Tonight I got to spend some time with my nephew Cooper. It was so fun, Mom and I and Loren Kari and Cooper all went to eat and just hung out watching tv and I got to give Cooper a bath. It was so fun and I just love seeing Cooper smile and giving him a hundred kisses.

Baby it's cold outside... And Inside!!

We came home tonight at 1000pm and our heater was broken!!!! Thankfully it was only 64 degrees and just the cats feet were cold but the house felt like 30!!! Of course being a Daddy's girl I cried and said let's call my daddy but then I realized my man is capable, haha. So he called a local company and they came over and were soooooooo nice and helpful, they definately have our business!!!! We had a bad ignitor among other things, needless to say it is working but we need a new heater come to find out. So until it starts working all the way better, it's snuggle time which isn't bad :) I have had an amazing weekend and am so excited about it. Robyn and I went out last night and had a blast!! BrideWars is an amazing movie and I can't wait to buy it when it comes out!!! I always have soooo much fun with Robyn but this time I truly realized how blessed I am to have her as a friend, we are so much alike but just never realized it. I am making it a goal to not let the 45-60 min drive stop me from getting close to her again. Mike and I look forward to doing more things with her and craig.
We went to a pep band invitational today for Evan and it was really fun. It is cute to see all those kids get so into their music and cheering on their school. We had dinner with Evan and he "has found the perfect girl" haha gotta love 15 year old boys. He has homecoming this friday and is really excited to take this "perfect girl" who we have yet to meet. Tomorrow is a lazy day but a fun day, how can lazy not be fun :) Thursday I get my hair done in Greenwood!! Wow what a weekend and a week to come. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

The grass isn't always greener on the other side...

We have those sayings for a reason. Somewhere at some point in time it was said. Many people say your job isnt who you are or what your life is but really I think your job is who you are. You spend your whole life wanting to grow up to be this or that and you go to school to get whatever job you have. I love love love being a nurse. It is one of the most rewarding but draining jobs. I feel proud to say I am a nurse, numerous times I find myself telling stories of the things I do (without violating HIPPA hahaha). Recently I have switched jobs because our house in princeton didnt sell and we had it in our heads that we liked Princeton better or was it that, it just so happened some bad things happened in Btown that we thought we did like princeton better. I never moved because I didnt like Bloomington Hospital, yes, in it's entirety I didnt like all of it but in all honesty the best place I have ever worked with some of the best people ever. I cried the day I left. I think about it everyday.
My new job well lets just say I don't really enjoy it. Coming home and crying to Mike every night about how bad it is, that's just not healthy. Thinking that I don't really want to be a nurse anymore. I wonder what lesson I am needing to learn from this. I just want to go to work and be happy. I think I know exactly what that means...
