Only three days...

Until I leave! I have so much I want to do but I know I won't do it. Want to know why? Laziness. I haven't done half the things I was going to do. I have been slacking off on my workouts, haven't called everyone on my call list, haven't scrapped at all and the list could go on. But I did Spring clean my house!! I reorganized my closet and I am in love once again. I got rid of a lot of clothes I know I'm not going to wear anymore. I need to donate the stuff before I leave. Hopefully that will get done tomorrow.Of course I still am working on my computer room. It looks like it a paper factory exploded up in here. I hate when school ends because my computer room always ends up this way. I still have no clue as what to pack. I need to tackle that tomorrow. I want to bring my big suitcase and my mom is trying to talk me out of it. I wouldn't mind but I am going to be in Alaska for a month, 4 days traveling to Tennessee and then spending a week or two in Memphis. Then I'm flying into Orlando to spend 4 days in Disney. So I have no clue what to bring. Maybe I won't bring a lot and go shopping. Hahaha. I still have to upload some songs for my ipod. I need nice relaxing stuff for my plane trip. And I have to figure out which books to bring along. I was weak and bought a book yesterday. I wasn't going to buy anymore until I was finished with the huge pile I have but I figured I deserved it. I bought For Laci and I hope it doesn't make me cry to much. It was 30% off at Target and I know my mom wanted to read it so I'll just give it to her when I'm done.

The visitors left Friday but not without drama. Thursday I was suppose to pick them up at 6:30 to go to Auntie M.'s for dinner. Well, I'm waiting and waiting and no one calls. So I go do a couple of errands figuring once I get to the grocery store someone will call. Not so. So I get a call around 8:00 and it's his mom wondering where we are at? I said that baby got a call and that we have to pick them up when he gets off at nine. They went to Sawgrass because the wanderer wanted to do more shopping!! I was pissed. His Aunt had dinner ready at 6:30 and we didn't get there until a quarter to 10. Lovely. I told him that his cousin is always welcomed in our home and so is his friend that came with him but the other one is not. I said he takes advantage of everyone and we are not his family. He has family here and they don't like him staying. Gee, I don't know why. He thinks everyone should be on his schedule. Here is a little tip, hotel and rental car. He doesn't get that the world doesn't revolve around him.

So, I am going over to Auntie M's today. There is a birthday party and I'm going to go with his mom instead of waiting for him to get off work. I want to spend sometime with everyone before I leave.

My little nephew was baptized yesterday. I wish that I could have been there. He is now officially Catholic and no longer a pagan baby:) I need to call my sis and see how well he did. It didn't look like he even cried in the pics that she sent. I can't believe how big he is getting. He looks like his dad but he has my sister's eyes and expression. I'm so sad that I still haven't met him. Hopefully I will get there this summer. Baby is looking at flights for me. I'm just going to go for the weekend. I miss everyone:(
Well, I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Ciao!

I'm a mean one.

Key West was fun. At least me, baby and his cousin had fun. The three others I don't think so much. Well, we tried. We wanted to show them something besides the inside of a mall but apparently malls and cars are all they want to see. I never want to hear about how Americans are close minded when they travel. Seriously, I will slap that person. I don't understand people who don't want to see what's out there or try new things. I just don't get it!!!!
Anyways, I had to get mean with the wanderer. He actually criticized my eating habits. He was warned by Z. yet he still went there. I try not to waste my food because I know there are hungry people. I don't eat a lot at one sitting. I eat a lot of small meals. I have ALWAYS been like that. I can not sit and eat a full meal unless I am starving. And that is rare. I ordered Conch fritters (they weren't very good), mac and cheese (really good) and a house salad. Well, I ate all the mac and cheese and the salad was huge so I couldn't finish it all. I also couldn't eat the fritters because they were just nasty. I was very unhappy because I love conch fritters and I hardly ever eat them.

