Tuesday's Tidbits

I'm sitting her enjoying a cup of hot chocolate before bed. It is nice to be able to relax before bed instead of trying to finish up my paperwork for clinical. I had all my care plans done by 6!! Ok, that is just amazing for me. I also got most of my stuff on my to-do list done. All except the working out part. Go figure.
So I had my last lecture class today. woo-hoo!! But on the downside, I have 3 clinicals, 5, I repeat 5 exams. That is just pure craziness!! I have my last exam, a procalc, one hessie for med/surg, one for peds and then the final. Yuck!!! But on the plus side there are no papers to write!! Oh, and I have a billion things that I have to complete online because I freaking have to wait to the last minute to do everything.
My mom has been Christmas shopping early this year. And I guess she is going the online route because I have started getting packages. Of course I can't open them and it's driving me CRAZY! The only person she has left is my youngest nephew and my brother. Pretty impressive I must say. I apparently didn't get the procrastination gene from my mom.

Monday Musings

I'm sitting here trying to get motivated to study when I would rather be at the beach. I don't go to the beach very often but today is the perfect day. It is gorgeous outside!!! We did have a week of freezing weather, brrrr. I have to laugh because it was only in the 60's and I was FREEZING! I have become such a wimp. I mean hello, I endured winters in Chicago, wth is wrong with me?

So school is going well. I got to remove staples the other week something I haven't done before. That was actually lots of fun. I also got to see a pic line removed. I guess I didn't realize how long those things are!! It had to feel weird coming out!!
I did really well on my last exam. I mean I kicked some boo-tay!! I got a 98!!! I almost passed out when that grade came up. I don't know how I did it. I am super nervous about the final. I remember nothing from Peds! ARGGG!!!!!!

Thanksgiving was great as usual. Well, except for the fact that I didn't get to spend with one single member of my family. I hate being away from them sometimes. But it was a nice time and the turkey was superb. I mean really, it was the best turkey I have ever had. I was lazy and didn't make a single thing this year. I was exhausted and just couldn't get the energy.

The nikah planning is going well, I found my lengha!! I love it!! Ok, I was starting to panic. I was having a problem because I wasn't going to spend some of the crazy prices for one. I mean how many times am I going to wear it? But I found one that I absolutely love!! I will post a pic but I haven't picked it up yet. His sisters were really sweet and looked for me and I spent way to much time online looking for them. I did see some really nice ones online but I was afraid that I was cutting it too close on time. I guess that's what I get for waiting to long!!!
His sister was really sweet and made an address chart for me and labels and even sent me some wedding stamps for the invites. It was much appreciated!!

So, someone hit my car today. I always park far away from everyone and I still get freaking hit. It isn't bad but it is noticeable. Bastards. I hope that it doesn't cost too much to fix. I guess that's the trouble with having a new car. With my old car it could have gotten hit and I wouldn't have even noticed, hahaha.

I'm a little late with catching up with the world and just read about the men who were taken off the plane for praying. I shouldn't be shocked but I am. I just can not believe that people can be so narrow minded. I will make an effort never to fly U.S. Airways.

There have been some odd searches lately.
How to say Masha Allah
Caffeine and impotence, sorry can't help you there!!
Thyroid Cancer
Hessie, I'm tired of this one, we all know how I feel about the hessie exam
toe rings and salawar kameez
pixie and Florida, yes there are pixies in Florida
amira's nikah. I found this one just odd....

Tuesdays Tidbits

Well, today as been very uneventful. Not much going on except trying to get everything done on my to-do list. I'm sure I'm getting a lot done by being on here blogging, eh?:)

We went to the caters last night. The food was good and the place was spotless. So I think we are going to go with them. I didn't know that she was going to get a cater. Because that wasn't the original plan. So I talked to a friend and she said to just let his mom have this one. I'm going to try and do that. It's just hard when I'm use to being in control of things, especially when it's my nikah. I'm just letting everyone enjoy this one because when it comes to my wedding I will have final say in everything.

