A few things that I've been pondering lately....

....How is it so humid here and it doesn't rain? It's dark and cloudy every morning, I get excited for rain, and then around 1300 the sun breaks up the clouds and penetrates your soul.

....What if this new royal son grows up, and doesn't want to be king? Does he still have to reign as king because he was "born into royalty"? Just pondering...(and uneducated on their royal processes)

....I want to bake a jaw-dropping, amazing birthday cake for my husband next weekend. But I don't have a kitchen. I do have a crockpot, and I have access to the hotel's "shared kitchen". Any suggestions? So far my option in 1st place is making Tiramisu.

....On that note, why do I have such a hard time buying a birthday present for someone who I know better than anyone else in the world? It should be so easy! I think the shared bank accounts plays a role in this challenge.

....I'm starting to feel inadequate, as MOST of my graduating class from college are going back for their NP (Nurse Practitioner) this fall. I don't feel ready for that, and still feel like I'm in the "learning and growing" phase of my career.

....I've always assumed I'd go on to NP school, but lately, I'm not so sure that's what interests me. Why is it so hard for me to decide what I want to be when I grow up?!

....I wonder where I'll be living in November. I know my husband's next school is near LA, but we have absolutely no idea when. It's really hard to plan and apply for jobs. "Well sir, I'm not sure when I'm available for a start date. But I'll know 3 weeks in advance!?"

....I wonder if this whole experience will make me better at "going with the flow".

....Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! If there's one thing I love about my new job, it's having my weekends off! It does so much for my general satisfaction of life.

....I cannot believe July is almost over. (my friends in the Midwest will curse me for saying this, but I'm so excited for summer to be over with. I want to wear jeans.
