Can't believe I made it to Hodge Podge!!!

1. What question do you often ask yourself?

I am not sure...I ask my self a bunch of this point I ask what do I do next?

2. Do you grow roses? What's your favorite color of rose?  Ever been given a dozen roses?  Where was the prettiest rose or rose garden you remember seeing?

No, I do not grow roses but would love to. I love red roses. I got a dozen of peach roses once at work my hubby sent them to me to surprise me....I was really surprised because he had never done that before.
The prettiest rose garden was in my grandmother's back yard every year in June the yard was full of red roses

3. Do you read the freshness dates on grocery store products?  Will you use eggs past their 'use by' date?  Take medication that's expired? Buy a dented can?

Actually I do check the dates. I am a stickler on expired things. I remember opening a bottle of salad dressing at the same grandmother from above it was expired by 3 years!!! It erupted like a volcano when we opened the top!

4. Should athletes be role models?

No I do not think athletes should be role models and while we are talking athletes I think they get paid WAY too much!! I think role models should be firemen and women, police men and women and soliders!

5. Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay of Nepal became the first explorers to reach the top of Mt. Everest on this date (May 29) back in 1953. What's something you hope to achieve in your lifetime?

I want to get my Master's degree. I had to stop and take a leave of absence because of my new job....I want to finish it.

6. What would you do if you had twenty acres of land and the money to develop it any way you choose?

My hubby loves the woods we would probably clear two acres in the middle for our home and keep the rest wooded.

7. If I invite you to a party with a 7 PM start time, what time will I actually see you there?

i think since I am always late i would probably get there about 8 pm.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

My new job has really sucked up my much that I had to take a leave of absence from school as I said above. It has me wondering if this is really what I want. Yesterday out of the blue I got a call from a hospital I taught at for the college clinicals. they wanted to let me know they had two positions wanted to know if I was interested

Answers to Prayers are not always easy

There is something you want, something you need. You pray for it. Then your prayers are answered. Is it easy street from then on? I am here to tell you NO easy street is not always the way. I was unemployed as many of you know. I prayed for a job. A job came along. Then quickly after the job new opportunities in the job came and I prayed. I got the position offered. Now the really hard work comes and I am finding out I can not do this alone. Prayers got me this job and prayers will help me be the best I can be in this job! Especially when it gets hard and believe me it is right now.

I will ask all of those who follow this little blog please say a prayer for me to be able t do this job to the best of my ability and then let God take over and go that extra mile.

Emotions have no reason

It is crazy ya know, how emotions work. You think everything is going well and then before you know it smack the emotions are going crazy. I am sad and want to cry. I am mad and want to punch something. Next I want to get in my bed cover my head and hide from the world! Then I am fine, but my stomach can't keep up with the emotional roller coaster it is upset and nasty.

It seems crazy to me. I am a rationale person in a rational and critical profession. So this period of my life called menopause is not except-able and  want to scream like Archie Bunker once did to Edith "Get over it you have ten minutes" or close to that here I found the clip.

It is really crazy. You can not control the emotions from one minute to the next.

Time flies and Blessings Flow

Hello everyone!!! Time flies when you are having fun! At least that is what they say! I have had many things going on and many blessing from those things so I thought I would share.

  •  My dad had a heart attack a few weeks ago. He had a quadruple  by-pass a week ago Monday. BLESSING- He is home and doing well!! To look at him you would not know he had this surgery. He is in the best physical condition he can be in to make a complete recovery! Today he met with the doctors and he is very good! Does not have to see the surgeon again and return for the cardiologist is 1 year!!!

  •  As I said in the previous post for Hodge Podge. I did get a job. It is crazy how it happened. I thought I was looking for a new church. I went to a few churches closer to my home. One of the churches had a flyer for a hospice company. I went to the web site and filled out the application for a hospice case manager and forgot about it. About a month later I got a call for an interview and got the job. I started working and after two weeks I was asked to interview for the Clinical Director of Hospice for this office. I got that job too! All this is strictly God's plan! It was in His hands from the beginning. It all revolved around our church. We have since gone back to our original church.

  • My sister graduated from the University of Pittsburgh and passed her boards to be a Certified Nurse Anesthetist. Two hard years of work. Praise the Lord!! and she has a job at UPMC Mercy Hospital!
The new job has me running all over the place and working many hours right now because we are just starting out in the central region of Ohio. Some days I start early and don't get home until very late which was making a big stress on my school work for my Master's Degree in Nursing. So I had to make a hard decision to take a leave of absence for a few months. Since I have made that decision the stress is still there but not as intense with school too If I am tired I can fall into bed and not worry about meeting school deadlines. At least for a few months!
