good morning december 23d

  1. [font=fixedsys]good morning to everybody, i havent posted in a couple of days, with catriona being here and using the computer to send her text messages back home, and we have hardly been in the house.
    [font=fixedsys]plenty of beaches and shopping,
    [font=fixedsys]i have also had to chase the agency up about where we are going next.....all of a sudden there has been loads of things to do, i have had to tell them not to presume that i know what i am supposed to be doing, they have to tell me because they are obviously different ways of doing things here.
    [font=fixedsys]the recruiter, summed it up in one sentence, that made me realise that i dont think that she knows what she is talking about.....she said " things are more difficult for me as i come from another country and i am in a different country"
    [font=fixedsys]strange i thought that these islands belonged to america....maybe i was wrong?
    [font=fixedsys]well i cant offer yo all the bakery items that super offered yesterday, she will have to start the thread more often.

    Just finished reading over yesterday's thread, hi to all! I'm following you all quite closely, I must say. You can't get away with NUTTIN'!! (so don't even try!)

    BUSY, BUSY day at work, got off 2 hr late, ate, changed clothes, then dh and I went to the jam session at the donut house. It was a good one, had a guest appear (whom dh knows) who plays guitar and banjo well, and is the area luthier (guitar and banjo doctor) to boot! He played well, and we all had a good time. I have a box of donuts for the ds's and one for work tomorrow.

    Y'all have a good day; we hope to get sent home for the afternoon tomorrow, d/t lack of interest, lol! Sometimes it happens, ya know!! I think we have one case so far . . . and we can get it done first thing, then do a little case mgmt until ----------- OH, would you look at the time!! We'd better be heading home, eh what??!!

    Santa's comin'!!! :Santa1:

    Good Morning

    Cariad, had to laugh about your tale of the recruiter who can't help you cause she is from a different country. Lets hope you don't wind up in Siberia.

    Anna, hope you get out of work early so you can get to doing the important stuff!

    Dianah, hope you get off early as well. Lets say about noon.

    We went out for dinner last night. Today hope to meet up with dd, who is off, and we'll set about last minute shopping. Dh gave me cash to buy gifts for him as well. Also have to go out in the morning for exciting things like the flea meds I never got around to buying yesterday. Better go fortify myself with a beer - sounds like it could be a crazy day!

    Good Morning

    I'm at work tonite--was called off last nite. I did enjoy that.

    Busy here tonite. We have managed to move the pt's to one side, so the one side is closed now. We are now only an 18 bed unit. The RN's who are not chemo certified will be moved to another floor--also anyone who wants to move. They will remodel first one half the floor & then the other half. Hopefully they will be done in about 9 months.

    We are finished shopping--just a tiny bit of grocery shopping to be done in the AM & then, that's it. No big plans for Fri--I will be off,

    Well, the Holiday is practically upon us now & somehow I have yet to get much Holiday spirit. Oh well.

    For all who have been here all ready & for all yet to come, I hope you have a great day!!

    See you all

    Mary Ann, I'm glad you mentioned it. I feel the same way - perhaps worse cause I have just about no holiday spirit. When I mentioned it to my dd she said she feels the same way as does a lot of people she works with. Always feels better to have company!

    Not feeling so Christmasy here, either. One or the other of us has been battling this virus, plus the X-Box 360 ds preordered won't be in till January. All his other relatives have given him Game Stop gift cards or $ to buy games for the system, so there's hardly a thing under the tree. Dh and I bought an area rug for the living room as our gift to one another. It will be a very untraditional Christmas morning at our house. It might be an untraditional meal, too, if that smoked turkey I ordered isn't delivered, lol. It was supposed to arrive yesterday.

    Goodmorning everyone,

    I am tired today but relieved to say that my semester is over. I ended getting a 98 on the final and an A for the class. I made an A- for Lifespan Development.

    Have a good day everyone.

    good morning, everyone.

    cariad, yep, last i heard, u.s. virgin islands is a territory of the u.s.

    dragon, i hope you do get out of work early today.

    dianah, santa isn't coming unless i get my butt in gear.

    weetzie, i still have shopping to do too. i am never going to be this late again.

    mary ann, you and weetz aren't alone in lacking holiday spirit this year. i don't know what's wrong with me. i'm not normally this down this time of year.

    sue, sleep well. see you later.

    mercy, i still have things that were supposed to arrive. we ordered ipods for the kids. one arrived the other hasn't yet. i'm ready to hurt somebody. i don't have much holiday spirit this year either.

    jess, congratulations to you. good going on those classes!

    dh just left for pa. his aunt is in a nursing home and she fell and was sent to the hospital. she's dehydrated again-the second time in 4 weeks she's been hospitalized for dehydration issues. do they not address this at the ns? anyway he's her guardian and though there are relatives up there he wants to look in on her and talk to the nursing home folk in person to see what can be done. she's not doing well to begin with, so it might be hospice time. or maybe they'll feel it's too soon.

    more shopping and wrapping to be done today, then this afternoon i go to the hairdresser to make my gray disappear.

    Good morning!

    I've got a covered dish party to go to toinght but am seriously thinking about staying home and watching a movie.

    Weetzie, the preceptee is real good. She has hospital experience as and LPN and just graduated from an RN program, so she's going to be easy to precept.

    One day off today and back to work for the weekend.

    Jess, congrats on the grads. Now it's on to RN school!!!

    Tweety, sometimes the best thing to do is stay home and watch a movie. You need to have time for yourself once in a while and forget the social whirl.

    Wasn't there a commercial like that? Can't remember the product, but it showed a crowded bar with people saying, "where's so and so, they're missing all the fun" then it showed a couple sitting on a couch with their feet up watching a video.
