  1. Good morning! :kiss

    I'm getting ready to take a shower and go to bed, as I recently got off work after an average 16-hour shift. Then, upon awakening in the morning, I am off to school for the first time in a long time. I registered for 15 units of prerequisite classes and am crossing my fingers for the motivation and uplift to accomplish this feat.

    It's raining right now with a little thunder, so I hope my electricity isn't out in the morning. I'm going to need the alarm clock's dependable assistance in waking me up.

    I dearly hope all of you have a beautifully splendid Monday. Take care.

    Glad your shift went well, Commuter. You CAN do it, one day at a time!! (deep breath, now!) I hope the storm leaves your electricity supply alone. Sleep well!

    Everyone have a good day! --- D

    Commuter, I'm so glad your 16 hr shift was not too bad!!I was thinking about you today, working the 2 16hrs. I think that would be VERY hard--especially knowing in advance that that was what I was going to do.
    You are sure better then me!!:blushkiss
    I know you will do well in school--because you want it!!

    Dianah, Good Morning to you!! Hope your day goes well.:icon_hug:

    I'm at work & I'm expecting an admission right now. Tonite we had 2 MT's when I came in.
    So far not too bad.Altho, we do have some pt's with behavioral issues--hallucinating , combative, etc. We have a family here wanting to know why there relative is behaving like this--out of the blue & getting worse every nite--the resident came down t o talk with them & only made it worse by behaving like an ASS!!! Saying, if they want info--they need to be here between certain hrs!! The pt's dgt. nearly had a fit when she heard that, since they are here all the time!!! He seemed to have very few PEOPLE Skills & no Bedside manner!!

    Oh well!~! We;ll deal!! Nurses always do!!

    Anyway, did a LOT of house cleaning on Sunday--in fact I cleaned so much that when it came time to lay down & get some sleep, I was still all keyed up----anyway, I only got 4 hrs sleep!!
    After work today, I have major shopping , them manicure and pedicure scheduled!!

    Busy week!!

    Well, admit on the way up---got to run!!
    Commuter, thanks for starting the thread!!

    see you all later

    Good morning. Haven't went to bed yet. Fretting over filling out my living will. It's not the facing my death that's the problem, it's figuring out what I want and what my religion allows (Catholic).

    Had a horrible busy weekend at work. I hate leaving and feeling that I didn't give it my all even though I was running around that when I checked my pulse with resp. pulse ox it was 156! Supervisor even came up to me and told me to stop trying to be perfect. What, me a perfectionist???? Never.

    It's thundering out. I LOVE storms and will miss summer.

    Planning on making no bake cookies today. My best friend's husband who is stationed in Iraq says that they guys inhale those cookies. Thought I'd make at least a double batch and send them. My only hope is that things get better. He doesn't mind being in Iraq but like always, there's office politics, gossip, and some really mean people out to get you.

    Hope everyone has a great Monday!

    Good morning all! Don't have to work until tomorrow at 3 p.m. :wink2:
    I'm so sick of these political commercials we are hounded with on TV as there is a primary next month...but the commercials started a long time ago. I already know who I'm going to vote for and I'm sure most of my fellow Ocean State residents do as well. Same commercials, over and over again. Arrrggghhh

    so...what shall I do with myself today???

    Hello all, I have not been on here for a while due to school, work, and family. But I have made it through another 8 weeks, with 6 more 8 wks to go. Then I graduate, I miss you guys! Commuter, if I can go to school you can do it. Good luck to all today, and God bless.

    Good Morning All
    I start my 2nd job today as a clinical instructor, I will be working in the skills lab. I especially love the hours 12-6p I don't have to get up early. I am looking forward to this new direction in my career.

    Good morning everyone.

    Today is DD's first day of school. She's so excited she's an upperclassman now. A highschool junior. Time flies.

    Nothing else much going on here today.

    Take care everyone.

    Mornin' y'all!!!!

    Yes it has arrived......the first day of nursing school for fun2care......FINALLY!

    Wednesday is my first lecture, so I'll probably feel totally lost after that. I think in skills lab today, we're just going over basic hand washing procedures, and having a skills lab orientation. Then it's off to the main campus for another orientation.

    Y'all have a good one, and good luck to those starting school!
