Best Week Ahead of Me!

Tomorrow I leave to go see my hubby! I will be making the 10 hour drive with a friend! I am so excited, I have butterflies and I want to puke! It is going to be the greatest, I have only went 2 1/2 months without seeing him so I am very lucky that I get to see him for four days before he ships out! I won't see him again until R&R which will be November-ish-Early Spring. Don't know yet!

We are going to be staying at a beach front hotel! I am so excited, it's like our "second" honeymoon. Which we didn't have a really nice honeymoon the first time. We couldn't afford it, and we aren't lucky enough to have "rich" family to pay for it! We were young and just starting life!

Can ya tell I'm excited? Now I got to get in bed! I have a long day ahead of me!

I will post pics after I get back from the trip!:) I am almost to 50 followers so I will be doing a giveaway like I promised! The only problem is the store that I had in mind to buy from got hit by a tornado and they are closed, so now I will have to think of something else to do!

Valves Don't Make Friends

Getting really good at IV starts. Once I start advancing the catheter I seem to hit a valve 50% of the time. The hardest trouble I am having is picking a good vein to go into. This is like an art in itself. Maybe I should work at a HUGE hospital and be on the IV therapy team so I can go around starting IV's all day! I want to be the best I can be when it comes to venipunctures and IV therapy. I will get it, I know it takes A LOT of practice and patients patience!;)

Ahh. You may or may not be wondering where in the heck I have been for the last month!

I have been busy! I took my trip to Washington state to visit my friend Haley. I stayed on McChord AFB for the time. It was awesome. I seen Mt. Raineer, we went to Gig Harbor, and The Point. It was a really nice stay. I wish I could go back already, I miss them. It was also so nice there! It is so hot in OK! I have been dying!

I took the JOB at the AWESOME hospital! I moved back in with family, and let me just say it is not a great idea to do when your already married and out. It would have been better for me to just take the crappier job...plus the job I took pays 2.50 less! I did not know this at the time or I would have picked the other job. I will say that I have had a great experience though! I have worked in ICU, and tomorrow I am working in ACU (Pre-Op). I have always been interested in surgery. I have rotations in OB, Nursery, Surgery, ER, and some more in ICU. I really LOVE LOVE LOVE ICU with a passion. It is hard to work in ICU as a brand new nurse with no experience though so I don't know how easy it will be to get a job fresh out of college. I really don't want to work on the floor though. We will see. I don't graduate for another 11 months! I am more than ready.

I have some even better news! I can't go into details though but I can say that instead of going to Afghanistan my hubby will be spending time in Kuwait and Iraq. I was really happy with this news until I realized that there are at least 6 deaths that I know of that have happened in Iraq in the last few weeks.

Well leave some comments! I just got the internet turned on here at my familys house so I will be on more!  Got to go for now though, I have to wake up at 0430 in order to make it to work on time!
