you showed support.  If you stayed home, you didn't care.

I, and everyone here, is replaceable.  I know my place.  Plus, it's my place, so I need to be here.  We're huge, one of the biggest and best in the world.  We don't take these issues lightly.

It's just a reminder to take care of yourself and put yourself first sometimes. I'm pretty sure every company I've worked for was the center of the universe and the earth was going to burn up if we didn't deliver on time or we didn't go the extra mile. Take pride and responsibility in what you do -- just don't be a sucker.  My latest company actually said, "You can make 2 or 3 times as much as you are making with us if you go somewhere else, but we're a WORLD CLASS organization and what matters to me when I wake up in the morning is that I get to work for a WORLD CLASS organization."  OMG.  Barf bag please.

We're not a company, we're a hospital.  I get it, we make millions or billions too.  Actually, most of that goes to the pharmaceuticals.

If Pfizer doesn't do their job in a timely fashion, stockholders get grumpy.

If we don't do our job well, you, or your loved one dies. 

We're not a community hospital, we're a Harvard Medical School Academic Medical Center.  That comes with tremendous responsibility - a responsibility I accept.
