GH, GA and ER

I've been catching as much GH (General Hospital) as I can. I'm about tired of Carly/Sonny/Jax. I think Carly and Sonny just need to get away from each other...and move one. They could have such better stuff going on. And Jason and Sam belong together. I'm still not quite sure what happened, but they need to be together, even if Elizabeth is carrying his child (Which I don't know that she is, I'm just saying). Greg V is doing a great job as a junkie...this is a great story line as it truly shows how drugs can have you making bad decisions/choices and what happens to the poeple around you when you do.

Grey's Anatomy started last week with a bang! I'm telling you, Derek Shepherd could charm the panties off of a med student...oh wait, he did! LOL. I'm looking forward to tonight's episode...Not that I really expect Meredith the choose one tonight, but I think it will be fun to watch and with the crazy week I am having, I need a little fun. Go Grey's Anatomy!

I watched most of ER last week, and I think it was the first time that the new season started right were the last season let off. They usually go a few months, or at least a few weeks..this time , they only went a few minutes. It was exciting and riveting....I can't imagine anything but good things for Abby and Luka's baby, though, because Carter and Kim lost a baby a couple of seasons ago and with Carter and Abby's history, I don't think they can both lose a baby...or if they do, it might be the glue that binds them together.

So that's my TV viewing for the week...That and Dancing With the Stars....I love Joey and Sarah, have no preference about Willa, and I don't want Mario to win, because even though he is handsome (did you see him last week on Nip/Tuck!?? OMG), he dissed Ally Landry in the worst I don't want him to win.

Quizzes, tests and lab practicals...OH MY!

It has been a busy week around our house. I had my first a & p test last week, which we still do not have back. Apparently one version was corrected with the wrong answer key, so they had to be regraded. So next Tuesday we should have them back. Then Tuesday we did our histology unknown, and I got them both right! (Thank goodness we were able to use our flash cards). Tuesday was also the first math test. I heard people talking about how hard it was, how they might drop the class, how they are going to the tutor, and I'm thinking "WHAT?" I guess I just remember enough of it from school, that it's all making sense to me. Either that or I completely fubbed it up but don't know it yet. We should get that test back on Tuesday also. Yikes!
This is girls weekend as Daddy is going out of town to an anniversary party. The girls are both having friends over tonight, and then tomorrow we're going to get Halloween costumes. Or things to make them. Hannah wants to make her costume this year, but I don't know what she wants to be. Should be interesting.
Caden, the cutest baby ever, turned one this week. I cannot believe how fast the past year has gone.
Grey's Anatomy's new season started last night, and it left a lot of things hanging, so it could be a really good season. They have always had great writers over there. I look forward to watching it every week, even more than ER and that is saying a lot.
Anyway, that's the scoop for now. I'll try to check in this weekend.

Help anyway you can, even if it is just with thoughts and prayers.

The first of many...

Tonight is my first A & P test of the semester. I have been studying like crazy and have come to the conclusion that my brain is FULL. I'm trying to come up with some tricks to make things stick. Some of it works, some of it not. there are 6 short answer questions on the test, plus a "model" of the skin, and lots of multiple choice. I'm not sure what the short answer questions are worth but the whole test is 100 points, and it's over 5 chapters. that's about 20 points per chapter, which means that short answers should only be worth, what, five? Maybe? Each?! I don't know, all I know is Ican't wait for this test to be over. At least then I will know what the test looks like. I know, you are thinking, "amy, you silly silly girl, tests look like tests", why yes they do, however, I haven't had to take a test like this since I was pregnant with Hannah and she is almost 12. 12 years is a long time to forget. I guess instead of blogging I should be studying, but I truly believe that my brain is fried. I will look over the information a couple of more times before the test, but I am now at the point that I just want it to be over with.

Next Tuesday is the first algebra test. I'm alot less nervous/worried about that one. Even though I've never considered myself good at math, I think I remember the progession of solving the equations.

SO, I'm off....

The meaning of dreams....

I have been having a semi recurring dream over the past few nights. Nothing fancy, earth shattering or gory, it's a romance, or something akin to that. I can't give away the details, but I can say, it's most likely a short story. It involves an actor on GH (and it's not Rick), and it moves fast. I don't know why I've been having this dream, but I figure if I get it down on paper, my brain may move onto other things. Today, being the anniversary of 9/11, the lightbulb went off in my head. The heroine of this dream/story will be named Marni. Maybe that's why I've been having the dream. Anyway, once I get it down, I'll post it on my website

Also, if you aren't familiar with Marni, the Rick fan, who lost her life on 9/11, please check out this page: I never knew her personally, but her writing can make you laugh and cry all at the same time. I'm sorry that I never got the chance to read her stuff first hand. And, today, as we remember those we lost, I send a healing prayer to all of their families.

We will never forget.

Til next time~

It's finally Friday...Yeah! Lots of homework and some studying to do this weekend, plus do the laundry, plus clean the house, plus, plus, plus....there is always something on my plate that I HAVE to do, and then I try to fit in time for the WANT to do's....and I almost never get all of it done. I guess that's the price I pay for being a multitasker. I always have several balls in the air at the same time. Thinking ahead to the coming week: Sunday School teacher, Girl Scout leader, student, employee, wife, mom, daughter, aunt (Caden is almost one), taxi driver, laundress, floor cleaner, vacuumer, dishwasher, cook (sometimes- thank goodness Dan is a great cook), friend, and many more. Maybe there will even be enough time for me to be ME! Derek and Abbi haven't seen me for weeks, and they have a few new "Cousins" who have materialized lately. I've just been jotting notes, because I don't have time to do fully developed stories.

For those of you not familiar with Derek and Abbi, they are the main characters in my book. It has been in the works for more years than I care to count, but it is closer and closer to being a completed manuscript. It was supposed to be done by 2007, but since I started school, I figured that was not going to happen. I don't have a new deadline as of yet, but i do need to get them back on my to do list. Which reminds me, add webmistress to the for me, one for the family, and
one for each girl scout troop. Ha! Who am I fooling. I haven't updated the websites in weeks.

All of this is making me want to add things to my to do list, and that's not good! I guess I don't really need to sleep, do I? Oh, yes, I do. I tend to be pretty ugly (and I ain't talkin' looks) if I don't get enough sleep.

Anyway, check out the websites sometime. I promise I will spend some time updating them. If I do one a week, they will all be updated monthly. What a brilliant plan.

Have a good weekend,

Studying Tissues

It seems as there are several of us concurrently studying taking A & P! WOW. And we are all on the same track, ie- tissues this week. There are so many different types of tissues and so many ways that they can look. My husband seems to think that I am putting in more time that I need, I think it's not enough. I wish we could email pix to each other to check our knowledge of tissues. I keep mixing up the flashcards I made (which is a huge help) but I hope that I can learn the "tricks" to remembering the tissues before the test. (which, I believe is in 2 weeks!) Oh, that just reminded me, I have to go print out the review sheet. First written test is next week and I'm totally stressed about that. It's gonna be a long hard weekend of studying for me.

My new (to me) car is going into the shop tomorrow. Right now, it won't start. Great, huh? I knew this was going to happen, okay not really, but I figured with my luck that something HAD to happen once I started school.

Last week I saw three people in one day that I used to work with. Two on campus. Apparently, I'm not the only one who has made the decision to go back to school. Go, us!

Okay, so today's post is short and sweet, I'm off to class.
