Good Bye Mrs. Whiney Pants

Oh my. I've just been miserable for the past week or so. Stressed to the max and although I totally internalize most of it (not the healthiest thing to do), I feel like a horrible person. I feel like I've neglected my family and my pets and my house. But I'm done. Yes!!! I wrote my ethics final this morning. I have never been so excited to walk out of an exam. I almost floated out of there, plus I think I might have even done well, even better. This is a picture of me yesterday before I left for my final day on pediatrics. It was a fun rotation and I think I might like to work there, but I'm so tired right now.

I've had this book propped up on my desk for about a month now, still wrapped in the plastic. I promised myself I wouldn't open it until I finished my course. So today I came home and ripped off the plastic. It's such a lovely book. I'm going to savour it for the rest of the afternoon. Then I think I might finish my apron for the Sassy Apron Swap. Totally forgot about that deadline and just relax. Aaah, relax...

Thanks to everyone for the kind words of encouragement. I made it!

Good for you! Now unwrap that book, plop your feet up and have a nice cuppa tea and RELAX--doesn't it feel great to be DONE?

Congrats on being done! Now you can have a lovely weekend! I absolutely adore Amy Butler and have looked through that book. She has such style! Have fun reading it and looking at the great photos. Hope Lizzie is better.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, which was over a week ago now. I have now returned from Barcelona and as requested have just posted some piccies. Not loads, as most of the time I was working.
Great job on the paper - now time to unwind huh!
Take care and stop by again soon

What willpower to not look at that book while studying! I'd be peering at it in a minute when procrastinating! Congrats on finishing your exam!

Thank you so much for the lovely comment that you left on my blog about the dinosaurs. x
