Good Bye 2008.....Hello '09

So its New Years Eve and here I am at home catching up on blogging. Yes its official - I'm old, and thats okay. I enjoy being at home in my jammies!! So Brad, Cooper, Casey, Charlie and I will bring in the new year probably playing the Price Is Right on the wii.

This year has had some good changes - first starting with me moving hospitals from the Moore campus to the Norman campus. It was the best change I could have made. I love, love, love my job. I love the atmosphere, the people are awesome and the work is easy. And with a new job has come new friends. I have met so many cool people through work. Second is we got a puppy - Mr. Charlie Bean - um what else happened - oh I finally think I've decided what I want to be when I grow up - an ER nurse, hope to return to school in the summer - Brad and I celebrated our 3 yr anniversary, which I can not believe its been that long. My cousin David came to visit us.... Those are just a few big things that fell in between day to day life in the Bridgeford home.

I hope everyone one has a safe and Happy New Year!!

No Excuses!

I am going to start a routine which includes going to the gym and waking up b/f noon. Now this just happens to fall around the new year but it is not a new years resolution. My pants have gotten tight once again and not just regular pants but my pajamas too. You know its bad when your pj's start feeling uncomfortable. I have no excuses any longer now that I have 4 days off a week.!!

I will let you know how this turns out!

The Best Christmas Gift.

So every year when we open our Christmas gifts there is always one that stands out as a favorite. Sometimes its something that you may have asked for over and over and your finally receive it. Or its a gift given to you that you never knew you wanted until you received it. This year Brad's mom gave us a new welcome mat and it was the best gift I've received this year.

Yes people we want to make you aware that we have a killer 13lb mini dachshund living at our house...enter at your own risk.

p.s. it took me many many tries to get this picture!!

Remembering Bob

I was given the bad news Sunday morning that my godfather had passed away Saturday night somewhat unexpectedly. Bob was a wonderful man and I was lucky enough to have him a part of my life growing up. He just lived next door to my parents so when I was younger I would go over there and he would let me play frogger on his computer or we would sit and talk about life and school. He went to a lot of my softball games growing up and he was Santa clause and the Easter bunny long after I knew the truth. He was the one that encouraged me to enjoy reading by giving me a book and a stuffed animal for the holidays during my pre.teen years. He was at all the major events in my life, first communion, 8th grade & high school graduation (8th grade shown above), my wedding, and every single birthday dinner up until a few years ago.

Bob was diagnosed w/ polio at the age of 5 which left him handicapped. He still pursued living an independent life by modifying his truck so that he could drive w/ his left foot. He also graduated from OU w/ an engineering degree. He never married and never had kids and was a HUGE OU football fan. He was diagnosed w/ a heart condition about 6 years back and b/c of his polio the doctors were unable to operate they only gave him a few years to live. Well he lived longer then expected and was in pretty good health considering. Bob passed away on the 27th after falling ill a week before. His mother and his sister were by his side. Even in his last moments he was thinking of others, his sister stated that he was saying "tell my friends I'm sorry I couldn't say good bye." He was the most giving, thoughtful person I ever knew and he will be missed greatly.

Do You Remember When Life Was Simple

I found this list online and it made me have a few flash backs to my childhood so I thought I'd post it to give you guys a memory jog....


Before the Internet & text messaging.

Before Sidekicks & iPods.

Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX.

Before the 5 hours of homework you put off every night.


When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.

When gas was $0.95 a gallon & Caller ID was a new thing.

When we recorded stuff on VCRs & paid $3.50 for a movie.

When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our walkmans.

When 2Pac and Biggie where alive.

When the Chicago Bulls were the best team ever.

Way back......


Get Over Here!!!! means something to you.

Hide-n-Go Seek in the dark.

Red Light, Green Light.

Heads Up 7 Up. (played this game in school a lot)

Playing Kickball & Dodgeball even Wallball.



Tree Houses.

Hula Hoops.

Reading R.L. Stine's Goose Bumps and the Baby Sitters Club.

The annoying Nano Pets & Furbies.

Running through the sprinklers.

Crying when Mufasa died in the Lion King.

Happy Meals where you chose a Barbie or a Hot Wheels car.

Getting the privelage to sit in the front seat of the car.

Drinking Sqeeze It "Squeeze The Fun Out Of It"


Watching Saturday Morning Cartoons in your PJ's still wrapped up in your Garfield comforter.

Hey Arnold



The original Power Rangers

Or what about:

Ren & Stimpy.

Double Dare.

Rocko's Modern Life.


Clarissa Explains it All.

salute your shorts

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

The original cast members of all that.

hey dude.


pinky and the brain.


hangin with mr.cooper.

bill-nye the science guy.

