I made it through my first week of night shift and I'm still alive! It was a little tough, but a good experience, for sure. It was fun being with the children that I now work with and was great relearning prior nursing skills. I am also reminded of how thankful I am for healthy children! Sometimes we forget how blessed we are.
This whole moving transition is coming along, as I am actually doing something fun again. See my yo yo's in the picture? This little yo yo maker is fun and makes perfectly formed yo yo's everytime. I've made them the old fashioned way too, and this is much more fun!
I also started tanning yesterday. We have a big wedding coming up in less than a month now! I need a little tan to make myself looked relaxed, and so as not to blind anyone when I am escorted into the church. :o) I'm going to look for my wedding shoes today and will find someone to hem my dress. I think we just may make it through all this!
I found a new place to have my nails touched up yesterday. I met the funniest woman ever in the nail salon. Her ex-husband is mayor of our town and she was a hoot... talking about him and his new wife. I was truly entertained while getting my nails done.
I've been walking on the treadmill... believe it or not. It sat in our garage at our "real" home for two years, hardly ever used. I now have it in the livingroom of our tiny little apartment and it's finally getting some use. I decided that walking is now a necessity, as I don't get nearly the exercise at my new job, as I did at my old job.
We found a very pretty lake in our town yesterday and took our dogs for a walk. Our dogs are not used to being around strangers and it was a very interesting walk. Big dog wagged his whole body each time he would see people.... little dog barked viciously each time she saw the same people. We need to socialize them a little more!
I talked to a dear friend last night who worked with me at my old job. Seems a lot has happened since I left... things I would not like at all. It made me happy that I was no longer working there.... see, things really do have a way of working themselves out. I didn't have to leave on a bad note and I didn't get fired!
I have some really big dreams right now. #1 is that our house will sell quickly and then my other dreams may follow. I am definitely looking "up" right now as our life is moving in this new direction. 'Hope your week has been a good one!

I am sooo glad to hear that little "lilt" in your 'voice' - sounds like things are working out the way they should have for sure!
Keep your spirits up and you'll be thin and tan and totally yo-yo filled in no time!

I can hear that little "lilt" here too! Good for you. Tanning, walking, sewing.... what more could you want! You'll be the prettiest one at that wedding, wait and see!
