Days 3, 4, 5 and 6

Wednesday I went to work.. I tried uploading a picture but for some reason, it won't work... Grr.. I had a crazy day on Thursday... Want to school, practiced an hour in the lab, and then went to class. Well my class was no where to be found... Can you believe it? The syllabus said room 222, and guess what... It was NOT in room 222! I went to the teacher and asked if she could help me and even she was confused... Argh... Stayed extra to do my code grey video which is a video on ethics in nursing... So boring... But intestine.. At least rowboat I could hear.. Tere were these obnoxious girls just chit chatting ay the whole time.. I was like "shut up!" and they got attitudes with me.. Ugh drammmaaaaaaa Friday I had work again.. Baby girl is growing up way too fast! She is wanting to walk already.. She's 8 months old... I'll try uploading another picture again. I woke up at 3am today, to take my mom to the airport. She's going to Peru for 2 weeks... Ok vie... What's my life going to be like for to weeks without my mom??... Saturday, I had a child birth class to attend. It was interesting, and to he honest, made me want another child. We're talking about the possibility of starting to try for our baby in the next 2-3 months so that I would have time with boards, and finding a job... We shall see! Today is Sunday, we woke up late, I took jj to church school, and then we went to eat lunch after. He's at his father's house and Jay and I are at home, getting stuff ready around the house ready for the week... We have my cousin coming over this week to help out with Justin on the mornings I have to leave super early.. Jays mom is coming next week to Eli out while I go to school, Jj's got no school next week... My birthday is in 13 days... I feel so.. Ugh.. 24 this year...

WITL Day 2 & hopefully writing Day 3 along the way

Yesterday was a busy day.. I had school at 7 am, I left my house at 5:45, and sat in traffic for over an hour and a half... I hate DC traffic with a passion, and especially when the weather is crazy.. We had thunderstorms in the morning with very little drizzling, and a funeral procession (wtf I know!) but the traffic was intolerable! You'd think we had a blizzard again with the amount of traffic there was... Anyways, after I made it to school we watched a few videos on Labor & Deliver and massaging the fundus (the top of the uterus) and BUBBLE HER (assessing breasts, terus, bladder, bowels, lochia (discharge from vag deliveries), episiotomy, homan's sign, inforgot the second E... And respirations... ) haha! Had an hour to drive from school (which is 45 mins away from the hospital) to the hospital and grab lunch along the way.. Sat in traffic for about 30 minutes before it cleared up... Went to the hospital and saw the new L&D suites. I can't wait! So exciting!! After school and hospital and everything else, I went to pick jj up, went to the park, called FedEx about my new iPad, and made broccoli cheddar soup for dinner. Tryin to figure out how to upload my pictures directly from my phone without having to send them to my email lol.. Ah well.. Had Zumba at 8:30pm, and it truly KILLED me last night. I felt it in my calls, my abs, my neck!... Very nice workout though! Came home, did some homework and took a shower and went to bed.. Today (Day 3) I woke up at 6, to JJ sneezing, coughing and crying... He has a bit of a fever, which SUCKS because that means he got the cold I was hoping not to pass onto him... My cold turned into pneumonia, a week of antibiotics and 6 boxes of tissues later, my cough is still there. And now JJ is presenting the same symptoms.. :( Ahh I just realized the time! I wrote for about 40 minutes. Lol going to get JJ ready now.. Talk to you soon!

Week In The Life (Part Deux) Day 1

Hey!!! It's been such a LONG time since I've been on here! Wow wow wow... lots to catch up on... But for now I'm just going to get right down to it. The girls and I have decided to do part 2 of WITL which was a great experience the first time around. I've been a Zumba addict since October. And I've lost 10 pounds since I started to do it. I LOVE IT! Only 10 more to go! I'm down to my final 7 weeks of Nursing School! Can you all believe it?! It seems like just yesterday I started! I'm planning on going into the NICU with a specialty in Palliative Care. I want to be able to care for those critically ill babies and assist their parents with the transition to death need they get that far.. I'm also planning on getting certified to teach Zumba, and run a low impact prenatal/post partum class for expecting & new mothers. We shall see! One step at a time! And for now RN is my goal! On a side note, I've been cooking and baking more. And began to experiment with new items and new recipes... I made falafel last week... Ehh wasn't the greatest.. But the couscous was Devine! My ikea plates have become my favorite to dress up in our dinner and take pictures of. :) in sure you've all seen them on Facebook and such haha.. But yeah.. I would like to take a culinary arts class and get more ideas of how to cook certain foods.. We shall see!! May 14! Mark your calendars ladies! May 14, 2012 @ 6:30p I will be graduating as a Nurse! =] woot woot!! Okay that's all for now, getting ready to go to Zumba :) will post pictures soon!
