how in the world did it get to be the 20th of may already? this summer is gonna fly and before you know it, i'll be in here complaining about how i have no time for ya'll and that my instructors are upsetting me and my other classmates are horrible, blah, blah, blah!
so, the question today is: if you are a student..what is your biggest fear? if you are a nurse who already has been through school..what was the worst part of school for you and what was the best?
my biggest fear is failure of any kind. i don't want to let anyone down, but mostly myself. i feel a certain obligation because i started this three years ago and did so well. i feel like i need to keep that up to make everyone around me proud. (i know, i know....i only have to truly worry about making myself proud) man, i'm having a heck of a time typing this morning! lol!
for those of you that think i'm so great for responding to each person...lol! i have to have two windows open and i read the thread in one while i am typing responses in another! i just don't want to miss anyone or have anyone feel left out.
so....kate, med. school huh? i think it's fabulous if you have the support in place to help you out...what does your family think? you'll do great, i'm sure! got your back here, chickie!
fran, how was your day yesterday?
diana...whenever you post is fine. i'm almost always alone here for about an hour in the am, then people start posting and it's time for me to leave! lol!
so, for me today......hmmmm....well, i have finally started printing out all my digital photos to put in my kids' scrapbook when they get older. i guess i should be making duplicates so that they each can have one, but i'm just not there yet. i have the back up disks, they can fight over the original when they get older! lol! i don't have the cash to do each one individually right now.
my arm is killing me from that stinking tetanus yesterday. i just don't like shots...don't mind giving blood but i'm not a shot person. weird, i know, but it's me! lol! the mmr isn't bothering me a bit.
gotta hug a kid....hold on.....
okay, feeling better now. gotta get in my kiddo hugs when they are still half asleep and not running from room to room yet! lol! i didn't make it on my walk yesterday but this morning, i am determined to go because i don't have so much going on. i know i have a lot of paperwork to do and i should probably dust the office while i am going through the paperwork. any of you with hard wood floors? curious as to how you clean them...what you use?
i guess that's about it for today. i have lots of catching up to do, so i'll head on out of here! oh, hey, at noon today it will have been 48 hours with no smoke, but i'm not handling it very well. i did have a butt the day before so i can't count that day. *sigh* this just stinks!
hugs all around........

Good Morning Kim.
Hey everyone how are you all today?
My biggest Fear would have to be what the heck I am going to do with all this knowledge at the end of it all. Am I going to be free to go and get a job outside of the home or is it all just going to sit in my head in case I need it in caring for DW.
Schooling and Study have always just come natural to me, so I really do not and never have had any fears there, lucky I guess.
Well my day is nearly over here. I want to mop the kitchen, laundry and bathroom before I go to bed, will do it shortly when DW goes off to bed. Dinner tonight was simple, just had Quiche and salad.
So, Recipe of the day:
CREAMY POTATO BAKE
Potatoes may be used skin-on or peeled according to preference (and condition of skin).
Slice potatoes approximately 1/8th of an inch thick (not that I would measure them).
Layer potatoes in a casserole dish up to approximately half way.
Sprinkle half a packet of french onion soup mix onto potatoes.
Sprinkle over a handful of ham or bacon (mushrooms work well for a vegetarian alternative).
Continue to layer potatoes till the casserole dish is almost full.
Sprinkle over the other half of the french onion mix.
Gently pour 1/2 pint(300 ml) of cream evenly over the top of the potatoes.
Top with grated cheese.
Cook in a 400f oven for approximately 1 hour(till potatoes are soft)
Delicious with green beans and corn on the cob.
Hope you all have a wonderful day.
Fran and WW, hope you are feeling better today, prayers are with you both.

Good morning Kim.
I was always a good student, so I wasn't afraid of failing. But the clinicals at first were horribly intimidating. For me the first rotation was the worst because I had no experience like the rest of the people in my group. I made pizzas for a living, everyone else was a CNA or an LPN. But the worst part was having to work almost full-time and the horrible fatigue I had and the tediousness of those freakin' care plans
we had to make for clinicals. We had no internet back then, and had to look everything up in books, hand write them, plus hand write all the meds, etc. etc. It was so frustrating.
You will do just fine.
