I thought I would share some very exciting news!!! Hold on a minute while I whoop and jump and holler!!! (Yes, quiet Ang can do that) I won't keep you in suspense anymore!! So.... I PASSED MY BOARDS!!!! Yea, I know several of you have been asking when I was taking them. And my famous response was.."oh you know...they're coming" =). Well actually, yes I did take them on Wednesday morning, and after I was through with them, I had the unbearable gut feeling that - oh know I failed. I have never been so sick to my stomach in my entire life. The moments and hours afterwards waiting for the results were VERY stressful. Thoughts of eating, or sleeping were out of the question. In fact... I still haven't been to sleep yet today and it is officially 1:35pm the next day.

Lets see, if I had to write a nurses' note on myself, I'd have to say.... Patients condition finally stable. She states" I've had information overload, tremors throughout all extremities, diaphoresis and nauseous spells. I can't eat, sleep, and l've had loss of concentration." (subjective data =) ) Patient re-hydrated. Given some candy (yum) and cheesecake. Told that she passed her nursing boards. Patients condition did a 360. She is currently jumping up and down, whooping, and is seen with a rather large grin on her face. Need MD to sign for discharge and followup for celebration.

God truly is wonderful and good!! I guess with all my worrying and fretting, I failed to fully trust God with my test. I thank Him for showing me that I still matter to Him - regardless of what I go through. If He has called me somewhere, He will provide the way for me to get there.
I also praise Him for sending me those few people who have showed me support, encouragement, and have believed in my every step of the way. (Thanks to you guys)

Okay, well did someone say vacation??? I am OFFICIaLLY on break. Officially FREE.. Officially on my way to moving on with my life. Yes!!!!!!

ANNNNDD, it's Christmas time!!! =)

Ahhh.. I am officially home. After an extreemly long night driving, Ash and I have made it. We weren't planning on coming home until Saturday morning, but after hearing some long speeches of "wisdom" about getting ahead of the snow, we left eleven Friday night. Ha...still, I don't think some people were too thrilled about having their kids drive through the night. was fun.

Now that classes are over for the semester, I will enjoy every minute of freedom. Yup! I'm going skiing!!! Okay..maybe I'll practice guitar a bit (Unc), but believe me, I don't want to be tied up in another dungeon- at least for the next two weeks.

Anyway, Ash came out to visit me in Cinci, and we went to Festival of lights, as well as a few other things ;) (cream cheese, and cheese steak =) ) Awh, I have missed my little bobbit. But, I guess there is a time to grow up and move away from the nest sometime.

Meredith will be coming up in about two weeks to meet the ol' fam. Eeks.. yikes...crazy?? LOL.. Actually, I am beginning to think that the more I see, he's just as crazy as the rest of them. Haha. Anyone up for New Years in Lake Placid????? Yuppers!! I definately can't wait to see the new little Mooselette!! I might even bring her some ' cocunut creamer' to flavor her wonderful rich-coffee... hehe... Not sure if her Mommy would appreciate that though...

Well.. I shall crash for tonight. It's good to be home. It's good to hear the wind howling right outside my window, and actually see snow again. =)

God truly creates some beautiful sceneries!!

It's Christmas!!! And I could not go without having a tree of my very own out here. So, I put together an "Ange tree". I thought about sleeping under my tree for the very first night, but then realized that I probably could not fit on top of the fridge very comfortably. Ha...Ha
So, instead I have moved my bed pretty close to it, and have managed to glance at it from time to time if my eyes open up during the night. =)
Two more weeks to go and AHHHHHHHHhh It'll be over out here for the semester. Then I get to come home!!! How exciting is that? Home..the thought of banana muffins when I wake up, decorating of sugar cookies around the table, rumpie, and SNOW!!! (yea, they don't believe in snow out's sad) Like I said.... only a few more days!!!! So, I am definately counting down.....
That's about it for now!!!!! Thank you to all who contributed to the package of goodies to get me through the last of my weeks here. Thank you!!!
I can't wait to see some of you in less than a week!!!!! Bring it on!!! Yea!
