    It's still hot and humid summer in Florida, but when it finally does change it will be gorgeous too. Then those tourists who left Maine will be down here.

    I hope everyone has a nice day!

    [font="comic sans ms"]i actually had labor day off this year. but had to work the weekend, of course. it was absolutely horrid on saturday....don on vacation (out of country), and admin. out of town...nurses calling in, and 2 cna's to care for 44 residents on a dementia unit. one resident completely out of control, 2 incident reports to fill out by 10am....and more to complain about but who wants to recap that??? lol!:uhoh21:

    today i have nothing on the agenda except to finish laundry and to do some more reading and dosage calc. testing is tomorrow am, and i don't want to have to retake this time. the reading is overwhelming, of course, but when isn't it? haha!

    hope you all have a great day today! with sunshine and flowers where ever you are!:flowersfo :icon_hug: :flowersfo

    Well, 1 1/2 hrs. until this shift is over!! I'm really tired tonite, so I'll be glad to get home. I was offf 4 nites, so it's sometimes hard for me to get back into things!! I was Charge tonite. We were full so that was a good thing!!

    I can't believe that Labor day is gone & that we will be into fall--as a matter of fact, our temps have been down all ready!! It's actually been quite nice. That's not to say that our warm weather is completely over--it's not--just not as intense and not AS hot as summer.

    jmgrn65-- I thought that was amusing about them wanting to give you off!! Last evening, I was laying in bed, HOPING they would call me!!! Oh well!!

    WEll, I hope you all have a great day!!
    I have nothing special planned.

    Now that I have lost about 90 lbs after my surgery, I need to start working out-----I have a really great bike in my living room & a treadmill also, so need to start using them. I needed to get some of the initial weight off first, but now I feel that should be enough. I still have about 150 lbs to lose, so tthe work outs will help. I had been doing only some more sedantary exercises until now so that I wouldn't stroke out!! Well, we'll see how many minutes I can do on the bike, this first day!!
    Wish me luck guys!!
    maybe I should stick with Beary's Monkeydance!!

    Maybe I should just hide behind the couch, instead!!
    No, No I'll be good!! I'll start the exercises--as I should!!

    My weekend guest & my DH both gained weight on the Holiday weekend--I lost 2 lbs!!
    Not bad

    You all have a great day!!
    See you all later

    Mornin' y'all!

    Off to pre-clinical skills lab this AM...and lecture tomorrow. This week it's a 2-day week, 4 days next week, I think.

    We are learning assessment. I AM NOT WEARING A BIKINI! 2 years ago, I would have....and proudly. Now, no way in heck! My newly acquired fat roll has fat rolls..... (BARF!)

    OK....gotta run! Y'all have a great day!

    Yes TWEETY!!! They are heading your way!! Maine becomes a 'ghost town' after October. That old cold wind starts blowing down from Canada...and there is a mass migration to the south!

    Enjoy the winter!! LOL...I'll be up here freezing my $#@ off, building snowmen while you are being overworked...I am sorry!! But....I'll finally be able to take some time off!! Vacation time is virtually impossible to get here in the summer.....that's our busy season!! Don't's only for 6 months.....they migrate back up to me starting in May

    hope ya'll are doing mighty fine today. it's not daylight as yet, so don't know what's in store out there weather-wise. still too hot, but not as bad as a couple weeks ago. i think i can handle this. looking forward to that fall coolness and the smells that accompany the season!

    coffee........... ....

    Good morning everyone. It sounds like some of you are pretty busy today and others are having an easier day of it. I am still awaiting my license. I have three preceptors: two are off today and one is about 60 miles away. Since it is sooo foggy, she didn't want me driving all that way, so suggested that I do some office work. Can't though because I don't have all the computer access that I need! Yikes. Anyway - gotta call the help desk and see if they can truly help me (the computer illiterate). lol

    Have a great day everyone.

    good mroning.

    Not doing much at the moment.

    I did some housework and stood there watching the rain and my dog who doesn't have enough sense to come in out of it. I've never seen a dog who likes rain so much.

    Our grass is getting green. It seems like it's feast or famine here. We had a week of solid rain that caused tremendous problems, then a month without a drop. Now we've had a few days with a dry day yesterday. Our tree is perking up again.

    Hi all, just finished shift -nice & easy because had BLS all morning! Although the 3 admissions all at the same time when I got back were not so nice! How they ever think you can be in 3 places at once is beyond me!!

    Hope you all have a great day, I'm off to pick the little ones up from their first day back at school!

    Byeeeeeeeeeeee xxxx
