Finals Ate My Brain


Unable to rub words together to form sentences: it's finals time. And what happens in the StudentNurse household at the same time as 2/3rds of the finals weeks at Nursing School U? (No, gnashing of teeth and letting the house get to a disaster of CPS-taking-away-the-kids proportion happens EVERY finals week). Yes. One of the kids has a birthday. And, remember when they were three and you could get away with baking one cake? Now there's the school cupcakes and the family party ("Hey Bumble bee, howzabout a make-your-own-sundae bar for the family party?": Phew, that worked!) and the friend party. So, add the house already a disaster and a couple of baking prjects and now the house is a sticky disaster. And that's just the thing about this place: the fun never stops! We're sticky, but we have cupcakes lingering around. There's ice cream in the freezer and a doll wrapped in pink paper hiding in the laundry room. So it's a mess and papers are here and there and books are this way and that and dishes are under and over and in between...There's only so much paper, so many dishes and so many books available left to add to the mess, right? It can only get as bad as it can get because there's a limit to the materials here. (All right that's a serious stretch, but...) And one of my finals was canceled because of glitches with the school's networking system! It's a holiday!

Oh, did I mention that I have a preceptorship in L and D at the hospital I wanted? Woo hoo!

Thanks for the great post, I started my career in nursing after finishing a associate degree in nursing from associate degree nursing schools

Lucky for you that, unlike greasy rags, sugar-encrusted items are unlikely to spontaneously combust.

Yay on L&D!
