This has been a long 16 weeks! When I decided to go back to school - and actually finish this time, I thought I was going to earn an associates degree in medical assisting. That was the plan. Two of the required classes are in the nursing department. Well, a couple of my teachers and the college counselor mentored me right into the prerequisites for the nursing program. I’ve completely changed my focus, re tooled my class schedule and with any luck I’ll be an RN in a couple of years. I’ve also taken a job in the campus health center.  I’ll be assisting the head of the center where I’ll train to work with patients and give injections.  Our Nursing program is very competitive so this job will give me points when I’m able to apply.

I’ve really missed my FAB40 friends! I’m hoping to be able to work plenty of online time into my schedule in the future. This semester just threw me for a loop. I didn’t know what to expect and it had been a long time since I honed my study habits.

Let me know what you’ve been up to. Let me know what I’ve missed! Just know that you all were not far from my thoughts and prayers. I checked in from time to time as I could but I was pretty hit and miss over here.  

Hugs to all!!
Cynthia

    • Cynthia,
      I have been thinking about you and here you are!  It’s wonderful that you are going to be a nurse- you are a bright and caring person and I see a great career ahead of you!

      Rachel and I are okay, but not great. She was sick last week and is still feeling tired.  

      We fostered 3 feral kittens starting last month.  We kept one, a second was adopted, and the third, Joey, is sitting in the “slammer“- a cage in Petsmart for a week during one of their adoption campaigns. We tried to visit him today and the manager wouldn’t take him out of the cage.  He saw us and got all meowy and frantic trying to get to us and it tore Rachel up. Also she really wanted to be able to screen potential adopters. We were told we could do this, but then our cat liason “changed her mind“. We get him back Friday night if he doesn’t get adopted this week.  It would be hard for me to handle losing him twice, but I do really miss him. The one that got adopted is tiny, fluffy, and gray.  The one that didn’t is bigger, short-haired, and black.  The cat rescue service tells us people don’t like to adopt black cats.  (Joey’s much smarter and more playful than the gray one.)(People can be such jerks sometimes.)I’m going to try to post a photo.

      My temp job ended so I am job hunting again.  This time we are open to leaving San Diego.  I am also going to study to get my Quality Auditor Certification. You won’t be the only student, but I’ll just have the one subject. I think that will help career-wise.

      I hope you come to Southern California soon!

      Love,
      Anne

    • Well of course I remember you! I also missed you!!!!! I figured if I popped in on you at FB and here and left a hello you would know we didn’t forget you. I’m glad it’s all working out. I think you will be Nurse FABULOUS!!!!

      As for me... family, work, life just trying to do it all right and enjoy it in the process!

      I have got to get back on the weight/health band wagon and get things moving again.

      Going back to school at our age isn’t exactly easy, but I know that you will not only get all of the degrees that you aim for but will get the job you want in the future.

      I’m sooo proud of you.

      Big hugs,
      Yana
