What a day

So I came home yesterday from work and took a shower to relax a little bit before it was time to go get Chase. James went to the gym after he got off of work and then came home to take a shower. As we were leaving (he was going to meet me at Walmart to wait for Chase's mom and/or boyfriend to drop him off) I noticed that my back passenger tire was FLAT. I'm not talking kind of flat. Flat flat. Like I drove over knives made of glass. Sooo...I had to hop in the car with him to pick up Chase and then we all went to class with him so he could take a final. Chase and I waited in the car and I tried to keep him entertained but he was cranky because he was sleepy.

Now on to today...I went to work this morning and one of the patients was in a bad mood or something because when I tried to stop her from taking a clipboard from the counter of the dayroom, she snatched it anyway and then hit me in the chest. I stopped her from hitting me anymore, but she ended up hitting another patient with the clipboard before I could get it from her (and she tried to fight me some more). Then one of the patients who hits the call button about every 15 minutes or so (a lot of the patients act like they can't do the stuff that they were doing on their own before they came into the hospital once they get there, like walking or in his case, changing his colostomy bag) told me that he would need a nurse at home to help him once he went home and asked if I was interested. I told him I wasn't a nurse, but he didn't seem to mind that but I still graciously declined.

You really have to remember where you work when you work on my floor. One minute a patient will be nice and trying to give you hugs, and the next they will be mean and nasty, try to hit you and/or call you the n word or other nasty names. I just try to remember that they're sick and sometimes I have to plaster a smile on my face (especially when I have to keep going into a patients room because no one has come to help them with something that I can't do after I've ASKED people to do it more than once) and take the abuse.

Since my tire was flat, I had to drive James' car to work this morning. Also it's been raining ALL day and it's really a mess outside. At least I didn't get soaking wet walking to the car today. Once I got home, I changed into my workout gear and we made our way to James' mom's house to drop off Chase and then we got something to eat before going to the gym. We did legs today and it was quite the workout. I think I did pretty well though. Maybe not as well as I could have done but I still gave it a good shot. After a quick shower and change of clothes, James and I went to the Quizno's by his school and now I'm in the computer lab typing this while he gets ready for his last final. I hope he does well, and that he enjoys his week off of school next week. He needs some time off.

In other news, I haven't posted any ads for craigspimp lately, but I'm still getting hits from ads I posted a few days ago. I'm going to try to write up some new scripts over the weekend so that I can just copy and paste them when I post instead of having to think of new stuff each and every time (the scripts will each be different though, just the same ideas worded different ways for each city). I have a lot of "topics" I guess you could call them and when I get done I should have about 300 scripts to post in all 10 of my cities. I'm going to try to pimp pretty hard this weekend though... James has a birthday coming up and I want to get him something good.

Ok that's enough for now. More when I get to it. Bye!

How did that happen?

So this weekend, after James and I bought groceries, he said he wanted to stop by the Rivera Fitness center near out house, that was in the same shopping center as the Walmart Neighborhood Market that we shop at. He SAID he wanted to get some brochures. The next thing I know, both of us were taking pictures for our ID badges. So yeah, now I belong to a gym lol. We went yesterday and I worked on a chest and back. I'm not that sore today, but I'm not sure if that's because I'm getting stronger, or if I just didn't work out with enough weight (probably not enough weight). On the bright side, James got to work out with heavier weights, which is what he wanted. Plus he looks really hot when he's working out lol.

Craigspimp has changed their system. Now how much you get paid depends on how many guys sign up for the free site from your ads. Needless to say, my stats have me dropped down from 8 cents to 2 cents a reply. I'm trying to get them back up, but if it doesn't happen soon, I'm going to have to let the pimping go. Too bad too, it was really good money while it lasted.

Work was the same as usual. We were supposed to have 3 discharges today so if we don't get any new admits, we'll only have 13 patients (I doubt that we won't get anyone new). I'm looking forward to the weekend though. I always enjoy the break. Oh yeah, we also got memberships to sam's club this weekend. We looked around but didn't buy anything this time. I'll probably blow $100 in there the first time I really go shopping on just the juice that we usually buy. Maybe we won't run out as often.

I think that's about it. I'm going to get something to eat. Bye!

Wow I haven't done a lot in my life...that sucks lol


Well it's the weekend finally. I was really glad I didn't have to get up this morning to go out into the cold, but unfortunatly James had to. He has to work all day today (literally from open until close tonight) so me and Chase are hanging out today.

I haven't been pimping as much as I should have this week. The money hasn't been as good, which makes me not want to post as much, which means that I won't make much (vicious cycle!) James signed up last week but his account got deleted along with some other people. It's been happening a lot, but I try to cash out every day so that if I do ever get deleted that I won't be losing that much. When the money is good, it's really good (around $100 a day) which makes it hard to want to quit lol. Especially when I can make more sitting on my butt in pajamas than I did on my feet for 5 1/2 hours at work.

