Brother and wife with my momma.

Now I'm super tired. I need a vacation to recover from my vacation.  *sigh* I'm working tonight.Yay.We need money to fix the cars.
Enjoy some wedding pics why don't ya...
Family is wonderful to be with when you haven't seen them in a looong time isn't it?
I think it might be time for me to move back.

My dad and nephew.

And now I must clean or sleep or something. No mingle due to this week being "I had a wonderful time on vacation and my brain is still on vacation...vacation."
Love you my peeps!

Where oh where has Cluttered Brain gone?

I was asking myself that the other day. For someone who LOVES blogging I sure haven't been around in blogland lately. *sigh*
I vowed I wouldn't let this happen. But work calls. I am in the work mode again. And since I don't have a fancy smart phone that accesses my blog at work, I can't blog like I used to. I hope you will hang in there with me as I try and find the time for some posts. Cuz I don't just wanna go away.
That would make me sad.

I have lots of feelings this day.
And I'm gonna bullet-proof them cuz I'm like that.

  • excitement (I have an awesome job.)
  • tired (Man alive, 12 hours shifts are long.)
I guess that's about it. haha. You are wondering why I even bullet proofed that list? Ya, I don't know. I've entered the world of texting...I'm not that fast, but I am getting there slowly. If I ever text you, wait at least 5 mins for a response. I can't even walk and text at the same time...bwahahaha.

Monday mingle is tomorrow. Perhaps I can fit it in. If I mingle right now. That's probably what I will end up doing. Cuz if I don't do it now, I will not mingle. Cuz, man alive I am busy this next week.....

This NEXT weekend I am flying out to see my folks. YES! So excited. It's just me this time cuz of money issues, but soon we will ALL be able to fly out.

I love ya my peeps and thanks for sticking around!

It's like coming home to family

Me today. At the end of my shift. Almost 10PM at night. I'm too tired to think. But I'm happy. Even though my eyes look like they are so wide eyed. Geez. Good night peeps.

This isn't going to be a long blog post folks. I just worked a 12 hour shift at my new job. Which is super awesome by the way. I could tell that everyone I worked with today wanted to be there, helping the patients get better so that they could return home.
I loved it. I love feeling that way. I don't feel that at my other job. Coral Desert rocks. Seriously.
I have a blister on the back of my heel and my toes hurt...(comfy shoes but my socks were too thick) I got thinner socks never you fear people...

And today was just super great.
I love Rehab. When I grow up I'm gonna be a Rehab nurse. Cuz I want to help others get their independence back after surgery.

Well...Zzzzzzz. I'm tired. I may or may not have time for a mingle this week folks. Stay tuned though. I might have a few blog posts up my sleeve.
Can't promise you anything cuz I am so freakin tired I might not remember in the morning what I wrote.
Peace out and all that jazz.

PS MY cell can text and I am slowly learning the art of texting. It's cool man.

I'm a happy girl!

You want to know why?
One picture says it all.

I have a working laptop again. Well, I have to plug in a USB keyboard cuz the keyboard doesn't work anymore. Also the touchpad is messed up. BUT it can be fixed. And I know a guy that can fix it. So as soon as I win the netbook I am bidding on for parts, my computer doctor will fix my netbook.

But in the meantime I can Skype again. Thank heavens.

Love ya my peeps.

I made it through Orientation at Coral Desert.

Thanks to Google for the Image!

I had my orientation yesterday at my NEW job. Yes, yes I'm excited. I'm glad I had something else to distract my thoughts because after I spilled Dr. Pepper on my netbook on Monday, I've been kinda freaking out. No worries anymore though. It might be able to get fixed. And if it can't, I just need to propose how we are gonna afford another netbook. (Get the money gathered and tell my husband.)
  MY husband is the type that likes to do all this research before he buys a computer. I've been searching online, and believe me I think Wal-mart has the best deal right now. 200 bucks for a netbook. EBAY has somewhat less, but you get less RAM on your hard drive.
   My work schedule for this coming week is Saturday/Sunday at Kolob...THEN on Monday morning bright and EARLY I work a day shift 6AM-6PM. Off Tuesday. Work Wed and Thurs. 12 hour shifts. (But I'm orientating these days, following another CNA around getting the hang of where everything is and what not.)
  The following week I train orient for nights. 6P-6A. Ahh. Dr.Pepper will get me through. And the fact that I will sleep during the day as well.
  Hubby has been working 12-13 hour days construction. This is good because we got expenses here people.:)
  One more thing, this here Cluttered Brain has got Financial Aid (pell grant)to finish up her AAS degree. I need one more class. And guess what it is? It's a computer class. haha. Funny right? I will be taking that and another class, probably online, so I can finish up my associate's.  Then I will dig right in and take ALL my nursing pre requisites classes again. Then I WILL apply to a nursing program. And I WILL get into a nursing program. I WILL be a nurse. Count on that.
  And this my tale is done. Things are looking up. I'm not getting swindled anymore by peeps trying to sell me the wrong kind of dryer. My netbook might be able to be fixed, if not, I will seek a replacement.
  And the best part of it all?
I get to see my family at the end of June. My sweet brother is getting married. I'm EXCITED. (I'm the only one flying out though. Airplane tickets for the WHOLE family would be nice but is just not in the budget right now.)
  SO I will be busier than a one armed paper hanger in the next following weeks. But I will still update ya. don't you worry. Cuz I love blogging and vlogging. It might be a curse. bwahahaha.
Peace out y'all.

