Catch me on a webradio show TONIGHT~

If you can't make it tonight, you can listen at a later time.

I will be "appearing" on The Cocktail Cafe show. The show is about mother's, and I will be presenting my point of view, especially in light of what that Ann Coulter had said about single mom's.

There are a couple other moms on the show, and I think this program is a really great program. I look forward to doing it, and listening. So check it out at The Cocktail Cafe Show. At 9:30 EST.

Ohhhh....Short SHORT catch up

Hey all...

First I want to say, I have the greatest of readers!  You all are so very much special. Thank you for your wonderful thoughts to my clinical post, it made me feel ok.  I spoke to the nursing director at school, and she said that many students come in to her after their first time in the nursing home in tears. I felt so much better between you all and her.

Second, I see I have a new reader :)  Welcome to my blog (or maybe you commented a long time ago?) Anyways, I will be checking out your blog and I am excited to read all about you!

Ms. Single Mamma...Yep it is when I close out the blog that I get that error.  I thought it was just you at first...but then it did it on mine to! LOL (Ok..not YOU but your blog and some coding that wasnt agreeing with my computer) I will check out chrome when I get a few minutes! (keyword being WHEN...LOL) One day we will have to take the kids out for a play date!  (They are so close in age!) Maybe during spring break! 

Third, I did go out with T...No nothing but it was good to see someone from highschool.  I also think he is emotionally not available, so Im shying away from him.   Ah well...I got a nice dinner from it. It was an early night with us, so I found an old friend from 4 years ago, she dragged me out to another bar to see a band...Oh man...what a night. LOL

And finally...School is in full swing again, and I'm filled up to here(imagine me extending my hand 5 feet above my head) with stuff to do. LOL

I read all blogs especially those that comment as often as I can, but just run out of time to comment.  I will try to do it more often, but it will slow down my reading time.  So if you get a comment from me on an old post....Forgive me :)

Ok I'm off to study for a test. I have 2 tests a week so I'm always studying for tests.

Thanks again for all your love!

Starting to doubt....

whether nursing is for me.

Friday I had my first clinical in a nursing home. My patient has some dementia and hallucinations. I was so overwhelmed that all I could do was come home and cry.

Blog error experts needed...

OK I am getting frustrated.  Snow...I know you may know you techno genius! LOL

Everytime I close certain blogs (including my own and Ms Single  Mamas), I get an error. (BTW for what it is worth...mine is on blogspot, and her's is on it isn't the host

The error looks like this:

An error has occurred in the script on this page.

Line: 53

Char: 3

Error: Object Required

Code: 0

URL:  (whatever URL I am closing)

Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

It doesn't matter if I click yes or no, I have to click it several times until the page closes. It keeps giving me the same error regardless of which blog I am looking at that has this error(except of course the URL part of it).

Anyone have a clue as to why??? I am beginning to really think about switching full time to Firefox...I am getting so sick of IE.

Ann Coulter..Kiss my....

Fungus infected big toe!

Rachel Sarah of Single mom Seeking blogged about this on her blog, and also wrote a "letter" to Miss Bitch Coulter on Momlogic

This really uncouth woman claims that all of society problems are due to single moms.

Ummm hello....Who just became the President of the United States?? The result of a single mom.

Instead of blaming single moms, shouldn't she blame society as a whole, possibly the government?  IF IF IF IF the studies show that the majority of criminals are children of single moms, than that is because of how society and the government have abandoned many single moms who really try to make it?

I can't speak for all single moms, but I do attend nursing school with several single moms. All of us have decided to return to school and try very hard to make better lives for our children, so we don't have to end up in the bad part of town where the children run wild because their single mothers have to work 2 jobs just to make ends meet.

I do not in anyway like the fact that I receive public assistance, but as soon as I graduate in December from nursing school...I am guaranteed to NEVER need public assistance again, unless for some odd reason the nursing profession is disintegrated, and I can can 99.99999999999% guarantee that this will not happen.

This "woman" (and I use that term loosely because to me she looks like a transgender male gone wrong) is the same woman who attacked the windows of 9/11.  Granted she does get people talking, and I am sure that her controversial topics probably gets her books sold, but I am standing firm, that I will NOT ever purchase anything from her.  I will not give her the satisfaction of my money.  She needs to be kicked to the curb.

Ok...I am going back to my boring self now...but it got my blood boiling.

3 Miles....

When you live in a suburb in the mid west, you never think things can happen so horrible and tragic.  This morning on the news that I got to watch because I woke up before the alarm(yay me!), this news hit just too close to home.

About 3 miles from me in a little village in the center of our township, a man shot his wife.  Not only shot his wife, he did this in front of his 4 year old, then held police at bay for 8 hours.

Apparently the parents were in an argument(according to neighbors this was not unusual). When neighbors heard what sounded like gun shots, they called the police.  What happened then is that he murdered the mother of this child, all in front of their 4 year old.  He held the 4 year old as hostage, before police finally stormed the house. They shot the guy in the head.

Fortunately, it doesn't appear as the child is hurt, but they haven't been very clear on his condition. However, the father is still alive in the hospital, condition unknown.

Why is it the innocent always end up murdered or having to live with these things permanently imbedded in their memory.

Please remember this precious child that he is not scarred by this too much in his life.
