So. Sore. Can't. Move.

That was the first thing out of my mouth this morning. 
Last night I spent THREE whole hours doing Just Dance with my 2 bffs. 
 One is preggo and she totally kicked my butt. The other is a former she kicked my butt too. I got 3rd place everytime.

But OH MY WORD. I haven't been this sore since my prom workouts in high school.  P90X didn't hurt this bad.  Maybe it's because I lack coordination and any dance skills.  Add laughing hysterically to the mix and that my why it hurts to breath right now. 

Oh...and I fell on my butt. 

However! I think this might just be the answer to my weight-loss prayers. I danced my little heart away for 3 hours and didn't even realize it! 

One hour a day for the next several weeks and I might just be a skinny minny.  Or be on my unit at the hospital. Haaaa

Yes. We were filmed. 

I'll have to think about posting them.

Have y'all "Just Dance" -ed?

Busy Me.

Holy Cow. Almost 2 months goes by and I've only blogged a couple times.

I will fill you in. 

1. Happy Birthday Blog!  It's been a good year!

2. Work is GREAT. I mean it. It's so much better than my old job.  My co-workers are AWESOME. My preceptors are AWESOME. I really feel like a real nurse.  I AM A REAL NURSE (RN...hahaaa).  Yes...there are bad days. Yes..there are still pain-in-the-ass patients, but the good days and the patients who are sincerely appreciative make up for it.   I go off of orientation at the end of March. I'm up to 4 patients now ( 4 patients...HA... sounds retarded when I ONLY had 22 patients at my old job ).

3. I blogged about Christmas and my life in December. See here.

4.  My close friend found out that she is pregnant! Can't wait for August to meet him/her!

5. Weight loss. Haa.   I've been trying to eat healthier. TRYING. I've been packing my lunch more. Working out. HAHA. I'd rather sleeeeep! I did get a Wii Fit. It's fun. I guess that counts. I think I've been losing weight. Several people in the past 2 weeks have said that I look skinnier! Really ?! Thanks! I'll take it!

6. I've also been sick since January 14. Lets see. It started off as an upper respiratory infection and a sinus infection.  One doctors appointment and some Amoxicillin and 36 hours later and I feel worse than ever.  I go to the Urgent Care clinic and see Doctor #2 and he tells me that almost 2 full days of antibiotics hasn't touched what I have. He said that I had pharyngitis and both of my ear drums were inverted. (Inverted Ear drum-an imbalance in pressure between the middle ear and the outer ear caused by blocked (with mucus/throat funk) eustachian tubes--which can cause pain). Joy.  I missed work for the first time.  The next day at work was pure hell. I've never sneezed so much in my life. I'm tempted to call it projectile snotting . My sleeve needed to be autoclaved. Haha. Any who....2 days later and I felt better! I've still got the digusting crud cough but I feel dandy!!

7. Opie weighs 80 POUNDS. Holy Moly.

Ok. That's all I have for now. I'm exhausted. I worked a 14hour day yesterday and a 13 hour day today.  $$Money$$Money$$Money$$!

Girls Trip!!

Last night, my best friend and I booked a trip to NYC in April with our moms!  So excited!!!  This will be my first trip to the Big Apple!

Our gorgeous 'boutique' hotel is right next to Times Square in the heart of Midtown Manhattan.  It is located in the theater district and is just blocks from Central Park, and Rockefeller Center!

We are leaving on a Wednesday morning at like 6am and are flying back to SC on Saturday evening. So we will have 3.5 days to experience the city!

Now it's time to penny-pinch like I've never penny-pinched before!!!
