Can't Stand the Waitin'!

It is test day. Those that know me well know that the only way I get through this day is by thinking of "Plan B". "Plan B" came about while I was coming up with my worst case scenarios. Last year it was..."Worst case scenario is that I fail. If I fail I can always pack up and move myself back to Oregon and get a job as a CNA and start over there. At least I will be with Family... right?" This semester proves a bit more challenging since I am half way through the program. Starting over is NOT and option. Plus I am contracted in at HCGH until the end of jan 09. Soooooo now I have "Plan B":

Giving meds is fun, I like giving meds....

Does it necessarily have to be in a person? How about animals? Aren't I making people happy by making their animals happy?

Or there is the easy fallback of having a little beauty shop. Talk of the town. Being the central location of all that's going on.

And there is still my ultimate dream of running an Inn or B&B.

I know, I know, I still want to pass my tests and continue on to be "Nurse Krista- defender of the immunosupressed and damaged bodies everywhere. Coming soon to a town near you." But having my "Plan B" always brings a smile to my face and a little less stress to my life while I'm a waitin' for my scores.

12 Months To A Better Me!

I have been thinking about this for a while now.

January "I will not drink carbonated beverages."
February "I will exercise 5-7 days a week."

At the end of December I gave up Soda/carbonated beverages. I have felt so much better since I have tried to master my addiction. I thought to myself.. hmmmm.... what else can I give up or add to my life to make me feel better. To make me a better person. This month (February) I am going to add in exercise. I will be diligent in exercising 5-7 days a week. I am planning on adding or subtracting something from my life each month, thus the title: 12 Months to a Better Me!

One of My Faves........

I discoverd this great combination a few weeks ago:

Old fashioned Rolled Oats cooked for about five minutes so they are nice and soft with a little texture.
Coconut Milk

It is a treat when I get to eat it since it actually requires more than grabbing and going. I decided this morning would be that day that I could partake. Silly me for thinking that.... I know, it looks really good, and I thought that when I added the milk, ect. that it would cover the burned oatmeal taste. (A result from me thinking that I could do more than one thing at a time.) Oh well.... There is always another day...Goodbye Oatmeal.
