Moby has never been one to sit on laps. I can count the number of times he has done so. He'll sit on the armrest of the couch closeby, or on us if we are in bed lying down, but not next to us sitting up. Until the sheepskin. D and I can sit here, and Moby will take the other half...
Hard freeze, more snow flurrying, nothing of yesterday 's snow stuck down here, although the mountains are white. Not unheard of, but not all that usual, either. In Boston, to be expected. In Detroit, I saw it snow on the first and last days of school (the kind of thing a weather-geek-kid would remember), which is to say very early June, and very late August, so an April snow there is just barely cause for comment. May snow, that will be pretty odd, here.
This is not like a Boston spring. The winds won't bite all day, the snow won't turn to ice underfoot for a week, tomorrow could be mild. The atmosphere isn't thick enough to maintain a constant temperature.
Finding myself letting the little irritations bother me this week. The drivers who can't stay in their lanes, nor come within a car length of the line at the intersection. Or the ones who brake for GREEN lights. Scares me, and notifies me of an idiot behind the wheel. Possibly exacerbated by cell phones/texting.
Also had to try to teach a float nurse our computer charting last week. She just couldn't get it, not from several of us who tried over several days. Each day was a new day for her, to the point that I wonder if she should get checked for, say, early onset Alzheimer's. We all struggled with the new charting, but within a day, or about 4-6 charts, we all pretty much had it down, bar the swearing (which continues, to be honest.) The one thing that really drives me nuts with the computer-hesitant is the insistence on using the little slider in the slider bar, instead of clicking in the long bar to page up or down. To the point that they won't even try for the larger target. And I know I used to frustrate D with my inability to use shortcuts, but I did, at least, try. I did eventually use some of them.
