Final Blog

Well I may keep blogging here and there just to get a few things off my chest. Anyways, my advice I would give someone who is just starting writing class is to make sure they give theirselves plenty of time to work on their final paper. I had things going on here at home and got behind in classes this semester. Writing can be easy and fun if you give yourself some time to do it. This class has been great. Our professor is great and very easy to get along with.

Unit 9 Post

To start off, I got a late start on my papers for both classes so basically its like a last minute thing for me. I really hate writing unless it is free writing. If I could just sit here and free write every paper like I do on blogs, things would be much easier. Its been a long semester for me and I'm glad its almost over. I do enjoy the week break in between semesters. I just wished we could of had a summer break like my children. It has been very rough trying to get school work done and take care of children 24/7.

Anyways, I just turned 30 Sunday and I really don't feel any older. :) I got my hair cut over the weekend then had my friend redye it for me. This time the hair dye stayed and didn't wash out like the last one. I didn't do much for my birthday but went out to dinner with the family. I originally wanted to go to the casino for my birthday but we didn't have the money this time to go. Even when we do go we have a set limit we spend.

Unit 8 post

Pretty much the only issues I have throughout this course is me falling behind in class due to family problems. I'm slowly catching up but having problems concentrating on what I really need to get done. Also it being summer time with kids home 24/7 doesn't help much in keeping caught up with school. I started out doing good in both classes until the past few weeks and its been difficult to get caught up and get things back in order.

I really dislike my A&P 2 class and just want to be done with it. I am glad that there is only a few weeks left for that class. The first A&P class was fun and more interesting, guess it varies with each professor. Like this class, Barb is a great professor and makes it interesting for us.

Anyways, off that subject. My birthday is coming up this Sunday, on the 11Th and really not sure what we are going to do. One of my best friends wants us to come over to her house for the weekend then family wants to get together to do a birthday bash for me, my sister n law, her boyfriend and her best friend since we all have July birthdays. I would rather much spend my birthday with my friend but I don't want to hurt any one's feelings. Guess I'll wake up Sunday and plan my day then, lol.

Unit 7 Questions

To answer one of the questions on the blog, I really don't know what to say on how I feel about peer reviews. I would most likely appreciate the feedbacks on how to improve on my project but I am really behind on getting my draft finished and posted. I know there will be points deducted but I'm going to try and get all my work caught up asap. The past few weeks have been rough and just starting to slow down.

Unit 6 Blog

For the past six weeks I have been dealing with stress for the most part. I kind of hate my A&P 2 class. Seems like there isn't anything good enough for that professor. Anyways, I've been working on research for breast cancer and working on writing my paper for A&P 2. I have to write 8 to 10 pages on the heart for A&P 2. Now for the research paper on Breast Cancer has been a little touchy subject to deal with, I lost an aunt due to breast cancer about 2 years ago. So i've been reading about the routine exams and ways to prevent breast cancer. Which smoking plays a factor in breast cancer. I'm glad I don't smoke and my mother doesn't smoke. So far my mother hasn't been diagnosed with it and she will be 51 in two months. They say breast cancer gets even riskier as you age.

I know this blog is kind of short but I really didn't have much to say.

Stressful weekend

As everyone knows it was father's day this past Sunday and it was a little hard for me to face the fact that my father was gone. I think I made it through the day without being too emotional. Just what really made my weekend go bad was, my hubby's grandmother, who I consider as my grandmother was rushed to the hospital a few hours after we took her back home. She was here at our house for the weekend and she was doing good. When she got home she was just relaxing and having conversations with everyone telling them how here weekend was. Then she asked her daughter ( hubby's aunt Diane) to make her something to snack because she was a little hungry. So Diane went to make her some pizza rolls and grandma was still talking at that time then all of a sudden her eyes rolled back in her head and she fell over. She was unresponsive for a few minutes and they were performing CPR on her while they waited on the ambulance to get there. The ambulance sat in the drive way for 15 Min's trying to do CPR on her and put iv's in her arm before they took off to the hospital. CPR finally worked on her. So she has been hospitalized for a couple of days now and they don't plan on sending her home yet. One doctor thinks she may had a little stroke. They are doing all kinds of test on her. Her heart rate keeps jumping high then goes down very low. Its wacky. They said she has a lack of oxygen to her brain that is causing her to be a little spacey about things. She was confused after she woke up the next morning and pulled her iv's out and started wondering off around the room. So the doctors were telling aunt Diane that they could put restraints on her or give her some medication to keep her asleep at night. Diane said there is no way she is letting them do that. So she has asked everyone in the family to rotate shifts on staying with grandma till she gets released from the hospital.

We know in our heart that grandma is a strong 91 year old. The doctors were talking about putting stints in her heart, they are waiting on test results to come back before they make their minds up. After my hubby gets off work, we are going back to the hospital to relieve his aunt so she can go home get a few hours of sleep and eat. It has been a rough weekend and so far the beginning of this week too. I lost my grandmother when I was 12 years old. Ever since I met his grandma 13 years ago, she has accepted me as her own blood granddaughter. She is a very sweet little lady. If she doesn't like you she will let you know right away. I got lucky to have her in my life and I'm not ready to let her go yet. Well enough writing for now, it is a little depressing.

Vent time about my lilttle sister

My youngest sister is 22 and has a beautiful little girl who is only 8 months old. My sister seems to be doing drugs and drinking a lot with her so called boyfriend. Before she got pregnant with my niece, she was doing the same stuff with her boyfriend, then he got locked up in jail for a little while. She started straightening herself up while he was locked away when she found out she was pregnant. She blames her bad stuff on the death of my father. To me, she was like this before he even passed away. My father always argued with her trying to get her to straighten her act up and she just disrespect him and did whatever she wanted. Well now that my father has been gone for over a year now, she has done nothing but disrespect her mother and aunt by doing the same stuff and leaving my niece at home with them all the time. She is very lucky that they care about the baby and love her to death. There has been times I went over to drop off my kids for a night and walked in on her boyfriend drinking in the house and them smoking. I just bit my tongue because it's not my house. I don't understand why my aunt and step mother lets her do them like that. My cousin who lives there said something to her boyfriend one night and my sister got mad at him. He told him there will be no smoking or drinking in that house or garage and he can take his stuff elsewhere. My father never allowed smoking or drinking in his house when he was alive. I sear one of these days I might hurt her feelings but she is going to get an ear full from me on how I feel about the way she is doing things to everyone. I just wished she would wake up and realize that she has her daughter and family that care about her so she should just stop all the nonsense and grow up.

Like this morning, she was driving my aunt's car and I know she had to be messed up on something like she always is, and wrecked her car saying that she slid in the rain and hit a curb. Now my aunt has no transportation. My sister had her own car but she let her boyfriend drive with no license and he has wrecked her car so many times it doesn't even run now. Her car is just sitting in the drive way all beat up with big dents everywhere and busted windshield. I don't even think my little sister has her license anymore. Why can't people just learn to say no to her?? Well enough venting for now.
