Hi guys

We are getting a huge number of posts again,which makes the loading and posting time probably more sluggish ,so we will be doing a revamp again,and archiving another huge chunk of posts into the archive area above on the main CAL boards .

So if you have a comment about previous discussions, or want to add something new, that is fine !
We'll just be trying to tie up some loose ends here to make things run better.
None of our posts are lost,they will all be in archives,so if you ever have 6 month's time and want some reading material, it's all there for you !

A special thank you to Amy :manyheartfor allowing us to gab to our heart's content ,and to clean up the place once in awhile so it continues to run smoothly !

Julie- Work was good- I'm going to miss working with this group of people when the project comes to an end. It's so great to work with a group that has the same work ethic!

I work with someone who is from Bermuda- I'm going to have to ask him why the water is so beautiful there- I have been there twice- many years ago- my HS senior class trip was to Bermuda -and I earned every penny of that trip! We had so much fun. I went back with first DH when I was pregnant with my oldest and she is 31 now!! I could sure go back there- it is THAT beautiful!

The weather today sure had me thinking of taking a walk along the beach- spring was definitely in the air---but since it IS only February- I think we are being teased!

So will it be a new thread- or just a continuation of this thread with lots of the posts archived? Sorry if that is a silly question, but I just want to make sure we still have "our house":manyheart

Kim's doctor visit went well. They were very pleased with how she looked and how her chest sounded. They did order a repeat chest xray to make sure how the one lung was clearing up. That was a bit of an ordeal, but it always is. We both ended up getting haircuts, so we're set for a while now.

Have a good evening. :manyheart

If you could have any place in the world all to yourself for 24 hours, where would it be ?
:think

Hawaii......beginning with watching the sun rise, warm sand on my toes, the sun on my face, the sun beaming off the water making it glisten, a nice cold drink, ending with a sunset. *daydreams*

God evening everyone. Busy day here!

Mary I used size 5 thread and a C hook for the doily.

Joanne, I am always scheduled to work 8 hours. I will work 12 tomorrow if they need me, (and I think they will), and I'm having a good time. My interest in making extra money is pretty slim. I am not at all interested in having more possessions. As long as I can afford a little yarn and some fabric and other craft supplies here and there, I'm good.

Last time I was part of a thread that was archived, the discussion just went on as usual in the same thread, the thread was just a lot shorter!

Linda, glad Kim's doctor visit went well.

As for the colors of the ocean in various places, I've red that it has to do with many factors, including plant and animal life, light refraction and other factors.

Hello All. Sorry I dropped off for a couple days......just busy. Hubby is working 6 days straight so I am exhausted. He works and i'm exhausted. :lol He did take me to the bagel cafe today before work & that was nice. :manyheart I have my grades up to an A- currently and I have one more week left after this week. Then onto Nutrition and health diseases:pathology. Those sound much better....I am excited to start them.

I have been worrying about not being able to work after graduation....I still don't know how to code & no other coding classes. They taught us all about health insurances, privacy, etc but not actually the process of coding. We have learned about coding, but not actually doing it just what is behind the process. I am feeling like this is going to be a waste. What am I going to do? I am about $20, 000 in debt now with not a glimmer of hope finding employment. UGH!

Anywhoo, I am happy to be in here seeing all of the chatter.....I miss it so much.....I really need to force myself to get in here more often I just get beat with the depression somedays with not much fight left.

Judy~Have a great time at the book club meeting.

Dusti~I hope you are enjoying your vacation.

Julie~I hope they figure out what they need to figure out to get you on the right track to feeling normal again.

Joanne, Linda, Mary & Everyone else~Howdy Friends!! I hope all is well!!

The home of my dreams (which is actually on the market right now) where I could sit in a recliner and watch the snow fall out on the forest while having a beautiful fire going and soft music in the background with a Christmas tree behind me. Of course I would have my :crocheting nearby to work on. :P

The other place would be the room at the Stanley hotel in Estes Park, Colorado where Stephen King wrote the book 'The Shining'. I would absolutely love that.

It is suppose to drop back into freezing temps Saturday. UGH!! I don't work, but we are suppose to go out on Sunday (his day off) and it'de figure it's suppose to be the coldest day with a high of 30. BLAH!!

Good evening ladies :hi

Mary was off today, but work went rather smoothly and quickly. I hung back and didn't help the other receptionist out at all really. I decided this would be a good 'test' for next month when me and Mary are BOTH off for a trip to Pittsburgh to celebrate St. Patty's Day :yay

I think I might make the 9 patch that Joanne is making :think I remember her saying it was easy and pretty mindless, so that's what I'm thinking and I'll probably border each square before joining :think

As for all the marriage talk. I was engaged once, never married nor have I ever lived with a significant other. I can say that when I do get married, he will be marrying my family so like them or not, will need to be able to get along with them at the very least. I am very close to my family as you all know. My family is always accepting, even when they don't like the person we choose. Apparently they weren't crazy about my ex-fiance, but of course I never knew that until after it was over :think Now my SIL's family is a little on the weird side and although I don't look to be with them, I don't mind it either. She was never really close with them and is actually much closer with us :eek To the point that I was her maid of honor in the wedding (and she has 2 sisters!) My parents really are a breed all of their own :yes And let me tell ya, if it wasn't for my SIL, we'd never know anything about my wonderful nephews and niece :lol My sister is not married, but her and her bf bought a house together last year (well, it's only in my sister's name but they split EVERYTHING....she's a smart cookie) anyway, his whole family is awesome as well! Since the first time I met them, they are much like my family...very welcoming to everyone. I felt very comfortable in their home and now I even head down to vacation with them when they go (my mom came too last year). So, I can say we've been VERY lucky in that department.

Now, back to my parents, my nanny (mom's mom) HATED my father!!!! He had a head full of hair and played guitar in a band. They grew up about a block away from each other and my dad went there EVERY day and he got kicked out EVERY day, but he kept on going back. Let's just say that as long as I can remember....he's been her favorite (even over her own boys) :rofl

I agree with Faile in that it really depends on the person to determine if family makes a difference or not :think

Well, on that note, I have to check in with another thread or 2 before I hit the couch and start my american idol :D

WOW,a trip to Bermuda for a senior trip ? Holy smokes ! We went down to the Dippy Whip and got a large ice cream cone .


Linda
Glad your day was ok,and you got a new hairdo too ! Get some rest, you are probably worn out .

Hi Cindy
Thanks for the explanation about the beach water colors . Glad your day went well and are home for some rest .

Marisa
Sounds like you have a very tight family,which is good ! You've got a good head on your shoulders so I'm sure you will be choosy and pick someone who is worthy of you .

Shannon
Your dream house sounds so nice ! And you must not be afraid of ghosts if you wanna stay in that spooky hotel by yourself !!


Tab-
Thanks for jumping in. I know it's hard ...keep on trying if you can.It gets easier if you make it a daily routine,then you miss it if you dont stop in !
When are your classes actually finished ,and is this school one that helps the graduates find a job ? I know some of them actually do that, they help with placing you in a job, making up your resume to pass out , etc... so dont give up before you even try ! Maybe you could scout around ahead of time to see what is out there to get your foot in the door .

Julie- I went to an all girls Catholic HS- and in retrospect, it was really kind of neat that we went to Bermuda for our senior trip (and even more neat that my parents let me go). There were tons of chaperones- lots of teachers and nuns went along (who could blame them for wanting to chaperone this trip?) We had such a great time!!!

I sewed the blocks together on the nine-patch-so just have ends to weave in and the border.

See you in the AM!
