    I wouldn't say I was already up, I have been up. Finishing up my 3rd 12-hour night shift in a row. One more holiday down the tubes!

    I took your advice and slathered on a whole tub of lard onto these ol' parchy legs last night... now Chelsie is as fat as a butterball this morning.

    [font=Comic Sans MS]Yuppers...I'm up waiting for my 1st cuppa to brew. The last couple of months I got myself into this (nasty) habit of getting up early and studying for my summer courses..usually cos I couldn't sleep anyway worrying about them. Well now I've finished sociology & micro and have to concentrate on finishing up physiology but I'm not studying yet...I'm on here instead! I need this place! :chuckle
    [font=Comic Sans MS]Yesterday was a total washout. The heavens just opened up and the rain and wind came--but the Bristol parade still went on. Ended up not going cos I happened to oversleep yesterday. Just as well. Watched some of it on TV anyway.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]Today is already humid. Cannot stand the humidity. everything feels/is wet. Ugh.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]I'll make some rounds on the board and stop back in a bit.

    [font=Comic Sans MS]Good morning to everyone! Hugzzz all around.

    hi momma............so does this mean you're taking 3 accelerated, heavy duty condensed courses? cup of coffee sounds wonderful right now but i'm afraid it would keep me awake... ...it's very humid here in boston, too...ugh.

    Yes and no. the sociology & micro were condensed courses -- started in May and just finished them last week. The physiology is a retake cos I didn't pass that one last semester and all of the phys courses were booked in the area so I'm taking phys via an online course. I had a horrid instructor for phys--he didn't explain anything--just threw words at us and expected us to know/understand. Wonderful person but horrid teacher. As opposed to my micro teacher who explained everything and I actually learned from him. I wish I had had him for my physiology course. arrrggghhh
    Well, I'm now on my 2nd cup and haven't done any reading yet. Yes, I know Jnette is going to slap me silly but I just gotta wake up a bit more and watch the news on tv and such but I'll get cracking soon...I promise! *whimper*.
    Even my textbooks are wet. Yuch. I hate this. I'll also have to rewash the towels today as they are not drying fully and getting to be a bit sour smelling. Nice, huh? :chuckle

    Hiya Jnette. I've cleaned the kitchen--esp the cooktop as it was full of grease and such and can't stand that. And in this humid weather, everything to me feels dirty. I have the bathroom rugs in the washing machine and will tackle cleaning of the bathrooms (3!) before I shower (excellent idea don't you think?) and crack my books.

    Felt bad about the parade goers and participants yesterday. Still it was a decent crowd but they looked quite miserable.

    Morning, jnette! Just enjoying the early morning "cool" before it gets all hot and humid again. We need to get our AC serviced, and I really don't feel like paying a high electric bill, so we've been suffering thru it!

    Gosh, I could use some coffee right now.

    My hubby took the 2 youngest kids to West Va. to visit family on Saturday, and I'm expecting him home today......not that he CALLS me or anything since Sat. afternoon, and you don't get cell phone service way out in the mountains. He drives me batty sometimes!

    So, it's just been me and my 10 year old, and we've had fun going to carnivals, going out to eat, and just bumming around. But, it's back to the grind today, I've lazed around long enough!!

    Got an OB appt. this morning, then it's off to finish some wash and do some general cleaning, but I think I'll enjoy some more of the morning before I get started!

    Suzy.......uggh, I rememer anatomy and physiology.....I truly thing that was the most difficult class in all of nursing school, but you'll get thru it and do fine. I used to do what you do, studying any chance I could; with kids you never know when that's going to be, so I was either up late or early! Good luck to you!

    Good morning to everyone else, and I'll talk to you later!

    ahem, good morning. man, am i beat! these kids gotta learn to stay in their own beds! trey wanted to use his leap pad next to me while i was studying so that didn't make for very good reading. i finally left him in the bedroom with bry and went out to the living room to finish reading. we are going to have to make some house rules around here if i'm gonna make it with any sanity left. i'm really glad i'm taking these two courses to get them used to the idea of school.

    ww....good for you with the writing. i can tell that your attitude is changing and that's fabulous!!! good luck with the interview!

    netters....about my mil, in all honesty, i think she is feeling guilty because she knows that she didn't pay any attention to bryce when he was born. that's okay, i'll take it. but i would so much like a nice long non-judgmental talk instead, ya know?

    fran....no dang it, i didn't delete my cookies, but i did clean out the temporary files because i was having trouble with my hard drive telling me i was full. again, i can't remember how to delete the dang things, so i guess i'll just be animationless! lol!

    jennifer......it sounds like you and your 10 year old are really enjoying yourselves. it's really good if you get special time with each one once in a while. we really try but it's so darn hard to fit everything in with everyone and then someone always feels left out. it worked out better with just two kids here!

    suzy......did you get to that studying yet? you better not answer this......you should be off doing your thing! lol! (i'm one to talk!)

    leslie.....did you ever get any sleep last night, you silly girl? i'm sure you are snoozing now!

    melissa.....so, patience may be all you need with work, huh? unless of course you have your heart set on moving on soon......

    nekhismom....thanks again! what classes are you registering for?

    mickie....i have every intention of sitting down with your email and answering it. i haven't even checked my email in two days! lol! i have time today though with not too much to do around here so i am making a concerted effort to get to your email. how are things going there today?

    diana....i'm so glad you had a good time at disneyland. i have never been there...only the world in florida and not recently. and taco bell........yummmmmmmmmmmmmy!! you are very right about the kids thing. i had a huge shower for trey, a small shower for piper and no one gave two whips about bryce. i just feel bad for him that it seems as though he was never acknowledged, though he'll never know that, except in pictures. we give him enough love that it shouldn't make a bit of difference to him what happened when he was born.

    i did get the "guilt trip" for not calling the hospital (i sent gifts) but i am not allowing myself to get close to a baby that may or may not end up really being a part of our family. we never, ever see morgan (the four year old granddaughter) so what's to make us think we would see this one? i feel badly for the little guy, but honestly, he'll never miss me. maybe bry, but not me. bryan has to make his own decisions regarding this situation.

    bry did remember my birthday at about 6 pm after he was home a bit. no card even. *sigh* i know that we agreed there is no money for presents, but a card would have been nice. ah well.......c'est la vie!

    so today is making a couple phone calls, cleaning bryce's highchair, reading my last chapter, trying to get everyone (including me) to take a nap this afternoon, laundry, dishes, picking up and some paperwork and bills..blech!!!!

    it's not a rough day though, other than being sleep deprived.

    thank you all sooo much for yesterday...you made my day.

    hugs all around..........

    Good morning all... About to head to school. No classes today, just gotta buy my books and be ready to start tomorrow.

    We shot fireworks here with the kids last night. Now I'm limping! I was bare footed and one of the tiny sparks landed right where I decided to step... burned a little blister on the bottom of my foot! Yeah, my true blonde roots were showing.... :chuckle

    Anyway... kids are already up and fighting... another day ... but, nothing I won't live thru. Just sure do hate going to spend 200.00 on books I'll need for three weeks.

    Mickie...I hear ya with the books, girlie!!! Mine were $150.00 because they didn't have any used ones. Luckily, I think I will probably keep both of them and refer to them often. Actually, I have kept all my books so far....I'm a book junkie! LOL!

    I sure hope your foot feels better quick chick!!!
