Good Morning Nov 12

  1. Well I just got in from work and had to look and see if anyone had started today's thread yet. No one had so I will.

    Work was great tonight. I guess my little black chaos cloud that has been following me from ER to ER has finally lifted. I didn't Fly out a single patient tonight, no one coded, no one was intubated and no multi casualty traumas.

    Came home and found my babies passed out all over the house and hubby snoring on the couch. Put the kids in there proper sleeping spots and nudged dh on to bed.

    I may even go that way soon myself.

    Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

    Good morning, babynurselsa! Thanks for starting the Good Morning thread! I'm glad the night went well for you, and not crazy. Get some rest!

    OK, since it seems winter is swooping down on most of us lately (except for cariad, hmph!!), here are

    homemade muffins (you can smell them throughout the whole house!!) of all kinds, with butter/smart start/jellies and jams to your heart's delight.

    Coffee, tea, fresh-squeezed orange juice

    Ambrosia apples, sliced just right (I just discovered these in the store, they're wonderful!), and bananas.

    Add whatever else you like! Hope everyone has a good day, I look forward to reading about what's going on in your corner of the world today. -------- D

    Good Morning sorta as it is 11:41 p.m. My dd and I just got in from seeing Shawn Colvin - wow, what an awesome acoustic performance. She can make that guitar sound like an orchestra. And her voice. Plus she is funny. Gonna have to buy some more cd's . . .

    It was foggy on the way home and I saw 3 deer in 3 different places - fortunately they didn't run in front of me.

    Babynurselsa - glad your shift went well. Dianah - winter is here too Just stoked the fired. Sue - I think you need some sleep hon.

    TeeHee! Already on a roll, I see!
    Good morning to all of you early birds......Good to see ya this AM! I'll be over for breakfast in a sec....but then I have to run off to work .

    When I get home, I need to hop back to yesterdays thread to check all this out and what has Sue on a possum roll this AM....LOL!

    Anyhoo~ Clinical went the same as the day before. One one in postpartum, so we left early. I need to finish that paperwork and then get busy on the other things I have made a list for me to do. We have an Exam Monday AM, and I want to be prepared for that, so I am calling off work tomorrow to study. I know I shouldn't, and we surely do need the money, but I don't know what else to do...I suppose I could fail and work in LTC on a dementia unit the rest of my life..... OR......I could give up some of hte perks a paycheck brings and call in once in awhile and keep my grades up and eventually go into Surgery where I belong and what I love.... contest for me.

    Well, I have enough time to brush my teeth and head out the door....I'll catch all you folks later!
    Have a wonderful day!
    PS: Jnette~ I'll update you on Amanda as soon as I can....she's got quite a story going on! LOL!

    Good morning.

    Good luck with studying this weekend Julie. The sacrifice will be worth it. Don't feel guilty.

    Steph. Shawn broke through with "Sunny Came Home" and won the grammy that year for Record of the Year, which was a major award, especially for a folksie type singer. I got that album and always meant to get more.

    I'm off to work this morning. Boo. I'm way up there on the float list, if not first to float by now. No biggie.

    Good Morning one and all! I hope everyone has a great day. I am ready to start a day of chores around the house. Believe me, after being gone a week there are plenty.
    I just have one question for my friends here on the board. Why oh why, did no one tell me how out of shape and brain dead one can become after a long lay off. Seriously, the flabby legs and butt are telling me I have not pounded the floor on a regular basis but the muscles are slowly coming back. My brain is another matter entirely. Silly me, I really thought I was supposed to read an order or hear one, not just know a physician likes it that way. I thought that went out with our giving up our seats for physicians. I think I have made one or two physicians angry this week, I actually told one to write the order, then it would be done, I could not read his mind and did not know his preferences. He told the HN I was "a tuff old bird." At least she laughed and told him, "yes, and it seems like it could get lots tougher before I settled in." I have news for her and him, I have too many other things to keep in mind, so unless it is a protocol or he writes it, I do not think I will have the time to just "know" what he wants. Otherwise, I am having a good time. The patients are sick so they really appreciate every small gesture of caring. The other staff are getting used to me a little, my "country" talk is not so eyebrow raising.
    I hope every one has a good week. I can hardly believe Thanksgiving is so close. I have no one to really cook for this year. I do not know what Christmas will be like, everyone has so much on their schedule right now. Keep me in your prayers and thoughts as I do so many of you. Have a blessed day!
