With all the unemployment out there these days, I've been curious as to what the best career to go into would be.
One career that I've heard that nursing was on the rise. According to Yahoo, Recent projections from The U.S. Department of Labor show that nearly 600,000 new Registered Nursing jobs will be created by 2018. That's right...nearly 600,000 new jobs!
I've always thought if I was a nurse, it would be neat to wear hospital uniform scrubs. Call me kooky, but it would make me feel cool. When I found out that now you can have custom made scrubs, It really made me want to check into it. Old hospital uniform scrubs used to be blue or green, but custom scrubs are colorful and bright!
So, if you are in the nursing field already, you should check them out!

When I went through the teen years with my oldest daughter, we had our share of teen drama and I always thought that things would be much easier when my son reached the hormonal years. Boy, was I wrong.
It all happened so fast, I didn't know what hit me. It was like one day he went to bed a happy and caring little boy, and woke up a grumpy I-hate-the-world teenager. He's been stressing me out for the past couple of months with his mood swings. One second he's happy, the next, he's ready to bite my head off. I'm afraid to even have a conversation with him, for fear of what personality will jump out of my little male Cybil.
This was a conversation we had the other day...
Me: "So, what classes are you taking this semester?"
Jo: "Grumble, grumble, grumble..."
Me: "Um, what?"
Jo: "I SAAAAID, I HAVE SPANISH, ART CLASS, AND THE SAME CLASSES AS LAST QUARTER!!!!!!!!!! GEEZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Me: What the heck??
He won't tell me a thing that's going on in his life and it drives me crazy. I just get 'I don't know' as an answer. How in the heck do you get in a teenage boy's head? I'm about ready to send him to a head doctor and sneak a tape recorder in the room. I so want my little five year old back-the sweet and caring little boy who loved his mom.
God help me if I survive to deal with when my youngest turns into a teen...
I just got a new printer for business and I finally went through my black ink. I've been looking for a replacement cartridge and oh my gosh, ink is expensive! I really wanted to find cheap ink.
I couldn't believe inkjet cartridges can be so frustrating to find also. My brand of printers ink had been discontinued already! So I need to find a compatible ink for the printer ink now. I'm also used to having just two cartridge, now I have six to change-ouch!!
Another option is to refill the ink cartridge. What do you do when you need an ink cartridge changed?

While it sounds a little clichŽd at this time and age, my assisted living community has bingo every Tuesday and Thursday nights in the game room. I know it may not be the number one activity that most people think of when they want to socialize, it is most certainly a big event in my little community-I'll tell you what! Bingo night is a convenient time to check in with many of my good friends in the community and get a sense for how they are doing, what's going on in their lives, and what's good on the television. The game of bingo itself is pretty simple and based on chance, but it can still be exciting for us. Most of the time there is some small prize for the winne! r of the round. That always makes it interesting.
Ever since I've gotten a little older, the places that I socialize have narrowed a little bit. However, my son helped me get a new pair of hearing aids at HearingAidsByMiracleEar.com and I am really getting the most out of my social time. I'm just glad I have the opportunity to interact with some great people

When I tried it, it was when I was totally sick with a sore throat. I usually take Vitamin C when I'm sick, but I figured this would be the best time. I took two tablets at a time and waited a week to see what happened.
I did seem to feel a lot better after the first couple of days. It did taste a bit chalky, but I think this just might work!
Would you like to try it?

Nutella does not contain any hydrogenated oil or trans fat and is low in sodium. This spread does not contain peanuts either-an important fact if you are concerned about peanut allergies.
My daughter and her friend were thinking up different ways to try their Nutella spread.
We included a healthy chocolate drink to go along with the theme of the party.

How lucky are you? My husband and I talk about how lucky we are all the time. We thank our lucky stars all the time. Right now, Redbox and Social moms wants to know how you think you are so lucky. They are even calling it Lucky to Have Friends Like You. You can read about this promotion and share what makes you feel lucky too.
So, why do I feel lucky? Well, let me start by saying that I used to not feel so lucky. Not until I met my husband. I had gone through some unlucky times before I met him. My oldest daughter's father died from a freak accident. Then, my son's dad was in a terrible accident that left him in no condition to live a normal life.
I felt like I would never meet my soulmate and spend the rest of my life with anyone. Then, I met my husband- online- and my luck changed ever since. We were married a year later, and I gave birth to our wonderful daughter who is now six!
We are very compatible and even though there are times we fight, I know we were meant to be together. He also is a great step father to my two other kids as well. We don't even think about him being their stepdad and just like he is their real dad.
I thank God that he was sent to me, because I don't know what I would have done without him, nor could I picture my life without him.
I feel that we bounce or luck off of each other as well, because we both believe in thinking positive about things we want to happen. This has happened with money coming unexpectedly to each of us-on MY birthday, I was thinking about how nice it would be to have the money that a client screwed me over come back to me in a different way. The same day, my husband got a refund check from his car for the exact amount! How lucky was that?! Luck and postive thinking go hand in hand-I believe that!
Now, I want to know if you think you are lucky and why.

Almost every day for the last couple of months, I've been dealing with Emily throwing a fit every morning about going to school. This was the same girl the first weeks of school that used to jump out of bed everyday and ask if it was time for school. Then, for some reason, she just started not wanting to go. She would have a different reason every day, from saying she didn't feel good, to saying she would miss me too much.
