(This is actually JOEL doing a blog post)
In case all of you out there in Bloggerland didn't know, Monday, January 28th was Kim's 29th Birthday, so.... Happy Birthday Kim!
I thank God for bringing this wonderful women into the world 29 years ago and allowing her to be my wife. I am so proud of her and how hard she works at work and school (especially this week!) and how much she cares about people (like you folks!) and how much she desires to serve the Lord. I love being her husband and going through life with her. So everyone make sure and wish her a Happy Birthday!!!

Can you guess what we had for Kim's Birthday dinner??? Anyone who knows Kim very well should know....

Yep... you guessed it. Sushi!!!

Here we are at Kim's favorite Sushi buffet where we eat way too much raw fish for any two people to handle.

Kim and her favorite food.

I guess Kim likes showing off her presents 'cause she wanted me to put this pic up.

I've been thinkin...

I was thinking this morning about the reason I created this blog. At first I suppose it was because everyone else was doing it and it was a fun new way to keep up with people I may not otherwise. Now, it is still a way to keep up with people, but I feel I want it to be more. Not that this isn't enough to keep up with people, I LOVE that and have fun looking at all my fellow bloggers blogs. However, since I am a nurse, I thought maybe I should share some stuff I know that maybe others out there don't. I am defintely not an expert, but any means, but I have seen and experienced a lot in my nursing career and thought maybe I should share some. I am also hoping maybe Joel will share a little of his expertise and write a post once in a while about his thoughts on Jesus, the Bible and just general Joel thoughts--I know he has a lot of them.
So, are there any questions that anyone has that I could answer? Anything anyone wants to know?

I am not sure how much I have talked about previously regarding my classwork over the summer. Let's go back even more in case y'all don't know at all what I (Kim) am doing. I am working on a Master's degree in nursing which when I am finished, I will be a Family Nurse Practitioner.
Over the summer, I took a Pharmacology class (basically studying drugs and how they effect the body)which I subsequently did not pass. It goes without saying that I was pretty devastated and it really made me re-think what the heck I am doing! I was discouraged and just really thought I was not cut out for this. I don't doubt that I am a good nurse, I know I know what I am doing, but this class just KILLED me.
Anyway, it was possible that I might not be able to continue in the program. However, it has worked that I have one more chance to complete this course. I am also taking 2 additional courses with this one to total 3! That is more than I have done previously so I was able to go down to part time work-only on the weekends!
ALL this to say, I would appreciate all your prayers and encouragement the next 10 weeks as I endeavor on this CRAZY PHARMOCOLOGY adventure.
Sorry to share probably more than what you want to hear. Thanks for reading.

Vote for me!

Hey everyone! I am posting this to ask for you to vote for me. I entered a scholarship application to get money for school. I figured this is the quickest way to get it out there. I know it's kind of goofy, but school is expensive, I'm sure a lot of you understand. Thanks and VOTE FOR ME!
