Thursday, June 18, 2009 just goes on and on my friend...

Of course since I put that as my title I'm going to have that silly song in my head all day. Okay here's the lyrics so that anyone reading this can be annoyed by it as well.
This is the song that never ends.
It just goes on and on my friend.
Some people started singing it not knowing what it was,
and they'll continue singing it forever just because,
This is the song that never ends.
It just goes on and on my friend
(and you just sing it over and over again).
That's pretty much how the whole month of June has felt like to me. I think it's partly due to this A & P class I'm in. The teacher talks and talks and talks...then sleeps...and then talks some more. I would say he lectures, but he doesn't. He reads a bit from the text or PowerPoint's and then goes off on what he calls "rabbit trails" on a subject that usually is not related to the topic or chapter we are suppose to be going over. Today wasn't so bad I guess. He still stayed off topic more then on, but at least he was talking about his hip replacement and rheumatoid arthritis and the chapter we did today was on joints so hey that does go together somewhat.
A few people dropped the class after the first week or two, some only show up on lab days, and a few are talking about taking the course over in the fall because they feel like they haven't learned a thing.
I've learned some but since I've had A & P once before this is more like a refresher. The other A &P didn't transfer is the only reason I'm taking this one. Only two more weeks left and it'll be over. This weekend I've gotta study my arse off and try to pull an 'A' on Mondays test because I blew this last Mondays test. My own fault, I got mixed up and studied the wrong reference plates.
Well on the home front, it's hot. June came in and decided to quickly remind everyone what summer is like in Memphis, hot and sticky. We've had highs in the 90s or near 90 so far this month. Right now it's 93 with a heat index of 106 (I really hope my hubby is remembering to take breaks and drink fluids). Tomorrows high is 97. Up till this week, we've had lots of rain including a couple bad storms of which 4,000+ people in the Memphis area are still out of power a week later. No power and high temps, I really hope people are checking on their neighbors.
My two oldest are still visiting grandparents in Mo. Hubby is gonna do the switch on Sunday and the two youngest get their chance to visit. It's been quiet(er) with out my daughter around. She is usually the instigator for every little argument around here. I wouldn't change her for the world though. She just won't let anyone walk over her, and I hope that stays.
Anyway guess I'm gonna get off here for a bit and start a load of dishes or do something that may be called housework. I need my oldest son's ability to make it look like I'm working real hard without doing a single thing. I haven't quite figured out how he pulls it off so well.
Have a great day and stay cool
