    He'll learn the rules at your house, applied as consistantly as you're describing. (I can only hope to be as consistant, -- we're all only human!!) He'll learn consequences of his actions AND unconditional love.

    I only have 15 more minutes on this thread.......................

    But I went for my first day on my new job and think I am going to LOVE it.......
    It's a VA home, they have such a neat way of doing things..........
    Resident's are called "neighbors" the units are named by streets, the medroom is called the pharmacy, the dirty utility is called the "drycleaners" etc.....
    The Administrator is so enthused about his job, and is very peppy. Of all of the nursing homes I have worked at, this sounds like it is gonna be the best by far...I'm so excited :hatparty:

    My fave childhood memory is playing hide and go seek (Apple crisp, Pumpkin Pie if your not ready holler I) or Flashlight tag
    Picinics at Devil's backbone, or swimming at Arrowrock

    Hey guys........took the boys to the beach today to clean out their snotty noses with ocean water and fresh air. It's my perscription for all that ails us Even helped my mood which was particularly foul this morning ....

    My favorite childhood memory....I don't have many...most of what I recall I have seen in photos or heard over and over again in stories from my dad.

    I would have to say though that they probably involve the summer of 69 - the song Spill the Wine by War and the shore in NJ. I still love the song and like I said, sun and saltwater are still a balm to my soul.

    Class started tonight...I have a great teacher and am so glad to finally be on my way. Shawn (dh) put my app in at the hospital and I am going to call tomorrow and see what's what. It's a position on a urology/ortho floor in a huge ca hospital here in Houston. Light some candles for me please....

    LPN - the new job sounds awesome! keep us posted about how things work out for you there. I swear co-workers attitudes make or break a job for me. Sounds like you've got a winner

    all other lovies....gnight and I'll see you tomorrow

    Their mission statement is, it is our responsiblity "To give the veterans something to wake up for, and something to dream about at noc." I thought that was such a great way to put it, after all that is what we are here for in a nutshell

    Jnette, that's absolutely gorgeous. Ya know, you must be one smart cookie, because you write so descriptively, and your spelling is always correct. You have an excellent command of the English language.

    Wow, Laughingfairy.... I love it !!! Lucky you.

    I missed out on all that wholesome innocence.. in the military we had no "country living", but as far back as I can remember I had a yearning for that simpler, wholesome life... and all of God's critters and the beauty of nature surrounding me.
    It wasn't 'til I married and my first DH took me to his home in Ct. where we built a house and had an acre or two of land that I finally got to try my hand at things like gardening, canning, a cow or two, chickens, ducks.. and all the things I loved. I still love it to this day and wouldn't live any other way. Raised my kids that way, and while I now live in a more residential area, and no longer have a farm, I still have my garden and nature's delights all around me.
    Yep! And even an outhouse with flowers planted around it. :chuckle I cuoldn't resist the temptation, Jnette. Hee hee.

    Not smart, Fran... just PICKY ( aka anal!)

    If I have to hurry here, you'll note some typos.. but I usually proof read, 'cuz I just can't STAND it when I misspell....

    But thank you for your kind words...:kiss

    Morning everyone. Can u believe it's JUNE already?

    Ok for those interested,I have a QUESTION OF THE DAY:

    What is your FAVORITE summertime memory as a kid? (a country time commercial got me thinking).

    ***My favorite memories revolve around our vacations on the lakes in Minnesota with the family---- Gramma and Grampa would go, too. Gramps was the one who taught me to fish as a 5 year old girl. "BAIT YOUR OWN HOOK IF YOU WANT TO FISH WITH ME, NO GETTING SQUEAMISH ON ME NOW, FISHING PARTNER!" rofl.....It was the ONE time everyone really relaxed and enjoyed each other and just let things happen. The smell of the pines and hotdogs grilling on the grills, the coolness of the water, the boating,fishing, water-skiiing. Watching humming birds feed outside our rustic cabins ---all of which had a wonderful lake view! HOOO BOY how I loved summer !!!*****

    Anyone else? I guess I am wee bit nostalgic today.

    Have a great day everyone!
    My favorite memories are of the carefree summers me any my twin sister spent with our grandparents. We would look for old flashlight batteries in the stone wall, then break them open for the black thing we used to write on the sidewalk with for hopscotch. I laid out on the lawn under the big Maple tree watching the clouds form different shapes as they floated by. I loved the fishing boat stories our neighbor Mr. Swensen told us when he and his wife came over to buy eggs. And the lightning bugs, yeah, we caught them too, then placed them in a jar, them took them in the house with us and put them on something to watch as they glowed until we fell asleep. And the fresh veggies, including luscious tomatoes, creamed green beans, and fried canned beef and pork, and the homemade rootbeer soda, and the homemade blackberry wine we were allowed to have occasionally. A Krug's bakery truck made deliveries of bread for my grandparents every week. We would run out to it to get the new coloring book the Krug's man always had for us. Aah, those precious memories.

    Hey guys... just now getting to check in w/ you all. Yesterday (Tuesday) was my first day of class.... and boy, am I ever wondering what I got myself into!!!!!! Personal Health, I think, will be fairly easy... lots of notes, but the prof writes them all out for you on the board... spend most of the time in there just copying everything down. I think we should only have one paper to write in that class, thank goodness.

    On the other side of the coin is Western Civilization I. Got the syllabus yesterday... first test covers 97 pages, plus lectures. Second test is 180 more pages, plus lectures. Third test will cover an additional 340 pages, plus lectures. And, the bad thing is, he doesn't lecture according to the book... it's just for "reference". With each test, there will be an essay to accompany it, and he says we'll have a week to write those papers and they will count for half of our grade on the test. I was just sitting there thinking, "Holy cow!!!" I read the first 30 pages the day I got the book and it literally put me to sleep... this is probably not a good sign... But, he has some interesting views on things, so it might not be quite so bad. I mean, I think the class will be interesting enough, but being able to pass it with at least a C will probably prove to be a challenge. I figure if I can handle this, I would probably do just as well taking that A and P class that scared me off so bad!

    Anyway, hope all is well with everyone. Maybe I can find time today when I get home to log on and stay for a bit....

    And there was no Good Thursday morning thread so I figured I'd just stick it on the end of Wednesday's! :chuckle
