Good Friday Morning 02/04/05

  1. I guess it gets to be me again today.............
    If any of you in CA know of a short-cut for me to take to get to Phx, instead of taking I-5 down then to I-10, I would be ever so greatful. The shorter time that I can spend driving, the better. I want to make it as quick as possible, and get back here. Too much traffic there for me know.

    Have a great day................... :hatparty:

    morning suzanne,

    i have no idea re: anything in california, so count me out. i'm sure donny will be on later and will be able to help you.

    remember last noc i was telling you guys i had dental surgery and the surgeon had to literally dig out an impacted root. well i haven't eaten all day because of the pain. i finally broke down and took 1 vicodon which has helped. but since i was hungry, i made myself a chunky peanutbutter sandwich.
    so the moral of the story? don't pick that to eat after dental surgery. that really hurt.

    today's breakfast : maypo, gerber rice cereal or oatmeal for the hot cereal preference;
    croissants; bagels with cream cheese and lox if you wish. (or just butter); or home-made muffins; blueberry, honey-bran or choc chip.
    omelettes or an egg mcmuffin (i make these)...which is egg and melted cheese on a toasted english muffin, just like mcdonalds. i will add bacon or sausage per request..
    dry cereal: wheaties or life cereal, and if i must, captain crunch.
    french toast with either syrup, confectioner's sugar or jam.
    crepes with a dab of jam (for wolfy)
    fresh fruit salad.
    plain or vanilla yogurt to add your choice of fruits to.
    to drink: coffee, tea, hot chocolate, oj, grape juice, tomato juice and/or good old fashioned milk ( i also have strawberry quik to add to your milk).

    now here's the kicker; you guys have to come to my house to have breakfast with me. none of this cyber stuff.

    have to bring my son at 4pm for an interview at a high school next year.
    ask me where i'll get THAT tuition.
    got a call from a hospice agcy today, offering me a job.
    at this point, i politely declined...i'm taking some much needed time off.

    but i did decide that when the time is right, i do want to return to school to become an np that specializes in palliative care.
    life is filled with so many unpredictable twists and turns, who knows what will happen. but it's a definite goal of mine.

    ok, enjoy your maypo as i'm sure that's your first choice and hope everyone has a great friday.

    peacefully,

    leslie xo

    Good morning. Just had penut butter and jelly so I'd better wait on breakfast until after my nap. My peanut butter and jelly didn't hurt.

    I had to look up maypo on google, I've never head of it. Guess it's not popular in the south. Quaker Oats is fine with me.

    Sorry about your pain Leslie, and stay away from peanut butter.

    I just spent about five hours on a paper on applying to nursing theories to two shifts. uke:

    Morning everybody

    Leslie: hope the mouth feels better soon. :icon_hug: I remember having all four wisdom teeth pulled. I had it done on friday, and I developed a dry socket that could not be treated until monday. I really empathize with the pain from dental operations.

    Roy: waz up man, getting all dressed up like that. It takes nothing less than a wedding or funeral to get me all cleaned up. Well, there was that time a rouge clinical instructor forced it upon me....

    Tweety: You haven't posted yet, but if you are working I hope that tonight goes better than the other nights that you have posted. If you are off, have a great night/day.

    To everybody else morning and have a great day.

    Thanks for the crepes, Leslie!!!!...you are so thoughtful. Already licking my chops. Got coffee in hand. Hope you feel better. Go for the smooth peanut butter next time, yah nut...whatcha doin' chompin' on the crunchy stuff! My teeth hurt just thinking about what you went through. I'm slippin' you another Vicodin...here.

    Tweety...ouch, my teeth hurt again thinking about you chompin' down on that theory paper. It hurt so bad I think I just about teared. I think I'll pass a Vicodin to you too.

    Well, off to bed for now. Going to be working two doubles back to back. Oh, well. Coffee cup drained. Off to night night.

    Have a good day, fam. Catch ya soon.

    There is no shorter way,sorry My brother lives in Phx and my Dad and Step Mom live in Pauldon which is by PresScot.We always go 99 south to 58 east then to 15 north to 40 east till you get to 89 south,which takes you to I'm not sure 60 or something like that to Phx.You might try this route,but take 58 east to you get to 15 then take 15 south till you get to 10 then cut across from there,that would get you pass all that Southern Cal traffic.We will be heading that way for a visit soon.I can make Phx in 10 1/2 hrs.Hope you have a safe trip.

    morning, y'all,

    suzanne, sorry i can't help. didn't even know what the 'grapevine' was till donny explained. (thanks, donny) hope you can come up with a shortcut.

    roy, enjoy the nurses ball! gee, we didn't have anything neat like that when i went to school.

    leslie, ow! i almost laughted but it hurt too much remembering when i had a tooth extracted and then ate chunky p.b. - definately not a good idea.
    you are one fantastic cook. i'm checking flights now to find the next flight to boston. even without red-eye gravy and biscuits!
    i think it is a great idea for you to go back to school and become a np. i'm serious - you would be fantastic doing that in palliative care. :icon_hug:

    tweety, so did those five hours finish the paper? sure hope so!

    hi nurseboy, so.....do we get any of the juicy gossip about you and that clinical instructor? huh?

    presc, tell me you did not eat chocolate chip cookies with water. water? sheesh! how healthy can ya get?

    wolfy, ouch! talk about pain - 2 doubles, back to back! ya better stop giving those vicodin away - you're gonna need them!

    ah.......it's friday, it's payday, and i am not on-call this weekend. how lovely. now if the beautiful weather only holds out.
    gonna go have a beer, and read for a bit before sleep. do you believe dh went to bed at 7:30 p.m? he's been working 55 hour weeks and is exhausted. things ya gotta do to pay the bills! now, if he'd listened to me he wouldn't be in debt, but thats another story.

    goodnight all -

    sorry not much to tell, she worked a "professional appearance" into the clinical grade for the day. she flat out told me to appear in shirt and tie, oh the things we all do when the clinical instructor snaps their fingers.

    Suzanne typed in my address here and my brothers address in Phx,then did a map search directions.It showed your way the shortest.9hrs 22 mins If you go through Southern Cal before 6 in the morning or after 6 in the evening the traffic is'nt nearly as bad.Which ever way,have a Safe trip....

    It was pretty moist and juicy, with a littel A1 sauce was fine. Just took a long time. But it's finished. Now on to the Chemistry Book!
