Pencils, Books, Professors....OH MY!!!!!! (and another shoutout)

So big news here. I haven't posted this on my blog yet..well I have attempted to many times, and have multiple "drafts" saved up, but I just decided to skip trying to make some "life changing, perfect diction, miracle" post, and just post my darn news.

I'm going back to school. Yup. I have been blessed with the opportunity to finish up my nursing degree and you can bet your pretty panties that I am going to JUMP ON THIS. After some discussion and evaluating, my husband and I decided it was time. It's now or never, and I have chosen to make now, my forever.

I have always- ALWAYS wanted to be a nurse. For this reason or for that reason I never was able to complete the degree, until now. I haven't been this excited in a VERY long time. Well, our wedding day, October 11th brought the most excitement in my life, but this is in my top 4 or 5 =) Sometimes you just need to stop trying to control you every move in life. You need to realize God is the steering wheel, and not the spare tire. After 2 layoffs in 4 months, it was time for me to stop and take a gooood, long look at the "why". Why is this happening?? Is there something He is trying to tell me. To tell us??? So Rob and I, together, made the decision for me to go back to school.

I'm watching a little 4 month old during the day until about 4:00, and then I will be in class from 5:30-9:00 PM. If all goes smoothly, I could/should be in nursing school in the Fall. I am so very excited, I wish I could convey!

I would ask for a small prayer request. If you could just pray for me. That I will embrace this opportunity. Pray for Rob as he has to sacrifice many things as well, to make this opportunity possible for me. Pray for us as we try and adjust to a new lifestyle and that we will be patient with each other, and know that this is a wonderful blessing for our future!

Good Luck with school. I totally get the now or never motivation. I am working on my Masters degree (only 3 classes left) because I want to get it out of the way before "real life" (kids etc.) begins. You definitely doing it for the right reason!

I love McMama too! I love how she posts and then tweets so we are never left wondering what she's up to :o)
