Saturday, November 11th Good Morning

  1. OK, OK, you twisted my arm. Since Gracie won't start the thread (don't know why??!!??), I'll start it since I just got home from work and am still very much awake and need time to unwind a bit.

    Space...from yesterday's thread regarding bobbie pins....oh should see some piccys of me when my mother set my hair in pin curls. I had naturally curly hair then (wavy now) and the way my hair came out. Arrrggghhh.

    Don--we have Paniera (sp?) Breads all over the place here in RI. Have never had their sandwiches but had their bagels.

    I hope everyone has a nice day!!!

    Good morning all (thanks for starting the thread, Suzy! Hope you can wind down soon and get some good zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's!)! Here's to a day that is, even if in some small way, better than yesterday!

    Case, enjoy your few days off and I hope this new job is DA BOMB (in a good way, a GOOD bomb, of course!! )

    Renee, keeping my fingers crossed for you and your interview, as well as southernlpn and Halinja's interviews . . . if they're meant to be, they'll be.

    I posted a link towards the end of yesterday's thread, to piccys on photobucket of yesterday in Disneyland (the decorations). I'm not real proud of these pics, but they're what came out of the camera, so what can I say??? I just need to practice, practice, practice more!! (does that mean I need more vacations??? even four-day weekends would be nice, yes they would!!! )

    I'm actually ready to get to bed, so think I'll mosey off . . . see you tomorrow! --- D

    cooeee! g'day and hello to you! have a good saturday everyone.

    suzy.... i didn't start the thread because i was being lazy! :chuckle
    naw, not really. just think it's fairer and 'nicer' for others to have a chance to kick the day off too. sometimes! :chuckle and besides, i don't want to confuse everyone all the time! :spin: whaaa! what day is it????!!! silly aussie, she's in the future....again!!!

    it's now early evening on saturday here in oz. we've enjoyed delicious home made burgers for tea (dinner). yep, i'm a cracker burger maker even if i do say so myself!
    was graced this afternoon by a visit from former neighbours. they're delightful folk and we chatted and laughed and reminisced over afternoon tea. real afternoon tea, too! i served an assortment of cake, biscuits, "white christmas", etc etc.
    i'm going for an early morning beach walk tomorrow. my friend and i will drive the 40 minutes to the beach at 0730 and walk from one jetty to another and back again. then we'll languish over a coffee in one of the beachfront cafes. it's always a fabulous thing to do. she's also a nurse and we get along famously and i really love her company. can you think of a better way to start a sunday? nope, neither can i!
    ok, i'm outta here! we've hired a couple of movies for tonight's entertainment. i have no clue what they are. dh chose them and since he's having a rather rough time of it post-op (shoulder), i'm just going to graciously watch whatever he's selected while keeping him company!
    unlike some people who get to go to disneyland! no names, of course! i get to watch movies that i didn't select! :d
    enjoy your saturday!
    stay safe and well.

    Good morning. Just got a call saying I could stay home the first 8 hours of my shift! Woo Hoo! I was having coffee of course and am wide awake, but there's a nap coming on. Woo Hoo! Of course, some loser is apt to call in at the last minute and they'll call "we need you to come in after all." So I'll believe it only when 6:45 arrives and I'm still here.

    Suzy it was only 12:16 when you posted, why all the pressure?? LOL

    As predicted I was called back just now as the shift should be starting that I need to come to work. Now my whole day is messed up because I will be behind. I should have known to take a shower and get ready, but sillly me has been goofing off.

    Good morning, folks! I have oodles to do today. Heading out of town tomorrow for a Hospice conference. I'm really looking forward to it but I'll hate being away from my family for 6 days. I still have some charting to finish up from yesterday too. Whew! What a week!

    Tweety, ain't that just the way! Hope things go smoothly for you despite getting a late start.

    Yes it does. To add insult to injury, it's my turn to float and I'm floating. I knew it was too good to be true and was waiting for the phone to ring, as it always does, but at 6:45 which is when my shift starts, it's very irritating.:angryfire

    Enjoy your days off!!

    Morning, All:
    Oh, I definitely WILL, Dinah! Thanks for your good wishes.

    The only person who doesn't seem to be enthusiastic about me being off is my sister. She messed up her checking account and is now looking to me for help. 'Well, the least they could have done for you on your last day was cut a check for you", she told me, irritated. Never mind that I just got paid last week and had already given her 1/5th of my paycheck. Um, they only process payroll every two weeks, I told her. She started to say something else, but my BIL told her to hush. I'll be so glad when I can move out of here and into a place of my own. Sick of her drama. :angryfire

    Speaking of money, those debt collection lawyers are up to NO good again. I found another call from them on my caller ID when I got home from work last night. I have already filed a Motion to Strike with the Court against these thugs, who are trying to force a Summary Judgment against me on the grounds that I haven't "responded" to their demands. Rubbish. I am going to file another motion with the Court next week and inform them that I will give them a repayment schedule as soon as I find out when my first payday with my new job is. It's just a shame that I can't find an attorney who will help me fight these bandits. One wants blood money, while another simply does not want to fool with me. That's OK, though. I've had it with lawyers, anyway. Me and my sister's attorneys got 80% of the paltry settlement they were able to get out of the nursing home who killed our father back in 2002, which makes them just as greedy and crooked as the ones who are suing me now. The hell with them. As the saying goes: "God helps those who helps themselves". And I am going to do just that.

    See ya'll later.
