    Blech, chicken flu.

    I'm trying to figure out what time it is in Africa. Haven't heard from my son yet and he has been gone a week and one day. 13 more days to go. He will probably come home telling us we just have to adopt this one special child he met.

    Toddler is asleep with daddy. 19 year old is sleeping - funny he is usually up late but started a new job bumping knots and it is hard work. Daughter is watching a movie - she just came in from walking her sheep.

    I'm sitting here by the cooler sipping a glass of wine and rejoicing in days off from work. We ate bbq chicken sandwiches, pasta pesto salad, corn on the cob. Now I'm thinking "chicken flu" . . . . .

    Looks like another sticky humid day here...temp won't be too bad..about 80 but the humidity is already 94%. Ugh. Hate it. give me a nice crisp fall day anytime!

    Good morning folks. I realize it's barely morning and still yesterday for some folks, but here I am!

    jnette I hope you're feeling better sweetie.

    nekhismom, hope you're feeling better soon. You're right it probably is stress wearing you down. Take care.

    Good news! The Dean of the nursing school wrote me that they are accepting my speech course I took at the ADN school I went to. First they declined it saying it wasn't enough hours or the right course, so I jumped through a few hoops, sent them a course description and petitioned to the Dean and they took it! So I don't have to retake Speech and I am so so so so so happy! Woot! I hated Speech with a passion. The teacher said of all the people, I had excellent speeches but never got over my extreme nervousness, whereas a lot of the others learned to relax. I hate public speaking.

    Oh and Suzanne, thanks for reminding me I have fish balls in the freezer, haven't tried them yet. LOL

    I rented a movie called "The Legend of Suriyothai" it's Thai and was under new releases at Blockbusters. Looks good, set in the 1600th century or something. Looks epic, can't wait to see it. Says Olivia Newton John is in it? Have you heard of it?

    Tweety, I hated speech too!!! I thought it was over when I got through that class but then alot of my nursing courses required presentations in front of the class. Those were better though because it was just the nursing class and I knew everyone.

    Happy Birthday JNette!!!!!! Enjoy your day. To answer your question from yesterday, my favorite parts to work are abs and the back of the legs. Especially the part where the thigh meets the butt, the "thuttocks" :chuckle

    Was going to go for a run this morning before work but decided to hold off because I'm sore from the gym yesterday. Doing yoga instead. I've got a boatload of laundry to do today and have to do my checkbook.

    Hope you all have a wonderful day.

    The one here was an all Thai cast. It was quite long and has been re-cut, that is the onw that you are talking about, but Olivia Newton-John was definitely not in it. It is 100% in Thai with English sub-titles. Fabulous movie, you will love it......................

    Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood Morning All Nurses!!! I woke up tired and cranky and am knocking it outta myself with sassiness and coffee. Ahem.....Netters.....I love you girl.....HB! Now, I'm going to sing, so everyone plug their ears:

    Happy Birthday to you
    Happy Birthday to you
    Happy Birthday dear Netters
    Happy Birthday to you ou ou ou ou ou ou.............

    Okay, done with that. I need for the rain to hold off here until about noon. Can anyone plan that for me? I have to go to the WIC office with Piper and Bryce and Bry has the car in Niagara hoof it. It'll be good for us and not too hot this morning, but rain would really put a damper on the situation! LOL! I just crack myself up!

    We have that stinkin swingset too and no time to put it up! I am thinking Bry might try to do it before he leaves for Connecticut on Sunday. Anyone near Hartford by any chance?

    Netters....sorry you had a rough day yesterday and I certainly hope that whatever it is you thought you were getting is gone and was a figment of your imagination!

    Leslie......sweets........just keep us informed as you can. If you aren't up to it, we'll be worry about you and your family. I know today is going to be rough as well and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers today.

    Tweety....that's GREAT that you don't have to take that speech class. Way to go!!!! I bet that is a huge load off your mind. If I had to take speech, I might not even have decided to go back to school. I'm good here with my chatting, but put me in front of a large group and forget it!

    WW......glad the interview seemed to go well. I will continue to say a prayer for you! it Brandy or am I confused? Anyways.....much luck with school.....what are you taking? I certainly hope you are feeling better by this's stressful enough going to school the first day, much less being sick! more day and hopefully I will be feeling better and joining you in the workouts in the next couple of weeks! I can't stand it!!! I lost three more pounds....can you imagine how I'd be doing if I was actually able to get my exercise in? you must be feeling better now? Good!!!

    Karen...glad the storms aren't affecting you! Just major cleanup now? Stay safe!

    Suzanne.....morning girl! We got that fibromyalgia book a while back but I haven't had two seconds to look at it (even on the potty) so I don't know when I'll have time to summarize it and get ideas from you about food. We had barley and grilled pork chops last night.

    (((((steph))))) You doing great mama..!!! He'll be home quicker than you think. Prayers still abound here for him!

    gotta finish this later....babe on my lap!

    Hiya Kimmy! Yes, much much better than yesterday. Thanks!

    Going to make some toast for b'fast -- trying to keep it pretty much bland this morning--although I've already had 2 cups of coffee but cann't function without that!
    How are your courses going? Nutrition is one right? I enjoyed taking Nutrition last year--found it very interesting.
