UPDATE on my Interview @ Einstein Medical Center

So, I started off not having a good morning yesterday and told myself to be strong for the interview. I got there a 1/2 hr early (which I never get anywhere early) and had lots of thinking time on my hands. Once I got into the hospital, I realized that I was back in one of those scary places, the kind that I had just left 2 1/2 weeks ago when my father passed away. I ofcourse felt the "elephant" that periodically has been sitting on my chest since that day. I interviewed with the Director of Radiology & a teacher, who is a friend of the family (so I know she explained to the Director before I came in) I made it most of the way through my interview and then the tears started, which I couldn't stop. The Director said she understood since her husband had just passed away recently and not to apologize. A few more questions later and my interview was done, at that point a student came by to take me for a tour of the hospital. All & all, I think it went well but we will see come March!!!

Bucks County Courier Times

William Graham Mount always had the body of a power athlete.
He stood about 5 foot 9 inches, weighed on the plus side of 250 pounds and could really throw a softball. He played the game all his life.
A graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School, Class of 1970, he played football and baseball and wrestled in school.
“If he was taller, he probably could have been a pro football player,” his wife of 22 years, Patricia, said. “He was a very good defensive tackle and had played semipro football when he was a young man.”
He had been employed for 20 years by USX Fairless Works and pitched in the steel mill's softball league for many years.
“Bill, who was in his early 30s, once pitched against the King and His Court with Eddie Feigner,” she said. “That's a four-man softball team that never loses. Feigner got mad at him, because Bill was able to pitch by throwing the ball between his legs, just like Feigner does. Feigner told him to knock it off, and said, "This is my show, not yours.' ''
Mr. Mount was playing softball in his 40s; into his 50s he started coaching and coached a men's fast-pitch team and a girls' travel softball team in Bristol Township. He also umpired softball for about 10 years.
Mr. Mount, a lifelong resident of the Newportville section of Bristol Township who was born in Philadelphia, died suddenly on Jan. 11 of cardiac arrest at the age of 55.
After working at USX, he was employed for about eight years by Bristol Township in the park and recreation department, and for the last year worked as a client care worker with Woods Services in Langhorne.
One son and four daughters survive Mr. Mount, and this is the second marriage for him and his wife.
“Bill was a great husband, he was a giver; he was funny, made me feel secure, and I never had to worry about anything,” she said.
Dennis Sylvestre of Middletown, a friend of Mr. Mount, said, “My daughter Tracy was fortunate to have Coach Bill work with her at an early age. He not only taught her a lot about pitching but instilled a passion for the game as well as fine-tuning her skills.
“Bill was a man large in stature, with an even bigger heart, and a very quiet demeanor. He would do anything for a friend or one of his girls. I am truly blessed to have known Bill and to have been his friend. We are going to miss Coach Bill.”

School for Radiology

Tomorrow is my interview at Einstein Medical Center for Radiology School.
I am not really nervous yet but I'm sure I will be in the morning.
So much "bad" has gone on in my life in the past few months that I hope this is a "good" thing!
I guess we will see in March if I get accepted or not.

This weekend was "Girls weekend" again at Tracy's sisters house. It was only 5 of us but it was a nice, peaceful & relaxing time that I definately needed. This was the only picture I got all weekend! It's the view from the 2nd story porch, across the bay at the Borgata in Atlantic City.

6/6/52 - 1/11/08

God saw you getting tired And a cure was not to be So He put His arms around you And whispered 'Come with Me.' With tearful eyes We watched you suffer And saw you fade away Although we loved you dearly We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating Hard working hands at rest God broke our hearts to prove He only takes the best. It's lonesome here without you We miss you more each day Life doesn't seem the same Since you've gone away. When days are sad and lonely And everything goes wrong We seem to hear you whisper 'Cheer up and carry on.' Each time we see your picture You seem to smile and say 'Don't cry, I'm in God's keeping We'll meet again someday.'
R.I.P Daddy..I love you and miss you!!

Cowar (color)

This is a picture that Gyllyan drew for me, she told me it was my Slinky (my blanket) but it looks more like fish to me!
Although, it is alot better than the scribble she usually does. I guess since she will be 3 next week, she is slowing starting to change from a baby to a little girl!!!

Dress up

For Christmas my parents bought Gyllyan this Princess dress up box..I thought she would love it but really she could care less about it until tonight, I walked out into the living room and she had Tinkerbell wings on so ofcourse, I made sure to dress her up as the other princesses so I could take pictures (it would have looked alot betther without her PJ's on but I didn't want to push my luck!)
