Just finished deep cleaning the stove top. I accidentally boiled over a pan of crowder peas making dinner last night and that created quite a mess. The top was due for a good cleaning anyway, so the boil-over just moved up my timing.

It was pretty easy because I sprayed all the loose parts (grates, etc.) with oven cleaner and sealed them up in a heavy plastic bag before I went to bed last night.

All I really had to do this morning was spray the top and wash the stuff in the bag. Took only about 15 minutes to have the stove looking like new.

Now...I'm getting ready to make some challah bread so we can have French toast for breakfast tomorrow. Yum!

I'm cleaning the fridges, making pita bread, emptying some boxes, reorganizing my bedroom and climbing Mt. Laundry. Oh, I have to do the burner rings and pans I brought home from the farm. I did the same thing--sprayed them and put them in a plastic bag overnight.

Just got up after a bad pain night. We are going to see a colleague of DH's who lives in our complex. He has a leather sofa he is getting rid of and wants us to have it. Just what I need - more furniture! But it will go at lease temporarily into DH's office.

I called the pharmacy. the idiot could not grasp what I was telling her. She told me I needed to talk to my doctor. And I will. I am going to go in first thing Monday morning. The first time they screwed up they gave me meds for advanced Alzheimer patients. I was throwing up really hard for three days and it put a tremedous strain on my heart. My middle son finally called Winthrop. Had I continued taking the wrong mediciine, I would have been dead the next day. They changed their whole system around to bar coding. I filed a complaint with the State agency that oversees pharmacies. I have refused to have that particular pharmacist do any more of my meds. I saw her name once more and sent the whole bunch right back. I ended up without any meds for three days before they got it straightened. Another complaint to the State. We'll see what happens on Monday.

Actually, I'm the last resort since I no longer work the floor. The night shift is seriously short of RN's at this time. I'm able to be there and get my work done at the same time. It's a supervisory position and they pay me accordingly. By law there has to be an RN in the building.

I hope you're banking the extra pay for that dream kitchen in your dream house! Not to mention "THE CLOSET."

It does get banked, I do hope to retire at some point.

In this state, it can be an LPN on duty so they can dispense medications.
