  1. Good morning!

    Can't sleep. Have a big paper due and I haven't started. Right now I'm printing off all 167 pages of the Patriot Act so I can cite.

    Have a great day!

    Hi Bethin - I can't sleep either. Was laying in bed, read the book of James, turned off the light as I was very sleepy and then my mind woudn't stop. So, here I sit.

    Good luck with that paper . . I don't have to start that until January. I doubt if we write papers for Stats.

    To all who come after this, enjoying a good night's sleep . . . Good Friday Morning

    Good friday (evening!) from me!

    Wishing everyone a happy end of week.
    This time next week I'll be visiting with DS! YAY!
    Hope you two manage some sleep, Bethin and Steph. Nothing worse than being unable to sleep.
    Now..... what to have for tea tonight??!! I'm only "sort of" hungry. Can't decide what I feel like to eat. Maybe some yoghurt ..............

    Morning Bethin, Grace, Stevie - wow - is everyone going back to school now??? Is that the thing to do - should I be looking for something?? I was actually thinking of doing the Vickie Millazo Institute, but it's a bit pricey. On the other hand, if it makes me happier as a nurse, wouldn't it be worth it??

    Sorry, just thinking out loud again!

    Great night here - we are wildly overstaffed again, but I'm okay with that after last night, and not getting out of here until 7:50 AM....felt really really unsafe last night! Kinda scary when the charge nurse/resource is someone who was hired in May as a new grad.....and the rest of the staff is travelers.

    Hope you all are doing well tonight. Later Tater Tots.

    Hey everyone!

    Here I am at work ..... 5 hours to go till my weekend!

    Nice steady night, in the intermediate nursery with 3 nipple feeders, so it's been steady, which is great ...... hope the rest of the night goes by quickly.

    I hope the ones that are having trouble sleeping can get some sleep soon!

    Maybe I'll go out to breakfast with my parents when I get off this morning, that sounds good.

    Stats ..... I hated stats. I mean I really really hated it!

    Morning bethin steph Grace Susan Dreamer!

    Woke up earlier than intended, probably because the apartment is a bit cold (gotta tell maintenance).

    bethin, I know what that's like...I just got my care plan done (very tedious).

    Today just got some studying and some register training for my holiday job.

    Gooooooooood Morning to you all,

    Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy TGIF and I am not on call again until Monday night.

    Shall we say I am going to relax this weekend.

    I really have a lot of writing to do and must start soon.

    We had the honor of looking after Hubby's brother, in our home, until he died from cancer in February. We only had him for a very short month.

    The month was a blessing for us all and during this time I was able to have a lot of one on one with Mike. He would only take his pain meds etc from me so for that month I did not sleep a full night. Was so funny because he did not trust his sisters hahahahahahaha shhhhhhh

    I documented every day our journey with Mike. This Christmas I plan to have each family member (7 Siblings and Mumma) a beautiful hand written journal with photos and all the wonderful things that Mike shared with me. It is written in a light humored manner as that is what Mike was like. Nothing but a smile on his dial all the time.

    This will be their precious gift to keep and read when they feel low or are missing him.

    We have the American Flag that was on the coffin, Mike's fav cap, his crucifix and chain, photos and the spent cartridge from the 21 gun salute. All this I am having made into a shadow box for hubby for Christmas too.

    I encourage my caregivers of our patients to try to journal as well. It is a wonderful way to pour out those feelings and thoughts besides it is an excellent way to start the healing/grieving process too.

    Hmmmm I guess I needed to share all of that huh?

    Have a super duper day. I cannot even put up a piccie as the photobucket is doing a maintainence doohicky.

    Stay safe and smile. :spin:
