... than I thought it would be.
I was going to do two things: go see SoulShake play in Southlake (that's them on the left (notice the young handsome 'middle man'), then head to the antique mall to play a 'late set' in the tea room....
but I woke up feeling so bad that I didn't do either!
Major headache, and shoulders and back aching big time.
It's been a long time since I've felt that bad. (Life is good.)
Then Sam's back was aching. He could hardly stand up straight. (Now he's in bed sleeping.) (I slept most of the afternoon.)
I ask you, blog readers, could that be a virus???
You all are pretty smart, so let me know.
That makes me think of going to the doctor's office, which makes me think of how I used to want to be a nurse.
I had the Nurse Nancy book (see right), so I had the book and the name, and my Aunt Helen Ruth was a nurse (an R.N.) and since I idolized her, well, it only made sense to want to be a nurse.
My future nursing career was over, though, when I was a freshman in high school.
My twin and I became Candy Stripers.
Anyway, we were Candy Stripers in the Mission Hospital in Mission, TX. (That is a volunteer organization for girls wanting to help out in hospitals.)
On the very first day I found out that nursing wasn't for me.
We had to empty several bed pans, and feed an old man some oatmeal type stuff.
That was it.
On the way home I decided that teaching school was a good dream to have.
Ah, but my son-in-law is a nurse, an R.N.
I so admire him!
I couldn't find a picture of him in his nursing outfit, but this is a good picture....
Well, I must be feeling better if I can blog all that.
Oh, there's a new poll up (upper right)... please vote, thanks!
(Don't forget to let me know if you think we have a shoulder/back virus! (or old age?) Thanks.)
