Why Nursing?

Why Nursing?

One of my friends/coworkers asked me the other day – “Why did you go into nursing?” “Why Nursing?” Oh gosh, what a question. After these last few months, I have seriously asked myself “WHY?” so many times and have honestly forgotten why I went into this career. So let me try to tell you why I chose nursing. What has helped me keep going during this slump in the career? To be frank, paychecks and student loans. I got bills…

Blogging is difficult.

Blogging is difficult.

I find writing down and blogging my ideas, thoughts, aspirations, crafts, creations, and just stuff challenging. Why? I don’t find my interests to be something someone else may be interested in. My life is chaotic, full, and fulfilling. I like the things I do. I have bad and good days. I have things that stress me out and things that bring me joy. However, I just never believe my ideas are good enough to be shared. I love using my…

Plants, plants, and more plants…..

Plants, plants, and more plants…..

Oh dear! Yesterday was such a full, busy, tiring day! We had lovely breakfast burritos for breakfast then went to Flower World in Snohomish. I wanted to go there because they had the best selection of succulents the last time we were there. I did not like the ones from Home Depot or QFC when we were there the last time. I picked up some little glass orbs from World Market for the previous succulents I had acquired.  At Flower…

Completed Bath Bombs :)

July 4th with my Brit!!

July 4th with my Brit!!

Well, my lovely Brit and I had an amazing July 4th. We spent the majority of it doing yard work! Hahahaha, we got an amazing mower! Battery powered, isn’t took loud, and still works great!! Look at it! We were able to get all the grass mowed and then replanted our honeysuckle and some Sweet Williams. Of course there was a Home Depot trip in the middle. Mark and I had some delicious homemade ham and swiss croissants this morning…

Mornings, kids, plants, glories, gardening, dogs…. Oh the busy-ness of life!

Oh goodness! Where to even start! We MOVED! YAY! Last week we moved to our new house and it is a lovely house! We moved to be closer to Mark’s kids and also to have a very house of our own. The children LOVE the house!! So exciting! They had a lot of fun moving and packing while we were doing so the week they were with us. I had a lot of fun teaching them things and hanging out…

The New Digggggs!

The New Digggggs!

So today Mark and I woke up, had breakfast and immediately started packing our house…. We made a huge dent!  The kitchen is basically empty and our bedrooms are pretty much packed! Mark OCD’ed on all the boxes and organized those. After getting fed up with packing for an hour or two we then decided to head to our house and check out the yard. We of course used Jazzpurr as an excuse to go “check it out” just so…

Simple Musings

I am kinda sad we are going to be moving away from this lovely town home in Redmond 🙁 It is always so peaceful on the balcony, even the cats love watching the kids run back and forth.   However, it is time for us to be on our way to the next series in our lives together, Mark and I. We are getting a lovely house together! We are really excited to decorate, tend to, and make it ours…

Being a “Step”

Being a “Step”

I have to say one of the biggest struggles I have had in my recent years has been being a “step parent”. I do not want to be the kid’s mother, I do not want to take their mother’s place… honestly, I am not even sure I want to ever give birth to a child and ever be a “mother”.  But having these lovely kids in and out of my life has proven to be very emotionally challenging.  I love them…

Life, kids, and the future husband of my world :)

Recently I have been around children a lot, working a lot, and just all over living life a lot. You see, Mark and I are getting a house, we have his kids every other weekend (plus other BONUS weekends that I LOVE with them), we do things with just us the other weekends, and I am now working day shift (Which is AWESOME). I love being home with him and the kids while they are here in the evenings. We…
