What is wrong with me?

Is it just me?  Why do I seem to thrive on stress?  It's like I go looking for it.  Really.  Life is moving along just fine, and then I get some crazy idea and BAM!  Right in the kisser!

For those of you who haven't caught on...with the Facebook updates and Twitter rants about the various anatomical and physiological terms I am trying to stuff into my brain...much like I do on a Friday night trying to stuff myself back into my old jeans.........I am going back to school.

I have officially and certifiably lost my mind.  And to prove it, instead of STUDYING, I'm blogging.  Oh yeah, I'm the model student.  Sigh.

Right now, I am in the last week of a summer online class which is one of three pre-requisites for APPLICATION to nursing school.  Anatomy and Physiology I & II, and Microbiology.  My hope, is to be accepted into The University of Tennessee Health & Science Masters in Nursing program.  A two-year program to earn my masters and be certified as a Clinical Nurse Leader.  MSN-CNL program.

That's the plan.  I have NO idea how hard it will be to get into the program.  But, I've heard it is pretty competitive.  And, once I fool them all into letting me in, it will be full-time plus clinical work for two straight years including summers, beginning next June.  Or will it?  That is the question.  Should I apply this year and do school BEFORE Peanut is in school?  Or, wait until she starts Kindergarten.

Ugh.  The question of the century.  On one hand, I don't want to miss her "baby years."  Oh my heart.  On the other hand, I don't want to be gone when she runs in from her first day at Kindergarten to tell me all she did that day.  Ugh.  UGHHHHHH!!!!!!

Don't even get me started on the Morgan and Bradyn part of this.  Morgan will start college in TWO YEARS!  And, sweet little Bradyn will be in highschool!

So, that's what's going on with me right now.  I have one week left to this A&P I class, then three weeks off, then another semester of A&P II.  Microbiology in the Spring.  What to do?  What to do?

Thank God for the world-wide-web!  Free therapy!  Just get a blog.  :)

  1. I loved Anatomy & Physiology but Microbiology and I never got along. Wish I could give you some sound advice on starting immediately or waiting but I have none. Maybe make you a list of pros and cons and give yourself a few days with that list to really think about it. Keegan is starting PreK next week (he's first born) and I'm a nostalgic mess. How did I get here? We're meeting his teacher tonight and I can't help but to think of the day he was born and wonder where those 4 1/2 years went. {SIGH} Best of luck to you with EVERYTHING!
