Apparently I'm just an epic failure at blogging. I just never seem to find the time to sit down and write anything. But it's Spring Break, so I figured I could spare a few minutes.

Today I bought tickets to see the Glee Cast live in NYC and I am so, so excited. I never, ever do anything impulsive, and this fits the bill. My seats are really good, although I may try for better ones on Friday when they go on general sale. Glee has got to be my favorite show on TV right now-I love everything about it. I love the writing, I love the music, I love the characters, and I adore the cast!

Hmm...what else to say? Besides work and school, not a whole lot is going on. My best friend from childhood is having a baby! which is totally insane to me. I mean, I love babies, I do, but at the end of the day when I've been spit up on and constantly had little people demanding my attention at every moment I'm glad to be able to hand them off! Her baby shower is Saturday, so I need to go shopping which is dangerous because me+baby clothes= OMG I don't care how much work they are I want one right now!

One of my favorite families at church who had their daughter in the baby room with me for over a year told us last week they're expecting again! The mom came up to the door and told her husband to "Tell Miss Kait what we're bringing her in September.....a baby!" And my thoughts? Super, no one has ever gotten me a baby before!

My dog is officially the laziest dog in the world, but boy do I love her!

ABCs of me!

Hi y'all! I know I've been horrible about updating this blog, but I had a few minutes tonight and thought I'd at least put up this list of the ABCs of me that I found on another blog. Life has been super busy, but my best friend is coming into town later this week so I'm hoping to blog about our adventures once she's here.

A – Age: 22
B – Bed size: Twin
C – Chore you hate: loading the dishwasher
D – Dog’s name: Willow
E – Essential start your day: breakfast, usually yogurt, and sometimes Starbucks
F – Favorite color: pink
G – Gold or Silver: silver
H – Height: 5'3"
I – Instruments you play(ed): er...none.
J – Job title: Student, nanny, baby-sitter, future Child Life Specialist
K – Kid(s): None, so far.
L – Living arrangements: with my parents for now
M – Mom’s name: Becky
N – Nicknames: Kait, Katie-Pie, Pie, Pust
O – Overnight hospital stay other than birth: 4 days for appendicitis last year, and then overnight following a surgery that was supposed to be laproscopic but turned into a lapraotomy.
P – Pet Peeve: People who don't wash their hands. I have plenty more, but we'd be here all day
Q – Quote from a movie: "Hey, it's me, Bailey. You don't have to use this in your movie or anything, although now that I think of it, fainting in Wallman's does kind of qualify me as a loser. But then again, wearing a price sticker on your forehead probably makes you one, too. Ya know, I don't know, Tibby, maybe the truth is there's a little bit of loser in all of us, ya know? Being happy isn't having everything in your life be perfect. Maybe it's about stringing together all the little things like wearing these pants or getting to a new level of Dragon's Lair - making those count for more than the bad stuff. Maybe we just get through it... and that's all we can ask for. " The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
R – Right or left handed: Right

Z – Zoo favorite: Otters

Wow! I can hardly believe it's been almost a year since I updated this blog. I originally started it to keep friends and family updated about my time at camp, but quickly learned I was far too busy to blog. Who would have thought that having 10 critically ill kiddos in your care 24/7 would be so time consuming? :) Camp really was an indescribable experience, which may be why I never tried to write about it once I got home. Maybe one day soon I can put those thoughts and feelings into words. Until then, I'd like to try to keep this blog updated with my daily adventures, because I'm so busy sometimes I need a way to remember what I've done! I'm not sure if anyone out there still reads this, but I'd love to hear from you if you do. I promise this blog will be a lot more exciting in the future. For now, I guess I should do a short update on what's been going on in the year since I last updated. Let's see....
In the last year:

~I finished another year of college (only 20 credit hours left to go!)
~I started working at a new church that I adore
~I went to FL to visit friends (a lot)
~I went to the beach
~I spent lots of time playing with wonderful kids
~I fell in love with someone I though was a prince, but he turned out to be just another frog
~I had surgery twice
~I turned 22!

I think that's about it, for the major events anyway! The past year hasn't always been easy, but I've learned that even when life isn't easy...it's always beautiful.

Hi Everyone!

Sorry it has taken me so long to write (again), but we are much busier than I ever imagined we would be. This has been a summer like no other, full of lots of ups and downs. Here at camp, you can want to smile, laugh, cry, stay here, and go home all at the same time. It can be a little hard to process things, because you have no time to yourself. We're wrapping things up at camp, and only have one session left. I'll be home on the 19th, so in 10 days. I can't believe it! I'm really excited to come home and get back to my normal life, but at the same time it is very scary to think about leaving here. At any rate, I hope you all are having a safe and fun summer. The kids from our last session just left, so we are headed to Sea World tomorrow and Universal Studios and Island of Adventures on Sunday. It should be a good time, even if it's really hot!

Hi everybody,

I'm sorry it has taken so long to update my blog. Life at camp is seriously hectic. The campers get up at 7 am and don't go to bed from anywhere from 9:30-11:00 depending on the age group you have. So it is constant go, go, go until rest hour after lunch when we all pass out in our beds from exhaustion. The first week and a half of training was good, and all the staff got really close. The first week of camp also went as well as could be expected, we still have some kinks to iron out though. At the end of the week, all our girls cried when they had to go home, so I guess that means that overall, we had a successful week and the children felt loved. We had a day off in between sessions last Monday, but I was feeling crummy so I just hung around camp. Then Thursday(Camper Arrival Day), I was put on isolation in my cabin because my stomach was hurting really bad and I had no appetite. After resting a while, I decided to go up to The Patch (our Medical Building) and get checked out by a doctor. They sent me to an Urgent Care place about 30 minutes away from camp because they couldn't diagnosis me here and then Urgent Care sent me to the ER because they were afraid I had appendicitis. After being at Urgent Care all night and driving another 30 minutes to the hospital with one of the nurses from camp, I finally got to the ER at about 11:30. I spend the rest of the night in the ER and then got taken to surgery at around 6:30 in the morning to get my appendix out. The nurses from camp were awesome and took turns staying with me until they finally discharged me from the hospital Sunday afternoon. It was a long few days, and I was still sore for a few days after getting released from the hospital, but I'm feeling much better now.

I am also very excited about next Thursday, because I'm flying home on the 3rd for the 4th of July. I can't wait to see all my friends and family back in GA!

Hi everyone!

I made it to camp safe and sound (except for some luggage disasters at the airport). I am having a really great time. We have been going pretty much non-stop here at camp since last Thursday when we started our staff training. I hope you all are well!
