Good Friday Morning 6/11/04

  1. I know it's early, but thought I'd get a head start anyway. My friend Lou is goingin for surgery about 7:00 am today. I know she'll be fine, but my insides are in knots anyway. Hope everyone has a great day, and I'll keep you guys updated. Love y'all.

    Good Morning!

    Untie those knots WW they aren't helping her, and it's not a measure of your concern or friendship. Good luck to your friend.

    Not much going on with me. Went to the gym and walked the dogs already. Studying a bit for ACLS and reading, just relaxing.

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Morning Tweeters and WW!

    WW....I'll say a prayer for your friend!

    Tweety......good to see you are studying! LOL! You still have time...just cram it in there. I am sure you will do fine!

    Suzanne...you do what you need to do but you sure will be missed!!! Take care of yourself!

    Phn92.....How did your day go with the immunization clinic yesterday?

    Eltrip........I love your credo "Use it up, wear it out. Make it do or do without." I'm gonna steal it for my house, k?

    Deb......all those links! Thanks! I'm gonna have to bookmark them because I don't know when I'll find time to look at them with my schedule the way it is right now. (can't cut into my all nurses time! LOL!) And no...no slack! you're supposed to get up three hours earlier so that you are up when I am I also have a book with tips in it...maybe I'll start a thread where we can share them, along with links.

    Fran........good to see you but get back in bed, woman!

    Fay......glad you get along with your MIL. I don't know if my MIL and I will ever see eye to eye!

    Leslie......what to say to you crazy girl......hmmmmmmmm.......just don't know, but I DO love ya!

    Donny......good to hear you are getting somewhere with the house painting.

    Mickie......what a tragedy, especially for Regan to see! (by the way, I almost picked that name for Piper!) Poor girl......I hope she is okay through it all. I will say some prayers for her and for the whole family. Mickie...I want to tell you too, that you inspired me to figure out the money situation and register for one class in my second summer session.

    Netters...you crack me up! How did you do golfing?

    Liza..........LOL@ you being a ball buster!

    Diana......how was your eggplant? I never tried it until a few years ago and find that I really like it. It's amazing what can happen if you just try something new!

    Kate...never had an interview like that. Sorry it was uncomfortable for you.

    Yesterday was a bit crazed and I never made it back on here. We took the kids for their pictures and then I came back home with Bryce while Bryan took the other two to get sand for the sandbox and some boards to cover our cords so Bryce can't get them. I can't believe how fast that kid can crawl! LOL! Unbelievable! My other two never crawled. Trey just walked and Piper scooted, then walked.

    I went over to the school to take the financial aid office a copy of my social security card. Then, I went and registerd for my Sociology course that I decided to take in the second summer session. This is probably going to knock me down to part time status for my second semester but I would rather lose some of my grants than fail out. We'll see what happens. I need a few minutes to sit down with my schedule and see where I am at with everything.

    So by that time, I was tired and took the kiddos in to lay down and watch cartoons. Piper and I fell asleep for a couple hours, so then I was running around trying to get supper and get the house picked up because our potential new sitter was coming to meet us. Her name is Kimmy and she is fabulous! I think I hit the jackpot here. First a disclaimer.....I am mentioning this only because it pertains to what is going on: She is black. My kids aren't used to black people because they have never really been around them. I think it will be a fabulous thing for them to have her as a sitter (there are other reasons as well..which I will list) to not grow up afraid or prejudiced in any way. She is also a Christian, which just floats my boat right on over Niagara Falls! She is super with the kids and very, very nice. (even hugged me when she left) She is also 21, a senior college student this coming year and only wants $5 an hour. She is going to come on the 21st for the first time to stay with the kids while I run to a dr. appointment. I think it will be a good trial for all of us. I had a small concern with Trey with her but it's something more that he and I have to work through and I'll think about mentioning it here and see what you all think.

    By the time she left, CSI and ER were on so I watched the mindless TV and went to bed. The bankruptcy lawyer didn't call yesterday morning by 10:20 and they were supposed to call at 10 so Bry left and came to help me with the pictures. Now, we are going to have to call them and reschedule. *sigh* I just want it all over with!

    Today is a bunch of little crap that needs done...a lot of bills and paperwork and then I have a dr. appointment at 3:!5 to discuss how my meds. are working for me (fabulously!). I have a bunch of stuff to take back to the grocery store too, so at least I'll get some time alone today.

    I got up at 6:30 and got dressed to go walk, but Trey was awake and in the playroom and threw a fit even though I told him that he and I would go later. So then he wanted me to go after talking to his dad but Bryce was up by then and Bryan didn't get out of bed, so how was I supposed to leave? :angryfire ya know, I really don't ask for much but an hour to go walk would be nice once in a while if not every day!

    Men! (sorry Tweeters and Donny)

    Okay, I gotta go try to catch up before I start all my paperwork and frustrating stuff this morning!
