I couldn't find a more appropriate place to post this, so you guys win (lose?). Some of you may know that I retired from the USPS three years ago to pursue a second career in nursing. I started my formal nursing education in January of 2014 (pre-requisites in Jan. 2012). Yesterday I sat for my state licensing exam (NCLEX). I just got the notice that I passed. I suppose that makes me POTN's newest nurse. I have already accepted a position in a LTC/Rehab facility. I hope to end up working in the Alzheimer's Unit. My wife says I'll fit right in. I just bought a 1DIV to celebrate.

Thanks. My wife is an RN, too. Is it OK to comment about her uniform? I'm new to all this. :)

Hmm, if you had said it is, rather than is it, I might have. This is the lady photog thread, so I'll play safe! :oops:

Not to worry. I am the consummate professional... on the outside. :) The school I went to is about 30 miles from home. One of the other students (female, 22) is completely aware of what a disgusting pervert I am on the inside. She was instrumental in getting me through the nightmare that is nursing school.

Congratulations, Tom!
As far as your wife's nurse uniform...you could comment all you want, but female nurses don't do it for me. ;-)a :p

Just back from a weekend at Moss Landing where Saturday was beautiful & Sunday was June gloom. We didn't see a lot of whales, 4 each day but had some great fun with dolphins & this black footed albatross. This is not a small bird, the wing span is between 6-7 feet! Plus the shot was taken in foggy conditions but luckily the bird flew close enough to alleviate some of the gloom.

A couple of Risso's dolphins. They are pretty big & have a lot of teeth rakings on them. Most are from each other... Some from Orcas.

Fun stuff, Maureen! Love the shots.

Finished my day with an hour long massage. One of my students gave me a gift card for a massage. It was amazing.

Susie, thank you for your inspiring words.

Tom, congratulations!

Maureen, I hope you had a great trip:-)

I have visited my father twice, now. We don't really have much to talk about, mostly I just sit and watch TV with him for a couple of hours. I only do a couple of hours as I don't want to tire him out too much. This last visit I gave him a gift card for Denny's for Father's Day and his birthday. I found out he likes to go there for his biscuits and gravy!

I am trying to take it one day at a time. It doesn't help when my MIL keeps saying "I don't think I have much longer"!
It makes me want to let loose and let her know what that kind of talking does to me.
I'm trying to think calm thoughts:-|

Sorry, just needed to rant and rave, I don't get to do that at home:-)

Well go for it here, Lynn!!!!! I would be tempted to tell your MIL, next time she says she doesn't think she has much longer... "Harrumph! I should hope not!!!!"

But then again, I am not known for my tactfulness. Ha ha ha.:-P;-)a:-P

Trust me, I would love to, but I would be asking for trouble!

She is one of those older people who will say what she thinks regardless how much it hurts those around (including her family) and she will never, ever apologize. She also believes she is always in the right, no matter what. She also thinks that whatever conversation you have with her, it is all about her, regardless.

As much as I would love to haul off and let her have it (so to speak), it wouldn't do any good. It's like talking to a brick wall:-D

That's a bit harsh, I know some very nice brick walls, they'd be offended :twisted:

I do not understand people like that, Lynn. If I were you I would avoid her at all cost & if she said anything to me about it, I wouldn't hesitate to tell her you have had a bellyful of her self importance & mean mouth. Once my MIL made the mistake of criticizing me about my parenting choices in front of my husband & 3 children who were ages 7-11-13. We were on a 3 day camping trip together & sitting around the picnic table having lunch & I got up & walked away. I didn't speak to her again the whole trip & for the next 3 months. When she finally asked me why, I told her politely but firmly & never had any trouble with her again. I am sure she bit her lip a few times because she was old school & very opinionated but she didn't mess with me again until her last couple of years. By then she was 90 & suffering from malignant melanoma so I bit my lip & took care of her as much as I could.
