Status Update

Wow, has it really almost been a year since my last post? What an interesting time in my life though! I feel like there are certain periods in my life where change is constant, and that I'm as pliable as the clay beneath a masters hands. I now understand the cost of uprooting two lives built together and how far the ripple extends. I've learned to respect and appreciate careers, but more importantly I appreciate the job I have today. Don't let any of that distract from the fact that no matter how many challenges I have had to overcome these past years, I count myself very very lucky.
So aren't you just dying to know what I've been up to?? Inquiring minds want to know, I'm sure...lol. So let me give you the spark-notes version of this last year.
In October...
I bugged it up at the Halloweeny celebrations!!
 Studied my buns off and worked on many school projects!
 Met this man. : )
 Had this beautiful beast stolen by *ahem* he who shall not be named, lol. Then had to by a Jetta...blah. I believe my Jetta is cursed, lol. 
In November......nothing too exciting happened. Just more of the same. 
But in DECEMBER!!!!
I graduated from nursing school as an LPN!!
 My dad flew all the way across the north American continent, stayed less than twelve hours....just to be there for my graduation! I love this guy. : )
In January I took my nursing boards...and passed!! I also celebrated my 26th birthday. One year older and wiser too! Things were looking up, finally. I started feeling stronger and more in control of my life...and that's where I'm going to leave off today, because work is calling.
