So I'm debating a job...FT pay is low, like LPN kind of pay because they don't take my LPN years into account, and I just became an RN (higher level nurse). But it is state so has good benefits. Or there's PRN. The pay is good, but no benefits. and it's called PRN. She can use me 5 days/week now, but will not necessarily always be able to...

I was very excited about the offer, as it's at the school for the deaf! I would get to practice/get better at ASL and work with kids again...pros? Cons?




Yikes!  Glad it wasn't covid! My cousin and her hubby from Kansas City (Margaret's daughter) are coming down tomorrow for a few (?) days.  They are headed to Colo to see their granddaughter, but Cindy wants to get some quilts quilted,  I told her we could probably get two a day done (no trimming or binding, just quilting.) she quilts on her domestic, but the larger quilts are harder to do.  So she is going to use my LA (she is quilting-haha) I think we can do it.  Now, how many days she wants to stay, that is another question.  They have other places they want to visit on their way to Colorado, but I am hoping we can get at least 4 done, maybe more!!  
I have been cleaning the house, but hubby bought 4 sheep today, so I have been helping him with that, and picked a bid bucket of okra--THAT is going to the food bank tomorrow, cause I am tired of okra and have enough in the freezer!!  So the house may not get quite as tidy as I would like.  Ha Ha, and the building is a wreck!!  But she can go shopping in my stash if she wants.  

Sounds like you two will have lots of fun. She will not remember how clean your house is but how much fun you had.

That does sound interesting. What are your long term goals? Does either help get experience for those? Benefits and salary help in the short term but if one gives you some varied experience that is worth something as well.

Pineapple, love that. Now to remember it.

Oh dear Carolyn, take care. If not better soon get another test. I know of 2 personnally where the first test was negative, then positive. And both have recovered. Dont be scared but be smart and seek treatment early.

Thanks for the Birthday wishes! We ate with Kim & family. 

Same position, actually, but I'm having a hard time choosing...thx for the advice! Did I tell ya'll it's at the deaf school? I love the idea of working there, learning more, etc.

that is cool.  My daugher really does enjoy working with the kids, it has been a nice break from SNF.

Definitely, if they close the dorms, these kids will all have to go home! They don’t want to. ASU was saying they’ll lose 10s of thousands of dollars.

 I have a dear friend who for the last 10 years has taken in foreign exchange students, this year they refused to enroll them even after the 14 days. In a school district (and his school) that he works for!

he went out of district, and they were enrolled. Thank goodness. 
I’m not letting my guard down though! I do not want any flu.
