    Nah, Fun - you need to run - it's fun, Fun (I LOVE to do that - ha ha ha).
    Yeh, Fun... listen to Siri... its FUN to RUN !
    Better you than me. I don't like that stuff. Too many headaches. Heh.


    OK.. first load is hung out, second ready to go.. and dug out about 20 feet of ground with a pickaxe already to bury the electrical dropcord from the basement to the fountain. Another 40 feet or so to go.... The splish splash is what's keeping me going....

    Aw heck, Roy.... most humble folk around here still hang out their wash... not 'cuz they don't have dryers.. but PREFERENCE !!!

    Nothing like seeing freshly washed clothes waving in a summer breeze on a clothesline... nothing smells as good, either. Every winter this is what I most look forward to... warming up enough to start hanging out wash again !

    And yes, Siri... have to dig down about 6-8 inches deep from fountain to basement, about 70 feet. No, ground is not too soft, actually, but not rocky, either.. more like hard clay and lots of roots. But hey... when I want something to look "perfect", no sacrifice or amount of hard labor is too great! DH has a bad back from too much golf ... not... from years of laying brick and finishing concrete...and age, of course *ahem*...

    He helped a little here and there, actually acted like he was going to do the whole thing (and probably wanted too), but I knew better... his back won't take it. Tha'ts ok. I strong like mule.

    You are a sweetie to your hubby.

    I can see you digging, tongue hanging out and all lolled to the side, sweat pouring off your brow - working for that final moment of absolute satisfaction that ya done it.

    You go girl!!

    Hey.. I'm used to it. All through my first marriage, I did LOTS of "hard labor"...... you name it, I was right there doing it. First dh wasn't having any of that "but I'm a fragile little woman" crap. :chuckle
    And I actually loved every minute of it, too. So a prissy "wuss" I am not!

    Now THIS dh likes to do the "man" stuff, and treat me like the "little woman", and it makes me crazy !

    Gimme that pickaxe, and let me have at it !!!

    Quote from LPN,RNNow
    Commuter- When I did LPN to RN, I found that all the teachers that were "trying to weed out bad nurses" had been in the first year, so I never had to deal with them. It was strictly business the second year. I hope you are able to get the classes you need.
    Update - I am so proud of myself for registering, since it has been 5 years since I last attended 'real' college. I was advised to take the math and sciences last in order to avoid having them 'age'. After all, many RN programs now require the math and sciences to be less than 5 years old.

    I registered for English, Psychology, Growth & Development, and Sociology, all of which are prerequisites or co-requisites for the local LVN-to-RN bridge programs around here. I am going to pray for a 4.0 gpa and hope that the strength and motivation is bestowed upon me in order to accomplish this.
