Good Morning May 3 2007

  1. Well its been quite a while since I've kicked this particular thread off. Hope everyone is in for a good day. Personally today I give a lecture to a group of elderly people in my church on healthier living with diabetes. This will be my final project for my BSN. Hopefully it will go well.

    Well off to bed, good morning again to all who follow.

    GOOD MORNING, LITTLE PEEPS!!


    Nurseboy, thanks for starting the thread!!
    Good Luck in your presentation! I hope it goes well for you. Will you be graduating this summer?

    I'm at work; Good staffing again tonite!!:wink2: Two nites in a row???I don't know what to make of this!! I'll be off Thurs & Fri nites, but have to work the weekend. That's OK. I don't mind every other weekend. Usually, tho, they pull us a lot on the weekends. My NM works VERY hard at having adequate staffing & retaining her staff ---unfortunately, other NM's do not--& so they keep pulling from us. :angryfire Well--nothing can really be done about it, I guess.

    Commuter, I was reading yesterday's thread-- that is really nasty on there part. I think I would complain--a lot!! Is there no way this can be reversed? It doesn't seem fair to you. maybe you don't want to work Rehab!!:angryfire

    Zoe, I hope you can get some sleep!!

    Yesterday I tried to sleep & just couldn't seem to fall asleep. I didn't really fall asleep until almost 6:30PM & then had to get up at 9:30!! Now, of course, I'm tired!!

    When I get off in the AM, DH & I are going to the Garden Shop for flowers.
    We won't plant them quite yet, but we do at least want to have them. It's still a bit too cold in Chicago to put them in the ground---we can still get some really cold nites. For instance, tonite, it's supposed to go down under 40 degrees. So, we'll plant in a week or 2.
    We'll keep them in a safe place either under the house or in the garage.
    We need to get them, tho, before everything gets picked over.

    We'll also get a couple of tomato plants & maybe some spinach. I don't have much room for veggies, but I do have a bit.

    We do most of the flowers in containers and put them around the back deck & then we have 3 long containers on the side of the garage.
    In the front of the house is the only place that we actually plant the flowers in the ground.

    Well, I'd best get back to work. I still have some of my assessments to chart on the computer!!

    You all have a wonderful day.
    Maybe I'll get back here later.

    Good morning!

    Nurseboy, good luck on your presentation

    Mary Ann, it's spring time down here in Indy. I think it's 50 out right now. It's been humid this week. Supposed to get severe storms today. Hoping we do 'cause I love them!

    Wasn't feeling well and couldn't sleep so I deep cleaned my bathroom - even got down on my hands and knees and scrubbed the linoleum. My mom would be so proud! Wanted to clean the kitchen but I ran out of the Clorox wipes and paper towels.

    Today I'm going to try to register for classes and fill out an application at the agency. Unfortunately, the agency is located in a very very busy area where they are doing major construction work. Going to go to mapquest and see if I can use side streets.

    My mom is having her surgery today. She's scheduled to be there at 0615. Though it's routine (hysterectomy) I'm still worried. My dad is going with her and that's not the best choice she's made. Love my dad, but when it comes to pain he's useless. He actually asked me when I was in the hospital and so sick that my dr wanted me transferred to a larger hospital "if I just couldn't suck it up." :trout: We haven't spoken much since then.

    Mary Ann, did you and dh find a new place to live?

    Mary Ann, did you peek at my baby thread - my four gorgeous nieces.

    Good morning Tazzi. I don't know why I missed ya. I think because you changed your avatar and I usually know people by that.

    How do you get Demon's pictures to show? I tried that with snapfish and I got a bunch of numbers and letters. So I went to photobucket and the best I can do is paste a link.

    Karen, you don't want that healthy crap they call tea. Get a grande cap with lots of cream and fat.

    I only like tea cold with LOADS of sugar.

    Beth,
    I saw the thread, but while I'm at work, I can't get pics to show up---I'll have to wait until I get home to look.
    I was anxious to see the new babies.

    We did not find a new place to live. I guess we have to keep looking.
    The places we looked at in Texas were too much like Chicago--except more south. To be honest. I think DH won't find anything he likes except in Florida--in the Panhandle. That's OK with me, since I also like it there.

    We will still look in maybe North & South Carolina in the fall--but I doubt he will be satisfied there either.

    Get some sleep Beth
