Time to Breathe

Ahhhhh, things are starting to slow down......finally. End of the semester is almost here. Just one more week. How is that going, you ask? Well, I'll probably be repeating most of this semester over in the fall. It's ok. No pity. I've come to grips with it all. Nursing school is by far the hardest thing I've ever accomplished. It might take me longer to get the degree now, but no'll be mine eventually.

My job. Well, I've been there almost 4 and 1/2 months. So far, I've remembered to remove all the staples. I'm a natural. Enough said.

The house guests are all gone. The Raging Hormone (a.k.a. my little brother) had a blast this time around. The Tiger took him to a gun show and shooting. Plus, mom let him bring the Playstation 3. So, he was happy. Oh, he taught me something new. Did you know that only female mosquitoes suck blood? There must be A LOT of female mosquitoes out there. Hmmmm, this I never knew.

I'm going to Colorado. Yep, that's right. My best friend Jaime had a baby (little girl Jacy) and I get to go and visit them! The Tiger bought tickets for me and Missy to go for my birthday. He said I needed a break after the semester was over and he knew I'd love to go see the baby and that I'd probably never spend the money on myself to take a trip (he's right). I am sooooooooo excited. Jaime and I have been best friends since we were 6. This is her first baby. So, you can imagine what it's going to be like. And it's hard now that she lives across the country these days. I'll be crying all week. When I had Missy, we were too young to get all emotional and stuff. You learn to appreciate different things as you get older. Where was I? Oh yeah. So, in 11 days I leave for VACATION!

Oh, and I need to CONGRATULATE Sheryl....she just had her first baby girl and she is GORGEOUS. I love her name. Just love it.

Other than that, I just truly miss blogging with everyone. It's so hard to find the time. I am hoping things will get a little caught up on my 3 week break from school. 3 WHOLE weeks. How awesome is that???

A pic of Missy, because it's been awhile. Here she is winning 1st place with her cheerleading team. She also took 1st place in the individual jump off.

alright! Have fun on your little vacation and enjoy!
You have such an awesome attitude about your schooling and reaching that degree. I love how you continue to speak and be positive, that is the key! Keep it up and it is yours, I agree, that degree will be in your grasp before you know it!
Happy to see you found the time to blog. Whenever you have time, I know I always check, I like finding out how you and Missy and Tiger are doing!
That Tiger is a good guy, of course, you already knew that!

I love Colorado too. I would have moved there at one time in my life but didn't want to leave family. I am so proud of you for hanging in there with the nursing. You will have that degree before you know it. What an awesome thing Tiger did for you in getting you the tickets. You deserve it.
Congrats to your lovely little girl on getting 1st place...She is a doll.
