what's new......

I do apologize for being away for so long. I know, 100's of you have come here looking for my wisdom...HA! After my hubby and my get away, I got an odd flu, where I became very well acquainted with the four walls of my bathroom. As it began to improve, I then got some kind of weird head/chest flu. I've been on antibiotics and Tylenol/ibuprofen for days, and it does not TOUCH it! I feel horrible and my head is all but splitting. So today I am heading into Dr. to check for H191. I almost hope it is bc there is drugs for it that should help!

In the meantime, I have been trying to study for the NCLEX. This is not easy when you can't think straight, let me tell you! I studied for one of the taxonomies for 1.5 days then took a test and got 72%! WHOOO HOOO! Even w/a 101 temperature! A 65% means you have a 97% chance of passing that area of the NCLEX. I know it's confusing, but it's the Kaplan program. I will start the 2nd taxonomy today after my brains stop from trying to escape my scalp.

For those of you who liked the idea of the Jane Austin book club, our next book is Sense & Sensibility (S&S). We will be getting together to discuss it in a week or two. So...any of you who'd like to read it and discuss later, I'm all for it. Our very own cyber-book-club if you will.

B (the boy)came home from church camp loving it. He made some new friends and a new view of God. It was pretty cool, he was so excited. K (the daughter) came home too with great stories of Gods power in Trinidad. I think it's the first time she's really seen the results of deep poverty and a place where not many have heard of God's saving grace. She has come home stronger, more self-confident, and ready to take on the world. But first...she'll have to get through her Sr. year.

E continues to train for his triathlon coming up next Sunday. I think he's ready, though he says he struggles in the swimming.

That's all for now. I will go try to catch up on your blogs. And if you're just lurking, WELCOME! Leave a comment, it just makes my hour!

Oh no!! I thought my summer cold was bad but now I feel wimpy lol... I felt the same way every time I brought Ashley in to the dr. Didn't want strep again but at least you could treat it. Hope you get to feeling better real soon!!!!! When is you Nclex scheduled?
