don't keep checking the mail...

I haven't been able to get it together (yet again this year) and put together any Christmas cheer...and by that I mean a Christmas card! I have been busy finishing up school, studying for the boards looking for a job etc. I fully intend to get my life together by next year.

I read a blog about people taking you off their mailing list if they don't get a card from you, PLEASE DON'T. I really do love getting all of them (which sounds really selfish). Maybe I could send out some 4th of July cards surely I can get a cute picture, choose a card, and get something out in 6 months. But then what picture would I use for the 2012 Christmas card...because we all know finding 2pictures is impossible! Especially when you have a verticle picture but want a horizontal card etc.

Yes I realize many of you probably pick out the card, color cordinate your outfits to the font, and get a professional portrait done. I don't think I will ever get it together enough to pull that off...but just know your effort doesn't go unnoticed!

So basically I am sorry! I hope that this doesn't spoil your holiday or take away from the joy of getting the mail this time of year. Look on the brightside Facebook has a whole new layout and you can just look at my timeline for the past 4 years instead.

goals for 2012

Get a job

Be a better friend

Loose 6 pounds

AND get a new fridge...this one if by chance Lowes wants to send it to me for free:


officially a nurse

Finally I graduated December 3rd, 2011. It was a Looooong road to get to this place. Over the past month or so I have been overwhelmed by thanksgiving for friends and family that have been such a huge support in this journey.

The day of graduation I felt a huge sense of accomplishment and also a huge sense of relief. I still have go get a job and pass the boards but the weight of daily assignments and projects and tests has been lifted.

I think I look rejuvenated?

Giles on the other hand got a horrible virus the afternoon of graduation and was therefore my first patient...hence why he looks not so hot.

Now it is time to get back to the books as I take the boards Thursday and lets just admit I have been a total slacker for the past week.


I know I promise to post and then don't. Please forgive me I have been a little busy. Not that I haven't had about a milion thoughts to share I just never seem to have the time to do it. OR I am afraid to start because I know I have no self control and will get sucked in for hours. I am working on some updates and in the mean time please accept my apology.

PS I did just join pintrest so I haven't been a complete slacker?
