It's so nice to be back to a routine and schedule...(at least for the mean time!) I feel more like myself when things are planned out. This last month, I have had no set schedule and really have had no to-do list! Don't get me wrong, I loved sleeping in, staying in my pajamas all day, watching reality tv, only changing out of my clothes to go running and changing right back into my pajamas, not showering and trying to explain to Fiance why I need to be a stay at home wife. I definitely needed the rest and mental break after 3 years of nursing school. But was so ready to go back to my old self! 

And back to routines I went...I started the morning off with a 7 mile run on the treadmill. Since it was raining this morning, I knew if I wanted to get my run in, I would have to do in on the treadmill. I absolutely despise running on the treadmill, so the fact that I went 7 miles even blew me away. I provided myself with praise at the end of the run, just like any other normal person would have done! Doesn't everyone tell themselves how awesome they are and how much butt they kicked after a great workout...or is that just me?!?!

 I absolutely loved started the morning off with a sweat session, nothing like sweat in your eyes and looking like you've just been run over by a truck to make for the perfect day ;) Then it was off to review session.......

First day of my review class for boards went very well, minus the fact that I fought with my alarm clock this morning and insisted that 5:30am was way to early to wake up and that I would just miss review class, forget about passing boards and work at golden spoon for the rest of my life! Fiance wasn't to keen on that idea, and pushed me out of bed! His loss!!! 

I secretly liked being back in a classroom, the smell of a new book being opened, my highligthers, post-its, ahh learning! I would totally be a professional student if I could. I have already decided that since Fiance has his masters, I am definitely going back for mine! And then who knows I see some PhD's in our future ;) 

The rest of my day was spent in front of a computer taking "practice test," after about 300 questions, going mentally crazy and losing all feeling in my butt and legs,  I decided it was time for a break a yoga break was what I took and it was just what I needed!!! It felt so good to sweat out all my anxiety from the practice test. This test is going to be awful...I need lot's of prayers ;) 

This post is pretty much random! Nothing exciting happened at you can tell....but I wanted to post and give you all something to read :) 

Question of the day:
Do you like school?!?!


  1. I love school. Would go back everyday and learn all new subjects, languages, and other cool things if i could

  2. Good job on your run today!! 7 miles! WOWEE! I can't even come close to that...yet.

    I HAVE to like to school... I'm a high school teacher after all. Seriously, I like being in a school setting. I love (sometimes) when we have trainings and I get to be the student... you're right, something about organizing notes and highlighting things is AWESOME!

  3. I love school... but I'm a teacher, so I'm the other side of things! I love structure and thrive on routine, so that may be why!

  4. Good for you girl! I HATE the treadmill. Unfortunately that where I'm gonna be for the next few months. Blah. I am one of those who does not like school! I don't mind going to class and learning... but the homework, projects, papers, tests, etc... no thanks!!!

  5. Oh my gosh how do you turn on the treadmill! I always feel like I am going to fall off and it just feels awful! I always praise myself after a good workout too!

    I use to try to get Husband to let me be a stay at home wife... it didn't work out too well for me.

    Oh and I feel the same way. I love school and I'm so excited to go back next week! I'm going to buy my book this week! EEK!

    I'll be praying for you that you do well in your studying and exam!
