    Greetings to all!

    I need to catch up with the GM threads, we were gone camping at the bluegrass festival from Wed afternoon till Monday noon-ish.
    The weather was great: temps in the low 80's, humidity not bad, and a breeze every day. Evenings dipped to 67 or so. VERY pleasant!
    I got some reading in, we jammed some, visited some, heard some bands, bought hats (our fave hat vendor, we MUST buy a hat when we see him at this festival!), had some good meals. It was a good festival!
    Our band was on stage Sunday for the gospel hour at 9am, and it was nice to see familiar faces listening. We did some older arrangements and three new ones that were well-received -- one with three-part harmony throughout, turned out good!

    So, am back at work today

    Y'all have a good one.

    Evening, all! Been a bit MIA in the daily threads. Last week I vented about how I was being sent home for low census? Well, this week so far (all 2 days of it) is making up for that. Nothing like a change of shift emergency to follow a full day of cases! I'm still going to take a hit in my paycheck, but at least it's not looking like it's going to continue to be a growing hit.

    The weather has finally turned here for a bit. I didn't need the AC in my car today at all! I didn't break a sweat from the heat and humidity just walking out to get the mail! Wish it would stick around longer than it's predicted to, but it's a nice break.

    Quote from BCgradnurse
    I like Fall, but I hate what comes after it.
    Me too! Dark at 4:45 p.m. and cold, cold, cold. Winter doldrums. Seasonal Affective Disorder. Pasty white skin. Weight gain due to not getting out as much and sitting inside with the Winter doldrums/SAD.

    Ok - enough whining. It is still summer here and I love it.

    Good morning - got a call from the hospital at 4:24 a.m. telling me that a someone called about a new admit and wanted info. Ummm . . . it is 4:24 a.m. and I have no idea who this person is and can't share private info and why didn't you tell them to call back when someone was in the office? But I called because the person sounded distraught to the nurse who woke me up. And after all it was 7:24 a.m. in Georgia so everyone must be awake, right? All I told her was the patient was ok and that our manager would call her back. When she woke up and drove into work.

    I'm off call and it is my day off so I'm working on Spidey's room today to get it ready for his bro/sis/niece/nephew this Sunday.

    Glad the humidity has eased up for y'all. Have a great day!

    Good morning Sabby. Glad you are enjoying. We've had the best cantaloupes this year!

    Ted: What fun! Are you going to see and hear "The Wedding Singer"?

    BCgradnurse: I had an office once. The window looked out at a parking lot.

    Joe: I hope work is OK today.

    Steph: Enjoy your day off.

    Early tomorrow we will go to share a camp site with my sister and two of her friends. We put a mattress in husband's SUV for sleeping. He will be one man with four old ladies! No electricity. I'll make sure our phones are charges and try not to use them No internet access so after today I'll be away until Friday night. There will be rangers there is access to civilization if needed.

    Good afternoon!

    Today is "mop the floor" Tuesday, which I've yet to complete. I finished half and went off to yoga and have been distracted since. I have some clothes in the dryer, just had lunch and will get to the floor eventually. Sister is coming over at 4:30 and we're going to meet my best friend for dinner and a sunset, another friend will join us.

    Sabby, glad things are going better. You live in a lovely area with nice neighbors.

    BC, hope you having a good day. Glad you're enjoying the weather.

    Joe, hope the sleeping gets better. I often wake up before the alarm and it's very annoying.

    Steph, have a fun day cleaning. I'm glad I don't have to do call.

    Ted, that grass always seems to haunt you. At least you don't have to mow during the winter like we do. LOL

    herring, enjoy the trip. Doesn't sound fun to me with no internet and no electricity, but you enjoy! LOL

    Michael: it is still evening here on the west coast of the USA.
    I know you will be glad to get home.
    Good for you getting your medication back.

    It hurts me the know about poor hospital care. We have too much of that here too.
