Good Morning, Thursday March 15!

  1. Ah, it may be a race on to start the Thursday thread as I see Zoe and Mary down there . . .

    Well, Good Morning to all you Premium Members!

    No breakfast yet. I'm munching on sunflower seeds.

    Had a quiet night - everyone went to bed and I got to watch what I wanted on tv. . . which meant Jay Leno and HGTV and CSI.

    What are Mary and Zoe doing up so late????

    Gmornin Steph and to everyone else..

    Going to file my taxes today and finally apply for my citizenship...I've been in this country since I was 13 (11 yrs now) and haven't applied yet. LOL I don't want to be a green card holder all my life so what the heck I'll finally be a TRUE American/Canadian (can't forget my birth place).

    So hows everyones day so far...whos getting the lattes at Starbucks or Seattle's Best this morning???

    Hi Cherish . . .wow, you are just a kid. My oldest son is 24. My youngest son is 5.

    I'm feeling guilty about staying up so late . . .in 24 hours I'll be hearing the alarm clock to wake me up at 0145 to get ready for work. I really should be sleeping.

    Latte sounds good . .. . but in a few hours.

    GOOD MORNING, LITTLE PEEPS!!

    Another busy nite!! All of our pt's tonite are complete care---only one gets up and that's with lots of assist!!
    We did have 2 CNA's scheduled & then they tried to take one to give to a floor with 15 pt's & they all ready had 2 CNA's so that would make 3!!!!!
    So where is the fairness in that????????????? I don't get it!
    Finally they let us keep our 2, but then an hour later they called back & said they were admitting a sitter pt. somewhere & our 1 CNA had to go sit. I really think this is so unfair!!!
    Our acuity's call for for 5 RN's, but we only have 4. Go figure!! Perhaps we don't have an "IN" with management!! The PM Charge even called our Manager at home to complain.:angryfire

    Well, that's my rant for the nite!!

    Steph, Thanks for starting the thread!! I hope you will get some sleep!!

    Cherish hope you have a good day!!

    I will get some coffee on for all of you day-type folk!!
    O little decaff for others

    and we need some tea for others!!

    It ain't Starbucks, but I hope it will be good!!

    I included a bit of a breakfast treat!!

    Enjoy

    Hope you all & all to come have a really good day!!
    They are coming this morning to rebuild our chimney that seems to be crumbling!!

    Gosh darn it Mary . . that chocolate donut is looking good . . . . . .

    I'm avoiding carbs right now . . . . . good thing it is just a photo.

    Sleep . . .hmmmmm . . . .that would be nice if I was sleepy.

    Cherish - I see from some other threads you are posting on tonight that you served in the military. But you aren't a citizen yet. I'm confused.

    Hey Steph

    You do not need to be a citizen to be in the military. If you are an officer then yes you do but enlisted members do not need to become a citizen unless they serve I think over 8 yrs. I only served 6 yrs on and off in the Army.

    I'm a legal resident (green card holder), they allow legal residents in the military. Now they passed a law that if your former military or in the military you can get your citizenship free (about time!). It would have been over 500 for me to file it and all.

    Mary-oh those pastries look so good...cheese danish mmmmm....

    Yup I was a diesel mechanic. I worked on Humvees, LMTV's (there the boxy looking trucks you've probably seen on t.v.), HETs, Hemmets, all types of diesel vehicles. I basically worked on trucks and also did PLL and ULLS clerk, which is maintenance supply since we didn't have a supply personal for a year in our motor pool.


    I would show you what they look like but don't know how to insert pics in the post. Maybe you can help me Mary?

    Cherish,
    Sounds like kind of interesting work

    To insert pics like I did for coffee, I do it this way--don't know if it's the way others do it or not.

    I will minimize my all-nurses screen; then I go to yahoo search & click on IMAGES
    Then I type in what I want "Urns of coffee" for example; Then it comes up with the images; I find one I like & right-click on it. Then I highlite COPY;
    then I go back to my allnurses reply page & place the cursor where I want the image. Then I right click again & highlite PASTE & there it is!!!

    That's how I do it. Others may have different ways.
    I have found that some other search places---I don't get the images I click on--get those red X's!! That's why I use yahoo.

    Hope that was clear!!!!!Hope you have a good work day
    Tweety--Good Morning to you!!

    Mary. Good morning to you also!!
