Oh my gosh, I kind of dropped off the face of the earth. First of all, I have been working crazy over time, like 14-24 hours per pay period (2 wks). I have been picking up every shift that is offered. This has benefited me in two ways. Hello, amazeballs paycheck, the other is recognition by management.
I love the overtime but as I am writing this, I am getting ready for a 16 hour shift and I am dreading it big time.
A bunch if big things have happened in my life in the past month or so. I could write pages on them but I will give the quick version 🙂
I bought a Jeep. I have wanted one since before I could drive. It was either my 16th or 17th birthday but someone in my family gifted me a Hot-wheels Jeep as a joke. So, I finally have my dream car and I love it! I love going off-road and mudding. We have taken it to an off-road park that’s about an hour away and had a ton of fun. Action shot lol:
And here is a video also from that trip:
We are planning a couple vacations this year that will involve the Jeep. I can’t wait to share them!
We also became bona-fide cattle ranchers. Really, we bought three and we are keeping them at my in-laws. We lost one last week but here are the other two.
Arn’t they the cutest?!
The next picture is of me feeding the one we lost 😦 so sad. Thinking back we think he was sick when we got him.
So there is the lowdown of the last month for me. I have a couple more pretty cool things to share but I have to get dressed for work so I will make a separate post for those. The hubs and I were talking about how things seem to be coming together for us! It’s an exciting time 🙂
There is a girl in my class and clinical group who is really mean. I really don’t think she means to be, I think she teases a lot. But it is hurtful and embarrassing sometimes. I was in a class with her previously and so we hung out at first because we knew each other and everything was new. It’s kind of like she found a weakness of mine and she just picks at it. Sometimes I think it is when she is feeling nervous or unsure of herself. I moped all day yesterday and I am blogging about this and then I am going to drop it, I am not going to waste another thought on it. But here is my song to her 🙂
Anyhow I actually had a really great week. My clinical rotation was in a family practice physicians office and a community health center. Before this week I had no intention on working at a physicians office. I always hear how working for a physician is awful because they think they are kings, and really I had that experience of working for a DB physician. After this week though, I know they are not all like that. In fact, I believe that most are not. I liked the work, especially in the community health clinic, it was so busy! I loved that it was so busy and there was no low time. It makes the day go by quickly and if you have a difficult patient, you get them in and out and you don’t have to spend 12 hours with them. So, the a clinic/physician’s office is definitely back on the list of possible jobs after this program.
I am so ready for next year! It is going to be AWESOME. I have so many exciting plans. We want to buy a Jeep, buy a house, I will be working as a nurse, and we want to get pregnant next summer. In fact I am watching A Baby Story on TLC right now. The show makes me really nervous for labor but really excited for the outcome. And I pretty much cry every episode 🙂 🙂 🙂
But anyhow, I have lots of studying to do since I have three exams next week!
I am so close to getting my dream car, I can taste it! This time next year I will be rolling in a brand new Jeep Wrangler :). A Jeep Wrangler is the first car I wanted when I started thinking about getting my license and all that fun adult stuff. On my 16th birthday, I received a Jeep Hotwheel. Yeah thanks guys…
Anyways, this is what I want except with a winch in the front 🙂 :).
I have been so good with knowing I cannot have it until after nursing school, but then we rented a Jeep for a day during our vacation to Red River, NM and SO much fun! I can’t wait to go back and climb mountains in my own Jeep and get battle wounds (scratches and mud) on the sides. Yes, I wouldn’t care if it got scuffed up a little. That would just mean that we were driving a Jeep like it was built to be driven and we were out having fun!
Here are a couple of videos taken while I was driving the rented one in Red River, NM. We had a blast.
