The week before the fourth was crazy because I spent almost every day at our restaurant working and helping out with whatever I could knowing it was my last week. That weekend we had a bunch of family come into town for the holiday. It was SO great to see my aunts and uncles and catch up with them. I had big plans for this fourth of July but they didn't work out. B is taking a summer class and had class the next morning at 8 am and I spent the entire day packing up my room at home. In about a month, I will no longer have my room at home, insert sad face here. My step-dads two daughters are moving in because their mom moved to VA so they will be taking our guest room and my room. When this whole idea of my step-sisters moving in came about, I was really excited and it didn't really bother me that one of them would be taking my room. But packing up everything and sorting what I want to move to Raleigh and what needs to go into storage was really eye opening and it made me really sad. I am still excited that my step-sisters will get to spend unlimited time with their dad because he truly is amazing, but at the same time, I will really miss my room.
I came back to Raleigh on the fifth because my CNA certification class started on the sixth. I decided it would be better to get my CNA class over with during the summer so I wouldn't have to worry about it during the fall semester. This means that I have class four days a week from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm. It may not sound exhausting sitting in a desk all day but let me tell you, it is. Yesterday we got to spend time in the lab which was a lot better that sitting at a desk taking notes. In lab we got to practice our skills hands on and I really got to know a lot of the girls in my class better which was awesome. So I can now wash my hands properly, make a bed with a patient in it, give a bed bath and lots of other exciting things! We have a test on Tuesday on the first six chapters we covered and a test on Thursday on the next seven chapters.
So, this is just a quick recap on what has been going on in my life for the past two weeks. I hope everyone else has been slightly less busy and enjoying their summer!
