Hey People!

Time to dust off the cobwebs of my poor neglected blog! I have been sooo busy with school (yes, school!) I have just sorta brushed this back on the shelf. Well, no more. Maybe if I start spewing out my thoughts again, I will be able to get things accomplished because I won’t be be thinking about them. Anywho, just wanted to say hello, and will post something again before the end of the week!

Back to Normal…

Second week back at work and life is nice again…ho hum…five weeks until school starts; I got my schedule posted online the other day (yay!) As soon as that school loan money rolls in, I get to buy books and school supplies! And scrubs, because all medical assistant students have to them…which kind of rocks my world a little…I don’t know why, because it will just add to the never-ending pile of laundry. grrr. I also get a school laptop for schoolwork with special software so that I can use my personal laptop at home for my incessant Facebook gaming and blog stalking surfing activities, which I will scale back on once school starts, so I am slowly weaning myself a little each night, which hasn’t been so bad. I also need to start curbing my TV addiction, which I admit is a little out of control. I will have to see how this one goes…one battle at a time.

Post-Surgical Boredom

Oh my…is July yet? Between the Lifetime Movie Network and all of those wonderfully tearful Hallmark channel movies, I may never watch television again…maybe. Daisy has already decided I need to go back to work as well. I think she feels a need to entertain me and she kinda craps out with that every morning about an hour after we get up and takes her mid-morning nap.



Lunch breaks up the day though…for example, today we are having baby yukon potatoes and this chicken dish I made in the crock pot yesterday, and was going to eat, but then went over to my parents house and had turkey burgers with my dad because my mom was out of town and he was lonely…it goes like this ~ put 1 lb of chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock pot, pour 1/4 to 1/2 cup of white wine on top, and add packet of Lipton’s Savory Herb w/ Garlic Soup mix and cook on low all day. This recipe is on the box of the Lipton’s but I modified it of course. It was pretty good. I think next time, just for fun, I will make it according to the directions on the box, just to see what it is REALLY supposed to taste like, but for this time, I just wanted to be simple.



Pre-Surgery Craziness

Today is the week before surgery and my house clean and *hope, hope* it stays this way, but it still is only Monday and my parents and I don’t leave for Minneapolis until next Monday, so lots can happen until then, so who knows! Hopefully between work and sleeping, everything will stay clean! On another topic, I have news that I just can’t wait to tell, and since not a lot of people know about my blog, I feel safe spilling the beans about it here ~ I am going back to school! I know, know, I must be crazy! It’s been 6, no seven years since I have sat in a classroom, but I am feeling at a standstill in my life right now and feel like a change needs to happen, so school is in order! I am enrolling at Lake Area Technical Institute here in Watertown and will be in the Occupational Tech Assistance program. I am not sure yet whether or not if I am going to be in the program yet or starting generals because there is a waiting list, so I either will be a PT student just doing my generals this fall or will be a FT student in the OTA program…it depends on this waiting list thingy that I won’t know about for sure until the middle of June. I am very excited and a little freaked out all at the same time. I will let you all know when it is official! P.S. no telling!


I got busy and haven’t posted for a few days…and by busy I mean I have had a few days off of work and went on a Facebook and TV bender and blissed myself out. It was fabulous. I got snapped back into reality when I woke up this morning and it snowing…again…halfway through April…oh joy?!?! Daisy is deeply saddened too…she has had the window closed for the last 4 days and has resorted to sitting in a box that I refuse to carry up the stairs from the Fed-Ex guy and ignoring me because I’m pretty sure she’s convinced I’m keeping the window closed to annoy her…poor cat…if she only knew. I did however, read the weather forecast and we are upgrading to plain jane rain for the next nine days!

Lost under Laundry


Just another ordinary Tuesday, but with with 4 loads of laundry under my belt, I was flying high! I got up and cracked open the windows so Miss Daisy could get her fresh air high, and got cracking…six hours and plenty of Facebook procrastination / TV time later, we had the laundry done! If I only I could apply the same discipline and motivation towards the dishes, I could conquer the world! Daisy and I rewarded ourselves by putting our flip flops and kitty leash on and going outside for a bit after dinner and going for a walk in the backyard.
