8 wks to go!

The last 2 wks have been sooo insane with exams, concept maps, and quizzes. Part of me just wants to goof off, but after next week, it will be another insane 2 wks, so I know I SHOULD plan ahead and start my next map. I actually gathered map "stuff" on my last shift. But I'm also feeling a bit stressed because we are doing the cardiac unit. And if you've followed my blog, or FB, you'll know that this is my BIGGEST weakness. So...I am trying to be good and keep studying, starting my map early. It's due in 2 wks, but the wknd I usually do the map, I will ALSO be studying for the dang cardiac exam. So, if you are a pray-er, please do! I have got to stay disciplined, which is really not my strength. But give it a try, I will! (oooh i'm yoda)

Ooooooooooooooooooh, and here's a MAJOR shout out to Hope2bRN, who sent me her NCLEX and cardiac study books! She is a total Saint. Here's a picture of her.

I will be using them TODAY.

On a COMPLETELY different note, it was my baby's birthday yesterday. My boy turned 14! If you visit FB, I have a whole album of him in his honor, but I'll put a few here, and a few notes, so you can get to know him a little.

The boy, LOVES St. Patty's Day. It is his second favorite holiday. We do it up big here at our house. Except the corned beef, we can't stand it.
He LOVES art, and wants to be an artist, go to art school. Here he is with one of his absolute faves, Feininger. Really cool art.
The boy LOVES sugar. Not just candy, but sugar. Powdered sugar, syrup, and anything in it's purest form. Frightening ain't it?
And he loves to travel with us, see new places. (Much more so than our other kids who complains whenever we mention going anywhere! hmph! : O )
That's it for now. I have procrastinated long enough, and really should be getting to my books. Have a lovely wknd.

I didn't wish him a happy bday y'day on FB, so please give him a belated happy bday from me!

And maybe if you are wanting to ditch some NCLEX books and such next year around this time you might want to send them this way...hint, hint....

Oh, good luck with the cardiac stuff! We just did congenital heart defects, but don't get into adult cardiac till next quarter. I'm a little nervous about it but I've always wanted to get good at reading EKG strips. Have a great and productive weekend!
Oh, your boy reminds me of mine, handsome, artistic and a big sugar hound!
