Nurse Noojes

Week 52 always promises some sort of excitement in my life...

I thought that cervical spondylosis would be enough for me to end the year with but there were other plans laid out for me

Yesterday in the morning as I was undergoing my treatment for my spondylosis I left my mobile phone in my bedroom

When I got back an hour later there were frantic sms's and numerous missed calls from Mr Friend

His sister had just been a car accident - where the brakes had failed and some kind stranger on the street was rushing her to hospital

Mr Friend was out of town and had no other family in the city so us friends rushed helter skelter across the city to asssess the damage and take the precautionary measures

Little did we realise that the damage would include injury to the face and mouth which called for emergency surgery that night

I held the girls hand through all the x-rays and doctor appointments and carried her when she almost fainted at one point during the day

The funny part was I didn't have the time or inclination to think about my own spondylosis pain

Two days of feeding mashed food and an innumerable number of colourful pills are finally over

Her brother came back this morning and she has gone home

And as relieved as I am that she left my home safe and rested, I can't help but miss the insanity of the last 48 hours

Happy 2007 everyone

In my stocking I got...

Yup, thats what Santa gave me for Christmas this year...

I am in acute pain and have restricted movement in my neck and shoulders

That really put a damper on my Christmas celebrations

This is the second or third time in my life that I have been hit by cervical spondylosis and trust me it is no fun at all

But I tried to have fun yesterday and put on a brand spanking new dress and a face and went to Christmas eve dinner

After I survived as much pain as my body could take I came home and slept only to be rudely awoken by the sharp pains running through my body

That made me get a Christmas gift from my dad today though

A new pillow ;)

Merry Chrismukkah all

Pondering at the end of the year

Its the end of the year and while everyone is in Christmas cheer I find myself pondering over the year that has gone by...

This year has been interesting in so many ways

I got promoted
I got promoted again and changed professions

I travelled to the Carribean and saw my friend not only married but with a child

Another friend married

My boss / mentor moved onto much larger roles in life

I started to care for new people that I met in my life

Some others I cut out of my life

I saw temples in India that I never knew existed

I have done many new things this year - some I am proud of and some I am not

I have experienced new emotions this year - jealousy being one of them - not good at all

I got over my fascination with London Boy - which is a good thing

I helped prepare for the last rites of a 12 year old girl

2006 has been an interesting year in so many ways

I'd probably even go on record saying that 2006 was more good than bad

My life in 2006 could have been better but it wasn't the worst year I've had

And while all my friends are probably going to be out of town for the new year

I'm honestly thinking of staying home with my father and watching the fireworks on TV

Merry Christmas everyone

Santa Claus is coming to town

Happy Holidays Boys and Girls

I know its a bit early but I am getting into the Christms Spirit of things

I actually feel like singing Christmas carols

Anyone wanna sing with me?

Ok I admit I am Jealous

I am usually a very 'put-together' girl-woman
A woman that can hold herself together and not show her true inner emotions and feelings
But lately things have been eating me up inside
And no one knows except me
But whats worse it the pangs of jealousy that hav been overcoming me
And the time has come to finally admit it
I am jealous
So shoot me!

Under the weather and ex-clients

I have been sick the last couple of days burning up with fever and sweating it out at night

Literally moving around my bed with hot and cold flashes as the fever moves up and down

Not fun at all

I have the sniffles, a cough and a million little hammers that pound my head until I can't take it anymore

Yes I am on medication and it is helping but I'm still under the weather

I can't wait to get better and get back out there with a smile and a face on

Today I did something great though

I met up with an ex-client

Someone that I was in touch with everyday 6 times a day minimum for 6 years...

Yeah 6 years

This man knew me like an open book and so did I

We would fightt, slam the phones down and argue like little children in the playground but all in the name of doing the job right

And today after 2 and 1/2 years of us not working together we are still friends

And we had lunch

And it was just like the old days

Chatting, talking about everything

And you know what the beauty was

I didn't feel the need to put on a face to go and see him

After all he knows the real me and still adores me

Blogger Block

I know I have not blogged regularly for a while and I apologise for that...

Believe me when I say I come to my blog every single day and I look at it with doe eyes and I think to myself "I must update" - but then I just sigh and move on

Trust me I have so much to say but the words are just not flowing anymore

Its like I have writers or bloggers block or something like that

I know people take breaks from blogging but mine seems a bit more than just a break

I have so much to say and I can't understand why the words just don't come

Like even now I am rambling without making a single point and for that I apologise too

But then sometimes I guess I am allowed to ramble on and on - it is my blog after all and today noojes is in the mood of rambling and trying to get over her bloggers block

I have been going through alot lately which no one knows about and no I don't want to talk about it

My life has been swinging from extreme highs to extreme lows with 'time-outs' hiding somewhere in the middle

But every day I put on a face and go to work to try and make something out of this company that I am currently working for and make myself rich and famous at the same time

To add to it, my friends and the people around me seem to be having hard times in their lives as well...and mother hen me has been trying to put my troubles aside and help them out but sometimes it just gets too much to handle and then I need a time-out

My travelling has calmed down from last months madness and I guess thats a good thing

But I just realised that I have only been to Goa once this year and thats not good at all

I know I am rambling

I guess I should stop

I think I'll just go put on a face and go out

I'll be back
