A Bunch of Meh

Dear Ridiculous Manager at Work,
Please don't ever have another pre-shift outside in 95-degree-95%-humidity-weather EVER AGAIN. Next time, I'll give you more than dirty looks. Seriously. WHY???
Love, your seriously disgruntled (and sweaty) employee.

Dear God,
Couldn't you have given us a heads-up about S's grandma? Finding out about the effects of her heart medication by HER DEATH is a kind of shitty way of us finding out. Just saying.
Love, a saddened Dani.

Dear MSON,
Please stop making me do these care map/care plan thingies. I hate them. It is not helpful to bullshit a nursing diagnosis for LAST WEEK'S 9 month-old post AVSD repair patient. Sigh.
Love, a very sleepy nursing student.

Dear In-Laws,
You rock. And your visit rocked. Sorry we are a bit boring - but it was nice to chill with you for a week! Miss you already. =)
Love, your favorite daughter-in-law

Instead of studying...

...I have:
  • Gone to Ikea
  • Gone to Home Depot
  • Caulked the half bath
  • Painted the second blue coat in the half bath
  • Painted the wainscoting
  • Spray painted all my frames and the mirror for the full bath
  • GEEKED OUT when I saw the newest clips from Eclipse and The Deathly Hallows
And I had some carrots and peanut butter. Will any of that be on the test? Didn't think so.

Bathroom Blues

We are trying to renovate BOTH our bathrooms (one fully, one just paint and fixture fixin) before my inlaws get here in A WEEK.

Sigh. You can imagine that I hate my life just a little bit right now. Memorial Day weekend was full of trips to Home Depot...I think that between M and me, we made about 9 trips over three days - NOT EXAGGERATING PEOPLE. So. Instead of being blue about the fact that I can't find a paint color that goes with the ugly beige and brown tile in my full bath, I'll watch this video over and over:

That's right people. I'm going to be POSITIVE. Sigh.
