Less than a week

Well, it is now Sunday, May 22 and the world as we know it did not end!!  I had forgotten that it was supposed to until this week when it was all over everywhere you looked!  When in New York City over New Years they were all over the subways passing out literature and putting up signs warning that the world ends May 21, 2011. 
Sooooooo, this means that I have a half marathon to run in less than a week!!!!  I did my last long run Friday since I had to work most of the day Saturday.  It was only 7 miles but I was slower than slow; I think it was my slowest overall average pace yet. 
I booked my hotel room on Friday! Nothing like waiting till the last minute to book a hotel room in a major tourist city on a holiday weekend!!  I actually found one 5.5 miles away and it's a lot less than I expected.  The address is not Traverse City even though it is so close and that makes a big difference in the price!  I'm happy!!! 

On the nerd side of things:  I got a 98% on a test this week!!!  I have another one on Wednesday this coming week.  I'm getting the hang of doing things at clinicals and am enjoying taking care of patients and am looking forward to my new career someday!!! 

Time for bed.

My oldest kid graduated from college today!  (actually yesterday as it's now Sunday)  My sister was the family photographer.  I will post better pictures when I get them from her.  I have to say that it was bittersweet sitting there.  All the years my kids were growing up I always told them that they were going to college.  Now, all of a sudden, there I was, sitting at college graduation!

My kid is graduating from college today!!

My oldest kid graduates from college today.  WOW!  Where did the years go???? 

He brought his cap & gown home a couple days ago so I could hang it up so the fold lines would go away.  He just got dressed, put the tassel on his cap and took the gown and left to go to meet up where he has to be. 
I will be heading out soon to go to the college graduation of my child --unreal!!!
