when i need a break


when i need a break from school work and life in general, my little guy never disappoints. the other night we played War and then topped off the evening with me giving him an airplane ride. i haven’t laughed so hard in a long time.

we went to the house again today to check out the progress. it is going up fast. my favorite part was sitting in the backyard while james walked around and inspected everything.

he makes me smile.

so very busy.


as you can tell from the title, i have been so busy. i have had school every day, all day this week including two twelve hour clinicals at the CCU. i started out having clinicals at the ER and i absolutely loved it, but then after two weeks i got moved to a different hospital. so i had to start all over with getting to know people, getting to know my way around, getting used to all the alarms and (ahem) other sounds (and smells) at the CCU. after my first shift as soon as i got in the car to drive home, i started bawling. i was pissed that i got moved to a different unit, and i was just overwhelmed by everything.

i need to remember to just take it one day at a time. especially right now when i am so busy that i can’t even participate in an occasional ladies’ night with one of my favorite peeps.

the picture of me is of that first day when i got home from the CCU. red, splotchy face, frizzy hair, and no smile.

i’m lucky to have such a fantastic hubs who supports and loves me even when i cry over everything and snap at him for anything. thanks little guy. needless to say, the next day was a better day.

is it weird?

my dad sent me an email a few days ago. i have been so busy that i haven’t had a chance to look at it until today. it is a video of a five-year-old girl calling 911 for her dad. after the video was over i totally bawled like a baby. is that weird? maybe it’s from a combination of being completely frazzled and missing my beautiful niece (who is also five).IMG_2036 just look at my hair. that is the hair of one stressed out nursing student who is on the very brink of having a nervous meltdown.
