    I stopped updating this thing when Blogger made it nearly impossible to update a "custom domain" (i.e., anything without "blogspot" in the address), and I haven't had time to get WordPress set up yet. So for now, I'm doing it "by hand," the old-fashioned way. :)

    I thought I'd wipe the slate clean, and start fresh. New page. So here's the update, for now ...

    Michael is working at Hell Town Tattoo Company in Front Royal. Great bunch of people there. :)

    I'm still an ER nurse, and now with a shiny new BSN degree! That's right -- I finished my RN-to-BSN program. I did it through Chamberlain College of Nursing, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great school! And because I can't stop for a minute, it seems, I also passed the Certified Pediatric Emergency Nurse (CPEN) exam. What's next, you ask? (It's a fair question ... my husband has asked it many times!) You'll have to check back in November/December when I'll reveal (or perhaps not?) my next "big thing." No, it's not motherhood ... THAT is one thing I can promise you! :)

    I will try to get this thing overhauled soon-ish. It's seriously due for a design refresh as well!

    I will leave you with an adorable picture ...
