I can hardly believe that it has been nearly 18 months since my last post to my little blog. I’m so sorry to have been gone for so long, but boy, life over here has become crazy hectic! I keep taking pictures of my projects and recipes, writing up patterns in my spare time, and thinking, “As soon as I make an ‘I’m Back!’ post then I can start posting these things.”. Well, that didn’t work out so well.
So, let me fill you in a little on what has been going on in my life. The big news is that I am not only officially a nursing student, but I am now halfway to my RN! This has been my dream for the past 10 years and a goal that I have been actively working towards for the last 5 years. This is the main reason I have been absent from my blog for so long. Nursing school is crazy and amazing and hard all at the same time, but I am enjoying everyday. Even the days I want to cry and pull my hair out because I can’t write another care plan or cram another lab value into my exhausted brain. Well, maybe I don’t enjoy those days so much, but it’s all part of the journey.
Life is about the same outside of nursing school. My husband is working for a company closer to home with better hours so that’s been a really awesome change for us. My kids are still active in sports. I have a soccer player and a football player. They both want to do swim team, karate, water polo, surfing, basketball, and I think I heard mention of lacrosse the other day. I don’t think there are many sports that they would say “no” to, but unfortunately we just can’t handle all of those activities right now. Plus, they’re kids, I don’t want to work them so hard that they burn out on everything. They also do chess club and art classes after school from time to time.
I have still been taking a lot of pictures of my life and of course, my crochet. I even learned how to knit, which is lovely, however I am terribly slow at it. I’ll just post a bunch of pictures and if you have any questions about a pattern or anything, just shoot me a comment and I’ll get back to you!
Please visit my friend Jodie’s Etsy page, SimplyChicBoutique74, to check out more of her items. She makes some really fun stuff and she loves custom orders! I gave her the saying I wanted for the jazz tumbler and she came up with the rest, which turned out even better than I expected!
Well, I think that’s about it for now. I have a few other projects that I’m working on and there are a couple recipes that I’d like to post as well. Now that my “I’m Back!” post is complete, I can start sharing some of my other goodness with you guys again.
Go…..create something beautiful today!
