So this quarter in school I am taking Chemistry 121, Biology 160, and PE cross training. So far I like my classes but it is only day 3. I like how my schedule is because it gives me a chance to study in between classes and also gives me time to get my labs done, and to work out too. Baili and Kristen were able to start Head Start this quarter which is so great for them. I think that they needed to be in something and they love it. They are in separate class rooms which I also think is good for them, but they are able to see each other throughout the day weather it is out on the playground or if they ask to go and see each other their teachers will let them for just a few minutes. Baili loves learning and so she is just thrilled. Thank goodness that their dad finally was ok with them going in, other wise I think I would have thrown a fit (which would have totally been justified).
I am working towards going into the nursing program to become a RN. I have always liked the idea of being a RN and also working close with people, but I have to say that I am not so great in school. I have a hard time reading and understanding what I am reading. I learn better from first had experience and so I am constantly doubting that I can do it and make it though on the other side. But I am gonna just keep plugging along and working hard, and in turn I know that I will be blessed, and that I will do fine.
On another note it is the new year and I need to lay out my goals for this year. Last year was quite the year for me and so I am trying to just take it easy this year and not stress about much. This year I am planing on reading the BOM all the way though. I have always struggled with reading my scriptures daily so this will be good for me. Also, as I am sure almost everyone in the whole world is doing, I am going to loose weight and get into shape. My sister Shavonne and her husband Derek are helping me out with this goal too. I am embarrassed at how I have let myself go. I miss the feeling of confidence and just all around feeling good about myself. For so long I hated my life and what I let people say and do to me, and how I just ended up closing up and just becoming numb. Now it is my turn to be happy and its gonna happen this year I am sure of it. And last but not least I am going to work on being a better mother to my girls. I love them so much and they need me as much as I need them.
Sorry for the long post but I just needed to get that out there so it is done. Thanks for reading and supporting me.


  1. These are great goals! I am working on getting in better shape too so let me know if you ever want to take a walk or something. And you're going to be great at school! Maybe it doesn't come as easily to you as others but you work hard and I know you can do it!

  2. Yay! I am so proud of you and all the immense trials you have endured and how strong you are. You are an amazing persong and I am so grateful you are my sister! I know you can do all the things you want to do this year and you will make a great nurse, and already are a great mother. love you!

  3. For some reason, I'm not getting your posts in my blogger reader, so sorry that I haven't commented!
    Good luck to you in school. Heath wants to be a nurse practitioner. You'll do great as a nurse! Good luck with your goals. You are such a strong and amazing person. Keep fighting!

  4. Yay for a new year, yay for new goals, and yay for you!
    I agree with everything that sisters have posted. You are a strong confident women, now I sound like a deoderant commercial! I love you!

  5. How do you work your schedule with the girls in Head Start and you in school? Do they go to a day care before or after, or do you finish school first and pick them up? I am trying to work this all out as I will be starting school in September. I am scared to start again! I keep having dreams where I forget about a whole class that I have and then I am failing it because I haven't been going. Or that I get lost and can't find where my classes are. Or the worst are the ones where I forget my kids and I wake up feeling sick. Gluck!

  6. I think those are excellent goals that all of us could do! I'm glad that you like your classes! Seriously, biology is just like high school, and so long as you don't annoy your Chem teacher like I did, you should do great! I love you so much and had a great time staying with you over the break!
