Good Morning Aug 31 2006

  1. Morning everybody.

    Yes I know my posting has been sporadic lately, but I thought I would kick off this thread since no one else has.

    To start with, Tweety did you make out okay with ernesto? Looks like its going to drop some rain in my neck of the woods within a few days.

    School has officially restarted, it's my last year of RN-BSN (yes there is light at the end of the paper-writing tunnel). I have finished my orientation to MICU and truly love working in critical care.

    Roy: good luck on the NCLEX, I know you'll pass.

    Well I hope everyone's day goes well, I'm off to hit the hay.

    Hi Suzy! i am sooo sad the summer is almost over ... seems like August has just flown by!! only 48 here as well... my poor dog looks at me like hey! why is the grass so cold???

    busy work day for me... lots of teaching though so i like that .
    thinking good thoughts for Roy....

    Tweety... you guys ok? any flooding?

    looks like our turn will be this weekend but only clouds and rain; will have to find indoor things to do. dd is starting her first teaching job and i have to go help her set up her classroom.

    Good morning everyone.

    Looks like Ernesto is going to be dropping some rain on us. I hope. We get either flooding or raining.

    I'm off to get my biopsy done. After that I think I'll lie around the house and whine so everyone will pamper me a bit. After they get home form work and school of course. :wink2:

    Have a great day, everyone.

    Hey everyone.

    Yeah I can't believe August is already over! Wow, September already. High of 102 though today, lol .... still got a bit of summer left. But it's not bad, I can't complain.

    I think I've stayed up as late as I can .... I'm getting sleepy. I work tomorrow night (actually tonight - Thurs.) and Fri. Kinda dreading it But I'm sure it'll be ok. I just hope it's as great as last week was.

    ((((Kat)))) I hope everything goes well today, definitely go home and be pampered afterwards.

    I hope everyone has a great day!

    Morning all you sleepy heads!! It's lunch time here & I'm not popular because i'm on the computer & the kids want it

    All the best for your test Roy!

    Hope all goes well Cybercat & you get them pampering you for sure!!!

    It's actually quite muggy her in London today but until now the whole of August has been dreadful. July was too hot & August just BLEAH!!!!

    Still I feel sunny because.......I got a job offer for a 2 year contract in Florida..YIPPEEEEEEEE!:smiley_aa

    Contract looks pretty sound, no massive get out fees, pay is usual agency type levels but not too bad & betyter than many I've seen. It just reflects the payback for all the immigration stuff etc really. Its still plenty more than I get here in the UK & as we won't have a mortgage in the USA we'll be able to get by just fine. They even asked if I might want to train up to ICU/ER as they offer that to nurses who they think are good enough. That would mean I'll leave in a better position than when I started.

    All in all it seems fair & is at worst a means to an end.

    Hope you all have a GREAT day xxxxx

    Good morning Ben! Glad to hear you're still in school. I've got 3 semesters left myself and am seeing the light at the end of the paper writing tunnel myself. Good luck to you!

    Ernesto was a non-event where I live. A few sprinkles here and there and that's it. It looks like it's about to rain now. We can always use some rain.

    I think today is going to be a pretty lazy off day for me. A little studying, but I'm not killing myself.

    Mornin' y'all!

    Reading, reading, and more reading for me today!

    I listened to the lecture tape all the way home from the campus yesterday. I sure hope that helps my mind to absorb the information. I'll listen to it again today if I can, but definitely on the way to skills lab tomorrow.

    Everyone have a great day!

    Good morning everyone! Rain sounds good here, but we probably won't get any until Oct or Nov . . . that's usually the way it works.

    Siri, feeling any better?? Hope so.

    Roy, thinking of you today!!

    Fun, what a good idea, to listen to the lecture tapes while commuting! I'd want to review my notes at the same time, though, which could make for an interesting (if dangerous!) drive . . .

    Work today, then we have our jazz class, and then we pop over to the donut shop for the jam session. It's a later night than I like, but that's the way it is. Nothin' unusual planned.

    I better get going, everyone have a good day.
