Wishing I had a life....

So lately my life consists of work, school, and homework. I am going to be applying for nursing school this spring and I will hopefully start a program in the fall. I am finishing up my last prerequisites and they are soooo time consuming! Its exhausting. I am hardly ever home... which explains why its a disaster. I have a pillow and blanket in my car and I sleep whenever I can!

The things I miss the most about when I wasn't a student are:
*Random spontaneous weeknight movies
*Cooking dinners
*attempting to bake
*Walking my dog (poor neglected mutt)
*Date night with my hubby
*Reading books for fun
*Starting new TV shows, and keeping up with them
*Needless to say Blogging
I find myself tonight wishing away the next two years and hoping someday I will have a life again!

I suck at Blogging

Well hello to anyone who has not given up on my blog!! I have found myself swamped lately. I have been working at Intermountain Medical Center since November 2010 in billing.. and I have been missing working with patients so much. So I just got a new job at the University of Utah hospital.

I am going to be working as a C.N.A. in the Surgical ICU. I am SOOO excited for this change. I feel like I am finally accomplishing things with work and school to move me closer towards the ultimate goal... graduating with my RN. I wake up everyday saying "Someday it will all be worth it!" So even more changes as we start into the fall semester. John and I are both taking about 15 credit hours at SLCC, and eventually we will both be transferring up to the U to finish up our bachelors. I will hopefully graduate December 2014 and John should graduate May 2015 :)

We have had a pretty great summer. We of course were going to school all summer long, but we did get to go to my Grandpas in Colorado for his 75th birthday in July. We also were able to go to Montana for a week and spend time with my family. I do have pictures and I will post them later!
Now off to class!

Ahhh...Spring Break

Well spring break is here and almost gone! I must say SLCC I have not missed you one bit!!! It has been such a nice break away.... although my homework is still staring at me this very moment I am happily ignoring it. I have been using my free time wisely. I spent a good four hours organizing my office. Can I just say I don't know how John found anything in there!?! How he lived without me is a frightening thought. I happily found the 2008 taxes that were MIA when we needed them this year and I am happy to say that it is officially organized.
One project down 500 projects to go! ah the joys of home-ownership
I have also been catching up on all my favorite tv shows the bachelor, glee, and supernatural! I love having free time, although it will not last.... I am dreading Monday when it is back to my ridiculous life of working 40 hours a week and taking 12 credit hours..... BOO!

A little late... But here was Christmas!

So this post is extremely late! I just started a new job over the Thanksgiving holiday and I am taking 12 credit hours this semester, so life has been pretty crazy. I am happy to say that John is now only working 1 job and I am planning on starting nursing school in Fall of 2012!!
So we had a very nice holiday this year. It was so mellow. Last year was so hectic because all the big holiday dinners and what not were at my house. So I loved just showing up and enjoying the day. We spent some of the day with John's Dad and Stepmom and some of the day with my family.

Connor is getting so big, and he loves his Uncle John. They are so fun the watch!

Connor was really excited about opening gifts this year. He would open a gift and then set them in a neat little pile then go onto the next!

For Christmas Eve Andrew, Aleta, and Connor spent the night in Fairview with her family so John, Crystal, Mom, and I went to Tepanyaki's for dinner! We had a good time and had delicious food!
