You in Love: Relationships are your top priority, and this includes love. You are most happy when you are serious with someone.

Your Career: You need to help others in your job to feel satistifed. You would be a great nurse, psychologist, or counselor.

Dear Diary Tuesday...

I didn't go to the hospital last night....I think this week we might be taking a little "break" from hanging at the hospital as much as we have in the past as, I think, everyone is just tired and a little depressed over the situation. She is "status quo" right deterioration but no improvment either. I am not sure what the doctor's have in mind other than giving her "time" to see what happens. She now has had all of the tubes removed, other than her breathing tube and her I.V.'s. And my other cousin goes into see a cardiologist today to see what is going on with her. So, I am hoping that this week is going to be a little more quite than it has been.

Last night I got home and started watering the yard and, while that was going on, multi-tasking and making dinner for Dylan and I. We had a nice dinner, I watered the yard, updated my brother's resume' and finally decided it was time for bed. As I was walking into the bedroom, Coal decided to cut in front of me and I stepped forward (kicked out) at the same time his hind leg was crossing in front of me and accidentally "kicked" him the leg bone....and either broke my toe or dislocated it. Either way, IT HURT! I put a heating bag on it all night and today it just feels "weird"....I can't really describe it other than to say it feels like it is not attached to the rest of my foot but a separate entity with a separate pulse.

Tonight, Dylan and I are watching the season finale of Ultimate Fighter and getting "take out" and relaxing. Tonight is the only night he doesn't go in early, so we are going to try to enjoy our one night together this week. He is planning on working OT every night this week, not taking any day off, right through next week. Might as well take advantage of all the OT they are offering since it is a rarity that they offer ANY!.

Dear Diary Monday....

It was a long, long weekend....exactly what I was expecting.

My brother and sister-in-law made it into town. I spent time at the hospital. I took my parent's shopping for groceries. I got some things done around the house. Dylan has been working crazy over time because two member's of his team have had death's in their end in sight right now on his OT. Spent more time with the family and at the hospital. Not interesting, very exhausting, but it was good to see my brother, even if it was for only short, sporadic visits. He is extending his stay a bit longer than he had planned (he was only coming in for this weekend and then leaving) so it will be good to see him. My cousin is doing a tiny bit better, but still only a 20% chance of survival at this point. My other cousin in Washington is now having to see a cardiologist this week....they think she either has a heart condition or she has had some heart attacks....won't know more until later this day. Gawd, it will be good when things get back to "boring".

Oh, and my sprinklers are all fucked up and I am taking Friday off to have somebody come out and fix them. Until then, I will be up most of the night watering my lawn and plants to make sure nothing dies.
