Long time no post ... boy has life changed!

Its been a very long time since I last posted here on the blog. Things in my life have changed drastically since then and I felt it was time to start blogging again.

One thing about blogging that I'm never sure of is .... how much of my "dirty laundry" do I talk about. Do I write about things in general or can I be somewhat detailed, and if I am detailed will it come back to bite me in the butt?

So I'm going with a general talk. So earlier this year my husband of 11 years decided to have an affair. Consiquently I have filed for divorce and now things are getting ugly even after going before a judge. It seems that some people refuse to acknowledge a judges orders.

This has been hard on my son who is now 6. I try to maintain a stable home for him and keep him out of all the divorce talks however, his father doesn't do that so much.

So now I am preparing for my next journey with Nate. I want to get him away from all the madness that is life now and move cross country to a family friendly town where he and I can reconnect as mother and child. I will be finishing up my nursing degree as well and I know in my heart that this is something that will be great for he and I both.

Now the journey of saving and earning enough money begins. I had the money saved but its all went to pay for attorney fees so I'm starting from scratch. If anyone has suggestions on extra things to do to make some extra cash (legit things) please feel free to let me know.

I promise that I will start blogging again daily and get back into the swing of things again.

How distasteful can one be?

This just disturbs me greatly. Our soldiers go to Iraq and other foreign countries fighting for us and when one dies people run out to slander them in any way they can.

What does this accomplish? Are their hurtful words not meant to hurt the one that died ... HELLO! Instead their hurtful words hurt the family that is left behind.

My friends buddy died this past Friday and an "anonymous" person has taken to slandering this man. I don't care if he had a bad past, life, bankruptcy, whatever ... don't chose now to do your hurtful actions.

Ok sorry off my soap box now.

Should .... Could

Please forgive me, life is crazy right now. I've gotta get thoughts out there if only for myself.

Sometimes things that are, are things that should not be.
Sometiems things that should be are things that we don't know how to get.
Sometimes we don't know how to changes the things that are, to be the things that should be.
Sometimes we could make things right.
Sometimes we have to get lost so that we can be found.

Again sorry I'm sure this makes no sense.

Well it's been along time since my last blog ... April I think. Things have been crazy. I finished classes last week and now have a short summer break before starting back up. I didn't pass one of my classes which has thrown a HUGE wrench in my plans. If I continue on my current course I'll be behind by at least 6 months. I've been thinking about doing a Surgical Tech program over the LPN as I fell in love with the OR when I did a rotation there.

I'm going this week to pick up an application for that program and see what happens from there. I got a membership to the gym yesterday and have went both yesterday and today. I got on the elliptical machine yesterday and I must say it kicked my butt. My thighs are so sore you'd think I ran a marathon. Today I was smarter and stuck to the treadmill and ab machines. I'm determined to lose this extra weight and not be so self conscious in my scrubs. I'm so excited to watch Biggest Loser tonight too ... I'm really cheering for Mike to win. He's done so well and it just amazes me how much he's lost in such a short time.

School and the never ending schedule.

Gah! I didn't realize that it had been so long since my last post. I've been working like crazy with nursing clinicals and trying to keep my grades up. Things have been challenging and eventful.

I've been having clinicals at the hospital and this past week was very sad to see my patient. She was an elderly woman who had a large ulcer on her leg that has become gangrenous. Her family has elected to have comfort care and not pursue surgery, antibiotics or any other treatment measures. They are strictly keeping her comfortable until the infection does her in. Seeing cases like this makes it hard sometimes.

There have been some events going on with Kate (Wayne's marrow recipient) that I'll mention later.

Hope all of you are doing well. We are expecting some April snow tonight (in Ga of all places) so that will be fun to see.

Happy Birthday!

It was five years ago today that I was in the hospital waiting for my son to arrive. Since then he has grown into a bright and energetic little man. While there have been trials along the way I wouldn't change anything.

Happy Birthday my sweet boy!

Salt Dough Ornaments

This is a handy recipe to use with your children to make homemade ornaments for your tree, or even ornaments to give as gifts! This is super fast because there is no need to bake them, simply put them in the microwave.

You'll need:

4 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
1 1/2 cups of hot water
holiday cookie cutters
decorations, glitter, paint, beads, etc.

Knead the dough and roll it out to cut out shapes with cookie cutters (just like if you were making sugar cookies). Place them on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for about 2 minutes. Paint and decorate as desired.
