    Good morning. Well, not really. I have been in such a funk recently. Right now I hate my job, I hate working nights, and I am stressed out about starting grad school and getting married within 2 weeks of each other this Fall. Sorry, I just had to vent. I need to change my attitude, I know, but it is hard. I hope things are going well with everyone else!

    Good sunny and happy day to everyone.

    New grad: If you don't like your job, can't you do anyhting about it?
    There must be a million positions open where you will find a good fit, then you will know it...............not all people are cut out for working nights............

    Leslie: How are htings going with you, sorry that I haven't been around much lately. How is everything going with your family? Haven't had much time to even read much, just manage to get to the International forum, if nothing else.

    Karen G: Good morning,you should be beginning your day around now, at least the sun should be shining.

    Have to go and meet Marie, can't believe that she is already flying home on a 6 am flight on Saturday.................

    Have a great day....................

    Good Morning! It's 3:20 am here, just finished the admit on my first ER patient in a week. (I work in a really small hospital). Am now trying to figure out what I need to do tomorrow. Today is my Friday after a three day stretch, don't have to be back for a week. Having a new dishwasher delivered today, the one in our house was ancient beyond repair when we moved in. Yay no more doing dishes by hand....:hatparty: Hope everyone makes it through their day, regardless of funerals (my condolances) bad jobs and stressful weddings (my sympathy- I just left a bad job and got married last September, I know how stressful it is.) Lots of smiles for everyone else!

    morning everyone. i went to sleep last night with a resolve that i am just going to do everything on my own. i have been and i will continue to do so. i said a prayer for god to help me decide what to do and nothing has changed since last night. i am anxious to see how bry wakes up this morning and if he once again sweeps everything under the carpet like my concerns just don't matter.

    i am going to call our county bus system today to find out what i have to do to get to school on mon/wed and hopefully i'll meet someone there who can give me a ride after a day or two. i will ask steph to drive me to nutrition until i can find someone who lives closer to drive me.

    bryan came home and told me that they had come to a solution about the vehicle, but it is one that we are going to be lucky to have resolved by the time the fall session starts. it has to be resolved by then because i am not taking two little kids on the bus at 7 am to go to daycare all day and then have to be bussed home at 5 pm. our "conversation" did not go well and i went over to my aunt's house to talk things out. i've had it. i'm on my own. now, i just wish he would go stay with his mom and i could get help buying a car. no, i guess i don't mean that, but if he isn't really going to be "here" and share in the responsibilites, etc. then why bother even living here. kwim? it's like he feels like he makes the money so that's enough.

    nekhismom.......i'm so sad for you that your situation has not only not improved, but has gotten worse. i wish i could just trade you houses (though you'd have to take the husband too!) you'd have it made around here with the hospital and the school (though it's just a cc) because they will do anything to work around your schedule. i wish you the best of luck in figuring out what to do., you guys keep making me cry! thank you so much for the prayers. between a night's sleep and prayers, i have just decided to do things on my own. i'm not going to get any help by nagging. i just don't know how i am going to have the surgery. i may have to cancel it.

    eastcoast and tigger.....welcome to the thread. just jump right on in whenever you want! you work in a dr. office?

    leslie.....who died? no one in your family i hope? come back here and play right now! lol!'ve been missed and i would have treasured your words of wisdom with all my "issues" yesterday! lol! glad you are having a good time, but time sure does fly when you have someone there that you haven't seen in a while, huh?

    alright, enough of this downer stuff........i get to pick up the kids' pictures today and i'll be sending out a bunch of mail to people here, so be watching! i'm gonna spend some time outside with trey and piper and then we have to go meet a potential sitter at 3 pm, but i am leaning more towards sending trey to the y if they have a program on snowdays too. i know for a fact that they bus kids to the y and i don't know if they will bus him to the sitters, so...........i'm going with the easiest solution for now.

    what's on the agenda for everyone today? qod: what are your favorite words of wisdom or favorite saying? mine is "god never gives us more than we can handle." i believe that and that's why i know everything will be okay.

    it looks like it is going to be a beautiful sunshiny day out there today so i plan on enjoying it with the kids while bry works on taxes with bryce. i want to thank you all once again for all your support yesterday. if i didn't have you guys, i wouldn't have much of anyone!!! love you!!

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

    Good morning everyone! I don't have to be to work till 9:00 today which is awesome. I got up early and did my Thursday run and already had breakfast. Cracked the whip with my kids and got them to make their beds and start laundry and put the dishes in the dishwasher away. Now they can't "forget" when they go off on their bikes.

    I have been finding my job boring lately because right now all I can do is sit and observe what everyone else is doing. I'm trying to learn the circulator's role right now. My big challenge is going to be learning where the heck all the supplies are. I'm hoping they'll let me do inventory, that's a good way to learn where everything is. Also hoping to be able to put together instrument packets so I'll be better at identifying them.

    Can't wait till the weekend! Three days off because of the holiday. Yee Haw. :hatparty:
