My school books have arrived! 10 books costing over 500 dollars! How does anyone afford to go to school these days? I am anxious to get back to studying and like the fact that so much of nursing is hands on. I still don’t know if my clinicals will be on Wednesday or Thursday so I can’t tell work what hours I have available yet. Speaking of work, there are still a lot of things that I don’t know how to do there and haven’t been trained on. I will probably learn everything just when I need to drop my hours! I am really behind in my Christmas shopping and I have so many projects that I would like to finish before school starts. I must admit I feel a little overwhelmed, but doesn’t everyone this time of year. If you are reading this and your are a friend of mine… your Christmas card may be late!
