eating : nothing...but looking forward to my PB&J and soy yogurt for lunch.

feeling : tired. 45 minutes on the wii fit wears me out.

listening : to obama talk on all 10 channels that i receive.

watching : the computer screen.

reading: a horrible nursing research book. last day of it though- the final exam is tomorrow.

loving : my pets and psodl.

disliking: that i'm too lazy to get up and run at 6am.

thinking : i hate money. north korea is like a much larger version of the columbine shooters. i should not have eaten that damn good ice cream last night.

hoping : my grandparents are doing okay. psodl and i work things out. i lose weight with the wii fit.

wishing : to win the lottery...like always.

I haven't been updating this thing much recently b/c, to be honest, I don't do much these days. Alister works Monday thru Friday and I spend the day at home cleaning, reading, doing schoolwork, using the Wii Fit, and playing on the internet. Sounds thrilling right? No, not really. But I keep telling myself that the hell of nursing school will start again sooner than I'd like and the chance to do any of the above will quickly disappear. I do hope to get some more mini-vacations in this summer but other than that nothing major is planned.

I did start seeing a therapist at ECU for some things and I really enjoy talking to her. I've always been a fan of therapists; it's a completely neutral person who will sit there and listen to you bitch and moan until you feel better. Who can complain about that? She also referred me to the school's psychiatrist and yes, once again, I am on happy pills (ie Prozac). They boosted me up once many years ago-maybe that will happen again. It's been rough recently.

This weekend looks promising. Tomorrow Alister and some friends of mine are getting together to make sushi (cross fingers against food poisoning). Saturday we're heading to Raleigh to spend time with our respective families for Father's Day and will return to thrilling, super-humid G-Vegas on Sunday. Hopefully it's an enjoyable, safe weekend for everyone and their dads.

eating : nada.

feeling : lazy as always.

listening : to LOST season 1 on DVD

watching : LOST season 1...currently Sayid and Locke talking about Boone dying.

reading: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

loving : the thought that the end of summer school is only a few weeks away

disliking: the price of digital cable. Suddenlink is a rip off.

thinking : i need to get this assignment done so i can go to the beach Sunday.

hoping : my Grandma is doing okay.

wishing : to win the lottery...like always.

The Weekend

I went home to Raleigh for the weekend and had an enjoyable time with family. My Grandma Tripp's memorial service was Saturday morning followed by a surprise party for my cousin Vern. It was a nice service and an enjoyable party so no complaints! There was a lot of good food served and a lot of visiting that hadn't been done in a while. Sunday started off with Eggs Benedict and Mimosa's followed by more visiting. It was nice to see all of the family despite the circumstances!

After everyone left (except for Edwin) Sunday afternoon I finished up my horrible paper on stem cell research and nursing (no connection...seriously) and sent some time visiting. Edwin's very frustrating to watch movies with although it was nice to finally visit with him (b/c I always loved spending time with him growing up).

Today Mom, Alex, and I drove to Winston Salem to visit Grandma, Grandpa, Pat, and Joyce. It was a nice visit but I wish Grandma were doing better. We had an a yummy lunch at Red Lobster and my parmesan crusted Tilapia was excellent. I returned to Greenville this evening and am back to hardcore schoolwork through June 24. Hopefully that goes quickly!
