Nurse Betty BScN (cand): Long May Wedding

Nurse Betty BScN (cand)

I am a 36 year old mother of 2. I entered university in 2005 for the BScN program but had no idea what a roller coaster ride it would be. My other interests are boating, cottaging, gardening, sitting, doing nothing, vegging and of course hard core belly button contemplating.

Long May Wedding

Here I am on the Friday of the Long May Weekend, am I sitting in my car trying to get through traffic to spend the weekend at the cottage like I should be? NO I am sitting on my couch feeling bitter because I have to go to a wedding tomorrow. Honestly, who gets married on the Long May Weekend??? So my annoyance does not end with the destruction of my weekend, it continues. I of course do not have anything to wear to said wedding, I don't wear fancy clothes EVER. I consider myself dressed up when my socks match. So there I was today spending the better part of my afternoon trying to find somethng to wear. Guess what, I have nothing. I went to 6 different stores and came home with nothing but 2 new bras and a wallet. So I am freaking out slightly, when I got home I looked at the invitation to see how much time I would have in the morning to try and shop some more and that leads me to annoyance number 3. The ceremony starts at 1:00 but the reception doesn't start untiil 6:30!!! Come on, what the heck is that about? Either the ceremony is ridiculously long or these people are just testing us to see if we will actually jump through all the hoops they set out for us. The best part of all this is that these people really are not that important in the grand scheme of our lives. The bride was someone that the husband went to high school with 20 years ago. He hasn't seen her in about 12 years. But he is like that, he makes a friend and he is friends with that person for life, one of the reasons I love him (even if it drives me crazy sometimes) We have never met the groom. There is even more funny stuff about this situation but I am not going to write it because you will think that I am making it up. The husband feels obligated to go because apparently no one else is giving up their long weekend and the number of invited guests that are actually coming is very low. Okay, I know what you're thinking, that I'm insensitive and selfish, and you would be pretty well right, when it comes to going to the cottage I am both those things. Of course I'm happy for the couple, and I wish them a wonderful day, I just hope I can paint a smile on my face and find something appropriate to wear.

Oh well, so I am home for the Two Four weekend, its for the best, I need to do research on these essays, and the dial up of the cottage is just more than I could bear.

I guess the shopping issues bring me to another quest of mine. I really need to lose some weight. I have gotten so doughy sitting in lectures for the past year. I couldn't believe how badly I looked in all the stuff I tried on. I am looking for any suggestions of how to fit exercise into my school day, any suggestions that don't include waking up at 4 in the morning to run in the dark that is. I ride my bike when weather permits, so I've got that going for me.

So happy Victoria Day everyone out there. If you are sitting on your dock right now, good on you. And if you are staying home because you have something else that you can't get out of, I feel your pain.

Thanks for reading. Have a great, and safe Long Weekend.

piece of advice from my youth: don't put the extinguished firework in the bonfire, even if you think its a dud, it will chase you with a loud bang, my sister still freaks out when we have fireworks
