This time tomorrow I will be on a beach somewhere...

Yes, I might be crazy but at this point I really don't care.

It's mid-semester and my family and I are taking a mini vacation.Things are hectic to say the least. A month ago a friend from nursing school and her 3 kids moved in with me. (yes I said three, so that makes a total of 5 kids under the age of 8 in my house...somebody shoot me). She had some crazy circumstances (no she didn't get a divorce) and had no one to turn to so my husband and I took her in for a year and a half. It's been a little difficult getting used to it all. I'm the type of person who really needs my space and as you can imagine in a house of 8 people, space is limited. On top of that, this semester has been pretty stressful. I'd say I deserve a little vacation in the middle of all this madness.

So the family and I (just mine) are packing up tomorrow morning and heading off to the beach for four days to try to get some relaxation in. Maybe it won't be so bad studying for next week's test with the sand in my toes, the sun shining down on me, and the waves crashing at my feet.

Oh, and I made another A on my F&E test last week (barely). Thanks for all the offers for help! I ended up pulling another all nighter but obviously they work for me as the last two A's have proven. I have a feeling I will have yet another date with 10 cups of coffee and 3 am next week.


  1. Congratulations on the grades, and holy crap.

    You took in your friend and her three kids, that is admirable. Nurses are caregivers, but I would think you need a vacation.

  2. Woop for another A. I have never pulled an all-nighter for school... I really hope I can still say that this time next year.

    Also, you are an angel. That is all I can manage to say right now. Enjoy your well-deserved vacation and family time!

  3. *confetti* for your results!

    I'm tired just thinking about your living situation. That's so nice of you!

  4. Holy Moly lady, I commend you for taking in a friend's family when in need...Can I come live with you next? J/K I don't know how you could ever have a proper atmosphere with another family under your roof and I hope things get easier. I'm thinking this get-away weekend is just what you so deserve. Enjoy!

  5. Nice blog!
    8 kids?! That has madness written all over it. Especially in the middle of a working period. I hope your vacation serves as relaxation for you and you come back feeling more energetic than ever! =] x

  6. Wow - what a big heart you have. Have a wonderful vacation.

  7. Congrats on the A. :-)
    And it sounds like you need a vacation. Have fun!!!

  8. I want to hear about your mini-vacation. How did it go?
