    tweety sorry you had to go back in. i would have loved to gone back to bed.

    well unable to sleep so i came to visit. today is our 15th wedding anniversary. :1luvu: so hard to believe. dh took today, fri. and mon. off. we are going to try and do something this weekend. to hard to go out during the week.

    well turned in my report of humanities, had a quiz in sign language, spent an hour in lab. will do some practing today. need to catch up on some humanities reading. maybe not today but tomorrow b/c dh will be gone with ds on a field trip. i have class from 9-12 b/c i have lab work. then i will have time to study.

    sorry guys to tired ( but can't sleep) to fix breakfast you will have to be on your own today. i can do the coffee, tea, pop, milk, orange juice.

    well going to go looking around some more.

    have a great day, afternoon or night whichever it may be where you are at.

    Sorry you can't sleep Angie. I know that feeling well.

    I knew better than to go back to bed when I got the call. I just continued to make my coffee and go about my morning routine, because I knew it was too early to be canceled. I do know that these patients just didn't suddenly appear in the ER and that it was piss poor planning. But I'd rather not leave the floor tight staffed if one admission makes the productivity numbers work out. The acuity on our unit if very high right now.

    Goodmorning Everyone.

    Woke up to a raining morning. I was outside last night swinging in the lawn chairs with the toddler I babysit, and it started to get muggy. I figured it was going to rain and sure enougn it did. I like the rain but can't deal with the lightning and thunder :imbar

    Anyhow, not much planned today for me other than getting some work, laundry and school today. Will check in later.

    Until then...............enjoy it and have a great one!

    Good morning to everyone!

    All the kids were up before 7am this morning....I like to get up a little bit before the kids do just so I have a little time to get myself together, but they beat me to it this morning. So, I was a little kerflukeled this morning. But my head has since cleared, and breakfast is done (for the kids anyway) and I'm ready to face the rainy day!


    It started pouring during my son's football practice yesterday evening...the kids had a blast playing in the rain. He's still trying to get a handle on the game, and has said he doesn't want to sign up next year, but my husband insists that he does it for a couple of seasons at least until he can decide whether he really likes it or not. I happen to think that my DH is trying to make sure that my son is getting everything that he didn't get when he was growing up. I just don't think you can or should force it.....he's only 5...he's got plenty of years ahead of him to decide what he likes....but I'm just the mom who has to take him to practice....why should I have a say...
    Honestly, I think my son does enjoy it, he's just nervous around the kids who seem to have football in their blood. He'll get there, I just don't want him pushed to the point where he hates it.

    Don't have time to address everyone now, will check back in!

    good morning everyone!

    tweety: sorry for the pscych-out. lol ...maybe next time.

    congrats on your anniversary & humanities paper, akcarmean!

    madwife2002: smilies are not making us smile very much here lately. lol

    jessica, be carefull out there!

    jkaee: i woke my daughter up, went downstairs to make coffee, then went back to sleep for another 30 minutes. lol

    as for myself, i'm just about through wasting my study time, so i'm off to go to the tutoring room for chemistry. it is mandatory to get full credit on the extra credit homework, but i really need the extra help anyway.

    stoichiometry is evil! lol

    y'all have a great one!

    Hi all! One more, night, and I am off for two. :bowingpur I survived switching the dang MAR's this am.....only took 4 hours. Included a bolus, potty breaks, Pharmacy drop off, and the occasional Tylenol or two. Oh, did I mention my problem patient? Got busted smoking on 3-11, and takes it out on me, cuz I enforce the rules.

    Tweety: So sorry you got ripped on time off.

    AKCarmean: Happy anniversary!

    NurseMary: Best wishes to hubby and you. Where in Chicago are you from?

    Anyhow.....whoever makes the java in the morning: make mine strong, and may I have some milk with that? Pleeeeease? Thanks!
