Unit 10

Hi everyone,
Wow, This year has gone by so fast.  This semester has also flown by too. I hope everyone is happy with their papers.  I am just trying to get through the holdiays without crying.  Not having all my family together.  I remember the old days as a child, the Christmas eve candle light church service the whole family attended they off to my uncle house for food and fun.  Then Christmas morning we all got one toy, one set of clothes and a stocking.  It was get, a big family dinner,  7 children, my parents, grandmother, and aunt and uncles.  As we all got married the family tree got many leaves, we had to add a  whole forest to it there are so many of us.  37 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.  We lost my dad and my grandmother.  We never had any other grandparents they had passed away way before we all came along.  Now everyone comes and goes and there are no Christmas eve party at my uncles home.  I still attend church service on Christmas eve.  I miss the BIG get togethers,the small gifts, everything is commercialized.  I still follow the tradition with my daughters and now with my grandchildren.  I see my children following my tradition with their children too. At least I can see a little tradition still staying the same.  Why does the meaning of Christmas have to be about giving all at once, why can't it be all year around?

Have a save and happy holiday

Unit #8 blog CM229-10

I'm so confused on this blog today,  I thought I had everything done, but then I found that I missed something. My limited access on this computer is driving me nuts. On top of things when I try to get into class I can't get past the second screen and the screen freezes.  Only in the class for the last week and a half.So it did it again to me so I can't go in to find out what my option is for sem opt2.  I can't print from the computers at the hospital and I won't have time to wait for the writing center so I have to wing my report and hope that it's done right. I really worked hard on this and I don't have the energy in me to put one foot any farther this weekend.  I had the flu for four days over last week, then we were hit with the snow storm and I was stuck at the hospital so I worked on my report in between taking care of my mother in law in between being sick, yeah.  I was very thankful that she didn' get sick.  I have been wearing  a mask and hand washing is  must............
Thanks for letting me vest..LOL

This week is really stressful with the final project due, with limited access to the Internet.  I feel that I am going to drown on this project.  I can only due with what I have at my finger tips and due what I can to get by.  God is my pilot and he will get me what I need to be. He will guide me and I will follow.

What I have been dealing with the last 6 weeks have been very hectic, but I would I change it for anything. I have always believed that you are to take care of family as be as possible. And I promised my mother in law that I would years ago, and that's what I am doing. She had been listed in critical condition condition but has been moved to a new hospital in NY State.She is now listed in stable condition.  Yes, I am still taking care of her 12 hours per day.  We are planning to have her moved home in the new few weeks once we can get her home modified and get all the medical equipment approved.  I will continue the care at home..

Schooling for me is very important to me, I have a goal that I have set for myself and no matter what obstacles get in my way I will get through it and keep going to achieve what I set out to do. I have always seen when I made the blankets for the injured troops how they worked hard continuing to make due with their new bodies and try to go back to active duty as a soldier with limited abilities, and its working. So they give me the same goals to work at.

Comments in my blogs

Hi everyone,
How do I feel about my blogs?  I truly have not had much time to read them.  I just had the flu and have been taking care of my mother in law for over a month now, so I really have not had time to read my blogs.  I bearly have time to read my mail when my husband sends it to the hotel.  I don't know what day of the week it is half the time. I don't think I will continue to keep my after my class is done I just don't have the time.  At least I can say that I have tried it.  Thanks for listening
