Good Sunday Morning 5/9/04

  1. Good morning everyone. How are you all doing this fine morning? I was doing okay, until I had this almost done and my computer locked up and shut down. :angryfire So, I'll try to remember what I said....Bryce is sleeping really well at night (although in our bed of course) and I only have to make him one bottle during the night, usually well towards morning. Now, if I could get myself into bed soon after the kiddos, I'd be getting great sleep! The problem right now is that my meds. are making me really tired around 3 pm and I end up dozing on and off then by bedtime, I'm wide awake. So, the question for today is: What is your bedtime? Do you have a regular one or does it depend on what is going on? Do you ever doze or take naps during the day?

    Bryan has to work today so there isn't much happening around here. I am going to get the house cleaned up, get the kids to make some cards for loved ones and then go to my Aunt's house for supper. I don't like Mother's day very much. Bryan always has to work and it makes me miss my mom and wish she could've been a real mom. Ah well.....I've always got my Aunt and she has been more of a mom to me in the last few years than mine ever was. I'm grateful for that.

    Man, I just end up rambling here in the morning, don't I? LOL ... Maybe I shouldn't be "Lola" maybe I should be "the rambler".

    That's long tirade today!

    Hugs all around....

    Good morning Kim.

    Not much going on here, thinking of going back to bed for a nap. Took the dog for a long power walk at 5:00 and watched the sunrise, it was nice. But now that the suns up, my body thinks it's time to sleep.

    Saw Helsing (sp?) last night, about vampires, etc. Spouse really wanted to see it so drug three of us there. It was o.k., but not my thing. If you like vampires, action and special effects it's good. The acting was dreadful, but it's not meant to be Shakespear.

    Everyone have a good day! Woot!

    Tweety...I probably wouldn't have enjoyed the movie much either. Maybe a few years ago, but I'm more into dramas and true stories now. A sign of my old age, I guess! LOL!

    Have a good nap and a great day!

    I'm just working on my first cup of Joe. Beautiful morning here with mega hummingbirds buzzing around. Robin bought 2 more feeders so we can keep up with them. Last year they were drinking a gallon a week, especially after the babys hatch out.
    Today, kids are making mom breakfast, then we are going for a picnic lunch by the river where they can fish. Robin wants to ride the bike so we'll meet them down there.
    Should be a great day.

    Good Morning everyone!!!!

    Just woke up after a night of celebrating with friends. We all graduated yesterday and got pinned friday night. Wow, what an experience. I can't believe its all over and now in a month or so, I'll be an RN. College went by sooo fast. My family came up as well as my 2 grandmothers, we had such a nice visit. I was able to give them their mothers day gifts yesterday since I can't see them today. My mom told me that during commencement my dad was kind of sniffling and holding back tears and that almost made me cry. Just hearing my parents telling me how proud they are of me made me feel absolutely wonderful!!!! I am so lucky to have a sound support system in my family.

    Today I plan on cleaning my room really well, washing my car, and cleaning out the inside of it. I guess I will use today to get organized for the week!!! This week I start my NCLEX review course for the next couple of weeks and I will also be teching 7p-7a 3 nights a week on the floor I will be working on. Well hope to hear from other people about their plans for the day, and HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all of the fabulous mommies out there!!! Take care,

    Mornin' all!
    We all slept in, in fact the kids are still asleep (sleeping "in" till 7:30 is what I mean! )
    Tweety, the kids (13 and 14 1/2) want to see Van Helsing today. As they're not critics and do enjoy action, adventure and CGSE, as well as fantasy, I may take them (but I don't really want to see it, from reviews I've read, including yours). We thought Disneyland, even for a few hours today, might be a bit much on a routine weekend (no Monday holiday with which to recuperate).

    Today will be laundry, groceries, etc. I take my Mother's Day in bits and pieces throughout the year, so if no one has a big deal planned for today, it's OK with me. I WOULD like to get a few more plants for the front yard, next to the garage, it's looking a little bare in spots. Maybe I'll cruise thru Lowe's or Home Depot . . .

    Nurseunderwater, I hope your youngest is better soon.

    Rusty, it sounds like a great day at the river! And we too have birds: loads of sparrows, finches and even mourning doves at our little feeder and fountain. I have seen hummingbirds bathing at the fountain, too. We love watching them scramble for the best spots on the feeder. The cats love watching them too . (they're all indoor cats, so they only dream of getting a bird!) But a gallon a week of hummingbird syrup -- W O W!!

    Bedtime?? Me, usually 11:00, although I constantly try for earlier. I'll nap on the weekend, maybe. Even 20 min is delicious!

    WOOT! Congrats, Nursekatydid!! One of life's milestones!! Good for you!

    A good day to all!
