Busy times...

Sorry it has been a while...life is justa bit too busy right now.
I have 2 more assignments till I finish my post grad -now 2 doesn't sound like much, but it just isn't happening for me right now. Finding the time and having the inclination to do them is like pulling teeth! Grrrr. If I could find some positive in doing it, that might help, but all it is going to give me is a piece of paper telling me that I can do what I have been doing for the past 10 years! I am not saying I haven't learnt anything - how can you not? I am just questioning the relevance of some of the stuff that we have learnt. Oh well, it can only be good in the end! Just have to finish.
Work is busy - when is it not? Lots of people off sick and too many patients. Seriously - so many new patients of late - not good!
The new house will officially start within a week or two - just finalizing contracts. Will have to get down to the block to get a before pic....ohhhh...very exciting. Yesterday we started picking out baths, taps, sinks, etc. I love this part...am not looking forward to tiles and bricks though - they are hard to change if you make a mistake - lol. Will keep you all posted. Hope it all goes well. We really like our builder and think he is going to do a great job.
The kids are well, Matthew is off today as it is parent teacher interview day. Both him and Tori are driving me mad...! LOL
On a sad note; my Nonna (grandmother) is not doing so well. There is a pic of her in my previous post. She is in hospital right now and not looking to come home for a while yet. I pray she is OK, and ask that everyone spare a thought for her.
On a good note; Rays sister is getting married this weekend - unfortunately with the house stuff going on right now, we couldn't spare the funds to be there with about a months notice as a trip to Canada for 4 isn't that cheap. Nancy and Greg - we wish you all the best together and can't wait to see some photos. We truly are thinking of you on your special day and wish we could be there.
That's it for now - no photos for today. Hope everyone is well.
Hugs to you all.

Oh I am so excited to see pictures of your house being built! It was so much fun watching my parents' house go up-It changed so quickly!
I hope your assignments go by quickly-I find it hard getting motivation to do things at times too!

What exactly are you working on in your post grad work? Glad the kids are well. I'll be thinking of your g-ma.

Mejane - not sure where to write this response - so I will write it here in the hope that you will see it. I am working towards a postgrad in oncology nursing. I have been doing this job for almost 10 years now (wow - has it been that long) and my current employer offered me a $4000.00 scholarship to do the course. How could I refuse!?

are you on fb? it's like we're chatting but this is kind of a awkward forum. It takes a special person to work in oncology. Good luck with your last 2 assignments.
