Get It While It’s FREE!


Gabe’s book is free again but only for a short time.  For two days you can get it for your Kindle (or Kindle app on a phone or computer!) absolutely free!  All you have to do is head on over to Amazon and download it.  Seriously, it’s just that easy.

You already have his book you say?  It’s absolutely awesome and you’d love to share that with the world?  Then leave a review!  All you  have to do is follow that same link to the Amazon page and scroll down to the review section.

You’ve already read the book and left a review, so what else can y0u do??  Well, share it with all your friends of course.  Please feel free to share the link on your blogs and on your Facebook pages.  I’m about 99% sure Gabe would appreciate it as much as I do.  🙂


Passing the Time


Studying.  That’s what I’ve been doing.  All the time, every day.  It feels like it’s never ending but an end is truly in sight.  May 10th will be my last day and I will walk in my graduation ceremony May 17th.  It can’t get here quick enough.  Sometimes it feels like all I do is go to school/clinical, go to my small part-time job, and come home to study.

Gabe and the poor kiddos are awesome to put up with me but I know it’s not easy.  Last night we went to a local bounce house/game place so the kids could run off some energy.  I sat and did medication calculations and studied while Gabe made sure the kids didn’t run in to anyone during all of their joy.  See, I told you he puts up with me.

Today I have a ton of housework to do, things to clean, stuff to organize, and yet I’m sitting here studying for nursing once again.  This week brings the first two tests of the semester and lots of homework to turn in.  The one frustrating thing in all of that (as if there’s only one thing!) is my silly printer is out of yellow ink and because of that I can’t even print in black and white.  The consequence of that is no printing the moment I need to print, which ended up turning in to me having to go to my awesome mother-in-law’s house late Monday evening to print out things I needed for Tuesday.  Yep, really annoying.  I even took a few minutes to write to one of my favorite blogs – The Consumerist – about it and they printed my frustrations!  Check it out HERE.

So that’s how I’m passing my time these days.  Studying and complaining about things that hinder my studying/schoolwork.  If you need me, just look for the woman with her head buried in a book.

Cleaning Out the Cobwebs


Wow, so it’s been a while since I posted.  And I mean really posted, not just a quick blip.  You may be wondering why I disappeared so easily.  I have two words for you – Nursing.  School.  Because WOW.  This second year of nursing school has been kicking my butt!  Obviously nursing school is never going to be easy but man, last semester was rough and of course the final semester, which I’m staring down the barrel of now, is going to be just as challenging.

That’s not to say I don’t miss this space.  It’s just that when it comes to priorities this space ends up taking a back seat.  I have Gabe, the kiddos, church, school, my home, etc, etc.  See, tons of stuff!!  So, even though it’s almost mid-January I’m still going to do a 2012 breakdown, if for no other reason than to remind myself everything we survived in 2012.  So stay tuned!
