I am sorry that I haven’t made a new post since Thursday. When I started this blog, my goal was to post at least once everyday. I am still going to try to do this, but unfortunately this weekend wasn’t quite what I had hoped for.
At the end of my last post I expressed my excitement and anxiety about receiving my letter to find out if I made it into nursing school. Well, Friday morning my husband and I arrived at our other home, and the first thing I did was go to the mailbox. As soon as I opened the mailbox…I knew. All the students who were accepted into the program were receiving large envelopes.
When Life Gives You Lemons: Mine was a small envelope.
So, what could I do? The only thing I wanted to do was curl up and cry. And I did…for quite some time. My husband gave me some alone time, and when he knew I was ready he came and talked with me about it. He is so supportive…I can’t believe how lucky I am to have him.
And then I had to call my mom and give her the news…and then call my dad and give him the news…and then I saw my friend, and I told her the news. It’s strange, it was almost harder for me to tell everyone else that I didn’t make it in because I felt embarrassed about it, than it was for me to find out myself
When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade: But I know life must go on. Everyone keeps asking me, “Are you going to be okay?” My reply is, “I have to be.” I didn’t decide to go back to school to be a nurse just for something to do. I want to be a nurse so I can help people…so I am STILL going to become a nurse…I just will have to come up with a new plan. I am NOT giving up. I CAN’T!
Or Just Put Your Lemon In A Mixed Drink: Luckily, the same day that I found out the news, I had lunch planned with my mom and mom-in-law (at a mexican restaurant…FAV!) and dinner planned with my best friend (also at a mexican restaurant…DOUBLE FAV!) We shared some margaritas 🙂
Thank goodness for all the love in my life. I really am blessed.
