Good Morning October 05, 2006!

  1. Good morning

    Today is S.'s birthday - he's one of my best friends. I wished him last night - but I think he had his phone off. All I kept getting was his mailbox

    I have an interview in about 8 hours so I'm off to bed soon.

    Here's your song for the day! Remember to rate any videos you see (and if you feel inclined, leave a comment too) - tells the people making/posting the videos if they need to improve or do a better job etc.

    See y'all laters... :zzzzz

    Sniffy (the youtube addict).

    Well, it's Thursday all ready!!
    Time is really flying by this year

    I'm at work and again extremely busy. I really do think that in the last 3 wkks our usually high acuity has increased again!!
    We only have an 18 bed unit, but out of the 18--12 of them are on Precautions--mainly Contact. Also 12 or 13 of them are complete care pt's-- complete with g-tube feedings, trachs and the whole 9 yards.
    Most of them are from nursing homes.

    I actually do have two oncology pt's tonite--one getting Chemo, the other neutropenic--post chemo.

    Well, no use in complaining, I guess; it doesn't change anything.

    It's just that with the new added paper work from this week, it makes it difficult. At least tonite we have 2 CNA's instaed of just one.

    Nothing special planned for Thursday. I'll be off Thurs & Fri nite, NICE!!
    After work this AM, DH & I going to several places to shop--Menards--a Home store similar to LOWE'S. Then a few other stops.
    Eventually we'll make our way home.

    Hope all of you Premium members out there will come join us in the thread!!

    Roy, hope you'll leave us with another GREAT Song of the Day!! I really enjoy your choices.

    Well, I'll be back but got to run right now.

    See You all

    G'day! From me here "Down Under!" Hope the rest of your shift goes smoothly Mary Ann. Have fun shopping!
    It's now late thursday afternoon here. I'm going off to prepare our evening meal shortly. We're having steak with jacket potato and other assorted veggies. Just think, while we're eating our tea (evening meal) you mob "up/over" will be eating your breakfast! Or, is it still only really early morning thursday "up/over?" I think we're about 14 hours ahead of the US west coast. Thereabouts anyway.
    Ok, must dash!
    Enjoy your thursday everyone!

    It's still a little too early here in Chicago, to have breakfast. It's about 0230 here in the Midwest.

    We turned cooler here on Wednesday, so when I came to work at 2300 it was only about 57 degrees and EXTREMELY Windy!! (Hense, the Windy City)!!
    I, for one, am not looking forward to our Winter!! fall is nice, tho even that is a bit cool for me lately!!
    But I dread the thought of ice & snow!!

    Enjoy your steak dinner!!
    Sounds delish!!

    Roy, Good luck with the interview! Mary Ann has already started the GM thread! lol She musta just beat you to it.
    I've tried to watch the videos/songs you post, but ............ It wont let me!!! Do I have to "join up" before I can see the videos/hear songs? Or, is it just my computer I wonder?

    Actually Roy beat Mary Ann by four minutes. Mary Ann was probably typing as Roy posted his. I merged them.

    It's a work day for me. I hope that everyone has a good day.

    Good song Roy. I can't remember the Indian actresses name, but she is stunningly beautiful.

    Good morning everyone! I'm up...I don't know why but here I am. Still dark out and about 50 degrees and very breezy out there. Don't have any plans for today (yet) but I'm sure I'll find some stuff to do around the house and outside as well. Trying to decide if I'll make coffee to wake up or go back to bed.

    Gracey--I loved the piccys in your gallery. You looked magnificent in that dress.

    Good morning, all.

    Goodluck with your interview, Roy.

    Nothing much new with me, just school and work. I am sooo glad that I will be able to cut back to 32 hours next spring and hopefully maintain that for Nursing 3-5. It's not as bad as I thought it would be working full-time right now but I anticipate it will get busier as the material becomes more challenging.

    Tomorrow is my final for Nursing I then it's onward and upward. This has been a fairly interesting and not that difficult session (a lot of A&P review combined with "normal" across the life cycle). We get into the "new" stuff starting with Nursing II and the dreaded clinical!

    I hope you all have a wonderful day and I wish I had the chance to stop by more often.
