Good Morning Thursday Oct. 27!

  1. a quick good morning to you all, as i have to head off to bed. i worked 2 hr ot then ran to the school's fall concert: band, bells, choir, string ensemble --- oldest ds sang in choir :d , got home at 9:00 pm, ate some dinner, been puting and getting music ready for tomorrow (i always re-type the words -- as a review -- and put each piece into the form: intro last 8, voice a & b, horn solo, etc).

    busy schedule at work, then i'm leaving an hour early, as our jazz class has a halloween program in the cafeteria! woot! am still working on our costumes; i was going as an equestrienne . . however i tried on the wool coat and the white shirt w/ascot . .. they were both snug. the breeches fit ok. don't know if i can get the boots on, my feet have grown at least 1/2 inch since i had my kids (which was just at the end of my riding). my friend is supposed to bring me some boot pulls (to pull them on with) and a bootjack (to get them off with). we'll see how things --ahem -- come together.

    i told dh we should go as tourists: crazy sunglasses, straw hats, hawaiian shirts, shorts, sandals w/socks, cameras around our necks, noisy --- you know what i mean!! i'll see if i can round up some props.

    meanwhile, i need to get to bed. will check in tomorrow, probably during lunch. we'll probably get home too late from the program to check in (or i'll be too ready for bed!).

    later, possum blossoms! :d :d

    Good Morning Family:Melody:

    Of course, I'm at work!! It's pretty busy as usual but not awful for me. I have a couple of people getting blood, but ther're doing OK. I do have opne pt. who is very Pesty!! I feel bad for her, tho. She destroyed her liver with ETOH and Drugs and now her ammonia level is off the charts, so she is pretty much out of it. She is super forgetful You can give her pain med and even as you are walking out of the room she is asking for her pain med!! Her mind is just gone & she's really pretty young--40's. I feel kind of bad for her--being this young!!

    I work again tonite, so I don't really have much planned for the day. I have a little produce shopping to do as well as the meat market.

    I wasn't around much yesterday & still haven't read yesterday's thread.

    Hope you are all well.

    Dinah--sounds like a good costume!! I hope you're getting some sleep!!
    How I would love to be asleep right now!!
    Have Fun!!

    Well, see you all later.

    I'll leave y ou with some fresh fruit, whole grain muffins
    and feshly brewed coffee, and decaff.
    Some tea for a few of you & a beer for Weetzie!!

    By the way, Weetzie, Have you found a job so you can saty here bear to your DEAR FRIENDS!!!?

    See you all

    Good Morning Possums!

    Mary Ann, those kinds of patients can be a real challenge. At least your compassionate, many nurses carry the attitude "they did it to themselves why should I feel bad for them".

    Dianah, Halloween these days is as much for the grownups as the kids isn't it? Sounds fun.

    I'm off to work soon.

    it must be early everywhere else as there are only 3 posts and its after 5am here. a very slow night, not used to it at all. dont know where all the patients are, who are usually queued up in er waiting for beds....and its not even raining!!!!!!!! thats about the only thing that keeps them indoors.
    never mind, back tonight for another night of allnurses....I hope. internet access is as contrary as everything else here, looking forward to my bed, but got a realtor coming to view the condo first as we have it up for sale. heres hoping..
    dianah...could have posted you real props from here for your costume, plenty of palm trees!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Morning! I'm at work. It's the only time I get in here early enough to keep up. Just can't concentrate at home with my toddler running circles around me.

    Dianah: I love the tourist idea. Halloween is the best, I don't think we will every grow out of it. I'm going to Halloween party where our favorite cover band is playing. They play 80's hairband music so I'm going as a fallen angel (that's a song). Maybe I will win for being the corniest one there who knows.

    Mary Ann working again! At least you are having a good night. Mine has been rough. I have a crumpy patient. She is quiet for the moment though which is why I'm here of course.

    Mornin Tweety I never get in here early enough to chat with you. Hope you have an easy day. Take care.

    I made a big fruit salad for everyone to enjoy so dig in.

    Morning to all!

    Just a short note.
    Jack Frost has been coming here quite often lately.
    Glad the White Sox won...even though I was working when they did. Gave my pts a high
    Going to sleep early...I'm not a meeting in the middle of the day.

    mary anne--you got me thinking about one of my deceased pts.......older lady, had hurt her back, and took tylenol and tylenol based products. ended up with liver failure and all that. good god, she musta suffered....but was dignified to the end. i wish i could have her strength when it's "my time".

    work wan't too bad tonite.

    those of you who should be so. this means you!

    til later

    Good morning, everyone.

    I'm just hanging out and doing the usual housework stuff today.

    Work was unable/unwilling to accomodate my parttime needs, so I'm going to put my resignation letter in when I get back from Hawaii. From there, I don't know what I'll do yet. I'll just take my time.

    It's sunny and chilly out today, but not in a bad way.

    You all have a great day.

    Hello Family !

    Another day down.. has been busy the last two.. giving all the flu shots on top of everything else. Then had to stay over an extra hour today to watch a learning program on CD from our company.. WITH a quizz at the end... sheeeeeeesh. Just what I wanted to do. I just wanted to go HOME!!!
    I pull a long one tomorrow and wanted to enjoy what little I have of this afternoon..

    BUT... I passed the quizz with a whopping 100% ! And that turned my frown into a smile in the end.

    Freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezing here this am ! 28 degrees and our first major killer frost. Glad all my winter clothes are up from the basement and put away.. got my favorite flannel jammies on and fixing a nice cup of hot chocolate. Just going to veg out here with you guys this afternoon.. have yesterday's thread to read yet.. was too sorry to check in here yesterday after I got in..

    OK.. I'll be back in awhile.. gotta check on my hot chocolate !

    Kat... sorry your ppl weren't willing to work with you. That must mean but one thing.. there's something BETTER in STORE !!!
    Go enjoy Hawaii and don't give it another moment's thought. It will all come to pass.

    Yes, Weetz.. do tell us if you get to hang here with us still, or what?

    And Kay... that sure was a short trip !!!
    Did you get to talk with anyone in the real estate business about renting?

    OK.. I'm really outta here for a few. TTYL !
