I read an article on the Daily Post, encouraging us to post from our phones or tablets. (Which is well worth the read). I’m at work this evening. My showers are done, my medicines are passed, and one resident is walking the halls, and another resident is in the snack room. I have a bit of time on my hands.
Here is a tiny story.
If you follow me, you know I work in a Supportive Living Facility as a Nursing assistant. I work with the Blind, and talk about my residents on occasion. If you’re new to my blog, and have a minute, read here to close in on the buzz.
Friday, our nursing supervisor talked to Emmett about how she needed to cut back on the amount of soda she’s been drinking. She told her to only drink soda on the holidays.
Emmet, agreed and went back to her room.
A few hours later she came out of her room, passed the nurses office, and into the snack room where the soda machine sits.
She puts her first quarter into the machine, and says:
This is for Veterans Day, second quarter, this is for Thanksgiving, and her third quarter this ones for Christmas!
