Happy New Year

A new year.  A new day. 

Nursing school resumes full-time in three days.  We had homework over our winter break.  HOMEWORK!  Who does that?! 

The holidays were amazing and fantastic.  The house is de-Christma-fied.  The boys had SO much fun looking for Elf on the Shelf this year, opening presents and listening to all the great Christmas stories and movies.

We are currently in one of the coldest of cold snaps to hit the Midwest in a couple decades.  NOT loving it.  I despise cold.  Why do I live in Wisconsin?  Because my family and friends are here and I would take a few weeks of whining about the cold rather than living in an earthquake, hurricane, Nor'easter, tornado zone. 

I got another job as a tutor at my college.  That should be thrilling along with the 17 credits this quarter.  Only 80 days until I am through the other side.  I am pretty nervous about this one coming up.  SIX girls I believe have to retake the Clinical Rotation site that we are going to! That means they didn't PASS! (And they don't have that big of a class).  We shall see.  I just have to make it through one day at a time. 

Finished reading "The Book Thief," this morning.  I highly recommend it.  I read three novels over my break.  Feeling very relaxed.  I now realize why I enjoy going into those 'worlds.'  It just makes reality seem so much more 'light.'   Wanting to get motivated to workout (30 minutes a day of walking would be enough at this juncture)...  But I just am unable to muster up the gumption. Time will open up in the next 365 for me... I pray.  I hope to focus MUCH MORE on my physical and mental health wellness once I pass nursing school and am shooting for a passing N-CLEX!    Catch ya on the flip side!
