Good Morning, August 20, 2006

  1. To me, it's still Saturday night, but technically, here on the east coast, it is Sunday. I have no idea why I'm still up, but I'm not a bit tired. I am hungry, however, and will be back after I feed my face.

    I hope everyone has a great day!

    How is everyone this Wonderful Sunday Morn??
    I am off tonite--usually I sleep VERY well on my nites off, but NOT tonite.
    We were out earlier to some friends for a Card Party & I'm stll all wound up!!:spin: :spin: :spin: I was tired, but can't seem to settle down, so decidede to get up and play in the puter:behindpc: for a bit & also visit you all & catch up on the threads, DH & I did very poorly tonite & lost a bit of money-=---we don't play for lots of money, but it adds up. We played Texas Hold Em. Had a really Good time. Next month it will be at our house.
    My one friend works the same schedule as I do--which makes it easy; all the rest are day workers.

    On Fri. evening they called me about 2100 & gave me a Low census Nite.
    I was really pleased.

    DH saw his MD Sat. AM Not so good. Has to have an MRI of that shoulder he fell on--MD says probably a complete rotator cuff tear & will more then likely need surgery. Also, that very bad abrasion looks very bad--has to go back on Tuesday AM for debriedment. Looks like it might be getting infected! All this is not good news for his beloved golf game!!

    Not much planned for Sunday. Then Monday nite is all ready back to work!!

    We have an Air & Water show at the Chicago LakeFront
    However, we went dowm last year so will probably skip it this year.

    Don, Thanks for starting our GM Thread!!Hope you'll be able to get to sleep!!

    Eric, Good Morning to you & hope you have a good day!!

    I hope all the rest of you yet to come have a WONDERFUL Sunday!!

    Before I leave I'll leave you all some Life-Giving, Wonderful COFFEE!! Also, for others, how about some freshly squeezed OJ??

    So, see you all later

    Good morning Don & Eric!
    Morning Mary Ann. Oh dear....I hope DH rotator cuff injury doesn't require surgery. Many years ago I had a RC injury and had to have an MRI...luckily it wasn't torn but it was painful and took a long time to resolve itself.

    I woke up about 3/4 of an hr ago and just tossed and turned in bed. Couldn't get back to sleep so decided not to fight it and got up. Thanks for the coffee...already on my 1st cup. Nice to watch the sun rise though. One problem is that since I'm up the kitty cats think they're going to get fed already.....NOT. they're becoming a little bit annoying to get my attention like chewing at my plants. grrrrrr. are they saying 'look at me..I'm all skin and bones and have to eat your plant to survive'?

    Good morning. I know all about insomnia, but I slept reasonably well last night for a change.

    It's a work day. My last before my vacation officially starts when I get off tonight! Woot! Tuesday we're going to Asheville, NC for a few days in the mountains for some much needed R&R.

    I hope everyone has a great day!

    Good Morning

    Well, we have two patients, two RN's (one is a traveler) and the CNA is on-call.

    I stayed up too late eating great food at my dh's b-day bbq. I had marinated tri-tip and then made a fruit salad, asparagas, and this great french bread with rosemary and olive oil. There went my diet . . . .

    We head to Mt. Shasta after I get off work for another bbq at my nephew's home.

    Hopefully dd will drive and I will sleep.

    Tweety - vacation sounds good . . .I was gone from work for almost a month and it was heaven.

    Good morning! It's about time to give y'all a big wake-up kiss! :kiss

    In half an hour I will be at work and starting the beginning of a hopefully uneventful 16-hour double shift. My hope is that all of you have a very pleasurable, enjoyable Sunday. Take care!

    So much for watching the sun rise. It's a little less dark than before but it's pissing down with rain and thunderstorms. Oh well.
    The beasts have been fed...they're now all bathing and settling down into little fur balls to sleep the whole day away. :spin:

    Morning all
    Gray and gloomy in blueberry land today....supposed to rain all day. Hopefully we'll get a break this afternoon and DH and I can go out in the boat for awhile. Drown some Haven't even caught a minnow this must be on vacation somewhere.

    On my first cuppa.....mmmmmm. Peel my peepers open and get up and do something...last day off. DH is watching the weather channel....I am sitting in the living room playing on the computer.....I love this wireless stuff!! Definately a pain in the foot to set up.....but worth it in the long run .

    Mary Ann....sorry to hear about your DH.....hope things go well for him and he doesn't require surgery.

    Tweety, Don, Stevie, Suzy, Eric, Commuter, jmgrn...and all that follow....have a wonderful Sunday!!
