stress. have fun. stress more. try to have fun again. repeat.

This past week was really fun. Bethany and I drove up to Lake Erie on Wednesday and went swimming. The weather was perfect for swimming, freaking hot hot burning sand hot! The water was kind of yucky and full of seaweed grossness but other than that it was great. We got lunch at Sheetz and drinks and donuts at Tim Horton's.

My weekend was also fun because Erin, Eric, Ben and my Dad came to visit. We all went to the Science center on Friday and walked around checking things out. Later we went out to dinner and saw fireworks at Mt. Washington. We also went to the Children's museum on Saturday and had dinner at the Church Brew Works. We rode the Duquense Incline. It was so much fun.

Today its back to applying to jobs and making myself study for the NBCOT exam. I can't wait to be done with that thing!

Just in time

I studied with the girls today. The dreaded neuro chapter :(  I am going to have to dig up my neuro notes from the closet because the book doesn't really help all that much. Philip came home early from work so we went grocery shopping together before I headed over to Deb's house to study the afternoon away. Only a few more weeks of studying to go.

I have my first OT interview tomorrow and I'm nervous! I don't want to go at all. I just need a job and $$$.

I'm off to bed so I can get up  bright and early tomorrow.

Am I going to pass the NBCOT exam?

I have been so grumpy/crappy lately and I want it to stoooop. I am a mood swing mess. I've been studying the neuro chapter in my stupid OT review guide and it is making me feel incredibly stupid.

I still want to get my hair highlighted, so pretty.

the list

I am loving being on a mini vacation from school/work. Philip and I are planning to go to the drive-in tonight. I haven't been to one in years. I spent most of today gathering up things to get rid of before we make any transitions. I packed up a bunch of clothes and some books. I know that I'll need to go through my fabric again and probably need to get rid of more craft stuff. I need to go through the storage locker and get rid of stuff down there too. I don't know how we manage to gather so much crap. We've only been in Pittsburgh for 2 years but we've accumulated a lot.

I know over the next few weeks I need to study for my NBCOT exam and find a freaking job but I also want to have a good time this year. I am the queen of making lists and I thought a summer to do list might help me to fit more fun stuff into my summer.

1. Kayak on the river with Bethany
2. Go to the drive in with Philip
3. Take Annie on a hike
4. Join the gym and work out 3 x week at least
5. Clean out all the useless junk from the apartment
6. Visit Camp
7. Go camping with Bethany
8 Sandcastle
9. Make fruit tarts
10. Make Pimm's cup
11. Make peach crumble

I'll keep adding to the list but this is what I have so far. Philip and I took Annie to the dog park this afternoon, that pup still loves to run like a wild beast. I'm going to go finish organizing things in the second bedroom and gathering junk for the goodwill pile.

4th of July

I feel like I should be doing something all the time but I'm not. I got home from my trip to Lewistown yesterday. I came home and hung out with Rachel and Philip. She was dropping off her mom's computer for Philip to work on and try to fix. Philip and I watching Breaking Amish all night and drank beers, I brought home a New Moon sampler pack.

Our holiday has been boring so far. We're not talking about moving, money or jobs for the rest of the weekend. I feel like we need a mental vacation from all that crap. So far today we've watched TV and laid about on the couch. I feel pretty relaxed today but I know we have so many decisions and changes coming up. I can't wait for things to settle but I'm not sure when that will happen.

I want to start an herb garden.
I want to be better at designing websites. (I changed the blog again today) I like it so much more.
I just wish I knew some computer tricks.
I want to start a family.
I really want a backyard.

I have so much.

I have the cutest, sweetest, kindest husband.
I have amazing friends.
I have three cuddly cats and my snuggle pup.

I am so lucky
