Yep, again I have been MIA. Its a good thing I "blog without limits" or I would be in trouble!
So here are some quick updates to what I have been up to while I was MIA.
I got a new job!!!!!! I took a job offer as an LVN at the correctional facility in Soledad. I am totally nervous as this is my first LVN position since I got my license last October. I will be starting there on 11/30. Most of the time getting a state job takes a long time but due to budget restrictions, I have to start by 11/30 because they can no longer hire as of 12/1. We are cutting it a little close aren't we?
This will be a 1.5 hour drive each way for me so it looks like we are going to be moving soon. Mike and I decided not to rush the moving because I don't want to be stressed out about it right before Christmas. Our goal is to move by mid January. We have started packing up some things and cleaning so its not all bunched into the last few weeks we are here.

My oldest daughter turned 13, OMG I HAVE A TEENAGER SOMEBODY HELP ME!!!!! Ok so it's not that bad but still, lol. We took her to the Ducks Stanford game the day after and we lost boo but we still had fun! For her party I am "gulp" taking her and her friends to see New Moon on Saturday. Yep, that's right. Me, my friend Tia and 8 giggly, screaming, crazy 13 year old girls going to see New Moon. I know, what was I thinking?!?!?!?

I did my first craft show. Didn't turn out so hot. But lessons learned, I will never ever sign up for another craft show that is not juried because I can't compete with B & S sellers (that would be buy and sell, stuff that is not handmade)
I still need to work on my PIF piece for Jewels, I have the pattern made, just need to pick up beads to start it. Maybe I will do that in the morning. I was going to stop at a bead store today on my way to my CPR class after my dr appt but it took longer than I thought so I didn't get to stop.

My hospice family took me to dinner last night at TGIF's to celebrate my new job. I have been so lucky to have worked with such a great group of people in Hospice and I love them all very much! And since I work in 2 departments, I have to go through the tears and goodbyes one more time but at least I will have some great pics of all of us!
I have been trying to organize my finished jewelry and get it listed in my ETSY shop. Wow that is a lot of work!
Just read on Lisa's blog that One World One Heart is coming soon! Can't wait for that. I have some cute pieces made that didn't sell and maybe one other thing in the works that I will be giving away on my blog so watch for that to come.
So that is what I have been doing for the last month. Wow, I think I need a nap just reading that!
