a grand good morning to all,
monday morning and no fishing in my immediate future
i've been listening to all of your "back to school/in school" problems and i think i'd like to do that. i'm going down to my hr today and see what they will pay if i go to school other than unm. at unm, they will pay 100% of undergraduate work, but i was thinking more "on-line" courses, as my work(noc shift)has me a little time constrained. i've sent out inquiries to univ of phoenix, jacksonville and regents. trying to find the best bang for my buck. any of you have leads/recommendations for "on-line" schools? i'm an adn and want to fast track to my bsn. i'm 49 now and would like to achieve my msn before i'm 55.
well, another day to quit smoking. i've been at this on again/off again smoking crap for so long that i'm really becoming disillusioned. when i smoke, 90% of me wants to quit and when i don't smoke, the desire to light up is so strong that i succumb. i've really researched this and come to the conclusion, that i just like the high smoking gives me. i don't drink, i don't do drugs.........which is saying alot from someone grown up in the 60s/70s.
i've smoked over 19 miles worth of cigarettes. if each smoke is 3 inches long, over 19 miles. i've smoked over $25,000.00 worth at a median price of $2.00/pack. and my lungs....those two charcoal looking things in my chest are still working fine...........except when i exert myself with a hike or a day of yardwork.
so here we go again. i've strapped a patch to my *** and it's off to the races again. when i put the patch on my arm, the extraction of nicotine brings pain to it. i'm not sure if it's overloading the nerves there or what, but the pain is so intense that i end up ripping it off.
another part of this great plan, is to find something to do with my mind and body. boredom is my number one reason for lighting up.
happy birthday to blue eyes
you all have a gorgeous day.
