a week in pictures.

on april 9th, 2012,  we were married for 2 years.
R + M = love
the kind of love you choose to feel for someone every day.
the kind of love where you want to do things that make the other one happy.

he was not happy that i put this picture up.
but i like it ;)

going on dates with roger is fun.
having conversations with roger is fun - and they can last a very long time.
glad we've got a lifetime to have our "conversations"
my husband makes me smile.
it makes me smile even more when he washes dishes and does the laundry and works in the yard.

thank you GOD, for this gift, my husband.
i know him better than i've known anyone in my life.

we went to the Olive Garden because we still had some gift certificates from Christmas [thank you oma and opa!!]
and yes, it was so good.
and yes, we ordered more food than we could eat.
but yes, it came home with us in an Olive Garden take out "bag"
and yes, i wish we could do things like this more often.

we dyed easter eggs.
i got the tye-dye glitter easter eggs [which i will NEVER do again] and we made a glittery mess of the whole situation.
you know she had a blast.

she wanted to put the glitter on everything.
and somehow, gitter did end up everywhere.
even after bathtime, i was still seeing sparkles.

ofcourse she didn't want to eat the pecan twirl - not when there was a basket full of candy going to waste infront of her!

she has been saying some of the funniest things lately and believe me, i have been writing them down all year.

roger - working hard with some pretty lethal lead.
he made me wash his clothes (shirt and jeans) in the washing machine all by themselves.
so dangerous is that lead.
he's got the most gorgeous eyes :)

this made me laugh.
roger took hailee to the thrift store so i could get in some quiet study time.
i gave her 50 cent so she could get herself something.
when they came home, she showed me this.
out of ALL the junk she could have came home with from the thrift store, she picked this little porcelain cat ornament type thing.
honestly, it doesn't surprise me.
hailee's pretty infatuated with little things and knick nacks.
even when it comes to toys - if the toy comes in a box with other little accessories - you better believe, she wants you to get out all the little accessories before you get the big part out.

and this is where i shall spend my weekend.

i have 2 huge tests on monday.
the hematology system [blood and stuff - diseases that go along with blood]
and
microbiology - memorizing scientific names of fungi and helminthes

then, once those tests are over, i can start studying for the pharmacology test on wednesday.
3 more weeks in the semester and it does NOT feel like it's winding down.
instead - it feels like things are being crammed into these weeks because the semester is coming to an end.
hardest semester yet!

i have 2 more clinicals - my rotation in same day surgery is next week.
i won't know what's in store for me until i get there that morning at 6AM. the only thing i'm worried about with same day surgery is having to wear one of those face masks. i'm not good with breathing in my own air. i'm thinking gum, mints, minty or flavored chapstick - something that will take away from "breathing my own hot breath" and getting nauseated. otherwise, it may be the 2nd time i've ever fainted.... let's hope for the best though!


and i gotta throw this in for all my friends and family that aren't on facebook.
THIS is from hailee's preschool easter luncheon.
she made me laugh so hard that i was crying and could not breathe.
austin, my brother, was sitting next to me videoing this and i will never let her forget this.
enjoy!

one more month in this semester.

this week has been a marathon week. [just like last week was...]
everything that happened and was due - was a catalyst to the next thing that happened and was due.

let's start with last weekend, shall we?

friday - full day of clinicals with 2 patients [1st time and it went great!]  and after being on my feet for nearly 11 hours, i had to come home and sit at a computer and put together a power point presentation for psych 203 on 'Austim'

saturday - hailee turned 3 and we ate lunch at my parents' house - then i studied for my microbiology test the rest of the day

sunday - sammi's 2 yr old birthday party - nursery 9am at church - lunch at cyn and brian's for sammi - then studied for my cardiac system test the rest of the day

monday - 1. Cardiac test [93] 2. Microbiology test [85 :) - the best yet!] - then, home to work on my well elder paper and all my clinical paperwork - worked on this stuff until 11:30pm, when i promptly got myself in the bed!

