    There's a cult of us early birds/overnighters on this board don't you know?

    I'm at work goofing off. Got to go to the dentist after work. Finally getting my final crown for the implant. Then I have to come to work to do these blasted "competencies". Today's the make up day as I missed them while I was out of town. What a pain after being up all night, I'm going to be stupid.

    Have a great day!!!

    Hi fellow early birds!
    I called in sick tonight, because I still felt yucky. Haven't called in sick for awhile. Mostly laying on the sofa watching awhile late night TV. They really need to get something good on for us night people.

    Registered online for Fall classes today, to begin finishing up some courses needed to enter the LPN to RN program next year. I decided my restlessness maybe due to the need I have to become an RN. I like my job, but as an LPN I'm kinda limited to being an LPN in LTC the rest of my life. I don't like being stuck. If I stay at the LTC due to my chosing to do so, then okay, but I don't want to have to stay there if I do decide to make a change later. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say.

    I hope you are able to get some sleep later today Tweety, no fun being sleep deprived. Take care secondgeneration and Jnette!

    good morning everyone. happy flag day!

    jnette.......3 am??? do you really get up that early to go to work? what time do you have to be there?

    tweeters.....i don't envy you your day. and yep, you'll be stupider than usual! (you walked right in to that one, my friend)

    hannasmom.........i think i know what you meant about going back to school. i hope you feel better quick!

    2nd generation......glad you are still sticking around with us crazies!

    suzanne.....i promise not to bombard you with questions this morning but that's only because i have to get ready soon to take trey to buffalo!

    since we decided that trey and i are going alone, i am leaving bryan with the dishes, bunny cage and vacuuming. at least it will be a break from my regular routine. now, i just gotta keep myself from trying to do all that before i leave and just leave it for him for once.

    deb.....you there? dh get back okay?

    liza......how are you feeling?

    leslie.........come out chickie. i got a question for you and kate......i was laying in bed thinking last night about how we are outsiders in our family and i was wondering if you guys feel guilty. i mean, you all know my story and i still feel badly sometimes, like i should just "forget it" all for the peace of the family. i did that for years though and all that happened was i suppressed a lot of emotions and ended up exploding with them in a way. besides the fact that my kids wouldn't be safe, but barring that.....i do feel guilty and responsible for so many things that have happened in my family.

    okay, so enough of that depressing stuff. i am going to try not to think of that today. trey and i are going to take some praise and worship music with us in the car that i haven't had a chance to listen to since i got it. this will be a good time to try it out.

    i feel better this morning than i have in a few days in the am. maybe i caught up on my sleep last night finally...i don't know. in any case, it's a good day to feel good since i'm driving. driving makes me tired and if it's warm out, it's even worse. of course, we're supposed to get storms and if you think i'm jumpy about them when i'm inside my house, you should see me when i'm in a car and it's thundering and lightning around me!!! <------that'd be me!!! lol!

    so, qod....driving......do you like it? is it a sort of respite for you? what do you do while driving? do you speed? are you super careful? i go through phases. i really enjoy it, but lately it makes me so tired to drive for very long. i love to listen to music and i sing all the time. i'm sure i look hilarious to other drivers but i don't care. i don't go over 7 miles over the speed limit unless literally everyone around me is and then i'll set the cruise so i'm just cruising with them (below the radar! lol!) i am not an agressive driver but i do get upset and will use my horn when people do dumb things and put me in danger. i can be super careful but it's usually when i'm in an area where i know the police are often. otherwise, i think i am just a "normal" type of driver. i do eat in the car a lot too which i don't like to do but sometimes it helps wake me up. oiy! i cannot stand to be tired when driving. i hope that doesn't happen today.

    better go catch up with some other threads and get in the shower. it's getting late already and i am not sure of where i am going. i visited mapquest last night and it seems easy enough but this is a different office from last time!

    hugs all around........

    Go for it, Hannasmom! I did it. It's a very freeing experience. School seems long, but when you are done, it's like it's all so long ago! It's like childbirth! LOL! Good luck!

    Liza, I'm glad you are feeling better. My cramps are easing, still have a small headache, but I think I'll be well enough to go to work tonight. This bug lasts about two days.

    Suzanne, it's fun to see your pics. It's kinda like arm chair travel I enjoy seeing exotic lands. Thailand is so pretty, plus you have cute "kids".

    CNM2B, I don't care much for driving, especailly here in the city, real wild drivers. But I do love long drives in the country. Some real gorgeous country here in Oregon.

    I think I have finally made up my mind to go back to school. Glad I registered yesterday. I really do want to sign RN behind my name, it will feel good when I accomplish this goal. I can still remember how good it felt to become an LPN. Very fulfilling. Thanks everyone for the encouragement!

    Mornin' everybody!
    I just got back from taking my male dane to the vet for his "male-bonding experience". He was none too happy and neither was I, but it had to be done...
    Now I have class from 9:30 to 4:30p, have to run back and pick him up, and be at work by 6p till 10:30p.
    Yes, I have a full day ahead! Way too much to do when all I really want to do is crawl back in bed and sleep..... :stone
    Hugs and love to you all!
    Have a great day (or night, in some cases!)

    Good morning, everyone!

    Jnette, I love the kitty! I think it's how I've felt during several moments this morning!

    Tweety, good luck w/ the dentist...I'm in avoidance mode @ the moment myself...I really need to have a follow-up for my braces.

    Hannahsmom, good luck! I KNOW you can do it!

    Suzanne, have yourself a great day! I can only hope that your humidity is no worse than what we experience here in the Southern U.S. It's been like a steam bath the past few days. Mushrooms are popping up on the ground & the air feels like I could dish it out with a spoon. Ick.

    Kim, I know what you mean about being an "outsider." I kicked most of my family out of my life as a matter of self preservation back in 1990. They wanted me to pretend, too. I refused (I'd had a suicidal thought...didn't want to go there & so, started counselling) To this day, I don't have contact with my paternal unit. My mother sought & rec'd counselling...we now live in the same city...the fact that she's here & we are talking, etc, with one another is a total miracle!

    Liza, have a wonderful day!

    Julielpn, just take really good care of yourself. We all seem to have a tendency to take care of everyone other than ourselves!

    gotta go. I'll check back later!
