A day late and a dollar short

Well I am one day late to remind everyone about buddy check 9 day, yesterday. I hope that everyone remembers to do their monthly self breast exam and know your body so month to month you will spot any changes. Remember early detection is K-E-Y!

Being out of work already sucks, but I have still kept busy running the kids around and keeping up with the house. At least I feel like I have enough time to get those things done now. Hopefully my work will have enough work to bring me back at least for part of my hours by the end of the month, otherwise I will be looking for other work.

I have also kept busy this last week looking into nursing school more. I registered for school at the local community college but not sure that I will actually be taking a class this semester or not. Jon and I have talked a lot about which direction to go as far as just a 2 year nursing program or trying to get my BSN (bachelors of science in nursing) from UNC. I am still not sure what direction I will end up going since all the 2 year nursing schools have such a long wait list. Either way I have a long road ahead, but excited the more information I get about it.

Olivia is a girl scout this year and they did a kick off for the cookie sales last night at a local pool with all the girl scouts in town. She had a blast swimming with her friends. Hopefully she will enjoy selling cookies and if anyone is interested in buying some let me know and we will come by.

Last night I was laying in bed doing my usual stressing-out-about-everything-that-came-to-my-mind instead of sleeping. I just cannot turn my brain off, especially when I am stressed out about anything (not having a job). So laying in bed and I heard the door bell ring at 12:40am. WHAT?!? Of course I am freaking out waking up Jon and convincing him I just heard the door bell and to get out of bed to answer it. So we both got dressed and went to the door to find a policy officer. Great........what now?!? Apparently some punk drove down the street in our neighborhood and bashed in windows of all the cars in the street. Of course both of us were like, "which car", since we park both of the cars we have outside. The officer said the white pick up windshield. Jon immediately said "SWEET!" The officer laughed and said that is the first reaction like that I have had. Since we just forked out a bunch of money to fix my back window I was holding my breath that it wasn't that one again. Not that it was a good thing that it was the truck, but at least is was a work truck and we don't have to pay to get it fixed. The good thing is that a guy at the end of the street apparently heard all this happening and jumped in his car and chased the punk down so they arrested the jerk for it. It was kinda scary though getting pulled out of bed by the doorbell, it is never a good thing at 1 in the morning.

That's our excitement for today. Hopefully next week will be really boring. I can't handle anymore stress. My sister Toni is coming with her son Jack this next week. I am excited to be able to have some time to hang out and visit with her.

As a retired nurse myself, I would suggest that you get some of your preliminary classes out of the way while waiting to get into the program. It sure made it easier for me with two little boys at home. anatomy, microbiology, pharmacology can be really tough while taking a full load of nursing classes.
I know you will make a great choice. If you are looking toward management...head nurse, supervisor type positions its best to go for the degree program..if you are looking toward patient care the two year program is great. It just depends where you are headed.
Big hugs and lots of luck.
