Tuesday 13 November...

  1. Good afternoon ppl. Actually not really, I'm exhausted. Hubby woke me up, and I've had hardly any sleep from night duty, and I've got to work tonight. Going to be pretty hard to get back to sleep, as its hot as, and there is no pending storm today...oh for airconditioning!!! Well, we'll be out of this house in the next few months, and just about every other house in this town does have aircon...

    Regarding problems with the site. I couldn't get into the 'Forums' section. To get here I had to go to my public profile and then click on my last post to this forum.

    Alois, love the cartoons, specially the first one. You should know by now that you never ever ever mention the 'Q' word - quiet - ; it automatically means you are going to have a rotten shift. Do you work in ED? As for your next door neighbour, I'm glad he has still got a son...

    Joe Nightingmale, good luck with the study. How far through are you?

    Suesquatch, haven't seen you around for a while, (we must have been on different threads ) but you sound alot happier. Is study agreeing with you? I detest it. Hows dh?

    Dianah, when you talk cats you talk my language! I own a 'domestic shorthair' , otherwise known as a moggy. She's only tiny, and rides on my shoulder, and will not eat unless she gets her morning pat. I figure she must have Turkish Van in her as she is ginger and white, but she talks like a Siamese. Can't believe the price of insurance for yours! Crikey, why bother paying for it?

    Conrad and Earle I have to laugh! I met dh at the nurses staff village, he was a psych nurse and I was an EN. I was trying to study, and he kept coming onto my verandah with a can of beer. I couldn't stand him...guess he grew on me...:trout:

    In the time I've been busily typing and reading, a beaut storm has blown up, and the breeze is heavenly. I looooovvve the Wet Season!!! I'm going to go out for a couple of minutes, and then try to hit the sack again. Catchya tomorrow...

    Hello dar! Thanks for starting the thread. Hmmm, so a guy has to grow on you? Me, I want love at first sight.

    Di, no yelling right now. You can yell in the am but not too early. I like to sleep late.

    Need to rewrite a paper I had turned in. My prof. said I didn't follow instructions well - my top is the patriot act and I get very very emotional when writing about something I hate. Well, it seems that my writing and my references were a little too, as she put it, mean. She gave me a D. I cried, I drank, I slobbered all over the paper and decided to show her how great of a writer I really am. So I got some new references and plan to rewrite this week although it's not due until Dec. 13. I need to focus more on my first 4 pages of my research paper which is due right after Thanksgiving. I decided last week that I wish I had chosen a different topic: women in the military, women in combat roles (which is currently illegal). Now that would have been interesting. Maybe I'll do that for fun.

    So that's what I'm doing today. Also, I got a new 'couch', I just have to blow it up. It's an air mattress that I'm going to use until I can afford to buy furniture. Which will be never. The trouble is that I can borrow my dad's truck to pick tables out at Goodwill or other secondhand store, but I cannot get it up 3 flights of stairs.

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Dar, Thanks for starting the thread!! Hope you finally got some sleep!!
    I know how rough it can be working the nite shift as I've done it for over 30 yrs. Those days you can't sleep turn into really rough nites!!
    In fact, usually they turn into the worst nites!!
    Dar, do you work 8 hr shifts or 12? I do 8 hrs so I work from 2300 to 0730. We have the option to do 12's or 8's. It's nice that we have some choice.

    Dianah, Hope all is well with you & hope you are getting some rest.

    Beth, Sorry about your grade on the paper!! I'm sure you'll do better next time around!! Hope you can get some sleep!! I remember before I was married and also right after, we lived in a high 3rd floor apt. It was always such a bother getting things up those stairs!!
    And, I was pretty young then!!Also, thin & healthy unlike now when I'm old & falling apart!!! LOL

    Well, I work again tonite. Nothing great planned for the day. DH is going to be out golfing all day, so I guess, I'll maybe get some extra sleep or reading time.

    I do hope you all have a great Tuesday!!

    See you all later.

    Morning everyone!

    Dar we're just at the end of the first quarter.

    bethin it sucks when you work hard on something and get a bad grade. I'm sure you'll do better the second time around.

    Morning Mary!

    Well, it's 3:30am here and I'm getting ready for the last of clinicals for the quarter, and the last day of class. :hatparty: Just an assessment test-off and a pharm lecture and that's it. Finals Monday and Tuesday of next week and I'm done. Hard to believe that the quarter's just about over.

    Morning friends!!!:smilecoffeecup:
    dar..thanks for starting the thread. hope you got some good rest.
    Beth; I get upset when my idea of a great paper doesnt match the profs!!:angryfire
    Mary and Di; enjoy your sleep!

    finally back after my long weekend away from an!! have signed on briefly to read but not had a chance to say hi!

    Wedding was wonderful ... have to figure out how to download some pics and post them. of course we had a couple of glitches; one usher became very ill that am and had to back out but my other fsil stepped in and saved the day. Then, during the reception, one of the guests had a seizure and needed to be shipped out by ambulance. Not sure exactly what happened; she spent noc in er and is being evaluated further.

    I must have caught the virus that the usher had as I have been ill for a couple of days ; slept almost all of sat and sunday; finally felt better yesterday. Attempting to go back to work today
    also, to dd#1 she is 25 today!!

    well better get motivated if i am going to go to work ... see you all later!! Mary

    just sitting here watching the sun come up. i think it's supposed to rain today. kinda cold right now.

    looks like i might have to make a trip to the laundromat some time today. my dryer finally died for good on thursday, right before i went out of town for the weekend. it's been sputtering for several months, but i've been able to rescucitate it several times. finally pulled the plug when it started smoking. dh is leaving for another business trip to nyc tomorrow and he needs some shirts washed, soooooooooooo.....looks like i'll be spending part of the day doing that.

    my dishwasher died a few weeks ago. looks like my appliances are suffering from a terminal virus. so while i am shopping for a washer and dryer, i might as well look for a new dishwasher. maybe i can get a group discount.

    i'm trying to help dd pack up her things. she got a job and will start the monday following thanksgiving. we will be moving her over thanksgiving, so looks like i won't be fixing thanksgiving dinner this year. guess we'll find a restaurant.

    lots to do today....

    hope y'all have a good one!
