I haven't really been acting myself lately and couple of folks have mentioned this to me. I am functioning decently, just been in this blank state sorta, I guess.
The hospital gets paid bi-weekly vs. monthly like I am used to.
One of the ladies who works at the front desk of the hospital outpatient clinic needed a ride home. I gave it to her. We've chit chatted at "work" during down times and she seemed cool. When we got to her place she invited Pooka and I in and suggested the ordering of pizza. Cool. She's married with 3 kids (10, 12 or 13, and 16), nice spacious house, nice yard, very friendly dog, so forth an so on. What was kinda scary is her personality is super friendly and she is definitely a people person...so are her kids...and the dog! LOL The husband has a traveling job so he wasn't home, but I kinda hope he is a little less friendly to give the household some balance. Now this is just my first impression and thoughts. I keep saying over and over that I need to meet and hang out with new folks and here is a young, black, female, with her own man, with her own ish, with kids so I might add her to my very small social circle. Her 10 year old daughter and Pooka seemed to play well together (Pooka didn't want the leave) and she has already invited us over again. She is one of those folks that is always hosting, always inviting folks over, very open door, very "yeah come on by the house". She said her husband gets on her about that all the time. When she said that in my head I was like "omg, her hubby is going to come home and be mad she done invited someone else to the house and be ill", but she said he was cool when she told him she had people over when he called.
I don't have a set criteria for potential friends, but it's nice to talk to/be around folks that can identify with things you may experience.
Speaking to people is not a problem for me, but I wish I had a touch more of my "coworkers" personality.
I was told again that the boss lady at the hospital clinic would be okay with the class in the fall cuz most of the people that take that job are students trying to get into some kind of medical related grad school.
The food guide pyramid is a crock of ish. So are some of the other stuff America likes to preach about nutrition. I have to look into some of the things I was told myself, but what I heard made sense.
I want a house. I know I am not ready right now to get one, but I want one.
I have a test at 11 that I am not ready for.
I was told the PT I met at orientation was neurotic. I haven't spent much time with her, but I don't see it...yet.
Someone I don't care for has my number and used it last night. Can't be too mad, my name isn't all that common and I am listed in the phone book. Not too hard to find at all. :-(
I babysit tonight. May watch some cable.
I feel like going to a concert. Dave Matthews is coming in July, may have to check him out.
Weekend will be spent cleaning.
