When I graduated from college with my nursing degree in 2003, my college professors had my classmates and I write out our five year plan. Mine was roughly as follows: "I am going to work in cardiology for a year, and then move to work in the ER. I plan to get my master's degree and teach. I will do disaster relief, and eventually work toward my doctorate, do research, and get published." What I was NOT going to do was ever quit working as a nurse, and certainly not become a stay-at-home mother. I pretty much thought that was a cop out for those who couldn't do anything else.
Well, I guess I can admit when I am wrong, because here I am seven years later, burnt out on nursing (although I am on a disaster relief team that I love and plan to stay involved with!) and loving being a stay-at-home mom to my almost-6 month old, Sophia. I watched my husband John complete three years of grad school before going to work as a PT this summer, and have decided from seeing him go thru it that I never will. At least not for anything related to the medical field!
At any rate, this blog is going to be a mishmash of my thoughts, decorating projects I do around the house, updates on the cutest baby ever, and whatever else I think of. Here's to doing things we swore we never would!
