2 things happened today that were LONG overdue...

1) I finally got my financial aid money! Only 3 weeks late... It was much needed though. I can finally get all my books but not until Monday because the bookstore is gay and closes at 12 on Fridays and closed all weekend.

2) Curtis and I had a date night. It's been almost a month since we went out last. We went to Olive Garden for dinner then to Best Buy to spend our Rewards Card coupon (I got the new Kenny Chesney cd and he got some stupid rap cd). We also went to Wal-Mart to get some things for the apartment.

3) Overall, it has been a great day! I'm not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow though!

Curtis' interview (and other news)

It was a no go. That particular position requires a certification he doesn't have yet. So that is our mission now... getting his first certification. And those damn things are expensive! We were really hoping for some good news... oh well at least now we have a place to start.

In other news: nursing school is on hold... for now. I am still going to school but I am going to get certified as a medical assistant to get some fresh experience in the field. The program is only 3 semesters and the community college where I am already enrolled. There are several reasons revolving around this change of mind:
1) I love the medical field but I am still not 100% sure that nursing is what I want to do for the rest of my life.
2) One of us needs to be making some decent money... yesterday. We are both in school and our hours are being cut like crazy. Our thought was that if one of us can get a decent job then the other can make it through school without completely stressing each other out.
3) I think this field will give me adequate experience to better prepare me for RN school or really determine if that's the route I will go. Instead of wasting 3 more years in school only to decide that nursing isn't where I want to be.
I know this decision may not make sense to some but it makes sense for us and our situation.

Just maybe...

Just maybe this is a sign that things are going somewhere! Curtis has an interview tomorrow with the Houston School District doing IT stuff. It is a 4 week job paying up to $20 an hour. the downer is that it's only 4 weeks but he goes in there, does a good job, kisses a little butt it will turn into a permenant position. At the very least, it will give him some IT experience on his resume and get his foot in the door.
I know it's only an interview but it's the first one he has been able to get in months. I'm trying to keep my head up...
I will update on the interview tomorrow evening! ~*~Keep your fingers crossed!!~*~

I just want to sleep!

But my lack of breathing ability isn't going to let that happen. I woke up around 5am because I couldn't breathe and tossed and turned and dozed in and out until I finally said screw it. I do not feel good at all and really need to study for my A&P test that I have next week. I just have no energy to do anything... the sick, whiny me wants to lay on the couch all day and do NOTHING but I don't think the responsible, anal me will let that happen. If I don't study at least a little bit today, I will kick myself when this weekend comes and I have to work....

Note to this brewing cold: I don't have time for you right now. Please go away... if you must come back try to do it when I don't have 3 upcoming tests... PLEASE!

Feel like poop!

I am getting sick... first time in a year. This time last year, it started exactly the same way it has this time and I ended up with the flu for two fucking weeks! I was miserable.... really hoping it's not that bad this time. I have been a little more proactive this time though so maybe I will get lucky. Curtis has not gotten sick yet but I'm sure he will be before it's all said and done. My poor hubby can't just get a cold... if he gets a cold it will (almost guaranteed) get brochitis too. YAY!

We still don't know when (or if) my sister-in-law is coming down here. First it was Saturday, then Monday and now I haven't heard from her.

Ok now that I'm done whining... I got an A on my Psychology test today! I studied for like 5 days for that stupid test and it paid off! Now if I could just motivate myself to study for A&P....

Hating my school!

I am so tired of getting the runaround on my financial aid! First I was told I would have my $$ right after classes started, then when I went to get my textbooks, they said it would be Feb. 13th. Now, it's Feb. 23rd and still can't get a straight answer. I can't afford to keep paying out of pocket for all this stuff. That is what financial aid is for!
