Apparently Jack Frost didn't get the notice that last week was the first day of Spring! This is the front yard at my parent's house this past Saturday.
We got more than 6 inches there and nearby Tulsa got between 9-12 inches of snow! And the best part of this crazy Oklahoma weather is the fact that today has been sunny and in the 60s, warm enough to only need a light jacket outside. I even saw several people wearing shorts and capris when I was at Target getting groceries. Crazy right?
This week promises to be busy. I've got a Microbiology exam and a Pharmacology test to study for. I also have to get an outline ready for my first persuasive speech, I'm doing it over donating blood. I'm a bit shy and hate speaking in front of people. I've managed to put Speech off for 3 years but had to face the music this semester. I'm doing good so far, but I still get hot and shaky when it gets to my turn each time I have to give a speech.
I'm sending off my partner's package for the Tea for Two apron swap in the morning. I'm totally on an apron kick these days, I just can't get enough!
I promised a garden update last week. Let's just say it's not looking too good. The ground is very moist and packed down super hard so it's been hell on Matt and the tiller to break the ground. The bracket that holds the gas tank on the tiller actually broke over Spring Break, oops! So, the garden has been put on hold. I'm actually not sure if it's worth the trouble and I'm thinking about just spending this year getting the ground perfectly ready for planting next Spring. There are tons of old garden spots at Matt's house that we could till up and put all my veggies in if I give up on my own garden.
Also, I've been trying to get some info about a CNA position at the hospital in my hometown. I got an email from the Nursing Supervisor and am waiting to see if I'll have to get my CNA license or can do on the job training. I'd love to work at the hospital this summer instead of in retail like I always have. I've got my fingers crossed!
I'm 23 years old and in my fifth year of college. I started out as an Environmental Biology major only to discover that it was not God's plan for me. I will graduate from the Nursing program in May with ADN and pursue my Bachelors over the next year. I'm so excited to jump right in and get a real taste of what life as a nurse will be like. I have a true passion for children and for helping others; my dream is to work in Pediatrics and specialize in Pediatric Oncology.
My boyfriend Matt and I have been together eight years and we have plans to tie the knot when I finally complete school. I thank God everyday that I've been blessed with my soulmate. I love to sew, and I especially love to quilt when I can find the time. Being an Aunt to my two nieces and my nephew is one of the most fulfilling roles of my life, I love all three of them to pieces!
