block III starts tomorrow.

i feel like i've had a good break.
i have enjoyed this family of mine.

it has rained all week.
the desert has soaked it up.
the cacti are fat. (isn't cacti plural for cactus?)
it smells good.
all has been revived.

i admit i have had a bad attitude about nursing school.
block II was rough on me.
and my peers.
really rough - as we won't be seeing many of them again.

i'm excited for a fresh start.
mmmm. fresh starts.
a new binder.
an unmarked syllabus.
new instructors.

block III: pediatrics, ob, and a little med/surg.
i'm excited to work with mothers.
and little ones.

for years E and i have prayed about our plan.
when i got into school we felt it was an answer.
we were so grateful.

i've decided that my bad attitude shows ingratitude.
and i don't want to seem ungrateful.

so i'm ready for my fresh start.
ready to be revived again.
to get fat on knowledge.

i'm on my way to becoming a nurse.
and from now on...
i promise to have more of a smile on my face about it.

I am so excited for you!!! You will be done before you know it!

This block will be the best one of them all! OB and peds are much more fun and interesting and being a mom and just had a baby, it will all come easy to you I'm sure! Smiling is good, helps the grumpy's go away, some advice I can take myself! :) Good luck!!

Well, said! Remembering to show gratitude for the answers I have received, though they may cause some "discomfort", is a great reminder about now. You are a rock my friend! Love you!

You're already halfway done aren't you? This next block sounds very interesting and enjoyable- it'll be over before you know it!

Can't wait to see you guys by the way!
