Year 2 - Day 228
(Turkey Green Bean Stir Fry)

Whew.  Today was a long day in the kitchen.  I decided last week that I would try and prep some of our dinners on Sunday as well so I had less to do during the week.  Boy…I din’t realize how much extra work that would be!!

Good thing is, everything turned out looking delicious!

Year 2/Day 227

Year 2 - Day 227

Ok.  I’m gonna just go ahead and say it.  I am struggling bad with this whole nursing school thing.  I have given everything I’ve got this week as far as being disciplined and spending the necessary time on studying.  I really have.  I worked on Tuesday, which put me back a whole day…and I’ve been struggling to catch up since.  There is just SOOOOO much on this study schedule I created.  And after my meeting with one of my professors…there was even MORE!

My biggest struggle, I suppose, is that I never really gave my studying the time it needed throughout the past few years and now…it all comes down to one test.  One big, bad, nasty test.  Nursing school is no joke.  I’m learning that the hard way this last year of school.  It’s just all so overwhelming and the harder I try to catch up, the more behind I feel.

Plus, I want to organinze my craft room, work on quilting, make some pretty candles, catch up on my blog, go on adventures and photograph nature, play video games, hang out with my boyfriend, go to more painting classes, use my awesome prismacolor colored pencils, exercise more, cook more, listen to music, watch tv, go to movies, hang out with friends, read books that aren’t nursing related, fold paper cranes…

I’m trying to not feel trapped by school.  Because if that happens, I usually make things worse.  And that’s the last thing I want right now.

I do want to finish school.
I do want to graduate and pass the NCLEX.
I do think I’ll find a job I’ll enjoy and be a great nurse.

One day at a time…I know.  I just needed to clear my head and that’s one reason I created this blog.

Guess I’ll get back to studying.

(Note: I did have an awesome study break today.  Will and I met up with some friends at KoKai, my favorite Thai restaurant.  Afterwards, we splurged and got some ice cream from Frosty Caboose.  All of it was delicious and the company was great!!)

Time for more omelet muffins!!  Yummy!

The best part about this recipe is that you can add different ingredients to each one.

You like spinach, but they don’t?  Easy!

Year 2 - Day 200
Veggie taco salad, homemade peanut butter, and omelet muffins

Another day of meal prep done.  And with great success I’d say.  There are some delicious meals ahead this week, but I’m most proud of my homemade peanut butter.  It was surprisingly easy and super delicious!

Sidenote: who knew wheat berries would be so hard to find!! :/ I’ve been to THREE stores today…and two of them were “healthy” stores.  Well, at least amazon rocks. Guess I’ll just wait until Tuesday.
