Chemistry UH? and Missy's Externship

on September 29, 2007 - 5:47pm

I was helping my daughter (Missy) with her chemistry today (yah right). Maybe I'll learn something or maybe I'll just walk around a zombie for a while after helping her. I'm no dummy but I feel like a two year old when it comes to this stuff. She's learning about the different parts of the cell like the nucleus,atom, protons,neutrons etc. and how inbalances can cause problems She's also learning to indentify different diseases in a microscope. It's over my head. I never did well with science in school. I'm glad I don't have to know it, that's for sure.
I just got off the phone with Missy and she was notified of an interview for her externship 10 min. from home. If she's accepted there, she will be working in the gastroenterology department. It deals with the structure, functions, diseases, and pathology of the stomach and intestines.

She's quite nervous and excited but I know she can do it. I'm very proud of her.
It's time for a huge dose of Josh. I need to be grounded so to speak and if anyone can do it for me HE can.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Unexpected Day

on September 27, 2007 - 9:24pm

I visited with my 94 yr.old Aunt Bobbie today. She wanted to go to the Value Village to look around. While we were up there she was looking through the t-shirts. She found one and boy was it a whooper! The t-shirt said Sex Instructor First Lesson Free. My daughter said she liked it but my Aunt said, "I think this should belong to me because I have more experience than you" We burst out laughing.

Day After A Full Moon

on September 26, 2007 - 8:42pm

I've been struggling to stay awake today. There was a lot of activity going on last night. The good old full moon gets things brewing. The police, aid and medic units were out in full force last night. It's amazing the things that a full moon does to people. It's one of the busiest times for police and medical services. The moon was beautiful though. It was a real low key day for me today. I did a small load of laundry and visited my Aunt. I ordered pizza for dinner from our favorite italian restaurant and now I'm getting ready for bed even if it is 8:40 at night.
To all grobies out there have a good night!!

Fall Is here and school is back in session

on September 25, 2007 - 4:54pm

It's 55 degrees, the sky is gray, the wind is blowing, and we have a real heavy mist. We're suppose to be getting some snow in the mountains in the next few days. The snowboarders and skiiers are going to be happy to hear that. Boy, fall is hitting quickly this year. Who knows what's in store for winter. I just hope it's not like last winter. We had a power outage in December for two and a half weeks. Some people were out for a lot longer than that and it was very cold!! I don't want a repeat!!
My daughter is back in school (so am I) and she's taking mainstream Human Anatomy and Physiology this quarter. I'm real interested in that. She's severely dyslexic. The director of the medical program suggested that she get help with her reading and writing when she started the program. She knows the info. and the practical portions (procedures) with no problem. She aces the procedures every time. I have been learning more than I ever thought I would at this tage in my life. That's alright at least when she starts talking in medical terms I'll have some idea of what she's talking about. She's hoping to get her externship for Medical Assisting and Phlebotomy this quarter as well.When she finishes this quarter she will study for her state exam to be a certified Medical Assistant and her exam for her llicense in phlebotomy. Her next step is to enter the registered nursing program. It took her a while to figure out what she wanted to do but that's alright because I know that she'll be happy with what she's doing. She's also leaving herself with options to change fields if so desired sometime down the road.
I have to brag a little bit my daughter (Missy) has always sttruggled in school but since she figured out what she wanted to do she's had a gpa of 3.76. She was just notified that she was on the Vice President/Deans list.
Well I had better get back to crocheting the blanket if I'm ever going to get it done. I'm shooting for October 15th. We'll see.
Lots of Love to all

Frustration Builds

on September 24, 2007 - 7:18pm

It's only Sept. 24th and I have 21 days before I go see my doctor to see if he'll take me off the rest and 3 lb. lifting restrictions. Don't get me wrong I certainly don't want to end up back in the hospital with internal bleeding but I'm getting extremely frustrated. At least for today.I laid awake most of the night just thinking what I will will do once the restrictions are lifted. It's so hard when I'm so used to a full day of activity. This is the first day that I have felt this way. I'm trying real hard to stay positive but sometimes it's real challenging. I've been having crying spells and I can't seem to turn the water faucet off (damn it anyway). I'm just feeling sorry for myself today and I need to knock it off. Self pity isn't becoming to anyone so I really need to get my act together and get out of this stuper. I'm one who has had to learn to have a lot of patience due to illness throughout my life but some how it's different today. I can't explain it. Listening to You Raise Me Up has given me lift as well as You Are Loved (Don't Give Up). He's always around to lift one's spirits when needed. I just need to have a Grobathon (listen to his music non-stop) at least long enough to listen to all of his albums maybe twice.
Thanks for putting up with my complaining.
Tomorrow's a brand new day and I can start fresh and upbeat.
Night all.
