Stop getting sick! Seriously! I’ve never had more plans canceled and changed because people are getting sick. There are some yucky viruses out there. And while I am used to being around sick people at work, I am not used to it at home as well. So stock up on the vitamin C, the echinacea, the chicken soup, and eucalyptus oil. And get better!!



a wee bit of writer’s block lately December 29, 2007

Sometimes when I blog, all I do is vent. And while writing is great for venting and working things through in your mind, I would like to be able to write about good things as well. That’s why I haven’t been blogging as much. I’ve been wanting to blog about only good things in my life. Well, all that has done is blocked me from writing. So I’m just gonna write. And try to spin things as positive as I can. I’m still gonna vent though. Sometimes you just gotta.

So anyways, I’m stuck in Las Vegas. The weather is too bad this weekend for me to drive back, so I am staying here until January 8th. Hopefully driving conditions will be better for me then. Besides, I’ve been somewhat uninvited to a New Year’s party in Salt Lake. I don’t want to face that, so I’m hanging here for a party with an old friend and for work. I’ll just say this…it hurts when someone you’ve opened you life to, doesn’t approve of you. I don’t want to go into specifics. I’m standing up for myself and walking away from this relationship. Sometimes you just need to give people a little space and time for them to come to their senses. And if that doesn’t work, you smack them in the head or punch them in the throat. Honestly, I cannot pretend to be a victim. This is karma. I was in this situation a couple of years ago. I disapproved of someone who didn’t deserve my negative energy. Luckily things are ok now…well, ok but not as good as it could be. It’s a hard pill to swallow, but I’m getting what I deserve and I know it.  So I’ll learn from this and move on.


Life is interesting December 20, 2007

I’ve been meaning to write about this for awhile. With the way my job situation has been, and spending so much time in Las Vegas these past few months, I was considering moving back to Las Vegas. Especially since it looks like I will be offered a full time position at the hospital I work for. But, I must be honest…this isn’t the only position I’ve been offered. I have two other offers in Las Vegas as well, both very good positions. I wasn’t even applying anywhere, these just fell into my lap. So this has been weighing on me lately. I would be near family, but have no social life. Plus, I am so tired of Las Vegas and the heat…ugh! So I’ve been bummed because it felt like I was quitting, and doomed to a life in Sin City.

So anyways,  I applied to Weber State University. I’ve always wanted to go back to school, so I decided to take a chance even if I end up moving back. So we’ll see how that goes. But heavenly father decided to add more to this. I was contacted by one of my temp companies with a temp job offer in Salt Lake City. It was absolutely perfect for me, and would solve a lot of problems.  I applied last week, and a few days later was told the opportunity was gone. I was devastated. I cried for 2 days straight and then left to go work in Las Vegas for the weekend. I just got back in Salt Lake on Tuesday. Today I got a call about another temp job in Salt Lake city. It’s crazy how this opportunity came up in a round about way. Almost kind of a miracle I even heard about it. So I’ve sent my resume off. I’m really nervous. I don’t want another heart break, but I have to try. I hope I hear soon, because now it is just a waiting game.
