Knitting and Baking... Wait, How Old Am I?

Oh my gosh... I can't move. I am never, ever baking these cookies again. I made enough cookies to completely fill a giant freezer bag and it lasted my family and I barely 24 hours. I hate to admit it, but I probably ate 95% of them. They were so good. Never making them again.

I spent today scrubbing my car until it sparkled inside and out. There was a lot of sap on it, so my arms are quite sore from the elbow grease that was required. Darn white cars. I have a few new job applications to hand out despite my having 17 shifts next month. As much as I enjoy my job, working on a dementia unit is incredibly hard and demanding. I need a balance of normalcy in my work life.

That said, I'm trying to get back into knitting as much as possible. I want to finish the sweater I started and then forgot about in December/January. I'd like to be able to have it finished so that I can start a new one for my daughter for her birthday, which is coming up in June.

Put on shorts/sweat pants and a t-shirt or a tank top. Okay, now put on your shoes. Go for a walk! The weather on the Island is absolutely amazing today. I just got back from a super-short run (15-20 minutes... I have to work in a few minutes here) with my dog... The sun is shining, but the air is crisp yet mild. It is perfect running weather. I wish I had more time to spend outside, but I'm off to work inside a building until 2300 hrs.

I'm really not a fan of evening shifts, but work is work :)  I'd much prefer to have my plate filled up with night shifts. I won't complain too much -- I really appreciate the job and how my boss is giving my nearly full time hours as a casual nurse.

Oh yes, I passed my licensing exam :D  Hurrah!

Running Races on the Island - Help

Help me compile a list of running races on the island! I'm trying to find as many as I can and intend to sign up for a handful of the 15 k and under races with my sister. Once I have a list of races, I'll provide details about registration and so forth.

Let's continue on with the great start to the new year and get our fitness levels up to a point where our hearts thank us for making them stronger ;)
