Good Morning! November 27, 2006

  1. Good morning!

    Hope everyone had a great weekend. I know I did and I had to work. Sat we had 6 pts, 2 aides, 3 nurses. Sunday I requested to be called off on low census so I was off for 7-3 but went in at 3 because we were getting busy. Walk in and we have 8 pts, 2 aides and 4 nurses. Yeah, I worked my butt off alright. Sitting on those chairs is hard work.

    My plans today are to take my mom to Indy to look at the apts that I looked at previously. Have to get the "Mom Seal of Approval". Then I plan to go to Borders and get Dec's issue of National Geographic. It's supposed to have a large page spread about nurses in Iraq. I went to Wal Mart, CVS and Walgreens after work and none of those places carried National Geographic. I could get it from the library, but unfortunately, I owe more to the library in fees than it would be for me to go out and buy the magazine.

    Feeling better, thank God. Must have been a false alarm.

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Morning Bethin! Glad to hear you being so chipper this AM! ANd I think it's fantastic about having a good weekend! Now...Have a good week!

    jnette~ thanks for your encouragement to stay in classes. I have no intention of quitting. Not now. Just have to study extra hard, I guess! (Oh goodie!) I called about getting some help in for Mom, and the answer I got was, if there is nothing to actually "do", then it would have to be private pay. Who can afford that, especially right now? But I am going to keep looking. My oldest son is coming this morning to sit with her while I in classes. So I thank God for that one! She had a rough night, and ended up sleeping on the couch.
    I'll make it, good Lord willing and the creek don't rise.... LOL!
    As far as your Mom goes, and you....the good Lord will bless and keep your family in His arms, I know He will.

    Halinja~ Nice to meet you, and thank you for your kind words. I'm looking forward to getting back to know all of you again (school and life got in the way for awhile, and I was gone for quite some time!)

    Tweety! I miss you and your wonderful words every day, and think of you frequently! I am so glad to see you!

    Spacenurse~ what a thing to have to go through! It must have been a horrid feeling, but you did the right thing to get her to talk about something in her past that she enjoyed. God bless and take care.

    Anyhoo~ on my agenda today is a quiz over Addison's, Cushing's and Diabetes, then in the afternoon a Community Exam. Then home again, home again to a million phone calls and appointments! I'm going to try and schedule an appointment made for tomorrow for today so I can get it done and out of the way. These days I have to write everything down so I can remember what to do and when to do it! LOL! (Talk about old lady syndrome!)

    WEll, my son just arrived and cleaned up where my coffee pot ran over :smilecoffeecup:, and is now watching TV in there beside his Gramma. I am going to peruse the boards and look over my study notes before I get a shower.

    All of you have wonderful days ahead and may blessings fall bountifully.

    Talk to you soon! :smilecoffeeIlovecof

    [BANANA]Morning Ladies (and to the gents when they get up)[/BANANA]

    Just up waiting to use the facilities while SO is in the shower.:smilecoffeeIlovecof

    Internet was down most of yesterday :Crash:

    Tomorrow I spend the day job shadowing with M-I-L at NICU. Exciting! She's a really good teacher. I've been going cross-eyed trying to read as much stuff as I can. Really need a new eye Rx, I think. I'm good for only an hour a day, till I have to stop because of eye strain. Glad I'm not a student anymore cause I'd be in trouble. There's so much to learn!

    Christmas is going to be very strange this year. Extended family is getting together on the 16th (had to rent a hall), and my immediate family on the 17th (sister and bil are going on a cruise). Then Marc's family are getting together on the 23rd. So the actual day is going to be kinda anticlimactic.

    Had to come in to say good mornin' to you all. But I won't be here too long this morning 'cause I'm brewing a migraine. Ya know...lights, noise, nausia, nasty headache. So, it's the eye mask, ear plugs and Extra Strength Excedrine. Hard to be on the 'puter with that combo. I had hoped to go to the beach today. Highs to be about 81 degrees but the water temp is in the 60's. Sittin' on the beach would be nice, though. Well, maybe later. We'll see. I'm still too new at being a Floridian not to get a kick out of going to the beach at this time of year. Maybe I'll call my ex in CT and rub it in a bit. I can be sooo evil sometimes. On the other hand I can't make like "My Fair Lady" and say, "Hurricaines hardly ever happen". Will BBL iffin I can.
