Zendala Dare #10

Welcome back to the Zendala Dare!  It's been a very busy and productive week for me.  As I am writing this I am preparing to go work a 48 hour shift on the ambulance for a total of 84 hours this week!  It's all worth it because I will be able to have a lot of time off next week to enjoy my new toy.

2012 Chevy Volt
I'm pretty excited!  The husband and I decided to take the plunge and go electric.  It has a 40 mile battery and gas backup engine.  Since we got it last Sunday I've driven it 120 miles and used .2 gallons of gas.  At this rate I won't have to go to the gas station for another two months.  How strange is that!  Do any of you have an electric car?  I would be interested to hear what your experiences are with them.  

I also just found out today that I have been accepted to nursing school!  We have a really great program at our local junior college and I am excited to take the next step in my career.  My heart will always be in paramedicine but becoming a nurse will allow me to advance my desires to teach and provide a little more stability in today's fickle job market.  The husband and I still have some wrinkles to iron out but if all goes as planned I will be starting in the Spring of 2013.  

And now for the best news of all........a new Zendala Dare!

Zendala Dare #10

Fill in the template with your favorite tangles!

This week I managed to squeeze in two tiles.

Tangles: N' Zeppel, Charlie, Amaze

Tangles: Black Pearlz, Space, Courant (tangleation)

My only goal this week was to create two tiles that were very different and I think I managed that.  It's still amazes me week after week that I never end up with what I had originally pictured. 

If you complete the Dare please remember to link up below.  It makes it a lot more fun!

I hope you all have a fantastic week!
