Home sweet home

I am in the middle of a whirlwind. 

Last week, I had school and frantically finished a few assignments,
took 2 tests (both of which were fairly unsuccessful and remind me how much i have to learn in the next few weeks),
and headed to West Virginia to watch my brother in law marry my new sister in law,
whom i love.
My RD from college passed away from cancer on Friday.
We arrived home at 11:10pm Sunday night
i did a load of laundry, unpacked, and repacked,
and I headed up to Murrieta at 6am Monday morning
for 3 days for a HESI review (practice for nursing boards).
I stayed up there this week (and was again reminded how much i have left to learn),
thank you Carly for coming to visit me. i love being with you.

oh and one of my profs requested that i plan a party for my cohort
cuz somehow i've been named the party planner.
not that i mind.... but really, now?

Today, I arrived home around 5:30pm.
Emma and Baker smothered me with love. i sure missed them. definitely the longest they've been without me. and me without them.
J met me with a hug, kiss, and huge smile
then left to pick up his fam from the airport
and brought me home dinner.
thanks, hun.

My aunt is in the ICU,
so tomorrow sis and I will go visit her.
and then i will give blood. hopefully successfully. since i'm gonna be a nurse and all, i figure that's a good thing to do :).
And then head to bible study to spend time with the girls and Jesus.
oh, and do laundry and grocery shopping, and some other things like that somewhere in there. 
oh, and homework too.

Friday, I will have coffee with my mom, whom i haven't seen in forever and miss like crazy.
Friday night we will celebrate her birthday with my family.

Saturday, i will prepare for three 12.5 hour night shifts in a row...
saturday 7pm-7:30am ... sunday ... monday.
i've never worked nights, and i've never worked more than one 12 hour shift in a row. so this will be interesting. much prayer requested :).
I will miss the holiday weekend with my hubby, and the 4th of July service at church ... which i LOVE.
I will sleep for a few hours Tuesday,
and Tuesday evening i will go to class.
and somehow, a few large assignments will get completed by monday. and tuesday.

I would like to say I'll get pictures from these things and more up here on the blog.... but reality says I probably won't.
since this entry is barely presentable in it's layout, and i'm leaving it just the way it is.
3.5 weeks... finals... then no more nursing school.
but right now,
it's crunch time.

"With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
Matthew 19:26 

"Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 3:13-14
