  1. Good morning everyone!!
    I'm headed to bed soon, but wanted to wish all a good evening, good morning, good night, whatever!!

    Here, for your listening and viewing (if you're me, anyway) pleasure, is a song that will put a smile on your face, courtesy of Mr. Presley

    Good night arwen.

    I'll pass on Elvis. Definitely not a fan, although I do love his lovey dovey song he sings - name escapes me. It's been redone by other artists.

    From yesterday:

    Bethin, it's great -- tart and wonderful - tell me what you think!!!!
    diary, I couldn't drink it. I didn't realize you needed a corkscrew! I thought I had one because I do drink wine and champagne but I can't find it. And after running around all day across Indy I don't have the energy to go to the store. Since you're familiar with Indy this is how Monday started:

    Woke up. Needed to go to Casleton and return something to sephora. That sephora wouldn't take the return since that isn't the store I bought it at. Then I went to Keystone which always confuses me and I avoid at all costs. Got lost. Turned around and ended up in right spot. Returned makeup. Went to br. Started period. Ooops, no tampons. Run to Walgreens on Keystone. Run back to the Keystone and sephora to purchase more makeup and a purse. Rush hour when I leave. I head west on 465 to hit 65 south. Bad accident. 65 south CLOSED. No one can drive on it. Had to bypass to 865 which I didn't know existed. Ended up in Zionsville, (I think). Turned around so I could go east on 465. Hit empty on gas. Red light goes off. Need gas NOW. Make a stop. Debit card wouldn't work. Freaking out thinking how am I going to get home? Go inside to pay, turns out it's the machine at the pump and not my card. Head home on the oh so lovely 70. Been on that recently? You need a valium, dilaudid, and a case of beer to hit that road during rush hour. Major construction but yet people still speed. Cop on motorcycle pulled over, no joke, 4 cars at once! Really, do they not see the signs, max fine $1000 and 8 years in prison? Make it home. Realize I need quarters for laundry. Car wash down the street. Go to it, out of change.

    Get home, realize I can't do laundry because I lost my downy ball. Go to CVS and Walgreens, they don't carry it. So I head to walmart at Beech Grove. Accident at 465 and 65 south. So basically I went around 465 about 5 times.

    I just now put on my pj's and crawled into bed. And I really need that damn beer now!

    good morning, little peeps!!
    well, another nite at work; so far, not as bad as last week. of course, we have 3 empty beds, but we can really get only 1 admit as 2 beds are saved. we have both a chemo pt & radiation pt. coming in the am & have to have beds for them.
    my pt's are kind of quiet right now.
    do have to draw some blood in a few minutes, tho.

    i had such a lazy weekend off---it felt so good; dh also had a rare lazy weekend.
    dh is planning to golf again this am, so i'll have the house to myself, with only the dog. however, there is a possibility of rain, so he might be home after all. we have tons of tapes to watch, so if he's home, that's what we'll do.

    i need some suggestions from you all on a simple, easy halloween costume. we are playing poker on sat. the 27th & costumes are optional. i don't want anything too elaborate, maybe just something i can do with face makeup & hair. hope a few of you can help me out---my immagination took a vacation!! lol!!

    you all have a wonderful tuesday!!

    arwen, thanks for starting the thread!!

    beth, i'm sorry to say that you had me laughing hysterically at your description of your day!!! i know the roads you are talking about & it just really struck my funny bone!!
    altho, i know for you it was anything but funny!!! i would have been in tears had i been you!! hope tuesday will be better for you!!

    Greetings everyone!
    My tuesday was spent attacking bathroom cleaning, then off to aquarobics, then a Dr's appt. Oh, and arguing with the broadband server! Since upgrading to broadband I've had hundreds of dropouts, plus really s-l-o-w kbps! They're now sending a new modem to try! *sigh* They also tried to tell me that because we're 6 kilometres from the telephone exchange, that's considered TOO FAR for delivery of broadband service???!!!!! WHAAA????!!!! HELL-LO??!!! I've been having the service for a couple of months (MORE!) now! Soooo, it must NOT be too far! AND.... all this was looked into PRIOR to the upgrade!!! By both the ISP AND the telephone company, AND the electrician who installed the extra phone jack, etc etc etc!!! *sigh*
    Mebbee I should just revert to snailmail and forget about being part of the modern world!!! *Sheesh!*

    Soooo, that's my tuesday! lol

    Enjoy your tuesday!

    Morning!

    Bethin, sounds like you had a really bad day. I didn't know traffic was so bad around Indy; I've driven through there a few times on the way to Spring Mill and haven't had any problems, although it's usually been on a weekend.

    Grace, did you expect anything else from computers? My own very new computer has a display driver that cuts out periodically, no cure in sight yet...

    My Tuesday shouldn't be bad: We're not having assessment lab today so I'll have the entire afternoon free to study (probably just stay at the university rather than go home). Getting a little more seasonal here, after first being too warm and then too cold. Just wish it would stop raining.

    Gotta get going soon... have a patient who lets me come early, so I can catch her on my way in to town. Nice.

    Hope everyone has a good day at work or play ! See you all later this afternoon!

    Good Morning everyone,

    Beth your post had me spitting my coffee out. It sounds horrendous but RE READ your post and I am sure you will giggle too. You must have put many miles on your car yesterday. Heck I wanted that beer for you this morning BUT not a good thing as I get ready for work!!

    Have a great and happy day to you all.

    Good Morning/Good Night
    yesterday took ds to get his wrist x-rayed not fx but apparently sprained he is having a lot of pain (which he doesn't handle well)
    He is 15. insists on a cast, can't for the life of me convince him that they will not put a cast on with out a break. :deadhorseHe thinks because I am a nurse that I can go buy the cast? I was about to start drinking.
    Finally I was able to convince him no cast, and the tx was elevate, ice, rest and ibuprofen. ahhh peace
    Hope everyone has a good day.

    Hi Bethin,

    Where in the world is 865?? I drove in Indy for 12 yrs taking my dd to Riley. I know there wasn't any 865 then!! My parents live in Stilesville, which is just up the road fron Plainfield. Where do you live? I live in Vincennes.

    Hi everyone else,

    Good morning!!

    I am down to working QO w/e roughly $200 a week cause I get paid weekly. The agency has a couple of pts for me as soon as they get more info. My boss told me that when they come on board they are mine.

    I am going to enjoy my MUCH needed time off. I am going to my parents house this Thursday and spend time with them until Sunday. I am SOOOOO looking forward to this break!

    Take care and have a GREAT!! day!
