  1. Morning peeps!

    Can't sleep as I'm anticipating the birth of my new precious nieces. C section is going to be scheduled today for either Thurs or Fri but I can't wait until then!! I want to hold them in my arms now!

    Planning on going to the zoo today as I've never in my 27 years been to the zoo. Printed off my ticket online and I'm reserved to see the dolphin show. If I had more money I would swim with the dolphins. They have a new program where you get in the water with them, ride them, feed them, etc.

    Hope you all have a good day! Enjoy the weather!

    GOOD MORNING, LITTLE PEEPS!!

    Hi Beth,
    Thanks for starting the thread!! You sure do sound excited about those nieces!!! How Wonderful it must be to have an Aunty like yourself & also how gfreat is it to be so close to them!! I always lived way accross country from myy nephews while they were growing up. Not as much fun that way. In fact, I seldom saw them.
    I sure hope you have fun at the zoo. We used to go to the zoo's here in Chicago real often when we were kids---I'll bet several times a year. As an adult I've gone a few times with DH. We usually will visit zoos wheb we visit other towns.
    In fact, when we would go up to the North Woods every year on vacation, we would always stop at there little zoo.
    I would LOVE to do that swin with the dolphins thing too--have heard about it!!

    What a difference 24 hrs makes!!! I'm at work again---Last nite was the WORST Night in MONTHS!! Tonite, much better---as you see I have time to write on this site!!
    Right at the Very beginning of the shift last nite, EVERYTHING went BAD!!
    The entire Communication system went down----including the emergency telephones & all the computers---even our emergency onesA!!!
    Not only that, but to make things worse, it was SWELTERING in here!!!
    EVERYONE--and I do mean all staff were perspiring!! I went to the staffing meeting at 0330 & even the REALLY SKINNY tall guy from ICU was dripping sweat!!
    Not just that, but I was Charge & had 6 pt's one of which was Combative, agitated, confused etc!!!
    What a nite.

    When I got home I was so exhausted, I sat at my computer, went to allnurses & promptly fell asleep right there!!!

    Well, there are those nites.
    Tonite, Much better---not Charge; The patient is still here & still combative & agitated but quieter!!
    It's also a better temperature here---not cool but not so muggy & HOT!!, either.

    I'll be off tonite, which is really good-----They will start Tuckpointing our house this morning. I hear this can be quite noisey!! Well, at least I don't have to worry about needing to sleep.

    DH is going golfing bright & early!! He's so excited!! Our temperatures have been soaring here--record highs!! They are to be back down, tho, by the end of the week.

    Well, got to run now;

    I'll leave you all with a quick cuppa!!:smiletea2: :smiletea: :smilecoffeeIlovecof :smilecoffeecup:

    Hope everyone has a really great day!!

    See you all

    Greetings everybody from the Insomnia Patrol! :zzzzz Lots on my mind lately but every day is a day closer to getting it figured out.

    Thank you both for your support on my ethical conflict. This site means so much to me!!

    I'll put off the cuppa until dawn--right now I think I'll see if I can get a little more shut-eye.

    Catch ya'll later!

    Hi Mary, glad tonight is better - you made me tired-er just reading your post of last night's events. :uhoh21:

    Good morning all!
    Bethin, I hope you get to hold those nieces soon!
    Sorry to the insomniacs, I definitely know how that feels.
    good morning all.

    Interesting change in the political landscape of Quebec yesterday - we stayed up late to watch the results. I'm not displeased because it may really shake things up.

    Saw the dr about my thumb yesterday evening, I have to make an appointment with a plastic surgeon now. It actually hurts more today than it did yesterday. Sigh.
    Ok, time for my breakkie and then some work to do!

    Hi Siri !

    What's keeping you busy today? Huh, huh?

    Well... now I have time on my hands.. I hate that.

    Just hung out a load of wash.. dh's sheets and spread I took off to replace with Mutti's. Got another load of odds 'n ends going, so I'll hang those out, too. Gotta find SOMETHING to do, afterall... can't just SIT here.

    Think I'll go out back and fill our waterfall fountain.. was hesitant to put water in it yet thinking we could still get a freeze or two.. but not THIS week ! No way. Going to be in the high 60's to mid 70's all week...

    So I guess we're safe to fill it. Pati and Roo haven't seen it yet.. they gave us $$ Christmas before this last one to purchase it. Then they were suppose to come for their summer visit in August, and that's when Mutti came back from Germany in full blown Alzheimer, so I ended up flying out there instead.

    So they'll finally get to see and enjoy it this week. Heck, I've already got the pansies and ivy set around it in pots, might as well fill it and enjoy it, right?

    RIGHT!

    OK.. first I finish my Kashi Go Lean Crunch. Then I'll go do that. Food first.

    Always.

    Good Morning!

    I have been up since before the sun and birds researching...ugh! A few of the nurses I work with want to rally together and start a Union so they asked me to attack the information finding quest. I am a bit tenacious and usually not afraid of a challenge...Me thinks this is not always a good thing

    Anyway I have made phone calls over the past week and sent e-mails...Nothing...Nadda...Zip! I hear about Union talks all of the time but I cannot even get a representative to respond to me. I have also searched this site for any help...NOTHING! I also cannot get any of the nurses in my area to post when I post questions about this area. FRUSTRATING to say the least!

    Oh well, another day, another challenge, another learning curve I know that Union stuff is difficult at times, and takes time but GEEZ!

    Back to the search and another pot of java:smilecoffeecup: Maybe I should do some cleaning to get my mind off the search for a while? NAH...

    I hope you all have a great day!
