Points Letter

I received my points confirmation letter in the mail a couple of weeks ago (and forgot to post this). Linn-Benton Community College, where I am applying for nursing school, accepts applicants based on a point system.

There is about 5-6 terms of prerequisite courses that you need to take in order to apply for nursing, and as you may know (if you've been reading my blog) I have finished all of my prereq's and applied for nursing school. I received my points letter and they confirmed that I have 43 points. The maximum possible points are 51, but you would have to have a Ph.D, Masters, Bachelor's, and Associates to get that many.

Two other girls that were in my A&P classes also have 43 points, so if they're in, I'll probably be in too. It should only be 2 or 3 more weeks before we find out who got accepted. In the meantime, I continue to love the work that I'm doing in CCU at Albany General Hospital.

I hope to post soon about nursing school . . .

Gone Riding

Jane and I went for a motorcycle ride yesterday (Sunday) afternoon. It was a beautiful day, a few clouds in the sky and cool, but otherwise it was great. We took the King's Valley route, which is about 60 miles total, winding through some gorgeous hills and backroads.

A few months ago, when Jane was diagnosed with cancer, I thought about how much I enjoy riding with her, and told her that I always want to be able to "see you in my mirror." Here's what that looks like to me:

I don't know what I would do if she weren't there . . .