So I start getting grief from the wanderer. I had to tell him a thing or two. That is one thing a person will find out fast, I am not timid. The thing is I hate when people says stuff about my eating. It rarely happens as an adult but it happened a lot when growing up. I take my food home and I eat all my leftovers. Just because I don't eat a lot at once doesn't mean I don't eat!!!
I also had to tell him to lay off on the waitress. He asked for water a million times. I told him that she heard him the first time. Then he keep saying he wanted something that wasn't on the menu. Then asked what was on the menu. Well, read the damn thing!!! Grrr. I'm sure he is a nice guy but I am just butting heads with him for some reason.

I also went off on him when he told baby he should hook up with some girl that he knew at home. Um, yeah, hello!!! He was like what kind of shit are speaking? He was like my future wife is sitting next to me and you are telling me I should hook up? I was like I will leave you in the Everglades!!!!

But I did have a nice time. I think it would have been better with just the three of us but that's ok. I hate playing hostess sometimes because I hate when people have a bad time. If people visit I want them to have some fun. But I guess you can't please everyone.

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I'm going to go to the Keys today. I hope we don't have to spend hours looking for a certain someone. I told baby that I will leave people! I know I should be nice but why can't a 34 year old man not lose his group. Even little man doesn't do that and his three! I was a little mad because baby told them we were going to the keys today and someone was like I need to do this, blah, blah, blah. Baby said well you have all week to do what you need to do. This my only day off and I'm enjoying it. It wouldn't be so bad but this person isn't even family. He seems like everything should revolve around what he wants to do.

Some asshole in Ft. Lauderdale took his neighbor's cat and dumped the poor cat in the Everglades. I can understand why he was mad. The cat apparently mistook the cab of his truck as litter box. Well, that would piss me off too. But to do what he did is just evil. I would've gone postal on his ass. This is why my kitties stay inside. Of course Caesar wouldn't step a foot outside so at least I don't have to worry about him.

They also found a bear in Bavaria. He came over from Austria and Germany hasn't seen a bear in like 185 years!!! That is just crazy!!!

I really need to get my hair done. I haven't had it highlighted since December and it needs some TLC. I hope my hairdresser can fit me in. I really don't want to get my hair done in Alaska!!

So last night I went to the masjid with baby. I have never gone on a Sunday. It was weird because I was the only female there. I have never been the only one there. They didn't even have the woman's section open. So I'm doing my thing and these two boys run into the room. Boy were they shocked when they saw me!!! The look on their faces was priceless. I guess they thought they had the run of the place:) I guess they won't be doing that again!

Sunday, May 21, 2006


Ok, how cute is this little guy? I would so take this one home in a heartbeat!!! My friend has a dog like this and she is so precious!

So the plan was to take the man's cousins to the aquarium today. He had to work and couldn't take the day off. So he drops them at the flea market and I'm suppose to pick them up at one. Yeah, nothing can ever be that freaking simple. I didn't find them until 2 so by that time it was just to late to go because the last show is at 2:30. Grrr. So I dropped them off to do some more shopping. That seems like all they want to do anyway. *sigh* I mean how much can one shop? I felt better once I bought myself some cute sandals at Payless. That is a hit or miss place. Every now and then you can find a really cute pair. These are really cute and have a three inch heel. Hey, I need height. I'm only 5''.

So, I started watching Felicity last night. I never watched it when it was on air. I am so hooked!!!!

Want to hear something crazy? Me and Shakespeare got into a fight yesterday. Now, this was a first for me. I have had him for 11 years and he had never been so bratty! He wanted to be fed at 3 but it was to early because he ate at 9:30 and he doesn't get feed until 5. If I feed him early he won't eat very much and then around 7 he starts up again. So I gave him some treats and then fed him at 5. So he doesn't want what I give him. Then he doesn't want it where he eats everyday and has for the last two years. So he starts yelling at me! Ok, if you have ever had a Siamese you know what I'm talking about. So then he walks off and sits on the balcony. I go over to pet him and he turns his back to me and ignores me for two hours. Pure craziness. Yeah, I am a crazy cat lady....

