Good Morning Monday October 3

  1. Welcome all Premium Members to the Good Morning Thread.

    All I have is coffee -

    It is 1:59 a.m. and I'm getting ready for work - uniform is in the drying, shower is on warming up, 4 year old is in with his sister . . . wishing I was back in my warm bed though and not going to work.

    Happy Monday to you all!

    Morning all

    Morning Steph, just cant believe what strange shift patterns there can be over there. What time will you go to work and what time will you finish. Is it because child care is better managed that way?

    Day off today for me and all the arrangements i made I have cancelled because I am too tired to go far. I have all next weekend off so i will re arrange for then.
    I am going to hairdressers to have high lights done. so will be a blond bombshell by late afternoon well slight exageration

    Hello to all who follow

    Good morning, Ladies.

    I'm off to work today, so not much excitement to report.

    Steph, I agree. I'd rather be in my bed sleeping.

    Mad, have fun at the hairdresser.

    Everyone else, have a great day today.

    Madwife - the hours I work were chosen by the nursing staff themselves and it came up for a re-vote a few years ago and most everyone wanted to keep it the same 3 to 3. It avoids someone having to work a true "night" shift. The day shift folks, though we come in at 2:45 a.m., get to leave by 3:15 p.m. and so are home with the kids in the afternoon. The night shift, which comes on at 2:45 p.m. and goes home at 3:15 a.m. . . . well, I'm not sure about them.

    But here's a little confession . . .. . as I got to work people were surprised to see me. Guess I made a little error and I don't actually work until Wednesday! I feel a little foolish . . .although we have all done it. The last time I did it was over a year ago.

    So, I got my wish . . .I get to go back to bed . .. . with 2 cups of coffee running through my system.

    I have to remember to wake up early enough to call my in-laws so they don't make a trip in here to get my 4 year old.

    Steph. if I did that I wouldn't know whether to be mad at having gotten up so early for nothing, or jumping for joy that I got to go home.

    I'm off to the gym this morning. Then lots of reading and studying today, yuk.

    Kay enjoy your day off.

    Kat have a good day at work.

    Good morning everyone,
    Madwife, enjoy your day off and the time at the hairdressers,
    Cyberkat have a wonderful day at work, I have to go in tonight at 2100 myself,
    Steph, you got your wish, you don't have to work, I've done the same thing (once, twice, maybe more),
    Tweety, enjoy your W/O, I don't envy the studying part.

    Thought this was cute.
    I hope every one has a wonderful day today.

    Good Morning,

    I've been away "idling" if you will.

    Stress is at an all time high, but hopefully I will overcome it soon.

    Have a wonderful day everyone.

    Good morning everyone!

    I hope everyone has a fantastic day, whatever the plans are.

    I'm off to chemistry class this morning...only 3 more weeks! (6 more classes & 2 exams to go!) :hatparty:
    I think I will live in the coffee cup this morning....

    Hi, all! Hope all are doing fine. Me....nose is still draining.

    Gotta go in early, cuz one of the "new" nurses got a bug up where it shouldn't be......and called off for three days. Claims he is sick, but then again, he is c/o he "isn't getting any hours. Hey, 40 a week is good, right? Guess he's ticked cuz his o/t got cut (but he can pick up an extra day...)

    OK....enough of my belly aching. :chuckle I may actually go back to 3-11's! Will keep ya all posted. Wish me luck. I love midnights; I am on my own, no supervisors. wise and life wise, it can be a killer. At least my boss knows I am flexible, and will do what needs to be done.

    Keep a fresh pot of coffee up, ok? Siri, Tweety, and all of you others....take care, and I miss ya.

    I know - it is weird. I read for awhile - I bought the book "Stiff" by Mary Roach . . . it is an interesting but strange read . . now I'm not sure I even want to be cremated - can't we just disappear in a puff of smoke when we die????

    My Dad has his surgery for that 7 cm abd anyeursm today so I'm going to head down the mountain later to visit him.

    Hope you can get in study mode Tweety . . .

    Hello everyone! I've been MIA for a few days here... busy at work, then was off Friday and out of town for a couple days. The BF and I went to upstate NY to visit my alma mater. They were dedicating a new science center and it is absolutely beautiful. I wish I could go back and do it all over as a science major! It was good to revisit the old stomping grounds and show it to my BF. Got back late Saturday and spent Sunday running around doing errands. Parents are on vacation this week so I had to go retrieve dad's car from the park & ride, then pick up kitty to bring her to my place for her own little vacation, though she's been a bit snooty. This morning flopped down and showed tummy but when I went to pat her she hissed at me. She seems to like doing this when she visits me... not very nice seeing as she's supposed to be MY cat. But she misses her daddy and her routine is upset, so I try to be forgiving (she did get scolded for hissing, however).
    Unfortunately being gone on Saturday meant I missed my A&P test, so I have to take it tonight. Then tomorrow I have a test in human growth & development. Argh... studying has been slow. When I finally sat down with my books last night my best friend from HS called and it was one of the few times when her DD was already down for the night, so we were able to talk uninterrupted. By the time I got off the phone I was exhausted, so just went to bed. Guess I'll head out to the park at lunch time with my books. Then after this test tonight will have to come home and bust out the psych book and do some more studying. Busy busy...

    Well, sorry I didn't say hi to everyone individually, but I hope you are all having a great day. Will stop in later..
