Hi all, it is nice to be back

  1. Hi all, it is nice to be back. I have had a lot going on and just needed to stay away from nursing issues for awhile with the exception of every once in a while checking out and posting on AOL's nursing board. It is quite a bit different there. Not that many relevant topics for the most part and the treads are hard to follow because of a few people who like to have personal discussions not related to the topic which go on for days.

    I just went back to work after being off since the beginning of June. I passed the real estate exam since I have been gone. I plan on starting in the spring after the snow has melted. Anyone looking to sell or buy a house in Michigan?

    I missed you all as well.

    Hey Tracy, I got an e-mail sometime back from Susy. She said you were asking about me. Did you not get the message that I was OK? If not we will have to bend her over and give her what she deserves, but then again she would probably enjoy it. I spoke to her on the phone a few times, so believe me she would enjoy it. LOL.

    Kennedy and Kewl, it was like I had not left after reading some of your posts. I just wonder how long it will be before Bri steps in and tells us all to mellow out. I know he will have a smile on his face though.

    Canoehead, good to see you too. I like the who cares? Go have a drink comment. I like to see that side of you. Life is too short.

    Hoolahan, Jenny, NrsKaren, it is good to hear from you as well. It could not have been that boring around here. I am sure that I will spice things up a little.

    Remember guys opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one and sometimes or another they all stink, even mine. As you know I like to generalize because it take too much time and thought process to dance around. I have walked away a lot more informed after the debates we have shared. I have crossed the line a few times. I am sure I will again. But, I like the secondary feedback after the topic has had time to sink in and the emotions which it brought about have cleared. In the process of all of this, it is great what you can learn about yourself after you have dealt with the anger or pain at times. Many of my topics and replies are from a male perspective without the attempt to change them into a female style of conversation, as you know all too well. There is no disrespect intended with this. So let the fun begin.

    It is good to be back.

    Not looking to buy or sell (I HATE moving!) but congratulations on getting that real estate license and good luck to you.

    And where is Ted Nugent's Place? Hey, Mohammed Ali has been trying to sell his place without much success. Maybe he'll be in the market for a new realtor.

    Congrats on your real estate license.

    I did say something nice about you while you were gone.

    Hey Tracy-
    I would have contacted you - but I truthfully didn't know if Wild was ok or not - as his responses to me were short, terse and guarded. Typical.

    Anyway - funny thing is Kewl has emailed me a bit ago asking why I haven't really posted in a while. My reply was because there just wasn't anything that was provoking me to write. Well, my prayers must've been answered as now Wild is back.

    Hey wild,

    Come on buddy, I wanna see some heads roll!

    I don't usually get involved with the debates that you and others seem to provoke, but I sure missed the rolling heads when you weren't around! Glad to see you're back...Now let's see those heads roll...

    Hey Wildtime, I missed you to! You know, sometimes I think you might be just a year or 2 ahead of the rest of us in your thinking: I think that if you proposed the sit out now, your idea would catch on like wildfire!
    A realtor, huh? Good luck in your new career. Just don't give up on nursing-- or at least your Allnurses.com buddies again!
    Sooooo, what do you want to debate about??????

    I really do not want to give up being a nurse in the ER. I do not want to go anywhere else and practice in this profession either. I enjoy what I do when thing are great, but that has been awhile and it is just getting worse.

    Selling houses seemed like a good opportunity. You can pick your own hours, no holidays, make a great living, little to no stress, No missed lunches, actually use the bathroom when the urge hits, and work any place in the U.S.

    I am not getting too old for this profession, but I think I have gotten to wise. There are easier ways to make a living and retire with a much better situation to look forward to.

    Me, secretary of labor, you have got to be kidding. How about secretary of state that way I could paid to enjoy myself. Acutally I have control issues, so I would want to be Prez.

    <Elect Wildtime for president and life will never be the same again!>

    But I want to pick my own white house aides.

    Wildtime, you will notice when you look back on that thread that I am in charge of the money, and of keeping track of the nominations. So you'll have to dend in a donation to the "campaign" to keep me pleasantly soused, and in a good mood.

    As far as nursing goes, remember I invited you up to Maine to do some ER work. Well our hospital just got "the best results I've ever seen" on an employee opinion survey, conducted by a national company. I'm quoting an employee of the survey company on that one, so you could come up and recharge for a few weeks. See how nursing really should be done.

    The ER up here is actually the base and clearing house for all vicious rumors and gossip, and lots of stirring debate. I think you would be right at home.

    A few quick questions.

    What month does the snow usually melt away?
    What do you like to drink?
    Just how much is it really going to cost me?

    I have a bottle of Crown Royal and 1800 tequilia we can share?

    April we usually have a good melt, but the excitement of doing 360's at a crowded intersection is not to be missed so come before then.

    I'm not a big drinker, but I can tell you the Maine drink of choice is coffee brandy. Learned this from working the ER- it is actually pretty good.

    Rents $350-400/month, Gas $1.20/gallon here.

    If you want to be nominated to the BB government remember you need to hob-nob with the riff raff ...(that's me). Do you do days or nights? If nights I will be your second pair of hands in the ER as sup. I'll be nice, promise.