Meet my other cat Shakespeare, also known as the one who wants me to sleep on the floor. Now, this cat is only 11 lbs. He isn't very big but to sleep with him one would think they were sleeping with a great dane. He kept pushing me off the bed last night! I have a queen size bed. More than enough room for the both of us. I wish he would just sleep like a normal cat!!!!

So I have been way more productive today. I haven't had the TV on once!!! I talked to my little brother, mom, went to the store so I can actually cook tonight. I worked out again!!!! I started working on cleaning out my closet again. I am being ruthless and throwing out or donating a lot. I really don't know why I have so much non useless things.

I saw yesterday that Miami is the number one city for road rage. No kidding? Tell me something I didn't know. I hate driving around here. It is pure chaos. But we don't have the greatest mix. You have the normal drivers of every city, the crazy ones, young drivers and people who just don't know how to drive. Then add on the elderly people, the tourists and foreigners. Well, then it just becomes F-U-N!!!!!

Well, I have just realized that I have been blogging for a year! I really can't believe that I have taken up a small piece of cyperland with my ramblings. Thank you sis for introducing me to the blogging world. Oh and yeah sis you need to start updating yours!!!

So boring.....

I have been such a bum lately. The BIGGEST bum. I can't seem to get into a routine of any sort and haven't done much except watch movies and TV. Really, really sad!! The sun is out once again. It rained like crazy yesterday. Of course we really needed it.
I actually worked out today! Something I haven't done in a really long time. It felt so good! Of course tomorrow I will be hating life. I know I haven't done cardio in forever and a day but I was just so sad when I felt things moving as I was running. WTH??? When did that happen? I use to be so toned! Ugh.
I cleaned my boyfriends house yesterday. His mom is never home and I thought it would be nice for her to come home to a clean house for once. A late Mother's day gift. I hope it isn't trashed by time she gets home again. Her 18 year old nephew is staying with them this summer and you know how most 18 year old boys are. Yeah, I don't even have to explain.
So I have 15 days until I leave for Alaska. I did to start planning my trip I guess. I have so much stuff I need to do and don't want to do anything! Arg!!!

Happy Friday!!

Well, I hope everyone has a good weekend. I'm sure that I will be posting again later today. I just had to post these pics. I thought they were so cute. Nothing melts my heart more that puppies and kitties. I'm so easily pleased:) Plans for today: 1. Go to the masjid. 2. Scan some photos 3. Lay out at my boyfriends pool 4. Spend the rest of the afternoon watching movies. I LOVE VACATION!!!!

Tuesday, May 09, 2006


I still can not believe that I'm done with school. I keep getting up thinking that I'm either late for something or that there is something that I must do. I have to say that I have been quite a lazy bum since Friday!!! I missed going out Friday night. I feel kinda bad because everyone went except me. I was just so exhausted that I crashed hard. I didn't make it to the birthday party Saturday either. Opps. I can be such a bad friend.
I did go to the masjid Saturday and listen to a guest speaker they had there. Amana also provided a dinner. I'm not sure why they were giving us food. But it was a good time. I still feel extremely shy and when I go there by myself. I have no clue to as why. It's weird.
I did go to my friend's barbecue Sunday. That was fun. I also went to the pinning ceremony last night. They needed ushers so we volunteered ourselves. It was really boring I must say. I was impressed that they had 78 people graduating. I think that is what our class size is down to right now. Scary. I'm not sure how many we have lost. Of course we will be picking up 13 from third semester. Our NSNA advisor told us Seniors and Juniors to come with her and it took a minute for it to sink in. We were like oh, that's us!!!! Only one more year!!!!
My plan for the rest of the day is to work on my apartment and laundry. It is getting pretty scary in here!!! Then I am going to Scrap!!!
Oh, and I finally but up some links. Seriously, I really need to work on this procrastination thing I've got going on.

