1 more month

Picture courtesy of :> My fav.

Today is the 25th, and that means that in exactly one month from now, Christmas will have descended upon us!

I'm pretty excited for Christmas, of course, but even more so a little trip occuring the day after. The fam and I will drive down to Washington state to catch up with some rellies (NZ speak... I better translate that. Relatives.) that I havn't seen in way too long. In fact, it has been over a year since we were together in August. What ees thees??

Excited to see a new baby cousin too.

As for today, tomorrow, the day after and the day after that, I will attempt to do homework, productive errands of all sorts, and have a bit of fun and relaxation... all in equal parts before a new work week starts. Man, I'm getting sick of paying to work.

I'm doing my LPN preceptorship at the Royal Jubilee Hospital on the 7th floor AKA complex wounds and general surgery. It's fun, believe it or not! If you stay there, we will take good care of you:)

Do ducks have jackets?

I am so glad I stumbled upon this website. I needed a bit of a laugh to distract me from the really boring paper I have to write!

In fact the laughing fits it evoked were so violent that I dropped my dish of roasted veggies onto the oven door and into the drawer beneath all while burning my arm... 10 minutes after I had already left the computer.

I don't have an IPhone and maybe that is a good thing:) This sort of thing still happens-- withOUT autocorrect!


Happy Remembrance Day! I noticed today that while both my grandfathers were involved in WW2, I've lost my chance to ask them about it. Sad. For future Remembrance Days, I hope I (and everyone) don't forget what to remember.
