Oct 19, '07I'm taking my exam next Saturday and the wait is driving me nuts!! My test is scheduled for 8am saturday so can i get my results online by monday morning or do sat/sun not count in the 48 hrs? My plan once I take the test is to drink, I think mimosas with brunch is a good start, then wings and beer at my favorite bar!! Who knows from there!!
Oct 23, '07after taking my exam last october 2 i just pray and pray and enjoy the things that i miss the most while reviewing sch as playing basketball, surfing the internet and hangng out late in the evening... I'm still waitng for my result.. i hope and pray that i pass!

Nov 8, '07My sister and I engaged in some serious retail therapy; an approach I heartily recommend .
Nov 12, '07I took a 7 day cruise after PN Clex. By the time I got back I had my results. There is nothing like being surrounded by hot bodied shirtless men with accents to make you forget everything. (I was single then )

Jun 27, '08Thousands of sit-ups to lose the muffin top I acquired in nursing school
watch my son's baseball game (yelling "way to wheel, way to wheel!" and " Good eye-good eye" can be very therapeutic)
talk to my kids
talk to my husband
vow not to tell my mom how I really feel again and scare her to death-(she's going to church to pray for me now)
come up with a game plan if "the dreaded" happens-its not the end just an unexpected detour
Buy myself some flowers that smell good-like peonies.
