So 100% of the people we've asked have known exactly who she is and have been incredulous at the idea of anyone not knowing! Then, to add insult to injury, the book I'm reading (which takes place in Afghanistan!) talks about her and what a big deal she is. I guess I need to broaden my education of world news further than the Yahoo headlines!
Speaking of education...I finally made a (hopefully) official decision about nursing school! The last year and a half has been a roller coaster of trying to find what I want and what can actually happen. But last week I got a call from the program at my hospital offering a place in their program starting in January. It's a quick 14 month program with a job guaranteed at the end. I'm THRILLED! scared out of my mind, but thrilled. Thanks to Spence for being so dang patient with the roller coaster... Nurses (and all students out there) if you have any advice about getting back after an 18 month sabbatical, I'm open!
