Was a real nerve racking day today.. Beth was put in UAMS last night as they are having problems getting her high blood pressure under control. I called and talked to her when I got home from work today. She is going to stay another night in Little Rock and hopefully they will send her home tomorrow.

Was a very busy day at work. I am ready to relax for the night.

Hope everyone is having a Great Week.

Came home from work and Tony had the Christmas Tree all taken down and packed away. Am sure Baxter is thankful for this as now he doesn't have to put his big nose in it and get it pricked everytime..LOL

A warm day here in Saint Louis. We had a little bit of Severe Weather, mostly lots of rain and wind. I had to come down flooded streets to make it home. Most of the Severe stuff is in Illinois now.

Hope everyone is having a Great Weekend.

Well it is the day after Christmas and we are looking forward to the New Year again. Hard to believe that 2009 is now upon us.

The day here is warm, I went shopping earlier and didn't even have to wear a jacket out.

Talked to Beth this morning and her and the family spent most of Christmas Day at the hospital. She was dehydrated but doing much better now.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Quite Blustery today here in Saint Louis, the wind chill is -4 as I type. Definitely a day for staying indoors and keeping warm.

We were going to spend the day running around town again but decided not too.

We finished decorating the house last night and Baxter couldn't escape from wearing the hat for a few photos. hahahaha He tolerates me well..hahahahaha

Hope everyone had a Great Weekend. I am ready to go to the doctor tomorrow so I will be released to go back to work Tuesday...

Woke up to temperatures in the mid 50's this morning, so the snow is melting fast. The winds are gusting up to 45 mph, quite breezy.
I already am bored with staying home with my injured back. Am looking forward to Tuesday when I can go back to work.
Yesterday morning we woke up to sirens from up the road. A hit and run accident. An elderly gentleman crossing the road to the gas station to get the morning paper was hit and killed. Bellefountaine Road is not the best of roads early in the morning. I always have to be very careful pulling out onto it.
I hope everyone has a Great Weekend!!!!

The Winter Season has definitely started early here. About every two days we get blasted with some form of winter precipitation. I have drove to work two days now on sleet, ice and snow. Tony has offered to take me but I have the attitude that it just isn't gonna whoop me !!!! I only had a few moments of sliding and I was able to control it. We are suppose to have freezing rain tomorrow morning.

I slipped and fell on the floor at work this past week and they sent me for x-rays. Turns out I strained and sprained my back muscles so all is OK. I go back to the doctor this next week.

I took a pic of the tree and Baxter was posing in his chair until a Squirrel running in the yard caught his eye and he decided to turn around and start whining wanting to go outside and chase it.

I hope everyone is have a Nice Holiday Season so far......

This is Christian Hospital where I work. They gave us our Christmas Party today and it was a really nice dinner. We all got a pull along tote for our gift. They had the local school choir come in and carol also.

Yesterday morning I got into my car to go to work but it didn't want to go. Time for a new battery. We kinda figured we would have to do this just didn't know we would have to so soon. But considering I stay late at the hospital several nights a week, I have to have it dependable for me.

We got out the Christmas Tree last night and put it up. We will decorate it tomorrow night. Baxter was busy trying to sniff it but the needles kept poking him in his big nose. Now he walks by it and growls at it everytime. I don't think we have to worry about him messing with it. hahahaha

I hope everyone is having a great week !!!!

We woke up this morning to a thin layer of ice covering everything. This is my day off otherwise Tony would have been taking me to work. Snow is fine for me to drive on but ice is another story completely. We are suppose to warm up to the 50's so it won't be around long although we are suppose to have snow tomorrow.

The photo is the view from the 10th floor of Christian Hospital, the Saint Louis skyline in the back ground.

Tony took Baxter outside this morning and when Baxter hit the ice on the front porch he slide right off the side. He is definitely not used to that. When he went running back up on the porch to come inside he slid into the front door.

With the bad weather I was busy most of my break at work scraping snow off of the car and door as the wind chills were horrible and I knew I didn't want to do all of that at 11 at night when I would be going home. It took several tries to get my door open at 11 but the Security for BJC managed it. The roads were not too bad mostly the bridges and overpasses had black ice on them...Hate that crap...... Glad that I only live about 3 miles from work...LOL
I sat with a patient but most of our time was spent watching the traffic and all the accidents on the overpass of 367, which is right outside the Hospital.
Tony left for work earlier this morning to allow for those icy patches, me well I have the day off. I worked a double shift yesterday and will spend my day catching up on housework.
It is a good thing I have the day off as last night around 10 I decided to eat some chocolate covered peanuts and have a coke and when I got home I guess I was wacked out on that chocolate as I didn't get to sleep until 2 this morning. hahaha
I hope Everyone has a Great Weekend !!!!
