Update, Catch-up, Yada-Yada



Here's the run down:

  • Christmas came and went, it was, in a word, bittersweet.Thank you my familia for the thoughtful gifts, I love them!
  • New Years came and went, it was, in a word, boring!(It was the first New Years Patrick and I had alone since we met and my dear husband fell asleep at 7pm lol)
  • Speaking of my sweet spouse, he's decided to "grown is hair out"... I am not a fan.
  • I finished school and started my externship this past week! I get to do 200 hrs at an obygn clinic.
  • I may have said 'vagina' at church today.
  • I may have also said 'vagina' at church last week too.
  • I've chunked up... I need to un-chunk
  • Recent trials in my little life have started to turn me into a not nice person... I really dont like that.
  • On the plus side, I got a new Dr and "Baby Makin' 2011" has officially begun!
  • I'm going to start looking for something new, different, and/or new and different to me to do once a month... I know what you're thinkin'..uh, what?! I know, it sounds good in my head, I'll let you know.
  • I've been told that my face needs 'help'... do they have an app for that?
  • Biggest pet-peeve: People talking to each other while in separate stalls in a public bathroom!
  • I know this will shock some of you so sit down.... I probably should have read growing up. I'm pretty sure being a 'reader' whilst young would've helped me in college. There, I said it.
  • I know I'm not the greatest blogger, but I appreciate those of you who hang on with me!
Goodnight Ya'll

A Letter & The Haps...

Dear School,

I regret to inform you that I am over you.
The pages and pages of homework, the hours of driving to and from class, the memorizing of 65+ surgical instruments... Oh! The memorizing! I am over it all!
Unfortunately, 'the man' says I must keep trucking along. I must learn the 'right way' to manipulate tools, set up trays with a tiny pair of 'tongs' while not speaking but using hand signals, when I know in the 'real world' that I will be able to speak and just glove up and use my hands that Heavenly Father gave me!

You're lucky I have to stick around for a few more months school, otherwise I'd be outta there!

Sincerely,
Me


In other news... School started back up, I'm taking radiology, coding, and 2 advanced patient care classes. I'll be started my externship in January..cant wait!

Falls a commin'! I wanted to start a tradition that on the 1st day of fall (which will be this Thursday) I will make a fall-ish type dinner. Since this will be the 1st year, I'm going to try a pumpkin chili recipe that I found. We'll see if it sticks.

I also joined a gym. Seems that when you stop working at the airport and start sitting at a desk all day, the chub comes back! Well, the chubs gettin the boot! We'll see if it sticks. :)

This month we went to a funeral for Patricks Aunt who passed away from stomach cancer. Have you ever been to a funeral surrounded by accusations of murder, druggies buying up the dead lady's pain killers, having the funeral stuff at THREE different locations, dead flowers and all the soda you could drink? Well my friends, this funeral was all that and more!

My cousin Jason's wife had their 2nd bebe and my other cousin Andrew got married!

We also went to a surprise birthday party for his other auntie. She cried when we yelled 'surprise'... I love it when something good makes someone cry! :)

Speaking of making people cry, Christmas is coming and it has been a goal to make mom and pops cry over our gifts. I need some ideas people!

Speaking of crying again, my gramma and uncle are moving back to Utah next month(?).
I cant wait.

I'm goin to see a new Dr. at the end of this week... Lets hope he can help.

I want a vinyl cutter. You know, a machine that will cut out vinyl into words and shapes for me so I can make awesome stuff? Let me know if you have a hook up!

I leave you with an image of what I'm doing right now.... Any guesses?
