    A very good morning folks,

    Back to the "honey-do" list for me. I just finished installing 1000sqft of Pergo on my floors last week and dropped in new baseboards and door jambs. So today I get to caulk (woohoo....................not).

    Ms Kim: Thank God my toddling days are over (except for the occasional grandchild). In fact, as soon as I can get my 17yo out of the house, I'll get to experience the "empty nest syndrome". I must admit though, less heartache with toddlers than with teenagers; and as much as I hate teenagers, I've had to experience at least one in my home for the last 14 yrs (my 5 kids range from 17 to 30).

    Tweety: As a fellow noc nurse, I relate to sleeping at noc on my days off. What I do Saturday morning is go to sleep for about three hours and then I get up and am able to spend the rest of the weekend on my wife's time clock instead of my own. Come Tuesday afternoon, a three hour nap before work puts me back on my schedule for noc (four tens). Yep, my body doesnt know if it's day or noc, but I need the time with my wife and kids and enjoy the perks of noc nursing.

    I hope everyone has a beautiful day today. I'll be working around the house (I'd rather be fishing), but am going to try to get my line wet on Monday.

    Walter the Nurse

    I just got done doing some stuff. I scrubbed the office floor, did dishes, started laundry and did some "homework" with Trey. I don't even make my bed most days...who cares? we just get back into it again at night! LOL!

    ACK !!! I'm waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too anal for that ! I couldn't stand it ! (must be the ol' home upbringing thing... we had to make our beds EVERY day first thing ... without fail !) Of course the military carried on that little tradition... so it's well ingrained. My day would be RUINED if I went off knowing my bed wasn't made.... Sad, huh?

    LOL @ Jnette!!! Have you ever gotten off this thing?

    I'm gonna have to take a break again soon to feed the kiddos! LOL!
