    Hi Zoe, hope you're sawing some serious logs!

    Good morning to all, but I'm about to head for bed (it's 10:45 here).

    Today's Wacky Website is TRULY WEIRD!!!

    I gave away the descriptive paper, but here's the website:

    Whoa, I hit "enter" when I didn't mean to, lol!

    Anyway, it's the weirdest organ you've ever heard, hahahaha!!

    Even my kids' eyes glazed over when I showed it to them!

    Have a good day!! D

    Di, I didn't get anything but a bunch of mens faces.

    I fell asleep, then woke up with a headache and now I can't fall back asleep.

    Hope you all have a great day!

    I'll be spending the day at the hospital with my dad. I can't sleep right now either. I know he's okay but I'm feeling worried.

    Whoa sorry to all you insomniacs. Not nice, I know.

    Tonight I am commencing my first night shift in a 3 week stretch (well I won't be working constantly for 3 weeks but you know what I'm talking about).

    On Monday I submitted 3 more job applications at the hospital I want to work at. Sigh, they seem SO unimpressed with the geriatric background. Why can't anyone seem supportive of a change. Why does a GREEN new grad look better than a nurse with 8 years of experience who just seems to have been working in geriatrics. I'm trying to keep my spirits up. But dammit.

    Getting ready for work. Won't be home 'til later today... another exciting, thrilling, bloodsurging nurses' meeting to attend at noon.
    Can't wait.

    Hope everyone has a good day !

    Mornin' everyone. I don't want to move this morning. Didn't sleep well either. I've got a staff meeting after work today too. At least we get OT for it. Got my CPR resert done last evening. That's done for 2 years now. Today I care for a man with uncontroled pain with esophagus CA. He's 5 years older than I am. I'll probably have him tomorrow too. Hope I can help get him comfortable. Well, gotta get a move on. Hope you all have a splendid God blessed day.

    mornin' y'all!

    tazzirn....hope all is well with your father.

    adrie....sorry for the frustration, but you know, there are many green nurses out there saying, "why can't someone just give me a chance?" it is rough on both sides. i hope you catch a break soon, and you land the best job ever!

    jnette...have fun in that meeting! ha

    dianah....ummmmm weird is right. your sound up? did you click on the faces? (click once, then mouse-over each one.)

    zoe....hope you got some sleep.

    compassion1...hope your day is can be, at least. i hope you can help you pt.

    mostly a study day here. i have to take a brisket to dh's job around 10 or so. it's been cooking all night.

    i scheduled kirsten's tonsillectomy for march 15th. it was the only available day during spring break. it's a thursday, which isn't great, but hopefully she'll feel up to going back to school the following tuesday...with meds. ha her f/u is the following monday, so we'll see.

    she can't have the surgery the friday before spring break d/t her semester ending then. (they have 9 week condensed semesters at her high school.)

    oh well...she may miss 5 days of school all at once if she doesn't feel like going back on tuesday.

    i don't want to wait until summer because you never know what life has in store. i pray we still have insurance, the money, etc, but you never know.

    ok.....'nuff of that. y'all have a great day!

    Morning, All:
    What a difference a day (and a dentist) makes! This time yesterday morning I was exhausted from lack of sleep and in excruiating pain from a decayed wisdom tooth. I'm still sore from the extraction, but at least I was able to sleep yesterday afternoon and last night.

    Am off today for a scheduled appointment with my PCP, whom I haven't seen in almost two years. Now that I once again have medical insurance, I have to get a referral from him in order to see my pain management specialist in February.

    Ahh, the wonderful world of managed care. Where would we be without it?? :chuckle

    Ya'll have a good one!
