Happy Tuesday, September 18th

  1. Guess it's up to me to start the daily thread. Good morning everyone!

    You know that point people talk about, that point everybody reaches, where they want to quit NS? I was almost there yesterday.

    Forgot an assignment, found out an oral presentation is due in a week (and our group hasn't even met yet), had the first pharm quiz (tough!), and I have to move in a week and a half. If I thought "this isn't that bad" the first week, by this second one I was asking "what did I get myself into?"

    Granted, it all seems to be working out: Did the assignment during a break in class, our group is going to meet tomorrow to work on the report (which is pretty short), got an A on the quiz, and I'm only moving across town (and it's only a one-bedroom, so I won't have much to move).

    I'm starting to realize what a big change it is being a full-time student in an accelerated program, after having been in the world of work for 10 years. Fortunately, many of my classmates feel the same, so at least I'm not alone.

    Good morning, all! :kiss

    I just came home from the health club about an hour ago. I heard through the grapevine that oil has skyrocketed to $81 per barrel, so I made a stop on the way home from the gym and filled up my Chevy Silverado pickup truck with gas.

    Take care, and have a wonderfully pleasant day!

    Another very cool start to the day here, may has well put the patio set away and hunt for the shovels! Aack!! DH comes back from Africa a week from friday for his 2 week visit, and of course I have a to do list from here probably back to africa of things he needs to get done; and he likely thinks this is going to be holiday for him. ha ha. Kids are much better now that they are back in school and in a routine, so that makes mommy dearest, moi, much better also. Tigger (my fat cat) seems to be coming around, at least the vet called yesterday to see how he fared over the weekend, makes the $1200 bill slightly easier to swallow. Today I hope to tackle the summer / winter clothes bins and take some bags to goodwill, but probably will go back to bed and take a nap! Bethin, just read your post from yesterday, sorry to hear about your accident, hope you are feeling better soon. Have a great day where ever you all are!!

    Hi, Joe, and thanks for starting the Good Morning thread.

    Sounds as if you got it together now for the assignments. Good job.

    And, good luck with your move.

    Mornin', Tammy. I'm glad Tigger is doing better. Poor thing.

    Enjoy the nap.

    morning

    just got off a very long shift where i did nothing but sit on my butt. which is good because i'm slow moving.

    i'm so excited - got gas for 2.12/gallon! yep, only 2 bucks. drive down the street and it's $3.

    not to be depressing, but commuter just reminded me of a book i just read. in it, the author delves into our relationship with the middle east and their goldmine (oil). he said, and experts agree that if oil goes near $90 a barrel that we could face another deep depression, as in 1930's deep. scary stuff. now i'm scaring myself. could you imagine what would happen if that happened today?

    and on that so very positive note, have a great day!
