My girlfriend got into nursing school!!

My girlfriend and I have been dating for about four months, and I'm totally crazy about her, but she lives about two hours away from me. In Illinois. So it's a given that she wanted to get out of there, but she's kinda stuck. She's been trying to get into nursing schools for quite a while know, but she's been getting rejected or put on waiting lists and it's really been bringing her down. She already has one college degree and graduated with almost a 3.5gpa, so there hasn't been a reason for her to get rejected. She just couldn't justify moving someplace without being able to go to school there. She's leaving for spain to visit her sister on Saturday, and is supposed to get her acceptance/rejection notice from a university while she is away. She has been worrying about this since she applied, and knew that she wouldn't be able to forget about it while she is supposed to be enjoying herself on vacation.

They called her today to tell her that they reviewed her application, transcripts, and test scores, and that they want her to attend in the fall! And over a week before they said she would know! She called me here at work to tell me, and we are both exstatic. This great news couldn't have come at a better time.

I'm so happy I just wanted to tell everyone.

Lullaby Of Foo

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

Good for her! Maybe you two can celebrate by having her give you a sponge bath.

Oh, And I'm getting another bike tonight. How much better can my day get?

I'll have to mention the sponge bath thing. Sounds like a great idea to me. maybe we'll have to take turns.

Her and I washing each other, not Sprocket Man I taking turns washing her. I've curbed my jealousy, but not that much.

As a healthcare administrator, I am acutely aware of the nursing shortage. Every bit helps. Congratulations to your girlfriend.
