Six Word Saturday

So many things, so little time

I leave Anchorage in 41 days.
41 days to get everything together for our big move to Minnesota.
I'm so ecstatic, sad, overwhelmed, anxious, worried, etc.
I'm just a total basket case.
I got most of my to-do list done which I'm really happy about.
There's still quite a few things to do.
I'll still be in Alaska until June 20th because we're going to Southeast Alaska.
If you've been a reader of mine, you know that Hubster is Tlingit Indian
His family comes from Juneau, Sitka, Kake, and Petersburg, Alaska, and every even year, the Tlingit people get together for celebration. I'm so excited to be apart of celebration!
I haven't been to Southeast Alaska so I'm really excited to visit the villages. Hubster's family is really excited to have me there. They all know me or know about me and excited for me to see and learn about their home.
I can't wait for the beaches and the fishing!!
We'll be leaving on the big ferry on the 20th of June to head to Bellingham, WA where we will then drive to Minnesota.
I just want to get my to-do list done so I can relax (somewhat) and visit with the family before I leave.

I will definitely be missing this when I leave.

Head on over to see what every one else is saying in six words.

Spring is finally here in Alaska!


My MiL is the Queen of Cacti.
She has a million all around the house. For some reason, I cannot keep a cactus alive if my life depended on it.
This year, a particular cactus bloomed.
According to my MiL, this cactus has never bloomed.
It's the first sign that Spring is upon us here in the Arctic!



Aren't they beautiful??

Random pics

 Cosmo got a new haircut. Isn't he cute?!

 This goose tried to attack me. I went to my father-in-law's shop to check the mail when I went to Wasilla to visit my sister and I heard this awful noise like a bird was dying. I couldn't see anything, so I emptied out the mailbox. I turned around and saw this goose coming at me full force. Apparently I was too close for comfort to her nest. Whoopsie!

 Yeah...I got to clean and organize this mess.

Cosmo sunbathing whie I was cleaning out the garage. It finally reached 50 degrees up here in Alaska!!! Summer is on it's way.

Happy birthday to me

Today is my birthday.
I'm 29.
It's going to be the last birthday ever!! Ha!

I don't know what is planned for today, but I was able to see my niece and nephew yesterday when I drove the hour to see my sister.


Adorable aren't they?
I'm really going to miss them when I move to Minnesota.
45 more days.

Happy Hump Day!

New favorite snack

Kale chips!
I didn't think I would like it, but it's pretty tasty.



Have you tried kale chips?

Hair loss

I've been losing my hair.
I haven't really noticed it until last week.
I always thought I was losing the same amount as always because the number of hairs in my brush have not changed, but I guess it's not growing as strong as always.

For the past two weeks, I've noticed how easily my hair breaks. I go to put it up in a ponytail for work, and a handful of hairs will break off.

I don't know if this is due to stress, my body lacking something, or related to my PCOS.
It's probably all three things.

I went to Walgreens tonight and bought some Biotin supplements after talking with a doctor at work.
He told me some things that I really like.
We'll see how it goes. I'm going to start taking them tomorrow.

I also bought some special all natural shampoo that will hopefully help clean my scalp really good.
I suffered from cradle cap as a little tyke and it has never fully gone away.

Has anyone had any experience with Biotin supplements?
What about those PCOSers?
Do you suffer from hair loss?

Randomness

I have so much crap going through my brain on a daily basis.
Maybe if I dump it all, it'll make room for new crap.
Bullets for your pleasure ;)
  • It's less than two months before Hubster and I head out of Anchorage. I'm getting really nervous as the day gets closer!
  • We finally paid off our truck and credit cards so now it's just save, save, save!
  • Things at work are getting pretty hairy. We have so many disrepectful members on the team and my boss just doesn't seem to care. He named me a supervisor so I could handle everyone, but doesn't let me do anything when people act out, disrespect other co-workers or even patients.
  • The hospital has been talking about not renewing our contract. I'm worried I'm going to be laid off before we leave for Minnesota. If that happens, we're screwed! I'm counting on the rest of my checks to go in the bank so we have money for food, gas, and hotels.
  • MiL is getting meaner and meaner by the day. Her drinking is completely out of control. I'm so stressed out between worrying about money, my job, and getting everything packed.
  • I still have quite a few things that need to get done before we leave. I still have to get my windshield replaced, a tune up for the truck, and a box made for our TV. I also need to sell my couch and bed. Ugh!
  • My birthday is coming up and I'm not looking forward to it. I hate my birthday. It makes me feel like a failure every year when I don't have a baby to show. It's just a reminder that my uterus is failing me year after year.
  • a;dkfjaoeirnlekja;sdoijfalkdsjf --- Yeah, other stuff in my head floating around. I can't even bring it out in words.
Well I do feel better after typing it all out.
I just have to keep up my head and push through.
