too much time on my hands...

  1. I was following a debate on another thread about an unrelated matter when one poster mentioned that those engaged in the debate had "too much time on our hands"...
    That hit home...Hard
    Maybe it's not that I have too much time on my hands. After all, as I sit here writing this, I've got a chart audit form to edit, an education plan for Lap chole patients to write, an ACLS class to teach this afternoon, minutes for a Night Shift Safety meeting to transcribe, a grant proposal for back safety equipment to complete, etc. etc. etc.
    I bring Allnurse up at work and hit it for short bursts of "sanity" between the other things I do. Sometimes at night I sacrifice an hour of sleep to check up on forums I'm interested in. If something's driving me nuts, I write and submit a humorous story about it. I guess it's not "too much time", it's lousy time management skills.:imbar
    Anyway, to the "too much time" poster, I needed that reality check. :kiss I'll try a little harder to behave myself from here on in.

    I don't think it's "Too much time on my hands" ...or anyone else's for that matter. I think that it's an abundance of creativity combined with a wicked sense of humor flowing forth on these forums.

    This board is many things to all of us. A place to network, gather information, & compare notes with other nurses. It's also a place where, in the appropriate thread, we can cut loose & kick up our heels a bit...not always possible to go out & have a good time when the wee ones are in bed...

    Just my 2 pennies' worth!

    Some days it's sanity I find here, other days it's not. Always it's a touch of reality that can get lost when you spend too many hours trapped in an office at work.

    I love the Bulletin Boards, if I don't have time for a real break, I just hop on the puter and read some notes from other nurses and it helps me get back on track. I am like some of the other posts.....I have sooooooo much to do and so little time but I get in her and read the posts. BTW I better get back to my work

    Yes I have too much time on my hands, and I love it. I lived for it, worked for it and Now Im there. 6 out of 7 kids are raised and out and I love that too. Ant the bulletin boards are informative and fun. I love a good argument. A good discussion. and the humour.

    doo wah ditty
    Hmmm... well, I guess when someone has the time and inclination to keep track of how much time I spend on here... well, then maybe they are the ones with way too much time on their hands.

    Come here as you please.... I'll be here waiting
