I Keep My Jealousy Close Cause It's All Mine

Day Three - Wednesday March 21st, 2012

Today I woke up at 4 am, showered, got ready for work then had to wake up the Hailey! My dad usually takes her to daycare for me when I work day shift but today he had to take my Grandma and her dogs to the vet. I drove Hails over to my Aunt Debbie's house so she could take her to daycare around 9. Hailey Lynn is not happy when woken up before the sun is shining!

I rode to work with my Mom today - she's an RN in the Cardiac Cath Lab and an ICU nurse. I work on the Telemetry (heart monitor) floor so we usually end up working together a lot. It saves gas if we ride together when we can.

Once again I had full intention of taking pictures of my work place but we were so busy again today. Tomorrow is the last day I work before the weekend so hopefully I can get some pics!

After we left work we stopped at the State Store for alcohol, lol. My mom golfs with her sisters on Wednesday evenings in the summer time and they usually drink when they do it. She got a bottle of Captain Morgan's and I got a little bottle of Strawberry Arbor Mist :)

Then we picked up Hailey and went home.

Mom went golfing and Hailey and I headed in to Meadville to get her some short sleeved shirts. With 3 girl cousins just about a year older than her she gets 98% of her clothes through hand-me-downs. But, the weather is so warm and we don't have any short sleeves!!!! So we had to go fix that quickly!

We had to go to Wal*Mart to start with... I also had to pick her up some new underthings, socks, and a jacket.

We got a couple things for her best friend, Kaitlyn's, birthday party which is this Saturday at a bowling alley. My mom is going to have to take her because I work :(

I also picked up a couple summer dresses for cheap and some hair dye to start the warm weather!

I have a rule with my hair, lol - in the Spring/Summer I'm a red head! In the Fall/Winter I'm a brown or mahogany. So it's time to break out the red!!!

After Wal*Mart we tried K*Mart for t-shirts and had a few successes.

Then we went to Apple-bee's with a friend of mine that works at the daycare.

After dinner we stopped at the Shoe Department and I got the BEST RUNNING/EXERCISE SHOES EVER!!!

these are my new Skeletoes!
After we got my sweet shoes we came home and had a little treat :) Which happens to be my #marchphotoaday pic for the day!


Then Hailey went to bed and I started this

and currently look like this 


Tomorrow I'll post a pic of it all dry and pretty!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Until next time,

Megan

Turn Off the Lights and Turn Off the Shyness

Day Two - Tuesday March 20th, 2012

Good evening everyone! I was so happy to read what everyone was doing with their lives yesterday :)
I was surprised that my friend Melissa, who lives in Montana, had snow yesterday while I was enjoying the sunshine! Crazy country we live in.

Anyway... Like I said yesterday - in a comment, I think - I am way more productive when I wake up early. So, today when I got up at 8:30 it caused me to be SUPER LAZY today lol

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, Hailey has preschool 9-12:30 at her daycare. If I don't work I still take her in for school time. Today was my day off so she should have been there by 9 - It was like 9:10 when we arrived. I'm telling you - lazy.

Okay, so after I dropped her off I came home to shower and get a few bills ready for the mail. I had to have my car to this car dealership / automotive garage, Lake View Ford - which is where I bought it - to have the oil changed and a noise investigated by 10:00. Now, you're supposed to have the oil changed every 3,000 miles - I was at almost 5,000 since my last one. NOT GOOD! They looked at everything they could and said nothing was wrong and they couldn't hear anything. If I hear it again I'm supposed to drive over there immediately and let them hear it. Lucky for me it's literally 60 seconds from my house.

Because I was a few minutes late and they took their time investigating the "noise" - lol - I was waiting there for about an hour. The dealership sits right across from the lake that is in the center of my town, Conneaut Lake, so I decided to go for a little walk. I took a picture of the lake but somehow I just deleted it trying to get it from my iPhone to the laptop. Grrrrrrrrr. So, here is a picture I found on GoogleImages and edited it in Microsoft Paint!


