Not feeling so hot

In my last post I left out a biggggg sinuses are being attacked by ragweed that is blooming at home in Texas right now. I haven't had sinus issues for almost three years, which is awesome considering I lived with monthly attacks for years. The last time was the worst when I lost my voice. I don't think this time will get that bad, but I am feeling pretty bad. This being said I am in San Fran anyway trying to have a great time.
As a travel nurse, most of us strive to do a few things. One make good money and two be in some of  the most awesome cities in America. Now I do the first one very well.  The second I have done an ok job at doing.  My friend Steph that is here working right now has managed to do both.  She lives right near the bay and in my opinion, the heart of SF. She doesn't have a car due to parking and expense and everything is so close. She has a great apartment. I am grateful for her generosity kindness for letting me stay with her.
Today I will walk six blocks to get my rental car that cost me $20 to park last night and drive down to Santa Clara and visit the hospital that I will be working. This afternoon I will visit the girls I worked with when I was here working last year. Tomorrow I have a short class/meeting in Livermoore and then off til I leave for home on Sunday.

Getting protein has been hard this week due to all the swelling and drainage and my lack of wanting to have a protein shake, but today I will have to go in search of a GNC as I like their premade shakes.

When I get home I work Monday Tuesday and Wednesday and then I am off again to Chicago and my very first BOOBS where I will get to meet a few of my heros. Grab your capes girls I am coming. Lol

Have a great weekend all!!!!!

Sea life is wonderful.

Now back to the real world, or at least for a few days. The cruise was great and I really loved seeing my sister and niece having such a good time. It was their first.
Yes I drank to much and didn't have enough protein and no excuerise finally caught up with me!  I gained six pounds. Yikes!!!  I know how to fix this and will.

I am off today to San Fran for the weekend, some for work and some for play. Can't wait to see my friends in SF area!

Next weekend is the big weekend!!!!  I can't wait to meet you all and hug your necks.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Cruise Time

I leave out tomorrow for Mexico.  A cruise......yes now that is the life.  Having been on farther trips this year with Gertty(my band), I am not to nervous however, this will be somewhat of a new experience with her.  I do hope I wont get sea sick.  Vomitting or at least retching like a 7 foot truck driver, is to say the least painful.  I know I will be fine, just a few pretrip jitters.
My sister and niece who have never been on a cruise before, are going with me.  This excites me to no end!

I am still working on plans for my trip to Chicago for my first BOOBS, and wow am I excited to meet everyone. I want to do everything it  I have never been to Chicago and have always wanted to visit.

Oct 7 I will fly out to Silicon Valley for my next contract.  I will get to see my friends that I worked with last year when I was in Vallejo.  I will fly home the end of Oct for the first annual OAC convention.  A friend and I will be staying at the Anatole Hotel, which is suppose to be very nice.

Many exciting things happening still the year and I am ready.....

Til next time and Bon Voyage.....
