School in itself is not as big a challenge for me as is the time I need for it. There aren't enough hours in the day to do all the things I have to do. School is one of my top priorities. I make time for school. I will let most anything else go in order to study. I sometimes have to give up sleep to study and understand some of my classes. I have a full time job, elderly parents, and I try to get to the gym as much as possible. I know I have to take care of myself to be able to take care of everything else. I work and study hard and it shows. I get compliments on my work and my grades are very good. My dad, who is 78, has alzheimers disease. My mom, who is 70, can barely walk, still works part time, takes care of my dad when she is home, and worries about everything. I worry about them and check on them everyday. I just hope I can hold on until I get my degree.

Seems like I am drawing a blank on everything today. I know me, and I know I have an opinion on just about everything. You know what they say about The only thing I can think of now though is that I can't think of anything.
I had an experience this morning that was very upsetting. I live with an 85 yr old lady with Alzhiemers disease and her skin is very dry. She itches all the time. We have some medicine we put on it that helps for a while. This morning was the worst I have seen. When I would try to put the medicine on her she fought me. I think she thought I was making her itch. It took about 45 minutes to get the medicine all over her and finally stopped the itch. If anyone reading this has a way to stop itching I would love to hear your opinion.

Drama, Drama, Drama

Drama! It seems to follow me where ever I go. It's like Murphey's  law, If something can go wrong it will. I say, "If drama can happen it will." I grin and bare it, try to defuse it, and walk away. Drama seems to slap the grin off my face, burn faster and follow me. At work there are too many chiefs and not enough Indians. At home everyone has a problem that they seem to think I can fix. I am taking two classes and one of them is very hard. Anatomy and Physiology is much harder than I thought it would be. I feel like I am reading a foreign language. Thank God for my comp class. It is the one thing that is going right, even if we don't have a book. One thing is for sure, today is a new day and it has to be better than yesterday.
