My cousin got married!!

My cousin got married a couple of weeks ago!! I had the pleasure of being in her wedding. It was so great to see my family. I haven't seen them since Christmas. I had so much fun that weekend in Tennessee.

The wedding was beautiful and Brianna was gorgeous!! Here are a few pics!!

Brianna and her dad walking down the aisle (which was actually stairs)

Brianna & Josh saying their vows
I will post some more pics later!!

I passed the CPNE!!!

I'm a little late on posting this but, I passed the CPNE I am so happy that is over with now. I can now graduate and take my boards!!! The CPNE was hard but, it was doable.

Now I get to play the waiting game again!!! I need my graduation papers so I can register for the state boards!!!

I forgot to mention...

I think I will be going for my CPNE in May. I finally got in touch with the testing center in Georgia and the school made a mistake in the computer and marked my application incomplete. So, the testing center did not schedule me for the test because of this. They quickly contacted the school and got it straightened out. It looks like I will be testing sometime in May. I should have an exact date in a couple of weeks.

For all who don't know, I am enrolled in Excelsior College's LPN to RN distance learning program. The CPNE is the clinical portion of the program. It is a super hard, 4 day exam at a hospital.

I am nervous and excited!!!

Yikes...2 months and no posts!! I'm a bad blogger!!

I did not realize that it has been over 2 months since I have updated my blog. I knew it has been a while but darn!!

I have been really busy at my new job. I am enjoying it but, there are some days when I am ready to pull my hair out. I guess that comes with being a supervisor!!

We are getting ready to go to the 50th running of the Daytona 500 in February. Our best friends from Jersey, JP & Cheri, are flying down and joining us. We are renting a motor home and driving to Daytona and camping out on the infield for 6 days. George & I are so excited!! I have always wanted to go to the Daytona 500. It will be even better this year because my (and Cheri's) favorite driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr., will be racing for his new team, Hendrick Motorsports.

My cousin Brianna (my maid of honor) is getting married in May. She has asked me to be in her wedding. I am also super excited for that. I love her fiancee, Josh. He is a great guy and I can't wait for him to become part of the family (even if he is a Jeff Gordon fan, LOL). Brie has picked out beautiful bridesmaid dresses and they have been ordered!!

I have also been car shopping. I just got my car about 1 year and half ago, but I am wanting something sportier. I just can't do anything unless I sell my car privately or come up with lots of $$$ to put down because I owe more on my car than it is worth. So, it looks like I am going to be driving the Grand Prix for a while longer. No biggie!!!

It's been a while...

Since my last post. Let's see, what do I have to write about?

I'll start with my new job. I love it. I am so happy. It is sooo nice to work normal hours. I am really enjoying being home on the weekends. I like the people that I work with. I also got my first paycheck. It was only for one week but, it was more than any check I ever got at my last job!! I am super excited about that!!

I have now been married for nine months!! Nine months!!! I can't believe it. Time goes so fast. For all of you who are wondering how I like married life, I love it!!!

My cousin has asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding in May. I am so honored to be in her wedding. We have grown up together. Even though we lived almost 1,000 miles from each other, we are so close. She is the sister I never had. I am also super excited because I have never been in a wedding before (besides my own).

I bought an elliptical. I bought a NordicTrack Audio Strider 600. It has built-in speakers and a plug for my iPod. I love it!! It is tough exercise though. I am up to almost an hour on it. I never realized how hard it is to work out on an elliptical.

It has been over 2 months since my last cigarette. I have no urge to smoke at all. It is such a great feeling!!

I think that is all that has happened in the last couple of weeks. If I think of anything else, I will post again!!

Today is my last day at my job!!

For all of the nesties that are reading this, I am sorry. I know you gals have heard me say this like 100 times already today!!

This will be the last day that I have to work at night. No more 3-11 shifts, mo more weekend shifts, and no more holiday shifts. This is the beginning of a new era, so to speak, for me. As a nurse, I am required to work at least every other weekend and rotating holidays. My new job (that I start on Monday) is Monday-Friday, 9 to 5, and no holidays. I am so excited for this. This will be the first job that I have ever had with these hours!!

Tonight will be my last night at my current job. Everyone knows that I hate this job. I love the residents and some of the girls that I work with. But, the management sucks. The place is being managed so poorly. Everyone is quitting. Four people have put their notice in within the last 2 weeks. Two of these people are directors!! You would think this would raise a red flag to corporate but so far, it hasn't.

I hope, for the sake of the residents and the employees that are still there, that corporate wakes up and realizes what is going on here. I feel so bad for the residents. They are the ones that are suffering in the long run.
