    Quote from clemmm78
    day wasn't the greatest because my first patient ended up having horrid veins and I just couldn't get her blood.
    My first day alone in home care. I got the notoriously never-satisfied CA patient who had to have a lab draw. I was SO NERVOUS - she was SO critical. I finally got the stick, ran it up to the lab, and found out I had drawn it INTO THE WRONG TUBE! Had to go back and stick her again. By the time I got out of there the second time I guess she felt sorry for me (Lol) cuz I was sweating bullets and almost ready to cry

    . . . of course I had to show ID and sign away my first born to get it at the pharmacy. steph
    Oh my gosh, that bad is it? What, do they have a national database, do they have it under double key/ pyxis yet?

    SUURRRRE you have a cold, wink wink

    I hope you feel better!

    Quote from MLF
    ....When my dd told her pastor who changed my tire that noc he told her "Aww, that is his future MIL he helped." Funny you made almost the same remark.
    hmmm, interesting, lol...

    Quote from CHATSDALE

    Hey Zoeboboey. Thought I was going to get on real quick to get my husbands vote in before midnight. Put in the vote and realized hey it is after midnight on the Eastern standard time, so my vote is for Saturday. Well that is just how my last two days has gone. It seems like everytime I get on this computer it freezes up. It has been raining cats and dogs here. My sons baseball coach is obsessive, first we went to practice in the gym, then it cleared for 45 minutes so we drove to a practice field, then it started raining again so he wanted to go back to the gym. We just left. There were practice fields where we where practicing in the gym, but he wants us to drive 5 minutes down the road and go there. No body else was practicing, we have been under severe thunderstorm warnings all day just about. He also wants to practice in the morning, but I told my son we are not going. It suppose to rain all day tomorrow to. So I guess he will have them running back and forth from the field to the gym again. This guy though just does not know when to stop these are 11 and 12 year olds. He practices everyday except Wednesday and Sunday. He wants them at practice at 5:15 pm(him and his kids are never on time) and then he won't stop until 8 pm. I don't think he realizes these kids have homework and test to study for. All of his kids are home schooled. Well sorry for the rant. Guess I better get to bed.

    Hi guys! I am sooo happy - I am now home after 8 months - have a week's holiday before I start my new job - I am so excited I can't tell you. Am spending this weekend unpacking and cleaning so if I don't appear again it's because the dust monster got me! lol

    I voted for your hubby Justthere - hope votes from the UK count!

    Best wishes to everyone - yay, I'm home!

    Good Morning I hope everyone has a good day. I am working extra on the floor today. Just wishing that phone would ring and they tell me they don't need me. sigh... I don't think it is going to happen.

    Morning, All:
    I still haven't gotten the call I was expecting, to schedule the interview for the CM position. I am going to call that recruiter back, and find out what the deal is. It's irritating as h***, to get called about a job....only never to hear from the prospective employer again.

    I know I am impatient, but with each passing day I am having to deal with my current job THAT I HATE, I am on the brink of walking out. And doing that would be cutting my own throat to spite myself. As bad as my job is, being unemployed again would be even worse.

    good morning all. CsMgr1, I hope it all works out. YOu're right though - it is frustrating.

    I'm getting ready to do another day of home care. I hope that any bloods I have to draw will be easy to get.

    It's grey and blech outside, so I'll just have to make my own sunshine.

    Have a god day everyone.

    greetings from "down under!"

    it's here now. my saturday was cooler than the past several days. more like the autumn it's supposed to be.

    dd came for a visit in the afternoon. we took the two dogs for a walk and enjoyed some mother/daughter time together. as we were walking along the footpath, this car came roaring up along the road tooting it's horn and two guys yelling and screaming and waving their arms about. we were taken aback. next thing, the car stops further up the road and they both jump out of the car, still carrying on, and one of them pulls him pants down and points his bum in our direction!!!! idiot!!!! we just ignored them and continued to walk along the footpath and walked right past them not blinking and eye or paying any attention to them whatsoever. any fool stupid enough to "moon" a nurse, is wasting his time! seen more bare bums than he'll ever see in his entire lifetime!!! idiot!!! so, their attempt to shock and dismay fell on deaf ears and eyes!!!! they got back into their car and drove off. i suspect feeling rather stupid and foolish like the idiots they are! no response from us mate! take it somewhere else! :stone

    apart from this little bit of street theatrics, we encountered no other interruptions!

    hello there fone! i can sense your happiness at being back home and looking forward to the new job. good luck with it! there's no place like home, is there?

    cse, hang in there hon. keep focusing on the outcome you want and believe!

    jmgrn, hope the shift is smooth for you. think of the extra $$$'s.

    justhere, here's hoping for a good result for your dh! *fingers x'd*

    g'day zoe! hope the weather doesn't hit too hard up there!

    to all who follow .... enjoy your saturday!

    i'm off to bed soon to read my book and slowly drift off to dreamland!

    stay safe, healthy, and happy!

    cheers ................

    Good morning, everyone! I need to finish doing the taxes and pop them in the mail today. Nothing like leaving things to the last minute.

    Good Morning everyone. I just got home from my shift and my Jack Russell gave me a present...A dead mouse on the foyer floor! Gross! I almost lost my stomach...I did not have the heart to scold him. He was so proud of himself..."Look what I got for you mommy!". Not what I wanted to do when I walked in.

    The unit actually had a slow night, which meant a long night.

    We are waiting for a late winter storm to hit us. It is supossed to begin this evening and last until Monday late afternoon. Total accumulation is anywhere from 12 to 14 inches or 14 to 18 inches depending on what station you listen to. Bleckkkkk! Not looking forward to that when I get out of work on Monday morning. Just what I need after a 12 hour shift. I get to clear 14 to 18 inches of snow off of my vehicle! Yea for me!

    Anyway, off to bed. I hope everyone has a great day!