Who could forget Snick? & Nick @ Nite
with Bewitched, I Dream of Jenie, The Facts of Life & I Love Lucy.

Where everyone wanted to be in love after watching
The Wonder Years.



Kool-Aid was the drink of choice.

Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school.

Class field trips.


When Christmas was the most exciting time of year.

When $5 seemed like a million, & another dollar a miracle.

When Toys R Us was the best place to be.

Go back to the time when....

Decisions were made by going 'eeny-meeny-miney-moe'.

Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming 'do over!'

'Race issue' ment arguing about who ran the fastest.

Money issues were handled by whoever was banker in 'Monopoly'.

It wasn't odd to have two or three 'best' friends.

Being old referred to anyone over 20.

A chance to skate as a couple at the local roller rink was like winning the lottery.

Scrapes & bruises were kissed & made better.

It was a big deal to finally be tall enought to ride the 'big people' rides at the fair.

When playing Nintendo was the hardest thing ever.

When Ninja Turtles ruled the world.

When Lisa Frank was the raddest thing ever.

When a candy bar at the grocery store was the highlight of your day.

When the only thing you cried over was your mom being late to pick you up.

When stress was addition and subtraction.

When friendships were as complicated as who's house to sleep over and who's to TP

When shaving cream was just meant for play.

When a first kiss only lead to cooties.

When valentines day meant cards for all.

When birthdays were a class event.

When a friend moving away was the saddest day of your life.

maybe even when your friends didnt break off into different crowds, you were all one group.

Sad Way To Start My Day

So my day at work started pretty crappy today - first this is a sad story from the ER that does not end well - second some background info... yesterday we had a young man who was 17 come into our ER for a psych evaluation w/ his mother. And it is my understanding is that b/c he was a minor we could not admit him anywhere nor was there anywhere to send him, again b/c of his age. Normally if you come in for this type of visit you will either be admitted to our behavioral medical floor in the hospital or to Griffin Memorial Psychiatric Hospital which is like a block away ---- anyways I personally did not have any contact w/ him other then just seeing him pass in the hall but I remember him. Today I came into work and I am notified that he had taken his own life by shooting himself. Now I can honestly say that there is only one other time that a death has bothered me while working in the emergency room - for some reason this one got me - I think it was b.c i just saw him - I remember what his shirt looked like and everything - it rattled me to the core -- it is just so sad that he felt that by ending his life was the only way out and my prayers go out to him and his family and friends.

* it also makes me wonder on how he got his hands on a gun when his parent knew of his mental status - not placing blame - just curious.

Video vs. Reading

Its really ironic when you find that someone else feels the same way you do about something so unimportant in life and they make a cartoon about it. I hate videos on the internet - if you email them to me or post them nine times out of ten do not watch them. I just feel like im wasting my time for some reason, don't know why but I do. Ive never gotten into the whole "YouTube" craze. Then i found this cartoon a few weeks ago and it cracked me up!! - I too am trying to look at the internet covertly at work!! Just the other day I was at work looking on msnbc and there was a story that I wanted to read but all they had was the stupid video - so I was unable to hear about it b/c we are NOT suppose to be on the internet at work - hehehe - and a video w/ sound would have totally blown my cover.

Just a random thought.....

my current craze

currently i am addicted to playing mario galaxy on the wii. if you were ever one who enjoyed the old mario games as a child then i highly suggest this game!! you have to go around collecting stars to open up new planets - some levels are almost 3-D and would look way awesome if i had a better tv. the camera angles are not what you expect which makes it difficult at times when your running upside down. so far ive been able to change into bee mario and a ghost mario to disappear and go through walls and ive completed 2 galaxies.....if you have a wii i totally suggest you check out this game!!

blogging has become a fun thing for me...however i don't know about you guys but i come up w/ my best blog ideas when im trying to go to sleep and then i go and sit in front of the computer the next day and i just get writers block. ive also started reading complete strangers blogs which i find surprisingly interesting. there is one that my friend jaimie follows - probably one of her friends - but its so funny its about his experiences as a waiter - it cracks me up!!

i finally got addicted to my book last night at work - thank god b/c its like 800 pgs - so this week on my days off i am going to make myself read. i have found it so difficult to read when i am at home! i either get bored and find something else to do or i fall asleep. when i worked overnights there was a lot of downtime and i was reading a book a week and i loved it. to me its a sense of accomplishment to finish a book. now i can't read a work as much so im having to find time at home. current read angels and demons by dan brown.

this last one isn't quite a craze yet....but im trying really hard to make it one -- going to the gym! now that i have 4 days off a week there is no excuse for me not to go! i have plenty of time - the first week was awesome! i felt great, i thought about it and wanted to go! the second week i didn't go at all.... i didn't feel good last week so i missed the gym completely. this week im going to try my hardest to get back in there... i have learned i only like to go to the gym by myself. i've tried going w/ friends or w/ brad and i just don't like it! im not as focused and i feel like i have to accommodate them.

