Happy Easter! So it snowed last night. How bizarre is that? Granted, it wasn't much, and it was all melted by about 9:00 this morning, but still, I had to scrape it off the back window of my car before I could leave for church this morning. I like it.

So a good portion of my Easter Sunday was spent at my home away from home, good ol' Fairway Oaks. Apparently Easter Brunch is a big deal for a lot of people. About 225 of them anyway. It was nuts. But this really sweet man left me a $20 tip, and that made my day. I'm convinced that most of the members there don't even know what a cash tip is. So thank you, Mr. Palmer.

Words of encouragement to my fellow students: there are only 5 weeks left of the semester! Yay! Where did the time go? I need summer. Badly. This will be my last real summer before I graduate and am forced to become part of the real world. Scary thought. Hopefully it will be a good one. I have high hopes.

Sorry for the randomness in the train of thought. I'm a little sleep deprived just now. I think it's time for bed. Goodnight.

I think I'm going to start a petition for a 2 week spring break. Just because I feel like the one we had didn't really happen. I love it when employers are aware of the fact that you don't have school for a week, and so take the liberty of scheduling you to work extra hours during a time of supposed rest and relaxation. That's so thoughtful. Needless to say, my spring break was a little sub-par. I did get to go home for 2 days, which was nice, but the rest of the week was devoted to working. Sad day.

So yesterday was the 6 month point for me and Ryan. I'm pretty excited about that! It kind of amazes me how fast 6 months flew by. But things are going in a really good direction there. So yay for that. I'm pretty nuts about the guy.

Last night these 4 girls came to look at our house. I'm pretty sure they will be the ones living in it next year. It makes me very sad to think of our little home being occupied by complete strangers. What if they change things? What if they paint the walls? So much time and love went into making this house ours, and now we have to leave it. It's all very sad. Ok, sappy moment over. Really though, I am sad about having to move. I really do like our house, but more than that, I just hate the process of moving. But I'm getting excited about moving into an apartment with Michelle. We found some pretty nice ones, or so it seems. We have yet to see the inside of one. But if all things go according to plan, we will be happy tenents of Timber Ridge apartments starting this summer.

So I think the plans for the Honduras mission trip this summer are going to happen. I'm pretty excited about this. Ryan is going as well, and I'm pretty excited about having the opportunity (I never know how to spell that word!) to serve together. I think it will be good for us to see each other in a different setting and whatnot. Good times. And I'm pretty excited about the trip itself. The trip is a medical mission, which is a good learning experience for us as nursing students. From what I understand, we will be responsible for providing much of the patient care, and only if we can't figure something out do we send them on to real nurses or doctors. So that's kind of intimidating, but wow, what an opportunity for learning! And I'm sure we'll see some stuff we would never come across here in the United States. So that's kind of cool. Please be praying for the success of this trip!
