WAKE UP!

Alright, that's it!

I'm going to start writing again.

I had a bit of a tough time finding time to blog as we bought the house, moved, tore out the kitchen, and remodeled, but now that's pretty much done (I say pretty much, because I still can't find my other black slingback mule... still some unpacked boxes in the basement!)

I'm still working at the Psych Hospital. I get along well with most of the people there, and have some good friends now. We have fun, and keep it interesting. We work well as a team, and you've got to have that when safety can be a concern. Work is always challenging and it's a new experience every day.

The full-time charge nurse position opened and I applied for it, but they hired someone from the outside. Up to this point I was only a fill-in charge nurse along with one other nurse and would rotate days. She has something like 25 years of nursing experience, but I'm not really seeing a difference from what was going on before. I made my own choice and decided that if I was going to wait around for a promotion I might be old and gray before it happened -SO- I started school again!!

I'm taking care of 15cr of prerequisites and hope to be able to start in the fall at The University. I say hope, because I'm applying pretty late. I expect to get in, but if that doesn't work I'll get in in Jan. I need 10cr of foreign language and I'm taking Spanish (yea!!) and I also needed Statistics, which I can take online (hmmm...). I'm super-duper-awesome-happy about going back to school even though the idea of now working full time and going to school in the evenings is a bit scary.

So what else is going on? My sister is coming from Florida to visit in September, and in August my family is going to Texas to meet my husband's family. I'll get to meet his mom and sisters finally after being with him for almost 7 years!

The house is improving a bit at a time, and we've made great strides in the yard, which was overgrown and hadn't been pruned back in at least 10 years. There are about 30 rhododendrons and tons of other trees, many I can't name. It was an amazing yard back in the day, but it sort of went wild and scrubby. Things look MUCH better - I'll probably post pics.

Anyway, I'm going to go barbecue some burgers now and take advantage of the beautiful weather. I'll write more soon about work and school and anything else I can think of that might be interesting.

Let me know if you're still reading....