Its A Dogs Life

Name: Cooper Maxwell
AKA - weenie, schnooper, cooper the pooper
Age - 9yrs
Hobbies - chasing his favorite ball, laying w/ his mama, swimming, sleeping

Cooper is my first born. He was a christmas gift to me and it was love at first sight! He is a dachshund weimaraner mix from the pound. Crazy mix i know - he is just like me neurotic w/ a slight case of OCD. Cooper is my soul puppy he has been threw hell and back w/ me!

Name: Casey Duke
AKA - dookie, chubbs, k-digz, big K
Age - 11yrs
Hobbies - sleeping, chewing on his bone, barking, sunbathing, seeing how many cookies he can get in one day.

Casey is a beagle basset mix that i picked up off the streets of stillwater. a lady was chasing him down the street when i caught him and took him back to her (thinking he was hers) it turned out she was just getting him out of her trash. so i took him home b/c he had a vet tag on - called the vet found out he had been on the streets for awhile - so i kept him...8 years later and i don't regret it one bit. i have watched his personality change from an independent free spirit to a cuddley love bug!

Name: Charlie Bean
AKA - bean butt, monkey, beans
Age - 10months
Hobbies - running EVERYWHERE, biting caseys back legs, sitting in the window like a cat, chewing on his toys

Charlie is the newest addition to the family - he is a full mini dachshund. i got him b/c my other two were getting older and i thought they needed a little energy to keep them young. casey and charlie actually play together the most its so fun to watch them wrestle w/ one another. charlie is our comic relief - hes always up to something.

my favorite thing in the world is to watch these 3 interact w/ one another. how they play, fight, tease and love each other. they are my fur kids and i don't know what i would do w/o them.

Holiday Rambling

So here i am sitting at the front desk at the ER wondering if this day will ever end..i never minded working the holidays b/c of the fact that my parents and i are the only family here, so we do our holidays on different days - i just feel bad for those who do have to work and have to miss the time w/ their families.

However out of all the holidays - including my - thanksgiving is my favorite!! i love the food - stuffing, green bean casserole, yummy - and the weather!! Christmas is my least favorite!! now maybe its b/c i don't have children and that im too old get excited about santa clause. But i think alot of it has to do w/ that the holiday itself has been taken away and turned into a big marketing mess -- everything this time of year is about christmas - they put out the stuff at the stores at halloween time and the rest is history - thanksgiving has almost become the forgotten holiday....

Well so far things have been pretty quite around here today (knock on wood) .... so i think im going to read my book while i have the chance -- i am trying to read Angels and Demons by Dan Brown -- im only 50pgs into it and i hear its REALLY good -- so i will let you know.

Happy Turkey Day To All!!!
~ and good luck to those that brave the black friday crowds!

people - gah!

So as most of you who read this know i work in the emergency room in registration and everyone bitches!!! first of all let me give you a bit of background - our ER is known for is low wait time and treatment - on top of that we have 9 rooms that are only for minor emergencies such as, tooth aches, back pain, small lacerations - things that may require an x-ray but no IVs - well i had a pt come through discharge today and i told him that his copay for the ER was 50.00 and his response was "50.00 oh and im probably going to get a bill too huh...i wasn't even here but 30 min" like he doesn't think he got his monies worth - he came from the fast track area which means tech it probably wasn't an EMERGENCY and he could have saved some money and just gone to a am/pm clinic - but oh well --- the funny thing is that if he was there for 3 hrs he would have bitched about that - you just can't win w/ the world. i would rather be done in 30min then to hang out there -- duh.

~ please stay tuned for a blog about ER etiquette when i have more time!

