Nettie Cleo

On February 15th we celebrated my Grandma Nettie's birthday! How else...well going to Ponderosa of course! :) It is somewhat funny, Grandma hardly ever eats anything, but we are able to get her to eat when she goes to Ponderosa. Of course compared to the rest of us she doesn't eat much, but I think she enjoyed the day.
On her birthday we didn't do anything else after taking her to Ponderosa, but we did spend about 2 hours there just talking, eating, and having fun! I love my Grandma! When they sang Happy Birthday to her...but of course it was the Pondo way she had the biggest smile on her face. This picture shows it all.

I feel so blessed that growing up I lived only 5 minutes away from Grandma's house. I love the memories that I have going to her house to have her babysit me and we were able to spend time watching The Price is Right, picking strawberries in a field behind her house, walking up and down the road to her neighbor's houses to visit with people, and most of all just spending time together. Grandma is one of the strongest, most Godly women that I know. She has been an incredible example for me on how to live your life and love your family. She will never know the depth of how much I appreciate her and all of the time that I was able to spend with her growing up. I wish life wouldn't have gotten so hectic and I was still able to spend the same amount of time with her now. I know that I am the stubborn person I am today because of her! I love you Grandma!!!

It's always good to vent a little.....

Well Hello...it has been forever! There really hasn't been a whole lot going on

other than the same boring thing EVERY single week. Can you tell I'm not

amused with my school/work schedule right now? Here is what my schedule looks like

Mon: Class from 300-430 and sometimes a Nursing Student Affairs Meeting

Tues: Class from 9am-12noon

Wed: Off Class, but I usually work 7p-1a

Thursday and Friday: Clinicals from 3p-1130p

Sat: Work 7p-7a

Sun: Sometimes work 7p-1a....just depends on if I signed up or not. :)

So it doesn't sound too busy, but in someways that is my problem. Due to the fact that I don't really have early classes that means I don't go to bed at a good time and I sleep in waaayyy too long and don't really do a whole lot like I should. For example homework, clean, or just be productive in some way! :) It is really bad! It is actually getting to the point of annoying me, but I don't know if I can break these horrible habits. Oh yeah, I should be doing more to prepare for NCLEX...you know that big test I have to take to become an RN so I should change my nasty habits soon.

I have applied for a few jobs...so who knows. I kinda feel that it is too early to really hear back on any of them. We will see.

Well I guess I should get back to work. :) I needed to vent a little bit first.

Oh that reminds me....the last time I worked I got yelled at by a day tech. In some ways it cracked me up because she was way out of line and just acting very unprofessional and like a jerkface, but I let her have it. :) Just kidding...I did stand up for myself though because like I said...she was WAY out of line.

Yay Valentine's Day is coming up. Nick and I will be celebrating our 5th Valentine's Day together...Awww :) We can't really afford to do anything special so...we'll probably just be lazy at home together...I still think that is a good night any time!

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
