I Heart Spring Break

Don't breaks from life always come when you need them the most? Thank goodness for this one! I spent yesterday doing some school work and hanging out with a couple of nursing school friends.

For our mental health class, we had to go to a self help group and do a little write up on it. So we spent an hour at AA. I have to hand it to anyone who is going through recovery. That's got to be a tough road to walk everyday.

As far as productivity, I received my first custom order for 100 bars of soap a while ago and the time has come to get it made! By the way, I couldn't be more excited about this!

Rosemary Mint Soap

This is the soap in the mold. Rosemary mint with a green clay swirl. I think it's going to turn out really well. And the house smells great!

My sister was so sweet and sent me a lovely bouquet to cheer me up after the other day. So I'll leave you with a picture of that. I hope it makes you smile too!

Hey that soap really looks nice... I am sure your house does smell pretty delish! Sorry to hear you have been feeling stressed with all the schoolwork and life... You are such a "Super Star" I am sure you will have plenty of offers when the time comes:)

Lovely soap! And the flowers - what a nice surprise, and great sister!

If it's any consolation, when I graduated NS - there were no jobs available, and only 3 people had jobs at the graduation ceremony (I wasn't one of them), but I had a job within 2 weeks. You'll do just fine. I know it's hard to believe now, and the mental health stuff just creeps me out. I would never be able to be a psych nurse!

Anyway, hang in there - it gets better - and I've been living it for over a decade now!

mmm, I feel like I can smell your soap right now. The boquet was lovely - it is great when breaks come just when you need them!

I'm not in recovery but worked in a drug/ alcohol halfwway house for awhile - I still the say the Serenity Prayer often! It gives me "the courage to change the things I can..." Take care!
