Alix, I am glad to hear that you are feeling better. I have had strep throat twice and neither time was not alot of fun. Take care of yourself and get well soon.

Me too Barbara. Strep feels like knives in your throat. Icky. You feel better soon too, I'll send you some of my chicken soup to share.

Thanks SierraCook, I'm feeling almost normal again.

A friend has cancer......

I found out a few weeks ago that a friend has cancer. She is currently going through radiation treatments and is doing quite well, considering. It is just frustrating to see someone that has taken great care of herself has this trouble. To make her feel better one of my coworkers has came up with the idea of making her a quilt, so we are all contributing a square. I have been working hard on my square the last week and that is why I have not been around on DC. I would appreciate your kind thoughts for my friend and thanks for being such great people.

My mom is very, very sick. I was ready to hop in the truck and drive two days to get to her, but she says no, not now. I think going to see her will make her feel like she's dying, and she isn't ready for that. I'm tired of the bad weather, and sick at heart abot Mom. I guess I'm lucky, my husband made me put on my snow boots, and we walked Main Street for a pub crawl. It made me feel good to see how many people here like us, and made me remember why I moved here.

Claire, sorry to hear your news. It must make you feel quite powerless, your mom being at such a distance. Sounds like you have a good husband who knows how to make you feel appreciated, though.

Well this job prospect just keeps dragging out. Finally my nursing license went before the board that hires and that should of been the end of it and my being hired. Well since I put in the application and the time it went before the hiring board they implemented a new process to where you have to fill out all this other paperwork...... its basically putting in the same darn information you did when you filled out your application..... just so redundant and mind baffling..... thats the government for you . I just got off the phone with the human resource lady and asked her to email me a scanned copy of my application so that it won't take so much time to refill all this information out. I'm not kidding it took me at least an hour to fill that application out to begin with.

Claire, if you Mom is well enough to be stubborn, thats a good thing. (She sounds a bit like my Mom). I know that doesn't stop your worry or heartache though. Sending you a virtual hug.


Sizz, how IRRITATING! Bureaucracy at its finest. Its almost like the final test before you are allowed to get to work. Sheesh!

SC,
