Studying

So I've totally been meaning to update the blog with our trip to Oregon. It just seems a bit overwhelming because there's so much I want to say and so many pictures to put up. Therefore, I have not done it yet. School started Wednesday and I'm excited, but there is so much information we covered in just one day and it all seems so foreign - it's like learning another language. I've been studying for about an hour and a half and find myself needing to take a few minute break about every 20 minutes. I guess I can blame it on the mommy brain. I've spent the last 5 years changing diapers, talking baby talk, and not getting near enough adult interaction. Now I'm thrown into a situation where I have to think in medical terms and try to grasp concepts.
I'm also working on fine tuning a schedule. I tend to keep my browser open on my computer all day long, and it's so tempting to just sit down for 10 minutes here and there throughout the day when I'm upstairs near the office. Can't do that anymore. I went out and bought a big desk calendar today. Sounds cheesy I know, but I'm going to pencil in every little thing from what chores I need to do that day, to work and school, to activities that I'm going to do with the boys. I think it will really help me stay focused since I've experienced a very small taste of what is to come.
There you have it, random thoughts from mommy mush brain. I'm headed to bed to dream about image defintions and labeling, anatomic positions, subcutaneous tissues, abscesses, hernias, hematomas, lipomas and more.....

You'll get it figured out!! Somehow we seem to get through it. I never did catch what you are going to school for exactly...:

Once you get it all hammered out and have an idea of what it is going to require study wise, it will fall into place. I really like your idea of a desk calendar, that is totally something I would do!

The medical terminology sounds awesome... you know me. LOL Stuff like that turns me on.

Tiff, that's so exciting! I was just commenting to Lee tonight about how I wanted to go back to school (someday) and take all the fun classes that I wanted to but never did...astronomy, engine basics, sewing, maybe a few religion classes. *sigh* Maybe if we ever get back to Rexburg.

I'm super excited for you, though, and I agree that a big calendar is a great idea! Good luck! We really should get together sometime, we go to Provo all the time to visit my sister. We should plan a trip to Thanksgiving Point or something.

It'll all work out, Tiff. It's just a matter of getting back into the swing of things as far as school goes. It'll come!

Oh studying, but at least you'll get your brain in to shape! Good luck. Oh and I should be able to watch the boys when they come up. I don't think I have anything planned. We are still debating whether to put Claire in preschool so if we do, that might conflict otherwise that should be fine!

You can do it! How is it going so far?
