I’m in a bit of a blogging and life funk. I have lots of posts in mind from our vacation and posts to answer your questions from my Q & A, but I really don’t feel like writing them. In fact, I’m kind of pissed off at blogging in general. Don’t hate, I’m just being honest. Bare with me, because I’m totally going to figure out something to write!
Today is my Grandmas 87th birthday! For the past few years my Mom, sister, and I have taken my Grandma shopping for her birthday. We had our shopping expedition yesterday, which usually just involves Kohl’s and maybe a couple stores at the mall. For lunch, my Grandma chose the Olive Garden because she loves the soup, salad, and breadsticks! I did get one picture at lunch, and I think it’s safe to post it because I’m pretty sure my Grandma has no idea what a blog even is.
My sister’s daughter, Alyssa was with us too, but she refused to be in the picture. Oh, and my sister reads this blog, so DO NOT say that she and I look alike. She hates it when people say that, because we honestly don’t look alike, but apparently people think all short haired woman look alike.
Would you believe that my Grandma bought her own birthday lunch? It’s true. When we were leaving Kohl’s to go to lunch she said “Now listen, when we go to lunch, I’m going to buy, and if you don’t let me buy, then I won’t eat!” Um, okay. You can’t really argue with that, can you? She did let my Mom buy dessert though!
Alright, how about a few more questions from my Q & A post?
Christa asked “What kind of nurse are you?”
I work in a privately owned (not affiliated with a hospital) outpatient surgical center. Our center is single specialty, ophthalmology (eyes). We do everything from cataract surgery and cornea transplants to plastic surgery of the eyes and face. It’s actually a very small facility, with only about 15 employees. Being so small, all the nurses are trained in each area of surgery, which is nice because it never gets boring!
Amy asked “What’s the silliest thing you and Shawn ever argued about?”
A Tommy Hilfiger sweatshirt. Seriously. When I worked in the hospital I used to work weekends, and who knows what Shawn was doing while I was at work!? A few days after one weekend that I worked, he was wearing a Tommy Hilfiger sweatshirt. I asked him if it was new because I’d never seen him wear it before. He said, “No.” I didn’t think anything of it, but a few days later I found the tags from the sweatshirt in the garbage. I’m not sure why he lied about it, but I hate being lied to more than anything in the whole wide world, so I was pretty pissed. To this day, he won’t admit that the sweatshirt was new or that he lied about it. Highly Suspicious!
Tyly asked “What is the farthest distance you have ever run? Were you athletic in high school?”
According to my Nike iPod trainer, the farthest distance I have ran is 8 miles. That was last summer when I was training for a 1/2 marathon, but then the boob thing happened and put a hitch in my plans!
The second question is harder, because I guess that depends on your definition of “athletic.” I was a cheerleader in high school, for both football and basketball. Most people don’t think that cheerleading is a sport, but cheering nonstop for 2+ hours at a basketball game is a lot harder than you’d think! My coach the first 2 years was also really hardcore at practice…jumps, plyometrics, and sit-ups galore!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Oh, and one more thing, do you like me answering your questions better in vlog form or writing out the answers? And don’t say vlog just because you like to watch me make an idiot out of myself!
