I hit 500 posts this week AND I’m THREE away from 400 followers!! Awesome!!


This quarter is going to be a crazy-busy one but we’re also starting to get into the fun stuff. I just wish we didn’t have to read SO MUCH. It’s pretty much all I do because you can’t just skim the information. Ya gotta know it!

But this week we’ve been listening for heartbeats, feeling pulses and TRYING to figure out how to get a blood pressure. It’s a bit complicated, especially if you can’t hear the heartbeat {like mine, it’s nearly impossible to hear!!}. We have also had to start practicing our “skills” and my friend Megan had to brush my teeth. Do you know how awkward it is to have someone that is NOT a dentist, playing around in your mouth? Yeah, I was laughing so hard because of how awkward it was, that I was crying. SO. WEIRD. I’m not looking forward to washing feet or playing with bed pans {shiver}.

Then in Phlebotomy, we got to start playing with needles and we learned how to tie a tourniquet. I love my teacher. She’s funny and has tons of fun stories and lots of “tricks” for getting us to remember the things we’re supposed to know.


The other night, while I was reading chapter after chapter after chapter for my classes, Kyle came home from golfing. He had with him some ice cream and hot fudge. He asked me if a hot fudge sundae would help me to study better and of course I said it would.

After a few minutes, this is what he gave me:

How stinkin cute is THAT?!

We NEVER use these dishes!

Sorry about the lighting and quality. The lighting in the living room sucks when the sun goes down and I was trying to be discreet so he didn’t know I was taking a picture. lol


And I might as well mention it.

See that red area rug in the background of the sundae picture?

I “vacuumed” it, with my fingers, because our vacuum cleaner is pathetic and doesn’t do its job. Kyle is in denial about it being broken and we don’t have money to get a new one right now anyway. But it was COVERED in dog/cat hair and it was bugging me to death…and we had our insurance guy coming over to get a check and a signature so the house had to look presentable.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Therefore, my fingers did the vacuuming and then the tips of my fingers got rug burn…but you can tell that it’s red again. ;0P


Kailani says: In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, Iโ€™ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

My question is:

What are you looking forward to right now?

  3. Your hubby’s definitely a keeper bringing you that sundae while you were studying! In spite of his denial about the vacuum being broken…heh, heh!

    I’m looking forward to the weather drying out so I can get some planting done – which makes me look forward to the flower beds bursting forth with color again! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I am no looking forward to the ice cream that I have waiting for me in my fridge! LOL!

  6. Before our old vacuum cleaner gave up the ghost entirely I used to have to drag the sole of my shoe across my daughter’s bedroom rug to get the pet hair off it. The vacuum had no hope. Getting a new one was so good.

  7. Looking forward the weekend and warmer weather.

  21. In college we used to wrap packing or masking tape around our hands and “pat” the floor to pick up stuff bc we didn’t have a vacuum!
