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 remember when it would be a nuisance to lose your hairnet.

    Told ya it was a lie. Now, you've posted without telling a lie. Tell a lie, Stars. Unless you were being facetious?
    Jeeeeezzz, okay, okay. So the smarty-pants poster above me wears green lipstick, purple eye shadow, and has dyed her hair royal blue,

    Love the gif, Rosie. Wish I had that much overtime money banked up, but yeah, actually doing that much overtime is a different matter.

    Stars, I know you say you're not excited but it does seem as if hubs has been doing some introspection which is good.
    This has been his 'pattern' as long as I've known him...when things get right down into the nitty-gritty, he thinks and thinks and thinks, he has an epiphany, sincerely apologizes, and tucks that new life lesson into his book of experience, and actually follows through in his behavior.
    And later, he tells me he appreciates me putting up with him, says I've taught him more about life and relationships, and different ways of seeing, being, ways of dealing with things. So, he redeems himself. I just hate the nitty-gritty, but y'know, "the only way out is through."

    I'm done, my brain is full; may I be excused now, teacher?

    It is such a nuisance to have to cross your eyes and dot your teas.

    H'lo there, you'n's

    Thirty-one hours of OT? Rose, the thought makes me drool...well, except for the part where you have to be on-call and have to put in all that time at work!

    HAPPY 72nd BIRTHDAY herring! You are a true gem! YOU should be wearing a bow, 'cause you are such a gift to US!

    Joe, I'm tryin' t' ditch the lbs I've added back. Problem is my job on the weekends requires me to prepare my patient 3 meals a day, which she expects me to eat/share with her. And damn, I am a gooood cook. She also wants me to bake a two-layer cake every Sunday!I am weak-willed about that, because I add fruit between the layers and it is even more enticing when you put a scoop of ice cream on it.

    I am not complaining, mind you, because that is six meals o'er the W/E and on Mondays I drive that patient to eat out for both lunch and supper, which she pays for, always. She would rather go out to eat; the only meal she has at home is a bowl of wheaties in the morning.
    I'm saving $$ on buying groceries, what with having all those meals provided for me! Now I've got to practice PORTION CONTROL!

    Hubby and I are watching OPEN RANGE on AMC; he's never seen it. But Psssst! Don't tell him: I watched this same movie last night.We like westerns, and think Robert Duvall and Kevin Costner are terrific actors, particularly in westerns!. I am feeling generous-of-spirit tonight.

    Hubs and I had a quarrel the other day; he was furious (under the influence) that I had made a $25 donation to Paralyzed Veterans of America. He considered it "wasting our hard earned money." (I did not say "our hard-earned money?") What I did say in response, was, "As far as wasting our money goes, I have just one word: vodka."

    The next day when I got home from work, he said that he had realized that the only time we 'fussed' was when he had been drinking! AND he further blew me away when he told me he had called up a friend and former co-worker (who has been to rehab x2 and frequently attends several AA mtgs a week) and talked with him about the vodka...a fifth or more a day, he told me!
    I mean, seriously, even the DOGS don't like how he acts when he's been drinking and try to steer clear of him. He isn't mean, he just gets loud and a little too rough about insisting they play with him or come snuggle with him. Then he pouts and says if they don't like him, fine, then.
    So, hubs told me that he was going to try to kick it himself, but if that didn't work, his friend has offered to sponsor him if he decides to do AA. I am not excited, nor am I holding my breath; but I do feel somewhat pleased.

    Psst... NSIME, y'all are in the wrong thread. This is the weekEND thread. The poor lonely weekDAY thread is feels neglect out.
    Indeed. But hath thee not noticed all the posts prior to mine own, which are dated, like, um, 9-19-16, which is a MONDAY? And didst thou send a similar notation to those other posters, hmmmm?
    And anyway, HE started it! I was merely responding to a thread noted in my inbox. I didn't go searching for it.

    The poster above me has been sniffing highlighter pens again.
    Why d'ya think they call 'em HIGHlighter pens?!

    The poster above me has just opened a retail store which sells only ONE product, which comes in ONE size and ONE color. She sold out on opening day!

    (I don't know what the product is; the thread is only about telling a lie, and I did. Doesn't mean it has to have any follow-thru of thought to complete it.)

    Hope y'all didn't pay the ransom, 'cause I got away!

    Now that I've spent a while catching up on the past 5 days of GM thread, I can post.

    Tweety, I can't even begin to imagine handling so many admissions! GADS! No wonder you spend so many of your off hours on the beach!

    Joe, It's nice there is a "share" aspect to your accrued hours. We have no PTO or vacay time, no sick time, no shift or weekend differential, pretty much ZILCH. If I was younger, I'd definitely be tempted to change jobs, just to have a mere benefit or two!
    But, I do get to pick my schedule and my cases...and since I am cruisin' on Easy Street w/ my current "caseload" (HA!) I have not got the energy to present myself to an all-new cast of office characters, nor am I willing to make a resume' or answer questions like what is my goal, and where do I see myself in 5-10 years. My goal is to be able to pay my bills, since I'm unable to retire and still do so... and as for the other, in 5-10 years I see myself retired, having FINALLY won the Publishers Clearing House's BIG prize/check!!! <-- then I will change my screen-name to Lots of Dollar-Bill Signs In My Eyes (LDBSIME...doesn't roll off the tongue as easily as NSIME, does it?!)

    BCg- Even though your household is a dusty mess, I envy you your renovations.

    Steph, good news about your #1 son and the stem cells! Hope you have a safe trip and a good time visiting.
    I have never heard of testing a balloon on a F/C prior to insertion. Learn sumpthin' new every day!

    Far'wyn, What a useless secretary! Don't s'pose you could can her lazy arse?

    H'lo to StNeo and herring!

    Hope everyone's day is proceeding smoothly!
