Looking Forward


There’s a lot coming up for me.

This Friday we are going to New York to visit a college that Dragon is interested in. Long drive.  Read the rest of this entry

Woot!


I now have the almighty C (and not enough sleep). I can already feel the super powers flowing through me. I shall now be able to conquer the world… Um, yeah. So, I passed my test 🙂 And I now have the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Certification and get to add that C to my signature. Come on, what’s better then tacking on a C? It also means I get a raise for doing the same job which is always nice. But mostly, I’m just glad that the studying is behind me. Now I just need to survive all the over time lined up until the end of May. In June we’re going to visit Monkey’s family for his sister’s graduation. Then in July Monkey and I are going to the OCD conference in San Francisco. I’m super excited about that. Yeah, that’s what I’m doing with my vacation time. I won’t be working as much over time June and July, I don’t think. So, that will be nice. Hell, that’s kind of like getting a vacation unto itself.

C


Tomorrow is the board cert exam… Incoming C?

I hope so. 0800 in the fucking morning >.< Why can’t there ever be a test time for 0000? Hell, even 2000 would be reasonable. But nope, it’s gotta be at a time when someone should be asleep.

Bleh.

Crickets Chirping…


Crickets Chirping…

Wow, been kinda quiet around here. Sorry about that. Got sucked into the work rabbit hole. I’ve been working 6 (sometimes 7) days a week and when that day off hits I get to play catch up with the personal life. When I get out of work I’ve been a slug lately. I’ve got to get back into the habit of doing things rather then playing video games or watching utube videos…

The Sun is Out… Sort of


It’s day shift. What was I thinking? I really dislike day shift. Yet here I am, at work. Bleh. Taking a break and wondering why I am here. Not really tired and it’s not been a bad morning. But days for me are like staying up late and just aren’t supposed to be the time for doing things. Days are a good time for drooling on one’s self. And no, I’m not drooling. There is sun shine, sort of. I’m sure the sun is out, some where behind those clouds. Either way. It’s too bright. I just don’t know how you day shifters do this all the time!

Piggie Update 032517


Things continue to busy, but they are going well. Still studying cray-cray and have a while of that yet to go. Been working over time and expect that will continue also. Always overtime in my life though. 😛 I have an addiction to work, I think. Could be worse, I suppose. Read the rest of this entry

Incoming Busy


So, why is life getting busier for me? I’m currently studying for the Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing Board Certification exam. There’s a mouthful, eh? Basically, this is a certification that you are a specialist in the field. Then I will get to add a spiffy C to my signature (insert your oh and ah here). Oh yeah, that’s right, I shall be the proud Read the rest of this entry

Menopause


So, I’m back at working crazy hours. If you know me, even a little, this shouldn’t surprise you. Unfortunately, it isn’t leaving me as much time to work on my blogs as I would like. I keep looking at the calendar and see all the days that I haven’t posted anything and I feel like I am slacking >.< The heavy over time is likely to continue for a while. No idea how long really, but probably for a while. That being said, I can fore see the blog posts continuing to be spotty. 😦 I feel like a menopause writer! All irregular. Looking at my blog is giving me hot flashes. I have mood swings when I think about not writing. Varies from “I don’t give a fuck” to “Shit I gotta find some time to write a post.” Yup. Sounds like menopause to me…

Heart Wrench


One would should have the diagnosis of PTSD at the age of 10. This is killing me. Some times I’m not sure that I’m equipped for working with the kiddos…

Piggie Update 120916


Things have been busy. Been trying to get everything made for Xmas and the day is quickly approaching. Feels like a looming cloud. This is how this time of year always is for me. Taking on Inktober only made it more so. Speaking of which, I still haven’t gotten all those sketches scanned in and posted yet. I’ll probably not be getting to that until Jan comes around. Sorry about that. I really did draw. Really. Then with Nano. Read the rest of this entry
