The last post makes me kind of sad

Hello Everyone,
What advice would I give a person on a scientific paper. Well for my first piece of advice I would give it would be that once you decide on a topic do not change your mind, not only once but several times. That can really cause issues for you. Another thing is be sure to read through all your information, even on topics you think you are not finding debatable information on if you read through every piece of infomation carefully, you can find what you need. I feel I have become a better writer. Had I stuck with the original topic, I would have done a lot better on my final. However I chose to switch my topic, and not only once, therefor I suffered in the end trying to "throw" together a paper. That made my end project bad. I want to thank all of you again for sharing all your hard work. I hope you all have a great journey in your degree plans with Kaplan. Thank you professor, great class.

Its finally done YAY!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone,
I am so glad that this paper is over with. I have been more nervous about this paper than any other I have written so far since I have been in school. I sure hope I atleast get a descent grade on it.I do like challenges I have to say. I think I do better under stress. But this has been a little more stressful than normal lol. I am sure that I am making myself way more stressed than need be though, for this has been a great class. Thank you all for all your input. I wish you luck on your finals and on your future journeys here at Kaplan.

Writing about fibromyalgia

I am writing about fibromyalgia in our comp class because I have recently been diagnosed with it. I am really scared because it has made so many changes in my life. I am not the same person I used to be. I have always been happy go lucky and never let anything really get me down. However, I am in constant pain now. Nothing ever seems to help it. I have tried a couple of medications. I have to say I have never taken medication before so I am a whimp when it comes to them lol. But they dont really work. I feel some times like I am taking meds just to take them, and I dont like that. I really hope that soon they can get me on something that helps. I understand that nothing will ever take the pain away, I just want something to help calm it. I need to be getting more than three hours of sleep at night. By the time I do fall asleep its mearly because I am sooooo tired that I cant do anything but fall asleep. I have seen my family doctor about this, who sent me to a specialist. I cant afford to continue to see the specialist, its so costly even with insurance. So I am not sure what to do next. Do I go back to my family doc. I dont even know anymore. Sometimes I tell myself that maybe I just need to deal with the pain, learn to except it as part of my life, but I am not sure how to do that. It is really bad sometimes, when the weather changes omg its really bad. I just wanted to share this with you guys in hopes that maybe someone knows what I am going through and can help me understand it. I am hoping doing all the research with my paper that I will find some answers too.
Thanks for listening,

wow what a week

Hello everyone,
I am writing this blog later than I should be. I have had a very hard week. We were so crazy at work this week, and worked mega hours getting ready for a special open. I am not sure if I am coming or going today , lol. However, I guess we will have those challenges even though we do online classes. I am so disapointed in myself for letting this all get the best of me. I havent done that before, of course I also have never worked as many hours along with everything else in my life. I just hope that this week I will be back to normal and will have no set backs because of this week. All we can do is look ahead and keep moving on. Thank you all for listening. Have a great rest of your week and an awsome weekend.

My birthday present...and blogging lol

Hello class,
I am so late on doing this blog. It took me forever to figure this blogging stuff out. I however think I finally got it figured out. I thank you all for being patient with me. I have to say I really like this class. It has been fun learning something very new to me.
I decided for my bday which was on the 25th of Oct. that I wanted my husband to build me two pantries in my kitchen and a new closet in the hallway. See we moved from a 13 room house to a modular with 8 rooms. Well at the time we had two and a half kids and they were all little. So the house seemed sooooo big. Come to find out however, as our family grew and another couple of kids were added, the house is not big at all, lol. But , I am greatful that I have a home. Just needed more storage space, because we dont have an attic or basement. So this past weekend my husband built all the things that I asked for and they are wonderful.
However, in order for him to build these I had to move all the things that were in the areas that he was building. Well that didnt seem like it was going to be a big deal. Boy was I ever wrong. My house is a disaster. Of course I am still working on , because I have school, kids school, and work. I just keep telling myself once its all put away and oraganized I am going to be the happiest girl in the world.
I know that all things come together as they are suppose to , even if we have to give a little more time to happen lol. Hope you are all having a great week. Talk to you all soon.

Ok so I thought I could figure this out easily lol

I am new to this whole blogging thing. When I seen that is what we were going to do in this class, I though oh wow I can do this. Well it wasnt as easy as it sounds. I am really having a hard time getting the class added to my readings. I am not sure what in the world I am doing wrong lol.
However thought I would let all of you that have figured this out know a little about me. I am Sherri Kidd. I have been married for 18 years to the best husband in the whole world. I have four beautiful children. They are so much fun. I have three boys, the oldest is 17, next one is 12, next one is 8..soon to be 9, and then I have one baby girl who is 4. They really are great kids. We live on a miniature farm, the farm isnt mini, but the animals are. They really are a lot of fun. We currently have 7 mini horses, 3 mini donkeys, 6 mini goats, and are working on other mini animals.
I have to say with all this comes a very busy life. I am not sure I can remember what the word bored means. I havent been bored in I cant tell you how long lol.
I homeschool my four children, I work full time, I am in school, gymnastics for baby girl, 4H for the boys, and omg well I am sure you all know its just crazy around here. But I love it. I do sometimes wish time didnt pass by so quickly. It seems like my oldest son was just born and he will be 18 in July....which I am not looking forward to at all....I just cant imagine my life with no kids in my house.
Well hope I didnt bore you all to death. Look forward to reading about all of you.
