quick Update

It's been over 2 months since my last posting. I'm feeling a little guilty about that since the world of Ashley Thomas is in a bit of chaos these days and there is much call for encouragement. I've had "blog posting" on my to-do list for the past several weeks, and I've got a loooong running list of ideas of things that MUST be said, but I'm human and I can only do what I can do in a given day. What I have been busy with? A mixture of the following:

1. Christmas was i know quiet sometime ago now but none the less it was a very busy time of year and relly has not slowed down.
2. Moving--UGH, i don't ever want to have to move again! Joey and I moved to St. George last June and the first week of January we were back. This happened for a number of reasons but mainly just because we made some BAD financial decisions.
3. Trying to secure a job for myself. (Joey is at Layton Marketplace Wal-mart pharmacy)I hated leaving St. George and Dixie Regional but we felt like we needed to be close to our family in this time of financial crisis. Well, i am not sure it has really helped us by moving back up here but that leads me to the next several things on my list.
4. Deciding to go back to school. AFter several job interviews and not securing a job as of yet, i have decided I am going back to school. I am going to be starting school again on March 30th 2009 to get my RN. With both my RRT and my RN will be able to make way good money and it will hopefully open up a lot of doors for me.
5. Planning my best friend's bridal shower. It was fun to do it for her but I quiet honestly do not ever want to be in charge of another one of those again! I am glad that I had my mom to help...she probably ended up doing alot more then she ever thought that she would have to. Anyways...that kept us busy with making invites and shower favors and trying to come up with a couple of fun games. I also made her a shower book. I think it turned out WAY cute. We had fun evem though not to many people showed up. My mom's chicken salad was a hit! (Everyone went back for seconds).
6. Just in General just spending time with my friends and family. I am glad we moved back up here just to be closer to our family and friends. Oh and we managed to get family pictures done right before Nathan and Pamela left. Here is the link if any of you want to see them. Even though We are closer to friends and family I miss my RT buddies and my one CNA buddy at Dixie.
7. I am trying to keep my head on straight and hold it high. Not getting a job has really gotten me down in the dumps and i am having a bit of a hard time staying "sane" but i am just trying to take one day at a time. I guess that is all you can do. I am going to be going back to work on BMT (Bone Marrow transplant) two days a week at the U of U hospital. I am really actually very excited about that. I know that GOD works in mysterious ways i am just praying for a miracle!

Well, thats it for now. I will try to be better about getting you updates. I will post pictures and write about more specific things tomarrow or another day.

Hugs and Smiles!

Hi Ashley. I am your mom's older cousin on the Fry side and have enjoyed reading your blog and about you on your mom's blog. Sounds like you have made some really smart decisions...forget about the others. Nursing will always be an open door. Enjoy your classes and your family. You are a very rich young woman.
