Well, it's been quite some time since I wrote last. Work and life have been keeping me busy.
My little girl just turned four recently. We had an awesome party here at the house for her. It went great, there wasn't any family fighting really, all the kids and adults had fun, a lot of people showed up, we had great food.... it was one of the nicest parties I've ever thrown. She started VPK this year, and we also got her started in Ballet. She's very excited about that part!
Work has been.... interesting.... lately. I've just been feeling overwhelmed. I finished my internship and started working on my own at the end of June. I really like the unit I work on, I get along with everyone I work with, etc. I just feel so overwhelmed most days. I'm sure that all just comes with time. I'm still new, I still have a lot of questions, and it doesn't take much some days to put me in the weeds! I just can't wait until I don't feel like I am 10 steps behind all day long. Sigh. I know that there will always be some days like that, but I can't wait until it's not EVERY day.
I don't feel like I've had much free time lately. I've been trying to really keep up on the housework around here, and that takes up time. So far the house has been clean a whole month! LOL. It's been a long time since we've been able to keep up with it this long. We did major cleaning before DD's birthday party, and it just looked so nice and felt so good to have a clean house. During school, the last thing I had time for was cleaning house! I would often not get to sleep for over 24 hours, I couldn't have cared less if my house was clean, LOL.
At any rate, I do still make time to do things I want to do. I got really into doing my nails with the soak off gel polishes and made a little hobby out of that. I love that my clumsy arse can't smudge the polish 10 minutes after I worked so hard to make it look nice, and that it doesn't chip in a day. Of course I can't wear acrylics or anything at work anyway, but the soak off gels are so nice and don't lift or chip or anything. They are THE BEST THING EVER!
On the photography front, not much exciting going on there. I haven't been taking as many pictures lately. It's too hot to go out during the day and get any nature stuff right now. I'm too lazy in the early mornings on my days off anymore to get up and go out before it gets hot - that was easier to do when I worked nights, LOL, I was already up!
Crafty stuff, haven't been doing much lately. Just unmotivated to drag all my sewing stuff out lately. I'm in a mode where i just like to read or play on the computer or something.
Well, nothing else new going on. I just need to keep on keeping on and hope it all settles down eventually. Sooner rather than later, I hope.
