    Good morning Tweety and to everyone else that follows!


    I'm off to work as well. My 3rd weekend on and then I'm off next weekend. We are planning on going to Va. next weekend to check out some of the areas and get a feel as to where we want to live. We were checking out Christian schools to send the kids, and the tuition is pretty reasonable. One school starts teaching them Latin at 6th grade.....then Spanish, and Greek by the time they're in 10th grade. I had some Latin in High School.....yuk! That was one hard language to learn!

    Well, I should go eat breakfast or something, although I'm never really hungry in the morning.

    Take care, everyone!!

    The best part of my nite came a f ew minutes ago when I was reading yesterday's thread & found out that Weetzie is STAYING!! I am just so happy & excited about that that I can hardly say!! This is good news!!
    Weetzie, I just hope the job hunt goes well. Out Chicago way, we h ave TONS of jobs available!! However, I don't think you'd appreciate our climate!! Here's to You!!

    Well, I have little planned for the weekend except relaxing!! I just love my weekends off!!
    We will probably catch up on watching tapes,. Since I sleep in the evenings, DH tapes all my favorite shows!!
    Ther's LOTS of those!!

    I certainly agree with your assessment of Latin--quite HARD!!
    I had 4 yrs!!
    Have a good day!!

    First of all, thank you to everyone who wished me well a few days back in the good morning thread! I appreciated your support and kind words. I was sick yesterday - just felt like I had hit a wall, you know? I think it's purely exhaustion and stress. After sleeping most of the day, I feel much better.

    Right now, I'm baking a gigantic pineapple upside-down cake. 2 cake mixes, 3 large cans of pineapple, half a jar of cherries, lots of margarine and brown sugar! We're having a pot-luck at work tonight and this is my donation.

    After it's done baking, I'm off to bed so I can be well-rested for my 13-hour night shift. I hate daylight savings time!!!

    Mornin' y'all.

    Still up. Haven't gone to bed, Have work in about 4 hours and been up all night but somehow I'm just no sleepy.

    Tweety: Hope ya have agreat day

    JKaee : Well, learning languages earlier is easier than learnin' 'em in High School. I know 7 languages myself and most of 'em I learnt the hard way - being dumped in the middle of nowhere as a young kid! Latin is hard but not as hard as say (for example) Serbo-Croatian

    Things could be a lot worse! But the essence again - is to start them off on a new language as early as you can. I grew up with 4 languages at home - and I certainly guarantee that growing up as a toddler around that many languages makes learning languages easier later on (except in my case with one language - French. I did two years of French in High School... never freaking got the hang of it )

    Nursemary : Dang! Taht's busy! I wish I could tape my shows!

    EnNjoy your weekend!

    Gompers: Yuck! Beeing sick sucks! It's November - about my yearly "time to fall dreadfully sick and miss classes and life and barely survive" week

    Gah! I hope you feel better than you've felt so far

    Ok, I got about 4 hours before I gotta get to work - I'm gonna try sneaking in some sleep.... that is if my body (and mind) will isten that is.......

    morning, all! it'll be night for me soon. my first of 6 straight starts at 11 pm. gompers, you rat! you would remind me that i am stuck there a extra hour! at least you're having a party!

    roy, re: the languages. i speak a mix of slavic, russian, and polish. not much any more; my maternal grandma died last year. her mother was very self concious that her english wasn't too good, and my mom grew up understanding the patois. me....i picked up bits and pieces.

    the greek i picked up was dialetual. also....too long ago. geez!

    nurse mary.....i hope to make it to williamsburg, too. i just may be in "period outfit", though. i do living history (reenacting) of the french fur trade/rev. war era. kinda fun, too!

    see ya all later!

    good morning !!!

    wish i felt as frisky as the kitty up there... still trying to wipe the sleep out of my eyes. i'ts been a long week, then stayed up late last night watching the news, etc. after being up so early for work. so today will be a slovenly one. nothing plannned but a little light housecleaning, small load or two of wash, and that's it.

    i'm off for three, sounds good to me ! :d

    so the weetz is staying??? :icon_hug: fabulous !!!
    will have to go back and read yesterday's thread and catch up.

    jkaee... the school sounds great, and your children can only benefit from the learning of languages. like others here who learned additional languages
    early on, it has proven to be beneficial in more ways than one.

    and roy.. while i enjoyed the intellectually challenging aspect of learning latin, ..french was truly my favorite..i often dream in french to this day.
    still would love to learn italien.. after teaching myself spanish. hey, i've got plenty of time.. might be just the thing to do once i retire.

    sue.. i feel for ya, girl ! six in a row............. blech.

    gompers.. glad to hear you're feeling somewhat better. take care of yourself, and let that stress go ! won't help you a bit in the end, y'know?

    maryann.. enjoy your weekend off !

    tweety.. hope your work day is peacefully productive and rewarding.

    well, i'm going to get started around here.. hi to all who have posted at the same time i was (never fails) and i'll pop back in later once i have my mundane little chores out of the way and can actually relax and enjoy my day !

    later gators !

    Good morning to you all!

    My baby turns 9 today, so I've already started baking as well! I am trying to wipe the fog out of my eyes because I had six giggly 9 & 10 yr olds here last night and I don't think they fell asleep until 4 a.m. (or maybe it was just that I feel asleep then!!!)

    Have a beautiful day everyone.:hatparty:

    OK.. second load of wash is in, kitchen is cleaned up. Need to vacum and dust, clean the bathroom, then jump into the shower.

    Might go down to Pati and Roo's house later and sweep out the garage, and pick up the remaining cleaning supplies we left in there after we finished up.

    The new renters will be moving in soon, so I want to make sure everything is taken care of before they do.

    USA, Happy Birhtday to your dd ! Such a great, giggly, young age.

    Hi there Siri ! Hope your ACLS day goes by quickly, so we can have fun later this evening !

    OK.. gotta keep moving before I lose my motivation.

    Good morning!!! anyone up for some oatmeal this morning, how bout some hot chocolate or apple cider? It's cold here today!! I should be in bed cause I am working tonight but allnurses has pulled me in... aaahhh I can't ever escape!

    Tweety and Jennifer I hope work is going ok thus far... not too busy but I will not jinx you with the "q-word" either.

    Mary I hope your next night IS better you always sound so busy at work. what are your favorite shows you're going to get to watch?

    Gompers your cake sounds delicious!! are you sure you don't wanna donate a piece to the good morning thread...? I hope you are feeling really better.

    Roy I hope you do get some sleep before work!! I can understand the whole mind not letting you sleep, sometimes, it is annoying, no? 7 languages... that's awesome I don't care HOW you learned them!! I am doing good to be able to talk OK English and, well, sorta ok Spanish.

    Sue I hope you too are sleeping!! 6 straight, that's a marathon for sure. I will be there with you "in spirit" at work tonight too... unfortunately. :wink2:

    Jnette I hope relaxing and refreshing and all that is going well. all your cleaning sounds like what I need to do sometime... but HATE to do, oh well! take care anyhow!

    USA have fun with your birthday girl!! don't forget to eat some of the cake yourself! and lick the batter from the beaters and the icing from the bowl! that is my favorite part of baking.

    Siri!! hope ACLS is going well and you can rescue all those mannequins(sp?) with amazing skill!!

    Hello and have a great day too, to anyone who comes in later... I think I will go to bed here soon. take care!!
