All work and no play....

....Makes me a real pain in the neck. I've been in drill-sergeant mode for soooo long that I almost forgot how to be chill and human. This week has been crazy for more reasons than I have time or energy to write about, leading me to ask a friend..."Is it a full moon or something?" Turns out, it WAS a full moon. I don't usually give much credence to what stage the moon is in, but there really seems to be something about full moon time in February that makes one want to scream for the sheer release it brings.

Sooooo anywhooo....I confess that I spent about an hour playing with blog templates from this website yesterday. I didn't decide on any of them, because I couldn't seem to marry a blog template with a blog header that I liked. It's imperative that I have a butterfly, I think, somewhere on the page...and yet...all that messing around was a little bit therapeutic. Ya know what else is nice? Thrift store shopping. Even when you only spend 50 cents. Because you can buy something like this: Which led me to quip..."It all depends on what's in the mug."

Even better than blog templates and thrift store shopping? That would be when your hubby decides to take serious action against your angsty, crinkled forehead and runs to McDonalds at 10 p.m. for a double cheeseburger, which he serves to you with a glass of wine. He's a good, good man.

It is strange that the full moon does seem to have an effect on people. My craziest times working in the nursing home always happened during a full moon. And then everything would be back to normal again.

I hope you get to chill and be human again soon :)

How can you not have a great day when you use that mug. Oh my gosh! I just love it. To pieces : ) Or maybe not to pieces since I wouldn't want it to break...

Sara.....I was cracking up reading Vanessa's post and was going to say the same thing you did even before I read your comment. It wasn't just in February...it was every time there was a full moon, the residents did just crazy, off the wall things that would make us all look at one another and wonder what in the world was going on. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

I once had a resident open his bedroom window on a full moon and "break out." Thankfully he was okay and we got him back.

The thing I remember most was when one resident got in bed with a woman who was unresponsive and really didn't even know what was going on. Another time one of the residents set off one of the fire alarms.
