I missed all of you

  1. I finally have a few minutes to myself, and decided to visit and see what everyone has been up to. I didn't realize how long it has been since I was here, but my Halloween avatar is still up, so I guess it has been a long time. I have missed you guys, but have been so busy with everything that has been going on at work and at home, that I haven't really had time to come here. The dust is settling at work. Our unit manager has left, and they were pressuring me to take her job, but they finally realized I was not interested. As a matter of fact, I was going to go with her to the new hospital, but decided I didn't want to start all over at the bottom again.

    I don't think things will ever get settled at home. Hubby got his yearly seasonal job at a local department store, but he is still very frustrated about not finding a permanent job. He is thinking of buying an 18 wheeler, and driving truck, but that would mean he would be gone several days at a time, and I really don't want him to do that, but it looks like we may not have a choice.

    Since the beginning of November, I was hospitalized for pneumonia, my grandaughter was an inpatient with a peritonsillar abcess, my sister had major facial surgery, and my daughter was in for several days after an MVA.

    My daughter also split up with her husband because he was being unfaithful, and my DIL who hasn't even made an attempt to see the kids, is now suing for custody.

    So you can see, I have not had much time for my Allnurses freinds, but I have thought about you guys many times. And thanks to everyone who sent me PMs and good wishes. Love to all of you.