Okay so after that I came home and crocheted a few more things for Etsy and watched Supernatural on Netflix. I've never seen this show before but my cousins told me that I would love it so I've started it from the beginning. I have 6 seasons to watch, yey!

I also got caught up on a few of my favorite YouTube channels. This guy is NicePeter. He makes great videos and some funny Epic Rap Battles of History, WHICH YOU SHOULD WATCH!

Sorry for my reflection and terrible light fixture in the pic :(


At 12:20 I left to go get Hailey. Her daycare/preschool - which I used to work at until I got my job at the hospital - is in the basement of our church. Yes, I'm sure you can tell, but I'm Catholic.


I was greeted by this little lady as soon as I walked in.


We came home and I made myself some lunch. Baby greens with grapes, apples, walnuts, and feta with raspberry vinaigrette.



Then - to add to my lazy day - took a nap. Now, when I nap, I nap hard. I slept from 2-6 today. DAY WASTED. Grrrrrr again.

When I woke up we had dinner, fish and tater tots and I made vanilla pudding with bananas and vanilla wafers. So yummy.

I watched Raising Hope with my mom and then gave Hails a tubby and put her to bed.

After that I crocheted and watched more Supernatural then decided to do this real quick lol

Also, through Allie's blog I've subscribed to this other blog - she*sCRAFTY - who started doing this photoaday thing from fat mum slim's blog.

I know March is almost over, but I started doing the photoaday today - it was "before/after".


I edited this picture on my phone with this totally awesome app - PicFrame. I love it!

I wanted to share this with you guys -- Last night after I posted I ended up downloading a bunch of new music on iTunes. Here's what I bought :

"Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" by The Andrews Sisters
"It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)" by Duke Ellington
"Mr. Sandman" by The Chordettes
"In the Mood" by Glen Miller
"I Got Rhythm ("Girl Crazy" Original Cast)" by Judy Garland
"Sisters (White Christmas)" by Rosemary Clooney, Irving Berlin & Betty Clooney
"Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree" by The Andrews Sisters

I was in an old fashioned mood I guess!

Well, I work day shift the next two days - Wish me luck!

Until next time,

Megan

We Live on Front Portches and Swing Life Away

Hello!!!! Time for A Week in the Life again!

I'm excited :) Ready? Set?? GO!!!

Day One - Monday March 19th, 2012

the hospital i work at
Started off this fine morning by waking up at 4:30 am to get ready for work. Shower, getting dressed, hair done... Leave the house at 6 to be there by 6:30. On my way there I listened to "Wake Up" by Arcade Fire and "Swing Life Away" by Rise Against. They wake me up and make me smile.
my drive to work
me driving home
When I got to work I had the intention of taking pictures of where I work and all that... However, we were getting an admission to my nursing unit as soon as I arrived and the day never slowed down! When I work day shift it's 6:30-3:00. I made it out on time, even with the busy day - which is like a miracle!!!

On my drive home it was so nice out (in the high 60s / low 70s - in MARCH) I got to roll down the windows and just relax.

I stopped by the post office to check my mail and ran into a guy I graduated high school with - way back in 2007 lol - who is a police officer now. We ended up talking for 45 minutes and I was late to pick Hailey up from the daycare... Whoops!

When we got home I changed out of my uniform and decided to take Hailey to the park for a little bit. We were there for a little over an hour then came home to decide what to have for dinner.

We have this really great and popular hot dog place called "Eddy's" that opened last week. Quick, no-clean up dinner? Yes, please!

After that it was like 8:00 and I felt like working on some crochet things for my Etsy store. Right now I'm working on different colored hair bows for little - and big - girls.

I have a lot of days off next week and I plan on photographing all the stuff I've made recently and uploading it to my Etsy store. I want to display these bows on the super adorable bird cage I found at Michael's in Erie a few weeks ago.

birdcage - a light blue color - love it!
Now, I'm going to listen to some music, crochet a little more, and enjoy a little sweet treat for my great day :)

my treat!
Until next time,

Megan

ps- I've been using Instagram for a lot of my pictures, but not all of them... I love the way they look though!
