Signed up for a refresher. They seem to creep up faster and faster. Haven't even done one minute of CE yet.
Seems every time I blink...

I submitted my NREMT recert in October. And I am about to finish the refresher course already for my new NREMT.

Got more detailed sleep study results. The night time sleep went fine. But they said during the daytime sleepiness, I fell asleep during all 5 naps. I didn't know I fell asleep for all of them, just maybe 1-2.

He says it could be a different form of narcolepsy, but doesn't present standardly because there's no REM.

He could rx a stimulant like provigil or nuvigil, but with my Vyvanse, it might have bad side effects. He says I could try vyvanse every day rather than PRN and that might help. Otherwise copious amounts of caffeine or getting naps is really only it.

I dare say that Kuiu’s packs are the lightest frame packs available on the market. I think mine stock is 4.5 pounds.
Not bad. I believe mine is a bit over 5. I'm surprised it is priced as it is, the rest of their stuff is expensive.

My pup loves Home Depot. They even gave her a vest to wear when I take her shopping with me. No employee discount though.

My dream p/t job is working at home depot.

I prefer Lowe’s.

I’d work at Sportsman’s warehouse p/t just for the employee discount. Or Ace Hardware seeing as how I spent most of my time at either of those stores.

Naw. I’m content with what I have. Although if I could snag a box of 100 of 5.56 or .223 I wouldn’t complain either. I need to do a range day.

After 6 years of being out of the field, I walked out of the cognitive this AM and thought there was absolutely no way I passed.

Somehow I did. Now to figure out where to take the psychomotor since there's no tests in Az for the next year or if I'm qualified for a provisional cert.

When I get baths, I normally fill up the tub with very hot water and get it barely to the level where it won't burn me. Makes me all pink and warm. Cozy.

I can't take less than hot baths because Ill be shivering and super cold by the time I get it. BMI of 16 and change maybe.

Couldn't have a bath twice because the water got cold. There's an issue with it. Third time, the bath wasn't very warm and the water got cold and I had to get out early.

After Bubble bath 2 attempt, I used up all the bubble bath and decided to buy more at the store after a doctor's appointment while traffic was bad.

I take the bath, wasn't as hot as I liked so I had to get out early. But the bath was an aromatherapy thing and it was nice and bubbly. Smelled good. It was a decent bath.

I got a little itchy in the bath but thought little of it. Happens sometimes, right?

Today I'm itchy all over with a mild rash over most of my body.

Maintenance came for a third time to try and fix the water pressure and heat.

Bath time isn't going well for me lately.

Had a 99 y.o STEMI pt.. I have a feeling the ER thought I was crazy activating the Cath. Lab until they met her. She lived home alone and was in great shape.
