  • Slept really good. Up, relaxing, having CWHWC, getting ready to finish packing, and get ready for trip. Biggest thing left to get ready is to cube up leftover roast and ziplock bag it, slice up two red peppers and ziplock bag them, and put both along with some salami slices and fat bombs in an insulated lunch bag with a cool pack to add last minute to suitcase. I almost always have a TSA paper saying my bag was searched (can't you imagine the dog going crazy for the meat?) when I get to my destination. It gives me a good start on lunches for next week.

      • Got in, windy and blowing dust. Plane was late, so canceled dinner with sons. Will meet them tomorrow instead. Picked at some cheese and celery in the lounge with some water. May go get a glass of wine in a bit. Planning an early night. Long day tomorrow.

        • Slept about 6 hours, up, drinking coffee, getting caught up. Packing some roast beast, cheese, raw veggies for lunch. Since I'm up early am thinking about getting some eggs and bacon for breakfast. Wearing cherry red cordoroy skirt, blk tights, short black boots, black, red, white pattern sleeveless shell (I'm always hot) and black thin sweater today. Taking the time to flat iron hair (usually it goes in a tail) and wearing it down. I've got a phone conference with my stats buddies, homework to do, and a faculty meeting to chair. This evening I'm meeting 2 sons with their SO for dinner. DS #3's SO is sitting for NCLEX today. Please send positive thoughts.

            • So I was in my office at 6am. Got quite a bit done. No eggs for breakfast, did stop for a vanilla latte. Worked on various things and stats conference call until lunch. Some cheese and roast beast cubes and red bell peppers. Lots of water. Good meeting, phone interview, then finished up some homework. Back to the hotel. Snacked on fried (maybe 10) green beans . Met sons and SOs for dinner. We will know Wednesday if SO passed NCLEX. I think he did. I had 3-4 bites meat only chili (DS4 took the rest home) and 4-5 bites salad with blue cheese and a glass of wine. Another glass when got back to my room. Getting ready to call it a day. Lots to do tomorrow.

                Me too. And am totally impressed with you traveling so regularly and cooking stuff to take with you, or cooking in your hotel room. You're far more organized than I.

                this too. I'm surprised the results come back so quickly. When I wrote the Cdn RN licensing exams a million years ago (well, I suppose more like 24), we had to wait usually about 2 months, sometimes more to get results. In between graduating from the RN program and receiving the results, you could work as a Graduate Nurse with a limited scope. 2 days is very impressive.

                • Back in the dark ages I wrote the test with everyone else in the state over 2 days. It took 6 months to get the results. And we had to work as graduate nurses because of the length of time (factor in 6-8 weeks to sit for exam plus wait time for results). It's all computerized now and you don't have to wait for others to test. From the amount of questions he got (is algorhythmic with a minimum of 75 and a max of 270? Starts with easy question, you get it right, harder question, so if it cuts off at 75 you eith bombed spectacularly or you got 75 progressively harder questions right. He had under 100 questions, so I'm sure he passed).

                  • Slept right at 8 hours last night hit over 5000 steps yesterday. Up, drinking coffee, news on, catching up. Lots of homework to do today, meeting for 2 hours this afternoon, and a dinner meeting with my 2 local graduate students. Before I go to work, I'm going by and picking up my old mammogram films and hopefully ultrasound films/results. Since my meeting isn't until this afternoon, I'm being a bit lazy getting started. Tomorrow I've got 15 interviews spanning 10 hours ( on the length, on the number of applicants - I'm steadily going up, which is good for a new program and no advertising).

                    • That sounds a lot like the respiratory therapy licensing. I suppose all the profession have gone to the computerized algorhythms. Once difference is that we find out we passed immediately! Although it still takes forever to actually have the license issued for some reason. We get a printout with our picture on it saying we were successful. I have heard gruesome stories of the olden days when the test was a two-day oral ordeal. Glad I don't have to do that.

                      Sounds like you are well into another busy and productive day!

                          • Did well today. Some roast beast chunks, celery, cheese, and pepper strips for lunch. Dinner was prime rib with horseradish, potato (yeah, I know, but occasionally I think they are okay) with butter and sour cream, salad with blue cheese and two glasses of an excellent Malbec. Some cheese cake bites back at the hotel. Watching chopped and relaxing. Turned in a bunch of homework and worked on more stats. Put in another quiz and helped a faculty figure out a on-line platform issue. Met with my doctoral students and they are on track and a bit ahead of where I asked them to be. Tomorrow is interview day.
