    I usually post at about 9 pm here, on the west coast............so don't feel bad. Still trying to get caught up on my other work, and there is quite a bit of it to get done over the next few days.

    Still have to work the next two days, but then get three off again....just love those...........

    Have a safe and Happy Holiday with your families..............where ever they may be............ :spin: :angel2:

    :Melody: Well, it's 130 am here, and I'm mostly wide awake. Just started a load of laundry. Went shopping earlier for some clothes, making my dbf an Easter basket for him to find in the morning when he gets home from work. I won't be here on Easter, so I needed to go ahead and do it now. I'm flying to Kansas later in the morning (1155), to visit my sister.
    I've actually been quite sad today. Haven't done much of anything. I still have yet to pack anything. Originally, the plan was for dbf and I to drive out there. I was SO looking forward to the road trip with him, him meeting the rest of my family. BUT, he couldn't get off work. The polive department denied his request for vacation, saying the are short staffed this week. So, I was sad about that. I know I am going to miss him. I love him with all my heart, and this is the longest we've been apart (thank God he's not military, or I'd be a nutcase when it came to deployments). Then, about 1pm, I realized he ahd to work tonight and probably wouldn't be able to get off work. So then I realized I'd only have a few hours of time with him before I had to leave. He came home from clincial, and laid down with me, and just let me cry. I felt like such a wussie, but oh well...I just really needed to cry and let him know my feelings. I don't feel like crying now, but I know when it's time to say goodbye at the airport, I'm going to be a blubbering mess Or wanting to break out in song "Cause I'm leaving, on a jet plane...Don't know when I'll be back again..." :Melody:
    The Easter basket is going to be cute. It's a really soft bunny, from Hallmark (only 6.99 with the purchase of three cards...). HE has a ribbon around his neck, and it you press his paw, he says "Somebunny loves you", and his little cottontail wiggles. An Easter card I got him, says "Somebunny loves you" on the front, and on the inside, it says "It's me." lol Then I have the sappy, gonna bring tears to his eyes card. I love him. Head over heels, cannot believe I am lucky enough to get to spend the rest of my life with this man. :blushkiss
    Enough lovey-dovey stuff. I'm taking two NCLEX books with me, as well as my psych textbook. I've got some study time on the flights and layovers, so I'll be alright. I will try and check in during the week, but no guarantee I can get online. -Andrea

    Hear a chorus of birds out there this am.. Spring is finally springing !

    Had a good night's sleep, could have slept more, but didn't want to waste any of my day off in bed..:chuckle

    Thanx for B'Fast Mary.. think I'll wait awhile until I have a second cup of coffee, though.

    Aneroo... enjoy your family visit ! Sorry dbf was unable to go. But a bit of separation now and then is good. You'll survive.

    Good Morning - I'm at work too.

    I did drive down after work yesterday to see my daughter's third softball game of the day. This park is weird - huge, with replica's of famous baseball stadiums. My daughter's team played their last game at Fenway Park. It bugged me a bit because there are painted people in the stands at the outfield fence. It seemed eerie and Twilight-zonish to me. The team lost their first game 1-0, tied their second game 1-1 and lost their 3rd game 5-0, all the runs in the last inning. Daughter was bummed - I had her drive home with her brother. I tried to sleep on the way home but no go. Fell asleep hard about 9:15 . . . that alarm at 1:45 was a shock.

    So far two patients in the ER. Hopefully it will be an uneventful day.

    Thanks for reminding me about Easter Baskets . . my 22 year old will be leaving a day early for college and I need to call my husband to get his basket out of the closet and fill it and put it in his car.

    My daughter's team plays again at 10:30 today. I will miss that one.

    Oh - there is a playground at this park where my daughter played and our 3 year old loved it - when I got there last night he was just running from the large sand area making sandcastles then back to the slides. I saw a girl about 7 walk over to him and shake her fist at him and then push him back so he couldn't climb up to get on the slide. I guess my husband saw the same thing - we weren't standing together . . . but we both ended up next to our son and I told that little girl she needed to not shake her fists at my son. Arrgggghh - that is one bad thing about little ones playing with bigger kids.

    Happy Easter!

    Good morning!

    Not much going on today. Went out for Thai food last night with the gang, had the usual Pad Thai (stir fried noodles), which was good. Going out tonight to celebrate a friends birthday at "Dish", a restaurant where you pick out a plate of food and they stir fry it for you, all you can eat.

    In the meantime it's the gym and studing.

    Don't have time to address everyone. But please take care!

    Mama Bear and Poppa Bear come running to defend their lil' cub Danny ! Cute ! Funny, how things like that immediately raise our B/P !!! :chuckle

    Yeppers, Steph, you've got me beat with the 0145 wake-up call. 0300 is bad enough, but tolerable. 0145 would seem just TOO odd for me.. don't know that my body could adjust to that... methinks it would be totally confused and protest loudly.

    Happy Easter to you too !!!

    12 hours only, more days off that way...........also much easier on the children, and their families this way. continuity of care is quite a big thing for them.

    [font=Comic Sans MS]Morning everyone!!! Actually have a wee bit of time this a.m. as I have my coffee and organize my Respiratory lecture notes--big tests on Monday. Today will be spent reading, reading and more reading...same for tomorrow.

    [font=Comic Sans MS]I wish I could say we're in spring-time mode here but we still have some snow on the ground from the other day, nothing is blooming yet...still brown looking. Love to see some color!!!
    [font=Comic Sans MS]
    [font=Comic Sans MS]Looking out the window this a.m. waiting for my coffee to brew I saw 2 cute little bunny rabbits race across the back yard. Must be Mr. & Mrs. Easter Bunny? the other day we had a mommy dear and two young ones right in our front yard--eating a bush but that's OK cos we're going to dig that particular bush up anyway. Soooo cute.

    [font=Comic Sans MS]Anyone know what type of questions to expect on a respiratory exam--besides the ABG's and acid base balance. I know this particular exam is going to be tough--our instructor for respiratory hands out notes and says just follow our assigned reading book--but her notes and the book don't always match. I think she uses other sources to add info for us---makes it kinda frustrating cos you actually can't follow along with the book..spend more time trying to find where she's coming from. grrrrrr

    Hey Suzy !

    You got to see the Easter Bunny !!! No fair. Guess she was trying to hide her eggs under that bush, eh?

    Still at it, are you? Don't envy you a bit...acid/base is a tough one. :stone

    Wish you the best on your exam. Yuk.. exams. Heh.
