It's been awhile, lots of new news...

Surgery stuff -- I'm almost finished with my pre-op list, only thing left is meeting with the surgeon and lab work a week before the surgery.  That list seemed so daunting at first, but now not so much! I had the pre-op class last night, it was interesting, all straight forward, nothing to freak me out.  I'm a bit mad at myself because not only did I not lose that 20 pounds I was hoping to before the surgery, I gained an extra 7.  School is kicking my bum! I don't have any energy or time to get exercising or planning my food better.  I think part of me is also doing that 'last meal' thing....except that 'last meal' has been happening for the past 5 months.....

Work -- well right now, I'm a school nurse but follow only one child.  This is not a fun job. Great kid, nice family, but it's not the kind of nursing I want to do.  So I started looking for my own school clinic for next year and I got one!  I'll be working for a year round elementary school starting next July.  The staff that I've met so far seem fabulous.  They laughed at my jokes during the interview so they obviously have a sense of humor.  I meet everyone in May during a seminar. The principle wants everyone on board for a 7 habits for success for children and leadership thing. Sounds fantastic and I'm so glad that she wants me as part of the school team and doesn't see me as a separate entity because I'm not part of education, just educational support.

School -- it's crunch time, I need to be finished with my graduate project in the next couple of weeks.  I have three more weeks of this class, then my final class.  I'm going to leave for the weekend and crunch this stuff out...if I work from home there will be too many distractions. May 28th can't get here soon enough!

Personal life -- please, like I have one.  I chauffeur the children to their various sports, I cook (sort of), clean (kind of) and pretty much yell at people to be quiet so I can finish a paper.  Have I mentioned I can't wait until May 28th?

Okay, will check in later....maybe with something really deep....but probably not.


  1. Hahaha! I use the same yardstick to judge a persons "funniness", I ask myself this question 'do they think I am funny??' Is the answer is yes, then they must be funny too!!

  2. Good luck on your surgery. You seem to be very busy! Make sure to take a second for yourself!


  3. So busy! Congrats on the new job!

  4. My daughter is thinking about being a nurse. Are you getting your MSN? Well I relate to the personal life!! Good luck on your surgery!!
