Week 3

Well, tomorrow marks the end of Week 3 for Semester 1 of the nursing program.
Week one was hectic and busy, although I was done by noon each day. The second week started the "regular' schedule, but we had a snow day and a delayed start the next so we didn't have a "full" week until this week.
Classes (2) are going ok. I already knew some of the girls in my class and am meeting new ones. We're a class of 23-24 women. Wide range of ages, backgrounds, family situations, etc.

I have class Tuesday-Friday, with every Monday off. I use that day to either catch up or get ahead with homework. Oh, and to run the errands I don't have time to do! Wednesdays I'm on campus until 4, Tuesdays until 3, Thursdays until noon and only until 11 on Fridays.

I'm excited for the upcoming weeks. We get to break out our really *cool* (cough, cough) blue nursing scrubs. We start clinicals mid-March and that is what I am most looking forward to.

Isaac is in daycare full time and it's been a bit of an adjustment for him. I think we're still figuring out schedules/time with mom and dad/weekends but it's getting better.

Sunday is our 7th wedding anniversary! WOW! It's hard to believe!

I've been oriented.

Well, nearly 2 months have passed since I've blogged.

*Had a major winter storm that closed schools and postponed my final presentation in Microbiology. Got a B.
*Had another storm right before Christmas, not allowing us to travel on Christmas Day. We stayed home and enjoyed our time together.
*Had my family over the day after Christmas for Christmas.
*Watched ISU win the bowl on New Year's Eve. (Did not stay up until Midnight that night though-too tired).
*Went to Orientation for the nursing program that I start TOMORROW! I'm excited and nervous.
*Currently dealing with Isaac's coughing/breathing issues. Friday night, I was up about 3 1/2 hours with him, took him to doc Saturday morning and was told to continue the nebulizer treatments. He slept better last night (about 8 hours before I heard him coughing, 6 hours for me!)
*Excited to go see The Lion King next Sunday with my mom and sister!
*Did I mention the cold snap that we've been experiencing? It's cold, but a warmup is on the way! OH, and we had more snow this week!

Brownies in the oven from my new cookbook. Can't wait to try them!
