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 :)

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!!!

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.

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.
