Life has been busy. Matt is working like crazy, I only get to see him 2 days out of every 2 weeks, though I am very thankful we have a job and we can now save to get our own home!! *sighs*
Matt is still pursuing his Marriage and Family Therapy degree. He has a plan B though if plan A goes south (plan A is being a Chaplain in the Army). Plan B is to work through the church and help members who the Bishop recommends to him.
We are moving to Arizona come the beginning of the year, and I don't think anyone knows how excited I am for this move! Besides having my own home, I'll be with friends, which I so need!!! Did I mention how amazing the weather is, too?! Besides the 120 degrees in the summer, the rest of the year totally makes up for it in my mind, and if I miss snow....Flagstaff is only a few hours away!!
The biggest update is that I've decided to become a RN! When we move to Arizona I'm going to pursue a BSN. I'm beyond thrilled! I've always wanted to be a nurse...really, always! I just never really had an interest to start Nursing school, it was intimidating. I figure if I start now, by they time Elise is in Kindergarten or 1st grade I'll have a job and can tend to other people instead of being stuck at home.
My desire is to work with labor and delivery! I'm looking into becoming a Midwife or CNW (Certified Nurse Midwife), which will take getting a Masters. I'm still debating what I want to do when I become a RN.
