    #1 i have never started a gm thread before and
    #2 it's my birthday!

    and because i'm just a tad bit narcissistic (c'mon, i'm allowed to be once a year at least! :chuckle) i'll take this opportunity to wish myself a very

    i have a haircut appt at 10a then a dr's appt at 1330. i think i'm going to cancel my dr's appt. nothing big, just need a pre-employment physical but i doubt they'd hire me anyway with the way i look. then it's home to my parents. i dread going home every weekend. i've been looking for full time jobs here but the hours they want me to work won't work with school. i could do it, one job was 12 hr nights. i could go to work, and then go to my morning class. but i'm not sure how much i would retain if i was sleepy. i guess i'll do it and suffer for the rest of the semester. next semester i'll just plan better.

    ugh, work tomorrow 630a to 630p. i will be assisting the unit secretary. the thing that bothers me is that some nurses don't get that my arm is in a cast and i cannot pull your pt up in bed. actually got into a fight with an ICU nurse on mon night. i was just supposed to be watching the pt to make sure he didn't harm himself. she thought i was there to help her. when she told me to go and wake him up and ask him if he needed to urinate, i said no. she said "how dare you defy me?" i am not waking up an 18 year old suicidal pt just to check if he needed to urinate. we went around and around and i finally said "if you want to wake a suicidal pt up, you do it." Her words: nurses don't do that. i didn't wake him up and he woke up by himself an hour later and he did urinate. she said she was going to write me up for this and she can go right on ahead. i was there to watch the pt, not to participate in pt care. i did the seceretarial work and was an added body if something did happen. no word yet if i've been written up.

    the shoulder, thank god is doing better. dr gave me flexeril and it seems to be helping. don't think i can take it at work though. and thankfully, my period is over so i don't have to worry on how to insert a tampon when i'm right handed. tmi i know.

    hope everyone has a great friday!

    happy birthday devil duckie! enjoy your special day!

    it's 6pm friday here, my friday has been pleasant and uneventful.

    i'm excited about tickets we've bought today to see the harlem gospel choir. they'll be here in december. we treated ourselves to this as a joint christmas gift.
    also treated ourselves to les ballet grandiva. iow; men in tutu's! lol it should be a hoot! the dancers are actually professionals from various ballet companies around the world. the write up on this show is very encouraging and positive. we will attend on 2nd october.
    now we eat bread and dripping for the next few months!

    enjoy your friday everyone!

    Devil_Duckie - Happy 22nd!

    dianah - Get thee to bed!

    bethin - Glad to hear the shoulder is better.

    diarygirl512 - Ohh. Seattle. I'd love to go there someday.

    Morning, morning.

    Anyone ever seen The Bad Seed? I'm watching it right now before I hit the sack. Creepy, creepy little girl in that film -- if Nellie Olson and Damien had a child, she would be it. :uhoh21:

    Hmm...well. I'll share some good news and some bad news.

    Good news: I'm going to Arizona! I've been needing to get away from things here, for various reasons, and now I'm getting my chance. Yippee! Grand Canyon, here I come! Happy, happy, happy....

    Bad news: Oklahoma apparently changed the rules for the CNA skills exam AGAIN. Second time, that I know of, since June. Now I can't bring the person I was planning on bringing for the retest (the person I feel really relaxed around) because there is now a weight limit of 200lbs.'s going to be bad enough to break the news to this person and then have to tell the reason why. One thing after...

    Good morning!

    Happy birthday Devil Duckie! I remember 22---I was a full time student then....ironically, just like now.

    Wow, nursing with a cast must be tough bethin, I hope you don't have it on too much longer.

    As for me:

    Hi ho, Hi ho, it's off to school I go,
    To get my stethoscope
    which I forgot (what a dope!)
    Hi ho, Hi ho Hi ho Hi ho, Hi ho,
    so the apical pulse I'll know,
