The random ramblings of a perpetual procrastinator. These are the life & times of a nursing home CNA navigating the ups & downs of living with someone who's living with a disability. A sometimes amusing, sometimes bittersweet look at my journey into real adulthood.

Back to the grind.

This weekend went on forever - which is a good thing!

Saturday was spent cleaning & doing errands.  My sister spent the night at our house.  On Sunday the family came over for a Father's Day picnic.  It was really nice to be with them.  My aunt has been having some health issues, & although we don't have the answers we would like just yet, it was nice to talk about it with the group.

After the party it was time for True Blood!!!!  This week's episode was significantly better than last week, & I'm very exciting to see where this season goes!  I'm such a TV junkie...

Today is my first day working 2nd shift at the nursing home.  Friday was great - but I'm me, so now I have nerves about tonight.  I'm going to be on my own, but I don't know anyone on that shift & I have no idea what the normal routine is.  I'm afraid I'm going to be lost.  I was talking it over with DJ last night, & his suggestion was, "You need to remember it's only your 4th day!" 

I know he's right.  I just wish that was enough to shake this feeling.


  1. Good luck! I'm sure you'll do great :).

    Also? Young Victoria was fantastic and I highly recommend it!

  2. I hope your aunt is ok.

    And new jobs are the worst, aren't they? It's that lack of familiarity and everyone and everything is new. Gaaaa. I hope it all went well for you.
