    I said: You need to round out the characters - what is their chemical attraction or repulsion so to speak - what is their motive ... there must be a motive ...



    Ok, Ac-SHUN!

    Never mind.


    Here's a site with notes, check and see if it is above and beyond or helpful. The print is kinda small so you could cut/paste/increase the font. I wish I could help ya (I could hold the pencil and ponk you on the head with the eraser when you made a mistake!)

    NO idea if it is a good site or not but if it looks familiar to you it is probably ok!

    Good morning/evening...whatever, wherever!
    Just got home from work a little while ago. Just non-stop all evening long. of course I get a new admit at 10:50. Why oh why do they wait until change of shift? So I hate to stay a bit and get this fellow settled, do paperwork and draw blood for CPK's. So glad to be home in my nice warm jammies and trying to unwind before I even attempt to fall asleep. Get to repeat this again tomorrow.

    Going to have a look at the other threads.

    okay, here's your morning :chuckle ... when i got home, just before mn tonight, i noticed something out of the ordinary out the living room window...i have one of those plastic adirondack chairs and a little side table out there...turned on the patio light and looked out the door to investigate...hmmm, a big rubbermade storage container with sudsy water in it and a towel on the chair... , so i walk back in the house and turn off the light...see the sheets that were in the dryer on the couch...hmmm, bf's bro must've needed to do his laundry, since he's staying longer than anticipated...ok. must've gotten somethin' on some clothes that needed some soaking to get the stain out...that's what's outside...then, i take my phone outta my purse and take to 'puter room to plug in for recharge, decide to check my msgs...a txt msg from bf, from while i was at work... oh, my gosh, hand soap does not work well in the dishwasher! hand soap?! doesn't even work well for my hands... back in the kitchen, putting some trash in the trashcan under the sink...see the liquid, dishwashing soap (ya know, palmolive, for doing dishes in the sink)... :d :roll poor guy, must've filled the dishwasher soap bins with that!! must've foamed like crazy and overflowed all over the kitchen floor!!! hmmmm, the floor does look very clean! i'll have to complement him on his clean floor in the am (he's asleep).

    GOOD MORNING, PEEPS

    Hello to all!!Zoe, Suzy, Tina Hope all of the PM staff are tucked into the nice comfy beds now cathing some z's!!

    Suzy, I was complaining about that very thing earlier this week--only on nite shift. They send our admits uo about 5:30 or 0600/ I just don't get it. Then, instead of a nice really good admission, we have to do a rush job!!
    I hate that. Oh well---it won't change no matter how much we complain.

    VERY busy here tonite. I have a complicated chemo plus some of the patient's from hell. Oh well--again, complaint's will get me no where!!

    Just so you all know, I did not get to meet Angie as planned on Monday. She wasn't able to come up from Downstate. So, maybe the next time she has appt's up here.

    Got to run now.
    I hope each of you here & yet to come have a great day. Will try to read yesterday's thread now.

    Hello Peeps! Work day for me.
    Maryann I know what you mean, we always get ER admits at change of shift, also they call the admits after our staffing is done so sometimes it can leave us short. What the.... it isn't like the patient hasn't been done there for hours and they just decided oh I will admit. OOPS sorry for the rant.

    Morning everyone,

    Just home from work. Easy night compaired to the night before! I have to sleep fast tho as I have to go back to work for a manditory class at 2pm (giving me about 4 hours sleep) (would like for day shift to have to come in for a class at 2am and see how they like it)..... I know it's an old complaint but I do get tired of this.

    Off to bed,
    Theresa

    PS.. Jaxia.. you will do well today, study hard.
