Clearly Slacking in Blogland

Yup, slacking here on the Bloggyland duties. sorry about that. . . and of course, I have excuses. .but I'll spare you the details & the whining that accompanies.

My life is so full & I thank God for that. My family, my work, my neighbors, my schooling & my newly renewed FAITH fill me up & make me strive to be the best I can be. I am learning to appreciate ALL things - even those in my life that are challenges. I'm trying my best to embrace any obstacles & rethink them into stepping stones. I'm appreciating LIFE more.

Of course, right now, at this very minute, I'm PROCRASTINATING again. I should be writing my paper that is due tonight at midnight (Pacific time - so that's 2 MORE hours that I have - tee hee) I'm such a great procrastinator! This is my writing warm up session. . . yeah, that's right. See, there is a reason for my ramblings:)

Embrace Everything!

I'M IN!!!!

Got the call yesterday. . . and, yes, I'm officially IN grad school for my MSN through Gonzaga University. Of course, I still have to get my MAT score submitted & that very well may mean taking it AGAIN. {Thank you UPS for losing my test!!!} I'm staying positive & am very excited {aka nervous as all get out} to begin this journey. It's an online program {not moving to Washington} - so I'll have to be dedicated.

I'm on call today. . .yet again. Tuesdays are notorious for having TOO MANY nurses on the schedule where I work. FIFTEEN scheduled???? Are you kidding me? anyway. . .again, maybe this is a good thing. . . free day {kind of} to get some unexpected things done.

Of course, I waste no time {wasting time that is} & have discovered another really cool blog. . . go here to see what I'm talking about. Sweet Pea Totes is really inspiring. I may have to add it to my growing list on the right side over there. . . . >

I'm here - figuring out what to do with my Free Day. Drop me a line. . .

Happy New Year & Here is What I want to do

My To DO List just keep piling up thanks to all of you Talented Bloggy People {TBP} out there. Thanks to you, I should start to get some sleep sometime around the year 2259. Oh well!

I started reading the Twilight Saga!!!! I received Twilight from Scott's Grandparents the Sunday before Christmas & began to read it sometime last week. I'm already through it & started on New Moon. . which was a to me from me. I want to get Eclipse - but I'm going to have to have to bite the bullet (no pun intended) & purchase the hard copy. I already have Breaking Dawn from my dear Godmother. I'm entranced!

I really want to refashion some clothing. . .but we'll see how that works out for me. I'll keep you updated.

Still no word on the MAT. . .I will most likely have to retake it & I am not happy about that. But I fully intend to not think about that much right now because it's irritating. I'm trying to be positive in all circumstances for 2009 so maybe I will ace it when I retake it??? I can begin grad school classes without being accepted into the program. . . I should hear something more about that this coming week.

My house smells really good! I owe that to Young Living Essential Oils. They rock! I already need to order more Thieves & I'm thinking we'll try some Myrrh for some family skin conditions.

I want to make these knitted slippers. . . I haven't had the knitting needles out in QUITE some time. . .well, maybe for getting corners to lay flat when I turned something. . .but not for knitting. I subscribe to Craftsylish so I happened upon this "easy" tutorial there. We'll see how that works out. I'll post pics on PeekyBoos when I get them started/done. . . I have a TON of yarn.

I would also like to attempt some more doll clothes for my nieces. Hmmm. . .I may even think about starting on Christmas gifts for NEXT YEAR!! We'll see. I get a little ambitious sometimes with what I think I might be able to accomplish. . .but in the real world. . .I do need to sleep!

Happy New Year!
