    Yep.. just had a few.. and ONE of them was Adam's! Accidently opened it thinking it was my cable bill, and it was his Verizon telephone bill. I emailed him and asked if he wanted me to pay it with one of his checks he left me, or if he has it taken care of already. Seems to me he said all his bills have been prepaid , so thought I'd better check.

    He has taken another turn in his career choice. Said he investigated a little deeper into the microbiologist idea, and decided the $$ wasn't as good as he had expected once he graduated... the return on his investment in time and schooling wasn't profitable enough.
    So he did a bit more research and since he's determined to stay in the health and sciences, he's now thinking optometrist. Said it's about the same amount of schooling, but feels he could raise a family and live more comfortably on that.. plus he finds it quite interesting. If memory serves me correctly, he had mentioned that a few years back, interestingly enough.

    I'm just glad he's thinking ahead and planning for his future, and is willing to invest the time and $$ necessary to make a decent life and future for himself and his someday family.

    Sounds like he really wants a family, too. My little Beavis & Butthead guy is sure growing up! A few years back he'd have laughed you out of the room had you mentioned having a "family" to him. Wow. Makes me kinda teary eyed. *sigh*

    good afternoon to all!! looks like we've had some real chatty ones here today. also seems that someone is spending alot of time on youtube providing us with entertainment. that baby with the contagious laughter........simply adorable. just make you want to laugh right along.

    it's cold here. no snow yet, but there are some mighty dark clouds out there and very windy. it's supposed to get colder throughout the afternoon.
    went to church this morning and then my dh took me out for lunch. that was a wonderful idea that i had. he seemed to like it too (especially when i told him that the maid had taken the day off.)

    i've got to head back to church in a little while for a meeting. hope i can stay awake. i don't know why, but i just get so sleepy on sunday afternoon.

    Hi Siri!! Are you having a good day? Your supper will be late, but you'll be good and hungry by then. YOu might just have to have a little snack before then.

    I think I'll eat food for a change, tn. But, that choc does sound good.

    The piccy, however, is a turn off. hahahahha

    ... I did get to bed by 6 p.m. though. I was up at 12:30 a.m. dosing my son with ibuprofen though - hot little devil. Coughing. Stuffy... right now I'm the OB nurse and the ER nurse. Fortunately she is only 4 cm and ambulating in the hall and there are no ER pts.
    steph
    I hear someone can go from 4 to 10 quite quickly especially when ambulating!! Yeeks! But you sound pretty calm about it.

    So sorry about your wee one You and hubby staying well?
