    30-yr old happily married mom of 3 rugrats (9, 7 and 6 mos.)...pre-reqs done, took time off to have a baby and ready to go back in January to start clinicals in a 2-yr nursing program. Took me a while to figure out what I wanted to be "when I grew up."

    i'm ..ugh...angie. :d i am married to a sailor, so that makes me single pretty much. i have a 10 y/o boy and a 7 y/o boy. they keep me straight and motivated, they just don't know it! i am in the 1st of a 4 semester adn/rn program. you will no longer see my long posts because the tyrants @ my school are demanding that i actually read. i will check in on y'all to be sure that stephany keeps her sanity and remains the sweet lady i know she is. :d take care and good luck!
