About Me

 This blog will chronicle my journey through nursing school, motherhood, and life in general. I reserve the right to fly off topic, go on tangents, and post random bits of unrelated but fascinating (at least to me) mind drivel.

Beginning in the Middle….

The second day of orientation to nursing school, I discovered that I did not have the stomach flu as I had most fervently hoped, but was pregnant. This did not endear me to the director who, I got the impression, thought I did it on purpose! I struggled through the first semester, got half way through the second and finally gave up when I couldn’t fit into my largest scrubs. My original classmates are now three or four classes ahead of me and I find teething rings in my labcoat pockets at least once a week.

This is my third child, a boy, and he’s nine months old now. My thirteen and ten year old daughters and my husband are the reason I was able to come back to nursing school because they have been holding down the fort without much help from me!

The End of the Beginning….

I have been a CNA for about ten years, am a massage therapist and an herbalist which makes an interesting topic in pharmacology, as I discovered last semester. I have travelled all over the states in a van, had babies in a cattle tank, and made semi-precious stone jewelry to sell at renaissance festivals. I have had waist length hair, dreads, and been bald. I know how to start a fire in a downpour, find fresh greens in the snow, build an outdoor kitchen with an oven, and how to live on ten dollars a week. I am 32 years old and in my second year of nursing school because I lived life as hard as I could before deciding on what I wanted to be when “I grew up”.

    For a second, in the first picture, I thought the older girl was holding a doll. That isn’t a doll. That’s a human child. Congratulations on your human children.

    Thank you, Warren, the little alien turned out to be a regular baby after all…as you can see in the last picture! He definately had an other worldly look at first:)
