Good Thursday Morning 03/17/05

  1. Weezie: We are thinking of you as you will be flying out today. Please have a safe journey and check in when you can.............

    One more day off, then three 12s to go. Planning on driving to Phoenix on Monday, but it will depend on the weather. Want to show Ying the desert areas, also.

    The testing center for her NCLEX exam is literally acorss the street from my couldn't be any closer and people have to drive from all over to get to it...........she is so happy about that, quite nervous before about being able to find the center, and now she can even walk and be there is just five minutes.

    Have safe holiday....................

    Thinking of you, Weetzie!! Hope your journey is safe. Ah, a new page in the weetzie-book!

    Good news for Ying, with the testing center so close!! Hope you get to leave Mon (they're predicting rain Fri and Sat, didn't catch if it'll be clearing by Mon . . .) and it's a safe and beautiful trip! The wildflowers should be just gorgeous, if you go out Victorville direction. Ppl usually travel out there in the spring to see the hills just covered in blooms; lots of poppies!!

    Hi to all, gotta get to bed, not much to tell, just busy today (one LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNGGG case, two short ones). Should be busy tomorrow, too, but we don't have jazz class so will be home in the evening. That'll be unusual!
    We have three cases tomorrow, too, and my colleague is presenting a one-hr class on Palm PDAs for nurses. I'd like to go, if we can re-arrange the schedule a little: start a little late with the second case . . . depends what happens, we'll see.
    Had our appt yesterday to get our taxes done, thought we'd break even or have to pay, as dh got a little unexpected bonus at the VERY end of last year. Our enrolled agent, though, says we'll be getting $$ back, so I'm very relieved! And happy! Not sure how much yet, but I'm just glad we don't have to pay!!

    Ah, gotta get to bed. Take care, all! -- D

    Where is Victorville? I was planning on using the route thru the mountains again...............just like last trip.....99 down to 58 to 15 then 205 into the 5. Will this give me the area that you are talking about?

    Going to try to get to Yosemite in the next week or two also. At least before the real crowds start.............

    Hi everyone

    Suzanne, when does Ying take the NCLEX? I wish her all the best of luck!

    dianah, what great news to hear you won't have to pay anything, that's great!

    lil' girl, how's school going? All done with midterms?

    I had a great spring break. Went home to AZ for the week, just enjoyed time with the family, it was nice, just way too short. The night before I left to come back to school I was just thinking about how this would be my last time coming back to school. That was my last school break that I'd go home for a visit. My LAST! Even now, after 5 years of being away at school, it's always hard that last day at home on break and having to come back here to school. I'm glad I'll be going back home for good after graduation in May.

    I've been so stressed out, I have so much to do! I had class this Mon. and Tues., then have class next Mon. and Tues., then the following week is finals! I have to meet with my preceptor before the 23rd so I can go over the syllabus with her for my preceptorship and get her schedule so I can begin working with her! I'm so excited and so scared! I really hope it goes well. Then I just have so much to do to get ready for graduation too. I have to order my pin, cap and gown, invitations, get senior pictures taken, and I'm sure a bunch more stuff I just can't think of right now. It's just stressing me out, ahhhhhhhhhhh.

    Oh and on top of all that, I'm trying to get myself a job lined up so I can work after I graduate. So stressful

    Had a test yesterday in Leadership & Management, think I did pretty well. Then I have a test next Tues. for Critical Care, so I'll be majorly studying for that starting tomorrow and through the weekend. Then I have to go to my clinical evaluation tomorrow or Fri., I'm going to try to get by there tomorrow, to get that out of the way.

    *whew*, that's what's new with me.

    I hope yall have a great Thursday!

    Bye Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetz...................... .

    Well, I passed out last night after my last post.. got a great night's sleep, though. Must have snowed more last night..we have about four inches out there now.. it all looks so fresh and clean and beautiful. Might get more today, then it's 'sposed to warm up.

    Suzanne.. enjoy the desert blooms ! As many times as I've been out there, I have yet to come when the desert is in bloom ! I hear it's awesome.

    Rain, I'm so glad you were able to refresh yourself, and now the stress in ON, huh? :uhoh21:
    Just keep in mind that this is the last leg of your journey... you'll be FINE. Don't let it all get to you. One step and one breath at a time!

    Dianah, I, too, will be getting $$ back this year.. and a decent amount, too !
    Whooooooooooot !!! One of my bills can now be "paid in full"... I like those three little words.

    Ying takes her exam on Friday, April 8th. It was the first appt that we could get for her. Just can't believe that the center is so close, and neither can she.

    It is supposed to rain again over the weekend, so I will wait until Sunday night to make any diefinite decisions about driving on Monday..........would prefer to do it without the rain, have the following M/Tu/We also off, if need be.

    Good morning, again, to everyone else...................... :Melody:

    Now have to think of breakfast for today, any suggestions?

    Good morning. Taking a break after checking in with my class. I'm posting from Miami, spouse is catching some rays at the pool. We're having a nice time. Went out with nine friends who are here also, and two more arrived. So there's always something going on. Had a nice Italian dinner last night. I didn't sleep well, so I asked for a fan that maybe will lull me to sleep like it does at home. I hate being tired on vacation. But I'm funny, I only sleep well in my own bed at home.

    No time to respond to individual posts as I'm paying by the minute here. LOL

    Have a great day. I'll be thinking of you while I'm out getting suntanned.

    i was out in the yard let me tell you it is windy and cold...looks so pretty out there but you don't stay out there very long
