    I just moved from Maine back to New York, so I'm having a lot of fun with boxes and cleaning! I'm spending a lot of time with my son before school starts for both of us, and reading Echo Heron's books. School starts for me on 9/2.

    Worked, started jogging again, reading, got back into church (since i now have Sunday mornings off).

    Had this WILD idea that i might actually, you know, meet some more people and actually have at least one or two dates, to remind myself what a social life was.

    BOY WHAT WAS I THINKING!!!!! :chuckle

    I've actually had off all summer which has been great. But, I Cannot wait to do something besides be car-mom, housekeeper, accountant, etc.

    This may sound crazy but MY NURSING TEXTSBOOKS are starting to look like pleasure reading to me.

    Book wise-some fun medical thrillers are written by Robin Cook. He's rad. Haha. I am getting ready for a nine day trip to Florida to visit my Fam and do Disney/Sea World and the beach. Fun stuff. I'm trying to get my house in order too. Good luck to you! Amy

    Other than picking up as much OT as I can at the hospital b4 I go part time when school starts, I have decided to take the next few weeks to make myself a study haven.

    I have been trying to make a study area for myself that is comfortable, practical, and enjoyable. I have my computer desk all set up and I purchased one of those large corkboards from Wal-Mart so that I can pin everything on it and always have it in plain sight. I have also been thinking about purchasing some classical music CD's to play while I'm studying. I've never tried this before, but it can't hurt. I plan on doing most of my studying at the library, but I think if I have a nice area set up, that it will encourage me even more.

    As for books, I took the suggestion of many on this board to read Echo Heron's Intesive Care. It was the most wonderful book, and got me soo pumped up for school. I read it in 3 days, and laughed, cried, and just plain loved it. If any of you haven't read it yet please do, I promise you will love it. Good luck everyone.

    I have some of my books and I am doing some perusing. Each day I try to read a little more in either my fundamentals, assessment or pharmacology book.
    I have also been going through med term "made incredibly easy" and dosage calcs "made incredibly easy". I have been so anxious to start Sept 2 that it seems I am useless for anything else! I want to get some work done around the house... well, maybe in 24 months!

    HI: I am enjoying reading what everyone did all summer. I have been done with summer session since July 10th, I have painted a bedroom, made a quilt (!), some clothes for school, and about to start painting a bathroom. I wished I would have gotten a summer job. I am bored! O, I am surely reviewing my math and nursing textbook. Next summer, hope I am working (as a nurse).
