Good Wednesday Morning 02/09/05

  1. Good morning to all of you that are awake....
    What is on the breakfast menu today?

    Still trying to decide whether to leave Thursday or Friday am.........want to make it a fast trip to get back here, but who knows. Don't have to be back to work until Tuesday. It will be nice to be able to get more of my things from storage over there. Still really enjoying all of the "green" here. Looks like things just go on for miles and miles and miles.

    Tomorrow is the fourth in a series of four 12s, then five off........That is the best part. Plan on doing some local traveling to either Carmel or Monterrey next weekend, provided that the westher is good......

    Make it a great day....... :Melody:

    If you go to Monterey be sure to go to the Aquirum,it is so worth seeing.

    Stayed home sick today.Got this stupid cold thats been going around.Did my taxes Sunday,getting back the most we ever had.Looks like they have an extra Child credit this year,so for all of you talking about Babies on yesterdays thread,maybe thats not such a bad Idea Also Toll House Cookies are good,but don't soak up the milk like a chips ahoy Got to lie back down,feel my fever coming back,so hope everyone has a Great Day:hatparty:

    Poor Donny! Rest, drink those fluids!!

    You know, Suzanne, I've never been to Carmel or Monterey! And we used to live in Mt. View and Palo Alto, when I was a kid. I remember camping at Big Sur, and driving on the coast highway (probably to get to the campsite), going to Santa Cruz . . . but never remember anything about the other two. I hear it's tremendously beautiful and, yes, the Aquarium is great! Hmmmm, somewhere they have a website with four live zoo-cams, three each trained on the penguins, otters, sharks and one outside cam -- the penguins are so cute! And that's all I know about the Monterey Bay Aquarium! Hope you have a safe drive and a wonderful visit to that area.

    I better get ready for bed. 'Nite to all, --- or, should I say GOOD MORNING!!! I like toast for breakfast, so I'll make some wheat toast with SmartStart on it, and your choice of Apricot-Pineapple preserves, blackberry or strawberry jam, or, if you prefer, molasses (my fave!)! I'll take tea and some GOOOOOOOOOOD-tasting water!

    Later, gators!! --- Diana

    Good morning! See most of the Californians are still up. It's 2:30AM here. I just finished a major project for school and am very much relieved to get it out of the way. It's taken over my day, but now I'm thinking of making a Walmart run and splurging on a treat. As I was typing that I remembered I was for some fasting labs, oh, well I can start the fast after my treat, as there's no time I have to show up at the lab, I just have to show up!

    The weather is has been beautiful here, nice sunny cool to warm days in the 70s, nices are cool and pleasant.

    Take care everyone.

    Get well soon Donny.

    Suzzane enjoy your days off and have a safe trip.

    Hi Mary Ann, are you having a better day?

    good morning everybody

    now, suzanne, that was a good try, but when ya start the thread it is incumbent upon you to then cook and serve breakfast. and we're a pretty spoiled bunch. but we'll let you get away with it this time.

    donny, sorry to hear about the cold. yeah, seems like everybody at work has the same thing. sometimes i feel like howard hughes cause i just want to carry around disinfectant wipes!
    glad to hear you will be getting money back from the irs. just know i'm going to owe.

    diana, thanks for the toast and jam. with a nice steaming hot cup of tea that will be lovely.

    tweety, still seems weird to hear you talking about going to the doctor, but those dang physicals become necessary when you go to school. enjoy the feast before fasting - that's my motto!!
    btw, really like you new sig. and the avi is sooooooo adorable. just like you.

    leslie, alright - to continue from yesterday:
    your quote - weetz- you really want to come? i don't believe you. but if you're serious, you'll be added to the list...so far me, jnette, marla, steph, (?) angie and (?) you....

    now..........just what makes you think i don't want to go? are you guys planning a hike along the massachusetts oceanside in february? :uhoh21:

    and, jnette, thank you, sweetie for inviting me. how dare leslie have doubts! hmpf is all i have to say about that!

    o.k. guys - gotta tell ya the news. the recruiter called me tuesday morning to say the saudi arabian embassy has finally given my the visa. apparently he was able to convince them i'm not a serial killer or such. so, gonna give my notice today, then work till the end of the month, and should be leaving ~march 15th. woo! hoo! its for real now.......................
    trepidation setting in. omg! am i making a wise decision? seeing as how i'd like to stay there till i retire, what if i don't like it?..........do i really want to work in a hospital again? yikes!!!
    deep breath.......... i'll be fine, just a bit nervous is all.

    gonna go have a beer. that's always a good idea, right? g'night all -

    weetzie, did you get your beer????????:biere:
    aww.......mary ann, i'm already starting to miss all my friends here. but not to fear, i'll still help you spend money - just long distance spending! 18 and 22k gold, very exotic handcrafts, handmade carpets - oh! the list is endless.
    and yes, my sweet, i'm drinking my beer as i type. thanks for asking.


    mary, thanks for the good wishes. do believe i'll pass on the coastline for now. i freeze when it goes below 70, but it would be a great place to walk the doggies. how come its o.k. in the winter but not the summer?

    Hi Mary Ann, another grumpy day? Sorry to hear that. I learned how to access a port by watching the nurse who came down from another floor to do it, so hopefully one of those nurses will learn from you. There's nothing too it, but it's intimatating if you haven't done it I guess.

    Congrats Weetzie. Good luck to you.

    Hello - here at work where there are actually more than two patients.

    None in the ER so far though and I'm the ER nurse and house supervisor today.

    Let's hope it is all clinic type patients that come to the ER today. Lots of influenza and nausea and vomiting going around up here.

    Weezie - I need a large rug for my living room, pretty but cheap. I'll bet the shipping would be awful though. Pretty cool what you are going to be doing - although scary too. You can do it though.

    Tweety - it was 38 when I came to work. But no clouds so hopefully it will be a sunny day.

    We are starting on our taxes . . . I hate that. Too much paperwork.

    steph
