I want their Christmas to be special but not all about gifts, so I put alot of thought into what I will get them.
We usually give them a gift on Christmas Eve. and two other things on Christmas morning, plus a few things in their stockings. They seem to enjoy and play more with their toys when they don't just get package after package.
But back to fall, I love fall . In October my BF and my sisters and I usually make a quick one night trip to
Lancaster, Pa. Then me and some of my friends from nursing school plan a weekend at our farmhouse,
this year it was only going to be three of us and the night before my one freind got sick and so only my
friend Barbara and I were the only ones to go.
But we had a wonderful time, we talked alot, ate alot and laughed alot.
We also took a big drive into WV.
I could have never made it in nursing school without her, we were each others cheerleaders, we cried together and encouraged each other and being older it was alot harder for us going back to school.
But I am proud out of a class of over 60 , there were only twenty something of us that made it.
But I am quite upset how LPN's don't have the respect that they should, at our local hospital, which they assured us wouldn't happen when we were in school. LPN's are considered techs, I am more than a tech,
I dedicated two years of my life to studying and schooling. I would love to be an RN, but no more school for this gal, I want to enjoy my life and my grandchildren. he he
