A work in progress

I am really excited to get this blog started even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will actually read this. For now I will just write for myself.

I had a good day today, but what day isn't good when you don't have to go to work! Don't get me wrong I do love my job as a nurse but I am a homebody at heart. I can't wait until I have kids someday and get to be a stay-at-home mom. I know that that job is actually much harder than what I do but nonetheless, I am looking forward to it.

I went to Ann Taylor Loft today and was so excited for my purchases! I got 2 pairs of capris, a pair of skinny jeans, two tops and a cute necklace for a grand total of $36!! That is crazy, but awesome!

This morning I went to the gym, which is actually one of my favorite things to do. There is something about a good sweat session that just brightens my day. In a few weeks my half-marathon training officially starts and my olympic triathlon training started about a week ago. I'm pretty nervous about this triathlon. I'm okay with the running and the biking but I am dreading the swim. I don't really enjoy swimming so therefore I don't put as much time into training for the swim, which really screws me over on race day. My last triathlon was only a 1/4 mile swim and that was torture to me. I feel like I am physically able to swim 1 mile (the distance of an olympic triathlon) but it's just not something I look forward to. I guess I should stop complaining about it because no matter what I am going to do it.

I am going to continue working on this blog and hopefully make it as great as some of the other blogs that I read. Until next time

And again

So here I go again with probably my 3rd time trying to start this blog. This happens every time, I get all excited to start a blog until it actually becomes time to do it and then I stop becomes who is actually going to read this? This time is different though, I want to do this for me. I want a document of this time my husband and i's life. This is his last year a medical school and in June 2011 we will be moving to who know's where to start his residency (we won't find out where until march during match day). I can't wait to move to a bigger city where I can work at a huge children's hospital and get back to my passion of working with pediatric oncology patients. I am just excited to experience these next few years with my best friend and to watch him accomplish his dreams of becoming a doctor. This is going to be such a fun, exciting, scary time and I am looking forward to every minute of it!