I've done a stupid stupid thing.

Okay. I've done something stupid and very dumb. I was watching a movie yesterday on my Acer netbook computer. Netflix. Love it by the way...anyhoo, I was drinking Dr. Pepper in a bottle, which by the way I hardly ever do, and I knocked it over. And guess what? You got it...
It was knocked on my laptop. I didn't think it was very much but it was.

RIP my beloved purple netbook. I called a computer guy in town who happens to be a friend too... and he said I probably fried the motherboard. There is one more thing I could try to see if it could work but he said it probably is a long shot.
  My beloved husband told me if we couldn't get this up and running we probably could get me a new netbook. I saw one on sale for 200 bucks at Wal-mart. Not bad really considering I paid over 300 for it.
  I just need a computer that is compatible with Netflix, Skype, Youtube and Facebook of course....
  So I guess my warning for you all is BE very careful with drinks around your computer. I am probably NEVER ever gonna put my drink anywhere near my computer again. I learned my lesson. I just wish the computer I was typing on had a webcam....(I'm borrowing one for now.)
So that's how my day went.
   Oh and another thing. I had one more thing happen to me yesterday.I need a dryer. An electric dryer to be more precise. So I called on one yesterday. I went out to look at it, lady said it was electric, and I believed her...until I saw the gas connection tubey thingy at the bottom. (I didn't question the gas tubey thingy until I was at home though) But unfortunately for me, I already paid for the dryer. 75 bucks for a dryer that I cannot use. (We have no gas connections.)
  Anyway, tried to call her back yesterday. Nothing. Talked to her sister and her husband. She wasn't home. *sigh* Couldn't get my money back. So I called the pawn shop here in town. Told them I have a really nice gas dryer about a year old, great condition, would they like to buy it from me? They looked at a picture of the dryer I took, and said, "Yes, we'd give you 50 bucks for the dryer." YES! Now I only feel 25 bucks swindled instead of 75.
Now if I can convince my husband I learned my lesson and I will never drink near my computer sgain...maybe by the end of the week I can have a replacement Acer laptop. We'll see.

  In the meantime, hopefully I can borrow this computer from my mother in law until then.
*crossing fingers*
Peace out y'all.

It's time for some confessions.


Ok. It's time for some confessions. And since I am on a confessional type kick today I thought I would share a few with you right now.

  • I love Psych on USA network. Yeah, I'm sure a ton of you watch that already. I am in the middle of watching Season 1 on Netflix. Totally hilarious. I love Shawn and Gus.
  • My kids have a bad case of the lazies since school got out last week. I HAVE to cure that soon.
  • I can't wait until I start my NEW job at Coral Desert. (Even though it starts off NIGHT shift I think I can do it. I don't work every should be alright.) I love 12 hour shifts.
  • I may or may not watch at least 2-4 episodes of Psych a day. (Yes I might be addicted.)
  • Netflix is a Godsend for summer TV for me. I mean what else am I gonna do while I wait for Burn Notice to start up again?
  • Summer has created some lazy for me as well. What do part time peeps do on their day off? (besides laundry and dishes of course.....) watch Psych.
  • I confess since I found out it was National Doughnut Day today I would get some doughnuts for the kiddos. And me. I had one. It was a creme filled one but it was a good sweet fix.
  • I confess I actually rode about 4 miles on a stationary bike the other day and I am here to say I am still living. And boy, did it feel good. I gotta get on that exercise bike more often this summer.
That's enough confessions. I don't want to give all me secrets away now.
Oh one more bonus confession. I can't wait to Skype with my gal pal Angel. She's simply awesome. I just love her.
Peace out y'all. Have a freakin awesome Friday!

Wednesday mingling....

Hey wussup peeps? Are you still hanging around? I've noticed that there's not a ton of blogging going on lately. And then there is me. I guess you could say I'm following the not-blogging trend....I post when I feel like it. And when there is somethin awesome to link up to.

I was gonna do that swimsuit confidence thing but I'm not sure if you can still do that. But you probably can...I'm just not sure if I'm that swimsuit confident. We'll see. That post is coming. I am definitely going swimming this year and y'all know I am confident so maybe I'll show you my swimsuit confidence....:) Keep an eye out for that ok?

I usually buy suits that look good on me... (And that hide my fat.) bwahahaha.

Okay, okay. I'm mingling today with Speedy and a few others.
You wanna join in?
Please do! You can write in a short blog post OR video yourself. Anything.
Just mingle.

Eighty MPH Mom Blog
And remember to visit other minglers too.

Here are the pesty questions I get to answer this week. bwahahaha.
Oh and keep watching my video camera drops halfway during the mingle. *sigh* It still works. I just didn't balance it very well.

1.  What animal or bug are you completely terrified of?
2.  How many cousins do you have?
3.   What state are most of your relatives located in? How often do you see them?

Oh and I forgot one answer. How often do I get to visit my relatives? Not very much since I live out West and they live on the East Coast. I get to visit my family at the end of June though. Woo-hoo! My little brother is getting hitched!

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer days as they fly by. Soon it will be Back to school.....
(But shhh....I won't remind you if you don't remind me.) I like spending time with the kids. As long as there is NO fighting between the siblings....


Happy Wednesday.

Check out Mrs Angel's post today. She linked up with Shell on PYHO. It's a beautiful story. And she's one of my peeps so there....check her out!
