    Good morning! :kiss

    I'm just arriving home from a road trip. Earlier this afternoon I ventured into Shreveport, Louisiana for some gambling and sightseeing. This was my first time venturing into the "deep South." I ended up losing $60 at the Horseshoe Casino, and picked up a cool alligator shot glass souvenir before leaving.

    Enjoy your day off, Zoe. And thanks for starting the thread.

    Take care, and have a pleasurable day!

    Hey commuter, sounds like fun! I love "road trips" - had you been there before?

    See you and I WILL!

    Supposed to take my bro out to lunch today, hope he doesn't cancel. (he has horrible agoraphobia and hates to leave his apt.).

    I hope that my right shoulder, low back, and hip -- feet too, come to think of it - and neck, and ... welll... I hope my whole body recuperates well tomorrow since I have to work again Sat! but off Sunday also so maybe I will get straightened out

    xo

    Morning ZBB, commuter, DD! It is only 0249 and I am ready to fall over! I guess it has something to do with the fact that I have been up since noon and could not fall back to sleep for a nap before work.....I think more and more that my body is rejecting nights...makes me sad- I would like to work evenings or something along that vein - Oh well. Good night tonight - just trying to get by. Still learning a lot about this facility and it's charting system.....
    Hope you are all having a good night too.

    Good Morning fellow maties,
    I am having trouble this morning waking up... Guzzles big cups of java! Yawwwwnnnnnnn

    Have a great day off Zoe and spoil yourself ok? Nurse Sabby orders LOL

    To all have a wonderful day. Jnette happy travels to you and know your Mutti will be just fine.

    To all that have sick family members or friends I send you all hugs.

    This lady has another busy day in the field of Hospice. Weird how one goes 'bad' and others tend to follow. Makes juggling an interesting option.

    Toodles for now.

    Good morning all!

    For those interested in my pillow report: night two of a decent night's sleep! I did my usually waking up, but fell right back to sleep again. How wonderful it is to sleep.

    Just realized I made my coffee a half hour ago and haven't poured it yet. My routine is I come downstairs, make my coffee, boot the computer, write my blog entry, pour my coffee and start work. Forgot the pour coffee part though. Oops. (I'm sure that bit of info just thrilled you all and made your day )

    Grey rainy day maybe but supposed to be a nice weekend. That's good for the Presidents' Cup golf tournament.

    Had a bit of a sad evening, missed my Oscar and the statue I have of him is a bit too realistic sometimes! I'm still trying to decide if we are going to get another dog/greyhound. Part of me wants to, another part of me is tired of this when our beloved pups leave us. I'm still working on getting the book into the public eye and promoting sales. Maybe I'll just focus on that rather than getting another dog for now.

    Have a great day everyong. Off to go find that missing cup of coffee.

    Yep.. it's Friday... and while I never thought I'd see this day come, I'm also having tremendous moments of melancholy. Yes, tomorrow we fly.

    Lots of piddlies to accomplish yet today. :spin: Got a good noc's sleep, however, so I'm good to go. Very windy and slightly cool yet here this morning.

    Time for another cuppa... be back later!
