1: I took my math test yesterday. The one I have to make a 95% on to stay in nursing school. I don’t have the results yet, and it pretty much killing me.

2: I took 2 finals (+ the math test) yesterday and I have 4 more and a check off next week. Ugh.

3: I am writing this from my backyard because I am out here with my NEW PUPPY!


We adopted him Monday from HALO, which is an organization that goes and rescues dogs from animal control and places them in foster homes until they get adopted. He is about 15-16 weeks an they believe he is a Black Mouth Cur mix. He is such a great dog. His foster mom had house trained him already and had him sit, lay, and shake on command. He is just a puppy so he is extremely hyper and jumps and bites a lot. We are trying to teach him not to bite us when he gets excited. My cats are tolerating him but still won’t let him get too close.

Here he is sleeping with me 🙂


His first trip to Petsmart.


Sleeping on daddy.


And his first dog tag 😉


Having a dog is much different than having cats. It’s a lot of work, but we love him and all his energy!


Random Pictures From my Phone

I started craving apple butter after my post earlier so I made an apple butter and peanut butter toast 🙂


Another random thing– I also love the Natures Own 12 grain whole grain bread, I am going through a loaf a week by myself!

I live in The Fort Worth area of Texas an at work today we started noticing a haze all around. We think it was from all the fires, even though none of them are really close to us. It looked worse in person but you can see a discolored line just above the trees in the distance.


Ok, this next part stresses me out a little. I have tendonosis in my leg from running. It has been hurt for about 3 and a half months now. Every time I try to run it gets worse again. Friday I will have completed 4 weeks of physical therapy at 3 times a weeks. I have seen little to no improvement 😦 and I stopped running! On Friday , my therapist is going to do some tests and send the results back to my doctor. It stresses me out because I have invested a lot of time and money into my injury and I’m not really seeing results. The doctor said if there is still pain after physical therapy he would send me for a bone scan. I really don’t want to get one. The doctor and the therapist both said they didn’t think it was a stress fracture so I see no point in wasting my money.

Any who these ice packs freeze my leg off!


Have you had any problems bouncing back from an injury? Any tips?
