Just a couple of things I've been thinking of lately that I thought to add to the blog.
Had a really good week school-wise. We had an awesome wound & ostomy lecture from the Wound Team at Banner Thunderbird. Saw all sorts of gruesome pictures. Cracked me up how very 'into' her job the gal was...she was very amusing. It was gross, but also cool. Next week are our of-the-devil SIM clinical simulations (which is what gave me my nervous breakdown last semester, so I'm not looking forward to them!) and then the week following we start our clinicals at Good Sam downtown. At that point, the semester will feel half-over, although it's not, really.
I mentioned previously I'd been walking/biking/running in the mornings. Well I've stepped things up. After we came back from Labor Day camping I started running every morning. Crazy, right? Me? The Loather-of-all-things-running-related! I run 6 days a week for 30 minutes straight and have done as much as 2.3 miles. Ok so that's super slow, right? Something like a 13 or 14 minute mile. But I'm running it, which is more than I've ever done in my life. Ever. I still don't love it, and no, Christy, I'm still waiting for those endorphins to show up, but every morning, I'm out there at 5:30ish, huffing and puffing and burning calories. Never thought I'd see the day.
Last night just for fun I started speaking in a *really bad* English accent. The kids thought it was hilarious. Ethan can barely control himself once I start. It's pretty funny. I'm really not great at accents, but you'd think I was doing stand-up comedy he laughs so hard. Easily amused.
Our dryer's still broken. So I'm drying things in the back yard. It stinks. We don't have the budget to buy new and I'm afraid to go Craigslist, so I'm waiting for the magical dryer fairy to visit me. Or at least for someone to know someone who knows someone who's selling. :) In the meantime, our clothes are crunchy and wrinkled looking and I hate ironing!
I started back up with the ward choir last Sunday. Our numbers are super few, so we need new voices! You altos in the ward, I know who you are and I'm not afraid to come after you personally. It would be awesome to have 4 or 5 of us next week. That would just about double our choir. Ha.
I've been in the middle of three books for weeks. *sad sigh* I miss my fiction.
Going to the temple today with Dan (that means Chipotle for lunch, yay!) and then our ward's Progressive Dinner for couples at night. How cool will that be?! Like an entire day of date time with my hubby. It'll be nice since he just came off a 48-hour shift. Poor guy...don't know how he does it.
Tomorrow Sean and Dan are going up to Slide Rock with the Boy Scouts all day. Cameron has a flag football game back here at home, and at night the city is showing "Rio" at the stadium. Should be fun. Should have pictures to share. Should hopefully not take a week to post them. *grin*
Happy weekend everybody!
