Margaret Miracle said...

Lily and I are trying to stay quiet while Wes sleeps as he works all night tonight. I don't think it will work so we are going to head to his sister's house to visit and stop by Super WalMart to get a few more things on our packing list in hopes that will bring on our LOA:) What book are you finishing?

Rachael said...

GIRL OF 1000 BLOGS: I hoped I'd find you here...I've been enjoying your blog since you found me and put all my good header tips to use, and then "poof" you dissappeared after all your family drama, and I never got your email. Can I have an invite to your private blog? rach(dot)wanted4(at)gmail(dot)com.

Margaret Miracle said...

Hi Lea, Have a great busy weekend!

Margaret Miracle said...

Pam,

I just peeked in at your blog and I think it is amazing what you are doing for the woman who has cancer...Amazing.

Pam and Jeff said...

"The Wonder SPot" by Melissa Banks. I am almost done. It is pretty good-nothing earth shattering but enjoyable. It will be interesting to talk about it. Everyone will probably say "Did you like it?" It will be hard to discuss.
Pam

OH MY #6 said...

U2!

Gosh, I love Kimberley's new BLOG look.

I am so,so, so, glad its March. Does everyone know that we turn the clocks a head March 9th??!! Spring forward March 9th. That must mean spring, right?!!!

I hate it that I have to go this morning. I love this chat.

See you!

Lea

Pam and Jeff said...

We will see. Hopefully, I will be a match. From my preliminary tests ten years ago, I am as close as you get before they have to test a few things. It is is cool. I hope for her sakes that I am a match for her.
Pam

Margaret Miracle said...

That would be such an amazing gift for her and her family! I love books that make you think.

Margaret Miracle said...

I too am glad that spring is hopefully in the air. we keep missing school so our summer break will be really short and I want as much time to bond with Graeme as possible. Bring on Spring

The Johnson Family said...

Good morning all!!

Alyson & Ford said...

Good Morning All! fm here.

DW was called to work to climb through a faulty boiler resulting in one our generating units having to shut down... Dirty and hot. Ugh...

She asked me to say hi and sorry she can't join in the fun. So, HI from Alyson.

Pam and Jeff said...

I love books that keep you reading. You just want to get to the end. I haven't found one like that lately.

Pam

The Johnson Family said...

I have been trying to catchup..wow Pam what an amazing blessing with the marrow match. I am praying for you both. I am in nursing school right now and can not wait to get done. I am at the hospital as a nursing assisitant.

The Johnson Family said...

You look like you keep VERY busy!!
Pam

Hi Johnson family! My husband is in nursing school right now too. He is shadowing a nurse and is working the night shift to get all of his hours done quickly so he can hopefully travel to China to get Graeme.

Margaret Miracle said...

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy(Kim & John) said...

The Johnson Family said...

margaret wow the snow is beautiful! I love the kids rooms I am also a die hard disney fan! but I have never gotten to go to disney world, but I am praying to take my kids in the next couple of years! Graeme is such a doll! I xcan so relate to your post about being up thinking about him t 5 am!

Pam and Jeff said...

Of course, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is good. Midwives is a good discussion book. I also enjoyed Jodi Picoult's My Sister Keeper. It ended way different than I thought. I was suprised.
Pam

The Johnson Family said...

girl of 1000 blogs do you live in ca? I see you are at disneyland?

Margaret Miracle said...

we really enjoyed working on the rooms and Lily loves her new big girl bed...now if she would only sleep in it!

Pam and Jeff said...

I was looking at the picture's of Lily's room. Love her bow holder. Do you know where you found it? That picture of her in her jammies and sandals-tells it all!!!
Pam

The Johnson Family said...

Oh I hope he gets done in time to travel? I work two overnights a week at the hospital and it works out well my husband homeschools those two mornigns!! but I will be so thrilled when I am an actual nurse!!

Margaret Miracle said...

I Loved Snow Flower and the Secret Fan and am currenty reading February Flowers by Fan Wu. She describes Guanzhou and it put me right back in the city. I have not read Midwife but wll have to add it to my list.

The Johnson Family said...

Pam thanks for the suggestions I think I have heard of my sister's keeper..has anyone read there is no without you?

Margaret Miracle said...

