Figures. They called me like 3-4 nights when I was off and out of town to work extra, and the first night I'm scheduled I'm sitting at home on call. Grrr....
I do want to get a Kindle, but first we have to pay off the rest of the credit card from our trip to Seattle (and whatever was left from the car repairs). I use the Kindle app on my phone for now, but I do want something which won't require the use of my computer glasses to protect my eyes. Becky, there's a couple sites which tell you the deals for free Kindle books: BookBub
and Inspired Reads
. Also there are a ton of public domain books if you just search the Kindle store starting with $0.00 and up. I have way too many now in my Kindle archive. Meaning that I don't have time to read them all. Or I don't make time. That's kinda one of my resolutions this year. To make time for stuff I want to do.
Yes, Miss Shann - you do need to work on publishing that book. I do realize that children's books are hard to write, and illustrating is a big part of it. I was thinking of individualizing the books for Kylie and making them stories about her, which she would enjoy. Actually it was my mom that thought of it first, so I can't even take the credit for that.
The books she loves are simple but take creativity on the part of the reader to make the book more interesting. I just have to mull on it and figure out something fun. Maybe even taking Bible stories and making them readable to a baby. Shoot, I should do that for my own kids' sake.
Ryan starts up college again this week, which he's not too keen on. He's already worried about the amount of work, but I'm sure it'll be doable. My mom suggested I look into getting my Master's, especially if my employer will pay for it. They'll cover $2000 a year, which isn't much, but might cover two classes or so. I'll do some looking. It's been nine years since I graduated, and I still love not having homework all weekend. Up til now I've been completely uninterested in going back to school, but it's true that I should consider it if my employer is offering. The only catch is I'd have to do it in nursing. I'm not sure I really want to move up in nursing. I love my job, but I'm not sure I'd like to do anything other than teaching, which pays practically nothing. Management is such a headache, though, and I don't really want to go that route.
Miss Holly, we need more fun pictures. Get to working on that.
Seriously, though, I do love having you back.
Pup, I know her hair has some pretty curls, but I'm pretty sure they're not horns.
Fairly sure. Other than the refusing to go to sleep, she's an angel!
Okay, time to make a snack and do some internet browsing. Still mulling over the flat topic. The thing that stands out in my world has to do with FHR monitor strips, and it's a not-so-good thing to see, but only Shanny and I really understand it, plus the two other nurses who ever read the Challenge stuff. So I'll have to be more creative.
Night, all. Pray I get called in! After one, though. Then my standby counts.
