Ta Da!

I just emailed "the paper" to Yale! Yay me! I will need to do some additional tweaking to it to get it published (right now it is an unpublished paper for presentation at Yale) I may as well take it all the way and get it published, likely in a Nursing Ethics Journal.

I have other homework to begin work on, plus I need to get my ass down to financial aid today and see about a student loan for my tuition. My funding sucked big time this term and there is no way that I can get my tuition paid as it stands, so I believe that I will take a student loan to get me through this term. Not what I was hoping to do, but necessary.

Things are going well. My Program Plan (a large document that details how I plan to complete my degree) is ready for approval by my committee and so I am working on arrangements for that. (Another HUGE hurdle complete!) Research is coming along, things are a bit slow right now as I wait for the data to be collected. Once the data begins to come in it will get much busier.

Next week I start my other class, which is a Stats class that meets every day for 2 hours (M-F) for the entire month! UGH!

"The boy" got his work scheduled changed starting next week, so we will be on a similar schedule. (he worked crazy hours!) I am looking forward to that.

I did put an ad in a local magazine to clean houses, just trying to think of ways to make some cash! I don't have time for a "real" job so I keep searching for things that I can do "here and there" so to speak. "the boy" has a lead on a quick and easy type thing I can do as, if I can just get my tuition paid for, I think I can scrape together enough cash to live through the summer. (without taking more of my retirement)

Ok......I may not have been awake enough ...... hopefully I made sense! Later!

I am sorry to hijack this thread. But, I need your prayers. My son is facing something that could be really bad. We go in Monday for him to have a brain biopsy. We are scared. Regardless of anything, please, please, please pray for my son and for us. We need God’s mercy and our 9 year old son needs His mercy.

I know there are people of faith that read and post here…I am asking for prayers for my son. Thank you.
