Hello, friends. I have been a bad blog mommy this week (again) and I am sorry. I feel like I have been all over the place for the past week and a half, and I kind of have been. I am starting to feel an incessant angst regarding my current "limbo" stage, and I have been away from home a lot lately and not able to get a ton of studying done (at least, not nearly as much as I wanted to)--or blogging for that matter, and I found out this week that there was a delay in the processing of my application for my nursing license. Uggh! Dealing with these types of things can be ULTRA difficult and disappointing and I really feel like I have no control whatsoever. Deep breaths, deep breaths...
On top of that, a good sweet friend of mine hooked me up with a possible pediatric nursing job- I got the interview and everything and about 5 minutes later, the recruiter called back and basically said there was a mistake and that she was really sorry, but they wouldn't be needing me. :( It's a cruel world! Not really, but that wasn't the highlight of my week. (I do have a job- just not in peds.)
I think my anxiety was compounded by missing my dad and family. :(
The last meal we had with dad. AMAZING Indian.
I did do some fun things this week, though! Some friends and I went to an Orlando City pro soccer game. It was really fun and the weather was unseasonably cool and pleasant! I met a lot of new, fun people and had a good time.

This weekend, I have been babysitting my favorite kiddos. "Playing mommy" again! :) So far, the weekend has been full of movies, Justin Bieber, and swimming. Yesterday as I was waiting in the carpool line, I realized I had no idea what I was doing. I was very honest with the principal and other administrators running the carpool line about my lack of knowledge. Turned out the kids were at extended day anyway. We went to see Kung Fu Panda 2 in 3D today and it was really cute. Thank heavens for whoever writes movie material that adults can appreciate. The premise of Kung Fu Panda is really deep. There are some good lessons in there!

Belle spilled milk and wrote me an apology letter. :)
On the way home from Kung Fu Panda, we were sitting in traffic at light and I looked over and there was a girl bawling her eyes out in her car. I felt so sad for her. I think most girls have done the ole bawl-n-drive and it sucks. Not to mention, it's very unsafe. Anyway, a guy in a red truck pulls up next to her and she rolls down her window goes completely ape. She was screaming at him like there was no tomorrow. Looked like a "you cheated on me!" screamfest to me. Arms were flailing, sunglasses went flying into the passenger seat... a real spectacle. I'm glad none of the kids saw it, actually. It was kind of scary. I sure hope that girl is able to take some deep, cleansing breaths! My week wasn't that bad.
