So sorry there is so much turmoil at your workplace! When I read your post, I was like "Whhhhaaaattttttttt"! That is crazy for people to be "escorted" away !!! Makes you wonder what is really going on in management. Any other work options for you in the area?

Stress can really make you hold on to extra weight - Cortisol thing.

Hope it gets calmer for you and co-workers.

Laura, I so sorry your workplace environment is so stressful right now. Stress can make a body hold on to weight. To be "escorted" off the premises is really shocking! Makes you wonder what the heck is going on behind the scenes. You are a strong woman! Focus on what your task is and be the best ER nurse you can be! That's what you signed up for - not the other drama .

How scary that they just let people go on the spot and es*cort them from the building. Have they no consideration for how their families will survive? That is horrible. I am just happy that you are okay. Although I am sure that it is stressful to have it happening around you.

Hope you are doing fine otherwise Enjoy your weekend!

Thanks everyone ..... yep it's stressful that things keep changing. As far as being afraid that I will be let go ? Nope, no stress at all ! lol ! They are hiring nurses at EVERY hospital around, I could have another job in a few days. And , they know that. but, they don't pay as well here. The schedule is great though. Would hate to lose that ;/

I just hated that several of the best , hardest working staff was let go years ago and all these "yahoos" have been running the place. It's gone to pot ..... they didn't know what they were doing.

oh well, back for day 4 .......ttyl !

muggy and raining ! Hope this last day goes smooth......

DS1 and DIL have to move this week. They sold their house. The place they were looking to buy had too many problems so they backed out of buying it. They don't want to rent.... may stay here for a while with Shelby but I doubt it. :?

They are still looking.... DIL and Shelby must have stayed last night ( DS is working so he's here ) but they left before I woke up ! ;/ Oh well....

Don't know if they will let us help pack ( she has been packing for a few weeks since she quit working ) or if we will keep shelby so they can.... whatever they want us to do I guess.

DS2 and his fiance are still looking for something to buy too. we live near so many power plants that they get snapped up right away if they are decent ~ makes it hard for them.

Hope you all have a Blessed Sunday !

Wow! Two kids and their wives (fiancÚ) looking for homes. Too much too close together. One house hunt is enough at one time. I hope they both find the right place at the right price. Must be difficult in a hot market like the one they're looking in.

I'm glad your work week is over. Cool that you met that nice pastor and wife! I agree with you; I wish there were more really nice patients. Unfortunately, when people are under stress and especially when they are in the ER like you see them, nobody's in a great mood.

Hang in there with all the moving and with helping out where you can. Have a great day.

Laura, you are an amazing mom and a fabulous grandmom too (although you sure don't look like any grandmoms I know -- you look super young and fit). I am glad you met some nice patients -- that is really cool. What you do as an ER nurse is so important. When Tony was in the ER for his heart attack at Mass General, the nurses and staff were so terrific -- just super professional, competent and all grace under pressure. That is such a hard job and I am sure you do yours with complete grace.

I also hope your work environment is getting better. Thinking of you!

Hope all goes smoothly for your boys with their house hunting. I know you will be happy to see them settled into their homes. Mommas always worry about their kids know matter how old they are! Have a good day!

Supposed to cool off starting Wed !! Yippee !! Was 86 today.

DH and Allie are asleep on the couch. ~~ Guess everyone on here is asleep too...... I'm just piddling on the computer and relaxing .

It's so strange to me that it is so warm there It is definitely fall here. Colored leaves are scattered on the ground. The average temperature is in the high 60's. It is one of my fave times of the year. This week I plan on carving pumpkins with the boys. And, I do have JODY'S PUMPKIN BAKE - Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes baking in the oven, so that just adds to the nostalgia of fall. My house smells amazing right now I hope this tastes as good as everyone claims!!

GG (aka greengeeny), I am so with you! Love Fall and this one seems to be better than some in the past. We've been very blessed so far with the weather. Sometimes it can feel like fall all the way to Thanksgiving. I'm hoping it's that kind of year.

Laura, that's exciting that the 70's are on the way! Wooohoooo! And that your work week is done. Nurses EARN their time off. I found out yesterday that one of the young ladies who volunteers at the farm wants to be an RN. I shared with her that I was a disabled RN and thank the Lord, she didn't ask what my disability was. But I literally started to stammer when I asked her where she planned to go to school. I'm better off working with the horses right now. Maybe someday I can go back on a limited basis. The good times were definitely good and sometimes I really miss the skills that I used in nursing. I haven't started an IV since the summer of 2006. That's a long dang time.

Have a splendid day.

We had a good day ( except for my allergies ) !! i have been sniffling/sneezing all day ~~ took all the meds I have and they did nothing ;/

We had a big breakfast and then played outside. Went to town for a surprise ~ I took some bread and took her to a park and we fed the ducks and she played on the playground with some kids. She loved it !

Came home and she wanted to make "Santa" cookies with sprinkles I wanted to make another kind, but we made what she wanted. She did good.....we did make a huge mess though lol !

I will meet DIL in the morning to give her back ~ DH and I are going into Houston to run errands and eat out before my nephew's football game. I promised we would go so we will make a day of it .

Hope you all had a great one. Weather was beautiful here !

What a great day with Shelby! Funny about the Santa cookies. She's got Christmas on her mind, I guess. Glad the weather is nicer and hope your allergies settle down. Have fun in Houston and at the game!
