I can't believe it, in fact it hasn't really hit me, but I'm now a licensed RN! I'm sure it will hit me once I get a job and start to work, but for now it seems like a dream. One of those things that you never thought would actually happen. Something you always wanted to do and never thought would come! But it has come, it's weird and exciting all at the same time. I actually accomplished something. Something that has taken a long time is now done! I never have to test for a license of this nature ever again! It's crazy!

Thank you so much for all of you who stood by my side and helped me through this. Especially my family. My family is the most incredible family in the world. They stood by my mood swings from lack of sleep and stress over exams. My incredible family who took care of my boys without ever complaining. I love you all so much! There aren't enough "Thank yous" I could ever say that would make up for all your sacrifices. But THANK YOU! You are all the best! I never could have done this without you.

It's amazing that it's 2012. I feel like I just left for school in 2010! I can't tell you how glad I am that that part of my life is over! Now all I have to do is take my boards exam!
We have been really busy here. I decided to go through the boys toy room and get rid of things they no longer play with and make room for all the new things they got for Christmas. This job ended up being bigger than I imagined it would be!
While I was doing the toy room, Doug decided to keep Drew occupied by teaching him how to play chess. If anyone knows my husband, he really likes chess. He has quite a few chess boards and takes every opportunity to play. For Christmas this year, I found a chess board and pieces that I couldn't pass up...they are GIANT!
Drew was having a great time learning and Doug was having a great time teaching him.
I wish all of you a healthy and happy new year! Go 2012!
