    Angie,
    Thanks for the breakfast!!
    I think I'll help myself to poached eggs, some dry toast & maybe some fresh fruit & coffee.

    Great going in the Grades--both you and Tweety are doing great!!:hatparty:

    My nite has been so-so.:stone

    Our pharmacy is soooooooooooooooo slow.:angryfire

    Good morning all!!

    Angie and Tweedy, congrats on the great grades!!

    DH's grandmother passed away yesterday afternoon, we have the visitation on Thursday and funeral on Friday. It really was a blessing and I'm glad it's over for her. My mil told me she had 48 great grandchildren!! We couldn't get together for Christmas because of the weather, so I guess the funeral will be the time for us to remember and see relatives that we don't see everyday. Most of her family does live in the area, there are a few out of state.

    I have a busy day at work, several homecare pts to see. So I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!!

    Good morning all!

    Congratulations Tweety and Angie on the excellent grades!:hatparty:

    phn92- I'm sorry for your loss.

    Mary- HI! I hope your day is improving.

    My daughter Abby is home with a fever. Poor thing. I really don't have a lot of plans today. I am semi-nervous about tomorrow. We start clinicals! :hatparty: I have to iron my uniform and reaarange all my stuff a million times and then do it all again. I also get an extra day of school this week and next week to make up for our snow days from last week. Kewl! :chuckle I am just so anxious to get back to school and start learning again. I feel like my brain has gone to mush. Of course, I could have done more advanced studying for Pharmacology but I stopped after 4 chapters. I figured that it was a good start. Have a great day everyone!

    Mary Ann, thanks for the java. I need my 2 cups to get me going!
    Angie, thanks for breakfast! Man, I just LOVE hash browns!

    My DD is also selling GS cookies. As of this moment, she's sold 65 boxes. We need to hit up a relative or two yet. Gosh, how did your daughter get so many sold so quickly? By the way, congrats on your A's last week!

    Tweety, kudos on doing so well last week. Now, no one can tell you that you can't do anything right! You've just proven them wrong!

    phn92-sorry to hear of your loss.

    Lisa, bless you & your daughter's heart. I hate it when my girl is sick. Sounds like you're making excellent use of your "down time." Well done!

    Hi Chatsdale! hope you have a good day too!

    My DD takes her first tae kwan do class tonight, to see if she's going to like it. If she does, we'll both take it for 3 months (parents are free for the 1st three months). Work itsn't too bad today. Our state's Governor announced major changes to the state-funded health program. This will have a great impact on our facility. We are a public hospital that provides the "safety net" for our region. We are also a teaching hospital. 46 people were either reassigned or laid off Christmas week. Everyone around here is a bit edgy, as you might imagine. Staying calm, though, as there's not anything to be done about the situation.

    later y'all!

    Good morning all. The skies have opened up with a vengence and they don't seem to have any intention of stopping soon. As you can imagine, the roads are a royal mess. My Mom has been visiting since Christmas and I think we've had 3 or 4 dry days since she's arrived. Wouldn't you know, the forecast is for sunshine NEXT week? Guess I'll just have some coffee from the breakfast buffet... haven't fallen off the diet wagon...yet!

    Phn--My deepest sympathy to you and your family. What a Wonderful accomplishment in life--48 great-grandchildren!! My prayers to the entire family.

    Tweety, I have turned in several assignments, plus completed my first quiz and we haven't received any grades on anything as yet.

    I keep checking, but nothing....

    Half way done with Unit 2 Microbiology Objectives, they are due by Wednesday. Then onto the discussion board and the lab assignment.

    I go back to work tonight, after really messing up my sleep schedule, but it's only for two days then two days off, then back to my regular 4 on 2 off schedule. I work this weekend, but for some reason I like working the weekends. To me my ideal schedule would be Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sunday night shifts with Mon, Tues and Wed off. Maybe when I'm in the LPN to RN program I can work something out with the Staff Scheduler.

    Well, back to my school work.

    Have a great day everyone!!!!
