Hello everyone.!!!!! Wow. it's been a busy week. I don't know where it went to. it's like it came and went.
First, i want to share my thoughts and prayers to the childern's parents in connnecticut. There are no words to express on how truley, sorry i am for the loss of your children. you guys are in my prayers. It just makes me mad why people would go into a school and shoot inocent children/people. I am not a mother yet one day if i have kids it makes me wonder if i should homeschool them? Going to school should be a safe place for your child. you guys are in my prayers.!
Well, my last day at west view was yesterday. It was a sad night. I have grown to love my paitents,co-workers, in the 5 months that i have worked there. everyone was so nice when i first started from day one it did feel like family when i was working there. which i felt was inportant at the time. So i will miss them. But, I have some of them for facebook,and phone numbers so we can still stay in touch. no more nightly walmart runs with my friend cassie. lol.
I am loving working for home health care. I didn't think i would like home health along time ago but,I love it. the people are very friendly.I am glad i am a member of there team. ! :)
It is going to feel nice just working one job now. It was a little much working 2 jobs in a day. Plus i get off at 1p just about everyday.! I do work tonight from 5:30p-10:30p then tomorrow i work 8a-12p. So not to bad. :) then the rest of the week i work from 8a-1pm. So i love my schedual. :)
Well, since i didn't get to do my friday link-ups i am going to do them for today. since i usually love doing them! so I am sorry this is late but late is better then not doing them. :) So first is " friday 5 questions"
1. If you bake during the holidays, what is your favorite thing to make?
My favorite thing to make is cut out cookies. infact i made some the other day for work and they were great.