James surprised me with some Tirimisu that I asked for, flowers, and a new pillow (which I had been complaining about) yesterday. Very sweet. Then he proceeded to shoot me with silly string lol. I really wasn't expecting that. He also bought himself a iron gym (the pull up thing that goes over the door frame) so now he's doing that in addition to his other workouts. I'm still a little sore in my left arm from the bicep workout I did Wednesday. I didn't do any leg work outs yesterday like I was supposed to.

I'm hungry, but I'm feeling really lazy so I want to order something instead of cooking lol. That's pretty sad. Oh well, let me go and get me and Chase something to snack on. Bye for now!

Before I forget, here are my flowers. They look blue on here for some reason, but they're really purple. Maybe it was the flash lol.

Valentine's Day Wrap Up

Well Valentine's day has come and gone. I meant to post a message yesterday, but I didn't get around to it. James and I spent a quiet day at home yesterday and cooked dinner. James made BBQ bacon stuffed chicken breasts and I made scalloped potatoes and heated up some macaroni that we had left.

Today we went to Al's and ate and then came home and took a nap. After that we went to the grocery store and came home and watched a movie. It was an english dubbed Thai movie called "Chocolate". It's was a little sad but it was a good action movie.

I wish I didn't have to go to work tomorrow. Ugh. Oh well, I guess the sooner I start the week, the sooner it will be over. Another day, another dollar I guess. On the bright side, it hasn't been that cold lately. I still wear a coat in the morning since it's a little chilly. By the time I get off though, it's hot outside.

While I'm thinking of it, here are those pictures I promised. Here's the roses I got for Valentine's day:

Very pretty as usual

And here's a picture of my very sexy and extremely sweet boyfriend James with his lip piercing:
Isn't he cute when he smiles?

And since I like to show off, here's his latest progress pic from his BodySpace page:
Look at those muscles!

Speaking of muscles, my thighs have been killing me since my workout with James Friday. I decided to do legs Friday, so I would have a little rest before having to work on Monday. I hope I'm not as sore.

Well I guess that's about it for now. More when I get to it!

Thank God it's Friday!

I'm really glad it's the weekend. I need a break for a few days. Work was crazy today. We have 20 patients now (the most we can have on that floor) and one in particular kept trying to get out of bed even though she was on bed rest. I kept having to get her to lay down (and for some reason she would start crying) and setting her bed alarm so it would go off if she got up. I could hardly do rounds because by the time I got down the hall to check on the other patients, her bed alarm was going off. Then one time she tried to take a swing at me.

I hid James some stuff for valentine's day (I decided to give it to him early). I got him a work out shirt, some cupcakes (from publix), a big sketch book (that wasn't really meant to be part of the gift, but I decided to give it to him anyway since I bought it yesterday) and two cards (I couldn't decide which one I liked better).

James got me some really pretty roses, and some candy. I'll post a pic of the flowers after I take a picture and remember to upload it. I'll try to post a pic of his lip piercing too if I remember. We're going to cook together tomorrow for our Valentine's meal. I don't want to go anywhere near any restaurants this weekend because I know it will be packed!

Speaking of restaurants, after we worked out today (I did legs and a little abs. My thigh muscle is spasming a little when I walk) we went to the mall and got some Haagen Daas ice cream (good but too expensive) and then went to Quiznos. Oh yeah, I bought a new purse at the mall. It was more expensive than what I wanted to pay for it, but I needed a new one BADLY. The straps on my old one looked like a dog had been chewing on it.

So after all of that I went to class with James and we're in the computer lab and I'm typing this. Oh yeah, craigspimp hasn't been making me a lot of money this week because all of my ads keep getting flagged in all of my cities. I guess I'll hold off on posting a lot until I see what kind of new changes they're supposed to have rolling out this week. I miss last week when I was making $100 a day. Oh well, at least we got the rent paid up through March. :) I guess that's about it for now.

The End. (lol)

P. S. Happy Valentine's Day!

Catching up

A lot has happened since my last post. I got my tattoo, James got his lip pierced, we got the shoes we ordered (today) and I got paid again. I've been working a lot on Craigspimp, and some days I make around $100. I've been using most of it to pay off some of my credit card debt. I've paid $300 on it this week alone. If I get the whole thing paid off, I think I'll quit doing it. It's a lot of work. I'm up to 10 cities now.

As for the tattoo, here's the picture:

It's on my right hip by the way, and you can't really see it, but there's some purple in there. James' lip piercing looks awesome. I don't know if he wants me posting his pics up here though, but I think he might have some on his BodySpace page.

Valentine's day is coming up next week. James and I are supposed to be cooking. We probably won't be doing too much. I don't think he has to worry about getting me anything because he gets me flowers and candy for no reason all year (He bought me a heart shaped box of Reeses peanut butter cups. I haven't opened it yet because Chase will try to eat them all and then I'll be mad lol.

These are the flowers he got me last week. Very pretty!

He always pics the best flowers. Well, Chase just woke up from a nap and I'm hungry so I'm going to go heat us up some lasagna. Bye!
