I've been absent

I am going to try and catch you all up on my hectic life, but I'm also going to try not to bore you.... 
As you know from my previous posts, finals are next week. I've been insanely busy trying to get all of that stuff taken care of. 

(I was pretty proud that I whipped this paper up in about 45 minutes. Procrastination at its best, I suppose.)

I also won my first giveaway!! I was so stoked!

National Nursing Home Week is next week, so I've been doing a lot of preparing at work for that.  Tomorrow is 50s Day, so you can count on a few posts about those events. 

This is a sign I was working on for the ice cream floats booth tomorrow. Yahoo!


Spring is here!



I blew up a ton of balloons, and I "did not" suck helium from a couple of duds.


And of course, I couldn't help but offer the oldies a mustache.

Today is my day off. I got to enjoy it with Anthony, and it was an incredible day!  We went to Wal-Mart and got stuff for a picnic, and then we went to Busiek Park to hang out in the water/trails.  It was loads of fun. He killed a lot of "snakes" for me. ;)

After that, Anthony watched me play Portal and gave me tons of tips.  I've decided that I'm going to be a cool girlfriend and play video games.  I'm starting to love it.. Oh dear.

We have now watched tons of Buffy, and I am completely hooked. Ah well- at least it's almost summer! It's a guarantee that a tv show will suck the life out of my free time.

And now, to wish my mom a Happy Mother's Day! She is an incredible woman, and I can't wait to see her next month!

Cheers, all!

Good luck on finals Liz! I love what you did for National Nursing Home Week. Lately, I've been doing a little research on some nursing homes in my area. I'm thinking of maybe working at one and since this thought's been in my head, your blog pops up in my head too hehe. I love reading about you and your oldies:) Also, Portal looks really great! My husband and I have been meaning to pick it up. Is it as cool as it looks in the commercials??

Congrats on winning the giveaway! Very cute!
I love your photos from the projects you've been doing at work. They all look so fun!
Ok...Portal 1 or Portal 2? That is a crazy game. I haven't actually played it, but I watch Steven play sometimes. I play WOW with him or Little Big Planet. Those are about the only two that I can tolerate. LOL!

Liz you are so great for the lovely families in your nursing home. I am so proud of you for working with this group.

I'm glad you and Ant got to spend together. It is fun to spend time with our guys!

I love to play video games...though I don't play the ones Bill plays. HOWEVER, we do play Everquest together. And have played WoW together too. It's fun. And addicting.
