    Hi Again,

    Well, another nite at work!! BUSY!!! They took one of our CNA's away to float!! So they leave one CNA for 17 pt's. That's not great when you have the high acuities that we do!! Well, yesterday nite, I floated, so at least they kept the 4 RN's tonite.

    This year in Illinois, they are going to vote, in Springfield, on staffing ratio's.
    The Hospitals are all freaking out & trying to push for staffing by acuity--you see how well they do this now. We are supposed to be staffed by acuity now-----and according to that, we should have 5 RN's!! Plus 2-3 CNA's.
    Oh well!! Isn't it great to work in Health Care!!

    I'm not planning to do much today!! DH wants me to start packing for vacation, but I think I'll wait until I'm off on Thur & Fri.
    We;re leaving Monday, so that's plenty of time. We're only going to be gone for 1 1/2 wks, so I'm not taking all that much!!

    I work again tonite.
    Haven't finished reading yesterday's thread yet.

    I hope you all have a LOVELY Day!!

    I'll look in again, later

    Another grey rainy day here. Lots of work to do though. One of my never-ending projects just got added to because I misunderstood something and I have to redo a few hours' worth of work.
    I have a few summaries due to the client by midnight, and I have a class tonight at 8 pm. Oh, and my dr's appt this morning.

    Good morning!

    Mary Ann, hope your trip goes well. Where is it that you are going? I know you told me once before. Arkansas?

    Just got back from db and sil's house. OMG OMG!!! There are some people who should have children and then there are some people who shouldn't. I think I fall under the second category. Kennedy has regressed back to being a baby, she won't walk, she crawls at times, etc. This morning, db had a meeting at work at 0700. My sil was in the shower. My responsibility was to get my nieces dressed. That was easy. Then the babies needed fed, not so easy. So I had Kennedy attached to my leg, as it was dragging behind me like an injured limb would, a baby in one arm and the other hand is trying to make bottles. I get the bottles over to the babies, and Emma and Kennedy start screaming, asking about daddy. I hear the front door open so I have to drag them back in kicking and screaming, meanwhile the 2 babies are still screaming and at that moment I thought what the heck, I started to scream. Screaming stopped. :spin: Then daddy comes in and all hell breaks loose again. That was my que to leave.

    Want to teach your teenager not to have sex? My db and sil for a small fee will allow your teenager into their home where he/she will take on the mom/dad role for a day - any more than that and the poor teen would be rendered unconcious.

    Hiya everyone! Haven't posted in a real long time. A lot of things going on and just didn't have much to say lately but figured I'd better say a quick hello. Work evening for me tonight and tomorrow. After having some lovely weather and getting psyched for spring, it's now back to being gray and drizzly only in the 40's and raw. Lots of little birdies on the lawn looking for food or berries so I have been keeping them fed with some bird seed. Kitties love watching them too.

    Catch you all later!
