  1. Good morning and happy Monday! :kiss

    I am still recovering after having worked a 16-hour double shift on Superbowl Sunday. My next plans include going to sleep, studying, attending classes at my local CC, and catching up on some much needed rest.

    I hope you all have a wonderful, pleasurable day. :smilecoffeecup:

    Good Evening from the West Coast - it is 11:26 p.m.

    You night shift workers have my respect - it has been luckily busy in the ER so I'm wide awake.

    Drinking Diet Coke with Lime and eating "Snyder's Pumpernickel and Onion Sticks" . . . they are very very good.

    I go home at 0315 . . .get to sleep as long as my ds will let me . . . .maybe until 7:30 a.m.

    Happy Monday!

    Drinking Diet Coke with Lime
    I used to love to drink Diet Coke with Lime back when I was a night shift worker at a toilet paper factory in 2002 and 2003. The mere thought of a can of Diet Coke with Lime causes those pleasurable memories from 5 years ago to resurface.

    Do I detect sarcasm . . . ?

    The nurses have all this food spread out at the nurse's station . . . .. Man, I'd weigh 100 more pounds if I worked night shift - they bring in such good food. Some nights they even bbq.

    Sitting here in my office by the heater . . . .not sure that is a good idea . . .might make me sleepy.

    greetings everyone i've been mia for a week or so. hope everyone is well. i'm not up on the news, so have no idea what's been happening with everyone.
    i've been having "fun" with a back problem. my reward and legacy from my nursing career! saw a remedial massage therapist today. have another appt booked for next week. hoping for some relief and improvement after a few more sessions.
    we've been having hot weather here lately! temp was 41 deg (celsius) yesterday. i saw on tonights news that chicago is snowed in! we could do with some of that here! it's now blowing a high wind outside, heat and high wind = fire danger! fingers crossed, no fires please!
    enjoy your monday! mine's near it's end. :chuckle

    Happy Monday! I'm about to head to bed. Turning thirty takes a lot out of a girl. Actually, I think it's being uncomfortably pregnant and remaining in night mode. I fell asleep @ 03:00 and was awoken by dh's alarm @ 04:15, not to mention reflux. I'm heading to Target today when I wake up to scout potential b-day presents from dh. If I don't find anything, I'll just have him get me a gift card for Itunes. At least we'll get the savings on gas for purchasing them @ the local grocery chain. Also, if I get up on time and she's available, I may go see my hairdresser for new highlights. The roots are almost two inches and I really don't want to deal with them when ds gets here.

    Hope everyone has a good Monday! (That's Tuesday to you Grace! )

    boy what a game last night!! i'll try (a little) not to rub it in for all you bears fans. it was a good game and i'm so happy for tony, peyton, and the rest of the team. at least tony has the right attitude. he's a great guy.
