  1. Good morning to everyone who happens to read or post subsequently. :kiss

    I have a plethora of final exams that will occupy my mind throughout the next couple of days, then my first semester of prerequisites will be complete.

    You are all in my prayers. Have a safe holiday season!

    Greetings Friends.

    Didn't get to play here with you this weekend as I was on call, and you don't even want to know how busy I was ! A sign-up Fri noc, 2 sign-ups plus a post hospital ROC and a regualr visit Sat. Spent three hours at my first sign up.. IV gravity vanc q 12 hours and had to teach the wife how to do this on top of everything else.

    I was exhausted to say the least. Yesterday wasn't bad except for coming down with a horrible stomach virus.. I could barely wait to get home. When I did, I crawled into bed and STAYED there... shooting pains all through my "innards", griping, gnawing, twisting, wrenching pain... fever... I was hurting pretty bad. Slept straight through until this morning from before noon yesterday. Feeling some better today, but of course I've not eaten anything. either. Kinda afraid to, kwim?

    OK.. better start getting ready and hit the shower.

    Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! I'm soooooooooo glad mine is over with !

    My final exam is TODAY! ...And to all taking finals this week: Prayers, luck, Kharma, dogma, the 4 Noble Truths followed by 8 paths, or the 5 Pillars to you for your success.....whatever you believe in!!! (What the heck is dogma anyway?)

    Can you tell we've learned about spirituality....now if I can just remember which religion does what. HAHAHAHA

    mornin friends!!!

    fun, good luck on the finals...never understood much about karma and dogma...except the tshirt that says "my karma ran over my dogma"

    busy weekend here... spent most of sat at a parrothead event doing a toys for tots thing... we sent a bus to a mall and had people donating toys while a group of us were at a warehouse filling requests. very rewarding may go back next weekend to help more.
    then to old navy for some shopping for our family.
    yesterday did some decorating then a party for our folks, then dinner to celebrate dd#1s engagement and dd#2 and her fiance back from thier cruise.

    nice weekend except that the cell phone from work rang constantly all weekend. dh has had it with me interrupting my family time with all of these calls , and i am not even paid to be on call!!:angryfire (pd for 35 hrs a week, work between 40 and 50) i really feel like i made a mistake taking this job, that i was lied to about the expectations, but feel like a quitter if i leave after only 8 months. however, i am totally depressed about the workload and feel like i will never ever come out from the black hole of it all!!!

    so dear friends i need advice..do i scrap it all and go look for something better? return to my kids and the ineffective boss? tell my fam to deal with it and just suck it up here?? look for greener pastures? i know there are those out there who would be grateful for any job, and that i should be .... but this is taking over my life!!!!
    sorry to take over the gm thread but i am just so overwhelmed. thanks for any and all advice. even the "tough love" kind is appreciated. mary

    Good Morning all
    Jnette I hope you are feeling better soon.
    Commuter and Fun good luck on your test, you both have been studying hard so I am sure you will do great.
    DD if it is that much of a strain on your family, and they have you taking call on w/e and not getting paid. I don't think that I would put up with it either.
    Maybe look for another job before quitting this one, so you wont' be without a job/income. well that is my 2 cents.

    Good morning siri and Dinah.
    I am off today, might do christmas shopping.

    So, you burned your wittle bwain? hahahhaha

    Glad you have some time off this week. Take care.

    Moi??? Oh, just a little this and that. Maybe a little chillin' and a little millin'. I dunno. Sun's not up yet and I can't decide whether to waste the day or be productive. Right now? Leaning towards the former. hahahahahahahahahahhaaha
