  1. Monday monday

    Getting ready to go to bed, even tho I had a nap.

    Am trying to figure out where Shangrao China is, relative to Hainan China.

    I am supposed to go to Shangrao for a 10 day missions trip, and we had our missions conference this week. One couple is working in Hainan which is an island. I don't have much info.

    A friend from church who is going loaned me her electronic translator, should be fun ...

    G'day Zoe!
    That sounds really exciting! Mission trips are so exciting and teach you SOOOO much. Everyone I know (myself included) comes back so humbled and amazed. Good for you!

    Finished working for the weekend and am fighting to try and sleep, since my schedule is backwards having worked a couple nights....

    DS turned 3 last Wed and we had a wonderful day. Grandma met us halfway between her house & ours for pizza and bday presents. (He'd already had cake etc. at preschool earlier that day.) And his big present was going to see Thomas last weekend....which was an absolute BLAST!

    Enjoying the quiet in our house right now. And playing around on AN and on a couple Elvis websites....

    Have a great day ZBB!

    Good morning to Zoe, Arwen, and all others! :kiss

    I am exhausted after working two 16 hour double shifts back to back on Saturday and Sunday. In addition, I worked 8 hour shifts on Thursday and Friday. Why am I working so much? The property tax bill arrived.

    Take care, and have a great day!

    Commuter -- do you have an escrow acct? If you do, that's who should be paying your property tax, hon! Either way, take care of yourself and REST!!

    Nope, I don't escrow. This is my third house, and I have never had the property tax and homeowner's insurance escrowed out of personal preference.

    Good morning/good night!

    I worked a full 12 in ICU today. 2 pts who worked my butt off. One guy kicked me out of his area because he thought CNA meant chang (last name). Very upset until I explained what those letters mean. Also got snooty and said "well, you're not from here are you? What are you some (deregatory for Chinese)?"

    Yeah, let's see, I have red air, fair complection and my eyes are round. What makes you think I'm from China? Infuriating, what if I really was of asian descent? This stupidity is getting ridiculous.

    Hmmm. I didn't even know you could do that!!! Get some sleep.
    You too, Muffie.

    Bethin, THAT story makes me really :angryfire. What a moron. Hopefully he didn't procreate any like him.
    Get some rest, all of y'all. And do something nice for yourselves!

    G'day everyone!
    to MONDAY!

    By the time y'all pop in here, I'll be out there, (kitchen), cooking tea.

    DH is sleeping off the effects of the sedative from the colonoscopy this morning. Poor fella, he looked SO sleepy when I picked him up!
    They found some polyps, excised them and have sent them to pathology. He'll see his GP on friday and find out the results then. Apart from that, no other "nasties" found, thankfully. Fully expect the polyps to be benign as well.
    His next thing to be investigated is the ??? trapped nerve in his back. He see's the surgeon on the 26th for that. GP suspects he'll require further surgery to release the nerve. We'll see what unfolds.

    Once we have Dh all sorted, then I'll be able to sort out what to do, when to go etc etc, to see my, ( 6 years older), sister who lives across the other side of the country and has been diagnosed with CA in her parathyroid. She has to have surgery also. She's just retired from over 40 years in the nursing profession. Never married, no children and lives alone. My brother and I are her only, immediate, family.

    I'm also wanting to travel across to Victoria to visit DS, who is doing a language course in preparation for his re-deployment :angryfirenext year.
    Until these other issues are dealt with and sorted, I'm not going anywhere!
    Pity we can't divide ourselves into multiple parts!

    We have yet another glorious spring day here today!
    Thank you Lord! Beautiful, just beautiful! :flowersfo

    Ok, must away, for now!
    Take care everyone and enjoy your week ahead!
    Cheers...............
