    good morning folks,

    just got back from seattle a bit ago. had a fantastic time. weather warm and sunny. made good time driving too, though once in the city i just pulled my jacket over my head and prayed! luckily dh was driving. did lots of sightseeing, ate delicious food (had a salmon lox and cream cheese omelette this morning that was the best omelette i've ever eaten), and walked all over town, including the hills. sheesh! didn't know there were hills like that outside san francisco!

    read through the weekend threads and tried to remember everyone, but better not try to name y'all cause my brain would surely fail.

    tweety, your new user name threw me for a minute. hope you are sleeping! the pits switching internal clocks around isn't it?

    roy, o.k. - i wanna hear more about your brother's matrimonial ad. any answers yet?? do you get to help choose?

    am now going to sit down and read for a bit before sleep. trying very hard not to think about the fact that i have sooooo much to do in the next three days.

    see y'all later -

    Good morning!

    Had a great dinner with friends, went to a fancy seafood restaurant to celebrate someone's birthday. Spouse and I spent $55.00 for dinner for two which wasn't bad, but added to the $60.00 we spent the other day, my vacation fund is rapidly being depleted and we haven't even gotten to South Beach yet.

    Sleeping at night and being up during the day is fun. I'm still having a hard time sleeping, but it was a big mistake to think the dogs are quieter at night....they aren't, one is constantly getting up and up.'s a shame to still be so fatigued, but I'll get there, and there's nothing I can do about the the dogs, I'm not about to crate them away from me at night.

    So today, I'm going to get a new passenger mirror put on my car to replace the one I knocked off several months ago, do some shopping, bathe the dogs and clip their nails to get them ready for the "resort" they are staying while we're in Miami, and of course Chemistry.

    Hi PresC! Peanut butter and mango, two of my favorite foods!

    Welcome back Weetzie.

    Sleep weel those on the West Coast!

    had a wonderful sleep last night. it rained and is still rather drizzly out there now. my last day off today.. guess i need to iron some uniforms, do a last load of wash, and get some bills out in the mail. such an exciting life i lead.
    that's ok.. i like mellow. :d

    well, let me go check the rest of the threads... hope you all have a wonderful day.

    One more night and I am off for 4 days! The bad part is that she scheduled me 2 weekends in a row, basically swapping my weekend without asking, and I am not sure how or why that decision was made, but I hear from my co-workers that it is common for some people to get screwed on their schedule while others get a nice set one with no problem. :angryfire
    Oh well, once I am there 6 months I can apply for a position at the main hospital that owns our little shack in the hills.

    Happy Monday and I hope you all have a great one!

    Good morning all! This will be quick (for me). Stormed last night. Dbf and I talked about going and looking at rings. He still has to talk to my dad :uhoh21: ha!
    Don't know about walkign today. I think it's still raining, but should be pretty by the time we're both home. Total weight loss is 3lbs. I've been going to and I have registered for their self challenge. You can record how much you're working out, and it calculates the calories burned for your size. If you feel up to doing this also (you get entered for cool prizes) PM me with email. If I refer so many people, I get entered extra for prizes. Finally got a flight schedule for when I got to Kansas, the day before Easter. I am so excited about seeing my nephew Adam. Does anyone live out there? I was looking forward to seeing a tornado (HA!), but sis says it isn't tornado season yet. I will miss dbf. I need to figure a place to hide an Easter basket so he can't find it until Sunday morning.

    Jnette- Seattle is a great place. If you son is going to re-enlist, see if he can get stationed in Bremerton. It's across the sound from Seattle. Lots of navy bases there. That's where my sis and her dh were before going to Kansas.
    Mary- Breakfast sounds yummy. Glad you're off work.
    Tweety- That doesn't seem like much for a great dinner. Won't take much to save that back up. We're got a change jar that's barely full but has lots of money in it!
    Weetzie- Isn't Seattle just awesome!!! I love going to Pike Place Market! I miss it up there. This time of year it's so pretty with tulips and lavendar. We drove up towards the Canada border and there were fields with lavendar everywhere! If cost of living wasn't so high, I would move out there. Might do traveling one day with dbf and go out there.

    Steph- We're going to see Hitch today, I think.
    PresC- Morning back to ya.
    Morning to everyone else. Have a good one. Will check back this afternoon after class. -Andrea

    wheez that time in seattle sounded great..i have never been there, i have a g-dtr who lives there but i haven't been to visit since they have been there
    susan, talk in non confrontational way about time when they are making out schedules maybe they will remember you worked assignments but that you need a w/e off too...if it doesn't sink in you will only have lost a couple of minutes [while you were on the clock anyway]
    tweety just talking about a seafood res makes my mouth water...i love it all excapt oysters..
    susie, prec, steph kay dixie jnette enjoy the day

    Saw "Hitch" last week. The first movie in about 8 months at the theater and haven't laughed that hard in a very long time. The one-liners were just great.......Highly recommend it................

    Haircut scheduled for later today and shoe shopping. Haven't bought shoes in the US in years, so this will be an experience. So used to designing just what I need and having them made.....

    Talk to all of you later..............
