Baby Steps

Joel and I have had a long week. Not only are there a ton of things due this week, but we're both fighting something. Yuck. The good news is that Joel doesn't have to go into work any longer except for when there is an important meeting-- so he'll be home all day long with me!

I have an exam this afternoon-- my first one for the semester, and I'm freaking nervous!!! I'll let you know how it goes.

Getting Them Done

So today went way better than I had imagined it to be. It was actually pretty slow with not a ton to do. That was such a relief! So I have one more day of clinicals tomorrow and then I'm done for a week. Whew!

sick :(

I woke up sick today-- sore throat and cough. I skipped class this morning and managed to study for an exam that I have on Thursday for a little bit. Joel's been doing my laundry for me and it has been such a blessing to me. I spent the rest of my time watching a movie and napping in bed. With long days at clinical tomorrow, please pray that I will be able to get through them. I guess being on the postpartum floor on Wednesday, which I've been complaining is SO slow, will be a blessing this week. I'm so looking forward to Friday when I can crash for a little while!

Life As It Goes On

I have been having this daily battle: do I give into my feelings of being overwhelmed and stressed, or do I fight them? And if I choose to fight them, how long can I last?

So I've been trying to focus on the great things in my life that cause me so much joy. Like spooning with my husband in the morning, and sitting in my big comfy chair to read. :)

Yesterday was a good friend's birthday and 10 of us drove up to Denver to eat at the cheesecake factory. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera. Bummer. But I did order some very yummy tiramisu, and Joel and I talked to Kendyll's parents the whole time, playing our "adult roles" as Joel and I like to call them. Ha! No one's fooled by us trying to pretend that we're grown up.

I really want to write something, so y'all know that I'm alive, but I'm not sure what to say. Scanning my brain... nope, nothing to comment on, other than that newborn babies are way too cute for their own good (I've been on the postpartum floor all day for school, and holding the way most cutest little kiddos, ever.)

Oh, another thing. I met someone named Tatum this week, and I really wanted to ask her if she had a sister named Greer. You see, I've been stuck on this tangent for a while of how names in combination are important. Hence, the Tatum and Greer combo that I saw online. Ha! :)

I guess I did have something to say.

Love y'all!

my new haircut

You know when you get a haircut and you're not sure if you like it? Well, yeah...

When my hair is down...

...and when it's pulled back.

Then begs the question, if I don't look like myself, who do I look like?

a Japanese Anime character?

Audrey Tautou in Amelie?

The verdict is still out. I don't know if I like it.
