Sunday Salon: I Can Finally Read Regular Books Again!!


Finally! I graduated from nursing school at the end of September and last Monday took my NCLEX and passed! I am a licensed nurse now! Yep. Nurse Jaimie on duty. So I put all my nursing, NCLEX prep, etc. books away for the first time in over a year.  My house looks like a normal home now!

Here are a couple pics from my pinning ceremony. My husband pinned me, he was so proud. What a wonderful night that was!


DSC_0092Yesterday we finally were able to celebrate and among other things we did, ended up at Barnes and Noble. Oh my goodness gracious am I behind in my reading! I picked up a couple books but it was difficult to hold back. I wanted everything!

When I was standing in line the women behind us were chatting and one of them said, When I get home, I’m just going to read.” I thought, wow! I can say that now too!

I have  Nook too, and for a while, that was all that I was using. But now that the novelty has worn off I have started to buy books again. I actually like having both, each has it’s place.

Here are the books I got.  I am going to start The Dante Club today because it seems like a fun and fast read. I probably need to ease mysef back into it.
