100% agree that we?re seeing extreme weather events become more common. Multiple ?100 year? eventsnow occurring within the same decade, it?s nuts. My middle nephew said it best last week, it?s so hot this summer and it?s sad that this is probably the coolest summer of the rest of his life.

QJB-Sorry to hear your day was a bummer yesterday. What kind of jobs are you looking for?
In the office today. I am part of a Nursing Wellness Committee. Today I delivered a bunch of cakes to different ancillary departments as a thank you for their service. Without these staff members Nursing couldn't do the jobs we do. We have split up the different departments to celebrate throughout the year (think housekeeping, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, sterile processing in the OR, lab, pharmacy). Many of the departments don't receive the recognition that they deserve. We are trying to improve morale and comradeship. One more day of work before leaving for OH conference! It looks like low to mid 70s temperature wise in Costa Mesa. Wi**** was a little warmer but I guess I will be indoors 2 of the days I am there.
QOTD: I do dream. I don't always remember the dreams but remember that I did dream. When I first started taking melatonin I would get these crazy dreams, which I kind of liked.
Accountability: a few extra sf chocolates
Meals are the usual yogurt and salads, protein frosty, sf chocolate
E: weights and yoga
Have a terrific tuesday.

I am looking for HR positions - hopefully in the Ed Tech industry, but that's where I discovered there aren't many options available at the moment, so I am just trying to be open to anything that sounds interesting.

I'm so looking forward to the cooler temperatures! Maybe because it's supposed to be back up to 86 here next week.

QJB - I saw it on the news the flooded town in MA and thought of you guys. It looked scary. Stay safe and dry. You just started your search for a new job, give it time and don't get discouraged.
We had a power outage last night for almost 7 hours. Midnight to 7:00 am. No reason and no communication. Most of the power lines in our neighborhood are under ground, the main line when you get off the freeway is up and sometimes if a tree goes down takes out the power in the hole neighborhood. But that doesn't seem the case. The other reason sometimes they do roll out blackouts due to heat but it's not that hot. So all electronics were beeping and panicking after the aux batteries were drained and our security alarm kept telling us we have no power. This morning I checked on the neighborhood gossip sites and nobody could come up with an explanation. The good news is we got power restored at 7:00 am so work can be done. For the rest I just wait to hear the gossip.
QOD - funny you asked. I woke up this morning with the happiest dream in my head. I dreamt my brother and sister and I were on a three way call. I was so happy because my brother & sister haven't talked to each other for almost 10 years due to disagreements over our other brother's last days at the hospital. So yea, I dream and most of the times I remember them. Some times they are more vivid than others.
My meals yesterday:
- TJ kebab w/Fage yogurt
- Ice coffee w/PP, epic chicken
- Baked chicken Parm
- E: 6 miles Wog + HIIT
Happy Taco Tue.

Good morning! QJB, are we sharing the same sleep and splitting it indecisively? Terrible night sleep over here. Or more like what sleep. But, I got both my Covid and flu shot yesterday and I'm blaming part on that. My arm is very sore. I got them both in my right arm. This morning I am not %. More like 93.4 percent. Just a little off and my voice is wonkier than normal. I'm not complaining. That's not bad at all after two vaccines. I should be my normal perky self by tomorrow.
Today I have only PT planned. The weather is cooling off significantly and the humidity is expected to do a deep dive. Yay.
QoTD: I dream in huge, technicolor, Gone with the Wind type dreams. They last for hours and sometimes last for days or months. I remember lots about them when I wake up and I'm always trying to interpret what or who I saw that triggered certain things. My dreams are full of people I do not know and everyone is fully fleshed out with personalities and backgrounds in them. It's only vary rarely that I can match up a person or thing in a dream to something that happened in my day. Occasionally, I will dream about all the kids and that is sure to start me out on the right foot and in a great mood for the day.
B: TJ's shaved beef and sautéed onions and mushrooms from last night. I made it too salty, but it's very yummy.
L: today I will eat the leftover from the pork chop!!!
D: meeting friends at our best burger joint in the village. So insides of burger and few fries. My goal is to not drink wine, but I shall have to either confess to failure or revel in successful glory on tomorrow morning's thread.
