Blabbing to Stay Awake

Here to blab. It is late at the hospital and I am trying to stay awake. That is all this is going to be about. Me blabbing about things that are on my mind tonight.  


I am really upset by the people at Swap-bot. I have been having trouble there, and admin seems too busy to help out. I can’t get my address fixed and for the last few days I can’t access my messages. UGH!!! Not to mention, some of those people that swap there take it way too seriously. Way too seriously! Like how come they cannot contact you personally before going overboard about something. I personally know 3 other people who swap there. All of us send our things out on time, but people completely overreact if the mail takes more than a day. I am sorry, but I am not paying for overnight mail. Especially if it is international. But people get there britches all up in a bunch there. That is all I am going to say. Like if you don’t receive something, send me a message. I am more than happy to make it right. If I have to, I will send another package. But I guess that is too much to ask of some people. I am just upset. I guess that is it.


Maybe the fact that I am working this horrid schedule this week isn’t helping much either. Did I tell you, I am on a “On Week” at work. That pretty much means I live, eat, and breathe the hospital. I am an intern, so I get the weird schedules. Especially when holidays are thrown into the mix. I don’t really mind. I mean I have no hubby or kiddos, so it ain’t as bad as it could be. By the way, the holidays always bring way more interesting cases.


Thursday, I am traveling. I am doing some “Group Talks” with Dr. D and a group of patients suffering from eating disorders. I have done it in the past. And I really like it. It gives me a chance to use my counseling skills and nutrition background. I seem to especially get along with this group.


But I cannot wait until Monday when life somewhat turns back to normal. I want to craft something. I finished my lent sacrifice up a little early. The big one anyway. Which was good. Mostly because tomorrow we have an Easter Egg Hunt for all of the pediatric units. I made 252 amigurumi animals for the kiddos. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to give them away.


Other than that, I am living off of red hospital jell-O. That and a never ending supply of AMP. But the 2 don’t mix well. The Guys called with some pressing issue. I think they booked 3 gigs. But for some reason, they seem to be scared to tell me. UGH! I wonder what that is all about. J forgot the combination to his safe, and was hoping I knew it. Why? I don’t know. I think in 4 years, I have seen him open it once. And to be honest, I wasn’t really paying attention. Oh, and my friends are all banding together to marry me off. Why? I really have no clue. H says it has to do with her wanting to start a family with her new hubby. And for whatever reasons, we need to have kids at the same time. They already have a list going. No one asked me what I am looking for. My Mom thought it was funny…and even had an interesting message in her fortune cookie. So here is my short list if they bother to look…someone taller than me (I had to change light bulbs again), he has to like or at least tolerate NASCAR, PBR, and baseball, has to be somewhat ambitious, likes history, oh, and a little facial hair wouldn’t be the worst thing either.



The Girlies and Me

So, this week is a crazy one! Cari’s birthday was Sunday, Sophia’s was Monday, Lauren’s was yesterday, and Maribel’s is Friday. Almost too many birthdays to deal with…almost. From March 15th-March 27th I know someone who has a birthday every single day…sometimes 2 people. Sarita was so excited to make all kinds of fun things for the girls. So we have been making things. I bought some of those kits to make dolls and such. So she made each girl something for their birthday. Cari and her are a lot alike because they like to make things. But this afternoon, I decided that I would have the girls over for a little while.


That means I need to stock up on goodies. Did I mention I had 4 tests today? Yeah, but I have finished them, and I am ready for some girl time…this afternoon. But I need to go shopping. On my list? The girls favorite candies, craft supplies, and just fun stuff.


 1. Chocolate and caramels for me and Cari…I know we are addicted.

 2. Twizzlers for Sarita

 3. M&Ms for Maribel

 4. Chocolate raisins for Marissa

 5. Gummy worms for Lauren

 6. Starburst for Sophia

 7. Craft Supplies…paper, stickers, ribbon, etc.

 8. Bead/Pearl Necklaces…I need to hit the Thrift Stores

 9. Feathers…boas…they really like them

10. Who knows…I will just head to the Dollar Store for inspiration.


I also decided I would cook for us. I am thinking Pollo Monterey. Spicy and hot just like my itty bitty girlies. And I am thinking cinnamon caramel sundaes. I know…I am already drooling. But sometimes, I just need to spend some time with the little ones. Well I should get going, I got lots to do before I go pick up the girls!

I just LOVE the fabric. And to have such a feminine dress with all those ruffles, it makes me droll. I could have used it the other day when we performed. It would have gone perfectly in our eclectically dressed group…especially with my brown cowboy boots. I hope I win!

Tea Set Pattern Giveaway

Hi Everyone! They are having another giveaway over at The Sassy Apron Swap (http://sassyapronswap.blogspot.com/.) It is for the pattern to this wonderful tea set. Don’t you just love it? It kinda reminds me of the crochet pattern I have. Which by the way, the girls love!


But that is not were the fun ends. If you go to http://umecrafts.etsy.com you will find all sorts of fun patterns. I almost couldn’t pick a favorite. Almost! But my favorite is the Felt Fruit Lot. I just like all the fruit. But seriously, you could not go wrong with any of these patterns.  


Miss Maribel is here with me. And she says her favorite is the cupcakes. I think Miss M wants some of these fun gifts for her birthday next week. She is telling me that her baby needs to eat. Don’t you just love almost 2 year olds? I guess Nana should get to buying a pattern or two so my little sweetheart will have some fun toys!
