    Oops... Yes but in her real life Mary didn't marry. I believed she lived with Carrie
    Ah, Little House on the Prairie!

    I think the show was awful, but I loved those books soooo much. I still crack 'em out once in awhile and I've always enjoyed learning about how things really were, outside of the books... warts and all.

    Ya know, as I've grown older, I've come to the conclusion that Pa was an ass. All Ma wanted to do was settle down and raise her girls like ladies and make sure they got an education, but noooooo! Pa had to keep draggin' 'em all around, uprooting them every time he got an itch in his butt. I also think he fooled around on Ma when he went for those long journeys into town.

    I real life, I believe Willie lost his eyesight to a firecracker and Cap died in a threshing machine explosion. Laura could be a "b" and she lied at times...

    Okay, that was totally off topic, but like I said, I'm a LHOTP junkie, sooo...

    I was dubbed "The Hygiene Queen" because I was/am very very picky about the hygiene and grooming of my patients. When I was an aide, you could tell which patients were mine, just by the way they looked.

    I was also dubbed "The Gero Whisperer" because I am exceptionally good with getting difficult dementia patients to calm down and get them to do the things we need them to. I had already joined here as "Hygiene Queen" by the time "Gero Whisperer" was mentioned, but I like "Gero Whisperer" better.

    I also was dubbed "The Urinator" because I could always get a urine sample from those oh-so-tricky aforementioned dementia patients... but I decided to pass on that for a username!

    In our hospital, they don't hire RN's who are obese and smoker. I tell this to my little "huge" friends who are planning to work in our hospital so they can start watching their diets now and start working out.

    How's that working out for ya? Did your huge friends smack you down? [emoji23]
    Farawyn, it's her "huge little friends". Don't forget the little part... it conveys a much more loving feel...

    This is wonderful! Thank you for taking the time to tell me your story. So tell me, why DID you decide to "bite the bullet" and become an RN? Better pay, or did you just want/need a change?
    I got a job at a hospital that has an amazing tuition reimbursement program (my education has been essentially "free").
    I was 35 years-old an felt I was getting too old to be an aide (my own perception of me).
    I love CNA work and want to teach the CNA class.
    I had a neighbor whose husband passed away. She was left with four small children. I felt needed a "plan" if anything happened to my husband.

    Turns out, about a week, after the blazing joy of finding myself accepted into the nursing program, my husband informed me that he wanted a divorce. He left me for the widow with four kids!

    So.

    I guess I was wise to get into nursing school!

    I still don't know if it's for me. I'm only so smart and often don't feel smart enough, but I can at least do my best and try try try!

    And what were her and Almanzo doing on all those long buggy drives to the lakes? Grape picking? My sweet Aunt Fanny!
    Well, ya know, she claims she came home all hot and sweaty because it was humid and they had to put the rubber buggy top up

    Well, I was going to be an Art teacher. I was naturally gifted and even when I was really young, I was praised for my abilities. I was very proud of it... but I was always an underachiever and had no clue how to get what I wanted. I had no guidance. I was afraid of the world.

    I was working retail when my best friend called me up and asked me to be a CNA with her and the rest is history. I started attending community college hoping to get myself back on track to be an Art teacher, but I somehow ended up as a nurse instead. I dunno...

    So, I've worked with the geriatric population since I was 18 and it's all I really know. I was an exceptional CNA and am still growing stronger as a nurse, but I'm nothing special. I continue to study and teach myself something everyday because I enjoy it and want a better understanding of what I'm doing and why, but I have no desire to further my degree.

    I've always wanted to teach CNA classes, but I need to work for insurance benefits and I can't see how I can fit that in. I don't even know if I would go over well as an instructor because my expectations would be too high. I love CNA's and I love teaching newbies, but I have been frustrated by the poor work ethic and lack of common sense which is far too much these days-- or so it seems. I hope that doesn't sound arrogant.

    I find myself getting myself finally getting my creative juices back and in my off-time I have been working on getting my art skills back up to par. I miss that part of me

    Sorry for the whine, time for a little cheese... because I'm a cheesy kinda gal and that's something to know about me, as well