tuesday - 1. turn in well elder paper 2. turn in all my clinical paperwork from friday 3. home to study for pharmacology test

wednesday - 1. Pharmacology test [100!!] and was at school till 4pm - my long day...
then, on the way home, this happened....

i sat in traffic [in the middle of no-where] for 45 minutes and maybe went 5-7 miles total.

i also had to do a psych 203 assignment on stress and stress relief  - stress relief?? not likely...

thursday - the end of my week :) [no clinicals tomorrow due to good friday] Hailee's 3 yr old well child check up (11:30am) - working on my virtual child scrapbook/power point presentation for psych 203- and trying to catch up on all the house work that got pushed aside during all the hustle and bustle of this week!!

no lie - on tuesday, i was already asking "is it really ONLY tuesday??" just shows how ready i was for the week to end...

it's been busy to say the least.
the other day, i was thinking about all the stuff i used to do and now, there's no time for it. like...
  • extracurricular reading fun books OR magazines [not fun any more - the only books i read are text books].
  • pinterest - laughable - no time for that either.
  • i honestly have not even taken my guitar out of it's case since this semester started - nor have i sang anything
  • all the "talked about" goings on like the hunger games: didn't even know there was such a thing until people started obsessing finishing the books and watching the movie
  • i never even saw the breaking dawn twilight movie that came out november 2011
  • i can just forget about watching any kind of series on tv [or netflix]
  • for real, this blog is about the only thing i haven't "given up" since starting school. in a way, it's a healthy release, being able to reflect on my week and consciously write out things that go on/pressure that is situating itself on my shoulders/the way nursing school is all consuming and maybe, just maybe there's someone out there reading this, getting an idea of what they're in for when it comes to nursing school. [shew, that was a mouth full!]
  • oh, and don't forget friends. i miss my friends i used to see and [my fault] haven't talked to in months - right now, i'm a bad friend. but i can be a bad wife, and a bad mom too. there's so much going on in my life that if i don't say "I"M GOING TO MAKE TIME FOR ______" then it doesn't happen. i had a best friend. but i haven't talked to her since last year :( i miss her!
  • i don't even shave my legs if i don't make time for it !!!! TMI maybe, but true ;)
  • time to work out? not this week.

princess attire :) if you can't tell, we're going through a princess stage.


she understood the whole birthday thing this year, she knows she's 3 [free] years old, and kept looking for more presents [even after her birthday]. i was actually worried we'd get to her cousins the very next day for her [sammi's] birthday and she'd want to open sammi's presents - we had to keep her reigned in a little bit :)

the weekend went by in a blur.

ya think she needs more toys in her bath tub?? she does...

as i said earlier, her 3 yr old well child check up was today.

Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App

we got this for her birthday because, 1. she LOVES to play with my stethescope/BP cuff/medical stuff, and 2. in an attempt to get her ready for HER dr's appointment.

someone told her she was getting a shot [either that, or somehow she remembered it from her 2 yr old visit - not likely] so obviously, she was a bit uneasy.
mimi and papa called this morning and she talked whimpered to them on the phone asking if they would come to her dr's appt with us. so they did.

she was good up until they took her blood pressure, then, she majorly FREAKED OUT!!! i'm talkin screaming. the BP cuff was just 'hugging her arm'.
then, she didn't want the dr to look in her ears, and when they stuck her finger for the lipid pannel, she about came off the table.

so..... NO shots today. we'll wait till she's 4 and not traumatize her completely. she's in the 45% for both height and weight, which is super! her vocabulary is off the chain, and she's gonna need to go to the dentist soon :( another one i'm not crazy about taking her to.

********

so she told me to take pictures of her making faces. my child loves to make faces :)
Photobucket

loving all of life's little moments just as much as i can. there is one more month - not even 30 days - left in this semester. then, i'll get ONE WEEK OFF before summer classes start.
summer classes = pediatrics and 1 test every week for 11.5 weeks straight.
FUN!!!

my child is waking up from her nap - on the wrong side of the bed - think i'll just let her simmer a bit before i go in there and mess with her. happy easter, and happy weekend :)
