It’s fixed…I’m broken.

It’s fixed…

Okay, my awesome  husband Daniel has fixed the weird thing at the right ——->

It now informs the readers that I am the author of this blog, although if you are reading this you must know that already. I sent out an email to some of my friends and family inviting them to visit this site along with Daniel’s. I hope we don’t disappoint you all too much and that you can appreciate our sense of humor.

I’m broken…

Okay, that is really melodramatic even for me, lol, but I fill a little broken today. I worked my first ever overnight job last night. I worked as a nurse’s assistant from 11pm to 7am at an assisted living facility. I have to tell you that I have the utmost respect for my friend Amy, who is a RN that works nights, and many/any of the other people that work the night shift. I LIKE to sleep! It feels weird going into people’s rooms while they are sleeping…to make sure that they are sleeping. I have never done this type of work before in my life and don’t see my future expanding any further then this. I am a chef and I usually don’t see this side of my customers. In fact I am glad that I don’t. I get the willies thinking about the cross-contamination that could happen. GROSS! Every person that lives there seems to be a dear, but I would rather be in the kitchen making fresh bread or decorating cakes. For right now, though, this is what I will be doing. I am praying that God will be with me every step and that I can rely on  him to get me through this stage in my life. He has a reason for this even if I am not aware of it. Plus, have I mentioned, I LIKE to sleep? Ta ta for now.
