Tired....

So as my friend Michelle recently learned, I'm something of a party pooper these days.  I like to go to bed around this time (10pm and just later) and I like to sleep in (usually until around 9-10am).  I know, this is not really conducive to being alive and being part of the world, so on occasion I work on getting up earlier or staying up later trying to compensate for sleeping so much and being out of it so much of the time.  Funny thing, you would think with all that sleeping that I would feel well rested and ready to take on the world, but I don't.  Isn't that weird?!?  Well I think it is.
Spent most of today watching and caring for the children in my life.  Started off with my 1 of 2 weekly watching the Hicks kids while mama Tiff goes for her runs (she's a runner girl like that).  Then completed the babysitting with my little miss France-y pants and going to the park and going to the store and going to Auntie Meems house!  I had a great time today.  Ended the day by visiting my twinnie, Sarah, in the hospital and seeing baby Alec for the second day in a row.  Lucky enough he had a poopy diaper that his daddy Scott ended up changing.  Sometimes it's better to be the Auntie!
Short post, but at least ending with a song today.

Breathe In, Breathe Out-Mat Kearney
Breathe in, breathe out,
Tell me all of your doubts,
& Everybody bleeds this way,
Just the same.

Breathe in, breathe out,
Move on and break down,
If everyone goes away i will stay.

We push and pull,
& I fall down sometimes,
I'm not letting go,
You hold the other line.

Cause there is a light in your eyes, in your eyes.

Hold on hold tight,
From out of your sight,
If everything keeps moving on, moving on,
Hold on hold tight,
Make it through another night,
& everyday there comes a song with the dawn,
We push and pull and I fall down sometimes,
I'm not letting go,
You hold the other line.

Cause there is a light, in your eyes, in your eyes.
There is a light, in your eyes, in your eyes.

Breathe in, and breathe out.
Breathe in, and breathe out.
Breathe in, and breathe out.
Breathe in, and breathe out.

Look left look right,
To the moon in the night.
&; everything under the stars is in your arms.

Cause there is a light, in your eyes in your eyes.
There is a light, in your eyes, in your eyes.
There is a light, in your eyes, in your eyes.
There is a light, in your eyes, in your eyes.

Did It!!

Passed classes this semester, finished my 336 hours of clinical preceptorship time and also had an interview for an RN Residency position with labor and delivery.  It has been a busy few months, but I'm happy to say that I am now prepared to sit for my NCLEX and become a nurse.  Then it's just time to find a job, which hopefully won't be as difficult as everyone thinks it will be.  Now to celebrate with having a few weeks off.  I'm taking one of our teacher's suggestions and just relaxing as much as possible.  This will likely involve some house work that I've been neglecting, such as cleaning the bathrooms and organizing the desk and bookshelves.  I've also made it back to the gym which is a great thing AND tonight I'll be playing a soccer game...outdoors of course, in this gorgeous hot weather.  Summer sure made a late appearance, but at least it's here now.
Well, short post yet again, but my bff just got home and I think we're going to go have lunch!
Peace out!!

Over a month, really?

Aw fuck it, should I really be surprised.  This has got to be my most stressful quarter of school ever, and that's putting it mildly.  In addition to working almost 40 hours a week at the hospital along with occasionally being at the hotel for work and then also doing homework and studying....it feels like I've hardly caught a breath.  I keep telling myself, only about 1 1/2 more weeks to go and then I'll be better off.  Some time between classes will feel really nice after this hellish time frame.  Then it's on to the NCLEX and massive studying for that.  I know I'll pass, I'm not worried about that, but the testing itself...again stressful.
Super short post tonight, sort of tired and a little wiped out from all that sun today.  See ya on the dark side!
