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!

Yep, Fourth of July is a day away, and I have no plans. My poor hubby keeps trying to get me to commit to something, and I come up with the same ole thing, "Let's hang out at home, then drive over to ____ to watch the fireworks". Simple huh? That's what I want. Then he's like, wanna call someone to come over? Oh my, I'd have to clean...although...I did just clean the toilets for NO reason at all, hmmmm. Anyhoo, each day is full, though not with too much fun. I study, clean house (a little, I don't go crazy for pity sake), study and that's about it. I am supposed to do 100 questions a day, but the 75 on Kaplan takes me HOURS, and then I don't wanna! And I also need to review materials that I'm weak on. My testing day is Aug. 3rd..did I already mention that in previous post? Anyway, I've got MAJOR butterflies, and LOTS of studying to do before then.
