I am a mom to the most beautiful little boy, a wife to a wonderful Hubby, a fur mommy to a crew of fur babies and a pediatric oncology nurse to some of the best kiddos on the planet. Spending time with my family is the best thing in the world. I couldn't ask for anything more then what I have already been blessed with.
Anyways, on a positive note. I went to a concert last night with Katie. We had an awesome time. It was an orchestra performance and it was wonderful! Here is a picture form the two of us there. We had a good time, it was nice catching up.
So today is Sunday, I wish they listed longer. I got up this morning, took they kids out and headed back to bed. I got up, ate breakfast and went on an interview. There is a woman looking for a nanny for Mondays and Tuesday for a month and it would be a nice source of extra income for me.
Anyways, I plan on heading to Borders for a little while to study, well I think I am going to. I am not sure, I don't really want to, but I do need to get some studying in. I want to do the study guide and the quiz again. I need to also get done all those hormone note cards tomorrow. I need to memorize them all. We'll see how well that goes.
Hopefully this week will be better than last week, I highly doubt it since I have 2 anatomy exams, a micro exam, a sociology exam due, as well as a chemistry exam...someone save me. I am also hoping that Phillip and I have a better week. I desperately need us to. I have a terrible feeling that if we do not pick it up this week it will be the end of us. We nearly broke up twice this weekend. I feel like it is all me that needs to change. He thinks I have a terrible opinion of him and whenever he does something stupid I turn it into a vicious attack on me when it is just a stupid mistake. I don't know how to change it, but if I don't he is going to leave - rightfully so. I am just at a loss as to what to do. Any suggestions would help.
This is my love. Mr. Roman Noodle, makes me so happy. I have been having a pretty crappy week, Roman had one of his "episodes" yesterday and now has an appointment at Earth Vets tomorrow, but no matter what I am upset for, I curl up with Roman at night and he makes things better. I just hope everyone is lucky enough to have a safety, like this.
School is tough, but almost done. Work is monotonous, but hopefully there is only 3 more months of it, then hopefully I will be in school for nursing. God Willing.
I applied for a part time nanny job. Someone is hiring for a nanny needed for Monday and Tuesday from 9:30am-4:00pm and only from May 19-June 10. That is only 4 weeks which is only 8 days of work. I think it would be worth it for me to do it if she offers me the position. Any extra money is greatly appreciated.
Anyways, Phillip is coming up to GVille tonight until tomorrow night. I didn't expect him to be up at all because his parents are here and they needed his help, but they don't need him this weekend so he is coming up. However, our weekend is cut short because he has to work on Sunday. No big deal though, because it is better than nothing and I have studying to do anyways.
Yesterday I was at the dog park and ran into Megan Demerich. We knew each other from home, from Middle and High school. We were never really friends more like acquaintances, but it was great seeing her. We exchanged numbers and are going to try to hang out. She wants to try the rock gym so it would be great if I had a rock gym buddy. We'll see.
I guess that is really it for now, I have a new book with me, a couple of magazines, Chem homework and A&P to study today, so I should be busy. Not to mention, Cooper stayed home with me today and we are working on potty training. Fingers crossed, he is in big boy underwear and we have the timer set for every 30 minutes to sit on the potty. If anyone has any words of encouragement or advice about things that have worked for them, I would be greatly appreciative of it.
So today is a work day...Jackson had a rough start to the morning but then took a great nap. Which means, I took a great nap. I picked up Cooper early from school and then picked up Robbie. Coop is napping now, Jackson is hanging with me, and Robbie is in the playroom reading. Hopefully after I feed the littlest man at 3ish he will go back to sleep.
I have made all my hormone note cards, and once he goes back to sleep I will let the big ones out back to play and I will study them. I have a study group tonight and that should be good because both Sara and Margie have A's in the class. I brought Nood with me to work so that way when I get home I can just feed the kids, and then unfortunately for Super she will be locked up again, but Nood will then only be locked up for a little while. Tomorrow morning I get to sleep in, which will be nice for the kids. I don't have to be at lecture until 11 and then I should be home no later then 2 because I need to pick up more of Nood's food.
On another note, there was a job listing on Craig's list for some barn help and a free lease on a horse for it. I emailed them and hopefully that will pan out. I think it would be nice to be outside some over the summer. We will see if they are willing to work around my current hours...we'll see.
So...Tuesday is here, another day of classes have come and gone. I had a microbiology exam today, it went alright. I am ready for the semester to end and I can feel myself quickly fading. After my exam, I went to Jodi's office to go over some of the hormones that are on the up coming exam. We finished going over my hormone chart and then ran through the repro study guide. She kindly stayed late for me and we got the whole thing done. I feel great about the information. I have a study group with Margaret and Sara tomorrow night at 8pm because Margaret is taking it early because she needs to focus on her Calc exam next week.
Here is my line up for upcoming exams:
4/19- Chemistry: Exam #4 4/22- Anatomy: Repro and Endocrine 4/24- Anatomy: Lab practical Micro: Exam #4 4/26- Chemistry: Exam #5 and Lab Final 4/28- Chemistry: Class Final Sociology: Exam #4 5/1- Anatomy: Final Micro: Final
Major yucko; however, that means there is 16 days left and then a summer of freedom. Woo-hoo!
Hello everyone. My goal is to be good updating this thing. I figure since everyone is graduating and moving to different ends of the states this would be the best way for everyone to stay in touch and know what is going on.
I think I am going to be the sole remaining person in Gainesville, everyone is moving on to bigger and better things...I am moving, just slower than everyone else. I like it here, most of the time. I bought a house here, and will (fingers crossed) hopefully get into Santa Fe's nursing school for the fall. I have no idea what I will do if I don't get in.
Work has been pretty good. I had a week off last week and it was amazing. I love the boys and the Collins but I am tired of this job, I have been doing the nanny thing for a year and a half and am just ready to move on. I will definitely keep working for them on the side once I am in nursing school. You know, football games, weekend dinners, etc. The extra money is going to be needed. Poor college student here I come...woo-hoo?
Phillip landed a job working for the Ritz Carton Club in Orlando, which is great for him. Being 2 hours away isn't bad most of the time, but I do think it is going to get harder...we'll see. Hopefully not. We are planning on going apartment hunting for a place in Orlando for him this coming weekend. It will be nice for him to finally move out of Jessica's house (especially since she moved in with her boyfriend). Phillip and I aren't going to be spending the next two weekends together, his parents are in town and are making him do stuff around the house to get it ready to sell this summer. I think they are going to have a terrible time selling it, I mean the market is terrible, and there have been homes for sale on the same street (in a cookie cutter neighborhood) at least since Christmas. I hope for Phillip's parents sake they are able to sell it because Jessica and Doug plan on buying and moving this summer regardless.
So Keri is in Mexico right now, teaching and finishing up her final semester as an undergraduate student. She will be there for 4 weeks, come back to Pennsylvania, graduate 3 days later, and then 4 days after that hit the road for sunny South Florida. She is planning on stopping and visiting me and the furkids the third weekend in May, which I am super stoaked about. She hasn't seen the house yet, and I haven't seen Alex in over a year and a half. Her graduation party is May 31 and that should be fun. I plan on heading down south for 5 days or so. )I think I am planning on sleeping at her house for most if not all of it, because I have no bed in my parent's house. :( They moved my whole bedroom set up here...hm...) Anyways, Keri is planning on moving to South Carolina to teach and start her life as an adult. I completely support that decision because we will only be 5 hours away as opposed to 15 or something stupid like that.
Who knows where I'll end up, but I have like 8 years or something unheard of left here...
