Happy Monday, all!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I know I did!

It was kicked off Friday night. After a grueling shift of orientation where I came home completely shell-shocked....

Ryan & I headed to the SAHBA (Southern Arizona Home Builder's Association) Home & Garden Show. It was exciting to talk to different companies about our landscaping plans for the house. We also talked to a variety of water-softener companies! Woo Hoo (that was the lesser exciting part)

We then headed into town for some Sushi. If you are ever in Tucson..........

Don't go to Fusion Wasabi :) -- unless you like your waitress/waiters to be complete assholes to you. Just a tip!

Food was EXCELLENT. Seroiusly wonderful, fresh, delicious sushi.

It wasn't that our waitress was slow or unattentive. She was actually rude to us. Mean. Snotty. Disappointing. I could go on and tell the details - but I'll just end with the fact that their service sucks.

But we still had a great night together. It has been a long time since Ryan & I have had a night out - just the 2 of us! So it was glorious!! :)

Saturday morning started off with a 9 mile run. I didn't have to hit the road until about 7:45 am. This is HUGE. Normally it's like 90 by 7:45! So happy for fall! It's still way to hot during the day, but I'll take the cool mornings/nights!

I brewed up some Non-Fat Pumpkin Spice Lattes. (Stay tuned...recipe coming tomorrow) ;)

We met some friends before the game for some tailgating and hit up the U of A game. First loss of the season. Boo.

Then Sunday (yesterday) - I worked my last shift of "orientation". Scary.

This afternoon I work my 1st solo shift as a nurse. I am not sure how working 2-11:30 pm will go. Since my bedtime is usually 10-ish. We shall see ;)

(To be honest..............I'm frightened, sick-to-my-stomach, terrified. I feel like my orientation was jipped. I am scared of what will happen with my 25 patients when the sun starts to set and their confusion sets in (it's called "Sun Downers Syndrome" -google it)

I predict I will find myself on my couch at midnight tonight crying, feeling defeated. But, we'll see!

So, if you would should maybe say a prayer for me today! :)

You can do it - but prayers coming your way! Say a bunch of Hail Mary's on your way to work and whenever you need some "divine" assistance on your shift. Our blessed Mother never fails!

Aw, I just read this! I had no idea you were so worried about your first shift...I have so much confidence in you that I guess I assumed you were feeling super confident, too. I'm so glad to know that your shift went well (everybody lived) and I want you to know you're in my prayers, every day.
