For Sale

The Realtor called today and the house we currently live in goes up for sale tomorrow. So I guess that means I really need to start packing now and making things a tad more presentable. Of course it's one more thing to worry about right! I really hope it doesn't sell as fast as the Realtor thinks it will. He said they expect quite a bit of traffic... but I warned him that I work nights and sleep days and that I will not be amendable to spur of the moment walk throughs or even showings every day. I am not trying to sell it so they can work around my schedule.

I hope the other house is ready for us in time. The Realtor said they could close in as little as 45 days. Yikes!

***update*** So right after this post I received another call from my friend who owns the house that we are moving to saying that the people renting it now broke the lease and have moved out already! So we get to move in early.

Withdrawl not accepted?

Seriously? I know I have been charged for it. Yeah maybe someday I want a BSN... but seriously I am beyond overwhelmed right now, and yeah I know I did this to myself... but seriously, if I need to withdraw then well... I must do so, because I am NOT going to do it all.

I have to make some hard decisions on just which path I want to take in my life right now. I have alot on my plate and sometimes because I have a bit of an issues sometimes with wanting MORE. Don't we all. I figured things would have more time for extra things because I handled it no problem this past semester in nursing school, but in reality it was all about perspective I guess.

I really tried to give a crap about the classes but at this point when I look at the assignments I really really just can't bring myself to complete them. I guess that means that I am just not ready to return to school for general education classes. I am just plain old burnt out!!

Maybe next year (shrug)

Withdraw request sent

So I decided to send a withdraw request for the BSN classes. I just do not like the format,two papers and a million discussion posts a week. I just have so much going on and things I am being paid for and can affect my licensing are way more important at this time to stay on top of. I will also quit the second job once we start getting placements, but not until then.

I think I will take a break from school searching and BSN classes until after the OR program is finished and think about BSN again at that time if I have to.

I have to admit

That I am behind in my BSN classes already and considering withdrawing. I mean really I have so much going on I don't know what I was thinking. I want to quit my second job, but the girls there are so nice and don't give me a bunch of crap and I can self schedule and well... I just can't bring myself to say no when they call... ok yes I have been, I said start of care only no f/u visits, I will assign to my LPN team... yup that will be 1 less thing right?

So now what? Urgh! I guess tomorrow and Friday I will try and get caught back up with classes and write those stupid discussion posts and papers on lord only knows what.

Vacation Planning

I think it's time for a vacation. I am thinking a road trip to New Orleans would be fun. Since we would be driving there I am also thinking a stop over in San Antonio for a day would be fun too. Two things to cross off my bucket list. Since moving here all of our vacations have been back to Mass to visit family up there. No offense because I love them all and it's fun to visit Boston, but I have been there done that. It's time to get some of those "it'd be nice" trips outta the way.

So I have begun pricing the gas expenses and hotel for the areas. I am thinking the state income tax return, if it comes back to us in time, would be enough to enjoy a nice hubby and me week before we start getting our foster/adopt kids and move into the new house.

With working two jobs and going to school we haven't had anytime to celebrate my graduation. So we shall see. I am hoping we will be celebrating my son's graduation from HighSchool as well... but right now that is up in the air because of his Algebra grade. Do they really have to put things soo close, first Sami and now him?

Fake it till you Make it.

Don't hate but I drew my first lab of my RN career unsupervised yesterday! LOL Ok so the tube ended up being spoiled and the blood clotted and it was a fail at the end. Like I blew through the little vein and she'll have a pretty big bruise. But it was an awkward position, this home care thing is tough and conditions are less than ideal.

But anyway, yeah it was a weird feeling to just do it like it was something I did every day. It was also nice because the patient was all, " You are so calm and matter of fact that you put me at ease." Dude my hands were shaking and my heart was pounding so hard! LOL Never let'em see you sweat I guess!

I just don't want to do it

Maybe I have just too much going n in my life right now but I just don't want to do the BSN program I am in. I just don't want to do the visiting nurse job I have. Heck I even don't want to do my night job anymore. I know it's because I want the OR program to begin, plus there is just so much going on with the foster/adoption thing right now and moving into that house that literally I am starting to feel like may be wayyy more than we can handle but I don't think change so often who the heck knows what will happen, but all I can say is MAYBE I can force myself to get through all of the school stuff, but there may not be any saving me when it comes to the second job.

I think it may be the charting :-)

In Reality

I dropped the Work & Family class. So I only have two classes this semester, but it is more than enough. Currently I am sick with fevers, stomachaches and fatigue feels fluish but I had the flu shot and it's pretty late in the season, so I am going to go with a virus.

I am liking the visiting nurse position a overall but feeling a bit lazy and not really wanting to do both jobs and go to school. I think in the Fall I will no way be able to do both of these positions with the OR program as intensive as it is. I really hope our foster placements are in place by then.

The BSN Journey begins

As of today classes have started. Oh freaking joy. Anyways, the class I could not remember the name of, "Work and Family" lol

Ok so anyways off to review these stupid classes and see what I have gotten myself into.

Professional Nursing (4)
Advanced English Composition (4)
Work and Family (4)

And I am seriously thinking 3 is too many classes with two jobs. All this paper writing... really three 5 page APA papers and 6 discussion board posts a week?

PS Curlygirl asked: How did you study for the HESIA2

Answer: I didn't study for the HESIA2 actually. I wish I could have said there was some magic way to do it, but with all of my prereqs and coreqs completed, the content for the HESIA2 was covered.

Color Challenge

My colorist has her hands full but I am confident in her ability. Actually a few months ago she managed to bring my hair back from the drab brown with grayish tint to my 6 year old glory, and the time has come to do it again! Oh how I wish I could get this color from a bottle that didn't turn my hair red... but alas $150 it is.

Look at those cheeks! So freaking cute! LOL Oh and yes I am a natural blonde ;-P