Re: response to last blog

We don't have neighborhood markets in Norman :(

we have 2 walmarts which the one i go to is not "far" away but its not across the street like homeland -- we have 4 homelands and a super target and maybe an iga.

just thought i'd share :)

Friday, November 14, 2008

answer me this.....

why is it that homeland cost SO much more than walmart?? this morning i had to go get dog food b/f work so i just ran across the street to homeland and everything is so much more expensive than what i would have paid if i just went to walmart....first of all the dog food i buy iams it usually runs me 18.oo i had a coupon for a new protein iams kind so at walmart it would have only cost me about 15.oo ....HOWEVER homeland did not carry the kind that the coupon was for and it was 22.00 and change and that was b/c i saved 0.69 w/ my homeland card!! so right there im in the hole --- then i decide to wonder to frozens and get some eggo waffels just the small box its like a 1.00 more at homeland not too too bad but still ..... i was going to pick up a tv dinner for work (which may i suggest Marie calenders turkey and stuffing SO good) well at walmart they are like 2.50 at homeland 4.50 - holy crap -- lets do the math

walmart vs. homeland
dog food 18.00 vs. 22.00
Eggo's 1.50 vs. 2.50
Marie calender 2.50 vs. 4.50
total 23.00 vs. 29.00

and i could have used the coupon at walmart b/c i got that food from there b/f so thats another 3.00 savings --- thats like 10bucks!!

and the sad thing is that if homeland had the same prices or even closer to walmart then i would shop there ALL the time i hate going to walmart i much rather go to homeland they actually take your groceries to your car for you!!!

Tuesday, November 11, 2008


i hate being a girl..... and this is one of those weeks if your a girl you know what im talking about -- the past 3 days ive woken up on the wrong side of the bed only to be annoyed through out my day. i wanna cry but i can't which is more frustrating than anything at all. nothing i do or eat or drink makes me content or happy. i have no real reason to be cranky but i am, i want to be in a good mood and i try really hard to be but it just makes me tired ...blah oh well it will always does.

Tuesday, November 4, 2008


Today i voted in my very first presidential election!! When i walked in and got my ballot i was quite nervous, only because there was alot more to it then i had expected. Even though my state is a red state and i voted blue -- i am happy that obama is our next president of the united states and i hope that he does fulfill the change that he promises to bring.

cleaning with reese

well right now im killing time while my ipod died on me in the middle of my bathroom clean and i just don't like cleaning w/o it .... i love my little shuffler i just clip it on and go....puts me in my own little world as i dance around cleaning the house.

does anybody else out there hate cleaning the bathroom as much as i do....i hate it....the smells of the cleaners... which are toxic...and the scrubbing my arm gets tired especially when i have to do all the shower walls...there is always hair everywhere (well if your a girl there is). its just gross!!

so i have 3 dogs and all hardwood floor and my problem has always been that they track dusty dirt into the know like dirt crumbs... i think i may have figured out a solution...i have 2 steps going into my house from the back and i put one of those door mats that has the green plastic grass on it that sticks up. when the dogs step on it the plastic grass rubs the dirt off their feet..... its kinda like them wiping there paws b/f they come in the house -- i know ive noticed a difference in the dusty dirt in my house thats for sure!

today i have cleaned almost my whole house ... you see i have family coming to visit tomorrow and i wait until the last minute possible to get everything clean....and why is it that you wait until guest are coming to clean the weird things the mini blinds or the baseboards like they are really going to notice....

i am obsessed w/ making sure my house smells good... i think its the fact that i have those 3 dogs and i would hate for people to walk in and have dogs don't you....i can smell them.... i will spend money on stuff especially if i like the smell -- old navy has these oil things w/ the wood sticks out of them i can't think of the proper name but anyways they smell so freaking good!!

so i got this new vacuum about a month or so ago and i just love it -- i can't think of what it is but i wanna say its a hoover -- bought it at walmart for like 80 bucks -- i did my research and its got a filter you never have to change you just clean it which i love bc my last one i could never find the f'in filters for!! and its for pets too it has this awesome attachment that picks up the pet fur. i use it on their bed and it works great!!

well i think im going to go back to cleaning i still have a bit to do b/f i can go to sleep.

Saturday, October 25, 2008


i have had the misfortune of living with the fact that i am someone who occasionally suffers from migraines. when i was younger i remember having one and i would put a rag on my head and go to bed and wake up and it would be gone. however as ive gotten older things have changed a little.... i now have the hardest time falling asleep w/ one and i awake very easily once i am asleep...for awhile it would cause me to get sick to my stomach and once that was over my headache was gone and now they hang around for more then one day! i think this is the worse...i got this headache last night at work came home went right to bed woke up 3 to 4 times and then when i decided to get up i still have it!!! ahhhhh.... and now i have to go to work w/ it which is just the worst i just wanna lay one the couch and cry..blah -- hopefully it will be gone by tomorrow.

the beast has let me down again....

so im so frustrated w/ my truck. i don't know what to do -- im desperately in need of a new car........however i suck at saving money for a down payment and my truck is worth next to nothing....

