Feelin' Froggy

Okay so that's a silly post name, but whatever. I am a dork!
This card I made at my SU 10's club meeting last night. After I let go of my demoship for SU, I went back to my old group. I am kinda glad about that, cause I missed my monthly meetings. I didn't get the chance to really hold monthly meeting with school and all. It was a bad time to sign up to be a demo.
I am excited that SU decided to return to only having one catalog per year, with more mini catty's. Anyway back to the card, the frog was made from punches, and wouldn't you know they are ones that I haven't bought yet. The sentiment is from a new sell-bration set, that I won! I love winning free stuff!

Okay well thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

....and you thought I forgot!


Well I didn't forget about my blog, just clearly haven't had the time to post let alone make a card, or even cook for my family. School is crazy busy, mid-terms are finally over and now we are finally into my favorite things in pathophysiology, Cardiac and Respiratory. I think that comes from my paramedic training. I could see my self working in a Cardiac lab after graduation, just a facinating thing...
Okay enough about school I have 4 days off, and even though I have two papers to write and a KNL (don't ask) to do, I am going to try to fit in some fun.
Went to a 10's club meeting tonight, and this card was the one I made for the exchange. Not a bad card for coming up with it about an hour before the party. The Stampin' Up set I used was "Big Bold Birthday" I embossed the green paper with my cuddlebug folder, and added dollar store sparkles. NICE!
Well I made a pile of cards so I will be adding them over the next few days, come back and enjoy, and please leave a comment or two. Thanks!

My New Great Nephew


Here is my new great nephew, Kai.
Isn't he adorable. He was born on January 28th, but it took me awhile to get a picture of him.
I am so happy for my neice and her fiance' Ryan.
I remember those days when I was younger and had to deal with little ones. Now that my kids are all teenagers, its a little different atmosphere in the house. I enjoy the atmosphere don't get me wrong, and it amazes me that I have two of them driving.
Okay, so school has been going well. This last week I took two mid-terms, and I am still waiting on the results. There has been plenty of rumors going around about the class doing not very well, and I am unsure about my actual results. I always feel this way after taking an exam, I hate this feeling. Then I found out about some of the other students finding joy in my maybe missing a question or two. I don't care about most things like that, but this was just so spiteful. I thought I left that kind of two-faced back stabbing gossip back in high school. But it seems no matter where you go, there is always someone in the back ground hoping you fail. Okay enough of that crapolla, I needed to share it with someone. It was eating at me.....
I have one more mid-term to tackle, and this is actually the hardest one of the three. No good way to study for this one. How do you apply nursing concepts to senerios, yikes, I know sounds crazy!! Well this week has been good for me in some ways, my clinicals on friday went very well, got to do some advanced skills, and my training from my paramedic training came in so handy.
I also started at the gym again, I haven't done a lot of training since my gallbladder surgery, but needed to get back to the routine, I have been thinking about doing one of the summer 5K runs, so we will see how that makes out. Okay, I am off to the stamp room, and hopefully with that and hitting the gym my stress over this week will go bye-bye!! Have a great weekend.

Brain Fog

This week is full of mid-terms, ouor Chronic Care has been moved to next tuesday. But today I took my Pathophysiology, and tomorrow is my Pharmacology mid-term. I am in a total brain fog, hence the name of my post. I actually feel pretty good about my test today, I think, maybe, no I feel good. Everyone was walking around freakin' out, and second guessing their answers. I did too!
The picture I took a little while ago, it's from my tree outside. We have been fogged in for the last week. We sit in a little valley at the lake, and it just sits and makes everything look all frosty. I think it's pretty, unless it hits the road and makes everything all slick. I am hoping it goes away, it's kind of clear right now, but we will see how it is in the morning. I am gonna go and spend the night finishing up on my Pharmocology homework, and study for the mid-term tomorrow. I really want to sit at my stamp table, and make cards, but I need to check my Kreative side at the door until the weekend. I hope you are having a great week!
