    I've been really sick for over a week.
    Still been going in to work but today they actually walked me out to my truck and told me to rest, drink fluids etc...
    They even had a NP come in and prescribe me some ATB's and an inhaler.
    I'm pretty sure I have pnuemonia.
    I have to get better before Saturday...Wood cutting day!
    *cough cough* Hack Hack*
    This really sucks!

    Hope you are feeling better soon, why is it that we as nurses, fail to take initiative and stay home, when we don't feel good?
    Do I really think that the world would fail to revolve if I did not show up for work one day?
    Pneumonia should be taken seriously, take care of yourself. Besides, it's too cold in your neck of the woods to be cutting wood when you are sick. OK, I'm finished being your mother for now.

    Include green tea in your fluids.

    This really pissed me off. I switched from digital cable to Direct Tv b/c it's cheaper and still gives me Discovery Health channel (I'm addicted). Well, I decided to rent one of my rooms out to a friend who's also a nursing student. So now I have to move the direct tv box to another room so she can move into the 'good' bedroom. Okay, call them up, they say they;ll waive the fee and come out this morning between 8-12. My mom was so kind as to sit in my house for 4 hours waiting for them so I wouldn't have to take time off work (she's self-employed). THEN----nothing. They never showed up. The office can't track them down, and my mom wasted 4 hours!!! At least she was able to get some work done, but sheesh! I've never had a cable service call that went smoothly, has anyone???

    My boo hoo - I've come to the realization that I am terminally single. I don't know what I did in my previous life to deserve this relationship exile, but, fine, I have accepted my fate. I'm just so very sorry that Emma will never have the kind of great Dad that I have. Boo hoo.

    I'm broke. Not just I can't go shopping for new jeans. Like I have no money. I check the mailbox every day for a mystery reimbursement check from my health insurance co, who are the biggest pain in my behind for repeatedly doing this same thing. It is literally a huge amount of money (to me of course!) and conviently I get voice mail when I call our companies rep. I actually had to call and set a new payment date for the phone bill & I feel like a big loser. I can't stand living paycheck to paycheck depending on that check to come in the mail anymore. I don't care what anyone here may think compared to this RN salaries look wonderful. Come on payday, hurry up

    There I'm done. Hope everyone's day get's better. Still got a couple hours before the mail comes today-here's hoping.

    Ok, perhaps I shouldn't complain about this but I will anyway.
    I've been dating for awhile... men and women. Y'all know this already. Every single promising person that I meet and date... its as if I'm instantly committed.
    I hate that. Its the just add water and stir for instant commitment/marriage/cohabitation/kids/the whole nine. Doesn't anyone date anymore?
    Can't I just be casual and have fun being single? Why do I have to settle down so quickly? Why does everyone want to monopolize all of my time and energy and restrict my options?
    And then I'm in the terrible position of giving my 'I'm not really looking for commitment right now' speech. I'm getting pretty good at it. I need to give it again, tonight, to a guy... he thinks cause he made me dinner and offered to finance medical school that I should marry him or something.
    I am not looking for a husband. Maybe I should have that tattooed somewhere. People are moving waaay too fast.
    I mean, I understand its difficult to find someone to be in a relationship with. I get that, and I sympathize. But I've recently come out of a *long* term relationship and I'm not looking to be shacked up again, instantly, without really evaluating what I want to do.

    And......... I have another thing to rant about.

    I just recently found out that ever since my ex-lover and I broke up, my mother has been emailing her regularly. They have this clandestine communication where she comments on how selfish and self-absorbed I am, my mother agrees and shares the current details of my life and romantic entanglements.
    Ok, she even invited the ****** to Thanksgiving dinner.
    Am I the only one who thinks this is a totally jacked up situation?

    No thanks. I give up. I am moving to the island of the unwanted.

    Anyone know a good book on how to unwillingly deal with celibacy without becoming homocidal? Just wonderin'.... :stone
