Alright!! I have the next 4 days off!! But the bad thing is, we're NOT fishing. We're painting the cabin. Doesn't being a grown up really stink sometimes? Can't JUST go and do whatever you want to do whenever you want to (except for glenn and ULT smirk )

I'm still working on getting my paperwork in to start full time nursing classes this Fall. I start my clinicals in October and I'm getting a little nervous/excited. Change isn't always the easiest thing for me. crazysmile

The tomato plants are doing very very good! I'll have to take a pic of them this week. Bet you can't wait-the excitement is killing you! winkgrin (I think I better get away from the nursing home a little more often! jeesh eekblushgrin )

My son will be getting his driver's permit soon. That's going to be weird having him driving me or Jim around! eek

I sure am glad you got your smilies to work glenn! grin

Going back to school and getting out of my old line of work is a really good thing. I was getting really burnt out doing daycare. It's that whole "close one door, open another" deal. I'm sure that's how it'll be with the cabin. We love it up there so we'll be back. It'll just take time.

Hey Lisa - awesome about school and clinical work - you're moving on up.

Yes getting away from the nursing home once in awhile is a good thing. Not fishing is a bad thing, painting the cabin, a good and bad thing. crazy

Oh cmon, you could squeeze a little time out for fishing. I have a fishing excursion on Pokie Sunday, you could run away for a couple of hours and pretend you are our medic. We have room.

Got home tonight after 9 hours on Pokegama. We had two pizza parties booked today that were sold in a silent auction. I was captain from 1-6 and co captain 6-10. The first group we had a 95 year old mom and her 72 year old daughter, and 82 old woman who kept making eyes at all the young guys riding by on the jet skis. I laughed as hard, if not harder than our Mille Lacs women's GTG's. We fished, told dirty jokes, ate pizza and had a wonderful afternoon. The second group were younger and more subdued, which was good or I would have passed out from exhaustion. I will sleep like a rock tonight. I can't believe how much fun this is.

Congrats Hope!! That is awesome! What a pretty name. I think it's great how so many people are going back to old fashioned names.

Well, I'm back from the cabin and we got a ton done. We got 2 coats of paint on it and all the trim done except for the 2 north facing windows. I even stained the front porch. It looks very nice. But no fishing was done this weekend. Hopefully in a couple weeks when I go back up??!! Then I'll have something to report?!

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
