Wish me luck!

Nancy's explanation was spot on. When JCAHO comes life as you know it ends 'til they leave. They nit pick everything and you have to be prepared to do re-writes on every document they pick on. They can stop nurses on the floors and ask all kinds of questions and you'd better have the right answer. They pull random charts and take them apart, also personnel files for all the proper certifications. Barb is in the OR so they're probably pulling random instruement trays and checking all her rooms. NIGHTMARE!!!!!

Oh good, I am glad I wasn't the only one who had no idea what JCAHO was. Embarassed

So is RCI still renting tuxes? Have they worked that all out yet? I know they changed companies. I have to get Rich measured for the Feb1 cruise.

I don't know what they are doing with the tux rentals on RC. I know the cruiselineformalwear site says they will ship it to your home now. That's why I went ahead and bought hubby a tux. The Christmas on QM2 is supposed to have between 5 and 7 formal nights, and I couldn't find any info on the Cunard site about tux rentals.

PS- I couldn't get Jim to try on his tux last night, he was to tired. Rolling Eyes

I think I need to get him a regular black bow tie though, because I ordered a long black formal tie, and a silver bow tie, probably also need a black bow tie.

Have a good day everyone, I'll be cleaning house today.

Jen, I read in the Cunard book that they do rent tuxes onboard and I found Cunard listed on the Cruiselineformalwear site, but I"m not sure which site I it on found! Except cruise, Ray will Never wear a tux and since his weight fluctuates and I need ALL the extra room in the suitcases, I think we will continue to rent a tux when necessary.

Off to do chores, grocery shopping and hair cut this afternoon.

Oh, and Jen, go to your local tux rental place for the ties. I bought Ray a couple of different colored vests at our local place REALLY cheap! That way when he rents a tux, he has his own unique vest to go under it and it doesn't end up looking as much like all the other rented tuxes onboard. Also the ties and vests don't wear out like the jackets do!

Afternoon everyone.................it is raining here..............just waiting for it to change to snow.

Michele, love your avatar. I think that your little girls are just precious.

Thanks for the explanation on JACHO. I know that I am not the brightest bulb in the pack sometimes...........but I really didn't want to be the first to ask the question of what it was.

Welcome back Jean, Jill and Diane...............hope you all had a great cruise.

Jul or Patti, would love to see pictures of snow! And Christmas decorations!
Maybe that will get me in the holiday spirit!

Susan, that's good advice, I will check out the local shops.

Jim tried on tux, it just fits! I told him no gaining weight! He then scowled at me! The nerve! But I think a size bigger would be to big, so we will stick with this one.

Back to cleaning.........

That's a great idea! Thanks! I will do that. I have to rent the tux because frankly, I don't like giving up the space for my clothes to fit HIS tux. Wink So I can fit a few vests or ties. Good idea. Very Happy

Patti - Awww thanks Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Tanks Nancy for the explanation

Yes they pick everything to the bone and then dig the marrow

They do "tracers" on charts and dig into the departments that have had contact with that patient

Only bright spot is if they do come, my calendar will be cleared....for the whole week Very Happy right now I only have time empty on Monday...so either way will be a busy week...but then 5PM Friday...I'm gone HappyHappyJoyJoy

Snow....wow Juls

I have cleaned & stood the tree in place...we will decorate next Sat with John & Daniel

Bet Kathy is having fun right now.

Watching football....Danny is watching his eyelids affraid

Hi All. Had my jewellery show this morning. I have a $200 to spend on free stuff. Cheers Yay I'll be decked out for my next cruise.
The 3 little ones are here now and I'm calling out for Pizza in a while.

We are having the strangest weather. It thundered and lightninged last night and today it was sunny and 75 but we have tornado warnings for the county and it's only to be 45 tomorrow so we may be in for a wild night.

Good luck with the JCAHO Barb. Glad I'm out of it.

I havn't even thought about a Christmas tree. Guess I'll try to get it done over Thanksgiving weekend. I really have to get my rear in gear and do some shopping.

I got Bob's tux at Value City which is now going out of business so I ran down there to see if I could get some shirts or bow ties but they're all gone already. Oh well.

Off to order the Pizza.

Sounds like all of you are very busy today. We are having cold, gloomy weather again, below freezing with snow showers.
I just ordered my last Christmas gifts, had them sent to San Fran daughter so we are now finished.
Looking forward to a quiet night here, maybe a glass of wine soon.

Have a good eve--

Sheila, I am going to my neighbor's jewelry party tonight!

I have all the doors and windows open today, it's a little breezy but warm.

Nancy, I haven't even started my Christmas shopping yet, I just don't even know where to start. cyclops

The snow has arrived............but it's of the wet variety. 4 counties are under a snow advisory through Monday evening............we live in one of those counties. Guess that's the price we pay for living so close to the lake. Shocked

The wind is blowing up a storm.............so I do believe that there are no more leaves left on anyone's trees. Hopefully the grass will be put to sleep after this snow fall.

It's nice to read of everyone's Christmas decorations going up. No decorations here.............it's just the two of us...........and since I have to put them up and take them down............I decided not this year.

Have a wonderful evening.........................

Jul, where am I MIA??? Razz What did I miss?

Barb I'll have some wine! When I was shopping today, I had a $5 off coupon for Baileys and they had a new flavor... coffee, so I tried it. I mixed it with some Southern Comfort Egg Nog and boy was it good, but rich and now I'm in big need of something lighter like wine.

Got my hair cut this afternoon at with a new stylist... she did ok, but it is always so hard to start with a new stylist!

I always put up our big tree in the living room so it faces the street, but we never sit in there, so I've been staring at the 4 walls of the family room trying to figure out if I can re-arrange the room to make enough room for the "big" XMas tree. I've just been putting a smaller tropical XMas palm tree in there... decisions, decisions...

I'm more than ready to drink with y'all. I have a Reisling poured but I'll switch to Zin to join you.
I have 3 kids bubble bathed and hair washed. Jammies on, popcorn popped and we're watching the new Veggie Tales movie. (Well they are but I'm on here drinking) Drinks Ain't life grand. Laughing
