Thanks for asking...overall pretty poorly.  My stepmom's health is failing due to stage 4 cancer, her pain is getting to the point of them considering putting her on morphine.  I feel like I am a failure at my job, and my house has more unfinished projects than I care to count.  I tried weight watchers, lost 50 pounds...had a few bad weeks and put it all back on.

I should be thankful for all of the blessings in my life, but in the end I seem to only be able to focus on the negatives.

I've been alright I guess. My professional life is interesting, my son is growing by leaps and bounds, and while my relationship with his mom is rocky sometimes, right now things are pretty good.

The only thing that really sucks is not seeing my other son (LONG story - I miss him every day though frown ) and money. Money is tight.

Doing well, seem to be shooting up the career stuff at work. Getting fun and interesting projects. Deadlines are tight and the work is challenging but slowly making things work. Also started the amazing process of finding a house. Amazing in that all the people that I know that have been looking for houses around here has been an act of frustration.

Doing pretty well.  Kids are growing up too fast but doing well in school.  Kids are learning to rope and ride better every week as well.  Wife is doing well, team roping and teaching.  Football is going well, won our last game 46-0 so no complaints there and the kids are learning to be a team now instead of a bunch of individuals.  Professionally, what can I say...they are Jr. High kids.  Hormones with legs.  We teach them as best we can and hope some of it sticks.

Looking at a new car for the wife, something small as a communter, since we have been using the chevy for the last couple of years and it isn't bad (17mpg) but could be much better with the new cars out there 35mpg min for looking.

So...no complaints on my end...going so well in fact that I am constantly looking towards the sky watching for that foot to fall..

And my wife loves playing GW2 with me so all is good!

Hope everyone elses is good or getting better.

Overall, pretty awesome.  Work is predictably work, but everything else is awesome.  Like I am.

Things are fairly good, but my professional life is dragging me down. For months I've been applying to jobs all over the country, and haven't even got so much as a phone call in return. I finally did get a call back for what would have been a dream job, or at least a step in the right direction. I had a phone interview that I thought went well but was told that they were reviewing internal candidates, which sent up a red flag that I probably wouldn't get the job. Still, the guy said he would give me a call one way or another and to email him with any questions. Several weeks later and no response from him, and no reply to my email.

In the meantime, I've run out of work at one of my jobs. There always seems to be at least 1 or 2 days a week where there is nothing for me to do so I stay at home and feel like a failure at life.

Thankfully, almost everything else is going good right now.

We adopted a newborn boy last month, my sister is getting married in November, and I remain employed and healthy.  All things considered, I can't complain!

So how you doing?

Ridiculously busy, ridiculously tired, but ridiculously proud.  Pharmacy school has been no modest challenge with 8 classes, exams/quizzes every single day of the week (quite literally), organizational responsibilities with the AzPA, APhA, NCPA, and SSHP, class president tasks, responsibilities, and additional efforts, extracurricular training (health screening, immunization, and poisons/toxics training just to name a few), student council tasks, and professional fraternity rush currently going on.  But, there is an inherent sense of pride in pursuing the profession, taking advantage of all possible activities available, earning the position of class president for the entire pharmacy class of 2016, working with other healthcare students as part of a newly-founded organization dedicated to improving interprofessional efforts, and making a noticeable mark in such a prestigious program.

My only gripe is living 100 miles from my wife and only seeing her once per month, if that.  Well, that and the inherent lack of sleep associated with a demanding curriculum and lofty goals.  Lately the three hours per night I've had time for has been far short of enough.

But, these minor sacrifices are more than worth the rewards associated with pursuing my dream position of a clinical pharmacist.  The feeling of pride couldn't have been more palpable today as our class tried on and ordered our white coats for our rotations next semester. 

We're not pharmacy students.  We're student pharmacists.

kind of stuffed up and feeling a bit gassy, but I supposed that makes the former a blessing.  figure a double shot of Nyquil followed up by a Sam Adam's Octoberfest chaser or four should help.

ever had Nyquil on the rocks?  just the thing if you're feeling sociable too. 

hep, thanks for posting the first picture that came to mind when I read the title. 

as for things on this front, work is a manageable pile of junk, but damn if I don't end up far busier than they think I am.  part of the problem when your supporting a team who aren't tech savvy and have shown little progress in retaining knowledge outside of the job's written requirements.  Also a bit of a pita when the people who I am to rely on are quick to drop my requests for assistance. 

Daughter is in first grade while my boy is going through pre-school and both my wife's and my schedule leave little time for each other.  at least we aren't at each other's neck or anything.
