Hello Heather!! Thanks for the comment. I guess I'm not crazy. lol. Don't you just sometimes feel like you are? I had to scream in a pillow because I was soo frustrated. Does that sound wierd? I don't think its weird. Its better then hitting something or someone. I went to Core Member University. Thats exciting for me. I am gonna be on CORE if I figure out work stuff. Right now I have no saturdays I can quit and get a job somewhere else like say, kaiser, doing filing or something...or I can try to see if they will give mee saturdays off...or I can not have a job, which would suck. I don't know. Anyway, I hope all is well. I love you and God Bless,Catrina
