Good Monday Morning! January 22, 2007

  1. Morning peeps!

    Hope everyone had a great weekend. Now it's back to the daily grind. I've got a class at noon (anatomy) and at 6p (lit) so I can stay up late, even if I should be studying. Rather be here.

    Sunday was horrible, see the end of yesterday's thread for that.

    Siri, I got my high speed stuff to install. I will be able to do it. Had it all put together and it wouldn't work. Then it hit me: it's part of my phone bill so it won't work until the 26th. Bummer.

    Hope you all have a great day!

    That doesn't mean you have no phone service til then, I hope!

    I'm off to bed (I hope). Relax and I'm glad you will have a late day tomorrow. Being able to stay up late helps me, somehow, when I'm stressed. I hang out on here and do email, watch TV, read, or gab on the phone ...

    Get some rest and I'll see ya! Hopefully not for another 8 hrs (oh Sleep Genie come to meeee....)

    xo

    No, I have phone service but the high speed won't take affect until my next billing cycle which is the 26th. I was so excited to come home and find the box here. Hooked it all up and nothing. And when I go home for the weekend I won't be able to use it - we can't get high speed in the middle of the woods with hills surrounding us.

    Hello! :kiss

    It is still Sunday night where I live, but I suppose I will get a couple of early posts in here. I completed another 16 hour shift today and am preparing to wind down for bedtime. I must attend classes at my local CC on Monday evening, so I will definitely need my beauty rest.

    Even though I have a Mon-Tues-Wed-Thurs school schedule, I have not yet attended any of my Monday/Wednesday classes due to weather-related cancellations. Therefore, today will mark the first day of my Mon/Wed classes. Pray for me, because I want to kick A&P's butt (and not the other way around).

    I'll pray for you if you pray for me that I kick A&P's butt!

    Good luck today.

    We have about 4 inches of Angel **** on the ground and are expecting sleet. I really need to go to class because I have an A&P test this week.

    Get some quality rest, Zoe. On occasion, nothing is better than uninterrupted sleep.

    g'day from "down under!"

    thanks for starting the thread beth, so's i could join in! what a sweet thing to do! :icon_hug: thank you! i do seem to miss out on all the fun, the time difference makes it near on impossible for me to join in at the same time y'all are here. it's now 4pm here in oz, so my monday is in it's latter stages. it's been a housework day for me! i try to get it all over and done with on monday's, then the rest of the week is free to pursue other things. mind you, i'm getting a bit slower than i once was! i used to be able to go through this place like a whirlwind and have it spick 'n' span in about 4 hours. the entire house! i'm finding it's taking me a bit longer of late! i just don't seem to have the energy, (or the strength), i once had. i wonder if the other, (older), gals here feel the same? since i've never been this "old" before, i'm not sure what to expect! :d is it just me, or is it how one feels at this age??? having worked long and hard, both physically and mentally, all my working life, maybe i'm just a bit worn out now?! who knows! i just wish i had the stamina and energy i once had!
    hope everyone who follows enjoy's their monday!
    cheers....................

    Grace, I have the answer for all your pains: hire a housekeeper.

    Now, I don't have the answer on how to pay for it.

    that'd be no good, i'd be running around ensuring the place was clean before the housekeeper arrived! lol

    besides, it'd be practically immoral for me to have a housekeeper. i'm retired! so ............ no excuses!

    I'd love to have a full-time housekeeper. Keeping my home and vehicles clean is quite the annoying feat, so it would be nice to delegate the tedious tasks to someone else (if I had the money).

    good monday morning, everyone! it's almost 11pm here, and soon i'll be in(and out of) the shower and snuggled in my beddy-bye!


    housekeeper would be very nice, indeed! grace, you don't need an excuse! even if you're retired, it would take some wear and tear and worry off you . . . i'd love to have one, but i can't afford it right now. i vote for a housekeeper for you! maybe just every two weeks ? ? ?

    second loaf of bread sure smells good . . .

    Good Monday morning.

    A few years ago, I had a cleaning lady - it was my gift to myself and I loved, loved, loved it. Unfortunately, I couldn't keep it up financially so I had to go back to our family doing it. One day I'll get another one.

    When I left for work this evening, my desktop computer still wasn't behaving. Won't recognize any keyboard I connect and usually I can fix our computers myself, but because of my very painful back, I can't crawl around underneat the desk and I really don't feel like trying to fix it. I'm very frustrated because I use that computer for my writing and editing. Darned lucky I was able to transfer my files to my laptop without losing anything vital. Anyway, there are worse things in life, right? I'll get around to fixing it when I can stop feeling sorry for myself with this darned back.

    Third of four nights tonight - one more to go tomorrow. I have a conference call at 9:30 with a client though for some content I am going to write on HPV. Hopefully I'll be awake enough to muddle through it.

    Bethin, sorry about the baby yesterday. I honestly don't know how I would handle it. I've never worked in peds. I was offered a job in NICU once, but I found out the next day that I was pregnant so I turned it down. Probably for the best in the long run.
