>Workin. Sometimes it’s easy (like tonight…I have six patients between myself and a LPN. We have most of our work done already, and it’s not even 5am. I would say all of our work is done, but some of it is time sensitive. F’rinstance, you can’t take an 0600 blood sugar at 0430. You can’t give an 0700 medication at 0430, etc.

Sometimes it’s baaaad, like when I have six patients by myself (total care). This night was one of those that are too easy. As in, it makes me wonder when the pendulum is going to swing the other way. Joke break.

Man: what do you want for your birthday, honey? A trip to Mexico?
Wife: No.
Man: How about a new car?
Wife: No.
Man: How does some diamond jewelry sound?
Wife: Actually, I want a divorce.
Man: Ooh. I really wasn’t thinking of spending that much.

I have been persuaded that my next computer should be a Macintosh. I have always liked Macs better than PC’s, but I have a $800 Bible program that doesn’t have a Mac version. It is Logos Bible Software (www.logos.com). Now I find out that they are in the process of making a Mac version. I just bought a new PC this past summer, so I probably won’t need a new one until sometime in 2008, but it’s good to know that I can make the switch. I know Macs are so much easier to use. Any thoughts?

I have also decided that my next cellular carrier is going to be Sprint. I have talked to many people, and they all say the same thing: “my phone service stinks.” Everybody, that is, except for Sprint customers. I have a buddy that says he has had Sprint for over six years (I think, perhaps longer) and he has never had a problem with them. MY service, OTOH…..I can usually get a good signal everyplace but IN MY HOUSE! I was over at his house for the AFC Championship game and found out that I can’t get a signal there either (on the main floor of his house, which is on a hill). We had great service with US Cellular, and we would still be with them, except for the fact that they aren’t able to provide service in Indianapolis. So when we moved here, we had to pick a new carrier. I decided between Verizon and Cingular, and went with Verizon.

Here’s how my decision making process went: I went to the Verizon store, and the Cingular store, and asked them each the same question: Why should I choose your service over the other guy? The Verizon salesman talked about their reliability, coverage, network, benefits, available technology, etc. The Cingular salesperson said, “You should choose Cingular because we have cooler phones.”. So I chose Verizon. Bummer was that I had to sign a 2year contract. That contract is up in June, and Sprint, here I come!!!
