I wish I could post a couple of pictures! We have some great outside pictures from the past couple of weeks. Our upstairs computer (the one with the pictures on it...) is down for the moment, though.

Well, first thing's first: I didn't get into the Graduate Entry program. Boo. So, my plans have changed a bit. The original thought was that I would do the MSN (masters of science in nursing) and then do the CNM (certified nurse midwife) at either U of M (go blue...) or Case Western when the time came. Then, I went to plan B, which involves taking a year to get a couple of required classes under my belt at Owens, then transferring to Mercy, where they do not have a three year waiting list. (!) I would get my ADN (associates degree in nursing), then my BSN elsewhere (bachelors), then the MSN somewhere, and then my CNM at one of the aforementioned schools. Then, I went to see my midwife today. She said, oh goodness no! Get my ADN, and get the CNM & MSN through distance learning all at one time, and not at U of M or Case! She said the graduate entry program wouldn't be good for me professionally OR philosophically. I don't need to get a BSN since I already have my bachelors degree. Rock on! She was really encouraging and made me feel like it was doable, even by little ol' me. So, I guess that's my revised plan. (No, I don't expect that you caught it all. I'm rambling like mad.)

So, onward toward my nursing degree, then toward my nurse-midwifery certification.

There's a new coffee shop at Levis that is locally owned, awesome, and taking out Starbucks one cup at a time. So, next time you're around there, be sure to visit The Flying Bean. It's very hip, they have entertainment on Fridays, the owners and baristas are great - what are you waiting for?! You need a caffeine fix! Hie thee to The Flying Bean! (It's over by Bartz-Viviano and Woodard Photographic, a little off the main drag.)

I still have an A in my anatomy class. I never thought I could get an A in science... Sweet. I do, however, have four tests and one quiz in the next month, so the real indication is what I say I have on May 7th.

We had some people over for dinner yesterday. It was marvelous. No one, however, enjoyed my very favorite soup, which I was sad about. If you come over sometime, I'll make it for you, and you be the judge. (Sweet Potato - Butternut Squash - Apple. Oh. My. Goodness.)

Joel is teething pretty hard right now. My poor babe. At least the end is in sight.

Off to celebrate that my future is still bright!

Congrats on the positive plans. I think I mentioned before that I also make a squash/apple soup, which I agree is totally delicious!

The soup sounds wonderful!

I think I may have to check out this new coffee shop. I wonder if they have free WiFi...
