do the next good thing ( a life update)

 
 
1. i am seriously bummed that there is no snow in our part of wisconsin, yet.
i mean...really.
what is going on here?
i demand a white christmas, okay?
speaking of christmas...
i've decided to embrace the "it's not ALL about the presents" theme this year,
especially,
with my girls.
i am hoping they catch on.
 
2. this has been such a busy week!
you may or may not know,
that i am in school to get my nursing degree.
i met with my advisor a few days ago
and basically found out that i have a good
3-4 years of school ahead of me before i am an RN
(thats WITH summer school, folks...)
its HARD being a mom, working, and taking classes,
so i can only really do 6-9 credits a semester.
i got discouraged and called my mom,
then i called my dad,
then i talked to my husband,
and they all said
"STICK WITH IT!"
so, i am.
 
3. i got an extra job...
30 hrs a week waitressing...
i am sure you are wondering,
why?
to be TOTALLY honest... 
it's not wedding season... = "slower" season...
and there are these things that come in the mail,
in little white envelopes...
called...
BILLS!
so, a moms gotta do what a moms gotta do....
instead of being crabby about it
i am excited about it!
i have always loved waitressing
and the people you get to talk to,
the running around,
the energy of a really fun, busy restuarant, like this one is...
i am a naturally busy, energetic person
and this gives me something good to do with my energy :)
so, will i quit my job in a few months
when wedding season rolls around?
we'll see...
but i kind of doubt it.
 
4. my sister and i are obsessed with a singer
we found on youtube...
lana del rey...
i have been listening to her a ton....
love!
 
5. i want to encourage you out there...
sometimes, life takes us on these twists and turns...
and instead of being scared,
instead of saying
"ummmmm....this wasn't MY plan, God....."
i have found that going with the flow,
giving every day a fresh start,
and having a positive, clear mind...
these things keep me sane in this hectic lifestyle.
do the next good thing.
sometimes i wonder,
what to do about a certain situation...
or in my life...
and i am reminded of a great life principle.
just...
DO THE NEXT GOOD THING.
just plug away,
just keep going,
hard work pays off in the end.
by the way....
 


and pssss.........
dont tell anyone......
currently talking to producers of a well known daytime t.v. show about
appearing an in an upcoming segment about women making money from crafting...
we will see!!
:)
