What felt like my first weekend off in forever

This was seriously the first weekend I felt like I had "off" in FOREVER. Even though I've had weekends where I didn't have to work, they were filled with plans that usually involved a good bit of traveling and visiting and being busy, which was great, but this weekend I didn't want to do anything, so I didn't (besides homework). And it was amazing.

Friday I had to work, which was okay. I filled my break time with weird doodles, which were sent to Derek for entertainment purposes. I'm sure he enjoyed them. As I was headed home, Derek suggested meeting me in town for sushi, which was fine by me! After work dates are still dates in my book. Even if I look a hot mess in my scrubs and nappy pony tail.

 
 After playing a few rounds of "I don't know, what do you want to do?" We finally decided to head to the river. It was only a 40% chance of rain, we should be okay (so he said). Well after about an hour of cruising, a nice storm cell came through. We waited it out under a bridge with a few middle agers who thought they were still in college. Cool. We also saw a boat in the process of being un-sunk and I finished this awesome book (look for a review soon).
 
 
After spending a ridiculous amount of time (around two hours) looking for my flash drive (which ended up being at Starbucks) I spent the majority of Sunday doing homework. One paper, and two care plans later, I can say I was exhausted. Good news: class is on the 4th this week so besides my clinicals, I don't have class!!! (It's the little things, y'all.) And I've decided to not work any days between Thursday and Saturday so I can have a propah Fourth of July Celebration (think jorts, tank tops, time on the lake, and American Flag Budweisers).
 
 
I hope everyone had an absolutely fabulous weekend. Link up with Sami so I can go read all about it!

I love those kinds of weekends! I totally know what you mean, there's something so much more relaxing about a weekend where nothing is planned. I'm anxious to read your review of that book! I read her book "The Castaways" and I really liked it.
