Turbo-Charged Day!


I started the day with my free sample of Dunkin’ Turbo this morning. 2 cups and I was wide awake!! Also… my writing today at work may have looked a little like this, and I hope everyone was able to read it! I felt somewhat like a physician with illegible handwriting, haha.


A little too much for me – the rest of the sample pack is going in the compost, to turbo charge our garden!

But the day has been pretty successful –

  • saw bunches of patients
  • prepared an inservice/training session for tomorrow (reminding the staff about how many carbs our diebetic patients should be getting at mealtimes and that you cannot serve corn, stuffing and fettucine alfredo as one balanced meal!)
  • hit the gym after work
  • continued to hunt for a place to stay in Atlanta over memorial day
  • picked up discounted Biltmore tickets for this weekend, courtesy of AAA

Oh, and Bess got a new look today with a brand new pink collar, and this cute floral bandanna that her collar slips through (preventing her from pulling it off … or from the other dogs pulling it off her!). Adorable, right?

DSCN0420 I think she’s saying there “Come on.. I know you want to adopt me!”

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! We’re having a little south of the border dinner tonight with homemade quesadillas and leftover vegetable soup. yum yum. And some embroidery to go along with it! My current project involves stitching on paper rather than fabric, and has been a fun challenge :)


The countdown is upon me

A beautiful hibiscus from the backyard. Reminding me that I’ll be leaving Texas in less than a week now.  Wow how time flies! Seems like just yesterday when I was coming home from graduation, making lists of all the things I wanted to get done this summer. I certainly haven’t done them all (you never do), but I’ve had a good summer. I won’t waste time mentioning the things I didn’t accomplish, I’ll just keep them on the list for another time!

It’s a really nice Saturday here. I went to a garage sale this morning, almost died from the sun and humidity. But really, it is a nice day; I’m just a wimp. I’ve also spent a good bit of time this morning working on my latest art project: Paint by Numbers! haha! I don’t think I’ve done this for at least 10 years. It was my sister’s idea, so we made a late night stop to Michael’s and picked up our masterpiece kits, came home and painted while listening to Jay Leno. It’s been surprisingly fun and relaxing, hopefully something I can finish in this next week. Maybe my sister will use it as dorm room decor; she’s been all into making plans for the dorm room lately, trying to find the perfect set of posters and coordinating colors and all that fun stuff. That seems like forever ago I was in a dorm!
