Megs, I do this to myself as well. I made some stupid mistakes on my og chem exam last week, things I totally know. in my defense, cell phones kept going off during test taking
In the past, I think I did well by being smart, now I think I am doing okay because I am working really hard. Things change when you have kids. That said, being very very structured about my study habits helps.

I'm the only person I know IRL to nurse this long!
Towsonmama, wow, that sounds hard. I hope that this is the advent of a position that better fits with your family.
Dana, yep, winter rural lonliness is a real and palpable thing that is not lessened by having your dh around all the time. After 6 years of it, I realized a few things: I need people. I need adult interaction on a regular basis with someone other than dh. If I am spending too much time in isolation, I start to get weird and fearful about the world. And I hear you on the dh stuff. I find it very frustrating to hear complaints of lack of money, when nothing is actually being done to change things (ie, looking for even a pt job)
Jaygee, We will miss you! I have been thinking about Lent, and the computer came to mind, but I'm also thinking about sugar...
Callie, I kind of feel the same way about voting for a woman! I agonized about the lack of female presidents when I was in elementary school, so I feel a little honor bound to vote for her now.
Wendy, yay for sleep through the night! I am trying to muster up enough energy for us to do dairy-free to see if it is related to Nora's Neverending stuffy-Nose.
RR: still resting. perhaps I'll run tomorrow.
