Flu Fighter

Today our local school district held their H1N1 flu clinic. When the notification went out, they also asked for volunteers to help work the event. May as well pitch in. It was rather fun being a nurse again. I got to be one of the staff doing the immunizations. So glad I didn't get assigned to the screening, that's where the real work was going on. I did about 45 vaccinations and spent the morning with some great people.

Another way to lose some time

Let me introduce you to this little television series that will make you lose a big chunk of time. Seriously, the blame is completely on the man around here for getting me started. Don't be concerned if you don't have cable or Showtime. You can find this little number on Netflix or other rental outlets. I cruised through season one in a weekend...and yes, I did find a few minutes to interact with family and friends that weekend. There is no jumping in during the middle of this series. It's mandatory that you begin with season one episode one. You'll only be cheating yourself if you do it any other way.
Warning. This should not be viewed with any children or delicate elderly people around. It's a no-holds-barred deal.

Out with the old

Worn, cracked, taped, and stiff gear.

In with the new.

Pretty, soft, flexible, metallic plum gear.

Nearing the end

Alana usually starts about a month early getting ready for Halloween. Much thought goes into the costume and details. Not so much this year. Wore a cape that she borrowed from a friend and some black clothes. Didn't do the teeth that Dad got for her. Didn't want the face make-up. Settled for the spider web tattoo on her face and some white streaks in her hair.
She had a great time at the party that the local Kiwanis club puts on every year. Ran around with her girl buddies and did the hayride. Yet, I can tell that the specialness of Halloween is getting ready to pass.
