We had two 16 year old girls come in by ambulance last week.
It was lunch time and the nearby high school kids are taking off like crazy to all the nearest fast food joints.
There was a minor fender-bender.
These two little sophomores were a little shaken up but unharmed.
Paula and I took care of them. (Paula is the nicest, sweetest nurse ever!)
A while later Paula comes out to chart and starts giggling. She's trying not to giggle.
I look at her quizzically.
If it's funny it must be shared....that's an unwritten law.
We thrive on funny in the ER.
She says she was doing the typical triage and asking the million questions we ask.
Paula: "are you allergic to any medication"
16 year old: "uh no"
Paula: "have you had any surgeries in the past?"
16 year old: "no"
Paula: "When was you last period?"
16 year old: "Seminary"
OK maybe I'm tired...but it's been a week and I'm still laughing about it.
So, in other news:
I'm sunlight deficient.
I feel a RANT coming on.
Stay tuned for another edition of Ask-A-Nurse
So hurry and be sure to ask your questions...but use may NOT want to hear the answers.

Pretty Dang {FABULOUS} Recipe

I don't post recipes often cause I feel that there are such fabulous cooks out there that I have nothing to offer.
This is the yummiest recipe I've ever had.
I've never made French Dip, but I did it on Sunday and it was so good I am making it again today!

Best French Dip Evah!
1 rump roast (mine was about 3-4 pounds)
1 package au jus
1 package of manwich sauce (just the dry stuff)
3-4 C water

Put in crock pot on low for 6-8 hours.
Serve with a Bullio or hard roll.
It was so easy! So tasty! I felt like Martha Stewart or Ree (aka Pioneer Woman)

Give it a try. Hope you like it.

My heart hurts...

My third oldest called me a few moments ago.
He told me of a dear friend that he was priviledged to know in Japan. My son served his mission there.
Jamie was in the Navy stationed in Japan.
Nate (my son) was able to baptize Jamie.
Jamie later went on a mission for the church.
Nate kept in touch.
Jamie was married about a year ago.
My phone call from my son a few moments ago was to tell me that Jamie was killed a few days ago.
My heart is hurting for his little bride and I don't even know her.
All I know is that Jamie was a wonderful man and he treated my missionary son like a wonderful friend.
She shares a beautiful tribute.

I {heart} rubber gloves!

Weird I know.
But rubber gloves turn me into Superwoman!

I have awesome ninja rubber glove skillz!
I {heart} rubber gloves.
Without them...I couldn't do what I do.
I would cease to exist.
I can do anything that normal humans wouldn't even consider doing.(yes, I am implying that I'm abby-normal)

I haven't tried leaping tall buildings with a single bound....yet.
I love rubber gloves
Rubber gloves have helped me get through many unpleasant experiences.
We've been through a lot together.
Much unpleasantness....which I shall refrain from discussing in great're welcome.
I only wish my nose were DEAF!

In your best {Napolean Dynamite} voice.....

Say the word "IDIOT!"
Who is the idiot? ME!
The reason:
9:00 church I love 9:00 church
Well, OK it's not totally 9:00 churchs fault. It's late Saturday night fault.
OK, maybe it isn't late Saturday nights fault. I should just accept responsibility for my own actionsbut it's so painful to accept responsibility
Anywayz.........on with the story.
Early church+LONG afternoon nap+


I was awake ALL NIGHT LONG!
OK, let's say it again......"IDIOT"
