An Anal Moment

Ok, so everyone has bloopers at work or at home. Some people keep their bloopers hidden and some people find quiet humor in them and chuckle to themselves. Now, me.....I laughed my butt off and PUN INTENDED. I was rushing to get a set of vitals from an older man who was pretty darn sick. I grabbed my vitals cart, went to the patients room and began my initial assessment but realized I didn't have my thermometer. I went to a drawer where I knew there were extra thermometers and quickly took one of the older ones. As I was taking the patient's temperature, the nurse walked in at just the right time and grabbed the thermometer out of my hand and quietly said, "Notice the red top on this thermometer?" I really hadn't noticed the top of the thermometer because it was an older one and I didn't know what the older ones looked like because mine is nice, new and white and is the only one I had used since I had been there. Well, come to find out.....the red tipped thermometers are for anal temperatures and NOT oral!!!!! So there it is, my work blooper exposed for all to get a little laugh at. I stuck a probe in an old guy's mouth that was probably in another old guy's butt. YUCK.

Girls Temple Day

So, we made plans to have a girl's temple day in Rexburg, Idaho and here we are. I was up at 4 am and ready to go by 445 when Deidre said she wanted to be gone. We were at Tara's house in plenty of time then off to pick up Jen. Jen is NOT a morning person so kudos to Jen for being out the door in a timely manner. We stopped at the Lone Pine Conoco to get some drinks and snacks when Jen realized that she did not have her purse with her.....No money, license, recommend, etc...We turned around and trucked it back up Skalkaho to get her purse. We were 45 minutes behind schedule but it's all good. We were all sharing our stories about how, in our minds, we tried to justify why each of us shouldn't go. It's so easy to make excuses. I'm thankful we didn't listen to that inner demon and we all went.

And speaking of "went" this is a great picture of us putting up a makeshift bathroom so we could go. I got the best picture of Tara peeing and told her that it would be on my blog and then I had second thoughts when it came time to put the pics on here. Love her too much to post that picture. It will come in handy around Christmas, I'm sure.

This is Deidre taking pictures of us flashing our backsides to freeway traffic...but we had to go and there was no other place to stop.

This is Jen and Tara, they were putting their make up on in the car. We had plenty of laughter and silly moments on this road trip.

This is us outside the temple. We had a great time. It was a super experience with some great friends.

What do you think?

Alrighty.....I am trying to play with the settings on my camera. I am also discovering the art of Picasa (thanks my Jenny love) and so what do you think of this picture of the boys? I will post a few more and you have to tell me what you think of these totally raw, first time photos that I have taken. I want a super nice camera for Christmas because I think I have found a new love! Oh, but not to replace my Jenny love. LOL :)

General Conference

Today we started out our General Conference morning, honoring Grandma Passey and made conference cakes with homemade buttermilk syrup. So here we are enjoying general conference. The kids had little quizes to complete, word searches, matching games and the super fun.....conference bingo! That one is my favorite.....I get all intense, constantly shooshing the kids so that I can hear what's being said and I listen for the bingo words.

After the first session of conference we made indian tacos with chili, cheese, lettuce and sour cream. I made banana chocolate chip bread from scratch.....yah me! It was a great day.

My Friend Jen.....

Ok, this is a totally random picture but I had to post it anyway. This is a bunch of us at a digital photography class. I learned some really cool new camera tricks. I've been wanting to ditch my digital camera but now that i've had some light shed on my picture taking abilities.....I'm much more excited to use my camera and if you know me.....I love to take pictures. I always have my camera in my purse. Now I just want a bigger, fancier one.....SANTA!!!
