Update on CCRN

Wow, all that prep and I forgot to tell everyone that I passed my CCRN first time, right out of the gate! I was glad I prepared for it the way I did, as this always lowers my test anxiety. All I learned while studying for it will serve me well, but mainly my patients will benefit!

Handy Man

John has almost completed his total kitchen overhaul!! He has done a fantastic job, and it looks amazing! Granite counters, custom stained cabinets, Hickory wood floors and a black walnut bar top right off the family farm in OK!! We have done all the work ourselves, along with help from his parents as well. John, of course, has done the majority of the work, but I helped whenever I could! Can't wait to throw a party!!


My friends, Bruce, Christy and their son Gavin are staying with me right now until their new house is completed. This is the third time Christy and I have lived together and the second time all of us, save Gavin - he's only 2.5 yrs - have lived together. Even in my smallish home, it is going well! It's like revisiting a past time. I know they will be UBER excited for the new house to be completed, but I think we are having fun hanging out with one another. It was mutually beneficial, comfortable and loving! I am having great fun showing Gavin bugs and generally hanging out!

Juice it Baby

I bought a Breville juicer and have started juicing; not exclusively, just in addition to my regular diet. I had put on a few pounds, and after watching, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, decided I would give it a try. That was the easiest 13 pounds I ever lost! I found I am just not craving anything. I eat,I juice, I'm satisfied....I just don't get hungry. And it's TASTY. I highly recommend it!
