Random Rambling

Today didn't start off well - I woke up with a migraine, and decided to stay home for the day. I ended up doing work for a few hours from here (which will go unappreciated) and as usual there were problems at the office.

I wish I was a person that could put it all behind me and leave it at the office, but I'm just not. I feel so much like everyday is a lesson in humility...and while I am great at making them think that they've won... it eats at me. I can't even relax sometimes when I come home and take a bath or veg in front of the television... because I sit there and stew about it in my mind. I am so ready to quit!! That will be a truly beautiful day!

I signed up for my certification exam today - it will be on February 14th at 6PM. I will end up taking that day and the day after off - I have an appointment with my surgeon on the 15th anyway. My studies for the exam will begin either tonight or tomorrow - as I now need to learn a lot about english, reading, math, social studies, science, health, music, and physical education for kindergarden through 4th grade. It's been a long time! I've got lots to brush up on!

I did get some scrapbooking done today - in hopes that it would take my mind off of my headache... as if the mind over matter stuff works, but I had to try. I ended up getting the beginning of the book completed... so I'm pretty excited about that!

This page is basically a journal entry about all of the hurdles I had to jump over before the surgery.

This page is about the pre-thanksgiving that John set up for me when we found out that my surgery would be the week before the official Thanksgiving.

This page talks about the actual surgery and shows the photo of my insicions from right after I got home. I wish I would have gotten John to take a picture or two of me at the hospital - he had the camera...but it never occured to me.

This photo is just a collection of cards that were given to me in the hospital - mostly from the flower arrangements that were sent to me, but one from a friend at work.

That pretty much sums up my day... we're still waiting to hear how Meghan's surgery went - her sister is supposed to update her blog today. I'm sure that it went great, but it will be good to hear how she's officially doing from her family.


  1. Yeah, I keep checking Meg's blog too.

    So, once you take this exam, then what happens? How far out are you from being able to quit??

    Loved the scrap pages! I really need to dig my stuff out and give it another go, but for now, tomorrow is the nutritionalist and Thursday, hair and nails, so maybe by the weekend!

  2. So sorry you have been feeling down lately. If you ever need to talk it out, Just give me a call.I tend to be a good listener.
    And your scrapbook looks great!! Jenn, Staci and I have been itching to use the Cricket by the way, It came up in conversation several times recently. :D


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
