  1. Good morning RK, and everyone else but Jo.
    Good evening Jo.
    RK, you asked for prayers about a test a couple of days ago.
    How did it go?

    I never thought of taking a picture of clouds from an airplane.
    or a mountain?


  2. Morning nurse R. What a day. One little girls birthday is tomorrow and she was so excited that she could hardly contain herself.
    Then after lunch we couldn’t find one girl. Her things were still there and she had not been checked out. She came back 45 minutes later smiling saying she had been at the store with Mom. I saw her mom after school, but knew it would not be a good time to talk.
    Blessed that it is Friday and I have a weekend to rest up.

  3. 6:45 on the east coast and Mr. Fit ran off before I could go out for a sunrise walk on the beach.

    A down day will be perfect. I’m exhausted but content.

    Home tomorrow and right into the swing of life. Jo’s funeral is Tuesday morning. Helping with lunch, playing clarinet and probably speaking.

    I cancelled Bible study that morning. We’ll all be at the service anyway.

    Normal life would be nice. I wonder what it looks like?

  4. Test went ok. I did well on the essay questions, not so sure on the multiple choice. Still waiting for the final grade in A&P. I did not do as well on the statistic final as I had hoped, but ended up with an A for the semester.

  5. Good morning/evening, Jo.
    Michelle, I have decided that chaos is actually the norm. That way, I am pleasantly surprised when things go smoothly.

  6. Ah, final exams. I’m getting them ready for the high school students. The curmudgeon I used to carpool with never saw any reason for finals. Of course, he was a special ed teacher. I have mixed feelings about them. I use them to get an idea of how much the students learned to use the language for understanding. Chapter tests get the grammar and topical understanding.

    Oh, enough with that. How about some comics?

  7. Morning! Will the snow never end? The plow was out on the road this morning in this foggy frozen mess…..I believe it is just the ice that is the issue this morning….๐Ÿ˜
    Beautiful photo up there…the song that came to mind โ€œMorning has Brokenโ€….Cat Stevens is singing it in my brain ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐ŸŽถ

  8. Elizabeth is taking her 4th of 6 exams in about an hour. She’s scored an A on everything thus far. She should be all finished in another week to 10 days.

    Then it’s Summer Vacation and Senior year, with only 4 courses required to graduate. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Nancy – I like the Cat Stevens version of that song. 2nd Chapter of Acts has a good one also.

    You have snow? D1 and her family, along with D3 are heading to Denver today. I hope the snow doesn’t affect their travel. SIL has a brother there, so they are stopping to see him, then on to Utah and Arizona. Imagine traveling with 5 children aged 3-9. Lots of potty stops.

    When our children were little, we told them not to drink anything until a half hour before a planned stop. We stopped every 2 hours regardless of need.

  10. She does cyber school now. The only thing I do is monitor progress and crack the whip. She has 24/7 on-line teacher support, as well as by phone and Skype. They do all grading, and exams are even remotely proctored by video, to ensure no cheating and no help. It’s all quite efficient. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Oh, and she got a 95% on the English exam earlier. ๐Ÿ™‚

    English, Algebra, Old Testament, Health, which she considered the 2 hardest and the 2 easiest, are all completed. Only History and Science remain. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Speaking of graduation, the official ceremony is in less than two weeks time. Sadly, you cannot all attend, as it requires tickets, and I was only able to obtain two extra for my parents to attend. I also just received word from the regulating college of nurses that they have confirmed my eligibility with the university, so I can register to take the dreaded NCLEX registration exam to become an RN whenever I am ready. I have been studying for it,and I have an excellent textbook and online question bank with which to study. But the school recommended reviewing at least 3000 practice questions before attempting the exam, so it really is a matter of time before I will be ready to take the test. I have unlimited attempts to pass the exam, but since the exam fee for each attempt is over 300 dollars, I would rather only attempt it once.

  13. We still have cold temps but the snow is beginning to melt…they say we may get some rain this evening. What a dreary foggy day it has been…we havenโ€™t seen the sun in three days!! That is not normal for us. I did have coffee with my neighbor after we attended for the first time a book club at the Senior Center in Monument. It was interesting to say the least and I shanโ€™t be going back. I may attempt another one which meets in Palmer Lake at the library…we shall see. Iโ€™m thinking I haven no business belonging to a book club… ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ“–


  14. Restful Saturday here. I got my statement from my property managers. It is again a comedy. I can either laugh or cry. I sent them money last month for repairs. Looks like the repairs haven’t been done yet. But their bookkeeper looked at the totals and sent my money back to me, though it isn’t in my account yet. It was a very difficult statement to figure out. The good news is that rent has come in for half a month and I am due some of the money that they say they are sending me. I emailed my friend to call them. But I think I will wait for them to figure out their error. Last time I tried to tell them what was wrong, they insisted they had done it correctly.

  15. That sounds like a good plan, Jo. Tearing your hair out would merely leave you bald, with the same problems as before. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. There were about 20 older ladies and 1 older man (mid 70โ€™s -early 80โ€™s…the 92 year old gal couldnโ€™t make it today due to all the fog!) at the bookclub. My neighbor talked me into reading the book The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg. There were at least 10 conversations going on at once…everyone exposing their deep dark family secrets. And there seemed to be so much angst against Mothers in that room….
    No one was there to facilitate the discussion and a nice lady sitting next to me explained this is how it always happens…she invited me to the other bookclub she attends that is smaller and not so out of control ๐Ÿ˜Š ….my neighbor loved it and will be going back…..


  17. Good thing there are plenty of cups because that does not sound like your cup of tea. I would pass as well.


  18. Anyone else watch Bluebloods tonight? I know some have mentioned it here before. Jamie and Eddi got married. It’s the first time in memory that a cop show with a wedding did not have some disaster along with the wedding.
