not that there's not plenty of stuff i could be doing, but it's all big projects and stuff i didn't feel like starting without being able to finish. (deep clean laundry room, deep clean kitchen cabinets, deep clean nursery.)
(i may be nesting just a little. or turning into my mother.)
sooo. onto different, more exciting things. whoop whoop.
I GOT ACCEPTED TO NURSING SCHOOL!!!!
yes, it's just the practical nursing program here at RMCC, but it's a BIG step forward for stephen and me. (a BIG step AWAY from walmart. this in in itself is muy importante.)
it's a step towards making other things possible -- being able to have a good paying job while stephen finishes his teaching degree, firstly.
it's going to tough, i KNOW. classes are supposed to start, like, 5 days after my due date. yikes, right? but it's one of those gotta-do-it-now things that i just can't put off.
the plan: leave walmart at the end of july, be induced at 38 weeks, have 3 weeks before classes start to spend with my precious new baby, then be a full-time nursing student for 11 months (minus one Christmas break and one spring break.)
and even though i know this is going to be one of the hardest things i have ever done, i am SO, SO, SO excited. i have wanted to be a nurse since i was in high school -- i was a nursing major for my first three semesters at henderson state university, before i switched my major to teaching and QUICKLY learned i did not want to do that for the rest of my life. and i know i'm taking the L-O-N-G way there, i will be an RN one day... eventually. this is just the best place for me to start, so that my classes and clinicals are in the same town as my newborn baby, you know...
(something else i want to do eventually is finish my bachelors in general studies from hsu -- something i'm about 12 hours away from completing. we'll see.)
