Monday is here, much to my despair.

I hate Mondays. I slept pretty poorly last night, not quite sure why, but I was up a whole lot. I also ran late to school...I got up early to get there early. I was up at 0730, then went and plugged my Mac into my printer to print my NPR, reference page, med notes, and article then headed to the kitchen. I got myself a bowl of Cherrios and sat out on the porch while the dogs played for only 10 minutes, headed in and recopied my schedule from Thursday and Friday as well as my patient reports from those clinical days. I took a quick break and ran into the study to check on my NPR the times I performed my neuro assessments only to find that my printer ran out of ink and all my pages were scribly. I then had to change the cartridge, and then reprinted everything. Needless to say, I didn't get to shower and didn't get out of the house until 0830. My NPR had to be handed in my 0900 on the dot or I failed.

I got there ON TIME! Only to get to class to have Meghan ask me if I finished my sim lab...what sim lab? Oh the one due at 1100...crap! I did it throughout Rita's lecture on...I think it was on obesity. Whatever, lol. Once I got out of my two hours of lecture, I enjoyed sim lab as always, Margaret is fabulous and oh so tolerant of our goofiness. We got out a little earlier and Meghan, Bruce and I headed to Chiles for lunch...yummy-cheese fries! I then headed to Walmart and purchased, AA bateries, stuff to make my coupon book, a bind to transfer my notes from NP2 into and...oh yeah! And fabric to make a sleeve for my camera strap because I fell in love with all the ones posted on etsy but being a full time student and trying to be frugal I didn't want to spend $25 on it. I made my own tonight...yay me! I will post some pictures of it tomorrow, it is drying now.

I also talked to Keri for about a hour and a half. I love Keri, I miss her. I wish we lived closer to one another. We were talking about all her wedding fun. Alex and Ker are wearing white, then the maids are in black. Alex requested to wear something with carolina blue in it, so we decided on a hancheirf in that color and Keri's flower bouquet will be wrapped in that color ribbon. Then since the maids are in black to distinguish, me-her best friend-from everyone else, I will get to pick out my own style of dress...let the fun begin! I am so excited for her.

Then as for Phillip and I, we have had a rough few days. We've bickered, picked on each other, and nagged. Stupid I know, but I don't know how to stop it. I am going back to reading my book because that for whatever reason gives me patience for everything and gives me better insight. With his Dad being so sick it takes so much out of him. I am sure that even without talking to his Dad or any kind of interaction, I am sure he still thinks about it. The emotional rollercoaster for him takes so much out of him. I wish I could be more supportive. Anyways, keep the suggestions to a good relationship coming. I appreciate everything.

Oh yeah, I am also posting two pictures. The first is a new self portrait I needed for photo club and the second is one of Roman Noodle. We were in my room and I asked him if Papa was coming home soon (which obviously he wans't...I felt bad afterward) and this is what he did until I offered him a treat. Enjoy!

I could never handle nursing school. It is definitely not for me! I really hope things get better between the two of you soon. I am sure he is having a really difficult time with his father. The pictures are gorgeous by the way!

You are busy! The end result is so worth it though. Every couple goes through this, but it doesn't make it any easier at the time, does it? Stay strong!
