trick and treat

The day starts off with me staying in bed AMRAP
As Much Rest As Possible

My first patient of the day

Voting for people confined

Scared a little girl (in a cute kitteh costume)
So I got on the floor - and showed her my real hair...
And she hugged me! So yay for Nurses!

Still liking the protein shake for breakfast...
And 2 double hamburgers for lunch....

my day in pics

My day in pictures.
Yep - that about tells the story!

STILL a better story than I had before!
I decided to keep the job I kinda fell into.
After all, I never really even applied for this position.
They just asked me to help out - during the 4th of July....
And new I stayed on!
We have lost on avg one nurse a week.
I am the only one left!

So it really can only get better from here.

who is carb tripper

Phone got hacked
Took it to the Apple Store... 
X Mas already!

This playground sucks

My one-time fave store

Ant Invasion  
Exterminate - Exterminate!

Shopping and Chopping

Brisket on-the-go

Dinner With Sherri


So yeah - that is about my week!
Crazy business as usual.

Oh - and I bought a winter coat.
I gave mine away (too big)
And got a nice one from the Columbia Outlet Store.

The manager - Hank - is a great guy!
Allen Outlet Stores is HUGE!
I had no idea such wonderful shopping was right there....
Thanks, Hank!

facebook - the cops of the world

Back in the day, people blogged under wonderful names
That required a lot of thought....
Fitcetera was a great name.
Jack Sh!t Getting Fit
Who Ate My Blog
Yumm Yucky

Some of the good blogs were sponsored -
Some were just written by a Fattie ...blogging away the pounds
In a basement somewhere in an anonymous Mid-Western town. 

I have never used any endorsement of any kind.
Any contests or give-aways, I bought the prizes myself.

I have even won a few awards!
But never with any sponsorship of any kind.

Well now, FaceBook took away my Carb Tripper page!
They have a policy that people can only use real names.

Which is crazy - because many people have real-sounding names.....
But they are not real names. I guess they need to ask for I.D.

So - what now?

I don't know!

I think FaceBook is on it's way out -
Kinda like My Space was.
Kinda like Dancing With the Stars 
Was intended for a younger demographic....
But then, really hit home with the Middle-Aged groups!

Most younger people don't use FaceBook so much.
Twitter is good - and Instagram....

I don't really know enough about to decide.
I like FB because of the accountability!
Or else a dozen Egg Rolls would have been eaten already.
By me.
Or Donuts.

My nearly 2500 Friends!

My dilemma this:
When I go to a person's house to deliver nursing care,
They will probably google me.
(I know I would google someone who comes into my house.)

And if my Weight -Loss Blog
Comes up, they will see 100 videos of me
Prancing around, singing 
"Look At Me, I'm Fatty Dee!" (link)
Or "I'm Not Wearing Underwear Today!" (link)

Or like my former boss would say:
Watch the F-Bombs!
(The Devil Wears Prada for sure)
Because they sometimes do slip out.

And while I am not really Over-The-Top Offensive,
I just can't imagine how many ways this could go wrong.

Or  to have anyone say - 
"My Nurse told me to go against Doctor's Orders
And go on Atkins!"

Times are changing, but they haven't gotten there yet!

So- What to do ....what to do....
Any ideas?
In the mean while....
Thanks for checking on me!
