Blog Challenge #17 - Your highs and lows of this past year

#17:  Your highs and lows of this past year
High:  Obviously the greatest high of this past year was graduating from nursing school and getting a job working in Labor and Delivery. Low:  Realizing how much I don’t know about nursing.  It literally takes years to feel comfortable as a nurse.
High:  Tasha’s husband, Zane, graduated from Southern Utah University and found a great job that he loves Low:  Zane took Tasha to San Diego to live – so far away!
High:  Family vacation to San Diego and Disneyland – it was a PERFECT trip! Low:  NONE!
High:  Travelling this summer:  California, Boise for the Carving Jamboree, Bear Lake for my birthday, back to San Diego to visit Low:  Travelling this summer because I feel like I will never catch up on all the things that need to be done at home
High:  The opening of the Brigham City Temple Low:  I don’t get to go as often as I would like because I am so busy

There are many more and I could go on and on . . . but I won’t!

Unfortunately, the water was over his head.  I looked around to see if any of the teachers in the pool had seen him, but they were all focused on their classes and were turned away from where the boy was.  I soon realized that no one except Shandra and I had seen the boy get into the water.  So I jumped up and ran to the side of the pool, reached in, and pu…

Blog Challenge #15 Write - 15 interesting facts about yourself

Write 15 interesting facts about yourself (OH DANG, I JUST RE-READ THE INSTRUCTIONS - IT SAID "INTERESTING" FACTS.  OH WELL!
  1.I have ‘Word Salad’.  That is a condition where I substitute one word for a totally different word that is usually unrelated (see the sidebar “Audrey’s latest”  for examples)    2.I learned to ride a motorcycle when I was quite young.  Before I had my driver’s license I would push my bike several blocks to the mountains with my friend, Jody, and we would ride all over.  My parents insisted that when I got my license I had to get a motorcycle license too.    3.I graduated from nursing school at 53, and I’m still going to school.    4.I knew that I was going to marry my husband the first time that I met him.    5.I love scrapbooking (although I haven’t done much since I started school).  I have volumes and volumes that are completed.  I love to go back and remember all of the great times I have had in my life.  In addition, I feel it important that we le…
