Good Morning! 8/16/06

  1. I need to go to bed, but thought I'd start the GM thread first. I have to work a 12 today-0630-1830. As long as I get 3 hours of sleep I'll be ok. I'll stop and get a latte before I go into work.

    Still haven't picked my clothes up that I said I would do on Mon. Also, have 2 EXTRA LARGE rubbermaid containers full of books I want to sell. Books are everywhere. You'd think this wasn't a bedroom but a library.

    Disappointed about school. Can't attend d/t dropping that class. I was so excited to be going to this school. It wasn't my first choice but I got accepted by my first choice so I'll go there in Jan.

    Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!

    Good morning!

    Bethin - Only 3 hours of sleep?! I don't know how you do it! Yep, January will be here before you know it. I know just what you mean about all the books, that's how my room used to be .... I'm slowly getting rid of them though.

    Dianah - Good night to you, sleep well.

    Grace - Enjoy the rest of your Wed.

    Roy - Maybe I need to download me some of that music ..... I need something to make me feel good.

    I need to try to stay up late tonight since I have to work tomorrow night. The last few weeks I haven't been sleeping well during the day (on my first night back) because I've been going to bed too early. So I just have to try and stay up LATER tonight, so I can actually get some good sleep tomorrow.

    And I'm just in a bum mood. I'm all crying and worrying about work tomorrow. Sheeesh, I just hate this. Will it ever get better? Will I ever be able to start my work week without crying and worrying the night before? I sure hope so. Sigh

    I need to find a movie or something to watch.

    Rainy hon!

    Why are you crying before work?
    Really, you shouldn't be. Sure - work has it's pressures... but you must feel happy to work. If you don't, it's not worth it.

    As for the music: I'll send you my CDs if you want I have a huge database - my head

    See, I don't even need an iPod. All I have to do is think of a song and play it in my head! hahahah

    I honestly don't know why I cry before work. It's really only the first night before my stretch of days to work that I get all upset like this. The first night before I go back is just the worst for some reason. Once I get to work that first night I'm usually just fine. But I get myself so worked up and anxious thinking about all kinds of stupid things ..... worrying about what kind of assignment they'll give me, wondering if it'll be too tough, too busy, or too stressful, etc. All kinds of irrational things. Last week I cried all the way to work. And you know once I got there I had a GREAT night. So I don't know why I do this. I really do like my job.

    Music is good.

    Good Morning I am scheduled extra today but I am so hopeing they don't need me and will call and say stay home.
    Rain Roy is right you shouldn't be crying and that upset about work. What is going on that is upseting you so much.
    beth and dinah I hope you both are getting good sleep, I need way more than 3 hours of sleep.
    grace you are going to eat tea, we usually drink it? (he he he)
    Roy when I have music in my head it is only like 3 or 4 words over and over again.:chuckle
    Well I just got lucky the phone rang and work doesn't need me to I am going back to bed. See you all later.

    Morning all!

    Hugzz to you Rain. I hope everything works out for you soon.

    Today is Wednesday, I set my alarm, got up, having coffee then realized I don't go in today. Duh. But now that I'm up, I'm up but a nap is very likely later on. My back is all kinds of sore today. It was a rough day yesterday--a lot of patient transfers and I guess my back is complaining now. Did all the proper body mechanics too. It's not like I'm flat on my back in pain--not at all. I'm just way sore. Oh well.

    Oh what a great feeling to get a call saying that they don't need you ..... get some good sleep!

    I really do love my work and the people that I work with ..... my unit and the people are just awesome. But I have only been off orientation for a few weeks, so I'm still just nervous and anxious because everything is still so new to me.

    Rain- you really shouldn't be crying. Yes it is scary when you first get out there. But you need to have confidence in yourself. You wouldn't have passed boards if you didn't know a little something. Right?

    Roy- My hubby is the same way. He can think of a song and boom, it'sin his head.


    I'm up at 4am. I can't stop worrying about my little girl starting kindergarten. Yes she has been in preschool and this shouldn't be that big of a deal. But here is the conversation I had with my husband before I went to bed last night, and the reason I now can't sleep.

    Hubby: I'm worried about Tes going to school tomorrow.
    Me: Why? I'm excited for her.
    Hubby: I just remember when I was 5. We made fun of the kids like Tesla, so much so they were in tears by the end of the day. Five year olds have no empathy.

    And it is not like she is going to the unknown. The school nurse asked that I come in for lunch, so that the para knows how to get Tesla to eat. They will be feeding her in the classroom d/t her 4% BMI, the fact that the lunchroom is noisy, distracting and they only have 20 minutes to eat and no a/c. Tesla doesn't sweat. The kindergarten teacher she will have is great. She just had my son. I met her para and she seems nice. She went to the 2 weeks at the end of school year last year, and the 1 week about 2 weeks ago to help kids get ready for school. I am worried about her now. And I guess she is too. I didn't say anything to her. But she asked me today "My teacher laugh at me because I have poison ivy all over my face?" I assured her her teacher wouldn't laugh at her. Ugh! I hope I am doing the right thing by keeping her in regular school. She is not considered MR anymore. Her IQ tested at 86 which isn't great, but....it's not MR.

    Anyway, I'm up for the duration. Boy my behind will be draggin by about 8pm tonight.

    Thanks, Suzy.

    Well that's a nice surprise to realize you don't go in today. I hope your back feels better, get some rest!

    Yeah I think confidence is a big thing ..... I know I can do certain things well. But there's still SO MUCH that I don't know. I guess it's normal during this first year though to feel like this. I just hate it though.

    ((((HUGS)))) for you. I know that's gotta be hard sending your daughter to school ..... but she'll be just fine. You'll both be in my thoughts.
