    I'm an RN, Nurse Manager. I love it
  2. Should A Teenager Have To "work" For The Riding Extras

    Well as some of you know I recently moved from Michigan to North Dakota. The horses are currently still being boarded in Michigan. My 13yo son plans to spend his summer in Michigan so he can show his horse. He has been working hard and earning the money he will need for the summer to show. He wil be staying with my parents and they will take him to the barn, shows, ect. I think that it is important for kids to learn the value of money. If things work out and we can bring the horses out here he will have to do his share of the work. My other son decided he did not want to do his part and we sold his horses last spring.
  3. Where Would You Want To Live?

    I have not been on here in awhile but I would love to move somewhere warm (anywhere that is warm). I lived in Michigan's UP for most of my life and just moved to North Dakota (close to the Montana border) a few months ago. I have to say that so far winter has not been bad. It was 40 degrees today and we have no snow. I went back home last week and froze. I have to say that I loved North Dakota when visiting in the summer months so hopefully I will survive the winter.

  6. Building A House...

    My husband and I have built two homes thus far. the first we hired the company he works for to do almost everything other than clearing the land as we were only 19 at the time. The second we also built with the company he works for but we did a lot of the work ourselves. I still have nightmares of sanding and stain tonged and grove boards for the cathedral ceilings, and installing hardwood floors through out almost the entire house LOL. I love both homes, I do have to admit that it can be hard on your marriage. We had more arguments during construction then ever. But that feeling when you finally move in is worth every second of it. We swore after the second one that we would never build again but recently we have had the tak a few times again, so who knows, maybe we will again. Good luck with your adventure.
  7. Got A Message

    About 5 years ago I had to sell my horse (I was going through BC and could not ride and could not keep them all). I sold my barrel horse and one other that I did not have anyone to ride at the time. Anyway I got a message from the girl that I sold my barrel horse to asking if I would buy him back. I was very excited at first but now I'm not so sure. I got the message on Sat. and gave her a call. She would not tell me a price just that she had another offer and wanted me to make an offer. She just said that he was to tall for her to ride with her son. Then she stated that she would be interested in trading for one of my mares that me son rides. This mare is only 2" shorter??? then I got another message stating that she needs me to make an offer today as she has the other offer and is going to take it if I do not offer higher. Now She just sent another one stating she will list him on Craigslist or take the other offer unless I make one. Is it just me or does this all sound "fishy"? I really liked this horse (he was my favorite) but he is now 15years old and I have no idea what has been done with him in the last 5 years and I was unable to get any info from her. Should I just say "No" I can not look at him for a couple of weeks as I work and then the kids have sports all week and I leave for Jamaica next week.
  8. Prayers And Good Thoughts, Please...

    Congrats, I am a RN, and the Director of Care Delivery at a nursing/rehab facility. Our CNA's (or CENA's as they are called in Michigan) are the ones that really make a difference. The work they do is hard but they really do get a lot of appreciation. Good luck with your new job, I'm sure you will love it.
  10. Prayer Requests For Today

    You can pray for my as I start my new position at work tomorrow. I want to do a great job and help my residents but I am very nervous about not being good enough. Also my Dad is having shoulder surgery tomorrow as well. This will be the second attempt as last week they realized in the O.R. that he was to big for the sling and then cancelled his surgery. He has been off work since Sept. and my parents are really hurting for money now they found out that his insurance runs out at the end of the month. Thank you for posting this. This is a good way for all of us to know what people need prayers for.

  15. What Would Your Dream Job Be?

    I found out on Monday that I got the new job. I will now be the Director of Care Delivery at work. This has been my dream job that I have been working towards. They pulled me off the floor and filled all my shifts so I start the new position tomorrow. I will have to go to lower WI. for some additional training in the near future as well. I am so happy.
