Saturday, September 16th

  1. Morning all. It's 12:40 a.m. so it's officially Saturday on the East coast.
    Just got home from work a short while ago and am trying to unwind a bit before trying to fall asleep.
    Work again today from 3-11.
    Hope you all have a wonderful day!

    Hi Suzy, hope you get a good rest/sleep, and that your shift tomorrow goes smoothly.

    I'm almost ready to head for bed myself . . . G'night to all, and Good Morning to those who read or post after! --- D

    Good morning Dianah and Suzy! Thanks so much for getting this thread off to its blissful start. :kiss

    I have a 16 hour weekend double shift to work much later this morning. I really should be in bed right now, but I cannot sleep due to insomnia. I took some Benadryl with the hopes that it will cause some drowsiness. If that doesn't work effectively, I will be forced to open one of the wine bottles and drink myself to sleep.

    Perfect way to end yesterday? (long story)

    Breath become increasingly warm.
    Joint creak.
    Body hurts.
    Nose won't stop dripping.

    Yep - classic "bad cold and high 103F fever" coming on :stone

    I think I'll drink a litre of water and head to bed *shudder* I don't look forward to the body pain and fever tomorrow is sure to herald...

    Y'all have a good day - I'll see if I can crawl outta bed tomorrow...

    Good Saturday everyone! I'm up, so that I can stay up late and sleep in in the morning. I start my 2 twelves. I can only hope that this weekend goes better then last weekend. We ended up catching up from the shift before us because they were short. Hopefully everyone will show up, and there will be a minimal amount of drama. Have a great weekend folks. I have been too tired and busy to check in on the weekends.

    Roy, so sorry you're sick! After the day you spent at the hospital, and being sleep-deprived, it's no wonder. I know you know what to do; get better soon!

    Awww.....I'm conjecturing that you are sick. I hope you feel better and recuperate very, very soon.

    Hey everybody-

    It's 03:30 and I'm hitting the witching hour where it's too late to caffeinate if I want to sleep when I get home, but I can feel my eyelids start to droop. What to do? What to do? Maybe my new admit will show up from the ED and that will keep me occupied until it's time to draw blood. Maybe I'll call downstairs to find out what's keeping her. I guess I should be careful what I wish for. It's my 6th wedding anniversary. We're heading out to dinner. We have a 9pm reservation at a seafood restaurant that overlooks the city. Should be nice. It will be our last one that we won't need to make sitter arrangements for many years to come. Kind of bittersweet.

    Have a Happy Saturday everyone!

    Good Morning. Guess I'm the first up today....oh I see Compassion1 is up too. I need coffee.

    Roy, hope you feel better soon.

    Happy Anniversary Nursebaby.

    It's a workday for me!

    Good morning Suzy, Dianah, Commuter, Roy and LPN,RNNow. I hope you've all gone to sleep now. Awww, (((Roy))), I hope you feel good soon. Ya gotta get your rest, my friend. Lots of people seem to be getting sick lately.
    I hope all that join us later this morning feel good and have a splendiferous day. I'll be working the 6th of my 7 day stretch. Monday, Monday, where for art thou Monday?
    Maybe I'll be able to get off dial-up today. Hope, I hope, I hope. Maybe I'll get to "see" ya all faster. :chuckle TTFN

    Whoops! Missed you NurseyBaby and Tweety. Nursey, I hope you'll sleep well once you can get there. For now, get out the toothpick eye openers. And Happy Anniversary!
    Tweety, do you have to work today, too? My eyes are so heavy. I think I'll get some Excedrin to jump start my caffene load up. That'll help my "old age" creaks and groans, too.
