    Hi Guys,

    Well, I'm back.
    The nite is sort of quiet so far--it might be too early to say that since it isn't even 0200 yet here in the Windy city.
    When I came in tonite, it really was a Windy City--also a rainy one!! We had bad weather forecast. It was in the 60's again--wish it could stay this way!!

    For some reason our census went way down tonite--19 pts--last nite there were 32!! They floated a nurse and a cna. Oh well. we'll fill up quick enough.

    I don't have any special plans for wednesday.
    I have this terrible cold, so maybe I'll just get some extra rest today. DH will take my MOM to her pain clinic!!

    The Ortho MD injected my knee on Monday evening--it is better but the steroids sure did shoot my sugar up Tuesday AM.

    well, that's about it.
    You all have a great day!!

    See You

    hi nurse and jnette!

    Thanks for getting the day started.

    It's howling wind and snow outside to night. Trying to get back to business here.

    Feeling much better. Long story but no matter. Only my allnurse friends count anyways....right!

    BRRRRR....need a fireplace tonight.

    Gosh, I don't think roy's gonna fish me out of the lake before it freezes.
    What a dilema....have to save myself. Then get some medicine...lol

    Well hope you both have a great night. Mine will be good tonight....it's the only night I work with an angel....next night and the following 7, it's the devil with a nursing uniform on. Lord help me. Getting very intense and back to the med/surg is looking better all the time. Oh how crazy. Just will have to find strength. LOL
    Shelly
    good day to all who follow me....and bestish of wishes. And lots of snow for insulation...lol

    Good morning!

    Glad your knee is feeling better Mary Ann.

    Hard to believe it's snowing somewhere when it's been in the low to mid-80s here. I have to turn the air conditioner on in the afternoon because it's so hot.

    I'm off to work here myself after 4 lovely days off.

    I'm new to the break room. Could you please explain this devil with a nursing uniform on? It sounds like a very funny story.

    It's 5am where I live and I have yet to get any sleep. Maybe I should do night shifts.

    I wish it would hurry up and get cold and stay cold. I have terrible allergies and this unseasonalbly warm weather is making it worse. I hate Indiana weather! Now I'm pathetic, talking about the weather

    Hope everyone has a good day! I'll be sleeping.

    good morning mary ann, hope you feel better from both the cold & knee and that your night stays q-u, you know the rest, don't want to jinx you,
    hello jnette, hope your workday goes smoothly, btw that is a wonderful picture of steph's danny, thanks for sharing.
    shellyjellyfishbelly, didn't the copter arrive yet to fish you of the lake? the medicinal supply of liquor is rapidly diminishing:d :d :d
    hi tweety, must be nice to be warm (i'm jealous), freezing where i'm at, but no snow, have a good day at work.
    good morning bethin, i'm not sure if shelly is referring to a shall we say "challenging" co-worker, sorry about your allergies, hope you feel better soon.
    back to work for me tonight and tomorrow. i'll be up for awhile and then i'll try and catch some zzzz's later.

    Hello everyone!!! Just heard some rustling outside and heard the neighbor's dogs barking. Looked out the window just in time to see 3 deer in the backyard. How beautiful but they have since disappeared out of sight.

    Hope you feel better soon Mary. I had a nasty cold that lasted weeks. Still have a little bit of a dry cough left from it.

    Netters---hiya! Love your new avatar!!!

    Shelly--snow, huh??? Love the stuff but a bit too early for me.

    Hiya Tweets--don't work too hard hon!

    Welcome Bethin!!!

    Dusk--love your prediction. I just might have to do that as I have nothing else planned for the day (yet). Very tempting!

    Good morning, everybody!

    It's been a day or two since I posted; every once in a while I have to get something done around the house that keeps me from this...my favorite addiction! My studies are getting more intense, but I'm still loving it! I got a 100 on the nursing exam yesterday (two of us did that), and I'm preparing for another exam in A&P (a doozy!) on the nerves for next Wednesday. And I got all of my clinical paperwork turned in yesterday, just in time for tomorrow's experience in med-surg. I'm hoping to have enough done by Friday where I can actually have some time off over the weekend. I think the partner is feeling a bit neglected, and I'd like some time alone with him where I don't have something to do with school staring me in the face. I doubt it's totally possible, but we'll see. We actually have a date for dinner and a movie for Friday night!

    Rain storms are coming through this afternoon, and already it's cloudy, gray, drab and dreary. I'd forgotten how bleak this part of the country can look, although I'm not complaining. Since many of the leaves are off the trees in these hills, I can see clear into the valley. I'm waiting for some snowfall like Steph had; is that not the BEST picture???

    You all be blessed. I'm sorry not to greet all of you by name, but you know that my thoughts and good wishes and prayers are with you all. Have a wonderful day!

    Peace.

    Don
