Hi! Thanks for checking out my page. I've been a member of allnurses since Apr 8th, '11. I have no blogs or journals to follow, but you are welcome to find me on the threads I follow, where I love humor and silliness to counter the seriousness of life. Feel free to chime in. Currently work PD/Geriatrics.

    I've been gone for nearly a week and came back expecting several pages of this thread to read. There's not even "crickets" here, just the void of a gaping abyss!

    OldDude, Do you remember the Smothers Brothers singing a song about the love affair between Herman the lobster and Sally the crab?

    Herman was lectured, warned by his own family, church, and community, warned their romance would never work out because ...

    ---2,3,4 ---

    "Crabs walk sideways and Lobsters walk straight, so you can't ever take her for your mate..."

    One day Herman saw Sally on the street, and...there she was...walking as straight as straight could be! Herman went running over to her and said, "Sweetheart! Now we can be married!" and Sally replied,

    " *hic* don' shweethar' ME!"

    There are thousands of stories in the Big Ocean; this is just one of them.

    The way I figure it is that when I was younger, I had energy to burn. I could go anywhere and do anything. So I did. Before 12 hour shifts took over the world, I was a staunch 3-11-er. I loved buzzing around on a busy floor, juggling my assignment and helping others with theirs if needed. I loved floating as it kept me on my toes and I was never bored.
    I left hospitals when I 'found' Home Health. LOVED it! After nine years my company started making changes and the home health division moved to another company.
    I've been doing Private Duty off and on for YEARS, but I have stopped taking the physically challenging cases. In my earlier career I always took on the quads; I could heave and heft with the best of 'em, and didn't consider it hard work.
    Generally, most of the time now, I've been lucky enough to get "good" cases that last a while...several for 2-3 years at a time.
    I will be turning 68 during the mid-summer. I paid my dues and then some. I am more than happy to let the enthusiastic younger nurses have their day. I will sit back and admire them. I used to be like them.

    I love the School Nurses site!
    Love the title of this thread!
    Prior to last year when I discovered it, I had no clue what y'all have to do, go through, endure (and enjoy!) as a School Nurse. It is a lot more complicated than I ever realized, and mah gawd the paperwork . . . I could not do School Nursing and remain sane. Kudos to you all!

    P.S.:I want to be there when OldDude wields the shovel; can I bring a few folks with me to sneak them into the crowd he is going to 'impress'?? They really do need a shoveling in the worst way!
