Good Thursday Monring 03/24/05

  1. Returned in one piece, with Ying and the kids............
    Beautiful weather in Phoenix, but definitely glad to be here. Loaded the car with as much as it would hold, the pieces of furniture are scheduled to be picked up on Monday and delivered here........will be able to give up the storage area then......
    My living room is comical at this much stuff all over, but glad to finally have it all with me. All of the books and DVDs are finally here. And the rest of my shoes, now I don't have to go shopping for any.

    Have a great day.............

    Hi Suzanne - glad you are getting more settled.

    Our spring storm with snow, wind and hail finally passed and we had blue ski and a rainbow.

    I made spaghetti carbonara tonight with a nice chianti - still sipping that.

    My oldest son is playing "Candyland" with the 3 year old, who is in seventh heaven with TWO big brothers.

    Happy Thursday!

    Hi everyone!

    Suzanne, glad to hear you had a good trip and are home safe now.

    steph, that's so sweet they're playing Candyland with him! I love going home on my breaks and playing with the kids, so relaxing!

    PresC, mmmmmm chocolate sounds yummy, it makes everything better huh? What kind of practice tests are you doing to prepare for the NCLEX? We have to do these ERI exams online, we have to do the ERI RN Assessment, it's required and we have to pass it before we graduate. The first time I took it, I got a 60 (need a 65 to pass). I was pretty upset about it, but then I learned that the majority of the class didn't pass, only a few people did. The instructors said it was common not to pass it the first time taking it. I take it the 2nd time in a couple weeks. Just trying to prepare for it, taking the practice ERIs and reading all the rationales. It gets so tiring after a while huh? When do you take the NCLEX? Anyway, just wanted to talk with someone that's going through all those practice tests too! Get some sleep, have a good nap!

    I think I'm off to bed too. Finished all my notecards for my leadership/management final that's on Mon. So now I can focus on my final for critical care. I'm so ready for finals to be over with! The weather has been so great the last few days, sunny and nice. I sat outside for a while today, just soaking it all in, what a great feeling!

    Hope you all have a great Thurs.!

    good morning everyone!
    just a quick note today to say hello and then off to clean and take care of a sick boy! my 16 y/o son has an inflammed eardrum that i need to keep an eye on for a while. when he was younger, he had chronic ear i have always been careful with him and his ears...
    i am going to work on my laundry and ironing today and hopefully get my case study and nurses notes done for this week, so i can be finished for monday, and i may start on another paper that is due.
    it's stilll a frigid 30 degrees here, but supposed to arm up by upper 40's today. if it does, i may go to the park and get some rollerblading time in.
    i guess in order to do all this stuff today, i may very well want to get started, huh?
    well, good mrning to all who are here and to all who may come later....

    Good Morning !

    Think it's been a day or two since I've joined you.. just been exhausted from work.. seems like I'e been there every days for the past two weeks. :stone

    Off today (yay!) but back tomorrow.. but I can make it.. I'm off this weekend, so tomorrow I should be good and silly in anticipation. I always get hyper and silly on Fridays afternoons if I'm off that weekend.. my patients and coworkers just roll their eyes.

    Well, stripped the bed already.. good day to hang sheets and a few clothes on the line.

    I'm anxious to start on my Spring Cleaning.. what about you?

    Guess I better go see what else is going on around here while I sip on my coffee.

    Good morning everyone!

    Hi PresC, study hard and enjoy that nap. I think I'll do the same, study and then nap!

    Jnette, only a true German like you would be anxious to spring clean (as if your house is dirty anyway, I know better than that!).

    Good Morning all
    Just got in from Aruba last night, it was spectacular :hatparty: Although a rude awakening to go from 87 degrees boarding the plane to 38 degrees getting off
    The island was beautiful, crystal blue water, sugar sand beach right outside our hotel room door (lots of topless sunbathers :chuckle )
    There was so much to do, but we spent several days lounging on the beach, playing in the waves, went to happy hour every afternoon, of course
    One of the highlights was the snorkeling. There are some gorgeous coral reefs off the coast, and the shipwreck of a WW II German ship that sunk in 60 feet of water which had some incredible coral and beautiful fish living in it.
    We can't wait to go back. Mary, where are you staying on your vacation? You're going to love it!