My sister-in-law bought the bow holder at a little boutique in Louisiana. I have tried to find more but have not been able too....they would be great secret pal gifts!

Margaret Miracle said...

How much longer do you have in your nursing program? Wes will finish his LPN this May and then has another year to complete the RN program. I will be so glad when he is done!

Margaret Miracle said...

I like some of the Jodi Picoult books and I just finished the new Anita Shreve, Body Surfing..it was a good, quick somewhat light read. I have not read There is no wiithout you.

Pam and Jeff said...

There is No Without You. I have not read it. Is is it suppose to be good.
She did great with that bow holder. It is just too cute. You never know where and when you will find something special. It is good she got it when she saw it.
Pam

The Johnson Family said...

I have 2 semesters to finish my LPN then I may take a break but the lpnto rn bridge is 9months. I am just at the beginning and i ma going to take a semsmter off when my angels gets home!! i have a early childhood degree already so this is the second round of college much harder with 5 kids:) but still rewarding! i would love to do neonatal,peds,lactation, ob NICU anything in that area? what does your hubby want to do? Pam what is your field of nursing?

The Johnson Family said...

I am sorry it is there is no ME without you.. I have not read it but heard it is a fabulous adoption book.

The Johnson Family said...

I can not believe it is 6 mos today since we habve been waiting for Savannah-Hope to come home. All we need is the 171-h I am prayin git comes today or early next week.

Pam and Jeff said...

I currently am the Clinical Informatics Clinician for three EDs. Basically, I teach nurses how to use computer applications while taking care of patients. I am not directly taking care of the patients but still in the room with the nurse who it. I really like it. IT still has some strange hours. I also support different areas throughout the hospital that are rolling out new systems. The cool thing about that is that I am exposed to all different areas.
Pam

Margaret Miracle said...

Wes is not quite sure yet. He is leaning towards ER and is interested in more school but I don't know how much more I can take:) My sister-in-law was a nurse in the NICU until she stayed home to raise my 4 nieces and nephew (ahh but she is never really home!) and my brother is an oncologist practicing in Louisiana

The Johnson Family said...

pam that is awesome I am not sure about Ed..some crazy ones come through there!

Kristy said...

Good morning everybody!

Steffie I am having trouble also with my "customize" page, and apparently alot of other people are. I clicked on something the other day and their were comments to "Blogger" about this.

Margaret Miracle said...

Pam that sounds really interesting. I like a job that is ever changing. I am a pediatric speech-language pathologist and I specialize in children who are deaf/hard of hearing or who have feeding issues. I love working with the baby babies.

The Johnson Family said...

Our twins were in the NICU and a good or bad nurse makes such a difference in that time of your life I have always wanted to do NICU but got freaked out that I could not do nursing at 18 so went early childhood but know I know I am supposed to be a nurse I long for it, but I still only want to work 2 days a week because I love being home! i have only been working 6 mos and i have been home almost 8 years

The Johnson Family said...

margaret our twins have been in speech services since age 2 and it has helped them so much!

Margaret Miracle said...

I think the NICU would be the most rewarding and the hardest for obvious reasons.

Hi Kristy

Pam and Jeff said...

Your husband would love the ED. It is different everyday. You know never know what you will face. Well I can tell what you will face right now, that is flu season!!
Pam

Margaret Miracle said...

As much as I hate to, I really need to go. Lily has done great staying quiet so her Daddy can sleep but she is getting restless with me on the computer so I better run. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Johnson family, do you have a blog, I would love to see pics of the twins! and the rest of your family!

Kristy said...

Hi Margaret, that first picture of Snow day on your blog is just priceless, I love it!


EVERYONE MY SON IS OUT OF IRAQ!!!!

Pam and Jeff said...

The hospital I work in delivers the most babies in the US. So, you can imagine our NICU is giant. It takes a special nurse to be able to care for those little babies and familues. I would be scared that I would hut one. They are just so fragile>
Pam
Hi Kristy!!!!

Kristy said...

Johnson family could I be invited to see your beautiful family?

The Johnson Family said...

well I need to hop off here and feed my little monkeys some breakfast! I am making a surprise for my husband so i have to get the ingredients (I do not like to grocery shop) and then i have a date with my twins to see alvin and the chipmunks!! I will try to check in later..

Everyone have a great weekend!!

Pam and Jeff said...
