Good TUESDAY morning, 7/13

  1. Hiya Peeps! Thought I'd get this thread started although nothing really new here.
    For lack of a better word, it's absolutely pissing down with rain here. Good day to stay inside and cuddle up with a good (?) book...in my case A&P. arrrrgggghhh
    Sometimes I feel like I have it--sometimes I don't. Sorry to keep bringing this up but it's my last hurdle before hopefully going back to school 8/24.

    Hello Suzy! I was wondering who was going to start the thread this am!

    Anatomy and Physiology will be the hardest pre req classes you have to take for nursing. I had a terrible time with Anatomy because I took it in the summer and just couldn't memorize fast enough!!! Physio was easier because I could match the stuff I memorized to concepts. I feel for you and all I can say is hang in there and keep studying (probably not what you wanted to hear...haha). Good luck with your class though.
    To everyone else, hope you have a great day. It has been sunny and hot here (not conducive to day sleeping, fans always running at my house...)

    Good morning.

    Ruthie, I'm the I'm the master at typos, so don't sweat it. (Did you know there was a handy dandy 'edit' button?)

    Agree, nuring school didn't get any harder than A&P. Good luck.

    Off to watch a movie "The Pearl Earing" or something like that.

    Tweety, is this your night off too? It's my last night off for four more days. Can't seem to study, too much on my mind.

    Tweets--I saw that movie the other day on PPV. absolutely LOVED IT!

    Morning everyone. I have been up since 4:45 but that's because we all went to bed at 5:30 last night. Trey is up with me and Bryce went back to sleep on the floor behind my chair. Piper is still out in my bed I think. Since Bry is gone, they all end up in my bed and what a concoction of arms and legs we had last night. Everyone wants to be close to me, so you can imagine how much room I get in my bed, even though it is a King. LOL!

    I refused to come on here and say anything until my essay was done so all I have to do is study for my Nutrition test tonight. I had a mental breakdown and just started sobbing this morning in fear that I am going to fail. I HATE the first assignment/test from a new prof. It is so hard to know what they expect. I went outside with a cup of coffee and spoke to God for a couple minutes. Of course, my mind wandered and I ended up reviewing Nutrition notes in my head but I hope He understands.

    Netters....I hope you find yourself again (reading what you wrote yesterday was weird...so used to the up and at 'em happy Netters...but everyone needs a time to be a little off) and I completely understand what you are saying in the PM.

    Mickie....my incision is getting better. I barely feel it this morning. It just bothers me to wear anything against it now, so I may have to wear a dress to class tonight. Hopefully, by tomorrow, the swelling will be down and I can get my regular shorts on. It's bruised pretty bad now but I am grateful that the whole thing is over. Now, on to you.......tell us, what is going on with Jason? Do I need to come knock some dang sense into him? His stressing you out is not going to make school any easier for you! Did you get my email that I sent you the other day? Whatever decision you eventually make about school, I've got your back, chick!

    Karen....how are you doing today? Are you feeling any better emotionally?

    Fairy and Suzanne...I posted yesterday about my pain. It was easier to put on this thread since you both asked. During "that time" it's harder to distinguish the menstrual pain from the pain that I have generally all the time.

    Fairy....I am glad that Abbie is doing better. Sometimes changind docs is what you have to do. We did with all three of our kids and we feel much better when taking them there. Did you get all your work done yesterday?

    Liza...did you get some new furniture? That's one way to do it...promise it to your daughter and then you can get new! LOL!

    Fran....you never came back? You feeling better today, girl?

    Suzy...still studying? Me too...my problem is that I can't seem to find quiet time to do it. I'm typing as quick as I can right now so that I can get back to the Nutrition. I won't allow myself to come back on here until I review it all at least once. All Nurses will be my "break".

    Ruthie....your A & P was split I take it? Anatomy separate from Physiology? Ours is together but two semesters.

    Tweeters....did you rent the movie? or are the theaters open all the time there?

    Hannasmom....it's so hard to study when you have a ton on your mind, huh? Going through that now myself.

    Leslie....how is Lisa doing? When do you expect news? Does Lisa know about the quilt or is it a surprise? My prof. and I decided on elderly abuse for my topic for the research paper. I ordered four books from other libraries and took two out of my own. I am also working on accessing some journals, but right now I gotta get through this Nutrition test before I can concentrate at all on the research. We get unlimited re-writes so I want to get it done in three or four weeks so that I can hand it in for his critique in plenty of time to re-write. HUSH about cutting bangs..I almost did mine the other day. I need to go catch up with Marla so she can kick my butt into shape! LOL!

    Whisper....yep, it's July but it sure doesn't act like it here either! It's either raining or cold or both! I can't remember the last time we had a nice summer....oh, yes I can...the summer I was preggo with Piper was excruciating!

    My College Comp. prof. must be rubbing off on me because I find myself watching everything I write here for mistakes. UGH! You guys don't care. I guess it's good for me, eh?

    Well, today is just studying, studying, studying...........I'll be back when I review all my notes once.

    Hugs all around.......

    Kim, you have been through alot lately. Tell me to get with it and stop being such a baby!!! LOL.

    Kim, at my school we took 5 units of anatomy (1 semester) and then 5 units of Physio (another long semester) for prereqs for the ADN program. Taking anatomy in the summer was M-Th 8-5pm. YUK ... I made it though and I am sure you will do fine on your Nutrition exam, it is so hard to get through those pre reqs, I think they make it hard on purpose so nursing school seems easier after that...kind of a pre-nursing boot camp for the brain...haha.- Ruthie

    aaarrrggghhh. Just what I need. One of my kitties caught a mouse and is running like a loon around the house with it in his mouth.

    the mouse is doomed with 5 cats in the house...stupid, stupid mouse.
    hubby just reported that Mush (the cat) has it under the daybed in my room that I use to study. Lookey mama...I brought you a pressy! grrrrrr

    My brother had a cat that use to bring a mouse and place it at the back door every few weeks. Like "Here Daddy, I brought you a present, see what a great cat I am!"

    Ugh! It is lightning here. There is a thunderstorm watch posting on the TV. Really, I kinda enjoy thunderstorms, but I like them better when my husband is awake. It's 3:43 am here.

    ahhh Kimmy...you and me both..only my mental breakdown started yesterday and I've been weepy yesterday and today. I'll keep praying if you do.

    Suzy, if anyone would understand, it would be God. Maybe he put the notes into your head.

    Can a person be online when it is lightning so close to home, without hurting my new computer? What if the lights go out suddenly. The storm is starting slowly. The lightning has gotten closer since 3:00 am. No, rain, but the air smells like rain to come.
