Good Monday Morning 6/28/04

  1. Good morning.

    Having a great night at work. We've rooms blocked for cleaning, so we can't get anymore admissions. We're having a summertime dip in census hospital wide so there's plenty of staff. I even sent home a nurse who was on overtime.

    I'm supposed to register for my course today, but can't do it online just yet. May have to do it in person like we did in the old days before computers.

    Hope everyone has a good one!!! Woot!

    Good Monday morning everyone. Well, I'm up ... not even 4 a.m. yet but couldn't sleep anymore...having coffee & visiting my fav internet site.

    Tweets--I know what you mean registering the old fashioned way. I've become so used to doing everything via the internet I've gotten very spoiled!

    Jnette--do you get up this early to go to work or you're just a very very early riser?

    Hiya Karen from London. Love London!!! Also love your quote that you mind wandered and never came back. I feel that way all the time!!! :chuckle

    Well, it is down to the wire for me in my summer courses. Finished sociology final exam last week and got a B in the course so that's done. Last week of Micro. Keep your fingers crossed here for me. Had 2 lab quizzes last week which I scored well on. Today there's nothing happening in micro as the lectures are over but the professor is going to have the lab set up somewhat how it will be for our lab practical tomorrow so I'm going in at 8 a.m. for some practice and tutoring on a bit of info from the dear professor. Wednesday is study day and Thursday is our final exam in micro...cumulative! Hate those cumulative exams. You expect me to remember something from months ago when I can't even remember my own name sometimes???!!!??? :chuckle

    Then that leaves finishing up my online physiology course. This is a retake for me so I should know the stuff.....NOT!

    I would just love to relax before school starts again in August but doesn't seem to be likely. Oh well...I'll just keep chugging along.

    And of course, Happy B'day Smililng Blue Eyes. Best wishes to you.

    Good morning all. Just wanted to check in while I have a chance. I've got just enough time to say Happy Birthday to Deb and then I've gotta study. Been writing research papers all weekend, and totally blew off studying for my final quiz in Western Civ before the last test that covers materal and then the commulative, both of which are tomorrow, along with the final in Personal Health... which means, I won't get to play online anymore for a few days!!! But, you know me... I'll be back....

    Wish me luck

    a grand good morning to all,

    monday morning and no fishing in my immediate future

    i've been listening to all of your "back to school/in school" problems and i think i'd like to do that. i'm going down to my hr today and see what they will pay if i go to school other than unm. at unm, they will pay 100% of undergraduate work, but i was thinking more "on-line" courses, as my work(noc shift)has me a little time constrained. i've sent out inquiries to univ of phoenix, jacksonville and regents. trying to find the best bang for my buck. any of you have leads/recommendations for "on-line" schools? i'm an adn and want to fast track to my bsn. i'm 49 now and would like to achieve my msn before i'm 55.

    well, another day to quit smoking. i've been at this on again/off again smoking crap for so long that i'm really becoming disillusioned. when i smoke, 90% of me wants to quit and when i don't smoke, the desire to light up is so strong that i succumb. i've really researched this and come to the conclusion, that i just like the high smoking gives me. i don't drink, i don't do drugs.........which is saying alot from someone grown up in the 60s/70s.

    i've smoked over 19 miles worth of cigarettes. if each smoke is 3 inches long, over 19 miles. i've smoked over $25,000.00 worth at a median price of $2.00/pack. and my lungs....those two charcoal looking things in my chest are still working fine...........except when i exert myself with a hike or a day of yardwork.

    so here we go again. i've strapped a patch to my *** and it's off to the races again. when i put the patch on my arm, the extraction of nicotine brings pain to it. i'm not sure if it's overloading the nerves there or what, but the pain is so intense that i end up ripping it off.

    another part of this great plan, is to find something to do with my mind and body. boredom is my number one reason for lighting up.

    happy birthday to blue eyes

    you all have a gorgeous day.

    Walter - I used (still do) the gum.... I had the same problem w/ the patch -it made my arm ache...

    Maybe chewing the gum would be better??? I now am loathe to smoke. I tried the other day (one drag) and it grossed me out. But a piece of gum and a cup o joe and I am good to go

    Good luck with the quitting smoking Walter!
