Ahhhhhhh finalllyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

How do you spell relief??? Well I spell it F-L-O-R-I-D-A. Yes and that's exactly where I am. Spending my time relaxin!!! Our flight left on time Saturday afternoon and my luggage arrived full of my stuff so we are ahead of the game. Now lets just hope it all makes it home with me too!
When Chris and I sat down in our seats our TVs were not working (which is the MAIN reason I fly Jet Blue) so I pulled a "Cookie" as Chris says. (not everyone with understand that ha ha) I complained and there resolution was to move us , yes SPLIT us up which I was not happy about because I like to sit with my husband. Although it ended up turning out wonderful because the whole back row opened up and Chris and I had the whole row to ourselves. I even got to lay down on his lap and snooze a little bit. It was a wonderful flight!
We spent our time here yesterday settling in...unpacking, food shopping etc etc. I even went to bed early and did not, for once, have to wake up to an alarm! Although I woke up early anyways!
Today's weather was sooooooooo hot. It was about 87 and very sunny! I spent from 11 to 3 in the sun. And that's taking it slow because I am here for two weeks.
Chris is out golfing while the rest of us showered and are watching TV. I am currently trying to get rid of a freakin headache! But a headache in Florida is better than feeling good at work!!! ha ha
We are probably going to go to Downtown Disney tomorrow night. Tonight we will be playing some cards and making drinks! After all this vacation is all about R&R!!!!
I have only been here for one day and I miss my Matt!!! :((

That's it for now......I will be writing again soon!!

Completely freaked out............

Today I got some shocking if the news itself is not disturbing enough the events leading up to me finding out just simply freaks the hell out of me!!

Ok so this story is gonna give you the goosebumps........One of my per diem jobs was working at a adolescent pysch unit. I got close with this one girl who was a patient. Even though in the medical field it is not ethical to get close to your patients, although personally unless you are not human your gonna get attached to a certain few. Well we will call her JANE for privacy reasons. She was bulimic/cutter/suicidal. She was d/c'ed and doing "better" She kept in contact with me via myspace or email. She updated me on how she is doing about twice a month. Well this past Saturday "for some odd reason" out of the blue I thought of her and said I haven't heard from her I should email her, which I never did because I just simply never got around to it. Today when I was sitting at my desk again out of the blue I thought of her so I went to her myspace and realized on SATURDAY SEP 6...THE SAME DAY I THOUGHT OF HER FOR NO REASON.....she committed suicide!!!!!!!!!! Her wake was tonight, HORRIBLE! I am like freaked out by this!!!!!!!!!! Now her myspace is full of RIP comments!! How crazy is that story?!?!?! Makes ya think about putting things off.....there was a reason I thought of her out of the blue. Would she have gotten my email before she did this??? Who knows but I should have written to her when I thought of it.

A clear example of never knowing what tomorrow will bring so don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today!!

I did it..........

Yup I made it through a 65 hour work week!! It was not easy and I was mucho tired but I did it! And here we are on Saturday night and I have one more day before I start it all over again....I have not gotten my complete schedule from Easter Seals but I know I am working there after WDC on Monday. So off to WDC from 6:30-4:45 and then off to the nursing home for a couple hours! Woo-Hoo racking in them hours! Nice paycheck coming my way before Florida! SWEET!!
Hopefully I can walk by than.....Yes I injured myself tonight. Well you have all heard your parents say "Its all fun and games until someone gets hurt?" Well that's how it went tonight. We were all at my brothers house tonight and Matt and I were play fighting. Well when you play fight with someone who is 6 feet 3 tall its not going to end well for ya! My feet came out from underneath me and I landed hard on my tail bone and my arm on my brothers hard floor. So I came right home because I was in alot of pain and kind of worried about my back. My arm is all bruised and my tailbone is not good!!! It hurts pretty bad. I applied ice and took two pain killers and I am pretty nervous that tomorrow morning will be worse! Keep ya fingers crossed!
Today was a good day up until that point.......about 30 of us went tailgating at the Holy Cross/Umass game. My niece Brianna's boyfriend Emil plays for Umass and we were his cheering section. Luckily the rain held out for us and they game was a great one. And Umass won by a field goal!
My hubby came home from the Cape on Friday which made my weekend!!! I hate when he goes on these trips for work. But its such a great opportunity how can he pass it up??? Staying and eating on the Cape for a week for free?? Plus he gets shit load of comp time! I miss him like crazy when he goes!!
I got some pretty shitty news this week also.....a great example how fast life can turn. A friend of mine from work had a head injury and ended up with a inner cranial bleed. Difficulty walking, talking and she has a long road of recovery ahead of her. So keep her in your thoughts. I know she has been in mine ever since I heard about it! GET BETTER SOON MORGAN!!!!!!
Well as I write this we are getting the remnants of hurricane Hannah and the wind is insane and the rain is coming down sideways. I spoke with my friend Maggie who know lives in Alabama and she had her evacuation bag packed but did not have to go. Her house is fine with exception but her family in Louisiana had some issues. Nothing major thank God!
Well I am going to take my injured back (once again) to bed and get some well needed rest!!!

NO idea......

OK so every time I write in this journal people send me emails commenting on it. Let me tell you I have no idea how that happens?? I have no idea who even reads this blog? I have no idea if I pressed a button that emails this to people? So if you get a notification every time I write in this send me an email and let me know who is reading my blog. Personally I don't mind but I am just curious. Plus I wanna make sure I never talk about ya! ha ha I'm kidding!!!! I think........

Well another week FLYING by......I had a 4 day weekend from WDC but not from Easter Seals. I worked 7 hours on Friday and 8 hours on Sunday. This week I am working at Easter Seals Wed, Thurs and 8 hours on Friday, which is my day off from WDC. But the money is well needed for my upcoming trip to Florida for two weeks. All in all this week I am working 65 hours! YIKES! Hey like everyone tells me do it while your young! My husband is at the Cape this week with the clients so on top of that schedule I actually need to think about supper for Matt and me. UGH!! My parents bailed me out last night THANK GOD and my parents ha ha!!

You would think for my lunch break today I would relax but NOOOOOOOO I started exercising again (with hopes my back does not fight this idea) Yesterday I walked a couple miles and today for the one hour off I have in the 12 hour work day I chose to do laps in the pool at work for 45 minutes. Oh boy did that feel good! We'll see how it feels tomorrow!

So I have to tell you all for the first time in years and years and years I went to the St Anthony feast in the North End and oh boy was it FREAKIN AWESOME!!!! Brenda and Linda invited me and we went Friday night. Great time, great food with great friends!! Can't beat that!

I am missing my husband so much which is another reason I want the week to end. It sucks when he does these trips. And no not because I dont have him to much as I enjoy his cooking its just having him here that is so much more important!!!!

Matt and I had a movie night tonight...which is always nice....we wathced What Happens in Vegas with Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher. It was pretty good, definetly a chick flick!! Thanks Matt!!!

I have made a promise to myself to be in bed by 10 pm, some of you may think that's not early but compared to when I used to go to bed it is!! Here it is 10:14 and I'm already in bed. When I finish this blog its lights they go!
