Today I volunteered at the community hospital, it's been a year since they moved into their new digs. I had a BALL! Yes, it was fast-paced, and yes I am so tired that it hurts to think, but it was a very rewarding day.

Next week I start volunteering at a county health office. It is free to people of that community that lack insurance. The patients can receive their medications and office visits totally free. They also have a dentist that comes in for cleanings and extractions. Considering the financial status many people are in today, this is a great service for the community.

The last few years I have wanted to find places to volunteer my services, and I think the good feeling I get from assisting others is just what I need at this time in my life. If you have volunteered please share your experiences I would love to hear your opinions.

Garage Sales

I am writing this as I relax on my couch...My sis (the oldest) and I had a garage sale yesterday and was a town wide sale...probably less than 1000 people in my little kicked our arse....garage sales are WORK!!! Started each day around 7 a.m. and didn't end till about 5 p.m., so a total of approximately 10 hours EACH day...raked in a total of $28.00 the first day....even less the second....everyone wants you to give them your stuff....and guess what? I did give it away the second day....from now on, I am GOING to the sales NOT having them!!Ha

I am loving this weather we're having nice and warm with nary a cloud in the sky...ah Summertime, where have you been?

ATT and a break

Today I am cleaning out my closet for a garage sale tomorrow....I like going to them not having them, but when stuff is pouring out of your's time!

I have been out of school for almost exactly 2 weeks now. Monday I paid the fees to be able to sit for my NCLEX-PN exam. I got the Authorization To Test today....I'm panicking again today. I have been studying, but it doesn't seem like I learned enough in school. Talked to a friend...she feels the same way...what the heck?

So what is going on in your world today? I hope you're having a great summer even though we really haven't had the weather for it.
