Wow, I haven't posted in a while... I guess its because I've been enjoying the luxury of sleeping, working out whenever I want, doing some much needed cleaning (which always makes me feel accomplished), and watching tv as much as I want. Yes, the good life... I'm trying to really enjoy it since this is the last Christmas break - so to speak - that I get.
Although I do have countless hours to waste away, I do have school work to do. I only have 7 weeks of class in the spring before I go out on clinical rotations and to make those weeks smoother we have been given some of our assignments early to work on over the break. I have to come up with my own PT business to design, order equipment, pick a name and a mission statement, and run. Well maybe not run since this is all make believe, but its our business class. So I've been trying to come up with names for my clinic which will most likely be a pediatric clinic- gotta love the kids. So any creative names- shoot them my way!
In the mean time, Christmas is coming! I'm excited to see everyone in the family, although of course as we get older everyone's schedule is hard to coordinate, but none-the-less we will see everyone at some point. But, I love the Christmas season... at the gym the other day (Gold's gym- I got a one month membership for while I'm on break) I hear these two women complain about how hustle-and-bustle this season is. Its sad that so many people only focus on how they have to get so and so this gift, mark things off their to do list, make the big Christmas dinner, yadda yadda.... This is a season to celebrate Christ people! Yes, the presents and giving gifts is fun and great and even stressful when it comes to finding gifts for people, but I don't want to forget this season and what if really means. I have so many blessings right now that they can't be forgotten or go without thanks for our creator (yes thats for Thanksgiving too, but Christmas also).
Speaking of toys... I'm a firm believer in buying Christmas gifts throughout the year. It makes the holiday season go so much easier when all I have to do is find the hidden treasures and wrap them up. We did very good this year with having gifts really early and not having to buy anything last minute.... except... one toy for one of our nieces was going to be ordered at Toys-R-Us, but they didnt have it... in fact they didn't have this toy in any store in the world I'm sure. I went to Walmart 5 times, Target, KMart, Toys-R-Us in Midland... looked online, all the stops and I couldn't find it. I really like to get our nieces whatever they want and I was really upset that I couldn't find this one doll, so I had to just get her whatever I could scrounge up at a store. Hopefully she will like something, if not she can totally take it back! So, no more relying on online purchases... they do not always come through!
We are going to midland on Tuesday and staying till Saturday or Sunday (not sure), but I will have a full report when we are done! Happy Holidays everyone and of course, Merry Christmas!