today i was leaving target and my truck makes the horrible noise and i get out and look at it everything looks ok so i start driving and it kinda gets better and then i smell burning and im like great thats it its my motor its finally blown up ... i luckily get it pulled over into homeland parking and look at it and my belt is fried and melted (hence the burning smell) so i call brad to pick me up and im just about to cry b/c im so frustrated --- even though this is a small thing its just something else --- b/f this it was my battery and my blinkers are messed up and its just not reliable any longer -- so what to do??? a friends husband is going to replace it tomorrow for me thank god (my bf is mechanic retarded)--- but then what....wait until something else im just so sick of tired of the beast!

procrastination is my profession

So i can't decide what to blog about but i feel like writing something ... i think b/c im just putting off the inevitable which is getting off my lazy butt and doing something productive. lets see so far today i've woken up at 3pm ate a piece of left over pizza and played around on my myspace read all my emails and now this.... what i should be doing is laundry b/c im out of socks ....dishes b/c im out of spoons and cleaning the bathroom b/c it looks like my makeup drawer threw up all over the counter. blah!

so for good news i did get my vacation time covered which im thrilled about however now ive got plans almost everyday --which is a little bit frustrating b/c its suppose to be relaxing time but oh well it will all work out.

the other night i did end up staying overnight at work b/c someone called in and im actually really glad that i did for two reasons ... the first being i talked by boss into finding someone to work for me on saturday (yesterday) so i would have that day off -- and second b/c i got to see an open tib/fib fracture --which i had never actually seen up close and personal b/f.

there was a hit and run motorcycle accident right by the hospital and the guy broke his leg rt above the ankle. the bone was protruding from the skin so much i could see it all....the shaft of the bone, the spongy bone inside and then there was a tendon that was exposed and of course blood... it was so bad the dr and nurse were not able to feel a pules in the foot by touch they had to get ultrasound doplar thing to listen for it -- he will be okay but did have to have surgery. the police at the time did not have any real leads but did have two witnesses . this is one of the reasons i love my job its so cool and you learn things all the time!

well i guess its time for me to try and get something done....

Friday, October 17, 2008


what is wrong w/ me lately?? i come home from work and stay up until 2am. i set my alarm for 10am which is about 8hrs of sleep and i can't wake up!!! i have not woken up b/f 1230pm this whole week -- and the only day that i woke up that early was today and that was b/c i had to get dog food b/f i went to work -- my normal time to wake has been 130pm.. just enough time to get up, eat breakfast, and get ready to go to work at 3pm. then on my days off i took naps --- wtf! is it the weather maybe??? im not depressed....i cant figure it out -- all i know is that my alarm goes off and i think to myself "eh i dont really have anything i need to do.... " snooze. i really need to be getting up maybe doin a load of laundry or two... oh well hopefully ill snap out of it soon i think that working overnights for 9 months and all that OT i did just threw my whole sleep off completely!

Head Banging Pictures, Images and Photos
so ive been really frustrated at work lately and part of it is my fault. a few weeks ago i worked tons of overtime...ended up clocking 125 hrs in 2 wks - blah well im itching for my vacation that i requested off at the end of this month and it is STILL not approved!!!! that same week that i requested off is the first week that i will/would start my new shift which is going to be Thur/Fri/Sat 11a-1130p. well my manger was like well you could just trade w/ Ellie who works the 1st 3 days of the week (my vaca starts on the 29th) and she could work mine and i was thinking about it that would mean i would work 5 days of 8hr shift and then 3 days of 12hr shift w/ no days off in bw -- i was like i can't do that i would hurt someone - i have the vacation time and if it gets approved then i would have 11 days in a row off thats what i need!!

blah the reason why i may not get it off is b/c we are running on such short staffing and we have been for over a month now -- that would be why i had all that OT -- and then i found out just today that they just now got the budget approved to hire new people -- im like what the F#@K - you just now got approved --- which means they have to interview, hire, and then train (which takes like 2wks) b/f we are going to be fully staffed --- ahhh so frustrating!!

So here I am.....

So i am going to try out this blog thing... i have a few friends on here and i love reading what goes on in there i thought i would give it a whirl....

I have tried the facebook thing but didn't like it b/c all it was was applications and stuff .... i wouldn't check it for 2 days and have like 20 little garden friends to add to my greenie thing and you can't accept them all at once you have to do it one at a annoying!! So if you were my friend i did not de-friend just you but everyone.

I do have a myspace page ( No matter what i just can not live w/o or change from it (i will admit it) -- i actually use it to communicate w/ friends w/ its kinda the 21st century of answering machines, everyone's got one, -- you can just leave a short msg to say "hi", and then wait for them to call back.

ANYWAYS.. I will try this out for now...I will probably post alot at first and then it will probably slow down.
