Has it really been two months since I posted on here? Wow, time flies!
I have been busy working on Rain People: A friend’s website for her homemade quilts and baby & toddler bonnets. She has a real passion for quilting. If you ever have a moment to sit down with her, you will be infused with your own passion to get things done simply because of how passionate she is about her bonnets and quilts.
I’ve also picked up a regular 67% time job as an LPN, which is purely evening and night shifts. Figuring out how to balance work life, children, home, and my relationship was incredibly difficult in the beginning. It’s hard feeling like a contributing member of the household when all you feel like doing is “recovering” from your nights! I’m very grateful that I am with my partner. He supports me a great deal.
Our household welcomed two new members: Twilight and Tiger. Our eldests’ new hamsters. Well deserved and earned by my stepson and my daughter.
I quit smoking September 11th; the anniversary of my knee surgery in 2013.
I’m designing a quilt-along for a minecraft twin quilt. I’m hoping to make it in time for a December 1st start and will make it a weekly post.
I’m also reviewing my pathophysiology course as I’m starting the Bachelor’s of Science program in January 2016… While working my .67 line. It will be a gong show, but totally worth it in the end.
I would like to compose a few tips and tricks about maintaining daily life while working nights and evenings without the benefit of sleeping whenever due to having kiddos and other obligations to maintain. (It is rough going to bed at 9 AM on Thursday after a night shift only to wake up at 1 PM to pick kids up, then wake up at 7:30 AM the next day to drop kids off at school… Let me tell ya!)
Be positive. Be grateful. Have good intentions. Take deep breaths. Today is only given to us once. <3
