Thanks everybody! I am so excited - a little scared too!
I appreciate you all and these forums. My husband was like "good, I told you that you could do it." and then went back to doing what he was doing.
I wanted a big hug and a little bit of a happy celebration.
My 15yo daughter asked me what grade I got on my lecture final and I told her a 68 - she says sarcastically "wow, a 68%, thats something to be proud of." (she's a type A, pefectionist - straight A and nothing else is acceptable student, but still - it was very rude.) To me, that was something to be proud of considering all of the circumstances! :angryfire
So, I don't have a lot of support, and I guess maybe to someone who hasn't been through what I've been through this past semester along with having to succeed in school and all of that pressure wouldn't realize that I feel like I've actually accomplished something "big."
I don't know, I guess I expected more of a positive reaction from my family.
(Actually my 8yo daughter did jump up and down and scream in happiness for me, so thats something!)
Anyhow, y'all sure understand here! Thanks again.
Now, I get to go shopping! Shoes, stethescopes, uniforms (yuck - I think we have to wear that pepto bismal pink color BLECH!), PDA, supplies......FUN!
