    Good morning! :kiss

    Thanks to Mary Ann for starting this thread.

    I am busy with making my house tidy and clean. I am expecting a real estate appraiser to come by during the early afternoon hours to do their inspection of the property. If all goes well, I will be receiving some cash via a home equity loan.

    In addition, I have an appointment this morning.

    Morning Mary Ann and commuter.

    Count me in as one that does not feel great - allergies are terrible and on top of it I've got the dry heaves. I took some phenergan so I hope that works. This is my life now and I have to get used to it.

    Think I'm off to bed - good night.

    I, too, have chronic allergies, but they are probably of a different variety than the ones you suffer from. I have suffered from chronic hives since April 2004. My endocrinologist says it is related to my thyroid, as I have autoimmune thyroid disease.

    Anyhow, I hope you feel better!

    Hi Everyone,

    Back again; Did my charting both on the computer & in the chart.
    Such redundance!!
    Well, nothing to be done about that.

    If we get an Admit, it will be mine. We only have 9 pt's They floated one of the nurses to another floor as well as one of the CNA's. Tomorrow if they float, will be my turn. I'd rather get called off, but we don't have a choice.
    The census is low all over the Hospital.
    I guess on one of the floors, there has been been an outbreak of GI problems ( I think it;s the Surgical/trauma floor). Thta's Not a GOOD THING!!

    Beth & Marilyn--Sorry to hear about the both of you & feeling a bit under the weather with various allergies. My allergies bother me often, also, but they are just the nose running/stuffyness---nothing major--usually.

    Geez. I really don't feel like working tonite!!

    Marilyn, hope the inspection goes well; we had our house inspected a couple of years ago, also for a home equity loan--it was a woman & she kind of just breezed thru. Didn't seem to be all that thorough. DH was shocked that our little home was worth so much!!

    Did I tell you all about the EXCITMENT we had over at our house the nite before Xmas Eve???? We were in the living room & heard this huge CRASH!!
    DH thought our chiminey fell down as it needs some work done. Well it was NOT the Chiminey!!
    The 15 yr old girl next door was in the driver's seat of the van in the garage next door. They were coming home from shopping, I guess. Mom got out & the girl moved over. Mom told her to pull the car forward a few inches, so she could open up the rear door. Apparantly, Hope became flustered & put her foot on the accelerator & put the car in reverse instead of going forward!! Thankfully, Mom was not standing in the back of the car, but to the side. Hope ran that van right thru the back of the garage & smack down on the grass in the back yard!!! What a sight!!!

    What a mess!! DH has been helping Mike get things settled---they have to first see if the structure is even still stable!!

    Suzy, what happened with the cat? Did you have to have him put down? I know how painful that decision is--believe me.

    Siri, Are you feeling better?

    Adrien, are you still on Cloud Nine??

    Renee, are you getting some sleep again tonite, or is it loud yet again??

    Welll, need to run along for a bit.
    I'll be back

    Hey everone, morning.

    Still on break. Dreading today actually. Starting to pack up to day to move to a new city. But first I'm going to go out with my boyfriend and his grandma for lunch, then track down my immunization record in one of the cluttered spaces in my apt.

    I hate moving...ahh!!! Packing up and super cleaning the apt. for inspection sucks, unpacking is much better. Jan 2 is the last day at home. Wish I could fast forward to the New Year.

    3 more days till my birthday...yippee...

    Hope everyone will have a more adventurous day then me....lol.

    Commuter- Hah your tidying up, and I'm trying to empty it out...wish I was in your boat ....oh well hope u get a great appreciation rate...money money moneeeeyyy...

    good evening all!
    i'm actually off to bed in a minute as it's now almost 10.30pm here in oz.
    sorry to read so many on the sick list in recent days. healing thoughts coming your way! ((((hug))))
    mary ann, how awful for your neighbour!!! thankfully no -one was injured.
    i'd emailed you the other day, and once again, it was returned to me?????? so, i have no idea what's going on!!
    we're feeling the after effects of too much food and cheer over christmas here! lol my belly is about ready to explode!!! lol you almost feel guilty for having such abundance when so many others go without.
    we've enjoyed cooler weather over the past several days, thankfully. in fact, you wouldn't believe it, in some places it snowed!!!!!! snow!! in australia during summer???!!!! unheard of!! we've gone from raging bushfires in places to snow in others!! weird!
    hope the 'sickies' soon recover and are back to enjoying optimum health.
    jnette, good luck with the polypectomy!
    to all who come by later................ have a good day!
    cheers................

    grace,
    that's funny--i also emailed you a couple of days ago & it also was returned to me.

    i guess, we'll just have to pm each other.
    i never realized it was so hard to email internationally.
