Wish me luck + article links

Good evening! I hope this post finds you at the end of a relaxing weekend and maybe you’re even lucky enough to have the day off tomorrow.

relaxation at its finest

Our weekend was fun and relaxing. I headed into it with a huge “to do” list and nothing really got done! Friday night we headed right out to dinner with friends for a congratulatory dinner. In the past couple of months they got married, got pregnant, and bought their first house – talk about a big year.

After dinner we met up with my husband’s work friends to hang out and eventually ended up at a bluegrass concert. I crawled into bed at 1:30am (so late for me) and slept until noon on Saturday. More friends time and hanging out yesterday led to very little getting accomplished. Oh well, it was our first weekend back home together in a very long time so it was nice.

Question for the photography folks – last night I was trying to learn more about my camera and doing some experimenting with the manual setting (I have a Canon Powershot G12). I mimicked the settings used on the Canon website but every time I tried to take a picture all I got was a black screen. No matter how much light I used, it came out black. Anyone know why this is happening?

One big thing I did this weekend was collect all of my info for applying to Nursing School!! I started online pre-requisite classes last August and this is my official application into the program. I’m getting nervous because I hear that it fills up quickly, I hope I get accepted for this fall. Wish me luck!!

Tonight I’m working on catching up on laundry, food prep (yummy kale salad for the week’s lunches), writing articles and anything else I can manage before I pass out tonight.
