First Day of the Last

Today was the first day of my last semester in nursing school....notice I didn't say first day of my last day of school forever. I wish. It was a good day. I like the teachers so far, especially the one who canceled her class this afternoon. Although now I have been sitting around at home rather bored. Little Jinx is laying on the bed with me keeping my feet warm. She seems to sleep about 20 hours a day which is awesome! I wish I was able to sleep 20 hours a day but there seems to be so much to do.

I am dreading Friday...I get to go get my toe basically chopped off. Ok not completely but at least my toenail. Aren't y'all glad you read my blog and get to hear this awesome stuff? I have lived with random ingrown toenails all my life and now it is worse. All they will do is shove a 19233468 inch needle in my toe to deaden it and then get the junk out. Ouch. I get sick to my stomach when I think of it. It's one thing to be the nurse on the other side of a procedure, and a completely different thing to be the patient (for all you wondering why I get sick to my stomach about this if I am going to be a nurse).

That's all for today!

Birthday Eve

Today is the eve of my birth--born 22 years ago tomorrow. Sometimes it feels like yesterday when I was riding bikes and playing barbies with my best friend in Abilene. A few significant things have happened in my life as I look back upon my year. I got married, lost my grandfather, watched my sister-in-law/greatest friend get married, watched her then lose her husband/friend, began my 3rd semester in nursing school, adopted a cat, and watched my other sister-in-law get married. It has been a year of extreme highs and painful lows. All in all, I am thankful to have lived every day of it--even the bad days. I am excited to see what the Lord bestows upon me in the next 365 days.

It has been a pretty lazy past 2 weeks for me which would make one wonder why I haven't updated my blog--sorry. I always think I will wait until I get my pictures uploaded to post so I procrastinate. So pictures or no pictures, I will just have to post anyway. Please excuse the many pictures of the cat--I am a proud parent who gets a little camera happy.

Christmas at Mom and Dad's.

I think I should get this painted--lol, ok I am not that lame but it is a cute picture.

Jinx was helping me study for finals.

Stretch! (Notice the flexed paws)

Well I hope this can satisfy people now. No more nagging! Especially when your blogs are also outdated...

As always I am thankful for life and death, lazy kitty days, and thankful that school is starting back up soon so I can get on with it!
