All. Done.

Yay!! Today was my last day of general nursing orientation!!! Getting up at 5am each day was really kicking my butt! I got home at 4pm yesterday and was seriously considering going to bed then! Of course, I wasn't able to, but I hopped in as soon as I got the kiddos tucked in! I didn't even make it through the first 10 minutes of Deadliest Catch! I tried, but no luck! Thank goodness Discovery and Bravo rerun their shows constantly!! I've got to catch up on Sheer Genius from last week too, I couldn't stay awake for that! Anywhoo . . .

I got my results back for that horrible 6 hour skills assessment scenario test and I did very well! It stated that I needed minimal orientation! What a relief! I challenged the arrhythmia course today too and passed that! Go me!! Not too bad for being out for 5 1/2 years! I've got one certification course to get through yet, in September, since that expired 5 years ago. Then, I should be good!

We got some yummy calzone, pizza and calamari for supper tonight as a little "yay, mommy is done orientation" thing. We all went for a bike ride down to the lake this evening too. It's so nice to have family time again!!

Project Runway starts again tonight!! Woohoo!!! Can't wait!!!

I'll leave you with this layout. I swapped pictures with my buddy, Tracy, for last month's issue of Scrapbook News and Review. This is her daughter, Frannie!


Have a great rest of the week!
