Nicole- how funny and ironic! Patrick once joked about me somehow being a long lost sibling or somehow otherwise related to your family.

It took me a few minutes (actually while I was driving it came to me) to figure out NFP charts. I laughed out loud when I figured it out. You made me laugh aloud, too. :D

A Gantt chart is a horizontal flow chart (so, technically, it could work as an NFP chart, too ;) ) of scheduling your time and activities. I requested R bring one home to me so that I could attempt to use it to schedule my day and sometimes I do my "homework" while sitting in bed at night.

Jeremy- just making the most of my time ;)

Nicole- check out the outfits on page 127 and 132. I think they are so cute. And have you noticed lean toward gold jewelry?

Posted by: Rae at January 28, 2005 06:09 PM

Oh, you two are going to get along famously.

Posted by: Patrick at January 28, 2005 08:11 PM

Nicole, tell Rae what your dream job is (Besides neonatal nursing. Nicole got accepted to nursing school today!)

Posted by: Patrick at January 28, 2005 08:12 PM

Congratulations, Nicole! :D

Neonatal nursing, hmmmm? I have thought seriously about being a "doula"- someone who coaches a woman through her labor is she desires to have a natural birth (however, am not an Anti-Meds Nazi, different situations necessitate different actions).

Perhaps you were somehow right, Patrick (and thanks for finally commenting on my blog ;p)

Posted by: Rae at January 29, 2005 09:55 AM

Pat and Rae- Thanks for the congrats! I am so excited (and relieved) that I was accepted! I have also thought about Labor and Delivery and Pediatric ICU. Definitely not Geriatrics...I can just go home for that (Aww, that was mean sorry).

Well, my OTHER dream job is to be a personal shopper, and that the rich lady I shop for would give me a certain amount of money to spend on myself everytime I shop for her! Sounds good, doesn't it? :-)

I will have to look at the pages you mentioned. I HAVE noticed the gold jewelry and am not too excited about it...my promise ring and engagement ring are white gold...it's just not going to work out. I don't like mixing yellow and white gold, ya know? What is a girl to do in this kind of situation?! ;-)

Oh my goodness, Nicole~ I can't believe it. We are cut from the exact same 100% cotton cloth!

I think that white gold and yellow gold can look really nice together- it just depends on the design. I have an 8mm wide barrel band and this year am getting a diamond [one carat, Emerald cut] (15 years) and I think I will go with platinum and then slip a small plantinum band underneath my original band to tie it all together.

Nicole- have you read the Shopaholic series?

Posted by: Rae at February 1, 2005 12:25 PM

That sounds like it will be really pretty. YOWZERS! A whole carat! :-)

I have not read the Shopaholic series...what is it? I really need to read more (at least something that isn't about triglycerols, ketones, or lipids). ;-)
