Here's the reason that we are now CONVINCED we aren't up to having kids....
8 week old puppy. Need I say more?
I can't decide if she's the Good or the Bad. Depends on the moment!
Her competition is Nursing School!
I can't decide if it's the Good or the Bad, either!
These last few weeks have been crunch time in school. Right when I was getting used to the pace of quizzes every day and tests every other weekend....it's time for skills check off, medication and IV calculation test, last lecture test, skills hours due AND the final exam! Wow!
When did all that happen and how did I not see it coming?? Don't get me wrong, I enjoy learning and am still totally excited to be working on getting my RN...but the "S" word is not fun.
Stress is something I've been really good at avoiding in my life.
Well, here's where I have placed myself now...ST(me)RESS.
Right in the middle!!
Oh, well. Like I tell myself when I see others freaking out about their crazy situations....
"you picked your poison".
I definitely chose this...I just didn't quite anticipate it. Does that make sense?
I guess I thought it would be easier.
I didn't even fathom this would entail studying 10 chapters in two weeks or chapter that are 20-50 pages each! My grades are pretty much what I expected and hoped for, I just didn't think I'd have to try this hard to get mediocre grades.
On a positive note, I start clinical rotations mid-October.
SO VERY MUCH looking forward to that!
I will spend 10 hour days, every Friday and Saturday, in the hospital setting.
First few weeks are Labor and Delivery. Then I do some weeks of Medical/Surgical at the VA Hospital and then Pediatrics.
We should be done mid-December. I should post a pic of me in my school scrubs!
I'll be sure to do that.
So, you be the judge. Good or Bad? I still can't decide.
I'll end with the Beautiful......
My new wedding ring. We upgraded and I'm in love again.
I think it's just fabulous. It was love at first sight. That always feels good. :)
Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment! It's easy, I promise. Just give it a try.
Now....off to study!
