I'm still alive, although maybe a little less shiny...

'cuz nursing school can be kind of a bitch. Yes, nursing school. A new incarntion for the musicgeek. Hopefully, by May of next year, I'll have an RN behind my name and can be takin' care of some business for all of you infirm out there.

I'm at the tail end of my first year of "nothing but nursing classes". One more year to go. The weeding out process is pretty continuous at my school. You pretty much have a brand new opportunity to crash and burn every 8 weeks when you get to this point. So far, I've made it through all the basic nursing and my first med/surg rotation. I'm in OB now, and I love, LOVE, LOVE it!!! Birthin' babies, and taking care of mommies and babies while they get to know one another is such a privilege. I also have the very best teacher possible, and that's just the icing on the cake that is OB.

On other fronts:

-kids are growing like crazy
-new black cat in the house named Jinx
-husband still putting up with me
-even in this economy, we're still sleeping indoors and eating regularly
-my man got elected president

There ya go. You're all caught up.
