  1. hello hello hello to friday!!!

    g'day everyone! wishing one and all a good tgif!

    i've just finished reading the thursday thread. yep, i know! we're all back to front down here down under in a different time zone, day, date, hemisphere! :spin:

    angela! hope you enjoy the gm thread and getting to know us all.

    my friday consisted of going into the city to the markets. love those markets! just people watching is worth the 1/2 hour trip into the city and the parking fee. some amazing characters work there and shop there.

    beautiful spring weather here again today. though, we really need rain badly! australia is going through the worst drought and we badly need rain!

    i'm off to a scrapbook workshop tonight. i'm just a beginner at this, but am really enjoying it. yep, you know you've reached middle age when you're excited about attending a scrapbook workshop on a friday night! gone are the days of hitting the night spots and being out until all hours!


    it's rememberance day here tomorrow. same as your veterans day "up/over". we'll probably attend the local service in the morning. it's important to remember those who served and are currently serving.


    time for tea! it's leftovers tonight!

    have a great day and a safe and happy weekend all!

    cheers...........

    Hello Grace! Sounds like a very nice day. I hate to admit it but I have a scrapbook and all the stuff to go into it from my #2 son's high school football senior season and it is still in my closet, waiting to be put together.

    Happy Veteran's Day to my father-in-law, my dad and all the men and women who have served and are serving in the military.

    good morning, my dear little peeps!!!

    grace, thank you for starting the thread!

    i have never done the scrapbook thingy--i have always meant to, yet never got around to it---i said i would do something after europe, then again after our cruise, then again after mexico!!!:uhoh21: well, you guessed it--i have never gotten around to it. i even bought the scrap books!! well, that's just me!! i said i would do one next year when we travel south again!! who knows, i may even do it!!

    grace, sounds like the markets might be fun!!
    i always said i wanted to visit australia---who knows, maybe i'll get there someday after i retire!
    happy rememberance day!! i know your dh served!!

    steph, good morning to you!! i hope you have a wonderful day on friday!!
    shouldn't you be getting some sleep???

    angela, i also welcome you--i read yesterday that it was your first time posting!! well, i'm one of those night people!! we usually only show up here at night cause of work!! or can't sleep when we're off!!

    well, i'm at work, but not charge tonite!!! yes!! it's been very busy, but i'm taking a bit of a break. i need it!!

    can you all believe that my patient is still with us---the man on the dilaudid drip at 9 mg/ hr. plus ativan 2 mg q 4 hr. i didn't think he'd make it thru to morning last nite & i came i n & he is still here & with fairly stable vital signs. family is with him now all the time----thank goodness!! i hate it when people have no one with them as they're passing!!! if that's the case, i will usually try to stay with them!!
    well, i guess since this man is really quite young, that's the reason. good , strong heart. i feel so bad for him & his family---i'm so glad he at least appears comfortable!!

    my other pt. with pca dilaudid is finally doing better since i talked them into giving her a basal rate along with it!!

    sick, sick patients!!

    our unit is tempoarily moving around the 20th of this month!!:angryfire
    yep!! they want to remodel our unit, so they need us out of here!!
    not a good thing!! oh the remodel is--just not the move!!


    well, i hope you all have a wonderful and happy day!!

    grace & steph, i hope you all don't mind, but i think i'm going to leave some refreshments for our day people!! to help them get started!!
    this is a never-ending pot--siri & suzy!!!
    i'll also leave a pot of tea, for those of you who don't indulge in coffee!!

    so, then, you all enjoy your day!!
    hello to all of you who come later!! wish i could play with you all sometime!!

    Morning Grace & Steph!!!
    Morning Mary Ann....thx for starting Siri and me with our never ending coffee. :spin: I'm just a new nurse but there have been several occasions already where the family doesn't stay with the dying and I stay with the patient until they pass. Can't stand to think of someone ever passing alone. Just irks me.

    Fell asleep very early last night so I'm awake early this a.m. Work 3-11 today.
    Hope I can get an appt this a.m. to get my eyebrows waxed. There starting to look a bit .....erm...messy?

    Morning all & thanks for the tea - it is still tea drinking hours here as far as I'm concerned - coffee comes in much later in the day!

    We have Rememberance day here tomorrow too. Everyone here wears their poppy with pride - well we would if every one I bought - kids & me - hadn't fallen off! Still the thought was there & the money still counts!! My brothers in the Sir force - he's just back from the gulfn safe & sound thank goodness! Thoughts & prayers for others whose family &/or friends serve in the forces.

    Had the first frost of winter last night -luckily didn't have to scrape the car down - those days will be coming though!

    Wishing everyone the best of days xxxxxxxxx
