How almost a week has gone by and I haven't posted anything new! Today was our clinicals at the assisted living center. Unfortunately, my daughter wakes up and tells me that she has to throw up. I'm thinking to myself, wait, no, I HAVE to be at clinical today. Wer'e getting towards the end of the quarter and I can't make up any time missed. So, I worked it out with my mom to take the kids, instead of taking them to school. What would I do without my mother? So, poor thing threw up in a bag on the way to and from my mom's house.
Changing topics, have you ever completely ignored someone on purpose just to be rude? Yoday I had to get a hold of my clients chart to find out her medications. So I go into the office, ask for the chart, and one of the nurses standing there begrudgingly gave me the chart. Well there was another gal in there, who had'nt really aknowlegded that I had walked in, okay , that's not a big deal, but when I was done and was handing it back, I put it on the counter, she still was'nt looking up, and I said" thanks, I appreciate it"and she completely ignored me. We were the only ones in the quiet office area. Not evan a "uh,ha" ,nothing. It's not like it upset me, but it did make be stop and remind myself that not everyone is as friendly as I am and some times comman curtesy mabey isn't so comman.

Today was soo beautiful, not too hot and not too cold, probably around 75degrees. I started out by finishing my two annotations that are due tomorrow. I can't express how much I hate that kind of stuff, I'd rather go to the dentist than write papers. Unfortunately I will be having a library science class all through nursing school, in fact they want us to have a paper in the end that we can submit for publishing. Me? You want me to publish a paper? Right! Anyways, the area where I have my computer is at the top of the stairs on the second floor. Well in the summer time the upstairs gets really hot so any computer work needs to be done early in the day or later at night or you'll be sweating buckets. Fortunately, my brother in law is hooking me up with a lap top (he puts together computers, a real techy), so soon I will be able to blog from my back patio, Yea! Tomorrow in lecture we will begin learning all about concept mapping, some nursing schools do care plans, we do concept mapping. Should be fun!

So here we are with three more weeks to go left for first quarter. I can't believe that it's flown by so quickly! Today we went to two clinicals, the first one being a day are where we observed children in different developmental stages, the second on was a pediatric eduaction group project done at a middle school. Now that I'm home I need to do write-up for them, can you tell how exited about that I am? Yea, right! Oh well, these are the obligatory first quarter activities that every nursing student goes through. At least today is beautiful with a temperature of 75 degrees,aaaahhh, have to love it.
