friday 2nd december

  1. good morning to everyone, I have only just finished reading thursdays thread, and as it is twenty past midnight here, decided to start todays, before I go to bed and then I can play catch up in the morning.
    all this talk of snow, and all of the decorations going up here are glistening all day in the sun. have to make the most of it as we will only be here for nearly 4 more weeks. catriona is coming on thursday though so we will be busy for the 3 weeks that she is here. the hurricane season officially ended here on december 1st...26 storms and not one came here so we have got a lot to be thankful for. especially as some of them originate not far from here and then hit the states. they reckon that the waters have been up to ten degrees warmer this year than normal and thats part of the reason for the increased storm activity, and the sea has certainly been warm this year to swim and relax in. well will check in again tomorrow,,,,keep well,,,,and siri,,,,recover soon its no fun doing acls if you have got bug.

    hello everyone! still up, it's 4:15a here. supposed to be working on a research paper that has yet to be started. have to turn in a one page proposal by sun so i guess i best get cracking.

    my wonderful nieces turned one on thurs! i actually looked at the clock at 8:44p, a minute after the first one was born. i cried. i'm just sooo excited. their b-day party is sat. bought pots and pans made by fisher price. there's a voice that sings and tells you to stir, put this pan in this pan.....i'm gonna play with it more than they will! seriously thought about just wrapping empty boxes but mom talked me out of it. now they have like 4 gifts a piece. can anyone say spoiled?

    grace, hello! can you hear me???? where are you??? h e l l o......

    hope everyone has a great day. i'm going to bed since grace isn't going to show face.

    Do you know the last time California had a hurricane? I'm 25 and I THINK I remember southern California having one when I was small but then again it could have been my imagination.

    And why doesn't the west coast, specifically California get hurricanes?

    I just have to share this. I got in my car today and as I was backing up I looked up at my odometer. It's digital and I have it on 'trip' mileage. Anyway, it said 101.5. I stopped and put the car in park. I thought to myself 'I don't feel like I have a fever. Maybe I should go back inside and check just to make sure." Then it hit me: that wasn't my temp!!

    I think I need a vacation.

    Morning everyone!
    I'm up and ready to go to another hospital, about 30 minutes away to observe their OB unit. It'll be interesting, I think.

    Mom and pups are doing well this AM, one of the little men has a deep cut on his front foot right under his paw, don't know what from, but I suspect a piece of string or something wrapped around him and just ripped the skin off....we put medicine on it and it does look better this AM. Thank You God! Been having to show teeny weeny where the nipples are and help her attach to nurse...she just wasn't getting it, but after 2.5 days of showing her, I think she's catching on! YEA!

    Amanda is coming home for 2 weeks beginning December 19th. That'll be nice. She's excited about her pup and has been looking at pink doggie things to buy for her....LOL!:chuckle She told me that her pup is going to be a girly girl...
    I guess Steve called her last night and he is in Kuwait right now. So at least we know he made it safe and sound.

    :Holly3: Cariad~ You enjoy that lovely weather you have there! Wish I could come swim with you! LOL!
    :Holly3: Suebird~ Get some rest today, will ya?
    :Holly3: Bethin~Slow down on the birthday buyin' or else you'll have reason to have a temp of 101.5! LOL! You crazy girl!
    :Holly3: Steph~ Good morning! No more snow, huh? That's about all we've been getting too, is a dusting, then rain to take it all away. Although I'm sure the weather will make up for itself soon!
    :Holly3: Siri~Please feel better real soon! We need you here!

    Gotta run...still haven't eaten breakfast and I look like Medusa with this hair standing straight up all over my head!
    Have a wonderful day and I'll talk to ya all later!

    I think I can match you on that one! Last night when I got up to come in (I work 11-7) I had only gotten a coupla hours sleep. Got in the shower, about 5 minutes into the process, I noticed my feet were numb, felt funny. Looked down- MY SOCKS WERE STILL ON! *sigh* at least I'm off this weekend, maybe my sanity will slowly return.

    Good morning.

    Bethin, Lori, those space-out moments are just too cute. I have them all the time. But I ain't tellin'. LOL

    Woke up to a chilly house of 67 degrees, so I cranked up the heat to take the chill off. 67 may be fine for you guys up in Maine or Minnesota, but not my house here in Florida.

    Got the usual routine today of housecleaning, homework, and I hope to get 40 minutes of areorbics in at the gym.

    Good morning!

    Tweety, in my house, I like the thermostat on 75, but my dh is hot natured, so we usually keep it on 72. lol

    Anyway, I have to take a one hour trip to sign the papers for my Algebra class that weren't ready yesterday when I went, then drive another hour home.


    Hope everyone has a great day, and those that are ill gets to feeling better soon!!

    BBL!

    Good morning, everyone!

    Cariad, definitly enjoy the warm while you can.

    Sue,

    Bethin, I still love playing with kid toys. Boy, when I have grandkids my kids are gonna hate me.

    Steph, stay warm. I know you're in No. Cali, but I always thinking of warmth when I think of California.

    Julie, I just so love pups. I saw their pictures and they're so adorable.

    Jess, orientation is always kinda fun. Enjoy.

    Lori, I promise, you aren't the fist one to do something like that.

    Tweety, your agenda sounds pretty much like mine. But 67 degrees here is downright balmy.

    Fun, I feel your pain. I used to have to do dumb stuff like that too. But it will be worth it in the end. Just call first to make sure it's ready this time.

    Well, I'm off until Wednesday. The house needs a lot of tidying and more decoration. My foot is still killilng me, and still swollen. Next week after my last day and and day in NYC Friday I'll see an orthopedist and see if we can't get it splinted for a bit.

    Today is Andrew's birthday, so I'm kind of a little blue. He'd have been 20 today.
