    Not working! LOL!

    My daughter is a competitive gymnast (moving up to level 4 next month) and my son is in band and plays every sport he can, so most of my days consist of rushing out of work to get them from school and bring them to the gym, field, etc. It'll be so nice not to feel so rushed for 2 months!!

    We also have season passes to Six Flags and the pool. We'll squeeze in a family vacation AND I'll be training for my 3rd Chicago Marathon taking place in October.

    I'm always impressed when people tell me they are training/running in a Marathon and wish that it was something I could/wanted to do. You will only find me running if something is chasing me - LOL.

    Not a school nurse, but I love the thread! Currently sitting on the patio with the little grandbabies playing plays on and sandbox. The five D12 shifts, and we are off to Illinois to see one of the older grandkids graduate high school. (Also, I get to play with my other little grandbabies while I'm there!) The day we get back from that road trip, we jump on a plane to Cancun for five days, Back home, another straight six D12s, then fly to Virginia beach to see another grand daughter graduate high school. After that it's back to routine, three D12s a week with the rest of the time on the porch swing with my guy and a cold drink.

    Look into Doctors Without Borders. They are one of the few non religious charity organizations.
    It looked quite expensive to go with Doctors Without Borders last time I checked. Is it still? I believe all cost, flight, etc were paid by the volunteer last time I looked & I just couldn't afford it, though I would love to go!

    Are you in Chicagoland? I'm in the West burbs. My best friend is doing the Chicago Marathon for the second time this fall!

    I am! North burbs. Good luck to your best friend! It is my favorite race next to the Wisconsin 1/2 Marathon that takes place in Kenosha in May. The atmosphere is amazing!!

    I misspoke earlier. Today was the last day for Seniors (not sure why I thought I had another week, time flies, that moves everything up).

    I've seen a few come by today to say goodbye or to pick up stuff they had (inhalers,etc...) in clinic. So sad I wont be seeing these faces again (well, I do intend to go to the commencement ceremony on my own time).

    I've got so many favorites even with my frequent fliers. Case in point was the sweet young man I just removed the foley from (so happy, they'll let him wear a diaper to graduation, he already pretty much missed out on the prom). I doubt I'll see him again, but we've spent a lot of time together if not under the best of circumstances.
