Blogger Slacker

That's me!

I am never able to keep up with this blogging. How do some of you do it?
I am going to try to be more up-to-date

Here is what I have been up to in the past month!

- Getting my husband on the passport bandwagon...My 31-year-old husband, like most Americans I know, doesn't have a passport!
So I have been collecting forms, filling them out and now we are almost complete. I just have to cut his hair and walk him over to the photo booth by the end of next week. I kid you not!

- Taking exams for Chemistry, Math and English so I can eliminate them from my schedule for the Fall. I am enrolled at City University of NY for their Nursing program at BCC as a transfer student. It is a very exciting and anxiety ridden time. That College Chemistry exam was like reading Japanese. I had no idea what it was about.

- I have been Spring cleaning my apartment and helping a friend (Ana) move into the building next door. Her fiance is in the Netherlands, he is Dutch and he will only be arriving permanently mid-September. Instead of paying for movers, she has decided to hall all her shit on the subway system. It has taken her around 12 trips, but we have finally done it.
This Saturday she is going to hire a U-haul to help her move her bed and dresser and then we are off to IKEA! I can't wait, I have my eye on a cool looking sleeper sofa.

- Setting up my new sewing machine. I still haven't used it. But I will...I have plans, big plans.

- Planning a bridal shower for my friend Ana. She is getting married in September. I have made the invites, they are super cute and now all I have to do is plan the menu, call everyone and come up with a plan for gifts, games and entertainment.

- Gathering all my documents for our Immigrations interview...whew, that in itself is one huge fiasco!

And finally, I am trying hard to get my digital camera up and running so I can post some photographs.

Living right now is my full time job.

In a nutshell, I am going to try to blog more, but first, I have to move our bookshelf into the living room.

Hey, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! It's awesome that you're starting nursing school! I just finished college (nothing as hard as nursing, though), and am trying to get back into the swing of live-in nannying. Harder than I thought, but I'm adjusting. Good luck on your exams! Oh, yeah - have you seen Montchan's blog - By The Way (I link to it)? It's a fun read, and she grew up in South Africa, as it seems maybe you did (?). Just in case you haven't seen it, and you're interested...

Sounds like you have your hands full! Have fun at IKEA, and if you don't start using your sewing machine, I suggest you send it my way! :-)

Just blog when you can - it's your blog and sometimes the busy-ness of life is just more important! To be honest, I have a hard time keeping up with people who blog everyday - it's just too much for me right now, and if I miss a few days, then I can't catch up!
