It is hot and humid again. To hot for a ride. To hot for cooking, to hot. To cool myself down I thought I would share a couple of pictures. It makes the weather seem not that bad after all,
There, now don't you all feel better. Those pictures where taken just 4 months ago!
Work was simply awful last night. 4 terrible nights in a row. I think I sent a patient to ICU each night. The nice thing about working in ICU is you get 1 to 2 patients. I was taking care of very critical patients 6 to 7 at a time with a couple of them straddling the fence all night. I am mentally exhausted today and Oh so ready to just chill. Back to the grind tomorrow. My boss had the gull to ask why no one made it to supper and had overtime. For one thing, there is no place to go at night to take a break, the cafeteria is closed. We don't have the staff to have someone off the floor for 1/2 hour. We were really really busy saving lifes and making her look good. They insisted we all stay a extra half hour without pay and take a supper break. Since they implimented this 4 weeks ago I have been able to take a break twice. They don't want to pay us overtime for not getting to supper so they are always refusing to pay up. I told my boss if she could do what I did this weekend and take a break and get out on time I would give up my overtime. I know she won't take me up on that.
My son is stiff and sore today but happier then I have seen him for awhile. Happily no one has gotten killed so far on RAGBRAI but there have been some accidents. None life threatening. Usually at least one person dies because they tried the ride without training for it and sometimes a car decides they are tired of waiting and plows into a bunch of riders.
I am eating out today. To hot to cook. My books should be here tomorrow. For today, I am relaxing. Check out the tomatoes I just picked, they are the sweetest I have ever grown. Great on salads.
