As a child, I LOVED rollercoasters! Riding the Comet at Hershey Park was certainly the highlight of many summers. Now, in an adult body, my stomach rebels...but the light in my children's eyes inspires.

So I've been on a personal rollercoaster....I decided to work on my Bachelor's in Psychology while simultaneously throwing down pre-reqs for a nursing program....and lo and behold...the advisor called and said that there WAS a place for me in Surg Tech. Incredulous. I had already dried my tears over that one and set off with new co-ordinates. There was a new game in town. I had a decision to make....and I hope I have no regrets. Sucking in air, I told the advisor that I was going for a RN. Case closed. It's that scream on the way down....the one where you're scared silly and laughing hysterically at the same time.

All I've got to say is "You go, girl!"

FINALLY you've surfaced!! I didn't think you'd ever post ;) RN sounds quite wonderful, Maria. Am so happy that you took the bull by the horns. I'll hang on with you! The journey continues and that makes me smile, even if we can't see ahead, we can rejoice for the journey!! Love to you and the whole fambily!
