    [font=fixedsys]good morning super rn, you are up late working!
    [font=fixedsys]its bad enough when we have to be up while working.
    [font=fixedsys]today is the day before my daughter catriona arrives here, so i am becoming very on edge, she was here in january but it is hard not to have seen her for nearly a year. so i cant wait for these 2 shifts to be over. hope that you all have a good day and a good night for those who are working

    super rn....i hated research. the teacher we had was not supposed to be the teacher,and she said so....and not a single student really liked her. i got a "b", barely!

    it is now officially 12/7....i will be thinking of my uncle today; he was at pearl harbor the day it got bombed. 3 18 year old boys joined, and 2 men came back.

    work was a royal pain in the patookus. one send out at shift change, while an admit came in (the "fdgb" lady). another admit at 7:30. the hospital nurse said the doctor couldn't wait till this am..... oh, well. i will finish up stuff later on on 3-11.

    till later....

    I should be doing research for my paper but I can't concentrate. I'm going today for my mammogram and US after a previous CAT scan found masses in my liver and breast.

    If everything goes well after the tests I thought I'd finish up my Christmas shopping. I only have my dad left but he is by far the hardest person to buy for. Mom told me just to get him golf balls. I swear, that man will die on the golf course. He'll get up at 4:30am on his days off to go golfing. What is it with men? You wouldn't catch me getting up that early to go shopping. Oh well, whatever rocks your boat.

    It's so cold and dreary in Indiana right now. Lately, whenever I get in my car I come so close to just make that turn and head south. I think I'll fake bake today and hopefully that will make me less depressed.

    Have a great day!

    Good morning everyone!

    I'm off to my last day of work. It's going to be weird, that's for sure.

    I saw an ad in the paper looking for RNs for a laser clinic down the street for me. I'm thinking about seeing if they have part-time work so I can work school hours. Has to be less stressful than a very busy ER. But I'm still thinking about it. I did want to wait until January to really start looking for something part-time.

    Beyond the usual Christmas spending, we're just spreading money all over the place. My washer and dyer died this weekend and we bought a new one. One of those front loading sets. It will be here Monday.

    Then yesterday my 7 year old mini van stalled and refused to start again. The mechanic hasn't seen it yet, but DH said we should start looking at something new. We decided to trade in my Mustang GT and should be able to pick up our new Highlander today or tomorrow.

    I hope nothing else breaks. I'm all but unemployed. DH can manage all this well enough though.

    Everyone have a great day.

    Morning everyone

    I am off to do laudry. Yep, at 6 am or else it gets too crowded in there. It is windy and chilly outside.

    Have a wonderful day everyone.

    Hi guys - sorry I was away for so long - was rushed into hospital again almost 2 weeks ago. Have now had surgeries (plural) and am home recuperating. It seems like a dire way to get Christmas off - I have missed you all so much. Sorry to hear your news Bethin - hope all goes better than you expect. To all that have been before and come after, I hope you have a great day.

    Hello from work.

    Had a great day with my son yesterday - ended up on the Sundial Bridge as the sun went down. The Sacramento River was high and rushing by and we could see and hear a flock of geese and there were ducks below us.

    Nature has a way of restoring peace.

    Hope you all have a good day -
