Nurse Betty BScN (cand): Happy Mother's Day

Nurse Betty BScN (cand)

I am a 36 year old mother of 2. I entered university in 2005 for the BScN program but had no idea what a roller coaster ride it would be. My other interests are boating, cottaging, gardening, sitting, doing nothing, vegging and of course hard core belly button contemplating.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. I went to the cottage this weekend and spent the weekend spring cleaning, but it is all worth it because shortly summer will start and I will plant myself at the cottage for the whole darn summer (yippee).
I spent some time with my mother and sisters which was great. I wish my mother would quit smoking though. It drives me crazy, she and her husband ( >: | ) both smoke like chimneys, they refuse to quit or slow down and would you believe this weekend Morty (nickname of new dad) actually tried to tell me that all the medical data that proves without a shadow of a doubt that smoking leads to MANY health complications is all propaganda. He actually used those words, propaganda. He told me that they are trying to brain wash me at nursing school. This is a man who's first wife died of lung cancer!!!seriously. I find it so frustrating because I know that my mother has emphysema (undiagnosed) because no one coughs like that in the morning just 'cause, and my father died of lifestyle related complications and I don't want to lose her prematurely too, but what can I do, she's a 65 year old person with all of her faculties, there is nothing that anyone can do unless she wants to quit. Oh well.
Mother's day for me was a bit of a bust. The husband stayed home because he had to work and the anchors didn't remember so there was no warm and fuzzy wake up to breakfast in bed this morning. In fact we just returned home from the cottage, husband still at work (I miss him) and so I am waiting for the chinese food to arrive. girl-anchor complained that we are having chinese, she wants to know why I'm not making pot-roast because it is Sunday.
Oh well, hope everyone's mother's day is sweet. I am going to make the anchors watch a family movie with me later. As usual though we are only 3/4 of a family. I wish The Husband had a regular job, miss him and I know he probably misses us.
Thanks for reading
