Hello, I am from the eastern shore.

Last night, we had some crabs and other stuff.

Keep them alive.

This semester promises to be a challenge. The little nervous butterflies in my stomach surfaced on the first day in math class. In my legal classes I had become fully confident in my ability to give the correct answer anytime I was called on. In fact, I'd get excited whenever the opportunity presented itself to begin discussing the topic because I had my footing and I knew what I was talking about. But, with nursing (especially when it involves math), I'm an amateur and who knew that the armpit was called the axillary? Not me. But, I am studying hard in an effort to regain my ground and be able to master both being a paralegal and a nurse. The sky is the limit. I love having options and I enjoy learning. However, my favorite class this year is my legal class simply because I am familiar with it. But, I am slowly learning about the anatomical position and math equations as well. On my first day of class in Clinical Math, my teacher said that getting 3/100 questions wrong on a test was like seriously injuring or killing three patients. That puts it into perspective. 100/100 correct is what we're aiming for--you have to keep them alive! The catch is... staying alive during all this studying. Not just alive physically (Chocolate & Dr. Peppers take care of that), but mentally and spiritually. Where are my priorities? Textbooks are important to read. But, how about the Bible?

I am listening to a song called "The Reel" and now I want to learn how to dance it. It would be fantastic to learn 5 or 6 real dances. Teach me?

Believe it or not...

I am not a gymnast.

This tire doesn't make for a very creative picture unless you're a world class gymnast and could bend into some fantastic shape within the tire hole.

It was clearly an exit line.

"Let's see if I 'm making an infernal fool of myself, or whether there's something in my idea."
In Mr. Satterthwaite's opinion, the former alternative was by far the more probable, but he was much too polite to say so.

I read a book today. I finally remembered to bring one to work for those lulls in the day when I have nothing to do and am tired of the computer screen straining my eyes. Sarah lent me an Agatha Christie book and I enjoyed the read. It beats Facebooking, Blogging, or the other frivolous activities on the Internet which I engage in from time to time. That is because I find other people's words much more clever than my own.

A word I learned from the book:
Quiescence: the quality or state of being quiescent.
Quiescent: 1. marked by inactivity or repose: tranquilly at rest
2. Causing no trouble or symptoms (quiescent gallstones)

I fondly remember Mrs. Wilson playing her guitar & singing this song (Trust and Obey) when I was in Childrens' Church in the old, old church (CCPC). She had the prettiest voice I had ever heard. I loved this song because I admired her.

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.


Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.


But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.


Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet.
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way.
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.
