    Thanks for starting the thread Mary Ann!

    Hope it's a good night even if it's busy.

    My sil is having her c section on Fri. Got everything ready to go but still need to find little gifts for my nieces. I don't want them to feel left out. Sil doesn't want anyone to visit until later in the evening so she can spend alone time with my db and the babies. That's fine, but she better not come out of the hospital pregnant again!!! Her mom will be there and I hate when she's around. She has this way of making you feel inferior. And she will have her hands all over my nieces. No way.

    Today I'm going to apply at a healthcare agency so I can get some extra spending money. Then I'm going to go to the CC that I did go to to get some info on the legal assistant program. I decided that right now, that would be the least amount of stress. If I have time I might go to the zoo. It's supposed to be a little chilly, high around 55 and cloudy. Depends on how I feel.

    Mary Ann, I hope the busy-ness doesn't escalate. Thanks for starting the GM thread!

    Bethin, sounds like you have a full day planned . . . as you say, however, depending on how you feel. Good that you don't push it -- that you know when to slow down and what to do for yourself. There will be plenty of time for you to be with those babies. . you may be needed to help Kennedy and Emma over the transition from being "We're IT!" to being part of a bigger "IT." They may take awhile to adjust: little firecracker Kennedy the most. You might do a little online research on how to help them adjust after the babies come home. Kids do funny things, sometimes harmful things, not really meaning to hurt, but they need to know they're still loved as much, and there are boundaries (for safety's sake) with how the newcomers are treated. Well, you'll find all that out with time, and research. Congrats in advance, hope the two babies and mama are well!

    I took Thurs and Fri off, as my dh and kids have been off all week (I couldn't take off earlier, as two of our nurses were in New Orleans, at ACC). We're going to meet some friends at Disneyland tomorrow, after I take oldest to orthodontist for a retainer check. We haven't been in awhile, and the weather should be great; I'm looking forward to going! With some schools on Spring Break, though, the parks may be crowded. As always, we'll adjust what we do, depending on the # of peeps around.

    Ahhhhh, gotta get ready for bed. Hope you all have a good day! --- D

    G' mornin Beth, Mary and Dianah...and to everyone else,

    Dianah-I'm going to be in Orlando in May. Going to go on a cruise to the Bahamas. Didn't know people were still on Spring Break. I guess Spring Break in popular areas seem like it lasts a month .

    Bethin- I can't tell you the last time I've been to the Zoo. Probably when I was like 10. I use to go to SeaWorld (San Antonio) a lot when I was living in Texas a couple of years ago. I love animals before I wanted to be a Marine Biologist or an equestrian Vet. If I didn't get accepted to nursing school I was going to pursue Marine Biology at UNC-Wilmington but I got accepted to nursing school so that went out the window. Probably in 10 yrs I'll be going back to school trying to pursue that . You never know with me.

    Dianah: have fun at Disneyland. Never been. How's the weather? Will do some research on the internet regarding twins. Good news though: Kennedy has stopped throwing her baby down and jumping on it.

    Hi Again, Family of Peeps!!

    Well, it's a bit settled down now. I'm not Charge, so that's good. When we came, we had 1 empty but that is now filled up--not my admit this time.

    I have plenty to do, tho.

    Beth--Good Luck to Sis-in-Law & Brother.
    Hope all goes well for all of you. Your nieces, Kennedy & Emma will be needing you. I can feel you're excitment all the way thru cyberspace!!
    Sounds like you have a busy day planned. You'd better get some sleep; I hope you're feeling relatively OK.

    Di-- have a wonderful time at Disney!! I have NEVER been to any of the Disney's!! Well, maybe SOMEDAY!!! Hope you have nice days off.

    Cherish--Sounds like you, too, have great plans. have a good day!!

    When I leave here today, I'm going immediately to Beauty Shop; need a trim and also new highlights. It's been a few months now--I think it was before Christmas; I guess she might as well do my eyebrows. too, while I'm there. While I'm there, DH will do the grocery shopping. I hate doing that anyway.
    My Brother-in-law is staying with us until Friday, sometime. He came in from Virginia Wed as his Aunt Passed Away & he came for the Funeral, which will be this AM.
    I have to work thru Friday, then off the weekend.

    Sat. evening, we're having the Monthly Poker Party at our house. We're all ready for that, even have the snacks bought for that all ready.

    Well, better get back to work--I still have some computer work that's needs to be done.

    You all have a Wonderful Day
    I'll leave a bit of breakfast for you Day Folk!!

    Lots of nice fresh Joe

    good morning all.

    Bethin, best of luck to your SIL tomorrow. Mary Ann, have a nice beauty treatment; jmgrn65, poor you - migraines are Not Fun.

    Nice sunny day here today. My never-ending project has just been added to again. Ack! No matter, it's work.

    breaking news: My thumb is almost better!!! Still tender but it looks almost normal again. Woohoo!

    I'm probably going to have an orientation for home visits next Tuesday. I'll be doing PRN replacements, probably more in the summer during vacation time. I don't want too many days because I"m hoping that my projects will pick up and that will be enough.

    Shoot, I just realized, have to pay my nursing license tomorrow (deadline). I keep it to the last minute because my money stays in my pocket until it has to leave.
