    Happy Friday Steph!

    I'm f-f-f-f-f-freezing. One of the other RNs insists on cranking the AC. I forgot he was working tonight and didn't wear a shirt under my scrub top. The cardigan alone is just not cutting it. I'm trying to stay awake. I slept until 12:15 yesterday after work and could not fall back asleep. I should sleep for awhile when dh is @ work. He won't be done until 3pm.

    Not too much else in this neck of the woods. I'm due for an increment of my "loan forgiveness" from work next week. It's taking every ounce of resistance not to blow it on a vacation somewhere warm and call off work for a week. I'll be good and stash it in savings so I can take off the full twelve weeks when the baby gets here and not be totally broke.

    Good Morning to all to come . . . . .

    Well, At work again; BUSY!! BUSY!! BUSY!!! I'm not Charge tonite, so got 1st Admit---of course, that's the LAST Bed!!! YES!!
    Sometimes I'm not sure what goes on here in the OTHER Hours of the day!!!
    2 of my pt's were perfectly comfortable last nite with the pain meds they had ordered!! I didn't hear one word of complaint from them--except if it was time for there meds--then they expressed good pain control. Tonite I come back & t hey are BOTH on all different pain meds & BOTH Crying from lack of pain relief!!:angryfire
    Did no one ever hear the old saying----:"If it ain't broke, don't fix it"?????
    I guess not.:angryfire

    So, I've had my hands full tonite!! Oh well, Deal with it---
    I've done what I can tonite, maybe it can be fixed in the AM!! We'll see,

    NOthing special planned for Friday---I do have to come back to work Fri nite, but I'll be off the weekend!! We have another Poker Party this Sat----I'd better get my WINNING shoes out!! Maybe I can be the BIG winner again this month!!

    Steph; Thanks for starting the Thread!! Sleep Well!!

    NurseyBaby: Hope you're keeping warm!! Do you work again tonite?

    Well, I'd better run

    See you all later

    Oh, Roy---I continue to enjoy the Song of the Day!!

    HI all,

    Mayhem in our household already! Oldest winding up middle while he's trying to eat breakfast. YOungest has friend here already, middle's friend due to arrive in the next hour & I have several loads of washing to do!

    Of course, if I had my nice, huge USA washing machine I could get it all done in one go!!! You guys have no idea how tiny our stupid washing machines are & that's because most of us - especially if we're nurses - have tiny little houses so anything bigger wouldn't even fit even if we could get one!!

    Hope everyone has a good day xxxxx

    Good morning everyone! Woke up earlier, tried to go back to sleep but no luck. Oh well. I took a nice long nap yesterday so I guess I don't need any more sleep....right now anyway.

    Another day off for me. Have to go out and get some more cat food and then on to Country Curtains to pick up some curtains I ordered that weren't in stock.

    Back again! I cooked pork stir fry for tea. It was delicious!
    Ok, so my friday was spent cruising the aisles of the supermarket! Once I had things organised here and DH was comfortable, I headed on up to the village where I shop. Do you think I could get a car park?! It was crazy there today! Eventually found one and proceeded to do the banking and shopping. I mostly do internet banking, so waiting in a queue at the bank is unusual for me. There was two blokes behind me and all they could do was whine about how long the queue was! How slow the tellers were! What IS it with people?! Why not just enjoy taking TIME for a change? Use the wait to think or reflect. Sheesh! Everyone's in such a hurry. No wonder there's SO much stress about. I conquered the shopping expedition in record time, then treated myself to a delicious cappuccino to go, to enjoy during the drive home.
    It's been a busy few days since DH's return from hospital. I'm the chief cook and bottle washer! He's an undemanding patient. No real trouble. Just very frustrated with his situation and the pain and discomfort is "getting" to him. I understand how he feels. None of us ever likes being disabled for any reason. I LOATHE being dependant on anyone! The pain meds do seem to provide relief for about 3 hours. Then he has to wait it out until the 4th hour before he can have more.
    DD is coming for a visit tomorrow. She'll help me walk the two dogs and bath them. Poor pooch's, they've been a tad 'neglected' this week. Oh well, I can't quite do everything!
    DS is on standby. The military Mum's here will know how 'thrilled' that makes me feel! :stone
    Ok, time for me to say goodnight!
    Take care all and stay safe.
    Until next time............
