Ok! Wow! It has been a long time since I have even LOOKED at my blog! Family, school and work took up all of my time, but we have begun a new stage in our life and school (fortunately)is not part of it! I am very pleased to say that I have finished nursing school!!!! I passed my NCLEX in 75 questions (thank you very much) and right now as I type am at my first job as an RN!! I am looking forward to graduation on the 26th, mostly because I am graduating with honors and yes, I worked my butt off for that! If anybody ever says that nursing school isn't hard, well, they are either retarded or a liar!! I along with 39 other new grads can attest to that!!! I have some new pictures to put up and I will do that when I am on my own computer, but thought I would just say a quick something while I had the chance! TTFN!!!
Ok seriously!!!! I don't know what the heck happened with my post, sorry for the "star wars" effect on the words!!!! (once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away)!!! Don't know what I'm talking about? Just keep going down!!!! down I said, stop reading this!!!!
Ok! Ok! I know everybody who has a facebook account is probably sick of hearing about it, but guess what??? I FREAKIN PASSED THE STUPID NCLEX PN BOARDS!!!!! Ok, so I think I might have it out of my system! Oh, wait, no not yet! IT'S A MIRACLE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, I'm done now. I know it isn't as big of a deal as passing the RN boards, but hey, you gotta start somewhere and this has been a long time coming! I honestly have worked my tush off and nursing school is so incredibly hard! Seriously! I have dark circles under my eyes that emphasize the bags that go with it, I have a twin (pimple) growing out of my chin, I would post a picture, but I don't want to scare anyone. And to top everything off I think I have an ulcer, its that or I have a massive underground, pirated acid factory in my gut working overtime! The elation of getting my news was short lived when I had to go to school and take two more tests, talk about raining on my parade! Well, I wouldn't have it any other way, because it means that I am still in school and I am going to be celebrating passing my RN in September which to me is more important to me (at this point). My poor husband and kids, they have been great and I hope that when this is all said and done, I will be able to pay them back ten-fold! Thanks to all of my support-homies! I couldn't have gotten this far without my support group and you know who you are! I love you guys!!!!!!!
JC got his Webelos badge! What a cool dude!! Apparently he worked really hard on it says his scout leader, who has been so good to all of the boys. He only has one more "thing" to get his arrow of light Here is the scout master counting out ALL of his awards. 6 in all counting his Webelos badge. Ok, so he is a cute little (big) man, but how I hate being stuck in pictures!
Our family started in August of 1994 when Ryan and I got married. Our family grew when Shayla was born 6/16/95, again when JC was born 2/19/98 and one more time when Ryan was born 9/26/02, just when we thought our family was complete, we decided to add two dogs: Sadie (lab/retriever mix) and Molly(Brussels Griffon), we have 3 cats: Edgar, Sam, and Kitty and 3 ferretts: Daisy, violet, and Petunia. We have a full house, but it is never boring or clean!!!! Ryan is a diesel mechanic for Geneva Rock and I work at UVRMC as a PCA and I go to nursing school.