I'm done!!!

Well, I am finished for the semester!! I am so glad that's over with. Ugh, talking about sucking. I was so nervous this morning. I really didn't want OB because it just isn't my strong point. Everyone else wanted OB but me. Trach care and all that I can do.
Well, I was a nervous wreck going into the whole thing but I did rather well. The lady I got was awesome and actually had to say "you are done". Because I would have kept on talking!! I had to start an IV drip, insert a Foley, administer some meds IM and order test and that was it!!! I think I lucked out. I only missed one thing so I got a 95% which is awesome because walking in there I really thought that I was going to be coming back Monday.
I can't believe that I only have a year left!!!!! Woo-hoo!!!!! I am going to go to the masjid and then I am going to actually read a real book and relax!!! I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One more day!!!

And I am finally done!!!! I took my final and it is over and I passed and now I am done with Theory!!!! Now I just have to pass my skills scenario tomorrow and I will be done with second semester. I can not wait!! Of course I have wicked butterflies just thinking about tomorrow. Everyone says it isn't that bad but I hope I don't get an OB scenario. I didn't do crap in OB. That's because I had a horrible clinical instructor who like to spend most of her time on her cell phone in an empty room.
Anyways....Some people didn't make it and I'm bummed. One was a friend of ours. I know of two that didn't make it but I'm sure there are others. We had a crappy ass talk and evaluation right before I final. It was total BS. Yeah, we need to hear about how disappointed you are in us RIGHT before our FINAL. Nice timing lady. Well, lets just say that when we got to do our surveys I gave my opinion.
We went out to lunch to celebrate the end of the semester. It was nice and laid back. I am going out tomorrow night with some friends and then to a birthday party Saturday. I think I am going to go and volunteer for the pinning ceremony. I would like to see some of my friends get pinned. I am so happy for them!
I do have to say that I know that I bitch a lot but I do like nursing school. I really love nursing (hahah, so far) and though I complain about professors, I have run into a lot that are truly great. I also have met some of the most amazing people. Sometimes it just amazes me how smart some of these people are!!! Ok, I'm done being sentimental.:)
I will be so glad to do fun stuff again!!!! The first thing I think I will do is veg for at least two days. One day in front of the TV and the next will be by the pool. Then I will watch movies again, read, go SHOPPING!!!! I have really missed shopping. I have a whole bunch of gift cards that are burning a hole in my wallet.

Break time...

I was with my study group for ten hours today!!! If my brain wasn't broken before it is now. I think I also gained about 10 lbs. while I was there. You think us nursing students wouldn't have so much junk to eat.
I think I will be up most of the night reviewing and then I will be up bright and early to meet my early morning study partner. I am so freaking nervous about this final.
I keep telling myself just two more days!!!!!! Then it's only a year. Then I can start being an adult again. Hahahaha.

Tuesday, May 02, 2006


I don't' think I can make till Friday!!! Ugh, I am so freaking tired. It didn't help that I totally bombed my med/surge hessie. Have I mentioned that Hessie sucks ass?? Well, in case I didn't, it does!!!! What is sad is that only a hand full of people passed. WTF????? GRRRRR! Some of the questions on there were just out of left field. Especially since some of the things on there we wouldn't' t know. I would like to know who comes up with this crap.
On a brighter note I did find a great halal meat store. And it is just a couple of blocks from my school!!! And they are CLEAN and FRIENDLY!!! I'm way excited to finally have found the place. Baby's mom keeps telling me to take her meat but I want my own. She cooks differently from me. I usually use boneless and she uses cut up pieces.
I also found out my grade for my paper. I got an A which is nice. I was worried because I know a lot of people who got B's and C's on theirs. Ok, I only have one final and one skills scenario and a procalc and I'm done for the summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
