Is There Anyone Out There???

My 13 year old!

Seamus as a baby...

It took me 4 attempts to log know it's been far too long!!

Life is going good for me. I have a few extra moments tonight so I thought I'd give the two people that still read this a quick update!

I am currently in the second semester of the LPN program....Hell Yeah!! The first semester was brutal and very time consuming, but I got through...and with flying colours. I was very impressed with my grades. At the end I did the practicum and was equally impressed by my evaluation that my instructor had for me!! Sometimes it seems surreal...that I'm actually doing this. There were times in the first practicum that I was questioning why I was doing this...and I can't go into details except they involved poop and gross smells! Alas, I managed to find some vicks that does wonders when placed in the nostrils...goodbye smells!! Hallelujah!!

We've only completed our first week of semester 2,but I'm loving it. I can't wait to learn our injections, wound care and I'm really enjoying Pharmacology!

The kids are doing awesome these days. All seem to be chugging along. Seamus is officially a teenager...can't believe that. Time flies by way too quickly. We've been spending a lot of time going for walks, and biking. It's been fun. I think the boys will be going to the East Koots for the summer...I still don't know how I'm going to handle this. I know it will be better for them to actually have a fun summer, rather than stay at home while I'm in school every day. This will be tough to have them away for so long!!

Scott has managed to dig up the gardens so we need to pick up some good plants/flowers for this year. I love spring/summer!!! I went for my first run the other day...and just about died. Oh well, I need to get back in shape. Otherwise this nursing job will be way too tough on the body!!

I don't have too much to report. My life revolves around school, kids and my darling husband. He is pretty special. He's taken over so much the past 3 months just to ensure my school life runs smoothly. He's the best!

Anyhow...pretty boring update!! Hope everyone is doing fine these days!!

Jenny! You blogged!

Glad to hear your family is doing well... can't believe how fast kids grow, huh?

I'm really thinking about going back to school as well (for a teaching degree). I went to see the admissions counselor last spring, and hummed and hawed and didn't register. I'm still humming and hawing, but you're inspiring me to get off my arse and just do it. I'll keep you posted. :)
