New Job

Two weeks ago, I started a new job as a RN Supervisor at the State Veteran's Home in Huntsville. It wasn't the job I had planned for me, but it's the job that God must of had planned for me because 90 applications and 9 interviews later, it was the one that made me an offer. I'm adjusting to the environment, finding peace in the situation. It's not the hands on nursing that my heart desires, but hopefully, it's the nursing experience that the hospitals seem to think a new grad is lacking. Craig graduated from Athens State on May 4th with his Bachelor's and I couldn't be more proud of him for finishing his degree when the road seemed long and endless. I'll leave those who have hubby's that smoke with a link to gurkha cigars.

My Easter Weekend

Another Easter weekend in the books. Back to work tomorrow. Yesterday, we ate the The Old Cookstove in Danville and oh my, if you've never been, you really should go. It's run by the Mennonites and it's open on Friday and Saturday. They have an all you can eat buffet with more food & desserts that should be allowed in one building. It was heavenly. We will definitely be going back. I also got a new pink fishing pole so that Craig and I can spend some time together while I attempt to fish "princess style." We didn't get to go yesterday because of the rain. I may have to see if I can convince Craig to buy me one of the jackets I found here columbia rain jackets. Sounds like a plan to me.

Best Movie Ever

Why is it, that still years after Blu-Ray came to life, that the best movie ever is still not available????

I think I would be just over the moon if they would release "Major Payne" on Blu-Ray. I absolutely love, love, LOVE that movie. I think it's one of our absolute favorites. As a matter of fact, it's on right now.

Classic lines, classic lines.

If you ever want to try some good recipes, my go to sites are The Pioneer Woman and Southern Plate. They always have good stuff and so far, everything I have made from either site has been added to the dinner rotation. I promise that neither site will let you down and I love the fact that they have pictures as you cook so you know what your dish is supposed to look like while its "in process."

November Bliss

I am so happy that November is here. That means I am super close to graduation. I love fall. I love being able to open up my windows and snuggle up. You know the windows are up when Duke decides that he wants to snuggle with his mommy under the covers. I love it! This is my favorite time of year.

One thing I've missed while I've been in nursing school is the time to read what I want to read. It sucks when you feel guilty for picking up a fiction book over a highly stimulating nursing text. I had a chance to read a little this morning while I was waiting for my 13 hr shift to finish up. I love the opportunity to get free books mp3. Who doesn't love free? I sure do and especially with the holidays right around the corner.
