Well it is 3:00 and I just caught up on reading blogs. Unfortunately, my reader doesn't go back more than 30 days apparently, but that is ok...I'll catch up when I need to if I don't understand something. I wasn't able to comment on everyone's..I just am not in the swing of this anymore..but I'll get there eventually.

It has been interesting, reading about other single mom's new or old relationships, new jobs,  new parenting issues, and new situations in life.

My heart goes out to all of them...and how I missed them all so much.  I am glad to be able to find time again for myself, even if it is in the middle of the night while Brooke sleeps behind me.

In the meantime, a few things you didn't know was going on.

Remember in my Hell froze over post(ok..nevermind, I guess I never wrote that post, it was in July) little brother got married...yeah, well they have split.  I probably shouldn't get into details, but I kinda understand what has happened, though I think they are splitting a little too fast, or at least planning on doing it permanently a little too fast, but what can you do.

Brooke had her last day at daycare last week. I sobbed. I will tell that story in another post, because I really feel it needs a post all to it's own. I have made decisions that are going to affect our lives for the next few months while I wait on taking boards.

I really have a lot I want to talk about, so I am going to keep my Live writer open on my computer when it is on, so I can just jump into a post when I feel inspired, but until then, I should get some sleep.

Catching up on reading...

Since nursing school completely consumed by day to day life, I have neglected reading some of my favorite blogs.  So if you happen to get a comment from an old blog from me...Sorry it is so late.


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

How hard is it? I mean really...

How hard is it to blog?  Apparently, I find it real difficult, hence you haven't heard from me in a long time.  I'm going to try to get moving on this again, because outside of a take home final....I will be officially....




So there ya have it...That is where I am at.  Brooke and I have had a very busy last year with school, I didn't think it would ever end.  Now I have to get ready to take boards, probably late January/early February.

I have probably lost a lot of my readers, mostly because of my lack of posting, but to be honest, I haven't had a chance to read all the blogs I used to read. I will get back to that eventually, I promise.  First, though, I have a bedroom full of a year of neglect.  There is no food rotting under the covers, or poopy diapers from when Brooke was a baby sitting is just that I have clutter everywhere.  I must have about 50 nursing books alone just kinda leaning against the piece of metal bookshelf they are on.  My closet is just filled with things piled in there in boxes with no rhyme or reason other than..."I don't know what to do with this" pile.


Brooke is doing wonderful.  She is blossoming into a beautiful child with stubborness that she certainly does not get from me..(blinking innocent eyes).

She has taken on phrases such as "What the hectic?"  to responding to the comment "Brooke you are so silly" with "Yes, I am."  She is still obsessed with toes, can not break her of that...AND she is OBSESSED with her Crocs which make me look like a bad mom when she is wearing them in 30 degree weather...but hey, she is wearing socks, and there is no snow on the ground, So MIND YOUR OWN DAMNED business.

I am excited with the things to come...Wow...once I find a nursing job, 2 more months and me and the kid will be living in our own little home.  It's hard to believe, but it is now becoming more real.  I have basically sworn off relationships the last 2 years...and yes to those saucy people I know...I even sworn off sex.  Sex makes life too complicated while in nursing school. Especially when you aren't dating anyone specific.  In order to have sex, you have to meet someone, which means you have to have a babysitter, which means you sometimes have to have money, which means you have a job, which means you have little time for studying, which means that when you are are not paying much attention to your child, which means the child has a lot of resentment, which means she starts to act out, which means you get exhausted dealing with the acting out, which means that you lose precious study time......well you get the picture.

I look forward to catching up on everyone's blogs.  I hope you all still remember me.

Oh yeah, Im getting rid of's just too intense for me...too many rules...I'm already structured by rules with school..Don't need anymore.
