I went from like a zillion posts a day to none for weeks. What happened? Well, my kids are a lot older now for one thing. Nitara just started K this year and Abi's in 3rd grade, soon to be nine! I saw a 4 month old today and she smiled her big gummy smile at me and it was sooo sweet! I remember when my girls were that age and it sure doesn't seem like that long ago!

So what happened to me? I'm in nursing school! My dream is coming true finally! I'm soooo busy but loving every minute of it, even the stress and lack of sleep. Motherhood has prepared me for both of those. LOL! Anyway, I just wanted to say hi. I miss you guys. You are what has gotten me past some really hard times and given me the courage to live my dream.

Here's a pic of me taken last week-- we got to wear our scrubs for the first time.

I remember when Nitara was that age! And it couldn't have possibly been 5 years ago. Our kids are close in age, so I remember your posts.

Congratulations on nursing school!

Congratulations! You look great.

Do your scrubs say "Maricopa" on them? Maricopa has a fantastic trauma program. (I'm a nurse; I have friends who relocated to work there.) Have fun!!!!!! Nursing school can be tough -- take care of yourself!

It must have felt so wonderful to officially wear your scrubs. So great to see your update--we miss you, too I'm so happy to see you're in nursing school and working toward your dream. Don't be a stranger

I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!

We definitely miss you here! Your name has come up several times on the SN boards, and one member has a daughter just diagnosed with EE, and when you didn't respond, I figured you were really busy with school. Congrats on the new scrubs!

It's nice to see all of you again! Thanks for sharing my joy with me. I just had "date night" by giving my dh a head to to assessment for a practical that's coming up. That's what our life is like now. hee hee!

I'm off to hunt some more MDC friends to see if they are still on here or have taken a hiatus like I have. I hope to spend more time here catching up on my winter break. Oh, and I have "witnessed" to some of my nursing students about circumcision and I think I really made them aware that there are alternatives to circing and that boys have rights over their personal parts. I know I didn't convince them all, but at least I made them think about it for when they have kids (I'm one of the senior members of the class).
