One of the most popular months of the year, because it's awesome. Hi October!
I didn't blog very much in September, but what I did say, I feel, was very relevant: speaking out about aging out of foster care, and sharing some gorgeous moments I've had. I went to Oktoberfest, participated in my first 'real' pinup contest, and had one of my biggest moments of growth surrounded by my favorite mountains. I feel so good about this past month because I accomplished a lot of milestones, both personal and professional.
This month is going to be...well, something. The way our work schedule pans out is that if one person takes vacation, their relief covers for the duration of the vacation, plus their own shifts. This means on average, nine or ten days of straight work with no days off. They are all 12 hour shifts, an hour away from where I live. The general consensus is that I'll be dead by the time I'm done. Immediately after this stint, I'm boarding a flight to Tennessee for another five. After that, I come back home and host a Halloween party, and the month will be over.
Go to physical therapy FAIL Well, I did get the referral, so I'm halfway there...
Get my uniforms FAIL Not my fault. Don't ever use Skaggs and expect prompt service...
Send out thank you cards and repayments for Flemith's surgery FAIL I am so upset this hasn't happened...and I'm hoping I can use my 120 hour 'workweek' to get some leeway done.
Start a new blog series FAIL Whoops haha, that totally didn't happen.
Take more outfit photos FAIL Yeahhhh I barely wore clothes when I was home. HA!
4/4, not too shabby. Here's what I've put together for October.
Survive Tennessee Sounds hilarious, unless you know my story...
Keep on top of checking account With going out of town I want to really keep an eye on money.
Plan a good party How? No idea. I'll figure it out.
Get thank you's sent out before Tennessee No better thing to do at work when it's quiet!
Go to another pinup contest I must be insane to take this on considering my schedule.
Give Charity her present I failed to make it to her party (thanks work) so...late gift it is.
Flemeth's neutering Oh, it's scheduled for Tuesday and I'm so nervous :'(
And now, time for the linkup! I kind of failed at this horrifically last month, but we'll see if I can hold it together for October.
