I haven't had anything very interesting to write about. Things are pretty much the same around here. Although I have finally been spending much more time at home. The holiday season was a killer, & I felt like I was always either working or shopping. So being able to just play Wii & watch movies with DJ has been so awesome!
Like I said, not much to talk about. Just a few updates.
I submitted my applications to 2 different nursing schools in the area, one for an RN program & one for an LPN program. I have mixed feelings about the subject.
I really, really want to get my RN & be done with it, but that's a very intensive 3 year program. I'm a little worried about being away from DJ so much because he does depend on me for certain things - & that list will just keep on growing as time goes on.
On the other hand, the LPN program only takes a year & a half. The schedule is 3 days a week, so I could technically continue to work 2nd shift instead of make the switch to 3rd. However, being an LPN is not really what I want. LPN jobs are few & far between these days, so it will likely be difficult for me to find a job when I get out of school being that I'll have no experience - unless of course there's one available where I work now, but who knows if there will be.
I also have this nagging feeling that because I'm naturally bad in math (& didn't plan on a nursing career when I was in high school) that my math grades will hinder my acceptance to the RN school. That would seriously suck ass, because I know I can do the nursing job. It's not astrophysics or anything.
So now it's the waiting game. Great...
Onto the good news now:
- My very good friend/co-worker asked me to host her bridal shower! I'm so excited to do it. We're thinking a beach themed shower because she's having a beach themed summer wedding. If anyone has ideas for beachy decorations & party games, please send them my way.
- DJ & I have a meeting with our local bank in the next few weeks to try to finally get a mortgage. Have I ever told you the unorthodox circumstances to building our house? I don't think so. I'll have to do that, because it'll make our personal mortgage crisis make a lot more sense. Anyway, I think we're on the right track now!
- And finally - the tattoo is scheduled for Sunday night with I get home from work!! I'm excited & nervous - really, really nervous. I'm not sure why though. I'm not nervous about living with the tattoo, & I think it just may be the idea of it. But anyway, I'm mostly excited & I can't wait to get it done!
