Thursday, April 8th

Today I am thankful for:

The people at the MS center, being willing to share their stories with me, it amazes me how most them have such a positive attitude and outlook on life

The yummy quesidillas, black bean salad, and blueberry cobbler we had for lunch

Another beautiful day - I am starting to see more green than snow!

I learned how to make homemade soap

I found a book in the house that I haven't read yet! :o)

Wednesday, April 6th

Today I am thankful for:

Such beautiful weather!

Being able to spend time with my nieces and take them to the park

peanut butter!

my sister n law's coupon savvy

my car (I am trying to be positive about the gas prices but it is hard!)

Tuesday, April 5th

Today I am thankful for:

I got to sleep in

My dad is building Charlie a new cage

The shower water was actually hot

I still have some money left in the bank after paying rent and all my other bills except my car payment - some being the operative word :)

Ice cream :) :) :)

Monday April 4th

Things I am thankful for today:

My Client's wife who took pity on me when she realized that I hadn't had my coffee fix and sent me on a caribou run and bought me a breve vanilla latte and an light cranberry orange scone - it was very yummy, I will have to learn how to make the scone

My brother and sister n law who came and got my couch and are keeping it at their house until I can put the living room back together

I get to sleep tonight!

It isn't snowing - is it really snowing in Bemidji?

My new debit card came today - yay! (now I just have to wait for my pin # so I can use it)

Sunday, April 3rd

Today I am thankful for:

My job at Abbott

My heated blanket [yes still, even though I only use it on the first setting right now] :)

My car (I am scared of taking the bus late at night to Chicago ave)

That tonight is relatively quiet at work (knock on wood)

That I am getting a cool couch tomorrow

I am super tired this shift, definitely looking forward to not having to work tomorrow night, now to make it through my HH job tomorrow... I am fantasizing about how nice sleep would be right now, oh well, I'll make it :)
I slept through church today, oops! I think God will forgive me though - not sure why I am still so tired... I think maybe because I didn't take a nap before I came to work. maybe if I eat my salad it will perk me up.
I had to transfer from my posted station to ICU tonight, no one else would work it - I actually like it but it is definitely different from the other units.
Time to go get a room set up for an admit, the exciting parts of my job :)

Saturday, April 2, 2011

So obviously I am not good at keeping up with my blog, I used to like to journal but now it just isn't something that I really take the time to do.
A lot is new since my last post, because of my health I quit both of my jobs for a month, it wasn't an easy decision for me but God has been faithful and I now have a job that I love so it worked out in the end thanks to my brother and sister in law who took me in during that time.
I am in the process of moving to Hopkins. I Would love to live on my own (I will have a roommate) but for now, this helps me save on the rent. My roommate works at a hospital as well, we actually hardly see each other and have been using the 'note (and text) system' for the majority of our communication. I work second and fourth weekends and she works first and third and since we both work at night, if we are home at the same time we are usually sleeping the day away :o)
I have decided that I am going to try and list 5 things that I am thankful for every day - we will see if any actually make it on here periodically - I will try - but I have said that before :P
This is something that I used to do when I was attending OCC and it seems to me that it really does help you focus on a more positive attitude, I know I still tend to focus on all the things going on that I doesn't feel are resolved or not in 'the place where I want to be' but if I look back even just a couple of months I can see how blessed I have really been.
I have to get ready to do the 2 am Glucs now, happy blogging :)


...sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
is just a grain of sand
and what you've been up there searching for forever
is in your hands
when you figure out love is all that matters after all
it sure makes everything else seem so small...