We got our welcome letter yesterday. We also got our forms to pick what rotation we wanted first. Either med/surg or psych. We also got to put down three hospitals we would like. The end is near. I just have to pass clinical, pass two more exams, two Hessies and pass my final!!! 8 more days of actual school!!! I have to renew my cpr this Sat. Ugh. I also going to try and get my procalc out of the way on Friday. I don't want a repeat of last semesters drama!

Very Boring Post.

It's 11:12 p.m. and I really should be in bed. But I can't sleep. Sucks to be me. Especially since I get up at 5 a.m. Mmmm...that might not be happening tomorrow.

So I was suppose to go to a really awesome lecture today. Baby was going to go with me and this other couple. Well, baby started a new job Sat. so he couldn't go because he had to work today. Boo. So I was going to ride with nice couple but he got called in. Boo-hiss.
So I went by myself. The drive was horrible because apparently every Sunday driver decided that University Drive was going to be the perfect route for the scenic drive, grrrr. Well, I never found the Bldg. so I walked around like a compete dolt and no one knew anything. I mean, how can you go to school and not know your own campus? So I missed the lecture.:(

But I guess it was for the best because I wasn't feeling so well today. I came back home and took a three hour nap, thus why I can't sleep now. I did finally get through a HUGE pile of mail that has been sitting for way too long.

I heart Saturdays!

Well, I am finally rested and my house is cleaned, my laundry is caught up and I have my sanity back. All good.

It was a really busy week. I was lacking on sleep so when Friday rolled around I wasn't the most pleasant person to be around. Just ask baby.

I had an exam on Tuesday that went very well, masha allah. My clinical day on Wed. was fabulous. All except the patient that went MIA. I didn't realize that he wasn't coming back until 11:30. We are off the floor at 12pm. Apparently the RN forgot to mention that he was being moved to a different floor in report. So I only had one patient and all went well.

I spent Thursday shadowing a nurse in OR. She was super cool but the surgeries were blah. Just a veriocelectomy (sp?) and a vasectomy. I missed the thyroidectomy. That would have been really interesting. Not to mention better than staring at someone's testicles. So the first nurse had to leave and was replaced by another nurse. She was a tad bit annoying. She said the most annoying thing when I left. "Don't forget to wash your hands. Remember that we wash our hands after we take off our gloves". Really? Because they never freaking taught us that one lady. It took all I had to hold in what I truly wanted to say.

I have been a tad bit frustrated lately with people. I have been getting treated like I either know nothing or I am getting treated like I'm freaking 18. Mom told me that I need to let some lioness out and maybe people will back off. I'm just afraid that a little too much will come out at this point.

So I got into my "first" wedding fight. Well, ok, not so much a fight. More like me screaming like a mad woman. It was over the Nikah and it wasn't pretty. I feel really bad now but I was just frustrated with his mom. I know she doesn't mean any harm but sometimes she just gets to me. Everything that I suggested was knocked down.

So, I have start the official wedding planning. I have found a dress that I love but I don't know if I will like it when I see it in person. I have also found a couple of places to look at for the ceremony/reception. I have decided to make my bridesmaids cards asking them to be in the wedding. I've never made cards so wish me luck! I'm having more than I planned on. My MOH, 4 bridesmaids, 2 jr. bridesmaids and two flower girls.

So, I'm going to try to be productive tonight!!!:) I did to start working on some papers and start planning my booth for women's day.

Well, nothing has gone according to my plan today. Pooey! I had a very nice to-do list and plans of getting up early and getting everything done. I think I got maybe two thing done on my list. I am beginning to hate my to-do list because I never seem to get anything accomplished anymore!

I went to the health department yesterday and I have never been so bored in my life. Seriously, it was a total waste of time. I saw nothing. Nothing! the nurses didn't see one patient. Very boring. It was weird because the doctor's do the assessment and the cna's do the vitals and the nurse just does the immunizations and teaching.
Wednesday clinical was interesting. I didn't have time to be bored. It was non-stop. But I did get to discontinue a central line and that was pretty cool. I get to go back to the OR next week. I hope I see something more interesting than I saw last time.
