Well, Old Friends, I haven't been around much since the First of the year---BUSY!!! Have not caught up on the threads yet!!
    I'm at work right now & Super Busy---they took one of our nurses again--even tho our new grid calls for 4 nurses, we only have 3.

    Even tho I'm busy, I really have to tell you all this NEWS!!
    You all remember the missing Tablecloth---well as I suspected---I found it last nite just before leaving for work!! It was in my linen cabinet--just where it was supposed to be!!
    I couldn't believe my eyes when I found it---it's like some stupid joke or something!!

    Welll, I'll come back later & write more-- just wanted to tell you all the BIG news of my week!! Pretty pathetic when that is the big news in my life!!

    Be back, Peeps!!

    Wishing you all a good day, tho

    Good morning again!!

    Hope all of you had a good Thursday. Have not had time to read the thread yet. Still lots to pack.

    I'm watching the M*A*S*H marathon on tv. Going to watch this last show then I'm off to bed. I'm going grocery shopping and then taking it to my place. I want it ready so Monday when school starts I don't have to worry about getting this and buying that. When I'm in school I want the least amount of stress possible.

    Hope all of you have a great day! :spin:

    good evening from oz!

    i've only just posted in yesterday's thread! :chuckle

    good luck with school bethin!
    hi mary ann, am i right in guessing you're at work?

    my friday is drawing to a close. it's after 7pm here. i wish everyone who follows a safe and happy friday!

    mine was a quiet one. went grocery shopping. boy! the prices!! i cannot believe how high the prices have shot up! :angryfire being our, southern, summer, and the season for the delicious stone fruits, (which i love!), the prices we're paying for the fruit is ridiculous! peaches are anywhere between au$6-9 per kilogram. sheesh! it's getting too expensive to eat healthy food!

    my pinky is healing, but it's numb!!!???!!! am hoping that's only temporary. the doctor in the casualty dept. felt sure there was no nerve damage. haven't made coleslaw since! since i got up close and personal with that sharp knife, every time i go to use a knife, dh asks; "can i do that for you?" :chuckle he's fearful i'll do myself another injury! he reckons one good thing came from it though. my "rain dance",- which he reckons i did after the knife did it's damage -broke the dry spell we've been having! cheeky bugger!

    take care and stay safe!

    sorry mary ann, couldn't resist it! just teasing you!

    glad you found the tablecloth! i know what it's like knowing where something should be, but unable to find it! :angryfire

    take care!

    You are so correct that I am at work!! For the last 2 hrs I have been waiting for an admission--they called for a bed at 0200 & it's close to 0400 & still no patient!!
    My busiest time is between 0500 & 0700, so you can be sure that that is when they will bring this patient!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!
    If I got this pt. now, I'd be able to do a nice, thorough, unrushed admit!!

    Oh well--I can stew all I want, won't c hange anything!!

    See you all later

    After work this AM, DH & I have to take Barney--our 10 yr old mixed beed in for surgery. He has some type of cyst on his elbow that has been getting bigger. We had him to the Vet yesterday, & he said surgery--however, he was too backed up to do it then, so we bring him today. I all all will be well with him. He has NEVER been sick!! He's so robust & healthya!!
    I'm kind of worried!!
