The reason for little girls

Today we had our first ever tea party. Little tykes friends (2 from school) and one we've known for like 4+ yrs came.

It was a TON of fun! We thought about this because when we went north to go have Christmas with my family, my mom's best friend's daughter gave us HER daughter's tea set.... and it's impressive! It's care bear (not that you really notice it in the cups but the saucers have little bears on them - which the girls thought were really cute so it's all good!) and think deep shade of pink which it's ultra feminine but very pretty none the less. Then because I wanted to meet the mommy's I decided to make it a mommy and daughter tea. Of the 5 invites I sent to school two said that they could come. Then of course I invited my pal and her daughter. So because of this I went out and bought a tea set that the adults could use. It was a really simple design, though elegant. IMO the day was a great success. Now if only I could get better at time management for things such as this! I totally needed just another 30 min (I suppose I shouldn't have "snoozed" my alarm twice!)

Little tyke had a TON of fun and so did I. I hope we can strike up some outside school friendships. the mom's seem pretty cool so we'll see.

This MUST be a joke

My journey through school to get my BSN finally has seriously been a roller coaster.... several ups and a BUNCH of downs.... with many twists and turns.

But I've always hung on, thinking that God has a plan and that with him, all things are possible....

I'm living in a house that I have grown to hate, with people I seriously detest (and I KNOW feel the same way), in a situation that makes me depressed if I think too much about...

I work in an area that I'm undervalued and underappreciated. Where I do the SAME duties as a BSN nurse but get paid at LEAST $5 (minimum!) an hour less. But I think, well this gives me knowledge and skills I need to have as a BSN nurse so it's all good....

Well I've been on this road for 5+ yrs now... and I STILL don't have my BSN.... I'm STILL experiencing roadblocks and difficulties and ignorance/intolerance....

It's hard not to feel deflated to hear "no" YET again. To be told that they won't can't help me.

It seems that when I find an open door it gets slammed in my face.

I talked to the contract person today and told him that we had to change avenues AGAIN.... he gaffaed at the incredulity of the situation.... that he had NEVER experienced the difficulty in ANY student previously before as I have had (should I be surprised, no.... but I was).

Anyone know anyone in Michigan that would want to help a student out with placement???? Let me know! I certainly need it!
