Weekly Updates and a Blog Survey

Happy Wednesday! I’ve been off work for the last few days, thankfully! I haven’t been sleeping well since finding out I’m pregnant, despite being exhausted. I think it’s the changes in hormones and also feeling like my boobs weigh 10,000lbs.

My sister came in town last week, so pretty much all of my time off work has been spent with my sister and nephew! I’ve been really loving seeing my nephew! He’s at such a fun age (4)!


He still won’t cooperate for pictures! Oh well! At least he’s fun to play with! His little voice melts my heart and he gets so excited to see me! I really wish they didn’t have to go back to Wisconsin next week!


Aside from lots of family time, I’ve managed to go to the gym pretty regularly again. I’m really liking being back and I’m reactivating my ClassPass again too. I waited because when I went to reactivate it, it said I’d be charged the monthly rate of $99, but Atlanta is $79! Also, I had just paid my hold fee a week ago ($20 a month), so I wanted to know if it’d be refunded. I finally heard back today and they said the fee is still $79 and she will also refund my hold fee, so I’m hoping it’ll be up and running again soon. I’m looking forward to getting back to regular classes!

I got my haircut today! FINALLY! I really want to get bangs again, but I’m waiting until Kassie’s wedding is over in August since I’ll be doing some sort of up-do since it’s an outdoor, August wedding in Georgia! I don’t want my bangs getting all frizzy and crazy in the humidity!


If anybody thought I was kidding about living in these white V-neck shirts, I have lots of evidence. I’m pretty sure every picture I’ve uploaded has me in the same shirt. And they are all on different days. Also, I’m deciding on dying my hair back darker again. It’ll eventually lighten up, especially since it has to be a semi/demi-permanent dye. But, I kind of like the color in the picture above (which is about 4″ of roots, and then the bottom always stays dark from the dye)! So I just can’t decide now!

I got the job on the tele floor! My first day is July 27th (for orientation), so I’m going to try to keep my current hours the same in the ER to stay at the higher pay level as long as possible. The pay cut is really going to suck, but life isn’t all about money. (It should be all about travel, but baaaaaabieeeesssss….) I’m actually really looking forward to doing something different, even though I really don’t think I’m going to enjoy floor nursing. But, four days a month! That’s all!

I’m about to have dinner with Jon and then we’re probably going to Trivia! Well, he is, and I’m deciding still. I had my first kickball game tonight, but the weather is pretty horrible and I’m not that hardcore! So, I’m going to opt for indoor activities and hope kickball is rescheduled!

Now, for your reading pleasure, a survey!

A – Age: 29
