  1. I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

    I really didn't foresee the Internet. But then, neither did the computer industry. Not that that tells us very much of course - the computer industry didn't even foresee that the century was going to end.

    I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

    I thought I would pop into allnurses for a while then go and do my ironing.

    Work has had me running around like my mate here > .

    Good morning ZBB. If my brain was working I maybe able to come up with a few funnies for you but alas it is not too be.

    Hope you all have a super duper fun filled day and let us TRY to get through work just one more day!!! Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    Well, tonight has been busy, for sure, my friends. Absolutely insane. I told the charge nurse I am not taking any more patients....I have a patient that needs to go to IMC up here on the tele floor and there are no beds for her down there. Sigghhhh. I don't think I want to be a nurse anymore, but unfortunately, I have no other marketable skills.

    Met another traveler who is in my building!! I think we are going to do something on Sunday when we are both off! And she has cable!! I think I have a new best friend!!

    LOL and Good Morning to you, Sabby !

    Yep.. me, too.... before I get ready to head out the door. Gonna be a GOOD Friday.. only four patients scheduled and all are close to home. Woot! Will even have time to go pick up two orders of home made chicken and dumplings with an extra side of just dumplings in town before I head back this way. This little place called West End Diner makes them every Friday, and I have yet to have had the opportunity to get any! They say they are the best around.

    Now watch.. THIS Sunday that little restaurant above the house I was telling you about will have them.. the one I thought had them EVERY Sunday, but doesn't? Bet they'll have them THIS Sunday! :chuckle That's ok.. I can go for Ckn. 'n Dmpl. twice in one week!

    Another brisk and blustery morning here. It's Casual Friday so I have on a nice sweater and khaki jeans. Nice and fall like.

    Will try to get the house tidied up when I get home.. will have all afternoon. Tomorrow I'm off to spend the day with dd and take her 2 doggies and Minnie for a long walk on the trail near her house.
    Sunday I MUST get down to the basement and start digging out the winter clothes. Nothin' but.

    You all and I'll catch you later in the day !

    Morning everyone!

    Hope things settle down there diarygirl.

    think of it as having more time to do stuff.

    I've got to get dressed up and head over to the hospital. Gotta make sure next quarter to choose a clinical site that's a good bit closer, so I can sleep in a bit.
  7. by   Diary/Dairy
    Thanks Joe - it is slowing down a bit....
    Have fun at clinical - and yeah - getting up at 0500 to go to clinical does not sound like fun!

    Morning Jnette! Hope you have fun with the dogs today!

    Mornin' y'all!

    Joe...that's why I like the evening clinical I have this semester! I don't have to be at the hospital until 1400!

    Anyway.....long time, no see everyone! I am still around, mainly on the ECC/NLC threads in the general student area...but even that has been limited! I just don't have much time for anything else!

    Y'all have a great day!

    Well, I also, have had a busy nite; Again we had one RN less then our acuity called for! What's new????????

    I am just so tired!! If you all recall, DH went golfing yesterday, So I had the whole house to myself with the dog. I planned on sleeping the day away!! Well, you guessed it------I could NOT sleep!!! I didn't get to sleep until 6 PM & then had to get up at 9:30!! On top of it, the sleep I did get was VERY poor quality! I'm not happy with myself now.

    Oh well, nite is almost done 1 1/2 hrs left.

    Nothing planned for today except watch tapes in the AM & then DH will take my Mom to Beauty Shop & hopefully, I'll go to sleep!!
    My 90 yr. old Mom is going to a Dinner Dance tonite!! So she asked if we could take her for her hair so she can look nice!! I just love that she does so much at her age & keeps so active. She still babysits with that 2 1/2 yr old for about 5-6 hrs every day!! She says it keeps her young. All I know is that I sure couldn't do it!! LOL!!
    Mom says that the other day she & the girk were playing babies---My Mom was the baby & she was the Mommy!! My Mom said she drew the line when she wanted to put a diaper on her!!! LOL_____wish I could have seen that!!

    Well, I hope you all have a Wonderful Day!! Happy Friday to all.
    I still have to work tonite before being off the weekend.

    Good morning!!
    I stayed up a bit too late last night playing scrabulous (online scrabble). I learned that if you have had a couple of glasses of wine while playing, you get a bit creative.

    Cool, grey, fall day here. I actually ended up putting the furnace on yesterday. It was too flipping cold in the house.

    Heehee, working from home, every day is a casual Friday. Any more casual and I wouldn't be wearing anything.

    Morning MaryAnn and M'shelle.

    Mary Ann, I hear ya about the staffing. Technically here I think there are only supposed to be 5 RN's and we have 6 and I told the charge I am not taking any more patients because of having someone who needs to be in a higher acuity unit already!! Ahhh, staffing - fun for the ages....Good thing we are full now too...

    Oh well, I am not going to complain anymore - I am just going to put my head down for the rest of the shift and get it all done...

    Morning also to sirI and to Clemm. Hope you all are having a good morning so far.
