Who? Leah? Post high in the judging????? No, never. :heehee

I can remember a few "Last minute entries" that she wasn't going to enter on, but had some time in the morning before the end of submition time. Still scored high in the list. :lol:

Congratulations Toni! I pray all goes well. I should try to do that for my Wrigley stories but it's just too scary.

Speaking of scary... How are you feeling Pup any better? I bet Becky got you sick! You better not give it to me.

I went home after teaching 1st and 2nd grade Sunday School instead of staying for the service because I wasn't feeling well. Since then, I've ventured out of bed once since then. For the most part, I've been in bed with g abdominal pain/cramping and vomiting. Yay. (I'm back in bed now, posting from my iPad. Bleh.

I'm with Shann. I hope all of you guys feel better soon, but I catch enough colds from my kids, so please don't share. :cop

Thanks for the encouragement, everyone! I've placed 2nd a couple times, but this was my first 1st, so I am very excited about it. :mrgreen:

Back sitting at home on call. It's almost 3am, and no call yet, so I'm probably going to lose another 12 hours of work. And then when I'm off I'll be getting calls begging me to work extra. :(

I guess it's a kind of blessing; now just one 12-hour shift really wears me out. I'm considering looking for a day job, but even that's scary because it would mean starting something new for possibly lower pay, and what about insurance and all that? Plus I really love what I do. But then again, I'm killing myself with these hours. :roll:

I guess I just need to pray for wisdom.

Hope those who have been sick are feeling better, and the rest are having a good week. <3

They have the jobs Pup, but definitely the openings are rare. Plus, it's like a different job during the day which sounds weird, but you have to deal with more beaurocratic stuff during the days. The bosses are around and they almost seems to be a different pace. There's something nice about the night shift. It's quieter and more serene--unless there's a problem then it can be scary to be by yourself. I'm not sure how big Leah's hospital is and if docs are there all the time. I'm guessing not since she has delivered some babies herself. Ah I miss it.

I should be working on editing. I have three paying jobs and several favors I've promised, but just no energy at all. :?

I'll be praying for you, Leah. It definitely sounds like a hard decision to make... moving on is always scary. I miss working outside of the home sometimes; adult interaction, fresh air, having the opportunity to miss my kids. Then I remember that part of my "job" right now is playing on Twitter and Facebook which is kind of cool. Building a platform and all that.

If anyone's interested in my stuff by the way, here are the links.

No pressure though. I've still got a long road ahead of me. My agent's going to call me sometime this week to discuss ways to polish my proposal before he begins submitting it to publishers. And then... what if it a publisher doesn't buy it? Then what? I'm thankful for this road the Lord has placed me on but it's so ambiguous.

Shann, I totally get the low energy thing. I definitely want a mulligan on today. I classify it as a "mommy fail" day because.. yeah.. not my best parenting today.

Oh boy, Toni can I relate to those days. When Q was a baby and M was about 6, he had been screaming and I tried to give him his pacifier, but he didn't want it so I threw it and it ricocheted off three walls. M's eyes were huge as she watched me crying too. I put kids in car, drove to Mom's walked in handed her Q and said, Mommy needs to take a walk, wanna come. To show you how smart M was even then, she looked at me like I was crazy and said, No, I'll stay with Grandma. " smart choice. The good news is tomorrow is a fresh day.
Have you heard of the Mom Song? It's hysterical and so fits. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CXgoJ0f5EsQ
