Hopefully working smarter

Taking my car into town for some tests today (hopefully).

It's a cool 40 degrees here now, but should be sunny and closer to 60 soon. I should be able to get at least a couple loads of laundry dried on the line today. Clean sheets are on the bed, dirty are in the washer. Trying to get into a tidy-up habit for Thursday mornings.  I still have several hours of online course work, but my classes in town are over for the week. Huzzah!  Got an email from a great teacher this morning that I need to tweak my nursing diagnoses write-ups, so I'm going in to see her tomorrow morning to get on the straight and narrow with that. She said it's generally good, but needs a nudge here and there. I love having a professor who cares enough to let me know how I can improve.

Pharmacology exam is on the 24th, and I begin my prep work for that test today - I'd really like to hit it out of the park, so I need to do the wood-shedding up front.  I've got about 20 prototypes to really learn, so I'm going to start with a brief overview of all, and do big index cards for each, and tackle about one a day and then add into the stack bit by bit.  I'm hoping this method will work. I wish I could find some sort of flash card program on line I could use, but it seems not all programs go through the same meds at the same time. :(

Pups are larking about, and I opened a bag of mini marshmallows.  As everyone knows, alligators love marshmallows, and everyone knows that puppies are just furry alligators. I resisted the temptation to overdo it, but they had such a grand time, and it was very cute.  They are looking a little skinny lately...

I have two tests to complete and I hope to be finished with both by this time tomorrow.  This semester has been rough, but I'm glad it's about halfway over. After next week, I have Spring Break, and that couldn't come too soon!

Have a great weekend!

Better retention if you do the flash cards yourself! :-)
