Well, not for me, as I have some big phobias I would have to overcome to enjoy a cruise. Among my big phobias are the wide open ocean, linen chutes (that's a weird one I know, but I'm always afraid I'll have some overwhelming urge to sit on the edge of the linen chute and I'll fall in), spiders, and flying. What really sucks about that last one is that my husband is an aircraft mechanic and we (our whole family) can fly anywhere in the world for free, but I am just too frightened to do it. I mean there would have to be like conscious sedation or something for the entire flight.... There are some places I would like to see someday, like Ireland and Italy, and I guess since you can't drive there I'm going to need to overcome that fear.Finding a place to live in Maryland, will move there the second week of August. Plan to work ICU the first two weeks of July. My husband is giving my B-day, X-mass, congratulation present ahead of time "Cruise in Europe". the last two weeks of July, and then August is left to get myself organize and ready for my first semester. We have no children and haven't taken any formal vacation in two years. This vacation is well deserved.
Have fun on your trip! It sounds like a blast.

I am just graduating and I am EXHAUSTED! Seriously, you need to relax, take vitamins and to enjoys your family. You are about to enter a zone where you will no longer be around for 24 months. When you have a day off it is for studying or sleeping.

Will work some more overtime to bank some cash and take some of the workload off the wife. Will take the 2 weeks off prior and spend some time with the kids and a short vacation with my spouse. Not planning on studying much of anything as I am more than confident they will provide me everything I will need. Maybe a little reading at work, review gas laws, and some physiology of the nervous system. My suggestion would be to take it easy and enjoy some quiet time as it is going to end shortly! I am just so thankful that Webster is all science based and there is no "nursing" classes. Dont think i could handle another nursing theory class if I had to. lol
GOOD LUCK to all
