the last week of January

I'm thinking I'm not enjoying 2009 very much! Much to my dismay, a few of our lice friends decided to stick around, so we're still working on that issue. We've also had colds & pink-eye. I'm training to be charge nurse at work & am definitely not enjoying that very much. The rules change every day, so I'm having trouble knowing what I'm supposed to do! I also have assertiveness issues, so I tend to get walked all over alot of times. I'm also a little freaked out by the recession because we have alot of debt & have not been very good at getting out. I think both of our jobs are safe, but the ability to get any extra hours/overtime is becoming limited. Lastly, I am not getting any of my emails, which is driving my a little crazy because I just know there is something important in one of them I am missing, even though I rarely receive anything that important!

Now for some less dreary talk. I have officially watched every episode of the OC! I started watching episodes when I worked @ ETMC my friend Tracy's daughter had all the seasons on DVD so we watched them on slow nights. When I quit there, I was happy to find all the episodes airing on SoapNet, so thanks to the DVR I began watching where I had left off & finished this week. I have also gotten caught up on Lost & Grey's Anatomy. I guess there is a perk to not getting extra hours at work after all ;)!

PhotobucketI bought a purse on eBay this week. I have been looking for a new one for awhile because the lockers at my new job are 1/3 the size of the lockers at my old job & I'm having trouble squeezing my giant purse in there. I looked on & loved many of the purses on there, but not the price, so I searched eBay & was able to find NWT Fossil purses for much cheaper! This is the purse I chose - a Fossil black & white tote. I'm very excited, I hope it comes soon & I hope my friend Camillia approves! I also hope it fits better in the locker & I can fit all my stuff in it, all of which I assure you is necessary that I have - LOL!!

Cute Sophie talk of the week - when she is watching Dora the Explorer on TV, if you ask her what she is watching she says "Du-du-du-du-du-Dora" like in the theme song. She is such a cutie-pie! But she won't even think about sitting on the potty, so potty-training isn't going too well!

I bought a study guide for the MAT which is the test I need to take to get into graduate school. If I can take this test in the next couple of weeks, I may have time to try to get accepted for the fall, otherwise it will be next spring.

I bought a couple of other books to read for fun. I've not had an interest in reading very much since nursing school, but I'm trying to get back into it. My friend Jamie got me interesting in the Shopaholic series which I have read the 1st two, so I bought the 3rd one now. I'm also excited that they have made the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic! The other book I got is The boy in the Striped Pajamas which I started reading one night at work I was sitting in the nursery with a baby & the mom had left the book on the crib so I picked it up & before I knew it I had read 6 chapters so I just had to buy it & finish it. I've heard this book also has a movie coming out. These may be the 1st 2 movies where I have actually read the book 1st!

That's all for now, hope everyone is having a good 2009 so far!

If you want a good book, go get Karen Kingsbury's book "Redemption". It's Christian fiction & will suck you in really quick. But I should warn you, Redemption is the first book in a series of serieses. There are about 20 books altogether & when you read the first one you'll be hooked & want to read them ALL!
