    Grace I hope dh surgery goes well.
    It is funny how your day is just beginning and ours is coming to an end. I will be going to bed in about an hour.

    Good morning to you Gracie. I certainly hope your dh's procedure goes well.

    I've been home from my evening algebra class for over and hour now; lots of homework to do until next class on Thursday eve. Fred made soup and grilled sandwichwes for dinner and they were splendid. He used a very dense sourdough bread he bought at a local farmers market that we'd kept in the freezer. Just a nice, comfort food kind of night. And I have so much work to do! But maybe not tonight... maybe he should be rewarded first... nothing else to say about that, y'all!

    You all be blessed! Peace and love to you all!

    Healing thoughts and prayers for your dh Grace. Enjoy your quiet time.
    Awww Siri, reality is no fun.
    sweet dreams jmg.
    MMMM Don the dinner sounds good. Algebra...not so great. Oh well, gotta do what we gotta do, huh?
    Not much going on here, trying to get used to this cooler weather, not liking it just trying to get used to it. We had our first frost this morning. IT warmed up beautifully, hopefully tommorrow will be just as nice. I am currently trying to convince the little man that he is sleepy, he isn't buying it for a minute.

    Good Morning folks!

    Yesterday was my first day on the floor - kinda busy!

    I'm off today - but I start again tomorrow... clear through Friday. My Preceptor seems confident enough to assign a patient all to myself!

    Will I be able to do it?!!

    I've been a tad bit tardy off late with my song for the day posts! So today, it's a little extra special.

    Two artists and two songs very close to me. Very special stuff.

    Song of the day #1
    Song of the day #2

    It's getting rarer and rarer to find their work these days
    Hope you all have a great day!

    Good morning Grace. I'll be keeping you and DH in my thoughts and prayers.
    Good evening to the rest in my reality. Going to bed now. Nighty night.

    Grace!! Warm, healing thoughts going out for your dh! I hope both the surgery and recovery are smooth. Thank you for starting the GM thread (I've missed you starting the thread!)!

    Roy, I watched the cruising video and realized the driver is on the "wrong" side of the road, lol! Yes, I did notice the signage painted on the road was characters, too! Interesting scenery (I love seeing other areas/cultures). Thanks for the links you give! and thanks for the updates re: your work. Hope you're enjoying it (I'm sure you're tired, though, after all that learnin'!).

    Don, dinner sounds great (and fattening!!! ), thank Fred for me.

    I'm just winding down (have to pick up youngest ds soon, from Police Explorers' meeting), and then going to bed. I made soup, but I'm not sure I'm gonna like it, as I think I put too much flavoring in the broth, and it's too salty . . . we'll see. It was an experiment.

    Y'all have a good day! --- D

    Well, it's officially morning on the East Coast of the USA. Just got in from bowling and had a light snack and getting ready for bed.

    Good luck to the husband Grace.

    I'll say good morning again tomorrow.

    Good morning!

    Grace, I hope everything goes well for your husband.

    I will try again to go to the gym. Didn't make it yesterday. Might go hiking today instead of going to the gym. I hate the outdoors but it's on my New Years Resolution list - do something weekly that I hate or fear. So far I've jumped into a 7' pool when I can't swim (I had a belt on). I changed the oil in my car. I worked extra shifts (something I despise). I've become more assertive, something I fear because women who are assertive are often conceived as being b******.

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Well it is really morning now for me.
    I did have a good sleep, didn't wake up at all during the night and I am usually up at least twice.
    It is a work day for me today.
    Roy you will do great.
