    Quote from NurseyBaby'05
    I'll be fine once I get going. It's just the getting going part that trips me up.

    Are you counting the days until ds' leave?
    I have always had trouble w/ the getting up part lol - er, yeah, getting going too... lol

    I am counting the days, yes! The little ... turd says he is coming into the airport in NH around the 21 December. He said he didn't know who he would have pick him up and I said, a-HEM! lol

    Quote from diarygirl512
    I woke up at 0430 local time, so I am going to leave tomorrow! Should be a fun trip - never been outside the US before.
    Have a great time!

    Quote from sirI
    I love your kitty graphic, zoey. I hope you enjoy your day, too.
    I actually got some housework done today! YAYYY! Now if I can just finish ... how was YOUR day Siri? (we are talking Thursday, not Friday ... )

    Quote from NurseyBaby'05
    Steph-Ds uses a baby tub on the floor. It's a little more shallow than our clawfoot tub; hence easier on the back.
    OHHH! duhh... I was thinking this was your own bathtub, and hub was forgetting to drain it! Derrr...

    This works well too and easier to read!

    Hi all! I need to share with you this...for me was the BEST response at what to means to be a nurse...enjoy...is not my creation and I didn't find the author, but she/he write with perfect words ever!

    "Beeing a nurse isn't about grades. Is about beeing who we are.
    NO book can teach you how to cry with a patient.
    NO class can teach you how to tell a family that their parents have died or are diyng.
    No professor can teach you to find dignity in giving someone a bed bath.
    A nurse is NOT about pills, the IV's and the charting.
    Is about beeing able to LOVE people when they are in their weakness moments and beeing able to forgive them for ALL their wrongs and make difference in their lives TODAY!

    NO ONE can make you a nurse....YOU JUST ARE!"
    That is great Zuzi! Hey and glad you are feeling better!

    Good arvo. First day off not starting well with DH not enjoying our lunch out - the food was not good...

    But the rest of the day should be fine.... I wish someone would turn the sun down though, or at least send us some rain...

    Hope to see you when you all wake up!

    Hooroo

    Drove an hour to work. Clock in and I'm told I'm not needed. Go to my parent's house. Forgot my key. Drove 90 mins back to my apt where I'll spend the night. I'll call my mom in the am and tell her to leave a spare above the door. So, if you're keeping track that's 255 miles for no good reason today.

    Think I'm going to do some cleaning and go to bed. Hope you all have a great Friday!

    GOOD MORNING, LITTLE PEEPS!!

    Hi Gang, Haven't been here for a couple of days--been really busy at work & when I get home, I'm just too beat to do anything lately.
    Right now, I'm at work and We're eating a bit of Birthday Cake, Our Traveler Nurse was 24 yesterday. She was off last nite, so I brought a cake in tonite.
    The group here at nite decided to "appoint" me to the Night Shift Unit Council. We have never had a separate night council before, & it's something we're trying. The reason is that all the Units councils meet in the afternoon----usually during our sleeping time---so we have no representation. This way we'll also have some say in day to day matters.
    Oh well, we'll see.
    I'm thinking about going for a promotion again, but that will entail writing a paper, which I haven't done in years. I did do all this stuff once before & had the paper mostly written but then decided not to do it. I don't know. Is it worth it when I'm going to be retiring in a couple of years. I don't know.

    Next year I also have to renew my OCN. But, we can do that by CEU's. That's how I did it 3 yrs ago. that makes life a lot easier.

    I work again Fri nite, so nothing really planned for Friday. Today I didn't even watch tapes, but went to bed about 3 hrs earlier then usual---I feel more tired then ever now!! Maybe too much sleep???

    I hope you all have a great day!!

    Zoe, thanks for starting our morning thread!!

    Dar & Beth---have a good rest!! Beth--you certainly did a bunch of driving!!

    See you all later

    Good Morning!!!

    I know I said, I would start the thread this morning, but goodness is work busy tonight. TOO many incidents tonight. Had one client assault a staff and my god you can just imagine the paperwork involved in that. :trout: :uhoh21:

    Besides that everything else is going well. My sup. said she was going to fix my eval. so that's one load off my mind. :spin: She really is a nice lady and I would have hated to have to write her up.

    Well... that's all for now. Hope everyone has a great day!

    I was torn between two pics, so I'll post em both.




    German o' the Day:

    Are you sick?

    (Formal) Sind Sie Krank? (Zend Zee Krahnk)
    (Informal... for friends/family/God) Bist du Krank? (bist doo krahnk)

    Yeah, my head is broken.

    Ja, mein kopf ist kaput. (ya, mine kO-pf ist ka-put)

    Thank you

    Danke schn. (lit. nice thanks Dan-ka shOn)

    You're Welcome/Please

    Bitte (bit-uh)

    Mary Ann, what kind of promotion? Would it get you off the floor? If you want, write the paper and see what happens. Do your best (as usual). You can't get promoted unless you do a little work. Writing a paper isn't hard. Sit with your thoughts for a few days and start writing. Write from your heart. I have a gazzillion more tips, just pm me if you want some help. FYI, I get A's on all my papers.

    No, I'm not in bed yet. The last tenant left the place a mess. I had to clean the blinds and windows. I hate dirt. I was very thankful I had bought q tips. It helps get into nooks and cranny's in the window and also I used them to clean the air vents - they were icky.

    Next week I'll remove all the empty boxes. I'm going to take the 2 air mattresses from my parents and use them as a couch for now. My parents had offered to buy my lr and dr furniture, but with the computer I said not any longer. The apt is blah, haven't hung any pics yet. I'm on www.flickr.com alot. I save the pics I like to my computer, find a cheap frame and presto! I have art for my walls that is gorgeous and all for $2 I got a deal at target - all frames all sizes for $1.

    Morning Alois Sabby bethin muff Mary dar Zoe!

    That's an awful lot of driving bethin.

    Alois, that sounds like a crazy night.

    Mary Ann, as bethin said, don't worry, writing is easy.

    Kind of strange, work up this morning anxious and heart racing...but I don't remember having any sort of bad dream and I felt calm when I went to bed. Better now...I wonder if it's all the stress I've had lately.
